If you’re accustomed to playing high end Japanese-made instruments, the likelihood is that you’ve already played an FGN (Fujigen); the company originally built its reputation as an OEM manufacturer for the world’s most respected brands. Now, with their own range of guitars, they exercise creative independence over instrument design, while maintaining their time-won attention to detail.
This Strat-style Odyssey model benefits from FGN’s unique Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.). Slightly curved frets are mounted so as to ensure that each string and fret intersects at right angles, minimising the contact surface. The result is accurate pitch, cleaner, longer sustain and true harmonics. Another unique feature - the J-Standard Fret Edge treatment - contributes to much smoother fingering. A sculpted neck heel also allows for much greater comfort when playing higher up.
Unique features and outstanding build quality are met by top-quality components. The Odyssey is fitted with Gotoh SD91-05M Magnum Lock tuners, resulting in silky smooth tuning action, superb tuning stability, and lightning fast string changes. Three Seymour Duncan Pickups have been fitted - an AlnicoII Pro APS-1 in the neck, Vintage Staggered SSL-1 rwrp in the middle, and Pegasus-TB in the bridge. 5-way switching is combined with FGN’s Coil Tap Mini Switch for a vast array of tonal options.
We’re very proud to stock these beautifully-made guitars; very few brands offer such a high level of quality for the price than FGN.
