Fodera Imperial Matt Garrison fretless 5 string buckeye burl (trades considered)
Scotland, UK

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Stunning singlecut bass made in the Fodera workshop in Brooklyn, NYC.

2009 build.

Buckeye top. Walnut body. Ebony fingerboard.

Fodera/Duncan singlecoil pickups with buckeye covers and matching ramp.

Extended B string.

26 'frets'.

34" scale.

19mm string spacing at the bridge.

48m nut width.

Fodera premium padded gig bag.

Excellent overall condition. Some minor surface bumps which are unnoticeable unless closely inspected.

3 band EQ with selectable mid requency selector and coil tap switches.

I am considering late 60s/early 70s Fender Jazz basses (no refinishes) as part-trade options along with approximately half the asking price of the Fodera. 

The bass also resides in The Bass Gallery, in Camden, London where it can be viewed and played. They have appealing finance options for paying in installments too.

I have stood under this where it resides on the wall in Camden.  Staff at the shop had to ask me to put my trousers back on.

I'm considering part exchange offers. Late 60s/early 70s Fender Bass, in all aesthetic conditions, receiving approximately half the asking price of the Fodera.

      New Price:  £4400 
      I decided to sell my beautiful Fodera Emperor 6 Standard. Bought new in 2014,  i am the first owner. The Bass is in great condition, almost like new. The specs can be found on the Fodera website (link below) -  it is exactly this instrument - Fodera E6S # 001. The photos on Fodera’s website are also much nicer than mine;)
      The bass weighs only 9,8lb (4.45kg) according to my luggage scale and it comes with the original Fodera case in mint condition. I am in germany, but shipping to most  EU countries is no problem. No trades at the moment !
      Let me know if you would like to see any details or have some sound files. I am also happy to answer any question. 
      Thanks for watching !

      Hi Folks 
      I'm selling this Ibanez Musician Studio Fretless Bass on behalf of a friend of mine who's had it in his recording studio for many years but now wants to move it on. 
      Was up for £675, but It's now offered for sale at £625 or near offer. 
      As can be seen in the photos, the bass and the case are in good condition for their age, considering they're getting on for 40 years old.  
      I think the bass is the lined fretless version of the Ibanez Musician ST924WN model, as can be seen here in this Reverb advert a few years ago:
      But hopefully, @Bassassin might be able to offer some words of wisdom on this and put me right if I've got it wrong .. 😁
      The bass has recently had a once over by a local guitar/bass tech, so all the electrics are working and it's properly set up. Strings are old though, so they will need changing by its new owner. 
      Having said that, this bass really has that fretless 'mwahh' sound and it's got seriously loud pick ups! There's a great range of tones available from the active circuitry too.. 
      For anyone seriously interested, the bass can be viewed and tested by prior appointment in the Littlehampton area of West Sussex. 
      With regards to shipping, its definitely possible to send it via an insured courier service (at buyers expense), but it is a heavy bass as I'm sure anyone looking at this advert with a serious interest in the bass will know.
      I haven't weighed it, but it is heavy!! It's kind of like a Rolls Royce of a bass really - everything about it is quality and it's been built to last! 
      Anyway, if you've any questions about the bass, please send me a PM and I'll go back to the owner to get you an answer, though that may take a few hours or so depending on his availability.
      Thanks for looking! 😊

      I am selling a Fodera Monarch in pristine condition. The Bass has just had a fresh set of strings and a set up by Chris McIntyre. Happy to travel up to 200 miles from Edinburgh to deliver, otherwise buyer needs to organise but open to negotiating a workable solution. The instrument comes with the relevant paperwork and Fodera case. No offers
