X20 Woody Bubinga Fan Fret

Ken approached us about building a special custom version of our X20. After going through various veneer options he finally settled on Bubinga. Ken wanted to add fan frets to the build to give him a looser feel in the trebles while maintaining the power and tension on the bass side and as he was mostly tuning in standard we decided upon 25.5″ to 24″ scale.
The bridge on these custom fan fret guitars are hand-carved from a block of laminated carbon fibre and here we have left the carbon exposed to contrast beautifully with the Bubinga.
