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).

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)

Scale: 25.5″ (658mm)
Bridge: FGN FB-S05
Neck: Hard Maple w. Soft U-Shape

Review: Fender American Standard Stratocaster Shawbucker

Have Guitar presents a review of the Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS electric guitar! This Stratocaster comes with a HSS (Humbucket-Singlecoil-Singlecoil) configuration, where the humbucker is actually a Shawbucker (more about that further down) and the singlecoils are Custom Shop Fat ’50s. The color is Bordeaux metallic and this guitar is manufactured in 2014. The HSS setup on this strat really provides a wide range of tonal options, as I will try to show you in this video.

So, in this review of the Fender Stratocaster you will get good look at the guitar in splendid 4K footage, lotsa sound examples ranging from clean to high gain with all the pickups of the guitar and of course my opinions of the Stratocaster.

The Shawbucker was designed by Tim Shaw, employed at Fender and a well-known pickup guru. The Shawbucker pickup is inspired by the original PAF pickups and, according to me, it has like both humbucker and singlecoil qualities. I love the sound of it and of course you will get several sound examples in this video!
