The Fame Forum IV Classic is all about the traditional guitar sound. The strong Khaya body in combination with the solid maple top and the glued Sapelli neck provide a fat sound with long sustain and brilliant treble sparkle. The slim “D” profile offers a high level of playing comfort and the ideal basis for precise bends 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 humbuckers can also produce authentic single coil sounds. High-quality hardware completes the Fame Forum IV Classic. Accordingly, a Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece sit on the body, while Gotoh tuners guarantee stable and precise tuning on the headstock

FAME FORUM IV CLASSIC HIGHLIGHTS
Seymour Duncan SH-2 & SH-4
With pickups from the US market leader Seymour Duncan, the Fame Forum IV Classic has 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 sounds rich in overtones with the proven midrange punch. Last but not least, both pickups can be switched to single coil operation via the mini toggle switch between the volume and tone controls.
For professional use on stage and in the studio, the Fame Forum IV Classic is equipped with solid and reliable hardware from the German parts giant Schaller. Robust machine heads stand for durability and tuning stability, while the famous security locks guarantee danger-free performances on stage. A classic combination of Tune-o-Matic bridge and tailpiece ultimately provide a resonant connection to the body and adjustment options for intonation and string position.
