Welcome to FM Guitars!


Your home for ergonomic guitars and basses!


We make single fretboard guitars, as well as double fretboard 12, 14, and 16-string Guitars and Basses that are for any "standard technique" players who also want to extend their tapping/fingerstyle techniques.


Having two identical fretboards opens up thousands of new possibilities for chords, chord-melody, double melody, power chords, shred/leads ideas, and all kinds of other techniques! In other words, it's an extension of the electric guitar, simulating two instruments as one.


Our Esphera model comes as a single fretboard guitar as well.  


We are located in Los Angeles, California.

Every crazy guitar idea I have is possible because of my FM 9+7 guitar. The light weight and accessiblity of it makes it easy to play as a "normal" guitar but also to make chord voicings and techniques I would have never thought of on a single fretboard guitar. Playing double harmonies has been my most challenging but most fun challenge with this guitar. I absolutely love how rewarding it is to play this guitar (extra points for nice colors and flashiness!)

It is an absolute privilege to work with the FM family! Not only is it amazing to play the Esphera guitar; an incredible instrument that’s responsive, lightweight, compact with a great neck profile. But the actual company is like a huge family!


Nothing better than to play amazing instruments with a great crew of incredible musicians and human beings!

FM guitars has enabled me to do things that I didn’t even know were possible on bass. Felix has taken the design of a double neck bass and perfected it for optimal playability and accessibility. If you’re a bassist looking to challenge yourself and vastly expand your sound palate, look no further than FM guitars!

Playing a FM Esphera guitar became an open road for the number of tones that you can get with this instrument. They’re are truly guitars from the future.

FM Guitars are simply beyond. They are a gateway to creating your most infinite and inspiring musical compositions. I’ve always wanted to learn to play a tapping guitar but there weren’t many options avaible. When I received my FMS-12 string just a few short days later,  I was up and running tapping complex patterns, exotic chords and melodys with its conventional tuning.

I can say that these are the best stock pickups I've tried on a guitar. I find myself picking up the guitar very frequently solely because I enjoy how responsive/sensitive the pickups are to fast picking. 

Love the sound, plus it's very lightweight!

A whole new world available. When I firstly saw FM guitars, I imagined what it would be like to play with them and the number of new techniques and harmonies available. Now as an FM artist I couldn't be more delighted with the inspiration it generates to me every time I play it. I’ve always loved the tapping style, and that’s the FM guitars territory.

FM Guitars, showed up in a seriously good time for me, the idea of being able to play two guitars at once was only a dream. When mine arrived musical avenues had become available that I could not portray before. Truly top notch work, and I am grateful for all that comes from having mine!

I’ve been playing guitar with tapping elements intertwined to my playing for a very long time. After receiving my fm 16 string guitar it has unlocked a whole new world of possibilities everything that seemed impossible on a single fretboard was out the door. A superb tool that comes with endless amounts of inspiration.

"I have been in awe with these guitars. Lightweight, pickups are amazing, and especially work so well for the 8 string! Beautiful on the high notes, and powerful but bring on the lows. The style and sound, are a work of art."

The quality and precision of its pieces are inexplicable, you will only understand when you have an FM in your hands and you can appreciate all the work and dedication. The sound of its pickups and the ease it gives you to execute quickly and accurately are worthy of admiration, I am happy to be part of the FM family and represent them with my music for future generations of guitarists.

"Using both of my hands on a bass like this is challenging, yet rewarding. Playing my FM bass feels like I'm unlocking ancient techniques or primal instincts. The best part about FM Guitars is being a part of something so special. The combination of unique instruments and unique musicians makes for a phenomenon unlike any other, and I am proud to be a part of it."

FM Guitars makes instruments unique to any other on the market that feel natural to learn when transitioning from playing a traditional electric guitar or bass. Playing a 12-16 string guitar or an 8-12 string bass opens up many new possibilities, including removing some physical restraints in playing and having access to separate pickups for individual fretboard clarity compared to playing a standard electric guitar or bass. FM Guitars will work with you to create the instrument you want, which will sound, feel, and look fantastic.
