2009 Fujigen Japan CoolZ ZLJ-1 Les Paul Special TV Yellow & new hard case. You may not have heard of "CoolZ" but you have probably heard of the factory where it was made. Fujigen-Gakki is one of the best known guitar makers in Japan & over the years has been responsible for nearly all of the finest Japanese made guitars. Ibanez, Orville, Fender, Greco, Epiphone Elite, Yamaha & many others were/are all made at Fujigen. Fujigen make their own FGN brand and also make guitars for Japanese distributors Shimamura & these are the History & CoolZ brands.
You don't see them outside of Japan as they are for the domestic market only but they are built to Fujigen's usual high standard. I've had a few CoolZ guitars on the website over the years but this is the first Les Paul Special & I have to say, I'm impressed. This guitar has a solid Mahogany body and neck & Rosewood fingerboard. The finish is a very popular TV Yellow & the guitar has GOTOH SD-90 tuners, a GOTOH bridge & a bone nut. The guitar also features Fujigen's own CFS "Circular Fretting System" which improves intonation & playability.
It really is a well made guitar. The P-90 pickups are branded as "PS-3" which I assume are Fujigen's own. They work well & the guitar has a really good sound. There are a few demos on YouTube. The overall condition is excellent for a 13 year old guitar with almost no scratches or dents & none that would show in the photographs.
The guitar plays really well. Straight neck, low action and good pickups. Overall, for a Japanese built guitar at this price with a fitted hard case this is amazing value.
