SOLD Fodera Emperor 6 Standard

Recommended Posts

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 !

Good heavens! What a lovely bass. And in Fodera terms what appears to be a reasonable price. GLWTS

      Imperial Matthew Garrison shape with custom specifications. 
      4000-4500 GBP is the ballpark amount of cash I would look for to be included in a trade with a fretted bass I am looking for. 
      I am enthusiastic to negotiate part trades for your:
      early 1970s Jazz bass, especially naturally highly relic'd, not mint condition. Lakland USA Joe Osborn 4 string Jazz bass. Pre-EB Musicman Stingray.  Moollon J5  Stunning single-cut bass made in the Fodera workshop in Brooklyn, NYC. This is not the Standard bolt-on model.
      2009 build.
      Buckeye top. Walnut body. Ebony fingerboard.
      Fodera/Duncan singlecoil pickups with buckeye covers.
      Matching buckeye ramp.
      Extended B string.
      26 'fret' positions.
      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 frequency selector and coil tap switches.

      Selling this one is a tough decision really, in fact I would never have expected selling it, but times are changing for me and I am thinning the herd which leads to selling great basses that happen to be in the same sonic area as others I have. 
      Up for sale is my fat, funky, Fender-ish Fodera VW Deluxe Custom 5 built in 2004.
      35” (easy to play: no additional stretching compared to most 34” basses)
      Madascar Kingwood board
      Dove-tail maple neck
      Tiger maple front
      Mahogany body (I think) 
      4,5 kgs
      Seymour Duncan dual coils
      Dual action truss rod
      Some playing wear but overall in very good condition and technically 100%. Very solid bass, (low) action, string spacing (+/- 19mm) and neck curve anyway you like it.
      Comes with original hard shell case

      Selling a Fodera Emperor II Elite from 2001 with the following specs:
      Amazing Buckeye Burl Full Top
      Alder Body
      Brazilian Rosewood Board w 21 frets !
      35" scale, 19mm String spacing at bridge
      Pope Preamp, Seymour Duncan Single Coils in 70s positions
      Gold Hardware
      4,58 kg
      Top codition with only 2 dings on the body back (ca 2-3 mm).
      The 21 frets board and the 70s single coils make this a slap monster with a warm timbre due to the board wood !
      Low action. Everything works fine.
      Asking 6200 GBP (6800 EUR) plus shipping from Duesseldorf (Germany).
      Not looking for trades unless you have a nice Fodera Neckthrough 6 with 34" or less.
