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).
