Hi guys, I have a nice Fodera NYC Empire 5 to trade with a MTD 535 (21 prefered) The bass is all in black and in a top condition. I will add some pics and specs soon. What I am after is, MTD 535 with maple or BEM board and ash neck - ash body, I don't mind about top wood but walnut is my fav. About the NYC : Alder Body with Black color. It has 3-piece maple neck, They also use those on their custom ones. New NYCs only have 1-piece. it has Brasilian Rosewood witch is really nice and also no longer available on this models (custom option) Duncan-Fodera Pups. Mike Pope Preamp. (active/passive one) This is Victor Wooten with his NYC, Its same model but with maple board. Thanks.
