New Fodera Imperial Deluxe. Fodera are best known for their bass guitars which are hand-crafted in New York. They have made 6-string guitars in the past but only for custom orders. Fodera are now producing the Imperial and Emperor as standard models. The Fodera Imperial is a single cut guitar combining the classic thick rich tone of guitars from the 50’s updated with modern aesthetic, playability, and construction techniques…

The Fodera Imperial Deluxe guitar features a customer choice of a one-piece, semi-hollow Mahogany, Walnut, or Korina body, as well as a customer choice of a 3-piece Mahogany, Korina, Maple, or Walnut neck, with an Ebony or Rosewood fingerboard. The neck has an un-traditional 3-piece neck and Dovetail neck joint. The Imperial also incorporates a unique stop-tailpiece where a solid brass bar has been inlayed into a fingerboard-matching wooden shell providing added mass and sustain.

The Imperial Guitar comes with a set of Seymour Duncan Custom Humbuckers providing a full, even, and rich sound with smooth highs, thick lows, and growling midrange. The Imperial Guitar is available in a high-gloss finish body, satin finished neck, and customer choice of chrome, black, or gold hardware.
