FGN Odyssey – Boundary series – Unboxing & short demo

Unboxing by Have Guitar!

Another unboxing video!? You bet! This time it’s a guitar from a brand I have heard so much good about but never had the opportunity to try – FGN (or Fujigen) from Japan. The model is called Odyssey and comes from the Boundary series – and it’s a hardtail strat model.

In this video you’ll see the unboxing and some first time playing demos, I’m pretty sure I play even more sloppy than normal as I’m not used to this guitar. It’s quite different from my other guitars in that the neck is more U-shaped (I generally prefer C-shaped necks) and just feels like a different bird. Sure I will get used to that in due time.

Here’s the spec’s for those of you who are interested in that. A more thorough demo/review will come later, I wanna get to know the guitar good first (but I can tell you the first impression is good).

Construction: Bolt-On
Radius: 250 mm (9.85″)
Frets: 22F Medium (C.F.S)
(Circle Fretting System: Slightly curved frets are mounted so as to ensure that each string and fret intersects at right angles, minimising the contact surface. The result is accurate pitch, cleaner, longer sustain and true harmonics)
Tuners: Gotoh SD91-05M
Body: Japanese Basswood
Scale: 25.5″ (658mm)
Bridge: FGN FB-S05
Neck: Hard Maple w. Soft U-Shape
Controls: Volume, Tone, Coil Tap Mini SW, 5-Way SW
Colors: Black, Antiqe White, Cherry Sunburst, Trans Blue Sunburst

G&L ASAT Z3 – Unboxing video (Tele style electric guitar)

Unboxing by Have Guitar!

Unboxing video of a G&L ASAT Z3 (1998) in Candy Apple Red Flake equipped with Z-coil. Yeah, that’s those oddly shaped pickups – I had never seen them until I got interested in this guitar! Explained by G&L like Magnetic Field Design Z-Coil pickups designed by Leo Fender himself.

To further quote G&L Guitars webpage: “These pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end while offering a robust bottom end, all without any 60-cycle hum.” And yes, they are very quiet and you will hear that in the sound demo of this unboxing video. They are quite punchy and powerful but doesn’t work too well with the really high gain sound I have tried so far (just a few!). But they provide a very distinct sound, very clear and sweet!

So in this unboxing video I have cut down on the opening to get to point faster and as stated also provided some sound demos (close to clean and crunch). Unfortunately the guitar recieved a slight damage to the head during the transport – it’s been walsing around Europe for close to a month! – and tonight I got the word that UPS will come tomorrow to pick it up to verify this. I guess that is kinda good news but it still sucks to send away the guitar after waiting for it so long.

Well, that’s it. I hope there will be more of this G&L tele style guitar, I’m really looking forward to explore it further as it seems to have a lot to offer tonewise! Wanna see more my attics on Youtube? Subscribe! As always a grateful Thank You to all of you who do subscribe!

SCALE: 25 1/2″
PICKUPS: Leo Fender†-designed G&L MFD™ Z-Coil™ hum-cancelling

NECK WOOD: Hard-Rock Maple with Maple or Caribbean Rosewood fingerboard
NECK PROFILE: G&L Modern Classic with 9 1/2″ radius
NUT: 100% natural bone
FRETS: 22 medium jumbo, Jescar 57110 18% nickel silver
TUNING KEYS: 12:1 ratio, sealed-back

RGDIM6FM-CLF by Ibanez (unboxing video!)

Unboxing by Have Guitar

So, here an unboxing video of a guitar I never thought I would buy – the Ibanez RGDIM6FM-CLF! I’d say this is a real ‘shredder guitar’, a title I’d give any of the Ibanez RG-models. Nothing to say about them but they are just not my kind of guitars, eventhough I am sure they are all fine instruments.

Alright, so why did I buy this guitar then?! The answer is the Fishman Fluence Modern active humbuckers that comes as stock selection of this model. I’ve been glancing on these pickups for a loooong time now. Even been planning on getting a pair to install in my Schecter Custom E-1 but then I found out about this model, Thanks Dan!, and well… the rest is history as they. Bad case of GAS!

This the unboxing video but I have tossed in some sound demos as well. I can already say that this Ibanez guitar did not change my general opinion about Ibanez guitars, it’s great. Plays like butter, sounds like gold! But this is not the review video.

