Fodera Imperial Elite Essence 2009. I bought this bass directly from Fodera. It was sold under their certified preowned program and has the 2010 Mike Pope preamp. This is one of a few basses made by Fodera known as an "Essence" model. Mainly, it has no top wood. Also no extras such as wood pickup covers or fingerboard inlays. Swamp ash body with maple tone block, Indian rosewood fingerboard, three piece Northern ash neck. Duncan pickups.

Here are the details and more photos from the Fodera website. I changed  the hardware to chrome.
