For Sale *PRICE DROP* Fodera Emperor 5 string

    For sale Fodera Emperor five string, bolt on neck. It plays as a Fodera should. Beautiful instrument with the combination of body woods and the Rock Maple neck makes for a lucious tone. I bought this, specifically a five string, for church worship, but now I am not playing it. Time for it to grace another persons' home.

    I am willing to ship within the US for a reasonable fee negotiated between myself and any potential buyer.

    I do have a sound file/recording of the instrument. I can't figure out how to upload here but I can send it through private message.

    ***Please note - It will not come with the custom Ying/Yang volume control knob. The original factory knob will be reinstalled. ******

    I am not looking for trades, thanks...

    Emperor 5 Bolt-on features a gorgeous Koa Top over a Honduran Mahogany Body with a 3-piece Hard Rock Maple Neck and Birdseye Maple Finger Board. Seymour Duncan Single Coil J/J Pickups with a 2010 Fodera / Pope Internal Preamp.

    34" scale
    38mm nut width (center of lowest string to center of highest string)
    19mm spacing at the bridge