Just wanna say Thanks for watching my channel! If you feel like supporting me – hit that subscribe button! I am eternally grateful for every subscriber I get, so a Big Thanks goes out to all of You who are subscribing!

Guitar pedals – Unboxing (Behringer FX600, TCE Forcefield & Lunastone Trueoverdrive1)

Guitar pedals – Unboxing (Behringer FX600, TCE Forcefield & Lunastone Trueoverdrive1)
A video by Have Guitar

Time for an unboxing video! Three new pedals to add to the pedal board… or shelf. Let’s be straight and clear now: no playing occurs in this video, it is only the unboxing! OK?! The playing will be coming in later review/test videos…

So, the pedals are a Behringer FX600 to start with. That’s a digital stereo multi-effects pedal that offers delay, phaser, flanger, chorus, tremolo and pitch shifter in one stomp! Then we have the TC Electronics Forcefield compressor, the largest pedal in the stomp format I have seen for a long time! And then there’s the Lunastone Trueoverdrive 1, a drive that promise a lot so let’s see if that holds for true in a later video.

There you go, that is it! Well, also sorry if the close up are a bit blurred, I’m still learning the action cam and I might have gone a bit too close for those close-ups! Anyways, hope you liked the video! Thanks to all my subscribers – you’re the best!

Gibson Gary Clark Jr. Signature SG – NGD / Unboxing

Gibson Gary Clark Jr. Signature SG – NGD / Unboxing
Unboxing video from Have Guitar

I guess it’s that time of the year when guitars comes and goes! Yep, it’s time for another unboxing video, eventhough I did not get this guitar in a box… so that’s why I added “NGD” to the title. Whats that, you say. Well, “NGD” simply means “New Gear Day” and that’s exactly what this is about.

So, I’ve been wanting a guitar with P90-pickups for a long time now. When I saw the Gibson sale that started awhile back (for the 2018 models) I saw this model for the first time; Gibson Gary Clark Jr. Signature SG – with 3 P90’s! So I got GAS immediately but then I got a couple of other guitars and was like “naw, forget that now”. Still it nagged me and then the other day, just before the sale ended I took my Godin Fishman Triple play guitar, which I hardly never play and went there. And came home with this Yellow menace.

Eventually I will make a full review video of this SG but until then this is what you get. Very much like an unboxing video and well… that’s it really.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar! If you wanna be loved like the rest of the gang who subscribes, I’d recommend you to subscribe you too! Remember, we’re all in it together!

Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019 – Unboxing

Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019 – Unboxing
A video by Have Guitar

Well, it has been awhile since I bought something new and I had kinda promised myself not to do it… and then came along the new 2019 line-up from Gibson and goodbye self control.

I do believe there are quite a few nice new models from Gibson but man… their prices has gone up! The previous Tribute models I have seen has been Les Pauls and in Sweden they have been sold for around 1000 USD. This tribute model has a list price from Gibson 1399 USD! And the High Performance series have increased as well.

But anyways, a Gibson Explorer has been on my “to-get-list” since long before I even started playing guitar and this Tribute 2019 just has a stylistically pure design that just spoke out to me. Makes it look raw and clean! Also the Dirty Finger+ pickups has some good rep around the Internets so here we go! This is only the unboxing video, although there is a small sound example included… a thorough review should be up around end October I hope.

And that’s it! Hope you will like this video and if you do – please do support my persistent crazyness by subscribing, it helps a lot! To all you subscribing already – you are the best and Thank You!

Guitar straps from P&P Music, China, AliExpress (Unboxing)

Guitar straps from P&P Music, China, AliExpress
Unboxing video from Have guitar

Alright, so here’s another one of those unboxing videos. I needed some straps as I have more guitars than straps and I got this idea that I should try ordering some from China, through AliExpress.

I can’t really tell you about the quality so far but they seem good enough at a first glance. No padding on these though and I am not sure if it’s real leather. Well, actually I doubt it, I think it is artificial leather. The real deal usually smells like leather and this does not.

So, they look good enough to me and the price is very tempting – get four for a price less than one (here in Sweden). Well, let’s be honest – a handmade real leather strap IS worth its price, but if you’re down on the economic side this seems to be a very good alternative.

I do hope you like this video and if you do – pretty please subscribe to Have Guitar! Your support is important!! A Very Big Thanks to all old and new subscriber, your support is inevaluable!
