1. I wish you readers could play it!

    It’s been a great honor to be one of the first people here in the NYC area to get a Fodera Guitar endorsement. I’ve known the folks at Fodera for years having played in many bands with legendary bassist and Fodera cofounder Joey Lauricella. For those of you who haven’t met Vinny Fodera he’s the most beautiful man you’d ever want to meet and the most amazing master luthier in the NYC and …Read More

  5. My new Imperial Mini-MG

    The new mini performed beyond anything I could have imagined. Tone, feel, power, ease of use, portability. I have to just get used to the tighter spacing and neck length. Was reaching for notes where I expected them and was off (occasionally) by a whole step. Funny though, in this project that tends to fly. Creates an unexpected key change which we all rather enjoy! What I really enjoyed was that …Read More

  6. I can’t imagine playing anything else

    All I can say is it's been a great year putting this [bass] together. The time you took to continually find selections of wood is greatly appreciated. But what is a look if it doesn't play well, that would be akin to having a Ferrari with a Yugo engine in it. I can report that it sounds better than it looks (and that is saying loads). It, literally, plays itself smooth, fast, and bright without be…Read More

  7. I am truly overwhelmed by the genuine care

    I am truly overwhelmed by the genuine care and absolute dedication of everyone at Fodera - one probably finds people like you guys maybe once in a lifetime (if one is lucky enough!) - I was very worried about my bass choice from the start, since I am a highly anxious person and a perfectionist as well. After this morning's meeting I am so glad I chose Fodera. I believe I understand now what makes …Read More

  8. I cannot tell you how pleased I am

      I cannot tell you how pleased I am with my Emperor 5 Special Edition that I just received. I have not been able to put it down. I am finding myself playing the bass every chance I get since it arrived. My wife thinks I should have married it since she has not seen much of me lately. I will tell you I have been playing bass over 30 years and never in my life have I owned such an instrument in te…Read More

  9. I couldn’t be happier

    I say it really doesn't matter what genre of music you are playing, you WILL get a great tone and feel from any bass that has the Fodera name on it. I couldn't be happier with my basses and I can't wait for the next one!…Read More

  10. Perfection

    When I visited, their front desk had an Emperor Standard jigsaw puzzle (thanks to the bandsaw) because the wood had a small knot or something in it. I thought Jason only joked about cutting a bass to pieces if it wasn't up to their standards. They not only strive to achieve perfection in their craftsmanship, they remind themselves everyday that anything less than the best is unacceptable.…Read More
