Emperor Deluxe was built for a customer who is a working bass player
living right here in Brooklyn.
As a professional who works in
various projects with different musicians, he needed an instrument
that could cover a lot of tonal ground. A Brazilian Rosewood
fingerboard (CITIES Certified) gives this bass excellent versatility
and a rich, articulate tone, while it's Walnut body ensures a deep
and percussive low end.
With Fodera/Duncan dual coil
pickups and a Fodera/Pope Custom preamp, there is plenty of room to
mold the tone of this instrument. With all of the different types of
gigs out there, this kind of flexibility is a great boon to any
musician on the New York scene.
