Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.)
Slightly curved frets are mounted as each string and fret intersect at right angles to minimize the contact surface.
You can obtain accurate pitch, cleaner longer sustain and true harmonics.
*The frets we use aren't special. You can ask your nearest repair shop to hit them from the edge of the fingerboard when refret.
Z Axis Deep Joint
By setting neck about 1mm deeper than conventional electric guitars, we succeed to reduce the distance between the strings and the body top without forcibly lowering the strings height.
Compound Radius Fingerboard
Gradually increased fingerboard's radius achieves a good balance between chords grip on the lower frets and bending on the higher ones.
Expert Fret Edge
Finely finished fret and FUJIGEN craftsman's handmade fret edge contributes to much smoother fingering.
Moonsault Heel Cutaway Joint
About 5mm thinner joint part of body back allows you to access higher frets easily.
Double Tricky Switch
Direct Output SW and Coil Tap SW both for rear PU inspire your music.

Richards Guitars ethos is to only supply guitars that are truly outstanding. Not sold on marketing and hype but our belief that the guitars represent the best within their category. No brand represents this better than FGN
FGN (Fujigen) have a long illustrrious history in the World of Guitars.
It was Fujigen that produced Fenders highest quality strats in the 80s that were demonstrated to be better quality than the American made guitars!
Fujigen are considered the pinnacle of Japanese guitar production and responsible for the badge MIJ (MADE IN JAPAN) that you often see thrown around on forums and the like. The MIJ badge is considered a badge of quality and extreme quality - but it is actually the FGN factory that is responsible for this honor!
In 2019 FGN came to the UK through a highly pro-active distributor. We jumped on the opportunity to get involved and haven't stopped being completely bemused by the almost impossible quality levels we have experienced.
Richard works hand in hand with the UK importers and is ready to help you with any of your FGN related questions.
