    Up for sale or trade is my AMAZING Fodera Yin Yang Standard 4. Of all the Fodera's I've owned, and many know me to have owned some exceptional customs, I can't say enough about the Standards. They're beyond and exceptional value.....and have everything you need in a bass.

    Fodera hit a home run with this particular Yin Yang Standard 4. It has all the tone and playability anyone would need. It does have some minor blemishes as expected from a used instrument that can't be seen from 3 feet away, but if you can get past them, you've got a world class instrument. Send it in to Fodera for some "spa treatment" if you're a stickler for appearance. I know these basses had paint issues back in the day.....and this one shows signs of it, just look at the pictures. I'd bet Fodera would be very helpful with making this bass perfect so to speak, but for me......I'm more about how it plays and sounds. Worth much more to me.

    Asking price is $4000 U.S. shipped in the Continental U.S. or Canada with payment via paypal. Overseas shipping possible at a premium. There will be no price drops on this bass, but I may be flexible on price, but you're going to have to make an offer. TransferWise may be another payment service I would consider using as well.

    As for trades, brands of interest: Alleva Coppolo, Wal, or F-Bass.
    Preference for 5 strings, but I will consider 4's. Won't do 6's, sorry.

    Please note that I'm going to be on vacation from April 13th to the 18th. I will still respond to sale or trade inquiries at that time but the bass can't be shipped and I can't take it with me.

    Beautiful instrument. The Yin Yang was my dream bass until I bought the Fodera Monarch Deluxe a few weeks ago.
