    Fodera Monarch Elite 5 FEELER
    Bubinga Back with Mahogany Body Wings
    Ash Tone Block
    Full quilted Maple Top with Matching Quilted Maple Headstock
    3 Piece Maple Neck with Birdseye Maple Fretboard
    Beautiful Abalone Blocks and Matching Abalone Butterfly
    Birdseye Maple pickup covers
    Fodera Pope custom 3-band preamp
    Fodera Duncan Custom Dual Coil Pickups
    35" scale/ 19mm spacing
    Fodera Teardrop Case
    Bass was autographed on the headstock by famous bass players Wooten, Wellington and a few others.

    Bass is warm sounding but has an awesome slap sound! You can get a nice 70's jazz bass sound or a really articulate/ percussive fingertone!

    I can’t imagine how much that would cost to build now. What a great deal.

    I still remember the Roscoe trade deal we did back in 2009. I got an SKB 3006 from you. Yeah, those were my first days of trying to play 6 strings.

    I do. LOL!

    That was a great bass. I gave up on 6ers for 5ers and haven’t looked back!

    Is there Black Friday in South Korea too? :D
    If there's someone that wants a Black Friday deal today, let me know. I've had so many people kicking tires on this one that I'm hesitant to change the ad. This would be for a seriously interested buyer...:bassist:
  20. They started using that phrase in here just recently, but there's no big deal really.
    This country is not made for the customers.
    SAMSUNG EMPIRE! because this country is made for the customers to be ripped off!! :D

    I'm one of those tire kickers as well, sir. All maple is just my dream~
