I did a search for this before posting, and noticed that it is only mentioned in one thread - so I thought I'd bring it to the attention of the whole forum, because it is fantastic.

http://www.truetemperament.com/

Basically, a new approach to the design of the fretboard where fret positions aren't calculated mathematically, like they are with standard guitars, but with physical measurements. This results in a fine-tuned intonation for each note on the guitar, and it sounds fantastic.

I know that Steve Vai has recently gotten well into this, as well as a bunch of other artists, so, check it out.

56 Frets!!! blink.gif

Whoa man, thanks for sharing. This is definitely intresting. He talks about Just Intonation but it seems to me that the strings have more to do with it than the frets. I see theres a Jem there but they are advertising for bolt-on's. Is'nt the Jem a neck-thru?

I think watching this video allows you to appreciate how good the sound is

However, I wish they'd simply record someone playing chords up the neck. One of the main places you notice poor intonation is between the E and A chords.

The Jem's a bolt-on.

make sure you re-mortgage your house in order to buy one - prices seem pretty extortionate for a neck - Have known about these for a while and have the fret wave system on my guitar which corrects the two worst offending frets that are used frequently in open chords.

Hey Nick can you tell us a bit more about this system. Like how it behaves in real life playing and can you bend with it properly etc..

bends are the same and playability is the same - it only terrifies people because it appears so different - but in actuality there is no noticeable different in the feel.

660 euro for a neck ohmy.gif ? Steve Vai wrote Passion and Warfare with a normal fretboard and it sounds amazing, so...I think that my normal frets can still work... wink.gif

I want to say that this neck only should work with a particular scale, because if we want to tune properly we must know that every note have a different frecuencie depending in witch scale was played. It means that for instance if we play a G major the A is 440 but if we play in other scale it would be for example a 439,7...

I read about it in some books... I think that also Guthrie Govan explains it in his books. That's mathematics, my friends !!!
