I recently picked up a beautiful 2009 Fodera Matt Garrison Custom. I bought it from the original owner who purchsed it directly from Fodera. This is without a doubt the best bass I have ever played. I have said that before but this time I mean it. it's actually the first Fodera of this level that I have owned and got to really go at and I get the price man. It is next level. That said it's too much for me and I have too much money into it so I am offering it up for sale or a trade plus cash my way. I am completely open to trades as long where I see 3000-4000 in return. The only exception there would be for an Emperor Custom but I would still like to see 1500-2000 in that trade. I would also consider 2 for 1's as long as I am able to sell one of them. As for trades I would love to get my hands on another 34" scale Fodera and I am all partial to Dingwalls, Spectors, MTD's and Skjolds. Active 5 strings only please. The bass has been played and has some minor wear. A few very minor dings and some very minor scratching but the neck is fantastic and the imperfections are very small and hardly noticeable. You can see the imperfections in the attached photos. It is a stunning instrument. It was serviced by George Furlanetto in 2012 when the original owner wanted to restring it B to G (it is currently strung E to C). George didn't like the tension on the B string he was getting and also didn't like having too much of the non tapered portion of the string wrapping around the string post so he installed a through body hole for the B string. This was done by George Furlanetto and suggested by George. It can be clearly seen in the photos. Price includes the original Fodera gigbag (well used but still fully functional) and shipping in North America.
