Fodera Ryan Martinie Signature 5-String Bass "Blondie"

From Fodera:

Born in Peoria, Illinois in 1975, Ryan Martinie has one of the most unique and technical styles in modern bass playing. He grew up studying jazz, classical vocals, and playing in local progressive rock bands. In 1998, he joined the heavy metal band Mudvayne and went on to be at the forefront of the nu-metal genre. Most recently, he’s worked on his own fusion/progressive rock band Soften The Glare. Ryan has also worked as a guest performer with Kurai and as a live member of Korn.

We had the immense pleasure of working with Ryan to develop a new model based on our Monarch body style to meet the demands of his tone and playing style, as well as his ergonomic preference. What we developed together was a Monarch-based 5 string instrument with incredible ergonomics and playability with a tonal range that can cover everything from jazz fusion to progressive rock to heavy metal.

Featuring a 34” scale, 26-fret design with a 16.5mm bridge spacing, the Ryan Martinie Signature “Blondie” model meets the demands of his playing style. The body, made of Korina, is capped with a Quilted Maple/Pomelle Sapele top, and paired with a 3-piece Wenge neck and Ebony fingerboard. The tone is massive, harmonically rich, and incredibly touch responsive with a focused and pronounced midrange. It’s unique features are a shortened Monarch body-style with a deeper cutaway, redesigned bolt-on heel cut to allow for easier upper fret access, a new “Zig-Zag” top design, scooped fingerboard end, double-slanted pickup placement, and string-through-body construction. Outfitted with EMG J/J pickups and Fodera Standard Preamp, this model retains the hallmark features of Fodera while accommodating the needs of a player as technical and progressive as Ryan.
