Kestrel - Masterbuilt
Fodera Guitars is proud to present the second installment to our Masterbuilt line – The Imperial “Kestrel” 5 Elite!
Masterbuilt #2 features some of the very finest materials that we have available to us and includes a chambered Walnut body, flamed alder tone-block, and a 5-pc Red Oak / Wenge / Maple neck capped with a uniquely figured Ebony fingerboard featuring an Abalone Line inlay. This tonal recipe yields deep, rich, articulate lows with a wonderful presence and piano-like clarity in the upper register. That said, the chambering to the Walnut body adds just a bit of acoustic quality to the overall sound. Finally the bass features a single Fodera / Seymour Duncan Dual Coil pickup and our proprietary Fodera / Pope 3-band preamp offering vast tonal flexibility.
