Stunning singlecut bass made in the Fodera workshop in Brooklyn, NYC.
Buckeye top. Walnut body. Ebony fingerboard.
Fodera/Duncan singlecoil pickups with buckeye covers and matching ramp.
Extended B string.
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.

Piezo Pickups in Solid Brass Bridge
The piezo pickups used on the TRB models use individual bimorphous piezo elements for each string, all built into a specially designed bridge which is machined from solid brass.
Figured Maple Body with Thru-neck Construction
The TRB-series basses feature figured maple bodies that offer the requisite tone as well as outstanding visual appeal.
Because piezo pickups directly pick up the resonance of the instrument body, the body itself must be made from the finest woods and designed to deliver rich, deep tone. The neck-thru design of theses basses affords the best possible foundation for this amazing sound.Finish is transparent blue turquoise.
A lovely instrument ! I'm only really selling it as I don't have space for 3 basses plus guitars and this is by far the biggest I own.
In a moment of madness I purchased this variax 6 string off the bay, primarily because my line 6 floorboard has a variax socket so I had an interesting afternoon making odd noises and then it went back in its box.
It is Chinese made, early model, has a range of modelled guitar tones, using the cat 5 cable into a line 6 device gives you the most options and I will throw in cat 5 cable, it has the socket for one of the lockable cat 5 in a Xlr casing if you have one of those, I also have the adaptor box where you can have a psu providing power to the guitar using a stereo jack lead (not supplied). You can also put a 9v battery in the back of the guitar.
You can also have the snazzy red strap. There is a bit of a ding on the headstock, which was there when I got it. Prefer collection or 1/2 way meet. I will post at buyers expense/risk.
Open to trades.

13.08.2019 => New Fodera Nickel Strings, polished and waxed the instrument, feels like new 😉
I sell this amazing bass because I always grab my Le Fay anyway.
The bass is in good condition, technically tiptop, with usual optical used tracks (on the back of the body) and on the top plate smaller things, which I captured in the photos as best as possible.
The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.
Anyone who already knows and played Jerzy Drozd basses knows, anyway.
Exchange offers are of interest, I look forward to offers and inquiries if interested by mail.

Up for sale or trade is an Ibanez SR506E 6-String bass.

I recently bought this used from Bass Direct as I fancied trying a sixer. I really like it but I keep going back to my 4 string so this has to go.
I'm sure you know the spec but...
Neck type: 5pc Jatoba/Bubinga neck
Body: Mahogany body
Fretboard: Rosewood fretboard
Frets: Medium frets
Number of frets: 24
Bridge: Accu-cast bridge (16.5mm string spacing)
Neck pickup: Bartolini® MK-1 neck pickup (Passive)
Bridge pickup: Bartolini® MK-1 bridge pickup (Passive)
Equaliser: 3-band eq with 2 way mid frequency switch
It was made in 2014 and is in really superb condition. The neck is perfect and the frets are great. The body is basically unmarked apart from a bit of damage to the bottom edge as I've tried to show in the pictures. No effect on tone or feel of course. The electronics work perfectly. As mentioned I recently bought it from Bass Direct so it has just had a full clean and setup. I've installed a brand new set of D'Addario EXL170-6 Nickel Wound 32-130 strings so it's good to go.
It's great to play. Obviously it isn't a high end boutique bass but for what it is it's really impressive. Very well put together and feels great under the hands.
Happy to include the gig bag in the pictures (Warwick Leather Rockbag) in the deal and no problem to ship at the buyers expense.
I am open to trades... definitely 4 string, ideally passive but active also considered.
I'm particularly interested in perhaps trading for an old Japanese made Yamaha TRB4. Really interested to try a Cort Jeff Berlin Rithimic. Potentially interested in old Warwick Corvettes or Streamers.
Anyway, thanks for reading. If you're interested in making a trade or sale offer please don't hesitate to get in touch.
