Fodera Guitars is proud to welcome bassist Tony Russell to the Fodera family! Tony has recorded and toured with many big artists such as R. Kelly, John P. Kee, Dave Hollister, P. Diddy, and is currently the touring bassist for hip-hop giants, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar. We first met Tony when he came to our booth at the 2015 NAMM show, where he played our newly-released Standard Classic demo basses. We were very impressed by both his talent and his great personality and when he asked if we would build him an E5S Classic we were honored to have the opportunity (Click here to check out his bass in our newborn gallery).
