Victor Wooten purchased his first Monarch bass, serial #037, in 1983.  He still uses it regularly in concert and on recordings and considers it to be his #1 instrument.  Thanks to Victor’s incredible talent and popularity, his Monarch bass has been seen by a great number of people throughout the years.  As a result of receiving so many requests for a replica of his personal bass, we decided to offer the Victor Wooten ’83 Monarch Classic model as seen here.  The Classic is essentially a Monarch Deluxe featuring the details of Victor’s personal bass.

The Victor Wooten ’83 Monarch Classic features our dovetail “heel-less” neck to body construction, 3-piece highly select and aged hard maple neck, old-growth East Indian Rosewood fingerboard, 34″ scale, 24 frets, mother of pearl dot and tulip inlays, EMG P/J pickups and our proprietary Fodera / Pope internal preamp.
