I was toying around with the thought of fanned frets over the weekend. It seems to me as if fanned frets would be an ergonomic feature just as well as twisting the neck – giving a more comfortable wrist position. Anyway, I will not argue for or against. When I sketched up the fanned shape, however, the shape that I had designed for this build didn’t look good anymore. I will not incorporate fanned frets in this build, but I couldn’t help drawing up some new shapes:
I have been very inspired by Rick Toone’s builds, which is pretty apparent. Almost all of these shapes build on being carved in multiple dimensions as if consisting of composite shapes that are intertwined. I’m still set to go with the original designs. Maybe the above ones will make it into a future build?
