Description

The special feature of a multiscale guitar is that the vibrating length of the string is matched to its optimum tone. Everyone knows that, for example,  a bass has a longer scale length than a guitar. This is not by chance. Rather, the bass needs the longer scale, in order to best present the optimum sound.

Almost every guitarist also recognizes the fact that the low strings drop slightly in comparison to the high strings and have different tensions due to their respective diameters. For example, the low E string is softer to depress than, for example, the G string. Of course, there are also guitars that have pronounced basses, but these usually sound a bit weaker in the highs.

The multiscale guitar solves all of these problems. Each single string has the vibration length that is optimal for its respective frequency. Accordingly, the instrument has fat basses, crispy mids and brilliant highs. In addition, all strings have the same tension, so the very fast runs over several strings are much easier to play.

This is further supported by the fact that the frets are arranged obliquely on the fingerboard. The fingerboard is therefore quite a bit longer for the low strings than for the high strings.

Sides and floor are made of solid African mahogany, the top is made of solid, carefully selected Canadian spruce. The sound hole is covered by an abalone insert. Fingerboard and bridge are made of ebony. Gilded mechanics ensure good tuning in every respect.

Absolut Killer Gitarre! Klasse!
- : (0 out of 0 rated this rating as useful)
Diese Gitarre ist unglaublich gut verarbeitet - alles stimmt bis ins letzte Detail. Klingt auch wunderschön. Sich an die Fächerbünde gewöhnen geht ganz leicht. Binnen 5 Minuten vergisst man, dass sie so angeordnet sind: Man spielt darauf los wie auf jeder normalen Gitarre. Nur an die perfekte Intonation merkt man überhaupt, dass da doch was ganz neues mit im Spiel ist. Eine gitarristische Offenbarung! Und, bei diesem Preis, auch eine ökonomische Offenbarung - es geht ja doch tolle Produkte zu fairen Preisen herzustellen und an den Kunden weiter zu geben. Die Leute bei Folkfriends sind auch sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und reagieren sofort auf Fragen und Anfragen. So! Das kommende Wochenende sieht plötzlich sehr viel musikalischer aus als ich erwartet hatte.
