Third Eye Guitars (often referred to as 3YE) is the brain child of Jerome and jb, owners of the French guitar company Custom77. 3YE Guitars was created in 2012 as an opportunity to develop metal oriented guitars that couldn’t fit in Custom77 distinctive vintage style catalog. The rapid, and deserved, rise of Chunk ! coincided perfectly with the development of Third Eye Guitars. That signature model had a raging success and was sold to CNCC fans worldwide in a couple of month ! Third Eye Guitars artists: Joey Sturgis (producer of Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada, We Came as Romans, Emmure…), City Lights (USA), Early Seasons (France), Wake the Giants (Australia), The Earl Grey (France), Falling Here (Italia), Now I See (Russia), Legend of You (USA). Features: Using exclusively 3YE Guitars London’s Burning – Baritone during the recording of “Pardon My French”, CNCC’s guitarists Eric and Paul worked with 3YE to develop a new signature model that would follow them during the upcoming tour. An instrument that would endure the hard touring life and that would deliver their wide, produced, high gain but controlled studio sound to the stage. The result is a slick and dangerous looking guitar that, end to end, is a more than two-inch longer than the LFL – Evil Twin, but delivers the girthful tone, low notes, giant chords, and other sonic beef that can only be achieved by going long scale and tuning down to B. This instrument is right at home in heavy music, and consistently low action across its monolith-straight neck makes it a great guitar for faster riffs and fills-especially if you facilitate matters further by dialing in the forgiving distortion and natural compression of a high-gain amp. Seymour Duncan Blackouts were the perfect pickups to match this lively guitar and reach perfectly that woody, warm and intensely organic sought-after sound. The Blackouts supercharge the instrument’s tonal quality and scream with an animalistic emotion and toothy bite.
