I was very surprised to see a huge Fujigen booth at NAMM, showing their own line of "FGN" guitars. While the guitars were all very nice, this might be a BIG mistake on their part. It will surely make their OEM customers very unhappy - it is like biting the hand that feeds you. Also, making and marketing are 2 very different things. The basses were very nice -jazz types with 2 pickups. They do get my respect for changing the pickguard and control plate to look different than a Fender - something that even the high end makers don't bother to do. I have never understood this. They were all priced around $1000 MSRP. It will be interesting to see if anything develops around this.
