  1. Selling my MINT Xotic XJ1T5 Natural. Ash Body Maple Board with Luminarc Dots, 34’ 18mm Spacing 4,4 kg Xotic Pickups in wooden covers Xotic Preamp (V/V/T passive, B/M/T active, Hi/Mid Select Switches, Act/Passive) Xotic Gigbag (also like new) Absolutely like new ! Everything works fine ! SOLD
  2. Fodera Imperial 5 from 2004 in like new condition. The shown pictures are from March 21 and not optimized in any way. Super rare Brazilian Tulipwood Full Top and Board (this has been a 3000 USD upgrade and is currently not offered anymore by Fodera. Brazilian Tulipwood is a Dalbergia species and should not be mistaken for North American Tulipwood which is a common light wood used for bodies. 35" scale, 22 frets and 19mm spacing at bridge. 5pc Maple Neck. The Tulipwood is attractively contrasted by Purpleheart pickup covers and dots. The body is made of Ash. Pickups are Aero Dual Coils, preamp is the famous Pope. The bass has been well cared for and condition is like new. Truss rod, electronics, hardware - everything works as expected. OHSC included. SOLD !

  4. 5500 EUR = 4722 GBP at current exchange rate 🙂
  5. Thanks Nikos. And it plays and sounds superb !
  6. Just made a very smooth trade deal with Nikos. Excellent communication, a friendly and serious seller - and a true bass connaisseur ! Highly recommended ! Enjoy the bass Nikos !
  7. Second smooth deal with Milan. Fast and reliable ! Highly recommended ! Enjoy the basses 🙂
  8. That is a wonderful bass in excellent condition for this age ! The top seems to me more like Ebony which should contribute to an overall quicker response.. What are the two switches for ? The original TCT Preamp had no switches. Anyway a piece of history ! And one of the nicest bass designs ever imho...
  9. Selling my just traded-in MTD 6 string. It is a great player and one of the earlier basses Michael Tobias has built. It has spent most of its life with an active preamp and a huge power supply jack built into the body. According to the previous owner (a fellow BCer) Michael himself restored the bass to its original state, re-installed the original Bartolini pre and closed the hole with a matching wood part. The quality of the work is excellent as expected. The bass has a wonderful low action and with its 3,9 kg it is a featherweight, considering it is a 35" 6er ! Amboyna Burl Top (that is a VERY expensive wood today) Leightweight Ash body Maple neck and board Wenge cap on headstock and Wenge plates Bartolini pickups and preamp (V/Bal/B/M/T and Mid frequency switch) 21 frets 18 mm spacing at bridge 35" scale 3,9 kg (true !) Original HSC (has seen better days) Everything works fine. Frets have long life left. SOLD
  10. Oh it was yours ? Have you been the first owner ??
  11. Important note: Buyer‘s from within UK should be aware that for imports from EU to UK since Jan 1st the UK VAT will be applicable. This VAT has to be paid by the UK buyer once the goods are crossing the borders. Selling my 90s Fodera Imperial 6 - which has the nicest body and neck shape - and the deepest and most crisp sound of any Fodera I owned (and I had some ...). Mahogany body (up to 2000 or so Vinnie used frequently Honduran Mahogany, a wood that is used in Acoustic Guitars and is well known for its extraordinarily tonal capabilities. Bubinga Top 36" Neck with a Rosewood Board (looks like Kingwood or Amazon, close to Brazilian) and 28 frets Locking Bridge Hazlab Preamp Bartolini Pickups 19mm at Bridge 5 kg Fodera Teardrop Case The neck is asymmetrically shaped (like the older Tobias basses) which feels great ! The body is nicely shaped (like all of the 90s Imperials) and thinner than usual. The action is VERY low and allows neckbreaking fast licks (if they are in the fingers). Frets are top, everything works fine. SOLD
  12. Yes, this unique and fantastic Fodera is now living in France.
