I know, though the majority of their models don't have....:D
That's true, including my personal favorite of their LP range, the NLC100-SWH. I'm a sucker for snow white on single cuts. If I was to get a FGN single cut, I'd probably get a NLC200-BK though, even if just for the woods and hardware. That ebony fingerboard, hnng!

Gorgeous axes! :thumb:
Some questions:
Are the inlays MoP/pearloid or just white plastic? I'm aware the headstock inlay has MoP and that cool looking abalone, but from the pics I've seen the fingerboard inlays look like white plastic, although I'm under the impression it must be just the pics, as it would be odd to have ebony and white plastic inlays :laugh2:.
Also is your LP an export model? It has the JDM headstock but a pointy horn.
I have so much to learn about MIJ guitars :Ohno:

I reply to myself, it's definitely either MoP or pearloid.

Thanks :thumb:

No plastic inlays....
the LP is a 'special-edition' for the German/Swiss/Austria/Benelux area
it has (thin) poly finish with a very dark rosewood fretboard
the Masterfield has laquer coating and a real ebony fretboard

if you click on the images here in this link, you can see it better,
the photo-model actually is my own guitar

It's the model? Wow, how awesome is that?
BTW I saw they have "Kalimantan Ebony" fingerboards on their NLC100s. It looks similar to rosewood.
PS: I'm going to bed so it will take some hours for me to post another reply. Good night everyone!

I hope that you get it soon and that it's awesome :).
I have one question that is bugging me after I noticed it though... Why didn't you remove the CE sticker on your Masterfield? :laugh2:

I like it when guitar manufacturers stand up for their product and use their own headstock. FGN's looks great!

I have to say I am extremely impressed with FGN. I just got my new NCLS10R AG and it is probably the best guitar I've ever bought. Willing to say better quality than the two Gibson Traditional's I owned. I'll be posting a NGD thread on it tomorrow.
