The Buzz Feiten Tuning System:
North Coast Guitar Company is a certified Buzz Feiten Tuning System Retrofitter.
The Buzz Feiten Tuning System (BFTS) starts by installing a BFTS Shelf Nut, which moves the strings closer to the first fret a precise distance based on the scale length, fret width and string gauge of your guitar. This eliminates sharp notes at the first three frets. Then your guitar’s bridge is adjusted according to BFTS Pitch Offsets, creating balanced intonation over the entire fingerboard, so your guitar plays in tune from the first fret to the last.
No Special Tuning Required
Because your original bridge is used, your action and tone are unchanged. You can tune by ear or with ANY electronic tuner of your choice. Korg and Peterson Tuners with BFTS Mode offer fast and accurate tuning. BFTS also works perfectly with alternate tunings, capos, zero frets, locking or roller nuts and tremolo systems.
