We have some exciting new additions to our Standard Classic line for 2016 Q1 Delivery! We are thrilled to be offering our Standard Classics (Monarch and Emperor) in four completely new colors — Butterscotch Blonde, Charcoal Frost Metallic, Pelham Blue and Candy Apple Red. The original four colors will not be offered this go-around.
In addition to Standards we are also proud to announce our new Spalted Maple Emperor II Select! Every so often we like to provide Fodera Customers with the opportunity to purchase a Custom Shop build at a more competitive price. During January through March of 2016 we will be proudly building and delivering ten (10) Emperor II Selects. With their Alder bodies and old-growth / dark Pau Ferro fingerboards, these EII Selects were designed to be on the warmer end of the tonal spectrum with added clarity and articulation coming from the super-dense, old-growth Pau Ferro fingerboards. All woods for the ten builds were hand-selected and will be topped with lovely, non-solid Spalted Maple tops. Rounding out the specs will be a set of versatile Duncan / Fodera Dual Coil Pickups and our 3-band Custom Shop Fodera Preamp. The pickups will be spaced in 70’s position — again giving some added clarity and definition to the tonal mix. If you have been longing for an Emperor II, this is the one!
