All FGN guitars are beautifully built, and play as well as you’d hope, considering their provenance. 

Another Expert feature is the Compound Radius Fingerboard, which gradually increased fingerboard's radius over its length. This achieves a good balance between chords on the lower frets and bending on the higher ones. Common to all FGN guitars is the Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.). Slightly curved frets are mounted so as to ensure that each string and fret intersects at right angles, minimising the contact surface. The result is accurate pitch, cleaner, longer sustain and true harmonics.

Other Expert features include the Z Axis Deep Joint, which sets the neck about 1mm deeper than conventional electric guitars. This reduces the distance between the strings and the body top without forcibly lowering the string height. Contoured body back. Vintage style GOTOH tuners.
