Since 1983, the heart and soul of Fodera Guitars has been our Custom bass guitars. Headquarted in Brooklyn, Fodera’s team of luthiers combine over 30 years of innovative design, building, and real-world playing experience to handcraft your custom bass guitar to suit your individual playing style and working needs. From exotic wood combinations to custom color finishes and pick-guards, and custom neck profiles to fret / scale combinations, the possibilities are endless for your custom bass.
The Fodera Standard Series features the very best of our 30+ years of building experience in an instrument that blends the tone, playability, and pro-player reliability which bass players have come to expect from Fodera. Crafted in small batches by our skilled team of luthiers in our Brooklyn shop, every Standard is built with the same painstaking attention to detail as our custom bass guitars utilizing the same tone-woods, proprietary electronics, and hardware components.
For over 30 years, pro bass guitar players from around the world have made their musical career with a Fodera bass, including Victor Wooten, Anthony Jackson, Otiel Burbridge, James Genus, Matt Garrison, and many more. Our Signature bass guitars are designed in collaboration with our artists to fit their specific tonal and functional needs. They are all truly as unique as the musicians who play them night after night.
