Fodera Imperial Elite Bass

I bought this bass in 2013. We share the same birthday April 24. The odds against this are 365 – 1! Here is the info from the Fodera site.

What makes this Fodera bass particularly unique is that it is one of just several “Essence” basses that we built using no top woods. Sporting a Swamp Ash body and Northern Ash neck, with a Maple tone block, and Indian Rosewood fingerboard, this understated beauty has to be heard to be believed. Simple, stunning, and sonically powerful, all qualities that truly are the essence of Fodera.
This wonderful Imperial 5 Elite features an Ash body, Maple tone block, and an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. Tonally, this instrument has a powerful, punchy tone with a super warm and deep low end and great clarity! Another key feature of this bass is the Ash neck, which adds a bit of extra warmth and “snap” to the tonal palate. It also happens to look fantastic!
