The Fame Forum IV Modern Stonewashed Blue Highgloss combines contemporary full features with a high level of playing comfort.

High playability and careful wood selection

The Fame Forum IV Modern is made by experienced guitar builders in Europe and accordingly impresses with its careful wood selection and flawless finish. Thus, the body is made of khaya mahogany with a top of curly maple, whose unique grain is emphasized by the high-gloss finish. 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 Stonewashed Blue Highgloss Pickups
With two Seymour Duncan humbuckers and a piezo pickup system in the bridge, the Fame Forum IV Modern delivers versatile sounds.

Seymour Duncan Humbuckerfor sounds between Blues and Rock

Thanks to the versatile pickup equipment, the FameForum IV Modern is 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 that 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 warm vintage voice. Thanks to the coil split circuit, authentic single-coil sounds are also available with the typical bell-like clarity of tone.

FAME Forum IV Modern Stonewashed Blue Highgloss Controls
The front volume control is designed as a push/pull pot and activates the piezo, whose volume is controlled via the rear pot. 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 Modern 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 behavior 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.

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.
