Fodera Guitar Partners, LLC, world-class custom guitar makers, is proud to announce the 35th Anniversary Monarch Deluxe: A celebration of over 35 years of hand-crafting some of the finest instruments electric basses and guitars and honoring past and present Fodera designs.
This limited-run 35th anniversary Monarch Deluxe combines classic Fodera tone and looks paired with modern electronics and playability. For this bass we’ve adopted an early Fodera wood combination of a Mahogany body, Quilted Maple top, and a Pau Ferro fingerboard. In the early days of Fodera guitars, Vinny chose this combination for its broad range of tone; able to capture warms lows and have the articulation needed for bass players stepping out into more solo work at the time. To mimic the look of our original oil-finished instruments we’ve stained the instrument to match the golden hues of a well played oil-finished instrument while still utilizing our satin acrylic finish known for its breathability and durability. Finally, we’ve matched that with our latest preamp and proprietary Fodera / Seymour Duncan Dual Coil pickups and utilized our Dovetail neck joint found on original Fodera instruments like Victor Wooten’s '87 Monarch.
Only (35) 35th Anniversary Monarch Deluxe basses will be built and are available exclusively through our dealer network and carries a retail price of $7,550.00.
