A fanned fret guitar has a special build that makes it more expensive than other models, but some are affordable, like this Jackson DKAF7.
Its reasonable price tag makes it a great choice for guitarists that want to find out what it’s like to play on a fanned fret. The Jackson name means it has a great metal edge.
