Currently, we are using maple and walnut wood for our hardwood fretboards. We occasionally have stock of unusual or exotic woods for special requests. The wire frets on the hardwood fretboard are slightly higher and more visible than those on the standard polycarbonate fretboards. Both versions have zero frets and should have the same intonation.
PEGHEDS GEARED TUNERS
The advantage of using Peghed tuners is that the tuning is more accurate. Pegheds are precision crafted in the USA with a 4:1 planetary gear reduction built in, thus making the tuning much easier. They are lighter in weight; very sleek looking in all black and complement the instrument.
SIDE FRET MARKERS
These are hand inlaid fret markers located on the side of the fretboard facing the player for easy fret location
PLAYER SOUND PORT
A sound port is a hole in the side of the body facing the player and directs more sound to the player’s ear, with no reduction in the overall sound projection from the instrument.
