This is the first of a brand new line for us here at Fodera! The Monarch Yin Yang is certainly one of our most recognized instruments -- thanks in large part to it being the instrument of choice for our very dear friend and world renowned bass player, Victor Wooten
. You can watch Victor being interviewed about the bass the day after its release at the 2011 NAMM Show here
Intended to be within easier reach of more bass players than our custom Yin Yangs (which are limited in production to just 6 instruments per year), the Yin Yang Standard is built with a premium Red Alder body, bolt-on 1-piece Hard Rock Maple neck, Flame Maple top with a painted Yin Yang Symbol and Ebony fingerboard with pearloid inlays.
EMG P/J pickups running through our Fodera / Pope 3-band NYC Preamp ensure that the tone you have come to associate with our custom Yin Yangs is there in spades. And, of course, it wouldn't be a Fodera without our legendary feel playability...
