haha. it has perfect intonation. most guitarsd tend to go off tune going up the fret at about the 4th fret, it's the worst on the G string. to compensate that, you can see (i think) the frets on those crazy guitars are further from the nut on the G string's 4th fret.


i wonder how it'd be like bending on the G string's 4th fret... you'd be bending... but the pitch would go lower???

All guitars do. It's impossible to achieve perfect intonation with straight frets. Like the piano, the guitar's tuning is a compromise that allows it to play in all keys equally well, but slightly out of tune. This is why tuning to a chord is a terrible idea. Tuning a guitar to play one key perfectly will throw all of the other keys audibly out of tune.

even the earvanna compensated nuts are so expensive.


..and worthless, for reasons stated above.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

^they're worth something for people with perfect pitch, which even the slightest pitch difference would annoy the hell out of them.

You don't even need perfect pitch. The difference is quite obvious once you've played one, even to the layman. Especially with complex chords.

But you're all wrong.

Fanned frets is something used specifically by novax guitars and is supposedly made for 'hand economy'. Players comfort or something.



Looks weird, but all the players I know using them swear by it and say its a million times more comfortable.
