Fanned fret guitars are guitars characterized by a multi-scale fingerboard and “off set” frets, that is, frets that extend from the neck of the guitar at an angle. This is in contrast to the standard perpendicular arrangement of other guitars. Proponents of this style of guitar claim benefits including comfort, better ergonomics, better intonation, and better control of the tension of the strings across the fretboard.
