CHON is a band that has quickly grown from playing local shows in their hometown of San Diego, to earning a spot on the Billboard top 200 and playing on tours with contemporary giants such as Animals As Leaders and Circa Survive. The easiest way to categorize CHON would be “instrumental rock”, but that categorization would not do the band justice. With their debut full-length album ‘Grow’, CHON incorporated many genres including prog, rock and jazz, and featured lightning quick guitar playing, staccato drumming and floaty melodies, inventing a sound that’s fresh, exciting and wholly their own. CHON is a band that has truly changed the game when it comes to instrumental guitar-driven music, and they’ve only just begun.
Erick Hansel, one half of the dynamic guitar duo of CHON, has been an Ibanez Artist for many years and has now worked closely with Ibanez to develop a new signature model, the EHM10. The guitar is highly inspired by Ibanez AZ models, and it also features Erick’s personal touches in order to make it perfectly designed for his versatile playing style. A shallow body back contour and a big forearm contour make the guitar body fit the player naturally, thus increasing playing comfort. The AZ body has a deep waist and different radii on each body edge curve, making it easier to play in both standing or sitting positions.
The AZ Roasted Maple neck has Heat-treatment and increases the wood’s stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. The Jatoba fretboard has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve. The Super All Access Neck Joint offers superior playability with its 8mm concave curve from the body top to the spherical surface of the joint area. By maximizing the joint area between the body and the neck, sustain and resonance are increased as well.
