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)
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
Brazilian Rosewood Board w 21 frets !
35" scale, 19mm String spacing at bridge
Pope Preamp, Seymour Duncan Single Coils in 70s positions
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.
For sale Emperor Standard Classic in beautiful fiesta red. I guess is the lowest price on the planet for such a bass.
Price drop to 3550£ or 3900€ plus shipping.
Trade value or partial trade value 4000£ or 4500€
Please see below for trade options!
Bass is from 2018, really good conditions. With Og Fodera case. Buyers pays shipping. (Sorry, spotted 2 more cosemetic imperfections. Don’t play this that much.)
Not super heavy but not the lightest 😜 4,8 Kg. You can tell where the tone is hidden.
Neck is a joy to play, effortless, fast, easy, has a really smooth satin finish that helps a lot, and i personally really like it.
SD dual coil, 3 piece neck, amazing birdseye fretboard, super balanced, in one word Fodera. Hope you enjoy the new picture.
Please ask for more pics and info.
