In many of our builds the top wood plays a fairly small role in the overall tone of the finished instrument.* Not so with a Bona Imperial.* The density and weight of Olive wood adds some definite brightness to the overall mix. http://www.foderaguitars.com/Main/NewBornDetails.aspx?FeaturedItemID=430 Bass is 100% Perfect Condition, not a single mark or scratch on it. Has not been gigged with and has only been used in a smoke free studio. Comes in original fodera case with all paperwork and accessories. Will ship out from Australia through DHL Express to anywhere in the world, 3-5 business day transit time (unless customs hold it up), US buyers won't have to pay import duties (as it's made in the US) but other countries outside Australia and the US probably will. Price is firm, only possible trade i'd consider would be a Jerzy Drozd 33" Oracle with 17mm spacing. Preferably 6 string but would also consider a 5 string. I will give you a fair price on trade for the right bass. NO OTHER TRADES !!!!!
