The Mike Pope Signature Viceroy was an enormous leap forward in the tonal flexibility a single instrument can achieve. Mike Pope’s feedback and ideas were an integral part of developing the final shape and specs for his Viceroy Signature. After its creation we began receiving requests to utilize the Viceroy body shape on custom builds without some of the additional features found on Mike’s signature instrument. Based on the demand for this shape, which in may ways is like a hypothetical blend of our symmetrical Monarch and offset Emperor designs, the Viceroy is now available as its own Fodera body shape.

A player who is seeking a well-balanced bass with a modest offset body will feel right at home on a Viceroy. Highlighting the best points of both its double cut-away cousins, the Viceroy is a natural fit as the newest official Fodera custom.
