    I was browsing teh interwebs and came across this guy:



    and it looks like has some very cool ideas, magnetic cavity covers, wireless recesses, inlays into the actual neck itself to mark frets etc etc. watch for yourself.

    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 fucking 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.

    :agreed: 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. :yesway:

    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!!

    Normally I'm not big on straying from the traditional path regarding guitars, but there is some really cool shit on that guitar

    Magnetic cavity covers are nothing new but the rest is neat I guess.

    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. :lol:

    EDIT:
    I like him.

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

    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
