Buzz Feiten Buss Feiten Tuning System® (BFTS)
The Buzz Feiten Tuning System Authorized Retrofit involves two steps:

Step 1: The nut is moved closer to the first fret to eliminate sharpness at the first three frets caused by end tension. This step employs the exclusive Shelf Nut branded with the BFTS lightning-bolt logo for authenticity. Installation of this part is non-invasive to your instrument. The original nut is removed and the BFTS shelf nut is installed according to the BFTS patented formulas for your guitar based on its scale length, string gauge and fret width.

Step 2: Your guitar is intonated according to the BFTS patented pitch offset formulas. This step uses the existing adjustable bridge saddles on your guitar bringing each string into pleasing intonation with every other string at every fret across the entire fingerboard.

Reith Fine Custom Guitars is an authorized retrofitter, and a licensed manufacturer of the Buzz Feiten Tuning System®
