Glenn Fricker’s Honest Gear Reviews #3 – Charbonneau 7 String

In case Glenn’s abrasive tutorials and racy music videos weren’t enough for you, he’s also begun doing gear reviews in the only way he knows how – honestly.


Luckily for Charbonneau, in this case he’s being honest about how much he likes the thing. I like to think I’m honest as possible in my reviews, but I might be a bit easier to please than Glenn, so when he’s happy, there must be something great going on.

Check out his review below, and learn more about Charbonneau guitars here.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.

  • The horns don’t look quite right…

  • Gotta say it. I’ve bee nwatching this guys videos from the get go, but one thing that I think he REALLY needs to look at from a different perspective is his guitar tone. It’s fucking awful. Mushy, boomy, and just overall sloppy sounding.

  • For a hand built guitar, that’s insane. The only question I have is how is he making sure the neck to stand up to heavy, heavy strings for drop tuning?

    • thicker strings will still be the same pounds of tension as thin strings in standard tuning.
