    I got my Emperor Standard Classic 5 string in June. I got it because I needed a spare 5 string, my other is a Fodera Custom Neck-Thru. I have to say that this bass compromises nowhere. Though different than the Neck-Thru, it's still great. My favorite of the two is the one I have in my hand at the time. Having used and tried many basses in the past, Fender, Guild, Gibson, PRS, Pedula, and Yamaha among others, I can't find anything that compares to a Fodera. I've been a Fodera owner for a long time, once I moved to Fodera I never looked back.
