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.
Ibanez closely worked with Mario Camarena, one half of the dynamic guitar duo of CHON, for many years and have worked closely with him to develop a new signature model with him, the MAR10. The guitar is highly inspired by the Ibanez AZ model, and it also features some of Mario's personal touches 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 Roasted Maple fretboard w/Sharktooth inlay also has Heat-treatment. It provides a well-balanced attack and tone with rich sustain. In order to achieve ultimate 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.
The Seymour Duncan Hyperion Pickups feature a moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets to keep the clarity of the fundamental tone when using a distortion sound, and to deliver a clear pick attack. From treble to bass, the overall tonal balance is evenly adjusted, and works well with various effect pedals.
The dyna-MIX 9 switching system w/Alter switch offers nine sound variations, and can easily switch between humbucker and single coil modes with just the mini switch. One mode is even able to simulate a humbucker sound from the combination of the 2 single coil pickups. Ibanez T1502 synchronized bridge w/Steel saddles (made by Gotoh) features steel saddles and a die-cast zinc tremolo block for a quick response and improved articulation.
The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings. Its snap-in construction makes it easy to load a tremolo arm. Other features include Graphtech TUSQ XL nut and Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads. A Gig bag is included.
