Overview of the Fame Forum IV Classic Sunburst Dark Back Highgloss

The Fame Forum IV Classic Sunburst Dark Back Highgloss is all about the traditional guitar sound. The strong Khaya body in combination with the solid maple top and the glued Sapelli neck provides a fat sound with long Sustain and brilliant treble sparkle. The slim "D" profile offers a high playability and the ideal basis for precise bendings and fast runs. On the amp, a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB humbucker on the bridge and a Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz on the neck provide versatile sounds ranging from classic Blues to biting rock. Thanks to the coil split option, both humbucker furthermore can also produce authentic single-coil sounds. High-quality Hardware ultimately completes the Fame Forum IV Classic. Accordingly, on the body sits a Tune-O-Matic bridge and a stopbar tailpiece, while at the headstock Schaller/Gotoh tuners guarantee a stable and precise Tuning.

FAME Forum IV Classic Tobacco Sunburst Dark Back Highgloss Detail
The two-piece body of the Fame Forum IV Classic is coherently finished with a Natural binding.

Strong mahogany body & curly maple top.

The classic recipe of the Forum IV Classic includes a two-piece body made of Khaya mahogany without weight relief. This features a strong profile and is glued to the Sapelli neck with a long neck foot in a bombproof and sustain-rich way. Last but not least, the electric guitar has a two-piece curly maple top with unique flame, which makes each Fame Forum unique.

FAME Forum IV Classic Tobacco Sunburst Dark Back Highgloss Body
Two humbuckers from pickup giant Seymour Duncan provide rich and flexible sounds.

Seymour Duncan SH-2 & SH-4

With a pickup lineup from US market leader Seymour Duncan, the Fame Forum IV Classic features a flexible and powerful humbucker setup. A Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz in neck position reproduces warm leads and wide sounding Chords in a defined way, while the SH-4 JB Model humbucker at the bridge reproduces powerful and overtone-rich sounds with the proven midrange punch. Last but not least, both pickups can be switched to single coil operation via the Mini-Toggle-Switch between Volume and Tone controls.

Solid Schaller/Gotoh tuners keep the tuning on the headstock of the Fame Forum IV Classic.

Solid hardware

For professional use on stage and in Studio, the Fame Forum IV Classic is equipped with solid and reliable hardware. Robust premium tuners stand for durability and tuning stability, while a classic combination of Tune-o-Matic and Stopbar ultimately provides a resonant connection to the body and adjustment options for intonation and string action.

Excerpt: Otherwise perfection down to the details. The unvarnished satin surfaces convey an extremely pleasant feel, the ergonomics a high level of playing comfort. Schaller hardware, Seymour Duncan pickups and GraphTech ghost piezo bridge with corresponding Preamp - that's how you score points. Last but not least, both guitars have an absolutely convincing sound and, thanks to their very good vibration characteristics, excellent dynamics and stable Sustain, they serve a wide range of different musical genres.
