Fodera Emperor Elite AJ6 Bass 6 string

Recommended Posts

Hi Basschat members.

Superb Fodera AJ 6 - Fat sounding beast : Fodera Emperor Elite AJ6 - Bass - 6 Sting. 1995(!). Or also known as

Anthony Jackson Contrabass Guitar.

19mm stringspacing, long scale, and incredible handling. A sweet 90ties era Fodera bass. 

But new stuff coming in. Designed by the master. Small signs of wear. Around the jack output some small finish crack. But nothing serious.

So I let it go at a cool price inc standard sending cost within Europe. Including orig. Fodera Case, well packed. Fodera vibes and Fodera playability.

Don't miss the opportunity to get a bass designed by the Master and built by Masters. More pics on request. 

Pickup - panorama pot

High Low pots

Volume pot

Active / Passive (!) switch

on/off switch (very useful!)

Has a fresh set of strings on it.

Anthony Fodera Contrabass - now or never..

Cheers, Z.

Is this the one which has the moved (modded) Input jack from the side to the front top of the bass? - Nope. No side input jack history. Sounds awfully good though.

      Fodera Imperial 5 from 2004 in like new condition. The shown pictures are from March 21 and not optimized in any way.

      Super rare Brazilian Tulipwood Full Top and Board (this has been a 3000 USD upgrade and is currently not offered anymore by Fodera. Brazilian Tulipwood is a Dalbergia species and should not be mistaken for North American Tulipwood which is a common light wood used for bodies. 35" scale, 22 frets and 19mm spacing at bridge. 5pc Maple Neck.

      The Tulipwood is attractively contrasted by Purpleheart pickup covers and dots. The body is made of Ash.
      Pickups are Aero Dual Coils, preamp is the famous Pope.
      The bass has been well cared for and condition is like new. Truss rod, electronics, hardware - everything works as expected. OHSC included.
      SOLD !

      Hi there,
      the next bass I want to sell is my "Adamovic Jupiter 6 String". What a wonderful bass 😍
      I know that selling this bass will broke my heart, but whenever I play my 4 strings it is like coming home.
      I don't have use for 6 Strings, especially not for the B-String.
      The specs are:
      Light Mahagony Body flamed amazaque top Guariba/wenge Neck Zollernia fingerboard Set neck 2x Häussel bass bar PUs with passive electronic < 4kg massive low B string! You can see that this bass was used, but there are no big scratches, dings or dongs. The wooden PU covers were replaced by Harry Häussel, because of some cracks probably due to fluctuations in temperature.
      As Häussel told me Adamovic don't use that kind of wood anymore for wooden covers. Now these are wooden covers made of ebony.
      I prefer local pickup, but shipping is possible, too. But I have to emphasize that shipping is at your own risk.
      Please feel free to ask questions. I also have some sound snippets, if you are interested.

      PRICE DROP - £750

      Bought this from new in June last year. It looks and sounds great and has tonnes of versatility. Unfortunately though my hands are just too small for the 35" scale and it's not getting the love it deserves. The finish really is quite impressive in the flesh and it's been incredibly well cared for.

      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.
      *now 2.500 € for a straight sale*
      The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.
      Shipping is possible in a sturdy and very good case. https://www.protectionracket.com/products/item/bass-guitar-case-std
      Here are some soundfiles, recorded at home.
