    Here's a weird one. A friend of mine who works for a Music Store here in Nashville has come into possession of a mint 2003 Fodera Imperial Elite 5 string neck-thru bass. The instrument has never been played. It was literally sealed in the Fodera shipping carton. The owner bought it as an investment and never even opened the cardboard Fodera shipping box to take the hard case and bass out. It's literally mint. I have no idea of what to tell him it's worth. List on one of these now is over 11K. Jason or one of you Fodera guys, what should I tell him? I did tell him to call you, Jason, and give you the serial number. The bass dates from 2003.

    You should post this on the most recent Fodera Club thread. You will get a quick answer.

    It completely depends on all of the specs and woods...as with anything, the devil is in the details. I'd be happy to talk you through it if you emailed me a serial number and photos to:

    jdesalvo@fodera.com

    That said, O am away until Monday...running a marathon this weekend down in Texas!

    Regards,
