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. Designed from the ground up for optimized sonic performance and playability, Fodera instruments use only premium tonewoods, which just happen to be drop-dead gorgeous. The Monarch Standard rocks a medium-weight ash body topped with stunning bicolor 5A flame maple. The hard rock maple neck is capped with an old-growth pau ferro fingerboard. The electronics package includes two of Fodera's Dual-coil pickups and a Fodera/Pope Standard 3-band preamp. Sweetwater bass players savor the Monarch Standard's tight low end, liquid 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 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 offers no options, allowing it to be built in small runs instead of one-offs, thus holding down the cost.
