Gus Guitars

stumbled upon these a while ago. very rarely do i bother to look twice at most new design of guitars (maybe except for maverick) but this got me interested in these guitars. certainly not everyones cup of tea. but they are carbon fibre and come in cool colours. ill let you guys be the judges.
7 STRING



VIBRATO (+MIDI + PIEZO)


10TH



PURPLE


BARITONE

Re: Gus Guitars

Cool shape and a unique idea. Not sure how they'd hold up tonally though.

Re: Gus Guitars

I had a good long go on a couple - they're amazing guitars, really nice and smooth to play, and the sound (from what I could guage at the music show!) was great. They are pretty pricey though - put it this way, the only UK stockist is Harrods !! From what I recall, I think they were about 1,500 - 2,000 for the cheapest one, but I could be wrong. Worth a go, definitely.

Vibetronic! Mods, excuse this post, as it's off topic, but...

Hey man, I remember you from Guitar War back in the day... maybe like 7 years ago. My screen name was Bozz, if you can remember me. I didn't enter too many contests, but I was a regular on our forum and chat room and such.

Anyway, hope all is well for you man. Welcome to the forums, unless you've been here for some time.

ARE YOU SERIOUS?
i saw one in harrods for 5,000 and another for 3,000
they are VERY pricey, Hmm makes me wonder why....
they do look pretty cool, but its not something i'd get up on stage with
maybe if they paint it yellow with a maple fretboard then just Maybe! xD

Re: Gus Guitars

The 5 000 quid one is the Prince edition isn't it? If so, the metalwork round the edges is 22 karat plate (3 micron plate, so very durable). They ain't pretty, but they look comfortable.

The fat girlfriend thing again - you wouldn't want to be seen in public with them.

Was about to say, they look like something The-artist-formally-known-as-the-artist-formally-known-as-Prince would play.

Also looks like some kind of weird sex toy.
