Why You Need a Fan Fret Guitar

Short scale, standard scale, or all of the above? An increasing number of modern guitar builders are employing a multi-scale fan fret design, and we are loving the results.

While the concept is still relatively fresh in the guitar world, it's been used for a long time on a variety of other instruments. By combining a shorter scale on the treble side with a standard or long scale on the bass, luthiers are able to optimize the tonal response in all registers, while the fan fret design provides ergonomic benefits for the player. Fingerstyle players in particular will likely appreciate all that fan fret guitars have to offer!
