    Looks great! I would love to tinker with a fanned fret guitar. I play 7-strings, and it'd be neat to have a 27-25.5 fan.

    Fanned is nice. It's interesting that acoustic players seem to be embracing it since one might think they'd be more traditional than electric players.

    That's very cool. I like the looks of this one, love to try out one with fanned frets one day.

    Gorgeous guitar.

    I love fanned frets. Have them on my Dingwall bass. Would love them on a guitar. Great concept.

    Very nice!

    I have two Novax guitars, and they're wonderful instruments -- fanned frets make big, clear sounds!
