Fodera Walnut Crotch Emperor 5 Deluxe Electric Bass USED


Walnut Crotch Emperor 5 Deluxe

One of the classic tone wood combinations for those that love a rich, deep low end coupled with a beautifully articulate upper register, an Alder body and Ebony fingerboard is something that we’ve been using here at Fodera since the early 1980′s.

With it’s understated Crotch Walnut top, Ebony fingerboard and Black Hardware, visually this bass just exudes class. Once you get a chance to play it, however, it shows a bit of its wild side. Solo that bridge pup in single coil mode and you’ve got some incredible grind and growl. Dial it over to a humbucking neck pickup and roll of the highs and you’ve got big, round P-Bass thing going on…who said that you cannot have it both ways?
