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.

Fodera Monarch 5-String
34" scale lenght
24 frets

19mm stringspacing
Ebony Fingerboard
3-piece Maple Neck
Buckeye-burl Top and matching Headstock

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.

      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 !

      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.
