    I keep going back and forth with selling this bass, as usual:) The best playing and sounding Fodera I've owned, but I just want a nice 4 string jazz bass. I'm playing mainly upright (4 string) and when I switch to the 5 string electric I occasionally biff while reading charts.

    Excellent condition, barely any wear
    mahagony body
    flame maple top and headstock
    maple neck
    indian rosewood board with tulip inlays
    emg PJ pickups under soapbar casings
    pope pre
    35 inch scale
    10 lbs
    OHSC

    According to Jason at Fodera these are the same pickups in Victor Wooten's five string which kill on this bass.

    If it were alder I never would have owned it:p and the tone would suffer accordingly, my personal preference:)
     
  4. Whhhaaaaa???!!! Alder rules! You've done it now buddy. ;)

    EMG PJ under soapbar casings? Interesting, but I must ask: why?

    The Neck PUP is designed to sound like a 5-string P PUP and the Bridge PUP like a 5-string J-PUP. Essentially this is a 5-string version of a Monarch Deluxe with EMG P-J PUPS...

    Why? When it was originally built, I would imagine the person for whom we were building it wanted the P-J sound in a 5-string...

    ;)
