So I was at a local store this weekend and they had a fanned fret guitar. I asked to play it and got a green light! I looked at it with a small amount of inner fear, hoping not to suck trying to play this thing. To my surprise it was very easy to adapt to it. Chords and scales with a fair amount of ease. The only thing that stood out was a fair amount of reach with scales on the sixth string and my pinky. I would be open to getting one of these if I found a deal on a PRS.
