Makes sense, thanks!

Sounds good too, mate.

Sweet. Not my thing but that's some gorgeous wood.

What is the point in fanned frets? Never understood them.

The idea is that you get different scale lengths across the strings, so for the lower strings you can have higher tension and keep the rhythms tight and the higher strings don't end up with the brittle tone and ease of bending that comes with the shorter scales.

I've also heard people say that it's slightly ergonomically better since the change in angle of the frets follows the naturally changing position of the hand up and down the neck.

Thats its pretty much, all about scale lengths.

Hard to say if its more ergonomic really at this point, hands are still used to standard frets but it feels good, so maybe
