2017 Fujigen FGN LC-10 MIJ & new Hard Case



Fujigen-Gakki build some lovely guitars. They build them & have built them for many companies like Ibanez, Orville (Gibson) Fender Japan, Yamaha etc etc but they also build their own guitars these days which are badged as FGN or History and also for distributor Shimamura they build Cool Z. You'll find examples of most of these on my website & whenever I find a good one in Japan, I can't resist them. Such is the case with this 2017 LC-10. I haven't been able to import it because it has a  Rosewood  fretboard but that restriction is coming to an end now

The LC-10 is Fujigens take on a Les Paul Custom. It's a superb guitar and will match a lot of guitars costing double and more. This example is in pretty much perfect condition with no bumps, bruises, scrapes, wear or modifications. Here are the specifications from FGN. This has been translated from German so it reads a bit strangely. Apologies!

FGN LC-10 Traditional Custom Single Cut

The authentic FGN pedant to the LC single cut custom guitar with lots of vintage vibes for the classic rock sound of the 1960s and 1970s.

FGN consciously builds this model according to established tradition with solid 2-piece mahogany body without weight reduction to guarantee a powerful and punchy sound.

The long neck foot (Logn Neck Tenon) and the improved vibration transmission gives the guitar an extra portion of sustain.

The sound of the FGN humbucker is very similar to the original vintage PAF sound.

Of course, the LC10 comes in classic custom tradition with 2-piece mahogany body with Maple top.

This model retailed at around £1100 & was supplied with a gigbag. You will find a few listed on "Reverb" for that kind of price. This guitar has barely been used and works out around £250 cheaper

Please also check out the awesome demo video at the foot of the page. Recorded by session guitarist & friend Rob Burrows, it gives a quick taster of how this guitar can sound

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit.  Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Or, you can buy easily and safely using the paypal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
