Strong Projection and Clear Top End FG9 delivers the outstanding projection characteristic of dreadnought-style instruments, while at the same time providing exceptional clarity and detailed articulation—a unique combination especially suited for accompanying vocals.
Adirondack Spruce Tops with Tapered Edges FG9 models feature Adirondack spruce top boards with tapered edges, providing structural strength while also allowing the body to vibrate more efficiently—a combination that contributes to both power and sensitivity.
Bolt-On Neck Joint The neck has a new structural design that combines bolt-on and glued construction to increase body vibration and improve maintainability. Neck and body joints are finished and adjusted with high precision.
Elegant While Understated Japanese Aesthetic The distinctive fingerboard inlays resemble traditional Japanese Kumiki woodworking, while the rope-shaped inlay and purfling on the rosette is a motif that is deeply rooted in Japanese culture.
Rope pattern inlay and purfling on the rosette is a motif that is deeply rooted in Japanese culture.
Scientific Approach Integrated with Luthier Techniques When designing the FG9, we employed cutting-edge acoustic measurement and 3D structural measurement processes to more fully understand how physical structure affects acoustic characteristics, and repeated prototypes were built by our custom shop’s skilled luthiers.
