Fujigen FGN NST-10R AL Vintage White & New Hard Case




£659.00




JAPAN IMPORT



The FGN range of guitars are all built at the famous Fujigen-Gakki facility in Nagano, Japan along with History & Cool Z guitars. Fujigen has also made guitars for Fender Japan, Orville, Greco, Yamaha Japan etc etc and are generally thought to be one of the best guitar makers in Japan


One of their most popular ranges are called the "Neo-Classic" of which this is one. They are copies of classic guitar designs (Strats, Teles, Les Pauls) which have had a few modern tweaks such as compound radius fretboards with the CFS fretting system for improved intonation. Locking tuners by GOTOH. Modern 2 point tremolo system on the Stratocasters along with sensible tone controlling for the bridge pickup & a lovely satin finish on the back of the neck & trussrod adjustment with good access at the headstock



The FGN NST-10R AL Stratocaster is a "Neo Classic" model and a beautifully made Japanese guitar with a solid Alder body & it also has a compound radius on the fretboard and a nice thicker "C" shape which is lovely to play. Fujigen make a lovely neck which also has a satin finish to the main part of the neck but the headstock is glossed (see photos).

As stated many times, due to courier damage, all my guitars are shipped in hard cases (usually new) this one being a plain black one. I do have a tweed option and these are a little dearer (Extra £12). If you prefer that, please email me for details. If you are collecting, I'm happy to knock off the price of the case (About £30) & I may even have an old gig bag you can have to take it away in


So to sum up, an excellent guitar from Fujigen Japan. This model is impossible to find here in the UK unless you import it. Why not play something that's just a little bit different? 


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
