    Hey,

    I was scrolling through the forum, and could not find any HNGD for any FGN guitars!

    Are we not liking them??

    Cheers

    Paruwi, what took you so long to reply to this thread? :laugh2:


    Kaputme, I feel like paruwi may be the world's foremost proponent of FGN. I'd never heard of them until seeing his reviews.

    Great guitars, great value, great quality and a great brand. Nice people, too. They'll always reply to any questions and give a helpful response.
    Very underrated brand.

    It would be a nice option for them to be available in the USA. They look amazing.

    I did not know this. Thought they had to be shipped from the land of the rising sun.

    No, there is at least one Reverb seller on new ones and I'm pretty sure there are sellers on ebay, too.

    I have a History made by Fujigen. It's a great guitar so I wouldn't hesitate to buy an FGN.

    Count me as another FGN/Fujigen lover. I don't have as many as Peter. I tried to keep up with him, but he left me in the dust. Plus, I like a little color in my life.

    History brand guitars are very similar, built by Fujigen for the Shimamura music store in Japan. I tend to lump them together.

    I've heard FGN are made in China. True?

    I‘m sure these are great guitars, but I am just one of these loyal brand nerds. Love it when the headstock says Gibson or Fender.

    I once had an ESP „Les Paul“ it was a great guitar, no flaws, excellent quality, great sound, but it just didn’t work for me.

    Enjoy your FGNs, I‘m sure they are just as good as the real thing.
