Love your Monarch !!! Please post more pictures of it
Thanks, careful what you ask for. Nothing on phone right now does it justice, so lemme see what I can snap...
Bass initially came with saddles that constantly slipped, and I took an embarrassing amount of time to get back to the shop for a fix (instead just carried hex key religiously). Finally got back there, they swapped a new bridge under warranty, and happily it seems to be staying put. As if I didn't like this instrument enough before that was sorted!
Best looking Fodera I've seen.
Hey the radiuses ramp and your bass looks fantastic.
I had a small experiment before the decision made.
1. Lay down the bass
2. Remove the strings and covers
3. Restrung and raised the pickups to the height I used to set (2-3mm spacing) tissue paper helps.
4. Play and listen if you find a different in passive mode.
I would say you could compensate the tone and frequency by the active electronic but i prefer open pole more as a passive junkie.
It is, but I think I get it. I had a Fodera P for a while and loved it--best P bass I've ever played. But it was a lot of money to have in a P bass, and I'm not a "Leo got it right the first time" kinda guy, so I sold it and another bass to get a Monarch Standard, which I have been loving. If I got another P, it probably would be a MiM one with an upgraded pup.
I'm (for sure) an outlier, but I do the Monarch + Fender P thing too.
Actually the Monarch P + Fender P thing lol... and for even further redundancy, I would 100% trade my AmStd P up to get another Monarch P at some point. The Fodera makes my Fender pretty well irrelevant, except it's a predictable backup and I love having one string with flats (plus the J has a lot of the focus on my Monarch). The Fodera playability is preposterous and with the tone rolled off can honestly feel more P than my P.
Hi Joel. I tried to send you a PM but your mailbox is full. If you see this, could you PM me? Thanks.
Hello Fodera team!
I have a question. I am currently trying to find a picture of a 7 String Fodera that was said to have been built a long time ago. It is said that a 7 string Monarch was built years ago. Does anyone have pictures of this bass? The only other 7 string basses that I've seen from Fodera are these three:
Anthony Wellington has one as well. Rare birds for sure. Are you considering having one made?
Yes, he does! Actually, I believe the one that he has is the 7 string Emperor that I posted. I know he has a huge collection of Fodera's...does he possibly have another 7 string Fodera?
But yes, I am considering having one built in the future. I noticed that the 7 strings tend to be Emperor or Emperor II basses. I would love to see a 7 string Monarch!
i remember seeing a 7 string Monarch on their old website....the blue background website if I’m remembering correctly.
I love simple basses like that last one. My favorite look for sure.

Another Fodera P + MIM P combo.
I use the MIM P for ugly weather, jams, etc., but I play the Fodera every chance I get.
The MIM P plays great! (Of course the Fodera does.)
That set up should definitely inspire you!
Excited bout the Christmas season. Here is a pic with my two sons, Noah and Gabriel! And of course my Ivory Monarch...
This one? Not a high quality pic though.
yep that’s it!
@eude is correct, Grant Tyrie owned those.
@Gunga Din What was the name of the hock shop? Did anyone ever find out if they were stolen or sold legitimately? I see the YY was sold in Instagram.
Not sure if the MG fretless was also sold that way, but it is up on Reverb now, at an astronomical price - about the same price as a new one.

It received a little wear on both ends at some point.
Duncanson & Edwards.
Apparently sold legit. A Pedulla turned up there recently, too. Also legit.
