2016 Fujigen FGN NTL-200 Telecaster 2 Tone Sunburst & New Hard Case
This FGN "Neo Classic" Telecaster is a beauty and I believe "domestic market" only guitar and can't be bought outside of Japan. The only way to get one is to import it. Made in 2016 it has been little used and is pretty much unmarked. I really like the two colour sunburst finish & body binding on the solid Alder body. The guitar is also equipped with a pair of USA Seymour Duncan pickups. An SH-4n humbucker at the neck and an STL-1 at the bridge. A four way switch also gives a coil splitting option with the neck humbucker
The guitar plays beautifully as you would expect & the pickups are bright & responsive. I particularly like the soft "V" profile neck.
The Neo Classic range is Fujigen's take on classic designs like Strats, Teles, SG's & Les Pauls etc but with a few modern twists like a flatter compound radius fretboard, Fujigen's "Circle Fretting System" for improved intonation, and a satin finished neck.

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?
