Fodera Emperor - Vintage Bolt on - Let's Discuss

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by um... yeah, May 17, 2003.


  1. This is one instrument i've lusted over for years. I'm pretty much a Fender bender, so when I saw this, I flipped (even though I'm not very big on the fancy tops, save it for the wedding gig, I always say).
    Has anyone played one? Anyone own one? It looks so comfortable. I'd love to hear something about these-as they aren't readily available in Canada-and how they compare to a Fender Jazz; especially with the EMG JV's, and the Mike Pope preamp. And me being a purist, I'd probably get one with a three tone sunburst finish...*gazes off mindlessly towards the ceiling*

  2. Yeah, true, I'm not a fan of gold hardware either, but the clear pickguard I could live with, because that neck pickup cover on the 5 is just the bees knees.

    So let's see,
    Emperor 4 fretted
    Alder body w/ lightly figured maple top
    3 tone sunburst gloss finish
    maple fingerboard w/ green abalone blocks
    clear pickguard w/ chrome cover
    smelling salts

    yep, that'll do me
