    Not available yet and Color looks crappy but I don't trust Thomann photos at all, they make everything look like shit. https://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_dullahan_ft_24_roasted_ib.htm?o=6&search=1592478964&fbclid=IwAR1m1LcP2qkGAtwxxl0hOnazPugEdPk2LK1dnlSW4Sf0wZ5f7k9vrFyf6XQ

    "You can use different sized or shaped frets for different parts of the neck." Guitar Player, a "reputable publication", ran this article. https://www.guitarplayer.com/gear/tech-bench-gary-brawers-refret-checklist Terrible reckless advice? Life hack of the century? Strangely unsubstantiated...

    Anyone with any experience of fanned fret guitars? Im considering an Ormsby SX (headstock is like reverse ESP M shape headstock) it will be a 6 string fanned fret from 27'' down to 25.5''. For anyone who has tried one how did you find it compared to a normal guitar? Difficult to get used to...

    Warmoth made another good comparison video now! So yeah I'm not very surprised because I've had similar results when changing bridges (difference constructions/saddle materials etc) And just like Aron says in the video, to really hear differences you gotta listen back to back on recordings...

    Shipping and Custom Taxes wise I can only go for the Digital edition but I would love to have that shirt :metal:

    How would i go about spot leveling a guitar where 2 high frets are next to each other? If i use a fret rocker on 11-12-13 it rocks but it also rocks 12-13-14. Im getting some buzz when fretting the 11th fret but lots of buzz when fretting 9 and 10. Making me think the 11th fret is the worst...

    Ok, this is an odd one - I have a Warwick 5-string bass that I generally like and for the most part plays pretty well, but two of the frets are visibly ever-so-slightly lifting from the fretboard on the treble side, enough that I can slip part of a fingernail underneath them. As a result, fret...

    Any of you guys own a flawless guitar? Like there's absolutely no buzzy frets or slight tuning problem or occasionally scratchy pickup selector etc? :) I have some nice guitars, but there's always something wrong with each once of them - even my favourite KV2 has always been slightly buzzy...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    When I'm lookin at guitars I can't think of buying any of them because 99% have regular frets. I have SS frets on all my guitars now except my newly aquired RR24 with super worn down frets. I'm going to have it refretted at PLEK as soon as I can afford it. Everytime I look at a guitar to buy, I...

  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I see this at times, and people say that fanned frets are "good for intonation" ... Why would that be? Wouldn't the intonation be exactly the same as a regular guitar? Just differelt scales per string :scratch: And also, wouldn't it be hard to bend some notes when the frets contradicts the...
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Or do I just have small hands? So I learned the basic riffs for ZZ Top's touch with my teacher's guidance. But I am at home trying the bluesy shuffle riff and man is it hard. It has a bunch of two note chords that start off 2 frets apart (fine), 3 frets (fine) then 5 frets apart (WTF my pinky...

    Fret Polishing Rubber Erasers 1000 Grit Set of 2 - Philadelphia Luthier Tools & Supplies, LLC These things are friggin' AWESOME. They're easier to use than the Dunlop micofiber fret polishing cloth, don't clog up as quickly, and the frets come out just as smooth and shiny.

    So yeah, went into one of my regular pawn stores and they were having their semi regular 20% off sale. Picked up a Roland HS-60 (a Juno 106 in a different case with in built speakers) and they also had a vintage Chapman Stick. It was in awful condition, frets were green, strings are so rusted...

    Weirdly enough, both guitars I have on hand for playing these days have Gibson sized frets (an actual Gibson and an 80s Rhoads), and I'm finding I like it better. Anyone else in the same camp?
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hello! A little while ago I was watching Alexi Laiho do a demo of his signature guitar and he said the last 3 frets were scalloped. I know what scalloped frets are, but I really don't know what the purpose of them are. Would someone mind informing me? Thanks! -Michael

    How to Customize Action with Gibson's Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut Actually an interesting development (that traditionalists will probably not care for). I'm not a huge fan of Zero Frets, as I've never seen that huge of a need for consistency of tone, especially with high gain. Although usually you...
