SOLD!! Fodera Imperial Elite 5 "Bona"
£6800
Lisbon, Portugal

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm currently selling my 2008 Fodera Imperial Elite 5 string (Bona).

Here are the specs:

Ash body with Olive wood top
Maple neck with 34" Birdseye maple fretboard
Seymour Duncan P/ups with ebony wood covers and matching finger ramp (was a 500 dollar extra at the time of purchase)
Mike Pope 18v Preamp
Weight is about 4,8 KG.


The bass is in mint condition, rarely got out of the house, feels amazing and sounds clear as daylight.
Can basically get any tone from the most vintage to the most modern sounding bass.
The reason for selling is because I'm living in another country and this bass has been staying in Portugal inside the closet not being used, so thought maybe someone else would actually give it a proper use.
I don't have the original case anymore but the bass will be shipped on a proper road case that offers way more protection than the regular fodera case. (Photo of the case attached)

The price includes shipping within Europe.

oh my goodness, that's the real thing.

 

Would you consider giving it away for free to me?

 

 

edit to add: I promise I'll make good use of it and if I at all manage I'll also have it signed by Richard in person one day.

      Hi all, I'm selling my Alembic MK Signature Deluxe with Coco Bolo top, so here is little about the bass.
      Bass has no scratch, no belt buckle scratch, it's almost as brand new, as you can see from pics.
      Scale: 34"
      String spacing: 19 mm
      Fingerboard: Ebony with abalone
      Top: coco Bolo
      Back: Coco Bolo
      Body: Mahogany with maple and purplehearth as accent woods
      Neck: Maple with Purple Hearth stringers
      Finish: clean gloss with satin finish on the neck
      weight: 5.7 kg (with 5 9v batteries that goes into the bass, 4x for LED)
      Electronics: volume, pan, 2x filters, 2x q switches, 1x LED on/off, 1/4" mono output.
      LEDs are amber and red (check pictures)
      Bass was done in 2015, so it has 2+3 machine heads.
      Bass has original case, papers, everything. New one like this is 17.600 dollars, you can check here on Alembic site my bass is Sig Dlx Coco Bolo.
      This is I think only signature bass in EU that is available with this price. For any questions you can contact me. Here are some pic that justify the whole thing, other pics you can see on my dropbox:

      Price says 6000 5600 pounds but it's actually 6500 6200 euros, just conversion is different every day.

      Hi all,
      Back up for cash sale, only trade options would be an Elrick standard Jazz 5 (not sunburst).
      I love this Evolution, sounds awesome, light swamp ash body and looks great. It's a solid 9/10 for condition I'd say. A couple of small indentations, but nothing I'm able to photograph well. Stock, these basses come with Bartolini single-coils, however I've swapped those out for Bartolini dual coils that came direct from Rob Elrick.
      So spec is:
      35″ scale
      Swamp Ash Body
      8.5 Lbs (approx)
      Satin Matte Black Finish
      3-piece Quarter-Sawn Maple Neck
      Ebony Fretboard
      24 frets
      2-way adjustable truss rod
      Bartolini hum cancelling Dual-coil soapbar pickups (Made in the USA)
      Bartolini 3-band pre-amp w/3-way mid and active bypass (Made in the USA)
      Fully shielded control cavity
      Black Hipshot Ultra-light tuners
      Black Elrick bridge – by Hipshot (Made in the USA)
      Dunlop Dual Design strap buttons (Straplok compatible!) (Made in the USA)
       
      £1550 - I'll include a Fusion Urban gig bag in excellent condition!
      £1500 - No Case
      Shipping would be difficult just at the moment, but we can talk about it as an extra cost, but happy to organise a socially distanced handover as a preference.
      UK only for now.






      Cheers
      Si

      Selling my 90s Fodera Imperial 6 - which has the nicest body and neck shape - and the deepest and most crisp sound of any Fodera I owned (and I had some ...).
      Mahogany body (up to 2000 or so Vinnie used frequently Honduran Mahogany, a wood that is used in Acoustic Guitars and is well known for its extraordinarily tonal capabilities.
      Bubinga Top
      36" Neck with a Rosewood Board (looks like Kingwood or Amazon, close to Brazilian) and 28 frets
      Locking Bridge
      Hazlab Preamp
      Bartolini Pickups
      19mm at Bridge
      5 kg
      Fodera Teardrop Case
      The neck is asymmetrically shaped (like the older Tobias basses) which feels great ! The body is nicely shaped (like all of the 90s Imperials) and thinner than usual.
      The action is VERY low and allows neckbreaking fast licks (if they are in the fingers). Frets are top, everything works fine.
      SOLD
