The zero fret is a tuned fret allowing the open note to have better intonation. Thats basically the concept behind it. Whether or not it works is left to your own design, Ive always thought they would be awful to deal with in accordance with a locking nut but who knows. Interestingly enough I have to add One of buzz feitens principle ideas was that scale length is generally too long on most guitars, principly with the open notes and first few frets.

if so that string has a brown note for sure, being that deep
I believe they tune it to F.

Some songs they added an octaved low-B (yes, the same as the 5-string basses lowest string) below their standard 7-string tuning.


and people wonder what causes the earthquakes...

Somewhat incorrect.

It is not tuned.

Also, according to some luthiers, a zero fret facilitates low action as it won't require as much neck bow.

I should have been clearer maybe. The purpose is to improve intonation and give the typical tone you would get with a fret, but basically a brass nut works better if you ask me. It doesnt really give lower or higher action. It just means that your action is going to be on sided Which is why they arent further used specifically with a floyd equipped guitar in order to pull up on the vibrato bar your gonna have to do some things to the action you normally wouldnt

looks like a good idea, but i'd imagine fretwear would be a huge nuisance... I mean, it's easier to replace a nut than a fret, you know?

Then again, maybe if you could snag some of those super-hard Parker Fly frets... But can you use those in a conventional wooden neck, or are they too hard to work with?

Ok, enough randomness for one evening. back to work.

Warmoth sells those frets now. They are hard to work with as I would imagine but do it once and do it right and not have to do it again for a LONG time sounds nicer to me

sniperfrommars: I'm no expert, I just know that a Vigier plays like mad, plus, the best example in supreme guitar technology the last couple of decades, the Steinberger, had zero frets. And Ned Steinberger is a genious so I say it's a good thing :D

Steinberger had graphite neck no need to worry about the neck freeking out and you didnt have much control over action change anyway. As far as vigier I havent played em, but ive heard good and bad things about em. Didnt Ron thal used to endorse em back in the day? The concept of a zero fret isnt a bad idea. its just better in theory than real life

Yes, they do. I remember reading that a while back. I love Line6.
