The FGX has louder and stronger sound in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the R&D Division. ’s engineers have achieved this sound by utilizing analysis and simulation to arrive at the best bracing design without depending on tradition or guesswork. This analysis led to the development of the new scalloped bracing pattern, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the FGX has to offer.
System66 features an under-saddle piezo pickup developed by . Controls include a 3-band EQ, an adjustable mid-range frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum sound tailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.

I bought this guitar to use as a "beater," a guitar I could leave sitting around the house to pick up and play whenever. This guitar looks and plays better than I expected, so I purchased a hard case for it instead of just leaving it sitting out. I have a 800 buck+ Takamine acoustic/electric that isn't as nice as this guitar. This guitar has a full, rich sound and plays great on the upper frets (unlike my Takamine). I would gladly trade in my 800 buck Takamine for another of these guitars at half the price.
