2018 NAMM Basses, Masterbuilt - "Art Deco" Imperial Guitar, and 35th Anniversary Monarch 4 Deluxe

Each year, we design and build a number of Custom instruments specifically to showcase at the NAMM Show, one of the largest music trade shows on the planet. Since these custom instruments are not built for specific customers, the entire team is given a chance to be involved in the design process. The team split into several groups, and each group is charged with working with the partners to design one of our 2018 NAMM Custom Instruments. We have a great time designing these truly unique and outstanding instruments, showcasing the passion of the individuals who make up our small company!  We're also very excited to introduce our first Masterbuilt for 2018, the Imperial "Art Deco" guitar! Our first guitar in our Masterbuilt series is inspired by the Art-deco stylings of the 1950’s featuring original-design brass inlays through out and features custom made pickups by Lindy Fralin. 

These instruments will be available for purchase on a first come first serve basis by contacting Also, if you are attending NAMM this year, stop by our booth (#4627) and say hi! We’ll have all of our NAMM instruments on display and members from the Fodera team including Laura, Phil, Jordan, and Wil will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
