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. 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, NY shop alongside our custom instruments by the very same people, using the same tools. 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. Ash Body, Quartersawn Hard Rock Maple Neck, Pau Ferro Fretboards, 5A Bi-Color Flame Maple Top, Fodera / Pope 3-Band Standard Preamp, and Fodera Dual Coil Pickups.

DISCONTINUED! This is the last of our Emperor 5 Standard Fretless models. Fodera is no longer making these, and once it sells, the only thing like this would be the Custom version currently starting at $7550! Emperor 5 Standard Fretless was designed from the ground up to combine stunning fretless tone with the legendary playability and pro-player reliability that you expect from Fodera.

The E5SF features a Walnut-Ash-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. Round it out with our proprietary Fodera Dual Coil Pickups and Fodera / Pope Standard 3-Band Preamp and you have yourself an incredible instrument just dying to be played.

BASS CLUB CHICAGO EXCLUSIVE! We wanted to do something special for the 10 Year Anniversary of Bass Club Chicago, so we commissioned this very special Monarch Standard, which is not available anywhere else. We took the most popular features requested in the Monarch to create the Fodera Monarch 4 Standard Buckeye BCC 10 year Anniversary bass. This is one of 6, and the least expensive Buckeye Burl Fodera money can buy.

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. 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.

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 Buckeye Burl 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.

The Emperor 6 Standard (E6S) is the very first six-sting addition to the family of Fodera standards. It draws upon the same specifications used on the Emperor 5 Standard -- a super premium two-tone Flame Maple top on an Ash body with a one-piece quartersawn, Hard Rock Maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard. Something unique about this particular Instrument is that its inception was due in large part to you, our customers, and your continued calls for a six string standard. This bass is equipped Fodera Dual Coil Pickups and out Fodera / Pope Standard 3-band Preamp. Scale length is 34 inches and string spacing is 17.5mm at the bridge. We take great pride in the fact that we have the kind of relationship with our customers that allows us to respond to their needs directly when the opportunity presents itself, and we sincerely hope we have done so in the instance.
Overall, our goals for the E6S were identical to what we strove to achieve with the E5S – tonal flexibility, outstanding playability and the pro-player reliability that has been one of the hallmarks of Fodera for over thirty years.

DISCONTINUED! This is the last of our Tom Kennedy Standards. Fodera is no longer making this model, and once it sells, the only thing like this would be the Custom Tom Kenndey model currently selling at $10,650! 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.
