    I just bought this knowing that it might not work for me. Too good to pass up a chance of dipping my toes into the magical world of Fodera. Well, the 35" scale & 19mm spacing are just too much for what I'm comfortable with.

    The ONLY trade I'd be interested in is another Fodera 6 String Imperial that's 34" or 33" and 18mm or less spacing.

    It's in excellent condition, a few minor scuffs here and there, but nothing major. I tried to capture different angles/light in hopes of anything to show up, for example along the contour edges of the back. A fresh oil rub down for the face of the bass and it would look brand new.

    Will ship in a Fodera box and in the mint condition Fodera case which includes paperwork, original black plastic knobs, gold straploks, etc. Here are the full specs:
