Overview

Hand-built in Brooklyn since 1983.

Since 1983, Fodera has been hand-building custom guitars and basses in Brooklyn, New York. Combining precision craftsmanship, innovative technology, and a deep passion for music and the art of luthiery, Fodera has created a family of instruments that sing with a sweet, pure voice. The Imperial is their take on iconic single-cutaway, two-pickup design, but with additions and improvements, like the tone-thickening, steel bridge-pickup mounting plate, that take it far beyond it's 1950's roots while delivering the bright, punchy tones you expect from an instrument inspired by that lineage.

Private Reserve Guitars by Musician's Friend are your gateway to some of the world's most exclusive, hand-built, custom and semi-custom instruments. This carefully curated collection of spectacular guitars and basses contains many extremely limited-edition and unique one-off instruments that you won't find anywhere else. The world's major custom shops are represented here, as well as many top-flight small builders and individual luthiers. Our PRG associates are specially trained to provide you with detailed information about any guitar in the collection, so you can be sure you're choosing the special instrument that's perfect for you. Call now, and have the instrument of your dreams in your hands as soon as tomorrow.
