The design for success

Frets by Sintoms’ design not only look and sound great, but they are also easy to install and comfortable to play. With their technology of ‘ringing’ and ‘frill’ they bring additional sustain to your instrument. The unique patent pending design of Zero frets, which can be placed straight against the nut of an existing guitar in just 10 minutes, is a sound example of Sintoms clever innovations.
