Demo & Review With Geno McManus
Circle Fretting System
All FGN guitars and basses come with a unique Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.). It was created by FGN based on an idea to offer better pitch and articulation than conventional guitars and basses. All frets are installed on fingerboard in slightly curved shape, so that every string crosses all the frets in 90 degrees, i.e. to offer a minimum contact of string on a fret, and it makes the scale length of every string even while it actually varies on conventional fretting. The C.F.S. is a solution of fretting on a traditional guitar and bass and it offers clearer articulation and tones which give dimension when you play a cord and also cut through the mix when you play single notes.
*The frets we use aren't special. You can ask your nearest repair shop to hit them from the edge of the fingerboard when refret.
Smooth Fret Edge
FGN craftsmen are meticulous in ensuring J-Standard Smooth Fret Edges are rounded to perfection for a smooth feel on the neck, Position changes are seamless and the aesthetic is flawless.
Natural Satin Neck
Many people said the neck coated with gloss finish is very slippery and very difficult to hold it from sweating.
We finally developed FGN original natural satin finish and it can make you feel very smooth and comfortable like the illusion of touching the natural wood.
The original neck finish can improve your playability and the resonance from the neck to the body material.
