Slanted Frets?

  1. I've seen a guy playing what appears to be a guitar with slanted frets. Was I tripping or are slanted frets for real? What is the whole point?

    Very real. Novax Fanned Frets. Very usefull system, a lot easier to play than you might think. I might be putting them on my next bass, and I know Sheldon Dingwall subscribes to their atributes.
    Ask Geoff Germaine about them...

    Novax Guitars Tech Info has a lot of usefull explanations, a lot of it does with physics...
