Re: Fanned-Fret 7-string Impulse Buy

Certainly looks interesting.
Nice score!
I'm guessing he put one bass tuner on there to cope with the thick lowest string.Surely he could have drilled a regular guitar tuner ?
Looks like ABM individual bridge/saddle jobbies. Cool.

I suppose it's only recently that anyone is making an 8 string pickup and even now there's only Lundgren and a few custom pickup makers (Hauessel will make just about anything).
I suppose this piskup system works well with the bass/guitar pickups handling their specific strings.
I really fancy giving a fanned-fret guitar a try to see how much of a difference it makes.
I should imagine everything will feel more balanced,tension wise etc.

Look forward to a review of this beast !
