Description

Brand new for 2019. FGN, the Japanese guitar maker who are best known for the amazing Fender Japan guitars in the 80s and 90s and also the high end Ibanez guitars. They have now launched their own brand of superb quality guitars in the UK. The Iliad is their ‘T’ type model and this ‘J series’ model represents their mid range. The quality of this guitar far far out strips it’s very modest price point. The quality of the hardware would usually only be found on much more expensive instruments. The standard of finish is really quite something, the fret ends have been finished extremely well, a rolled edge fret board and a lovely comfy U shaped neck make for a silky smooth playing action. The body is Ash, finished in a stunning two tone sunburst. The most unique aspect of these guitars is their ‘Circular fretting system’ a system whereby there is a very very slight curve in the frets (imagine a smiley face to them as you look straight at the fret board). It is so slight you won’t notice it at first. What this does is allow for more accurate intonation, easier bends, and a better feel to the fret board. It’s something that FGN have pioneered themselves, an expensive and difficult thing to achieve on a production guitar, but they have done it seamlessly.  It’s clear that FGN have managed to apply all of their skills, knowledge and decades of experience to make these amazing guitars.
