The Forum IV Classic P90 Solid Black Top expands the sound spectrum of the popular Forum design with characterful single-coil sounds and presents itself as the perfect companion for fans of blues and classic rock. Besides its careful wood selection, which consists of exotic mahogany, finest maple and selected ebony, the Fame Forum IV Classic P90 presents a solid hardware equipment of renowned manufacturers and two pickups of the market leader Seymour Duncan wound in the United States. In addition, a matching Fame gig bag is included in the scope of delivery of every Fame Forum IV. In order to be able to offer guitarists of all colours as comfortable a playing experience as possible, the Fame Forum relies on fretting in medium jumbo format. The ebony fingerboard has 24 frets, which provide the full range of two whole octaves for each string and give lead guitarists in particular additional playing possibilities in the higher registers. At the back, on the other hand, the balanced D-profile of the Sapelli mahogany neck provides the right thumb rest for cleanly picked chords and precise layered playing.

FAME FORUM IV CLASSIC p90 HIGHLIGHTS
Seymour Duncan USA PickUp with coil split option
The Fame Forum IV Classic P90 combines classic humbucker sounds for steaming riffs of Blues to Hard Rock in bridge position and vocal, expressive neck sounds of the single coil in P90 format. The Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB humbucker, which has been tried and tested for 40 years now, operates in the classic hot rod manner with increased output and a well-resolved frequency spectrum, while the Seymour Duncan P90 Sopabar aptly complements the distinctive sound of the neck position with its pronounced high mids. A coil split option for the bridge humbucker is also available via the additional mini switch.
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 action.
Strong body made of khaya mahogany
The Full Thickness Double Cut Body made of African Khaya Mahogany provides the right resonance, which gives the basic sound of the Fame Forum IV Classic P90 its unmistakable character. In addition, a two-piece top made of solid maple with ergonomic carvings is used to evoke the vibration behaviour of the tried and tested mahogany/maple combination and provide an incomparably comfortable playing feel. The two wide cuts provide easy access to the highest fingerboard positions.
