FGN MASTERFIELD MSA-HP / SPECIAL FEATURES

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.

Body

Relatively small 15"body and unique semi hollow construction which is built with a scooped-out solid mahogany rim and inner block sandwiched with Curly Maple top and back offers unique balance of airy acoustic and solid electric sound

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 Alnico 3 pole pieces which is excellent with semi hollow guitars. The sound character is very clean and also good and very useful for making crunch and rock’n roll sounds, as the pickups sounds and constructions are directly transmitted into the body materials.

Fret Edge

FGN craftsmen are meticulous in ensuring fret edges are rounded to perfection for a smooth feel on the neck. Position changes are seamless and the aesthetic is flawless.
