    I have an Emperor 5-string Standard (serial number 002) on order with Fodera slated for an April delivery. I just put money down on an MGS so I'm am letting my spot for the ES5 go. Here is how it would work...

    You would send me the $1000 down payment, at which point I will advise the Jason at the shop to transfer my order to you. In April you'd pay the $4750 balance and take delivery directly from the factory.

    PM me if you're interested. The first one to do so will get it.

    Here are all the specs: http://www.fodera.com/Main/NewBornDetails.aspx?FeaturedItemID=267

    NOTE: this is for an ES5 only, and will not get you any other model. I saw and heard the prototype for this bass and it sounds absolutely killer.

    Great reviews in the March issue of Bass Player Magazine of the Emperor Standard! If you've ever had any doubt, this review should seal it (short of playing one in person)...

    Let me see, why would you want this?

    1) This is a Fodera!
    2) Delivery in April! (not the standard wait time)
    3) Incredible reviews from Bass Player Magazine!
    4) Serial Number #002!

    First PM saying "I want it!" will get this brand-new bass from the factory!

    Holy Snikees, Batman! Great deal for someone here. I played Andy's 4 string Fodera and can only imagine how awesome the 5 string must be. Great deal from a great TBer.
