Every once in a while, a spec will change at the last-minute on a Custom order. Sometimes when this happens, we find ourselves with a partially-carved, perfectly wonderful bass body with no home. That is exactly why we currently have two wonderful 5-string Emperor Bolt-On 3-piece bodies available for any direct customer interested in a loaded-up custom Emperor 5 at a very special price of $7,550 (the base price for an Emperor 5 Bolt-On with no upgrades). The first is a Figured Walnut topped Mahogany / Ash body and the second, a Buckeye Burl topped Ash / Walnut body. 

At this price, these bodies include: Seymour Duncan dual coil or single coil pickups, 3-piece Maple neck, your choice of Pau Ferro, Ebony, or Indian Rosewood fingerboards, and Mother of Pearl or Abalone dot inlays.

With these options, both of these instruments would normally retail for $9,750, so this is a great opportunity for anyone who has been dreaming of a custom Fodera.

More Info:

– Both instrument must be used for 5-string bolt-on, 34” scale length, and 19mm string spacing.

– This offer cannot be combined with any other sales or discounts

– Upgrades such as premium fingerboard material, block inlays, and wooden pickup covers are also available for additional up-charge.
