The Fame Forum IV Classic Sunburst Dark Back Highgloss 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. At the amp, a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB humbucker at the bridge and a Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz at 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 ultimately completes the Fame Forum IV Classic. Accordingly, a Tune-O-Matic bridge and a stopbar tailpiece sit on the body, while Schaller/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. Robust premium tuners stand for durability and tuning stability, while a classic combination of Tune-o-Matic and Stopbar ultimately provides a resonant connection to the body and adjustment options for intonation and string action.
Strong mahogany body & curly maple top
The classic recipe of the Forum IV Classic includes a two-piece body made of khaya mahogany without weight relief. This has a strong profile and is glued to the Sapelli neck with a long neck foot, which is bombproof and rich in sustain. Last but not least, the electric guitar has a two-piece curly maple top with a unique flame, which makes every Fame Forum unique.
