Yellowheart / Ebony Yin Yang 4 Deluxe USED
This special YYD 4 Deluxe was built at the same time as Victor's personal Yellowheart / Ebony YYD and was cut from the same billets of wood. Built essentially as a twin to Victor's bass, this YYD features a flamed Yellowheart / Ebony Yin Yang top with a Walnut body paired to a 3pc Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard. Like Victor's bass it comes with a set of EMG-X PJ pickups which feature Alnico V magnets for a more vintage tone compared to stock EMGs. Tonally this bass has deep, tight authoritative lows, slightly compressed but natural sounding mids and gorgeous, natural bell-like highs.
This bass is in used condition but structurally sound and comes with a 1-year warranty on wood work and electronics.

I got my Emperor Standard 5 Classic in June. It's Fiesta Red, with White Pickguard, Ash Body with Maple Neck and Birdseye Maple Fingerboard. Don't let the old school vibe fool you, it's every inch a Fodera. Though it's different than my Custom Neck-thru, I love it just as much. My favorite of the two is whichever one I'm playing at the time. I've played many others over the years, Fender, PRS, Pudula, Yamaha, Guild and Gibson. There's nothing like a Fodera. Pricy, yes and worth every penny. I started playing Fodera basses in 1989 and I've never looked back.
