Established in 1983, Fodera Guitars has grown to be one of the world’s leading makers of handcrafted custom bass guitars. What most people do not know is that our premier instrument was, in fact, a Monarch electric guitar. While our basses have been the hallmark of our company, our co-founder Vinny Fodera is in fact an electric guitar player. Headquarted in Brooklyn, NY, Fodera’s team of luthiers combine over 30 years of innovative design, building, and real-world playing experience to handcraft custom electric guitars suited for your individual playing style and working needs. Using the same shop, the same high-quality materials, and crafted by the same men and women as our custom bass line, our Fodera Electric Guitars are built to offer you a lifetime of playing enjoyment.
