This is a really impressive bass handmade by Fodera guitars. It is a Monarch Elite model, meaning it has neck thru construction.

It sports a wide neck (19mm spacing) which makes it ideal for grooves and standard basslines as well as slapping. Chordwork is also comfortable.

A remarkable feature of this instrument is the perfect balance between all 6 strings. Notes are pure and full bodied just anywhere on the neck. The low B is loud and clear and the High C sounds deeper and warmer than in most 6 string basses.

In passive mode just by using the pickup balance, Coil tap feature and Passive Tone you get a lot of first class sounds. Of course the excellent 3 band Mike Pope preamp adds a lot of variation in the sound so there's lots to choose from here.

In Single Coil mode the sound is warm and clear. You can use this mode for just any style of music. In humbucker mode you get a slightly more modern sound that is also cool and proves to be great for soloing.

To sum up:  a great bass in every sense.

Note: this is a semi new bass that could actually pass like new. It has never been gigged so the contion is absolutey excellent. Only the case shows some minor wear. You save a chunck of money and almost 1 year wait time, so this is a great chance.
