Fodera Unveils 35th Anniversary Monarch 4 Deluxe Bass

Fodera is gearing up for 2018 by announcing the 35th Anniversary Monarch 4 Deluxe. Celebrating the company’s flagship design, the new bass is described as combining classic Fodera tone and looks 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, the company fits the bass with their Fodera/Seymour Duncan dual coil pickups matched to the Fodera/Pope custom 3-band preamp. The Fodera 35th Anniversary Monarch 4 Deluxe will be available soon exclusively through their dealer network.
