I hate to do this, but unfortunately our car lease termination bill was *way* more than anticipated and I am still paying off my vacation ... Absolutely stunning Fodera Emperor Deluxe - chestnut top, alder body, ebony board, very clean gold hardware and updated Pope preamp. Comes with tear drop case. Sounds and plays like a dream. I have a Hipshot D-tuner that I will include for an extra $50 (I will also send the original tuner). FS for $5,500, which is much, much less than a new Emperor. Split shipping in the lower 48. Local pickup in the Seattle area. I am really not looking for trades unless substantial cash is involved from your end, or you have a Sadowsky Will Lee + cash. Low ball offers (this includes offers to trade for a $1000 bass plus $2000 cash) will be ignored. Thanks!
