What George says:

"When I first began to design our multiple scale (fan fret) guitars, logically I thought it would increase the depth of bass response - similar to the way a grand piano does due partly to the longer string length. Some folk had mentioned to me that the tuning would be more accurate. I had trouble seeing how that could be and when the time came to test it out ….. the tuning accuracy was similar to a normal single scale guitar but the bass response was indeed deeper. Then of course logically I began to think a Wee Lowden with the smaller soundbox (already voiced for extra bass) would be even better as a fan fret and the bass would be even deeper than our single scale Wee Lowden. It has turned out to be true - not a day and night difference - more subtle but definitely there!"
