Thanks for yur assessment. How do results compare to just using an Earvana nut?Originally posted by Fret Tech
IMO, the BFTS is not a requirement for every guitar or guitarist. And I say this as a BFTS retrofitter.
If you are amongst those few folks that have the proverbial "perfect pitch", or if you have exhausted all avenues for getting a particular guitar to produce "good sounding" chord arpeggios in all positions, or you have a guitar that absolutely requires some manner of additional intonation tweaking, you will probably appreciate the BFTS - else, don't even bother.
In summary: the BFTS does exactly what it sez it'll do. You can never get a deflected string instrument perfectly in tune - you can only get a compromised "well tuning" at best. YMMV.
Both the BFTS and Earvana use the same shelf overhang principal, but Buzz takes it to a far higher and better level, IMO. Again, none of this stuff is mandatory for anyone, IMO.Originally posted by Tone_Terrific

I haven't tried this system out yet, but do be aware that any deflected string fretted instrument can never be perfectly intonated, ever. At best, it'll always be a compromise of sorts.
I would agree. Although I have retrofitted 6 of my guitars to the Buzz Feiten system. I tried one at first. Once I got used to it I must admit that My other guitars just frustrated me in the studio from that moment on. These guitars all had good intonation too.IMO, the BFTS is not a requirement for every guitar or guitarist
