    Fodera - N.Y.C. Empire Bass - Condition excellent.

    Frets are 100%
    - This bass has had flats/tapewounds on it's entire life. (See pics, That close up Is 3rd FRET))

    No major dings of any kind. I cannot call it mint as the thin nitro finish has some checking in several areas and the black pickguard has obvious swirls and scratches. Its a black bass and every possible thing shows. But all in all it is a stunning bass and easily 8.5-9 / 10 * One of the volume pots is scratchy at the end of the taper* I am currently OUT of contact cleaner* It does not seem to be going away with knob use only.

    Only possible trade options are high-end DIs (I have many and would prefer those I don't have or 4 string jazz bass passive style are possible) Trade value $SOLD shipped in a used Mono classic gig bag.

    Currently strung with Labellas
    Handmade - Top woods
    Alder Body
    21 Fret, 34" Scale Maple Fingerboard
    Maple Neck
    Block Inlays
    Bolt On
    (Active/Passive) - Most had the Mike Pope DESIGNED pre.
    Fodera J Pickups
    Chrome Hardware
    Factory Strap Locks
    19mm Fodera Bridge
    Gotoh Tuners
