One of a kind French wonderful guitar !

Let me introduce you......... a 25 years old guitar.

the Kamel Chenaouy / Apex 2000 programmable ( concorde finishing )
one of a kind , because she's programmable
Sorry but my bad english cannot explain exactly the feeling

But she has Gotoh/KC pickups that could kill deaf people
The neck one is the most powerfull and sharp I could test.

There is a multisound rotary switch (not a varitone !!!) that simulate a sound of accoustic,warm jazz,fender-like, Bigson-like, the two last for a lead sound

Manipulating with a little reverb/flanger I managed to have a sitar sound

very various types

you can memorize the setups ( pickups sel, vol, ton, multisound, split, (inverseur de phase)in english ) by pushing the "memo" button - very easy
and re-find them with simple select 0-9 and push the memo button,

Is anyone knows a similary guitar ?
















a mint condition that shows the high end quality

I am not familiar with it, but the fretboard wood is very nice!

Re: One of a kind French wonderful guitar !

I don't think so, Bigshred

it's not only an original style, it's also a revolutionnary concept ( luthery and electronics )

the neck is a thru-body 7 parts-delta ! a unique by Kamel Chenaouy like this one:

Re: One of a kind French wonderful guitar !

That is certainly a wild guitar. Although, I haven't decided whether or not I find the innovative functions to be truly useful. Of course, I haven't used the guitar either.

Re: One of a kind French wonderful guitar !

Hmmm, not my thing. I can't dig the body shape at all. But if you dig the slightly more 'radical' body shapes then you'll love it. I'm boring though so it's too 'out there' for me.

Pickups look interesting though.

Re: One of a kind French wonderful guitar !

I think you have to look at this guitar in light of the period in which it was new, which was about '82. Rich Biches, Polka dot Vs, Charvel Stars, and such were becoming popular and traditional designs weren't always the standard.

Just like the styles of clothes popular in that era, not all of the guitar styles have aged well
