    Wanted to take a second to show off my new guitar. I'm generally a single-coil/long scale length kind of guy, so this guitar is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I got a deal I liked and the guitar was local. I tried it out, loved it, and am excited to finally have a good lp-style guitar.

    It's an FGN, which is the relatively new house brand of the Fujigen manufacturing company. I probably don't need to tell you guys about Fujigen... Some of my favorite details are the flame maple binding on the neck as well as the thick (5/8") maple cap on top. The inlay work is fancier than I generally like, but it's extremely nice as well. The neck has a matte finish on the playing area that looks a little funky but feels amazing. Also, the This particular guitar has had seymour duncan pearly gates pickups dropped in and I'm really liking them as well. Enough talk, here are some pics.

    Nice one! I recently got an FGN Iliad (tele style with HS pickups) directly from Japan. Excellent fretwork in particular.

    Thanks guys! I bet the Iliad is great. I've already got my eyes on an Odyssey.

    Is the matte finish on the neck stock? Maybe someone just used steel wool on it.

    No, it's stock. It stops and starts in very clean, straight lines. It's also listed as a feature on the FGN guitars website.
