Fujigen.
I don't like Terada's solid bodies.

Nice guitars indeed!

Can you tell me something about the neck shapes please? First of all, are they both the same? Secondly, are the necks thicker or the same as a 59R?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Joop

I'll reply....... I have a 1994 as well....... the necks are on the 60's slim side.... I find the guitar very light..... mine is 8.5lbs....... and it is a rock and roll... machine...

I had a '93 Fujigen with a big fat neck. That is the one sale-regret I really have.
