From Fodera:

This Emperor 5 elite is an excellent example of marrying both form and function — beautiful aesthetics with tone to match. The presentation grade Buckeye Burl top has so much depth to its figure that when looking at the instrument in person, you can almost get lost in it. The electronics package combines the unmatched flexibility of our Fodera / Duncan Dual Coil Pickups and with our Fodera / Pope Custom Shop Preamp making this bass a veritable Swiss army knife of tone — a players instrument all the way.
