(this explains the bass was designed in California, built in Japan, and finished in California!)
"The production of each high quality Xotic bass guitars begins in our Los Angeles, CA shop where the wood, shape, color, hardware, pickups and all other features are precisely designed for each instrument. Every model goes through an extensive process of R&D to determine which wood, construction and electronics will best serve its envisioned use.
These exact specifications are then sent to T’s Guitars in Japan. T’s Guitars has an enduring reputation of producing exceptional hand quality instruments in Japan and Xotic has a long and ongoing relationship with them.
Great attention is paid to picking the finest woods for our bodies and necks and each piece is hand selected.
Seasoned builders blend old world craftsmanship with modern CNC technology in building each instrument with each step in the process supervised up to Xotic’s meticulous specs.
Guitars are then shipped to our California shop where our Master Luthier will inspect each instrument. Fretwork is finalized with a fret dress that addresses every facet of the fret surface. Additional setup includes string height, truss rod adjustments and fine-tuning of pickups and electronics. Particular attention is giving to the instruments playability, tone, fit and finish."
Also see the spec sheet in the photos.
Excellent condition, I can't find any body marks that would show up on a photo. A few minor scuffs and dings on the headstock.
I bought it a few months ago in Camden, it appears it has been previously sold on Basschat: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/328027-sold-xotic-xj-1t-5-sold/
Moving on because I've just bought a Ken Smith and this is far too good for a backup!
A generic, shabby but operational black hard case
Manual, stickers etc. per photo

Fodera Emperor Elite II from NAMM Show 2003. Probably the first Fodera with a Holly top, which is now faded into a wonderful Butterscotch Blonde.
Ash Body with solid Holly Top
5pc Maple Neck
Birdseye maple Board with Abalone Blocks
Aero Dual Coil Pickups in Holly covers
35“, 19mm string spacing adjustable
Weight 4,94 kg
Some dings here and there from regular playing. Everything works perfect. A typical deep and strong sound with a nice snap in it. Recently plek'd by Fodera and has a nice low action.
Asking 7.500 EUR plus shipping from Duesseldorf / Germany.
For sale is my Sandberg California VM5 Supreme which I have owned from new and which comes with a Gator hard case.
The Supreme versions of the VM5 have the additional features over the base models:
- - Matched headstock
- - Pearl block inlays
- - High gloss finish
I also ordered mine with a 3-band preamp instead of the usual 2-band.
Very good, there are a couple of tiny marks on the headstock and one near the input jack.
The bass was my main gigging bass for a few years until my Shuker took its place, since then it’s mainly just been used as a backup, sitting on a stand.
Cash, PayPal or bank transfer please. I live in Sutton-in-Ashfield, north Nottinghamshire, UK and would be willing to meet part-way if collection in person is preferred (also my preferred method). Alternatively I can ship this.
