You've Arrived

Since 1983, Fodera has been designing electric bass guitars for top bassists like Anthony Jackson, Victor Wooten, and Oteil Burbridge, and they put all their experience and know-how into their 4th-generation Monarch Standard Classic. Designed from the ground up for optimized sonic performance and playability, Fodera instruments use only the highest-quality tonewoods. This Monarch Standard Classic rocks a premium ash body and a quartersawn hard rock maple neck capped with a maple fingerboard. The electronics package includes two Fodera/Duncan Dual-coil pickups and a Fodera/Pope Standard 3-band preamp. Sweetwater bass players savor the Monarch Standard Classic's tight low end, strong midrange, and perfect amount of high end - fat, punchy, balanced tone that'll grace any track, onstage or in the studio.

Superior playability, sonics, and build quality

The Fodera Monarch Standard Classic gives you the superior playability, sonics, and build quality of the custom models played by the bass gods who endorse the brand, in a more affordable axe. Crafted with the same materials by the same top luthiers, the Monarch Standard Classic offers no options, allowing it to be built in small runs instead of one-offs, thus holding down the cost. Take a step up to boutique quality with Fodera. You've arrived.
