    Price:
    6900
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    Texas
    Price lowered to $7400...... $500 price drop to $6900.

    I am offering up for sale my custom 2014 Fodera Imperial Elite. I picked this bass up personally from the Fodera shop on April 22, 2014.

    The inspiration for the build was an Imperial the Mike Bendy had built and was played by Felix Pastorius with the Yellow Jackets before getting his custom 6.

    Here are the details:
    Fodera Imperial Elite 5 string number 4948
    Solid Body, Ash body with Alder Tone block
    Indian Rosewood fingerboard
    33" scale with 24 frets
    Ash Neck
    strung B-G spacing of 17.75
    Black hardware
    Compact MG shape (a smaller take on the Imperial that I requested)
    Indian rosewood ramp
    Seymore Duncan Custom Single coils
    Fodera Hardshell Case

    The bass is in excellent condition and shows normal sign of wear. There is some wear on the bridge finish as well.

    I will send detailed pictures of any imperfections to interested buyers.

    I love this bass and an only selling to move to a 34" Emperor that I ahem already found and purchased so no trades on this.

    Priced well below the price of an MG standard.... IMG_0640. IMG_0642. IMG_0643 2. IMG_0644 2. IMG_0641. IMG_0645 2. IMG_0645 2. IMG_0641. IMG_0644 2. IMG_0643 2. IMG_0642. IMG_0640.

    I’m not sure but someone else asked me the same question today.

    I’m going to try to weigh it when I get back in town, definitely not heavy at all.

    I finally made it home and weighed the bass. I weighed it a few times and averaged the weight and got a reading right around 9.2 pounds.

    I've played this bass multiple times and all I can say is wow. Amazing tone right out the gate before any tweaks on the tone controls. This thing kills!

    GLWS Ryan!
