    One of the most beautiful Fodera Basses I have ever seen, a true One of a Kind.
    This is virtually a " Exotic" Tom Kennedy Emperor II Elite.
    Flame Redwood Top Solid is hypnotic and Macassar Ebony Fingerboard is great too.

    Some Plus Custom Options:
    - 5 piece neck maple with Bubinga Stringers $500
    - Flame Redwood Solid Top $500
    - Duncan Dual Coil PU's $600

    Punchy Tone, Clear Lows, Tight Response, Ringing Bell Harmonics.
    Just adjusted last week with New Elixir Strings.

    Bass Specs:
    Weight - 10.5 lbs

    String Spacing - 19mm at the bridge

    Specs for the Redwood Emperor II 5 Elite:

    Body Woods

    Emperor II
    Ash Body
    Flame Maple Tone Block
    Redwood Top (Solid)
    Neck Woods

    Macassar Ebony Fingerboard

    Construction Specs

    Birth Date – November 2010
    Neck-Through Construction
    34″ Scale Length
    5 String Configuration

    Electronics Options

    Fodera / Pope Custom Preamp - Active / Passive, Single / Dual Coil, and my favourite On / Off
    Fodera / Duncan Dual Coils
    Emperor / Imperial Control Layout

    After this Bass, I prefer Emperor II shape for standup performance, balance is perfect.

    The only "detail" on this bass, is a few tiny dings on top, they are on the finish, don´t reach the wood, please check pics.

    This is a $11 K Model

    It can be Yours for only $7500, includes Conus Shipping and OHSC.

    Couldn't help but see the similarities with my Cirrus 4 Redwood. Been a big fan of the wood ever since I first laid my eyes on it. Stunning Fodera you have there. GLWTS bro!

    I have an Fbass with a rosewood top and an ebony board as well, and I get a ton of compliments on her -- as I bet anyone owning this Fodera would too -- but rather than post my bass, I'll repost a photo of the bass for sale in this thread for everyone to drool at. :)

    Looking at the pickup placement makes me really curious how this bass sounds. You wouldn't happen to have an sound or video clips, would you?

    i thought that too - a lot of those cirrus basses have redwood tops.

    awesome wood for basses.. makes a classy, "not over the top but not boring either" look.

    beautiful basses, both of 'em.
