"Finally, we get a lot of questions about whether you can use a capo with a fan fret guitar. The simple answer is yes! And you don't need to angle it with the fret either. Although you could... if you think it looks cool..."

I don't know if it's the mic he's using or what, but I thought the guitar sounded terrible. That's saying a lot too since he was using the 2 "pretty" chords (G and C with the droning high G and D notes on the 1st and 2nd strings) that most guitar demos use because they make almost any guitar sound good.
Based on that and the fact that it's not all that pleasing to look at, I'm out.

Fan frets are something I've only seen very recently, but I'm intrigued by them. I would need to find one to try. I'm wondering if the angle allows a little more natural fret hand wrist position, or if it actually moves the wrist position in the wrong direction? I need to find one and try it....
