Fodera Hardtail Bridge
Our proprietary bridge is machined out of a special brass allow that provides great warmth and body to the note while also remaining articulate with great sustain. It also allows the player to have their strings top loaded or strung through the body.
Flexible Control Layouts
By providing extra room in the electronics cavity, players have the options of Vol/Tone/Tone with a 3-way switch (or 5-way for 3 pickup configuration) or designing their own control layout that best suits your playing style.
Our Dovetail neck joint gives the Monarch Custom a robust body to neck connection but is hand carved for comfort. By rounding over the edges of the heel, you'll feel a seemless transtion to the upper frets of the guitar.

Hum-cancelling designs have always have always seemed to lack the air and chime of true single coils. Working with Lindy we sought to design a pickup that achived an authetic 50's tone with all the air and chime we love while still being full and balanced. These pickups utilize Steel Screw Pole pieces and are 2% underwound for a clear tone.
Built like traditional double coils, these pickups offer a clear and dynamic sound with rich overtones. To achieve this we based the pickups around Alinco V magnets with heavier gauge wire for a warm and punchy tone with a full and rich midrange.
Our proprietary Big Singles are our take on Lindy's innovative hum-cancelling design, offering a warm character with an open tone. Utilizing bar magnets and heavier gauge wire these pickups with capture all the dynamics and overtones you'd want from a classic single coil tone with none of the noise.
