frets/fretboard 6

this is going to take some time...

possibly might require a part 2

Caparison Guitars Apple Horn 8 string

Caparison Guitars Apple Horn Yellow TT - Mattias "IA" Eklundh Signature. it has the apple horn logo routed into the body!

Mattias "IA" Eklundh a truly insane person in the best possible way. let's see the 8 in action

now let 's see the yellow TT put to work

so what's with the funny frets

true temperament fretting system

a Swedish inventor called Anders Thidell spent 15 years coming up with the idea that the spacing on a traditional fretboard, from note to note, was horribly out of tune. so he adjusted each and every string/fret contact point on the fingerboard separately - to the point of precision. every note is exact, and in tune

have a look at Steve Vai talking about it. he has the system on his Jem guitars

 now the next instrument is like a dream come true....

 Strandberg 8 string with fanned frets and true temperament

someone had to do it. the amount of time just thinking about approaching this job!

go have a look at Caparison Guitars. the instruments above are only two of many
