OVERVIEW

Pro-player designed and Brooklyn built.

The Fodera Monarch 4 Standard Electric Bass model features blends the aesthetics, tone, playability and pro-player reliability bass players have come to expect from Fodera. By building just one configuration, with no options, they are able to offer the same legendary Fodera quality of their custom instruments at a very competitive price point.

Despite its lack of options, the Monarch Standard was designed using a combination of tone-woods that works beautifully on virtually any gig and playing situation. Hand-selected, medium-weight ash bodies with 5A flame maple tops matched with the incredibly stable, 3-pc quarter-sawn hard rock maple necks with Pau Ferro fingerboards, delivers deep, tight lows, transparent mids and just enough top-end to make for an incredibly balanced sonic palette. It also offers a 24-fret PLEK’d compound-radius fingerboard providing the effortless playability Fodera has become known for as well as the powerful sustain and resonance from the fully adjustable, custom designed, bell-brass bridge.

The Monarch Standard features a set of Fodera/Duncan dual-coil pickups and the Fodera/Pope Standard Preamp with 3-band EQ. Designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan, these passive Dual Coil pickups were designed to provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Wired in parallel, these pickups offer a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight yet come with the added flexibility of full single-coil operation providing the snap, warmth, and mid-range punch of classic single-coil Jazz Bass pickups.

Designed for optimal performance, the 3-band Fodera/Pope preamp offers an incredibly low noise flow, a very musical sounding EQ, and active/passive operation for the utmost reliability and flexibility whether you’re on stage or in the studio. Together, these electronics let you tailor your tone, from deep and round to bright and punchy and everything in between.

Every Monarch Standard bass guitar is hand-crafted right here in their Brooklyn, New York shop alongside the custom instruments by the very same people, using the same tools and materials as Custom basses.
