    This is a great sounding and playing bass. The neck reminds me of my Celinder that I still regret selling but, like the Celinder, this bass is a bit too much for my old back!

    Alder body with Candy Apple Red finish.
    34" scale neck with pearl blocks and binding.
    Pope 2 band preamp. Controls are front pup vol and master tone stacked, rear pup vol (pull for passive), bass and treble.
    One tiny scratch on rear that won't photograph otherwise excellent.
    Weight is 10lbs on the bathroom scales (1lb less and it wouldn't be going anywhere).
    Ships in a Fodera teardrop case in great shape.

    I'm asking [DEL]$2350[/DEL] [DEL]$2250[/DEL] [DEL]$2150[/DEL] $2050 this weekend only! shipped in the US. I have my eye on something so not really looking for trades but you're welcome to try.

    35" scale and I believe the body is alder though not 100% sure. I'll check with Kevin tomorrow.

    For some reason I thought that these basses were 34" scale. Do you know if they offer a choice of scale length?

    Yes I thought these were typically 34" scale but someone PM'd me that they had seen a 35" before. I just emailed Fodera to check but I'm pretty sure it's 35".

    We haven't gotten the email yest (that I know of), but I remember the bass -- it is a goodie and it's 34" scale.

    Good luck,

    Jason

    Jason,

    I stand corrected. I measured again and it is 34". I coulda sworn 35" last night (TWSS!).

    It is a goodie, you're making me think again on this!

    Final price drop! $2150!!! If it doesn't sell at this I'll probably hang on to it. Steal at this price.

    I wish I had the cash, this would settle my GAS for at least 6 months - maybe more! :)
