Fujigen FGN NCST M10 R Neo Classic Stratocaster 3TS (M Scale) MIJ 2011 & New Hard Case
£649.00 + shipping
Here's another lovely guitar built at the Fujigen factory in Japan. The Neo Classic range are really highly regarded & once again, not so easy to find in the UK now they have been discontinued although there are one or two FGN stockists, I believe. I they're great because they take the original Strat idea but then put a few modern twists like Fujigen's "circle fretting system" for improved intonation, a compound radius fretboard, two point tremolo bridge for more stability, satin finish on the neck, locking tuners, S/S/S FGN 63-VS HOT pickups All in all a really great Strat.
This particular model is slightly different to a regular Strat as it has the slightly shorter "M" scale. The scale length is the same as a Les Paul at 24.75" instead of the usual 25.5" so it is not as short as a Mustang at 24" and sits nicely in the middle. I find it extremely comfortable to play as I have smaller hands. Also bends are easier too.
This particular guitar is around 11 years old and has a few scratches & some very minor dents (see pics) but overall is in very good condition. When the guitar came in, it was lacking its tremolo arm. I have replaced this from stock but I only had a white switch tip. I have ordered a creme one to match the rest of the switches & knobs. The neck is straight and the frets are sound with no indents. It's an excellent player.

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 £50 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
