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

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a rig showcase for those of you who fancy an amp that’s made for metal – it’s Deadlight Studios (former Tonehammer) PIWI Perspective! Behind that acronym hides Peavey’s Invective 120 – as Peavey themselves puts it “helping players achieve the most revered metal sounds, from woody and clean to the most extreme of high gain tones”.

I’d say you don’t have to play metal to enjoy these sweet tones / profiles but the power is right there if you need it. This pack is in my ears very well profiled by Deadlight Studios, it was a joy to play through it while I did this video! So from my side it’s both thumbs up!! If you want more info on the amp see the links below as well as a link to the profile pack at Deadlight Studios. Go get it now, if you like what you hear!

So, thanks for watching Have Guitar! If you’re up for it, why don’t you subscribe? Doesn’t cost you a dime but it gives me the support I need to keep it up… A Big Fat Frantic Thanks goes out to all you who sub’s!!!
