    Just picked up this amazing Fodera Monarch Victor Wooten Classic recently but I’m just more at home on a 33” scale 5 string so I’ve decided to let it go as it’s a shame to just have this just sitting at home and not getting much use. This bass was made in 2005 but it could nearly pass as brand new as it’s in excellent condition (I could only find one small ding on the upper horn!) The wood for the fingerboard also came from the same batch as the one used on Victor Wootens original Monarch #37! It also has an amazing upgraded Buckeye Burl topwood that is one of the nicest I’ve ever seen! This went through the FoderaCertified Preowned program back in about 2010 so has the newer Fodera/Pope Preamp that can have the frequencies adjusted by moving little jumpers inside. Signed by Victor Wooten on the back of the headstock!! Comes with a Fodera Teardrop case. Gotoh drop D tuner installed but comes with the regular Fodera tuner too!

    I’m not looking for any trades!
