    Okay, I'm sure a lot of you have seen this bass floating around the internet. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's as unique as can be!

    Here's the back story. The bass was built at the end of 2008 for Winter NAMM, 09. The metal work on it was done by a NYC Jeweler that Vinny had become friends with over time. The bass was finished, but after some deliberation the decided to stick with the traditional Fodera style for NAMM. I did some horse trading with the jeweler, and picked this up recently. I'm the first owner of this bass, and it plays and sounds incredible! The artwork is very unique, and I quite like it! But, for those that aren't into it, everything is removable. This finish is also a color that I haven't seen before, since it's a bit different than the other blue you can find these in. Truly one of a kind!

    The specs are the usual for these, with the exception of the custom options. Right at 10lbs, but I'm going to get a more accurate weight tomorrow.

    Now, why am I wanting to trade this off? Well, even though i recently got this and it's literally perfect, I'm just wanting to try something different. MTD, Smith, Fbass, etc. 5 string only please.

    I'm having some problems uploading pictures taken from my phone, so I'm attaching the photos that the seller gave me. If you want to see anything, shoot me a pm!

    I think it's a beauty and if I were ever to get a Fodera, it would be a NYC

    I've always loved the NYC basses. Timeless design with Fodera playability and tone.

    I have a trade in the works, but I'm just updating some pics now that TB is allowing me to post my personal pictures. Headstock plate is currently off.
