I say:

Reputedly released as a 30 year anniversary model of the FG180, these were built in the late 1990’s (I purchased this from new in 1998), this tribute to the FG180 was supposedly limited to a run of just 30 guitars!

It’s a great acoustic, sonically very bright with a clear treble and tight low end.

Some muppet damaged the neck for me by banging it repeatedly against a table – hence the rather unsightly marks on the back of the neck – but at least you can’t feel the dinks now!

The picture with two guitars on it are the FG30Ltd with my 1970’s original FG180!
