At the amplifier, original Seymour Duncan USA pickups provide versatile sounds. Here, the Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB at the bridge stands for high output and focused assertiveness, while the Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz at the neck combines warm sounds with endless sustain. Last but not least, the Fame Forum II features reliable hardware in the form of a Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece and encapsulated tuners

FAME FORUM II HIGHLIGHTS
Traditional mahogany construction
Carefully selected mahogany is used for the construction of the body and neck of the Fame Forum II Natural Satin, which in combination with the glued neck guarantees a warm and powerful sound. The combination of the slim “D” neck profile and the classic 12″ radius of the rosewood fingerboard offers a high level of playing comfort right up to the highest registers. The elaborate, sharply contoured top carving is also a particularly noble visual highlight.
Reliable hardware and GraphTech nut
An extremely reliable hardware equipment completes the Fame Forum II Natural Satin. The height-adjustable Tune-O-Matic bridge on two thumbwheels guarantees perfect intonation and a comfortable string position, while the strings are held by the traditional stop bar. Behind the GraphTech Black TUSQ saddle, encapsulated tuners on the headstock ensure that the Fame Forum II is tuned with lasting precision.
Sound diversity through Seymour Duncan pickups
The Fame Forum II uses original Seymour Duncan humbuckers from the USA. The Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB is the reference for a powerful and assertive sound at the bridge. With a tight bass foundation, sharply focused mids and enormous presence in the highs, the pickup presents every riff and solo extremely precisely. The Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz on the neck, on the other hand, convinces with its warm vintage sound that presents every note with harmonious sustain. Additional sound variations in the form of first-class single coil sounds can be called up with the help of the Coil Split Mini switch.
FAME – Handmade in Europe
When you hold and play a FAME Forum, you can feel the years of expertise and dedication of the instrument makers, most of whom are musicians themselves. “Little known instrument makers with a special eye for detail” – this is exactly true: Mayones pays attention to the quality and subtle elegance of the products. They used only the best woods – carefully dried and stored.
