35th Anniversary Monarch 4 Deluxe

This limited run 35th Anniversary Monarch 4 Deluxe combines classic Fodera tone and looks with modern electronics and playability. For this bass we’ve chosen an early Fodera wood combination of a Mahogany body, Quilted Maple top, and Pau Ferro fingerboard. In the early days of Fodera, Vinny chose this combination for its ability to capture warm lows and have the articulation needed to provide a broad range of tone for bass players stepping out into more and more solo work at the time. To replicate 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, we’ve matched that with our latest preamp and proprietary Fodera / Duncan Dual Coil pickups, and utilized our dovetail neck joint found on early Fodera instruments like Victor Wooten’s 87 Monarch.
