Cool!!! Thanks, Chihoe!
I keep working on my demo, but it's still more clams than lobsters.
Actually, Jim himself requested that Chihoe build a low-priced guitar. I think the original price point that Chihoe told me Jim was asking him to hit was under a thousand dollars ($800?), which wasn't feasible, and so he did whatever he could to bring the price down to $1495 without compromising the instrument.
I placed my order in late December and received my Model C in the middle of June. I think Chihoe has room for improvement when it comes to expectation management and possibly communication but, whoa, I don't know if he could possibly build a better guitar. I know I had my moments of impatience during those last weeks but thinking about it now feels ridiculous. If you're still waiting, hang in there. Owning this guitar completely feels like a privilege, I've never played it's equal. Thanks, Chihoe!! Looking forward to the gig bag!
Hi, guys. My guitar is here! I will play it tonight and then tell you. BTW, it seems sweet! Ciao
I played my new Model C: guys, it's a killer! Tons of harmonics: more then Marilyn Monroe singin for Jfk. Great deep sound: i will use it for jazz gigs. The fretwork is perfect, so the neck. You can feel the vibrations in all your body. Long wait, but now I'm a definetly a happy kid.
Thank you Chihoe!
That’s awesome! If you record a demo of it, please post it here so we can check it out.
Here is a little demo of my new Model C. Nothing special, I had few minutes before go to work....
Enrico, I loved your video and your playing.
I know that you were frustrated; so it’s great that you are pleased with the Model C.
I am still waiting for mine. And I’m patient. But “the waiting IS the hardest part”.
The Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream is the same color as the model c in that video. I guess while we wait we can ice cream party it up! Hahn-Dazs vanilla ice cream guitar!
Did you guys get tracking numbers when you got your model Cs or did it just show up at your doors?
Yes, I'm so happy!. Let us know about your guitar! Ciao!
One day the tracking number just arrived!
My Model C arrived today. I only had time to play it acoustically for a few minutes & plugged in (at very low volume) for just another minute or two.
So far, so good.
Nice! What are you playing? Sounds awesome.
When did you order yours?
Ugh. Ordered mine in May. Guess I have a little bit of a wait still to go.
I looks, to me, like a GFS kit guitar. Since JC has done so well in has career with a standard Fender Tele, my big question about THIS guitar is : WHY ? Here's JC as recently as May 2018, and he's not playing a HAHN tele....
My understanding is that Jim has played the Hahn out a fair bit. And he has said that he’s hoping that the Hahn Model C will help him to rip his 59 out of his hands. (I think that he’s like to NOT fly with the 59 anymore. )
As far as the “GFS kit” business, the key to a great tele is really the setup, right? While Chihoe Hahn cuts the neck and bodies, builds his own hardware and has a pickup mfr guy onsite, ultimately what’s going to make his guitars great is his TLC.
So how is your model c!? Any videos incoming? Or pics!?
Is the guitar light?
Every time I hear my doorbell ring now I immediately think it might be Hahn knocking.
