A simple and easy way to get the greatest return on your Standard bass guitar...

A Custom Fodera is more than an instrument; it’s more than selecting specifications like tone woods and electronics; and it’s more than a purchase. Regardless of skill level, a Custom Fodera is a journey in expressing your individual and creative vision expressed through wood, electronics, and sound.  It’s working alongside some of the most talented people in the world of luthiery who are committed to listen to your desires so we can bring your vision to life.

Working together, we will select the very finest materials available for your build.  And, most importantly, a Custom Fodera is the beginning of what we hope will be a lifetime of experiences with the unique, hand-crafted instrument that you helped create. 

A Custom Fodera does not start with a form or menu, but rather as a conversation with real people who will listen and work with you to design an instrument that is a completely unique expression of you as a person and player, all in a way that ensures a lifetime of enjoyment.  There is a reason we call our players the “Fodera Family.”  We are committed to building a long-term relationship with you and to spend the necessary time to make the process of bringing your Custom Fodera bass guitar to life both simple and fun.
