Premium single-cut guitar
The proven combination of mahogany body with a beautifully flamed, 2.5 cm thick solid maple top and a glued mahogany neck with a long neck foot give the Expert Flame - Flamed Top an incredibly rich and cultured tone with sheer sustain.
Together with the handcrafted Japanese pickups and the high quality hardware, the Expert Flame - Flamed Top is certainly one of the best on the market for single-cut guitars.
Special FGN features
FJTP dual access tailpiece
Handcrafted FGN Custom pickups
The AlNiCo2 Humkbuckers developed by FGN are hand-wound by very experienced Japanese pickup farmers. The sound is very close to the original vintage PAF sound and delivers a very balanced sound with fast response and plenty of sustain.
Perfectly rounded frets
Rejuvenated neck foot
The softly rounded and tapered neck foot helps to play effortlessly even in the highest altitudes.
Satin neck back
Many players find a lacquered back of the neck a hindrance to smooth play, and the throat is increasingly dull in sweaty hands. Therefore, FGN has developed a special satin finish for the back of the neck, which can be extremely smooth and fluid play.
FGN has completely revised and optimized the neck-body connection for all models with a glued neck. The extended and very precise connection significantly improves the vibration characteristics.

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.
