Fodera Guitars:
World-Class Custom Guitar Makers Since 1983


aboutus.jpgFodera Guitars was established in 1983 by Vinny Fodera, a skilled custom guitar builder (luthier) with an eye for creating beautiful instruments, and Joey Lauricella, a professional bass player with practical working experience.
 
With his hands-on knowledge of how bass guitars felt and sounded, Joey’s pro-player perspective was the perfect complement to Vinny’s aesthetic talent.  Together, they set out on a mission to build distinctive, handmade basses that played effortlessly and allowed artists to achieve tonal nuances unavailable from any other instrument on the market.

Simply put, they wanted to build a bass that would look and sound phenomenal; a bass that you just can’t put down.

Ever since opening the doors of its first small shop in Brooklyn, NY, Fodera Guitars has established itself as one of the most highly sought custom guitars in the world.  Today, musicians travel from around the globe for Fodera custom instruments and solid body electric guitars.

Fodera Guitars is also proud to offer one of the largest selections of premium tone wood in the world.
 

Exceptional Musicians: Each Fodera custom made bass is as unique as the musician who plays it.  Since every instrument is built to order for a specific musician, each has its own unique voice and character.  No two are alike, yet all inspire, and are a joy to play.
