Born in Newcastle England in 1975, Tony Grey has one of the most singular and dynamic voices on the bass guitar today.  Having played bass with an incredibly varied and talented group of people including the pop group Bliss, John Mclaughlin, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Mike Stern, Wayne Krantz and Hiromi (to name just a few), Tony is also a talented composer and multi-instrumentalist that has recorded three solo albums since 2004.

We have had the great pleasure of working with Tony since 2003 and started to have conversations about a new model with features that would make it compact and as light weight as possible. Tony has been intrigued by the Mini MG model that has so much tone despite its compact form factor. 

Featuring a headless design, 30.75″ scale and 16.5mm bridge spacing, the Tony Grey Signature Monarch 6 Elite Headless accomplishes this. It even fits in a standard guitar gig bag! The body, made of Mahogany, is capped with a solid Japanese Maple top, three-piece Hard Rock Maple neck, a Flame Maple Tone Block and a Macassar Ebony fingerboard. The tone is unbelievably huge with a resonance that comes through even when unplugged. It also features detailed appointments that set it apart with a matching Macassar Ebony cap to the now reduced headstock and Japanese maple cap on the rear. Outfitted with Fodera / Seymour Duncan Dual Coil Pickups and a matching ramp, this model maintains the classic Fodera tone, versatility and playability.

Price – USD $13,940
