Well, it might not hurt for me to ask you folks even though it's about my History singlecut, also made by Fujigen. I want to change my wiring harness because I like 50s wiring. I discovered that it has a metal plate in the bottom for grounding. I have one luthier telling me that it has to have long shaft pots due to the plate and another telling me no way. Has anyone pulled a harness out of their FGN? If so, do you remember if it had long or short shaft pots?

Haven't changed them by now, though you can't get wrong when using long shaft pots, IMO

Long shaft pots can almost always be adjusted to arrive at the correct height while short shaft pots either fit or they don't. I've always been able to use long shaft -- short shaft...not always.

Good point. Not sure they will reach the US either or if I have to try to get one from Japan if I decide I want one.

Jeez, I wish there were more FGN guitars in the used market. I never, ever encounter one of the great, more recent FGNs. I have an old FGV Orville that is fantastic. I would love to see and play one of the Expert Flame models.

and a really nice variation of a modern Single Cut
