The Frank Gambale FG2 guitar has a body made from alder, which is a high-quality tone wood used by many manufacturers because of its relative light weight and fine resonating tone. It's finished in Frank Gambale Pearl Yellow, which is the only finish option. All of the Custom Shop's neck and fingerboard woods undergo a long conditioning process in our de-humidification chambers to remove any stress in the wood and prevent future warping or twisting, and our woods are carefully hand-selected and inspected to ensure your new FG2 will be free of natural defects.
The FG2 features a standard 25.5" scale ebony fingerboard with Frank's signature first-fret inlay in mother-or-pearl, combined with MOP dots. It has a 14" radius and 22 regular-size nickel frets. The "Rapid Play" low action neck assures effortless playability throughout the entire fingerboard, while the deep lower cutaway and sloped neck heel allows easy access all the way up to the 22nd fret. The fully-adjustable dual action truss rod allows you to set the action exactly the way you want it, and dual carbon-fiber reinforcing rods make the neck remarkably stable. Our fully-computerized CNC machinery guarantees a neck pocket which the bolt-on neck will fit perfectly in to, increasing stability and sustain.
A fully-adjustable Gotoh 510 tremolo is standard, along with Kiesel Guitars locking tuners, which have an ultra-fine 19:1 tuning ratio. Standard hardware is black.
Kiesel Guitars also offers the Frank Gambale FG1, which is Frank's signature semi-hollow carved top guitar that debuted in 2011. The FG1 can be outfitted with many Custom Shop options, including top woods, finishes, fingerboard woods and much more.
