Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the MUSIC STORE Cologne, Fame presents the Fame Forum IV Modern Highgloss 50th Anniversary Dark Cherry Burst, a very special interpretation of the iconic Forum electric guitar in a limited edition. With its proven ergonomic double-cut design, fine tone woods and first-class components from Seymour Duncan and Gotoh, the Fame Forum IV Modern 50th Anniversary delivers first-class and versatile sounds, incomparable playability and functional hardware equipment.
In addition, Fame gives every Forum IV Modern 50th Anniversary a matching Fame Forum Special gig bag! The anniversary edition of the Fame Forum IV Modern has a slim designed body made of Black Limba, which is finished with a solid, breathtakingly grained cloud maple top.
Black Limba is considered an extremely popular tonewood due to its excellent resonance properties and mid-range warm sound qualities, while the solid top contributes to the overtone-rich vibration behaviour and is guaranteed to attract interested glances with its plastic cove grain in combination with a tasteful Dark Cherry Sunburst Highgloss finish.

FAME FORUM IV MODERN HIGHLIGHTS
Seymour Duncan USA Humbucker in Zebra Look
Only for the special model Fame provides two real Seymour Duncan humbuckers from US production with a refreshing zebra look. In the bridge position, a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB humbucker is at work, which is considered an absolute classic for steamy sounds of blues, rock and metal and shines with high output, well resolving mids and a good reproduction of the treble spectrum. At the neck, on the other hand, the Seymour Duncan SH-2 Jazz provides the right complement to give the Fame Forum IV Modern 50th Anniversary a warm and vocal tone for singing leads and characterful crunch. Both pickups can also be switched to coil split mode to create classic single coil sounds.
GraphTech Ghost ResoMax bridge with piezo pickup
If you want to go beyond the diverse sounds of the two magnetic pickups, you can fall back on a high-quality piezo pickup system, which is integrated in the GraphTech Ghost Loaded ResoMax bridge. The push/pull function of the volume control activates the piezo pickup to provide airy, clear sounds that are ideal for transparent and high-resolution picking and classic acoustic sounds. Via the rear blend control, the sound of the piezo pickup can be continuously added to the magnetic pickup mix.
Slim D-neck and high-quality Gotoh tuners
The neck of the Fame Forum IV Modern 50th Anniversary is also made of Black Limba and with its tried and tested D-profile it provides the perfect basis for implementing the most delicate playing techniques on the 24-fret fingerboard made of the finest ebony. The slim neck foot and the iconic wide cutaways of the Forum design provide ideal accessibility to the highest fingerboard positions, so that the entire range of the instrument can be played without any problems. The Fame Forum IV Modern Highgloss 50th Anniversary Dark Cherry Burst is completed by six tuning machines from the Japanese quality manufacturer Gotoh.
FAME – Handmade in Europe
The Fame Forum IV Modern 20th Anniversary Burl convinces with a careful choice of wood and a flawless finish. The body is made of khaya mahogany with a poplar burl top, whose unique grain is skilfully emphasised by the finish. A noble highlight is undoubtedly the sharply contoured arching of the top with a recess in the cutaway, which ensures unhindered playability in all registers. Thanks to the perfectly proportioned “D” profile, the Sapelli mahogany neck lies comfortably in the hand, so that every note almost plays itself on the ebony fingerboard.
