FGN Guitars: Unveiling Japan's Best-Kept Secret in Guitar Craftsmanship

FGN are a brand of guitar that you may never have heard of before, but you may have played one before. They are a Japanese manufacturing company that has made many of the biggest brands of guitars in turn. If you can name an American guitar brand, at some point, FGN were making their axes, most likely. Now coming out into the big bad world of selling their own pieces, FGN are a great stop for guitar shoppers looking for value over brand. If you want a guitar that plays and feels like a Gibson for half the money, FGN has you covered, usually throwing in all of the additional luxuries like hard cases too.

Depending on the style of music you want to play, you will be drawn to a different part of FGN’s catalogue of guitars. Though a new producer of their in-house guitars, they have already ticked off some of the biggest shapes and bodies that you could think of. Feeling like a Telly but don't care whether it's a Fender or otherwise? FGN have you set with their Boundary line. If you want something in the jazzier family of instruments, their Masterfield collection is sure to pique your interest. And what about a Strat? Come on, we all have a soft spot for that iconic cut. For FGN, it's the Odyssey that will scratch that Stratocaster itch.

Don’t feel left out if you are a bassist either. Their line of bass guitars is blossoming into something special and is definitely worth a look at. Starting at around £500 and their top of the rangers hitting under two thousand pounds, the price points of FGN’s premium instruments are well under the competition. If you don’t care about labels and just care about quality and value for money then FGN is a must for your next guitar deep dive. Check out the range on Andertons and see what takes your fancy. You won’t regret it!
