After receiving numerous inquiries over the past several years about offering a fretless as part of Foderas Standard line-up, they finally decided on a set of specifications that they felt would be up to the task! The Monarch 4 Fretless Standard (M4FS) was designed from the ground up to provide every ounce of playability and sonic performance we are capable of delivering based on our 30 years of handcrafting some of the finest electric bass guitars in the World. The Fretless Standard features a Walnut body, Ebony fingerboard and quartersawn, one-piece Red Oak neck. The result is a warm and smooth, yet beautifully articulate fretless tone. Red Oak, being a strong but fairly porous wood, has many tiny air pockets that act as "resonating chambers," enhancing the "growl" of the instrument. By building just one configuration, with no options, they are able to offer the same legendary Fodera quality of our custom instruments at a very competitive price point. Every M4FS is built right here in our Brooklyn, NY shop alongside the custom instruments by the very same people, using the same tools. This first run of the M4FS will only consist of 15 instruments, all of which will have a figured Walnut top coming from the same piece of Claro Walnut -- different than the piece used on the prototype but equally stunning and tonally delicious! Features: Top Wood: Curly Walnut (Solid) Body Wood: Walnut (Lightweight) Fingerboard Wood: Ebony Neck Wood: 1-pc. Red Oak Neck Joint: Bolt-On Scale Length: 34″ Strings: 4 Frets: 24 FB Inlay: Blank (Side Dots Only) Pickups: Fodera Dual Coils Preamp: Fodera / Pope Standard 3-Band Control Layout: Standard Layout 19mm Spacing

The original Monarch 4 Standard (M4S) was designed from the ground up to provide the same legendary Fodera quality of Fodera's custom instruments at a very competitive price point. Every M4S has been built right here in Fodera's Brooklyn shop alongside our custom instruments by the very same people, using the same tools.

Every so often Fodera has been releasing small, “Special” runs of various Standard models that offer something unique. Perhaps a different combination of tonewoods, different electronics or different tops? Who knows where creativity will lead them? One thing is for certain...they will be limited in number and will sound and play every bit as well as every Fodera should!

For this run of the Monarch Standard Special, Fodera opted to use a tonewood mixture that includes medium weight Walnut bodies, quartersawn Red Oak necks, and Ebony fingerboards—all perfectly complimented by gorgeous Curly Walnut tops.

Rounding out the package is the Fodera / Pope 3-band Standard Preamp and Seymour Dual Coil pickups. This version of the M4SS delivers deep, tight lows, transparent mids and a wonderful rich top-end making for great slap tones and precise, percussive, articulate finger-style runs.

Tom Kennedy Emperor II Standard Single Cut Bolt-On. Designed in close consultation with Fodera Endorsing Artist, Tom Kennedy. The TKS sports a 5A Flame Maple top on a Single-Cut Ash body. The neck is crafted from one piece of quartersawn Hard Rock Maple and the fingerboard is Ebony. The combination of black hardware, hidden pole pieces on the pickups and an Ebony Fingerboard provide a sleek, clean look to this beautiful instrument. Aside from the obvious difference of utilizing Bolt-On construction, another variation from Tom’s original signature bass is the use of more traditional 70’s pickup spacing for some added tonal flexibility. We believe the result of this project is a bass that combines the functionality and affordability of our standard instruments with the highly sought after aesthetics of our Single-Cut custom models.

The Maple Burl top on this Fodera Deluxe is spectacular, and one of the best we've seen. The figuring, tight grain, and quality of the maple means it is from a slow growth tree, which produces figuring and tone you will rarely find in todays wood. Fodera makes some of the finest instruments in the world and we have been a proud dealer for nearly a decade. These basses offer lots of clarity, versatility, and definitely look amazing. You can get everything from vintage to very modern tones, and a playability that is unparalleled by most manufacturers today. Once a customer plays a Fodera, they find it hard to go back to anything else.
