2015 Fujigen FGN NTL-200 Ash Telecaster & new Hard Case

£769.00 + shipping

 

 

 

JAPAN IMPORT

 


This is the third NTL-200 I have imported and it's every bit as good as the first. It is from the Neo Classic Series which sadly, is no longer made. With its double bound Ash body and Maple/Rosewood neck, it has the usual high quality that comes from Fujigen. This model is loaded with USA Seymour Duncan pickups. The tasty humbucker at the neck has coil splitting by use of the 4 position pickup selector. A GOTOH bridge and tuners.


General condition is excellent for the year. A few light surface scratches but no dings or dents. To  me, this really is a guitarist's guitar. Ash body, great pickups, satin neck, Stays in tune perfectly, low action & great looks. Plays superbly.

SPECIAL FEATURES

Circle Fretting System

 

All FGN guitars and basses come with a unique Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.). It was created by FGN based on an idea to offer better pitch and articulation than conventional guitars and basses. All frets are installed on fingerboard in slightly curved shape, so that every string crosses all the frets in 90 degrees, i.e. to offer a minimum contact of string on a fret, and it makes the scale length of every string even while it actually varies on conventional fretting. The C.F.S. is a solution of fretting on a traditional guitar and bass and it offers clearer articulation and tones which give dimension when you play a cord and also cut through the mix when you play single notes.

*The frets we use aren't special. You can ask your nearest repair shop to hit them from the edge of the fingerboard when refret.

Compound Radius Fretboard

 

FGN employs a specific Compound Radius ratio on the fingerboard, representing advanced fingerboard technology. The neck radius gradually increases over the fingerboard's length, starting out rounded near the headstock and flattening out toward the neck joint. A diameter of 250mm was selected for the radius at the nut for optimal comfort and grip for chords. A 350mm radius at the heel has proven to be ideal in eliminating any unwanted buzz of string bending that may be caused by over-tightened fingerboard radius traditionally countered by high string action. The Compound Radius affords comfortable and easy bends even with string action below 1.9mm and ensures smooth fingering when playing solo passages high on the neck, while allowing for much easier chord playing at lower frets.

 

 

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. If you are collecting, I'm happy to knock off the price of the case (About £50) & 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 not so easy (or as cheap) to find here in the UK unless you import it. Why not play something that's just a little bit different?
