Amazing playability and sound
Saoirse, 31.01.2019
This guitar sounds, looks and plays like a high end instrument.

Pros:
Playability: I have a few nice guitars - elite Tele, decent Strat, great Alhambra acoustic - which I love and will continue to enjoy playing - but this instrument, while admittedly not the same style, has a playability that surpasses them all - way beyond the price margin involved. The fretting is so comfortable and allows my fudge fingers to get to places up the neck accurately where I couldn't previously. The CFS fretting of the guitar may have something to do with this - I don't know - but it feels great.

Sound: I don't know what the original FGN pickups sound like live, but this pair of Seymour Duncans just sound great - from soft jazz to roaring rock - this along with the guitar's own natural sustain just makes it sing.

This will be my go-to guitar for many years - a real beauty to behold and an absolute pleasure to play.

Recommended!
Dummkopf, 18.03.2019
The FGN Masterfield Semi Special (Sagmeister Edition) is actually superbly processed. I immediately removed the pickguard because I think it looks better, but I do not think that's why the sound has changed! ;-))
The guitar was already set really well on arrival (I suspect that the guitar was reviewed and discontinued by sales before delivery).

Playability really really good!

The sound is also very balanced and good, the guitar has a great sustain!

Compared to Gibson guitars, it may be a bit "slimmer" in the bass section, but whether that's a drawback, everyone has to decide for themselves.

Like any other guitar, it has a 1-2 "spot" on the fingerboard where the sustain is not that great, but that's what trivial matters to me, and that's true of 99% of all Guitars on this planet too.
So basically nothing to moan about.

The fact that the body is a bit smaller than on a Gibson ES 335 convinced me spontaneously!

If you are completely fixated on a Gibson ES335, you should probably stick to it, for all others: just try it! Maybe it's the right guitar.
