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.
MY FEEDBACK THREAD
Fodera Imperial Elite Custom made in USA in 2001, excellent conditions (some scratches on the bridge). Plays like butter! Gorgeous tone and look.
5 string (the low B is do DIE FOR)
Mahogany Body, Buckeye Burl top and a Birds Eye Maple tone block
Matched headstock with Masaccar Ebony truss rod cover
3-piece Maple neck wit Ebony fingerboard
34 inch scale
Seymour Duncan / Fodera pickups
Fodera active preamp
Comes with original case and tools.
I'm looking for a straight sale, but I may consider a trade or partial trade with pre-cbs Fender Precision.
New (to me) 1996 Sadowsky NYC Modern 5!
Currently outfitted with Seymour Duncan / Fodera ‘NYC’ pickups and a Glockenklang 2-band pre. There was some discolouration and screw hole repair damage from a previous pickguard, so I made and installed a pickguard to cover it up and I think it looks way better (before and after photos in the post). Run passive here, outer coils selected, blended towards neck, tone flat.
It also came with the original EMG 40Js and the Sadowsky pre, which might find its way in again at some point; have to say it already sounds terrific as it is, but seems crazy to have a Sadowsky NYC without the Sadowsky pre in it.
Going to live with it a while, but if I really love it I might get it refinished sympathetically as the screw holes look like they were refinished by a toddler with plasticine.
