Up for sale, a 2015 FGN History Dignity TH-LC electric guitar in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and factory paperwork. Crafted exclusively for the Japanese market at the renowned Fujigen Gakki factory, this History Dignity TH-LC is a top-notch take on the classic LP Custom platform. The guitar is constructed with American pioneer-era old growth “Heritage Wood” salvaged from the bottom of lakes, offering unmatched integrity and tone. With a solid, non-weight relieved mahogany body, carved maple cap, ebony fretboard, and stock pair of hot ceramic magnet humbuckers, all of the essential ingredients are in place. Coil splitting is available for either pickup via push/pull Tone controls, presenting a versatile sonic palette, from hot high-gain heaven to focused single coil snap. The guitar weighs 9lbs 3oz, yielding singing sustain with a present, bold acoustic voice. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this TH-LC features low action, solid intonation, and fresh 10-46 strings.

The mahogany neck has a slender C-shaped profile carve that fills the palm comfortably, firmly in the "60s" camp and measuring .810” deep at the 1st fret and .950” at the 12th. The bound ebony fretboard features block inlay and History’s unique Circle Fretting System with pristine medium jumbo fretwire. The fretwire is imperceptibly curved, installed so that each string and fret intersect at right angles to minimize the contact surface, yielding more accurate pitch, cleaner longer sustaining notes, and truer harmonics. The guitar plays effortlessly in every register up the straight neck with an optimally adjusted truss rod. The guitar conforms to specs familiar to any Gibson fan with a 24 3/4" scale length, and a carved bone nut that measures 1 11/16" in width. The bound headstock features History and Dignity abalone inlays, and the gold Gotoh Rotomatic-style tuners turn smoothly and hold pitch well with gleaming gold plating.

On the body, all of the electronics work as they should with a three-way pickup selector toggle and individual Volume and push/pull Tone controls for each pickup, offering individual coil taps for each humbucker. The stock humbuckers feature braided leads, wired to USA-made CTS volume pots and Sprague orange drop capacitors. The gold hardware shows light patina through the plating on the pickup covers, and plastic parts include the original quartet of black speed knobs and black three-ply pickguard. The clear protective factory film is even still intact over the rear control cavity and switch covers, a testament to the limited use this guitar has seen since new. Cosmetic wear on the deep Wine Red gloss nitro lacquer finish is limited to some very fine finish scratches in the clear coat of the gloss on the body, and a bit of faint buckle worming at the bass-side waist on the back. The neck profile sports a flawless gloss lacquer finish.

The original hardshell case and paperwork is included.
