  1. Hi, nice Bass. Please can you tell me: Stringspacing at bridge ( please measure from mid B-String to mid G-String) Is this really a 34 " scale lenght? MTD does mainly 35" scale. Are examples to hear this bass available? For example youtube? Year, this bass is built in? Why do you sell it? Thank you very much Best regards Uli

  4. Beautiful Ken Smith 5 string bass in the coveted BT or vintage shape. Exceptionally beautiful Ebony top. Year of construction 1995, the golden period at Ken Smith. The bass is exceptionally light for a Ken Smith with 4,4kg. The bass was loved and played a lot, so traces of use are visible, but overall it is in excellent condition for its age. The tuners were exchanged by the previous owner for the Gothoh Light-Tuners. Later Ken Smith used the same tuners as well. The originals are included. 5-piece body: Ebony Top, Mahagony Core and Walnut Back, each with one maple layer in between. 5-piece neck, 3 strips of maple with probably Morado or Pao-Ferro stripes. Fingerboard also probably Morado or Pao-Ferro, but I'm not sure about that. Neck with graphite rods, this is recognizable by the G in the serial number. Had several Smith basses, but this one has the most beautiful neck. Flatter than the one I was allowed to hold in my hands. There is a Smith Teardrop case. This case was bought by the previous owner from the bay due to the completion. But the case is in a good condition, has obviously seen a lot of the world. The condition of the case does not correspond to the condition of the bass. But ultra cool, vintage and hardcore managed. Antests possible near Ingolstadt. But beware: is addictive ... ;-)) No Trades. I need some Money, otherwise i would never sell this outstanding Bass. Shipping with DHL.

  11. Hi,

    Interested in your Pre Gibson Tobias. Some questions please:

    What´s it serial nr.? Whats the stringspacing at bridge and nut?

    What its exact weight?

    On one picture from above you can see, that the strings, especially the B and E string is not straight over the bridge, it seems to be bent. Was the saddles modified to get a wider stringspacing?

    Are soundexamples available? (haven´t to be that great, but important)

    Thank you very much.

    Best regards

      Hi Uli
      Serial is 1804. String spacing I will have to measure when I get the bass back from a mate that borrowed it for a studio gig. At the bridge I will estimate 18mm. Will check.
      The B string does not run straight from the back of the bridge to the saddle. I don't know why. There is no sign of any modification what so ever, and every part looks original. So I believe that is has been this way since day 1.
      Will get back to you with a recording.

      regard

  16. This bass is my dream and he looks and plays that way too. Sound and playability is outstanding. After trying out around 10 other Fodoras at Thomann, I have chosen this one very clearly! Made in 2017, end of the year. The bass was not giged. He would stay home and played in my rooms only (no smoking, no animals). And with 4.5 kg is a very light Fodera 5 Custom! A Fodera is a Fender-Concept in a perfect way. Sound, playability, craftsmanship etc. Specs: Fodera Monarch 5-String 34" scale lenght 24 frets 19mm stringspacing Ebony Fingerboard 3-piece Maple Neck Buckeye-burl Top and matching Headstock Mahogany Body Bass has 4,5 kg, so it is the lightest 5-string Foderas i had my hands on Pope Fodera Custom Electronik Fodera Teardrop Case The Pictures are mine (unfortunately made with my not very good photo of my mobile device) except 2, made by Fodera. If someone is interested to visit this play: you are very welcome. It is located nearby Ingolstadt, home of Audi cars. Also is possible to skype if interested in this bass. Shipping with DHL with actual costs only. Depends on country and insurance. See international shipping site of DHL or ask. Shipped in original Fodera carton box.
