“... I could write another 9 or 10 paragraphs about how happy I am with my GCS, but I don't want to waste your time. What impresses me most is that my actual playing has improved because I'm finally playing an instrument that gives me the sound that I want to hear. No other guitar has ever really done that for me. I love this guitar.”    -Pete A. –Boston, MA

“I've had the GCS-1 for quite some time now, I originally intended to use it for mostly jazz but with lighter strings have found it perfect for rock, classic rock and even some heavy stuff. It has replaced all my go-to rock stage guitars. It is really just an amazing guitar...” Rick - Monroe, New Jersey

“Your GCS-1 guitar is exactly the guitar I was looking for in terms of tone, play-ability and build quality that I can use for jazz, rock & fusion... I am looking to get close to that classic Larry Carlton/Steely Dan tone. Your GCS-1 guitar delivers it!  I would highly recommend it to anyone and will spread the word about your company and your fantastic guitars.”  Don F.

“I recently purchased a Comins GCS 16-2 at the Dallas Guitar show from Dale of DHR Music...I still can't put it down. These are by far the best frets I have ever played. The neck feels just right.

“The craftsmanship is unbelievable and I love how you can get great jazz tones and warm modern overdriven sounds.” Scott – Newington, CT

“It is awesome! I have searched for a semi-hollow for quite some time and this is definitely it. It plays like a dream and sounds incredible. I am amazed by the overall range of the guitar...It packs a punch too. I'm amazed by the quality of this instrument. The fit and finish is incredible. The sunburst is perfect and the fingerboard is polished like glass. I just cannot say enough nice things about this guitar.” Brian – Oklahoma City, OK

“First of all, it is simply gorgeous... The very first time I played it thru a totally clean jazz amp, the utter clarity and sustain of this guitar absolutely floored me... Tonally, I find this guitar to be unique; even with the overdrive kicked in a good deal, I can surely still hear the "hollow" in this semi-hollow.” Larry- Gansevoort, NY

“I received the guitar yesterday and seriously it's the first time I hear a sound balance like that. The neck pickup is fantastic for the Jazz really warm and round and for the bridge it's perfect for blues the sounds is slamming and clear.” Philippe – Gatineau, Quebec

“5hrs a day use... (can't put it down!). You designed this thing sooo fine. I can only imagine how your high end instruments feel. I'll get there someday :)”  Don J. -Beaverton, Oregon


“I actually bought the GCS-1 sight unseen, first time I have done that with a guitar, based on your reputation and after watching some videos online.   And I love the guitar, it’s terrific.   Great setup, fast neck, the Wilkinson tuners are excellent, and the Armstrong pickups, with coil-split, are really versatile – I can dial up anything from smooth jazz to blues to rock...While I very much appreciate the price, my guess is you are leaving money on the table.”   Martin J. –Reston, VA

 “I bought a GCS-1ES model and it's amazing! ... I hope someday I will pick up an archtop from you.”   Hugo M. -Palma De Mallorca, Spain
