Fodera Monarch 4 Standard Flame Maple Bass Guitar ON HOLD.
Our Price: $4,750.00

By building just one configuration, with no options, we are able to offer the same legendary Fodera quality of our custom instruments at a very competitive price point. Every M4S is built right here in our Brooklyn shop alongside our custom instruments by the very same people, using the same tools. The Monarch 4 Standard (M4S) was designed from the ground up to provide every ounce of playability and sonic performance we are capable of delivering based on our 28 years of handcrafting some of the finest electric bass guitars in the World.

For tonewoods we use a mixture of ingredients that we feel works beautifully on virtually any gig: medium weight Ash bodies, quartersawn Hard Rock Maple necks, and old-growth Pau Ferro fingerboards -- all perfectly complimented by stunning 5A Bi-Color Flame Maple tops. Rounding out the package is our Fodera / Pope 3-band Standard Preamp and our own Fodera Dual Coil pickups. The M4S delivers deep, tight lows, transparent mids and just enough top-end to make for an incredibly balanced sonic presentation.

Fodera Monarch 4 Standard Fretless Bass Guitar #5408
Our Price: $4,950.00

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!

Fodera Emperor 5 Standard Special Bass Guitar #4 ON HOLD
Our Price: $5,950.00

The original Emperor 5 Standard (E5S) 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.

By building just one configuration, with no options, we are able to offer the same legendary Fodera quality of our custom instruments at a very competitive price point.  Every E5S has been built right here in our Brooklyn, NY shop alongside our custom instruments by the very same people, using the same tools.

From time to time, however, curiosity and a desire to have fun and do something new gets the better of us and every so often we plan on 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 us?  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 first iteration of the Emperor Standard Special we opted to use a tonewood mixture that includes medium weight Ash bodies, quartersawn Hard Rock Maple necks, and Birdseye Maple fingerboards -- all perfectly complimented by gorgeous Port Orford Cedar tops.

Rounding out the package is our Fodera / Pope 3-band Standard Preamp and our own Fodera Dual Coil pickups.  This version of the E5SS delivers deep, tight lows, transparent mids and a wonderful bright top-end making for great slap tones and precise, percussive, articulate finger-style runs.
