The Emperor 5 Standard Fretless was designed from the ground up to combine stunning fretless tone with the legendary playability and pro-player reliability that you expect from Fodera.
The E5SF features a Walnut-Ash-Walnut body, Ebony fingerboard, and quartersawn, one-piece Red Oak neck. The result is a warm and smooth, yet beautifully articulate fretless tone. Red Oak, being a strong but fairly porous wood, has many tiny air pockets that act as "resonating chambers," enhancing the "growl" of the instrument. Round it out with our proprietary Fodera Dual Coil Pickups and Fodera / Pope Standard 3-Band Preamp and you have yourself an incredible instrument just dying to be played.
