Fodera Emperor 6 Elite w/Buckeye Burl top
Fodera Emperor 6 Elite with positively stunning buckeye burl top
Built in September, 2020
This is the most beautiful looking Fodera I have seen to date.
I would call the color silver-gray or 'vintage pewter', I have never seen natural wood this color before, it is breathtakingly gorgeous -- both the color and the wood itself.
It's practically new, and plays and sounds as good as it looks.

Excellent -- Would be MINT if not for the following two minor exceptions, as shown in the last two photos:
1. Small ding on side of fingerboard between frets 7 & 8 which has been repaired, and is now completely smooth to the touch and virtually invisible.
2. Small ding on bottom edge near cavity cover which has been repaired, and is now smooth to the touch but visible if you are looking for it.
