2006 Fujigen History Z2-M Telecaster 2 Tone Sunburst & New Hard Case
This 2006 Telecaster made at the Fujigen-Gakki plant in Japan is a cracker in 2 tone sunburst. It's in overall very good condition with a few nicks around the edges but it has little wear, is all original and plays really nicely
History guitars are made by Fujigen for the Japanese distributor Shimamura. They are excellent guitars but as they are almost exclusively made for the Japanese market, you rarely see them in Europe. This is the third or fourth History guitar I have imported and they have all been superb. This is obviously a Telecaster but with a few differences. The guitar has an Alder body which has a bound edge on the top. It has a Maple neck and fretboard with Fujigen's CFS fretting with a flatter 250 mm radius and a nice "U" shape which is lovely to play. It also has a "blade" humbucker at the bridge plus a six saddle ashtray style bridge for more accurate intonation. Otherwise it's pretty much the same. Everything is made in Japan.

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?
