Established inthe company is famous for the instruments it makes for companies such as Ibanez and Fender, and their quality has been held up as a benchmark for decades.
Fujigen is now making guitars under the name FGN Guitarsand while they bare some obvious inspirations, the company is not setting out to merely make exact replicas of any particular instrument. The body is basswood rather than the more traditional alderand this wood is known for its even frequency response and slightly more compressed dynamic range — both factors that make it play especially well with effect pedals.
The back of the neck features a matte finish for good shreddability. Tuners are Gotoh SGMs and the bridge is a Fujigen-original S, a vintage-style unit with six screws and a traditional screw-in bar.
All parts are manufactured in Japan.
FgN (Fujigen) Basses
Controls include a master volume and a pair of tone controls, along with a five-way pickup selector switch. Although the fret ends are a little bit sharp, the neck itself is a breeze to play. It strikes the right balance between traditional Stratocaster zing courtesy of its maple fretboard and bolt-on construction and more modern super-shred axe, thanks to its flatter fretboard radius, larger frets and slender profile.
The pickups have a warm, smokey vibe, especially with moderate overdrive. The basswood body smooths out the rough ends of the tone, making this a very recording-friendly guitar, while the natural compression effect will also make it sit quite nicely in a stage mix. The middle unit is also very impressive, combing some of the clarity of the bridge with the smoothness of the neck unit. In all settings the guitar is quite expressive in sound, and addictive in playability.
It uses an established form as a basis but it also tries something new, offering modern playability and vintage tone in a well-constructed, great-sounding and incredibly playable form. Thanks to Music Connection for loaning the guitar for this review. Primary Menu Skip to content.

At FUJIGEN we started with classical guitars manufacturing, but soon shifted to electric guitars to meet a quickly growing demand by overseas business partners, especially in the USA, where electric guitars were becoming very popular. Classical guitars remained our main product in the domestic Japanese market. In the early 80's many famous brands had their production outsourced to so called OEMs Original Equipment Manufactures.
Our monthly output raised up to electric guitars. This was world leadership. Inwe had reached out goal. As an OEM for top brands, we intend to tighten our position in terms of quality over quantity as a reliable partner. In order to attain a certain independence and to realize our own design ideas, we have launched our brand FGN for overseas market.

May Chikuma factory opened and started to manufacture high-grade classic guitars.Fujigen has built guitars for some of the biggest names in the guitar world for decades. Or the beautiful Fender Japan instruments. The much-loved Heartfield Talon. But the company makes its own instruments too. The body is basswood with a beautifully bookmatched flame maple laminated top and a three-ply pearloid pickguard that stops a little short of the treble-side cutaway, while lets you see more of the finish.
With this system the frets are very slightly curved like a smile, which allows for the same distance between each fret. The result is that it improves intonation and seems very slightly easier to play too. The scale length is The pickups are a trio of FGN models: two single coils and a humbucker. Switching is standard Strat-style with the exception of a mini toggle for coil-splitting the humbucker, and there are master controls for volume and tone, rather than having two tone controls. There are all sorts of tones lurking in this guitar, from crystal clear cleans to smokey blues overdrives to raunchy 80s hard rock and beyond.
Of special note is the quality of the single coils though; when you review as many guitars as I have you get used toown-brand single coils being a little lacklustre, but FGN has voiced these pickups very carefully and they sound great on their own and really vibrant when used together.
The intonation seems nice and consistent, and the vibrato bridge operates smoothly and returns to pitch accurately.
And the whole guitar in general just feels very ergonomic and very solidly made. This is a great choice for those who want a Strat-style guitar but crave something a little different, a little more unique and a little more modern in construction and ergonomics without sacrificing classic tone.

The Gear Page. May 14, 1. Messages: 5, Hi Everyone! Has anyone ever played a fujigen guitar? They look awesome! I am curious to see what others think about these guitars. May 14, 2. Messages: 1, Haven't played a Fujigen, but you have a very cool guitar blog! Some really wild looking instruments there. May 14, 3. Thanks for the compliment. I will post more as I update my blog!

Messages: 2, I had an epiphone elitist les paul, which was made by them. It was probably the best built guitar that I have ever put my hands on.Sep 7, 1. Aug 5, Sydney, Australia. Has anyone played one of these? I did a search but didn't find much on the brand of basses, just the factory itself. They are made by the Japanese Fujigen Factory which produces guitars and basses for lots of different brands. FgN is their "house" brand, I guess you could call it. I have been looking at MIJ Fenders and I stumbled across these, judging by the pictures they seem to be of high quality.
Maybe a nice alternative? Sep 7, 2. Apr 27, Japan. Fujigen is actually the factory that manufactured the "lawsuit guitars and basses". After the manufacturing was transferred to Dyna Gakki, Fujigen continued to manufacture high-end guitars and basses. One of their flagship model is the History series.
Sep 7, 3. Sep 7, 4. Found a store that stocks them. No prices though and they don't appear to have an online store. EDIT: Looks like they do have an online store afterall.
The History line is pretty expensive! Sep 7, 5. Sep 7, 6. May 1, 7. Feb 17, Hamburg, Germany. Any other potential FGN club members here?? Here's mine next to its brother. May 2, 8. May 2, 9. Jun 16, Oxford, UK. Very swish May 2, May 28, FGN; I liked the ones I tried very much! Nov 6, Dec 21,
