    the current retail price on this is 10,889 dollars (just received info from new fodera manager on 10-23-09). after looking at what dealers are actually doing discount wise on foderas, it looks like 15% or so is the number which puts the street on this at 9200 give or take.

    im asking 6800 + shipping.
    im not selling this to pay off bills or pay my rent, so please no lowball offers;)

    ive had some interesting trade plus cash offers, but ideally id like to make a straight cash deal as id only be selling whatever id take in. dont let that stop you from pm'ing me with ideas though

    im also not set in stone on the price, but take in mind what the street price is on this. the last fodera i sold to fund this bass had the same specs except with no blocks. it sold for 75 percent of the street price and it sold fast. and at that time fodera was actually delivering ordered basses in a year from order. that aint happening right now so feel free to run an offer by me, just know that if its 5k straight, thats not going to happen

    new info on actual list price above. turns out the price martha gave me(i couldnt get joey on the phone) was too low according to the current price list. ive confirmed the actual list price with our own just thumpin' who is now manager and partner at fodera.
