The Odyssey (OS) series is the original FGN guitar. It was designed with precision and detail stemming from a long history of guitar manufacturing experience. These guitars are relatively simple with a traditional style, yet it sports very useful and practical features for today's musicians.
Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.) - All FGN guitars and basses come with a unique Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.). It was created by FGN based on an idea to offer better pitch and articulation than conventional guitars and basses. All frets are installed on fingerboard in slightly curved shape, so that every string crosses all the frets in 90 degrees, i.e. to offer a minimum contact of string on a fret, and it makes the scale length of every string even while it actually varies on conventional fretting. 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 cord and also cut through the mix when you play single notes.
Compound radius fingerboard - The compound radius fingerboard 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.
Other Features - Black bound Imbuia veneer top on Ash body, Compound radius Rosewood fingerboard with J-Standard fret edge treatment, GOTOH vintage style Magnum Lock tuners, Smooth and stable two-pivot FGN tremolo bridge, Direct mounted Seymour Duncan chrome covered Pegasus bridge humbucker, APS-1 Alnico II Pro neck and vintage Staggered SSL-1 rwrp middle pickups offer total versatility of modern humbucker and vintage single coil sound with 5-way lever switch and a coil tap mini switch.
