Fodera Imperial Custom w/Redwood Burl Top and Walnut Body/Neck

 The Imperial Guitar, our single cut offering, combines the classic thick rich tone of guitars from the 50’s updated with modern aesthetic, playability, and construction techniques. 

Using only premium hand-selected tone-woods, these guitars provide a rich and resonant tone that is somewhat traditional but with added clarity thanks to the untraditional 3-piece neck and Dovetail neck joint. The Imperial Guitar 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.
