Pre-Owned and in mint codition. The Monarch Standard was designed using a combination of tone-woods that works beautifully on virtually any gig and playing situation. Hand-selected, beautiful Olive top, over an Alder body. Incredibly stable, 3-pc quarter-sawn Hard Rock Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard; delivers deep, tight lows, and incredibly balanced mids and treble. It also offers a 24-fret PLEK’d compound-radius fingerboard, providing the effortless playability Fodera has become known for as well as the powerful sustain and resonance from their fully adjustable, custom designed, bell-brass bridge.
The Monarch Standard features a set of Fodera/Duncan dual-coil pickups and the Fodera/Pope Standard Preamp with 3-band EQ. Designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan, the passive Dual Coil pickups were designed to provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Wired in parallel, these pickups offer a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight yet come with the added flexibility of full single-coil operation providing the snap, warmth, and mid-range punch of classic single-coil Jazz Bass pickups. Designed for optimal performance, the 3-band Fodera / Pope preamp offers an incredibly low noise flow, a very musical sounding EQ, and active / passive operation for the utmost reliability and flexibility whether you’re on stage or in the studio. Together, these electronics let you tailor your tone, from deep and round to bright and punchy and everything in between.
Every Monarch Standard is hand-crafted in Fodera's Brooklyn, New York shop.
