    $8500
    Strings:
    5
    Location:

    I'm a little reluctant to put this up for sale or trade, as I really do like this bass.
    Not only does it sound and play amazing......it's simply gorgeous in person.

    After owning a couple of basses with Redwood tops, there is a real significance this top adds to the tone that I really really like. The Macassar Ebony board really sings. I like it much better than jet black Gaboon. I also prefer the Emperor II body design over the Imperial. Seems to be more comfortable for me personally.

    Selling price is $8750 U.S. $8500 US shipped in Canada or the Lower 48 U.S. States with payment via paypal.
    Overseas (Europe and Asia) shipped price is $9000 U.S. $8750 U.S.

    As for trades, looking for 5 strings (may look at 4's) from the following list of amazing builders:
    Fodera, Wal, Alleva Coppolo, F-Bass, Kenneth Lawrence, or Carl Thompson.

    Condition is 9 / 10 - A few light dings on the top that can barely be photographed

    Weight - 10.5 lbs

    String Spacing - 19mm at the bridge

    Specs for the Redwood Emperor II 5 Elite:

    Body Woods

    Ash Body
    Flame Maple Tone Block
    Redwood Top (Solid)

    Fodera has some great comments on this bass too, so I'm not the only one that think it's awesome.
