Awesome. I've never seen a lot of those ideas on guitars before. I'm not in to shapes or paint jobs such as those but there was still something incredibly appealing to me about that axe.

Aside from the guitars being a little too excentric for my taste, the additions he added like the magnetic back-plates are ....ing awesome.

If he ever makes a 7, I'd jump on it. Some really cool ideas there. I think the CG-6 would lend itself well to becoming a CG-7. It lo.oks a lot like a souped-up Schecter 007, which I've always had an interest in.

As long as the price is right most of us would jump on it.

Same here, surprisingly enough. It's an original take on a classic shape. I like the CG6, as well.

And since he said in the video that they're a custom shop, they might be down to make 7s. Seems like it would be worth it to ask them when I would be able to afford it.

I really like a bunch of his ideas. The routing in the back to fit all those things is really nice, particularly the wireless unit. And the screw to lock the tremolo wherever you want is really clever, and lit some serious GAS.

In case that guy ever joins this forum and reads this... Great job man!!

Super cool guitars. I love that natural guitar in the back, and I really like the guy.

But did anyone else wince at "minor fifth?" I doubt anyone is going to be playing these guitars in Quartertone.

10-32 Guitars is the brainchild of Chaz Ginest, a 12-year veteran of pretending to be a musician, guitarist, and societally acceptable individual. Even though he has failed at all three of those things, the man can build a guitar.
The less-than-proud owner of an Electronics Engineering degree from the integrity challenged and oft-ridiculed DeVry University, he uses his technical prowess and love of the almighty riff to produce the most shred-ready axes on the planet.
8 years of on-stage frustration using the mediocre instruments available to the general public has fueled a passion for creating instruments that allow serious guitarists to perform at the peak of their abilities.
10-32 guitars are guaranteed to give you an on-stage experience more satisfying than any other instrument, and are designed to maximize your prowess as a performing artist.
The sole purpose of purchasing a new instrument is to solve problems, maximize your ability, and most of all INSPIRE creativity. Regardless of what instrument you choose, PLAY FOR BLOOD my friends.

I like him.

Now those are seriously nice. Functional, unsusual but attractive. I wonder how much they are, might have to save for one.

Haha, I was just about to post that same thing about the minor 5th.
Cool ideas, though.

Cool guitars, but pretty gimmicky. A few thoughts:

  • Cut outs on the waste of the body were obviously influenced by the Peavey Vandenberg
  • Guitar players are traditionalists.
  • Anything new & innovative obviously sucks because it is not based off of a Strat or Les Paul.
  • This guitar has a lot of features that aren't based upon a Strat or Les Paul.
  • If I were to get one(which I never would), I would not want all those cavities routed out in the back.
  • While the cutout for the thumb is pretty cool, why would you need/want one for the trem bar?

these instruments are exceptionally thought out. if I were ordering one I'd prefer to omit the wireless and trem bar related covers because I play hardtails exclusively but that's some serious forethought. if I had the money to order a couple of seven strings from them I'd be in possession of the strat shaped and explorer shaped one

10-32 Guitars: Cool or Gimmicky?

Still don't know what to think, and I'm still wondering how he got the licensing for the zr.

Seems pretty cool to me. Really love all the magnetized stuff on the back, especially the cavity covers. I'm sure some guys will scoff at it for routing out so much of the wood but eh, whatever. 27 frets is pretty cool, and I REALLY like the body sculpting up near the neck joint. Only thing I have a problem with is the truss rod cover because it's too cheesy, but I don't care that much.

Dang. This guy has some cool ideas, that routing in the back and the set screw that pretty much acts as a tremol-no. I likey.
