*Pending payment* Fodera Monarch Deluxe Custom VW5 2004
£6500
Hilversum, The Netherlands

Recommended Posts

Selling this one is a tough decision really, in fact I would never have expected selling it, but times are changing for me and I am thinning the herd which leads to selling great basses that happen to be in the same sonic area as others I have. 

Up for sale is my fat, funky, Fender-ish Fodera VW Deluxe Custom 5 built in 2004.

35” (easy to play: no additional stretching compared to most 34” basses)

Madascar Kingwood board

Dove-tail maple neck

Tiger maple front

Mahogany body (I think) 

4,5 kgs

Seymour Duncan dual coils

Dual action truss rod

Etc.

Some playing wear but overall in very good condition and technically 100%. Very solid bass, (low) action, string spacing (+/- 19mm) and neck curve anyway you like it.

Comes with original hard shell case

Yes EMG size but original. I am the 2nd owner and I know the first owner who custom-ordered it like this.

So, if you want EMG's changing pickups is quite easy.
