One of our 2013 NAMM Basses, this gorgeous Newborn features a two-toned Walnut Burl solid top over an Ash body (with Alder Tone Block) and a 5A Birdseye Maple fingerboard on a stunning 5-piece Maple neck comprised of Birdseye Maple, Flame Maple and South American Rosewood stringers -- all of which has been here in the shop since the early 1990's!
Tonally, this Imperial is on the bright side of the tonal spectrum with fabulous articulation and punch. Of course given its Fodera / Duncan Dual Coils and Fodera / Pope Custom Preamp, the tonal flexibility remains what you would expect from a Fodera.
