Product information - FAME Forum IV Modern Semi Hollow Honey Burst Highgloss

Semi Hollow electric guitar with flamed maple-top, Seymour Duncan pickups and piezo pickup system

The Fame Forum IV Modern Semi Hollow Honey Burst Satin convinces as a versatile electric guitar with contemporary full equipment and high playing comfort. The slim mahogany body in semi-resonance construction with chic curly maple top assumes a comfortable playing position, with the generous Cutaways offering unobstructed access across the entire neck. This is crafted from mahogany and traditionally glued, while the flat "D" profile fits comfortably in the hand, making any riff or lick feel like it comes naturally on the ebony fingerboard. On the amp, the proven combination of a Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz on the neck and a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB on the bridge delivers versatile tones between pop, Blues and rock, which are extended thanks to coil-split and authentic single-coil tones. The integrated piezo pickup system provides furthermore first-class acoustic guitar sounds, so there are no limits to the tonal variety and musical expression. A Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece and precise locking tuners complete the Fame Forum IV Modern Semi Hollow Honey Burst Highgloss.

The Fame Forum IV Modern Semi Hollow Honey Burst Highgloss combines contemporary full features with a high level of playing comfort.

High playability and careful wood selection

The Fame Forum IV Modern Semi-Hollow is crafted by experienced guitar makers in Europe and accordingly impresses with careful wood selection and impeccable workmanship. Thus, the body, which is equipped with a resonance chamber, is made of khaya mahogany with a top made of curly maple, whose unique grain is emphasized by the Finish. The noble highlight here is undoubtedly the sharply contoured arching of the top with a recess in the cutaway, which ensures unhindered playability across all registers. The Sapelli mahogany neck sits comfortably in the hand thanks to the perfectly proportioned "D" profile so that every note plays almost by itself on the ebony fingerboard.

FAME Forum IV Modern Semi Hollow Honey Burst Highgloss Pickups
With two Seymour Duncan humbuckers and a piezo pickup system in the bridge, the Fame Forum IV Modern Semi Hollow delivers versatile sounds.

Seymour Duncan humbucker for sounds between Blues and Rock

Thanks to the versatile pickup equipment, the Forum IV shows itself to be particularly flexible in terms of sound. With a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB at the bridge and a Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz at the neck, a proven pair of humbuckers is used, which delivers the right sound for every genre between blues, pop, rock and even metal. Here, the bridge pickup convinces with a high Output and the enormous assertiveness of its sharply focused mids, while the neck pickup brings every note to life with endless Sustain and a warm vintage voice. Thanks to the coil split circuit, authentic single-coil sounds with the typical bell-like clarity of tone are also at hand. 

FAME Forum IV Modern Semi Hollow Honey Burst Highgloss Detail
The front volume control is a push/pull pot and activates the piezo. Via the mini switch the humbuckers can be split to single coils.

Piezo pickup system

In addition to the magnetic pickups, the Fame Forum IV is equipped with a GraphTech Ghost piezo pickup system, which is integrated into the bridge and has an active preamp. The system is activated via a pull on the front volume knob and from then on delivers authentic acoustic guitar sounds with brilliant highs and the typical attack behaviour at the amplifier. The volume of the piezo system can be adjusted via the rear potentiometer so that mixed sounds with the magnetic Seymour Duncan pickups are also possible.

Hardware from Schaller/Gotoh and GraphTech

Last but not least, the Fame Forum IV Modern Semi Hollow convinces with high-quality hardware equipment, which completes operations on stage and in the Studio with unlimited reliability. From the traditional stopbar tailpiece, the strings are fed over the GraphTech Resomax Tune-O-Matic bridge, whose String Saver graphite material tail pieces house the Ghost Piezo elements. Also from GraphTech comes the Black-TUSQ saddle, behind which the strings are held at the headstock by precise locking mechanics

Forum IV Modern review

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.
