    Fodera Monarch 5 Elite, strung E-C. Stunning instrument, but I've migrated back to 4s and I can't justify keeping this around the house not getting played. Zero issues and dead mint condition. The specs:

    Fodera Monarch 5 Elite (neck-through)
    walnut body (chambered)
    Brazilian rosewood top
    5-piece maple/bubinga neck
    ebony fingerboard
    34" scale
    24 frets (small)
    17.5mm bridge spacing
    10.3 lbs

    Includes the original case (never out of the house) and all tools/case candy. The bass is strung E-C from Fodera. It can easily be converted to B-G - either swap nuts or open up the existing nut slots. I did that with my other Fodera 5 and had zero issues going back and forth between E-C and B-G strings.

    New this would be over $11K.

    Sell for $8250 shipped in the CONUS. No overseas sales due to the rosewood top. Sorry, not interested in any trades as I've got what I need at the moment.

    If you can download a 50MB file, here is a wav file from the last album - was recorded live, combination of recorder in house and direct from Monique:


    That said bass may be sold - just waiting on payment. Been having some paypal snafus...
