Fodera Emperor Classic Vintage Sunburst

New Fodera Emperor Classic. Fodera are better known for their custom bass guitars, but now add to their 6-string product line. Based on the Emperor J Standard Classic bass model the new Fodera Emperor Classic 6-string has all of the old-world craftsmanship, tone, playability and pro-player reliability that the company has long been known for…

The Fodera Emperor Classic is a double-cutaway slightly offset body shape the same as its ‘parent’ Emperor bass guitar. Available with a premium, hand-selected Alder body and Indian Rosewood fingerboard, 3-piece Hard Rock Maple neck with bolt-on construction, 25.5″ scale length and angled back headstock. The pickups are a set of three custom-made Seymour Duncan single-coil pickups. The Emperor has a unique pickup configuration for a wider variety of tonal options compared to traditional single-coil-style instruments. In addition to the traditional five-way pickup selector, a mini-toggle switch has been provided to allow the bridge pickup to be engaged with any pickup selector position. The bridge pickup is also set in a Telecaster-style metal tray.

The Emperor Guitar will be available in six classic, high-gloss finishes including Fiesta Red, Candy Apple Red, Vintage Sunburst, Black, Olympic White, Charcoal Frost Metallic, Butterscotch Blonde and Pelham Blue as well as a choice of Black, White, or Tortoise Shell pickguards with classic chrome hardware.
