    The pending trade fell through due to international shipping. Available again!

    Open to trades + cash. Also open to layaway options. A fodera can be a sizable investment. If you have good talkbass or reverb ratings, I am willing to discuss layaway or other creative payment options to get this amazing bass in your hands.

    This bass is simply perfect. It's in mint condition and feels unreal. I bought this bass thinking I'd simply get used to a 4 string again, but I miss my low B string. I have other 5 strings, but I am planning on consolidating to one single 5 string bass to become my main bass. This has been my dream bass for years, but after playing 5 strings for the past decade, I just feel at home with a low B.

    I love the range of tones that are possible with this bass. I'm not going to go into them, because I can literally dial in any tone I could possibly want from P to Jazz, modern, vintage.....this bass knows no limitations.

    The trades I would be interested in are: 5 or 6 string MTD, Alleva Copplo, US Spector, Fodera, Adamovic, Mattison. I am open to 2 for 1s and trades plus cash. Feel free to shoot me any ideas.


    Scale Length: 34"
    Nut: Brass at 1-5/8" width
    Body: Buckeye Burl top on one piece Mahogany body
    String Spacing: 19mm
    Neck: Deluxe dovetail, old growth Pau Ferro fingerboard on Maple with pearl inlay dot and tulip fret markers
    Pups: Custom Seymour Duncan with Buckeye Burl pickup covers
    Mike Pope Preamp with passive / active controls

    The body looks to me Mahogany.

    You were correct! It is a one piece mahogany body. Adding pics of the spec sheet. Appreciate you catching that!

    Absolutely gorgeous AND I love the fact that you recognize that not all of us are able to plink down the amount to buy a used car.
    That means a lot to most of us, I'm sure...

    Somebody offered me something similar for a bass I was interested in a while ago and I thought it was so cool! There are so many basses I would have jumped on if I would have had some payment options.

    Absolutely beautiful bass! If I didn't have a chestnut finish one then I'd be all over this.
