This new version of the Emperor Standard offers a new look and tonal pallet while holding true to the aesthetic, playability, and reliability that players have come to expect from us. Available in 4, 5, and 6 string configurations.
This new iteration features a Walnut body and Ash top, paired with a 3-piece Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard. This tonewood combination delivers an absolutely massive sound with a warm, booming low end, full yet pronounced midrange and a defined but not overpowering top-end to make for a well-balanced sonic palette.
As previous versions have, it still features our 24-fret PLEK’d compound-radius fingerboard and fully adjustable, custom designed, bell-brass bridge, providing both the exceptional playability Fodera has become known for as well as powerful sustain and resonance.
The new Emperor Standard specs include a set of our Dual Coil pickups, which are designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan. They provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange, and a warmer and more organic sounding tone compared to an active soapbar-style pickup. We wire them in parallel to achieve a noise-free, single-coil sound with added fullness, and provide the added flexibility of full single-coil mode for the classic tone of single-coil jazz bass pickups.
The Fodera/Pope Standard 3-Band Preamp (v.3) is the latest version of our Standard Series preamp. Designed for optimal performance, it offers an incredibly low noise floor, a musical sounding EQ, and active/passive operation for maximum fidelity and flexibility whether put to use on stage or in the studio.
Together, this pickup and preamp combination lets you tailor your tone, from deep and round to bright and punchy and everything in between.
