    Price:
    8250.00
    Strings:
    6
    Location:
    New Jersey
    This is a 2009 Monarch elite 6 string with a stunning buckeye burl top and matching headstock.
    Super low action, a very fast neck and easy to play. The bass looks great but has been played so there are a
    few marks/dings on lower horn and a ding on the headstock. Nothing major but just letting you and there are other minor marks/scuffs but still a very gorgeous instrument.

    SPecs:
    walnut body with maple tone block
    Buckeye burl top
    Buckeye burl matching headstock
    maple neck
    Fingerboard (possibly kingwood but not sure)
    34" Scale
    Fodera dual coils
    Fodera Pope Preamp
    ultralight black hardware
    Fodera Hard case
    No Tools included

    PRICE WAS: $8450, $8100
    NOW: $7950


    TRADES ACCEPTED: ALLEVA COPPOLO /SADOWSKY 5 STRING BASSES.

    I would only take one bass as trade.

    In response to trade inquiries, I may accept a partial trade for a high end 5 string bass (prefer jazz style but others will be considered).

    All inquiries via PM Only - send specs details/pic via Private Message..

    Thank you,

    This is the standard 19mm spacing. The string spacing is also adjustable.

    The weight is approx. 10 1/2 lbs. It has the ultralight hardware so the total weight is reduced quite a bit.

    Had several 5 string Foderas that were heavier.....
