    Price:
    3350
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    Texas
    **Friday night special - $3350 shipped CONUS**

    **Dropped to a firm bottom line price of $3500 shipped. I will still entertain partial trades listed below but the price for a purchase is firm**

    2006 Monarch “New Standard”, from the era when standard wasn’t so standard.

    Like new. No marks. Perfect condition with non-original case.

    I have been told that this is the very first “standard”with a matching headstock. To get these options now (tilt back headstock, 3-piece neck, exotic wood, etc) would now require you to order a custom and pay much more for the bass. The photos are not the best quality...the wood looks much nicer in person.

    34” scale
    24 Large frets
    Fodera branded D-tuner
    Fodera / Pope preamp (2-band with active or passive mode)
    MOP dots
    Mahogany body
    Bubinga top
    Indian rosewood fretboard
    3 piece maple hard rock neck
    Satin finish
    Black hardware
    EMG’s P/J

    $3500 shipped CONUS and the price is firm. Any international buyers or AK/HI buyers please contact me for a shipping quote.

    String spacing is 19mm and is slightly adjustable at the saddles.

    Understood. What I have seen with Fodera is that you really don’t get a light bass unless you ask for chambering. My main player is a 33” scale monarch and it’s 9.6, but balances great and I can play it all night even with my health issues.
