GNG Fëanor 6 JMS - Fanned
"I searched GNG on the web and I saw some cool videos about amazing guitarists, extended range instruments and powerful riffs, then I discovered the Fëanor headless bass. And I’ve fallen in love. We spent an afternoon defining my Fëanor custom: measures, features, woods, finishes and look!
(Fabiano A. - Italy)
A modern headless lightweight design, to fit the needs of modern musician and follow the playing techniques and tone research evolution. With a better reach of the higher frets, a versatile fanned fretboard (33"-37") to reach an impressive balanced frequency response, tight low strings with singing smooth treble. The balanced barycenter, ergonomic fanned fretting, hi-grade italian hardware and special neck profile will bring the player to faster and clearer performances. A wide variety of tonewood combinations available, to perfectly tune and match the combination that fits best for every single musician, with his own needs and personal tone-research.
Can be enriched with a luxurious 1/4" flat-top wood with the laskin's bevel armrest. Tonewoods are carefully selected worldwide for the best figure, stability and sound properties.
The proportions are studied for the perfect balance.
The access at the higher frets has plenty of space for the most comfortable shredding in the higher range.
My comfortable neck's profile is available, asymmetrical for multistring instruments: it allows tireless hours of study and rock performances.
Other traditional or custom profiles are available too, just tell me your preferred neck style or hand size.
Since 2006, stainless steel frets are included in all my basses, due to the unbeatable performance superiority and lasting unwearable feature of the hard, hi-polished surface: expect to go faster and play cleanly.
