    Fodera Imperial 5 Elite MG

    This MG-shaped Imperial 5-String Chambered Walnut Body, Alder Tone Block, Ebony Fingerboard and Red Oak Neck. Tonally this bass is warm and punchy, with a deep, fat low end and clear, bell-like highs. Camatillo top with nice sapwood features.

    It cuts through the mix beautifully. Nice low action. Just under ten pounds.

    I'm spending most of my time on 4 strings at this point, so it is time to part with this beauty.

    Here is a YouTube video (different bass, but same tonewood combination) to give you a sense of how it sounds:
