What are some Key features of FGN Guitars?
All FGN guitars and basses come with a unique Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.). It was created by them based on an idea to offer better pitch and articulation than conventional guitars and basses. All frets are installed on a fingerboard in slightly curved shapes, so that every string crosses all the frets at 90 degrees, i.e. to offer minimum contact of a string on a fret, and it makes the scale length of every string even, while it actually varies on conventional Straight fretting. (See Fig. 1). The C.F.S. is a solution of fretting on a traditional guitar and bass and it offers clearer articulation and tones which give dimension when you play a chord and also cuts through the mix when you play single notes
In addition to our unmatched C.F.S frets we use a compound radius fingerboard that has smaller (rounder) radius towards nut while larger (flatter) radius towards neck end i.e. similar to a shape of a cone.This allows for much easier chord playing at lower frets while having less stress, especially when bending strings at higher registers.
