    Up for sale is an Fodera Imperial Elite 6 string. 19mm spacing, 35" scale. Koa top, Korina body with sugar maple tone block. 3 piece ash neck kingwood fingerboard. Made in 2006. I'm the second owner. I purchased this bass in 2012. Just haven't been playing it much as I have another Fodera I'm using more. Not looking for any trades.

    Has some minor playing wear such as some wear around some of the contours and a bit on the top. Nothing major. Plays wonderfully as a Fodera should. Here are the specs from the previous owner. From what he told me, he lived in Hawaii when this bass was made and was able to secure the Koa from a Kia collector there and Fodera agreed to use that wood for the top. Definitely a rare and fine piece of Koa.
