FGN MASTERFIELD MFA-FP
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.
5 Piece Neck Construction
We apply the 5pc neck construction for each MFA (Masterfield Full Acoustic) model. The neck of MFA-FP is sandwiched in maple and mahoganies. Both of them increase in the strength of the neck and enhances the resonance.
FGN original pickups
Designed by Fujigen R&D section and manufactured by Japanese pickup craftsmen who have long experience and great skills. It’s used classy looking FGN FMH mini humbucker for FP.
Coil Tab Switch
We can create very unique and wide variety sounds with the push/pull switch on the tone wood knob. The tone of MFA series is not only suitable for jazz, country and classic music, but also for some kinds of rock music.
FGN craftsmen are meticulous in ensuring fret edges are rounded to perfection for a super smooth feel on the neck. Position changes are seamless and the aesthetic is flawless.
