Fingerboard and Frets

You can choose from rosewood or maple wood for the fingerboard. Each fingerboard is rectified to the one hundredth of a millimeter to ensure it's exceptionally straight. 24 medium gauge frets will then be fitted, also rectified and polished meticulously.

 

New Hardened Zero Fret

A zero fret has always been fitted on all of our instruments. This slightly higher fretís role is to even open or fretted string notes, ensure perfect string height, minimize string friction and help avoid detuning, especially when using the tremolo. Now, thanks to new technology, weíve been able to harden it so it lasts longer and make it removable so itís easier to replace if needed.
