Description & Specs

We carry a variety of Fodera Custom Basses at Chicago Music Exchange. Our entire inventory is not listed, so please message us directly to find out what else we have in stock.

For over 30 years, Fodera has produced exemplary 4-, 5- and 6-string basses carefully designed for optimum comfort, balance, and playability, hand-crafting many of them in their Brooklyn, NY facility. Our bass guru, Marc Najjar, visited Fodera in Brooklyn to personally select the Buckeye Burl top featured on this Emperor 5-string. Other premium features of this custom Emperor include a 3-piece maple hard rock neck, Fodera/Pope custom 3-band preamp with Emp/Imp layout, and the amazing matching purpleheart fingerboard and pickup covers. Good gravy!
