    Are there any Fodera-philes here that explain the differences between the Imperial and the Emperor?

    I'm specifically looking at the 6 string model. I looked at the Fodera website and there really isn't much specific info on each of the basses.

    Any help is appreciated.

    The body shape.

    Emperor can be bolt on if wanted.

    They really aren't that different aside from asthetics...just like all their basses.

    The Imperial is the single-cutaway version of the Monarch. The Emperor II is the single-cutaway version of the Emperor.

    The only real difference between the Emperor and the Monarch is the body shape. Though there are some differences in options generally, ie you don't see too many PJ Emperors out there.

    I checked the site again and now I see the differences.

    Thanks so much for the photos Andrew. That really helped.
