The Fame Forum IV Modern 20th Anniversary Burl Black Transparent celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Fame brand as a strictly limited special model with high-quality premium tonewoods, contemporary full equipment and high playing comfort. The slim mahogany body with a chic burl poplar top not only presents its visually appealing refinements, but also offers a comfortable playing position, with the generous cutaways providing unobstructed access across the entire neck. This is made from mahogany and traditionally glued, while the flat “D” profile sits comfortably in the hand, so that every riff or lick comes naturally on the ebony fingerboard. At the amp, the proven combination of a Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz at the neck and a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB at the bridge delivers versatile sounds between pop, blues and rock, which are enhanced with authentic single-coil tones thanks to the coil split. The integrated piezo pickup system also provides first-class acoustic guitar sounds, so that there are no limits to tonal diversity and musical expression. A Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece and precise locking tuners from Gotoh complete the Fame Forum IV Modern 20th Anniversary Burl Black Transparent.

FAME FORUM IV MODERN HIGHLIGHTS
Seymour Duncan – Sounds between Blues and Rock
Thanks to the versatile pickup equipment, the Fame Forum IV Modern is particularly flexible in 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 a warm vintage voice. Thanks to the coil split circuit, authentic single coil sounds with the typical bell-like clarity of tone are also available.
Hardware from Schaller, Gotoh and GraphTech
Last but not least, the Fame Forum IV Modern convinces with a high quality hardware equipment, which completes applications on stage and in the studio with unlimited reliability. From the tailpiece, the strings are fed through the GraphTech Resomax Tune-O-Matic bridge, whose String Saver graphite tailpieces house the Ghost Piezo elements. The Black TUSQ nut is also from GraphTech, behind which the strings are held by precise locking tuners on the headstock. To ensure that the Fame Forum IV Modern hangs securely on the strap even during the wildest action on stage, it is also equipped with the popular Security Locks.
High playing comfort and careful wood selection
The Fame Forum IV Modern is made by experienced guitar builders in Europe and convinces accordingly with a careful wood selection and a flawless finish. The body is made of Khaya mahogany with a top of curly maple, whose unique grain is emphasised by the finish. The noble highlight is without a doubt the sharply contoured arching of the top with a recess in the cutaway, which ensures unhindered playability in all registers. The Sapelli mahogany neck sits comfortably in the hand thanks to the perfectly proportioned “D” profile, so that every note almost plays itself on the ebony fingerboard.
