    Amazing instrument that just isn't getting played enough. The story behind this bass is I bought two Monarch standards - an unlined fretless with red oak neck, walnut body and dual coils, and an unpainted Yin Yang Standard with alder body and beautiful flamed maple top. When I got them, I found that I really didn't like the dual coils, and the walnut body was heavy. So I swapped the necks and it was pretty magic. I ended up selling the fretted variant as I didn't need another fretted 4, kept this, sold it, then bought it back. In the intervening time I've pretty fully embraced extended range so I'm dropping down to just my YYD and Rob Allen fretless for 4-strings.

    Fodera Monarch "custom standard"
    alder body, flame maple top
    red oak neck
    unlined ebony fingerboard
    EMG PJ pickups, Pope standard preamp
    black hardware
    34" scale
    9.0 lbs

    $2850 shipped in the CONUS. The only way to get an equivalent bass would be to order a custom which would be over twice the cost.

    TRADES: I *might* be interested in a 5-string or 6-string fretless, 34" scale only, at least 18mm bridge spacing (19mm better).
