I’m selling my Fodera Imperial Elite 5 Str after falling in love with my new Lakland 5 string.

Beautiful Fodera Imperial Elite 5 Str – This is the top of the range Fodera with a through neck, a 35″ scale, 24 frets, beautiful Chestnut Burled Top and Mahogony body. The Neck is a 7 piece and the fingerboard is Ebony. 

It has the Seymour Duncan Aero Pickups and the Mike Pope 3 band Active Preamp.

Serial Number 151722N

I played this bass on the Thriller Live tour in arenas several times and always got great compliments from the sound desk on its tone.

It does have a few cosmetic bumps and scrapes, mainly on the back, due to one particularly bad flight (mainly just dings and lacquer damage), but overall it is a beautiful bass and one of the best playing/sounding basses you’re ever likely find. 


Blurred Lines – Rock Remix

Here’s our Rock Remix arrangement of ‘Blurred Lines’ by Robin Thicke from which was one of the big tracks of the year.

This time we just turned up at the studio, picked the song, Dave said ‘let’s do this Drum and Bass’, the helpful chap richard at Orpheus plugged in a tempo stretch and then the 4 of us got busy!

The band


Ryan Haberfield – Gtr
Rob Eckland – Keys
Dave Elliot – Drums
Johnny Copland – Bass


Enjoy and stay tuned for next month’s bit of band fun!
