    Here is an excellent "modern Jazz" bass in mint condition that was featured at the 2006 NAMM show. It looks, plays and sounds great- similiar to my other Fodera but with even a more traditional Jazz bass vibe - kind of a great combination of both worlds. Its punchy , open, and big sounding but has a kind of "sophistication" that is part of the Fodera sound. The reason why I'm selling is because I already have another Fodera ...and I'd like to "thin the herd"..so if someone wants it here's your chance to save some $$....
    The top is fantastic and quite dramatic- a great 3 dimensional piece of quilted maple, beautiful ash grain on the back too, and a lovely headstock. Its a very reasonable weight and the action is low with no buzz. Pre sounds killer in these basses- but it also goes passive with a passive tone ( like other Foderas). B string is tight and very responsive. It's pretty rare to see any of these up for sale used - at least that I've seen.

    Here are the specs:
    -34"
    -ash body
    -quilted maple top , headstock
    -3 piece maple neck
    -maple fingerboard
    -Fodera custom Aero pups
    -Pope preamp

    Bass comes with original Fodera hardshell case in mint cond too.
    These basses list for $4100.

    *$2900* . I will consider other forms of payment but prefer Paypal, and also will consider shipping to other countries depending on costs.

    Sorry, no trades.

    If anyone has any questions feel free to PM me.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    The quilt on that bass is incredible. The only other bass with quilt that nice was that Ritter that EBMatt had (still has?) If I had $3,100, I would buy that bass just to look at it.:cool:
