I consider to sell one of my most epic basses: A true "golden age" Fodera in perfect condition.
Fodera Imperial 6 Elite
- Walnut body
- Quilted Maple Presentation grade top (solid)
- wooden pickup covers (I guess Duncan Dual coils, but not 100% sure)
- 5 piece neck
- golden hardware
- 3-band-pope preamp
- 19mm Fodera Standard Spacing (adjustable from 18-20 mm, quite narrow setup at the moment, close to 18)
- "as new condition". Please see pictures for little marks (half a fingernail at the bottom side), thats all I found after careful inspection
- date of birth: 1/2006
- Serial #I625XXN
- OHSC + Tools
- 5.5 kg (bathroom scale) - the butterflies are never light, but deliver massive sound…
Ridiculous low setup with massive low end, huuuuuge B-String and lots of clearity and authority in the upper register for chordal playing and soloing. Plays like a dream, very versatile.
The bass got new frets (stainless) and plek-treatment at the official and authorized Fodera service point Thomann (all original material and settings) a few years ago.
No trades please, looking for a straight sale.
6800 GBP / 7850 Euro (+ shipping)
The Bass is located near Bonn / Germany.
Not sure about any additional cost when shipping to UK. This would be on the buyer's end as well.
I'm going to regret this, but I need to thin the herd, and create some space. I'm going to put a couple more basses up for sale shortly, if they sell, I may withdraw this one.
This is one of the early runs of the model, and having played a recent one, I can confirm the early ones are the best. All original, apart from an added grounding strip (easily removed).
This bass sounds and plays superb. At just under 4kg it's light for a jazz. NO TRADES - I'm thinning the herd (unless you have a 5 string Wingbass, or Fingy, or similar).
I'd much prefer collection or meet-up. We can't do that just yet (unless you're also in Wales) - so I'm just putting this up to see who's interested... Hopefully we can arrange the sale for a couple of weeks time.
I'd prefer not to post, unless buyer arranges their own courier.
Here you will find a complete sound test of the Fender Precision American Performer for those who want to hear all the nuances of the passive American Precision PJ .. I hope it will be useful especially to those who were considering the purchase of this bass! 😉
For sale Sire V5 5 string. Bought new last autumn, little use still has film on pickups and scratchplate.
Passive, sunburst finish. Roasted maple neck, rolled edges.
Weighs 4.4 Kg according to my suitcase scale (A little more than andertons declared it weighed when I bought it)
Should be able to source a reasonably priced used hiscox case if courier delivery required
Better photos ASAP
