    I know I'm probably in the minority but I'm sorry I think its pretty god awful looking, like seriously fugly. I think headless guitars are ugly in the first place, IMO the whole concept is overrated and a bit of a novelty.

    Can't comment on GNG, looks well made :yesway:

    I am going to take the crucifix of my necklace and put a mini version of this on instead.

    Hello Guys!! I'm the owner of this GNG's beauty, and you can call me Mike! :wavey:
    Foremost i want to thank You for sharing and appreciating this instrument, it is so much more than words can describe, so... here are some videos that show what one can do with such a creature, wich is actually very down to earth, and i'm sure you'll agree with me that is not important the number of strings, but what can we do with them... :idea:

    Here is the last video i made, wich is a good example to see how everything one plays on a 7 strings can be played as well with this: :metal:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glnq4SPQ1Bc

    Here's something completely different, wich is mostly what i love to do.. just merge myself into music, blindfolded, at 432Hz... that is my "place to be": :cool:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-uHXZZk0fE

    And here's one of the tracks i realized with one of my favourite guitar players, not to mention best friend and collegue, Claudio Pietronik, in our side project known as "Tao Inception"... check his work too, He's really "steps ahead": :shred:

    Finally, here's the link to my youtube channel, where you can find most of the work i've done so far with Shen, my fellow 10 strings:
    https://www.youtube.com/user/MikeRavenhunt/videos

    Just to tease you up a bit with some kinky stuff : :spock:

    - I'm using picks made of Kevlar....
    - Most of my music is tuned at 432Hz!
    - I play Blindofolded most of the time, to improve my Stereognosis....
    - It dJon't necessarely Djent! :wallbash:

    If there is any question you are wandering about, feel free to ask, for i will be happy to answer and clarifie any doubt or gimmick!
    Again, thank You for sharing! :bowdown:
    Life in A Breath!
    Namasté!
    Aloha! ;)

    Not my style, but the craftsmanship is amazing! Beautifully done. I've only seen one other guitar with a triple bucker and that was Fredrik's "mother bucker".

    Hey guys, and Mike, this guitar is so hot that I bought one too!
    I played a 9 strings (C-9) for over a year, I loved it. I than bought my 1st 10 strings, an Agile Pendulum fan fret. Its quality isn't as high as the C-9 but the fan fret made it more enjoyable to me. And here we are, 8 months later I'm ordering this beast.

    Many players don't like or understand 9+ strings concept and I respect that. But in my case it is the opposite, I sold all my 6 strings cause I don't even feel like playing them anymore.

    I'm far from being a virtuoso on any guitar, I just ended up enjoying those extended range better...

    I did not receive this new GNG yet but I'm so excited to finally get one... Just a few more days...

    Cheers sEQVO8rsfPw.jpg

    I will! Hey Mikahel. What strings are you using for this guitar? Where do you get them?

    What about the Kevlar picks you are using? Why those? Where do you get them?

    Thanks

    I've seen GNG guitars floating around for a little while and by the sounds of things, they make quality stuff.

    I love the tone Claudio Pietronik gets out of his sig. I initially thought this song was a bit cheesy but was won over.
