    SOLD !

    Selling this Blonde Beauty in MINT condition. The bass is like new, nearly unplayed. I got it as part of a bigger trade and would like to offer it here before I try to become familiar with it. Just prefer 34" basses most of the time.

    Fodera Emperor II 5-string - 5A Quilted Maple

    Full Quilted Maple Top
    Ash Body
    Birdseye Maple Board, Abalone Blocks, 24 frets
    35 scale
    Gold Hardware
    Gold Knobs
    Factory installed Hipshot detuner
    Wooden Ramp (Maple)
    Dual Coils in wooden covers
    Pope preamp (newest version)
    Weight: 4,9 kg
    Birth Year: 2011

    This blonde beauty is like new - absolutely not a single mark on it. It even smells new ! Action is low and the sound is typical Fodera authoritative. 4.9 kg sounds heavy, but the bass feels much lighter, it is well balanced on the strap.

    The bass has been built in late 2011 and is still visible on the Newborn page of the Fodera site. Instead of the black ramp shown there it has a matching Maple ramp now.

    A factory-installed detuner allows for wall breaking lows with a deep A. The B string sounds fully integrated.

    The sound is quite open in the treble and even along all registers down to a deep low end. Wonderful slap tone.

    Original teardrop hardcase included - like new as well.
