      Fodera Monarch Standard 4 strings from 2014 in mint condition, hardly ever played. Bolt-on neck, Fodera/Duncan dual-coil pickups and Fodera/Pope Standard Preamp with 3-band EQ, 5A flame maple top. Original hardshell case in excellent condition included, with all original documents and truss rod key. Very light at 3,9kg. Nothing to comment about this bass' playability and sound. The best there is, in my opinion.
      Price is 3600 EUR. 3500 EUR . 3200 EUR.
