Designed in collaboration with good friend and loyal customer Denson Angulo, this instrument  commemorates elements of his personal life through its intricate design. Comprised of Holly, Ebony & Lapis Lazuli, the inlay on the body depicts a Tiger and Dragon representing he and his partner's Zodiac signs, along with a Bass Clef inlay all bordered in a heart. The inlay on the fingerboard is a Lotus made of Mother of Pearl, which also frames the entire fingerboard. 

For tonewoods, this Masterbuilt features a Solid Redwood Burl top, an Ash body, Ash toneblock, a Holly back cap and a 9-pc Maple neck with Walnut stringers. This instrument is surprisingly light considering its scale and range, for which the Viceroy body shape accommodates very well. The configuration yields a warm and punchy low end, a slightly compressed yet growling midrange, and clear, bell-like highs. It comes with a set of our Fodera / Seymour Duncan Dual Coil Pickups and our Fodera / Pope Custom preamp.
