Since 1983, the heart and soul of Fodera Guitars has been custom basses. Our team of luthiers combine over 30 years of innovative design, building, and real world playing experience to handcraft a custom bass guitar suited for your individual playing style and working needs. With customizable options for exotic wood combinations and custom color finishes, to custom neck profiles and fret/scale combinations, the possibilities for your custom instrument are nearly endless.
We understand that ordering a custom bass can often be an intimidating process. At Fodera, we work one-on-one with you during the process to help determine the perfect specs for your needs. Wondering what the tonal differences are between Alder and Walnut? Looking for a specific figured top wood with a certain scale length? No problem! Our team will personally work with you to make sure every spec is just right!
