Hi jagger, welcome to the forum :)

I split your post off from the Guitar Serial Number thread so that it stands out a little more.

I had not heard of the FJ651 myself so did a little bit of digging and specs I found were as follows:

Top - Spruce
Back & Sides- Agathis
Neck - African Mahogany
Fingerboard - Indian Rosewood
Bridge - Indian Rosewood
Tuners - Diecast
Production of the FJ651 began in 1994 and ended in 1997

From what I have seen it's a really nice looking guitar. Maybe post a few pics?

Yep this old forum malarkey can be a little tricky at times ;)

It's actually quite easy to post photos here though.

When you click 'reply' to a post it normally defaults to the 'quick reply' window as below:
Screen Shot 2017-07-12 at 13.21.36.png
But what you need to do is click on the 'Full Editor" button as that gives you the options to add 'attachments' (photos and files) as well as a few other enhancements to the standard reply.

So once your in the 'Full Editor' window you can add photos in two different ways. You can either drag the photo from your desktop into the message window at which point you will notice just below the window the attachments tab has opened. You will see the file name and a button named 'Place inline' All you do is click your mouse pointer in the place in your message where you want the photo to appear and then click on that 'place inline' button.

That's it. Now you can either 'preview' before posting or just click on submit and your photo will appear on the forum :)

The other way is similar except you don't drag the photo from your desktop. Instead look below the text window and you will see a couple of tabs as in the image below :
Screen Shot 2017-07-12 at 13.18.37.png
Click the 'add files' button, browse to where the file is on your computer and select it. That uploads it. Then use the 'Place inline' button as before.

Hope that helps but failing that...it's over to Facebook :)

Found a couple of pics. The second one is an Electro Acoustic which I don't think was standard at least not on release back in 1994?

Well I would definitely not go for any type of piezo under saddle type pickup. They work of course but the result is not really what your acoustic sounds like when played unplugged. I find they always add a sort of unrealistic presence to things. So go for a sound hole mounted jobby. There are a few to choose from but I would be looking at Shadow or LR Baggs neither of which are particularly cheap but they do sound fantastic. I have a Shadow nanoMAG fitted at the base of the neck on my Epiphone EJ-200SCE which sounds great :)

As for acoustic amps personally I wouldn't go for a dedicated acoustic amp. I would choose a Line 6 Spider V series the cheapest of which is the V30 at just £139.00. The great thing about these amps is that they are designed with full range speakers so they will work just as well with acoustic guitar as they do with electric.

I'm sure there will be plenty of other suggestions though :)

Saul thanks a million for all your advice your a gent not many of us left.
i was just curious to be honest ,
my dream guitar was always the Martin hd28 but when i played it in my local music store the LL16 blew it away at least to my ear ,anyway i will never afford to buy another acoustic unless i win the lottery but im a happy camper with the axe i have.
thanks again for the advice and help.

cheers
