This is a Monarch model and it is our top seller Fodera bass. It is basically identical to the Victor Wooten model, except this one is a Bolt on and comes with the modern smaller headstock. Few basses offer the amazing combination of comfort, punch and dynamics that this one delivers. It comes with 40-95 strings and action can be set ridiculiusly low with no fretbuzz. Apart from the addictive sound, the acoustic response of this bass is simply incredible. The notes seem to jump off the fretboard and everything is just simpler to play. That's why Victor Wooten was hooked on this model since he played it for the first time in 1984. Try it for a few seconds and you'll know why it is several steps above other similarly designed basses. It is also remarkable that you can go from perfect fingerstyle to slap and tapping sounds without touching the controls at all.
