i agree to most of your stuff. .Originally Posted by abhijitnath
it is a fanned fret system developed by guys at novx . however the patents are still under a little debate .. anyway no need to go there ..
fanned fret system was developed keeping the natural position of playing hand in mind ... ever noticed when playing high nots up the neck, the hand tilts slightly away towards the headstock and the index fingers makes an angle across the fretboard? if you look at the fanned fret system you would notice that in that situation the fingers would fit really nicely! resulting in easy to play ergonomic guitar ..
this particular guitar .. is a monster haha ... it really is! .. everything is custom made. .from bridge, pickups, body, fretboard to wiring .. the intonation and string tuning wont be a problem becuase for these beasts they employ methods used in the piano tunings and setups ..
for your lowest note @abhi ... lol it wont be a C# mate .. 11hz?? naaa ... ear cant distinguish any sound below the 20hz frequency .. it must be above 20hz .. but considering the thickness of the string.. i doubt it would be anything really high ..
when it comes to these guitars .. the string and frequencies are setup in the way that particular sets of strings perform as baritone, tenor, alto and soparano ..
with this guitar the only problem i see is with the baritone .. i would really like to know what notes are them strings playin ..
