    After going back and forth about selling this for months I have finally decided to let it go...
    It's an Emperor Elite with quilted maple top, ash body, flame maple tone block, 3-piece maple neck, ebony board with pearl dots and Duncan dual coils with wood covers. It has been played and has a few tiny dents but nothing that would really show up in pictures. It's 35" scale and I believe it was made in 2001. It has been into the Fodera shop a couple times in the last few years for a check-up and preamp update as I live a few minutes form there and take it in for set-up.

    It plays and sounds as you would expect, but I have decided that I want a single cut Fodera. I have a 4, 5 and 6 Fodera and have always wanted a single cut, so this one has to go...I just hope the single cut I find sounds as good as this one.

    I don't know the exact weight, but it's not as heavy as my Fodera 6, but it is heavier than my 7.5 lbs Sadowsky..I would guess right around 9.

    I have the Fodera hard case, but it's in Arizona and could get it to whoever buys it in a couple of months, probably not right now. I didn't bring the case when I moved to NYC because I never anticipated selling this bass because it is so amazing.

    Price is $5700 shipped.
