The newly refreshed Emperor Standard model blends the aesthetics, tone, playability and pro-player reliability bass players have come to expect from Fodera.

The Emperor Standard was designed using a combination of tone-woods, the added range of a tight and responsible low-B, and the ergonomic Emperor body shape to create a combination that works for virtually any gig and playing situation. It features a hand-selected alder body with a figured walnut top, matched with an incredibly stable, 3-piece quarter-sawn hard rock maple neck with a Pau Ferro fingerboard to deliver warm, tight lows, transparent mids and just enough top-end to make for an incredibly balanced sonic palette. 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 the fully adjustable, custom designed, bell-brass bridge.

The Emperor Standard features a set of Fodera/Duncan Dual-Coil pickups and the Fodera/Pope 3-Band Standard Preamp. 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. Compared to an active soapbar style pickup, the tone is warmer and more organic. 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 musical sounding EQ, and active/passive operation for maximum 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.
