Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I also have one that was given me. I picked up a DiMarzio pickup for it and some D'Addario electric guitar strings (acoustic strings were too rigid) and this thing sounds AMAZING! I'm not able to find it anywhere on the web, but I feel like I have the best kept secret out there. It sounds a lot like a Martin. Enjoy it my friend! I know I will.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

Does anyone know where I can buy parts for the Chenault acoustic guitar? They are very hard to find... I have one that was bought down in Colombia, and want to get a set up on it, but having a hard time cause i cant find the nut of the neck from the guitar... Let me know if there are any websites or anything about the chenault guitar. Thanks

ummm i just bought a chenault and people say these are really rare but how much are they worth

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I bought this Chenault guitar from this old mexican man for a very cheap price and the guitar is excellent. I have never heard of chenault and so far there is no sites that I have found about this guitar. I just want to know some price ranges or even the availability of the guitar. I have model #YHHGUITAR2, does this mean that it's the 2nd guitar to come in to existance from this mysterious chenault maker. E-mail me, some one who knows please.

chenault 6 string acustic

My wife bought me a chenault guitar model #yhhguitar2 for a Christmas present 5 years ago. On the inside on the back of the neck it has the number 25 then a symbol of a witch or a hillbilly then the number 26. I sure would like to know what these numbers mean. It is the sunburst and it also has a pick holder on the front of the box with the name chenault engraved in gold letters. If anybody could let me know anything about these guitars I would appreciate it.

I just found out where the chenault guitar was made. I had the answer all along but didn't know it. On the back of the neck right below the tuning keys is a small gold oval with black letters that says made in china. So there you have it.

chenault 6 string acustic

The chenault is made in China by a company named Yaja Musical Instruments Factory in Guangdong, China.

chenault

My 13 year old son bought a guitar and amp at a yard sale for 5 bucks. He thought it was a strat and it looks almost the same but it is a chenault. We can't find any info except that they were made in tennessee and are worth up to $850. can't even find a serial number on it. does anyone know anything about these guitar?

Chenault guitar

I also recently found an Chenault guitar. Wonder if anyone ever found out where they were made, how much they are worth, what material they are made of. I always like to know the history of things.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

Just picked up one of these guitars today. I've never heard of this guitar until today, but it has a great sound, excellent low to mid range, really nice size neck for smaller hands. If you see one of these, grab it!

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

Wow this is weird. My grandpa passed away in 2005, and for this last Christmas I got a Chenault guitar from my grandma that was my grandpas. The weird thing is it has the same model # as yours... I'm not joking at all ethier.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

All have same Model Number. They were made in England. I bought mine for $ 500 each; but had trouble getting them in the mail undamaged. It took numerous shipments to get the two good ones I ordered. I was told they were made to play country music; but everyone that plays them, loves them. It has a great sound. I gave away one of them to a friend. These are cool guitars. Guess I should try to find the original flyer from the place where I purchased them. Sounds like they may have been discontinued from all the comments. I believe although the Model Number is the same and located directly inside, I believe they have different Serial Numbers, if you look sideways inside the guitars.

Chenault Acoustic Six String

Hi,

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

CHENAULT GUITAR

I have one of these, bought it as a gift. Never used, it is worth $400.00 but I am selling it for $150.00. Problem is, no one seems to have ever heard of the name. Neither Ebay nor Amazon. The original outer box was destroyed, it's in a different guitar cardboard box. It comes with picks and strap. Anyone who's interested, contact me via email.

I too have one of the Chenault #YHHGUITAR2's that my wife bought for me at Christmas time 4 or 5 years ago. She SAID that she only paid a couple of hundred bucks for it and ordered it from a Christmas Gifts catalog.
It is of about the same quality as my 30-year old Yamaha FG-140 - neither of which I would sell - unless someone made me an offer that I just couldn't refuse!

chenault

I came across an old Chenault YHHGUITAR2 as well. There is still no reliable info out there about when or where it's made. My guitar tech says definitely not USA made based on a number of factors. Likely Asian.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

"Just like a Fender Strat". I can not find any information about this guitar. Who makes it etc, etc.? dysonjay1981@yahoo.com

Hey man I bought my Chenault from a pawn shop...I have never heard anything about it either....all I know is its weird that no one has ever heard of these wonderful guitars and no one knows how much there worth....

Chenault Guitars

The model number you have seen is just that, a model number. Every Acoustic Chenault that I have seen, heard about or read about has that same number #YHHGUITAR2. Some folks are reporting (on different websites) that they are made in a small facility in Tennessee. Others are reporting that they are made by the Yaja Musical Instruments Factory in Guangdong, China. Personally, from the sound quality that is produced I tend to believe the Tennessee facility is where they are made. Now if the guitar was named a Chennault, I would have no trouble believing that the guitar was made in China. Because or General Claire Chennault and his Flying Tigers and the roll they played in turning back the dreaded Japanese from China and other countries of the Asian Pacific Theater during WWII. But make note of the single "N" in the Chenault name, compared to the double "NN" in Chennault, of that of General Clair Chennault. I too have one of these guitars and am as perplexed as anyone else about this matter. The guitar does have a trade mark emblem inside it next to the name so, the patent office may be the next place I search to try to find a name of the patent holder and place of origin.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I have just inherited the same model number. I have no idea what it is worth. I have a Martin, Ovation (vintage), Strat, Yamaha, etc. If anyone has a clue, I'd appreciate input.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I have two of them. They all have the same Model Number. They cost me $ 500 each. I love the sound and the second one I bought for a friend. The original advertisement said they were created in England and were meant to play Country Music. That's the reason I bought them in 2006.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I just inherited a Chenault and have no idea as to the value. I own a number of guitars, including Martin, Fender, Ovation, etc. If anyone has a clue to the manufacturer or quality, I would appreciate the feedback.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

Hi! I recently bought the same model guitar for my husband for Christmas. We want to know the same thing! If you get a website or info please let me know. Thanks!

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

: yea i got the yhhguitar2 sunburst as well, it plays great. i also was wondering what it was worth?

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I bought my chenault guitar in a pawn shop, I have no background information on the guitar or brand, but it is nearly identical to the fender stratocaster. I suppose this is the 3rd in the world?

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

i have the same guitar and was wondering if you found anything out about it. i got it from an old guitar plasyer who had it for yrs and he doesnt know much about it either:

I purchased a few thousand of these for my company between 2002 & 2006 from China. We were very please with the quality as we specified the materials etc. Glad you like it.

Chennault Acoustic

I purchased my used Chennault today from a pawn shop. Bought it for $89.00 plus tax... When I first saw it, the 3rd and 5th strings were missing. The remaining strings were what I assumed, the original strings. They were tarnished and just looked OLD. I picked it up from the stand, the second thing I noticed was the SOLID feel of it. I looked it over for a few minutes ...then I plucked the top string, although it was a very old string, the projection was awesome! I knew right away that I had found a gem. When I got it home I put some D' Addario lights on it. Wow!!! It has a few blemishes and a small damage chip on the bottom edge, and a few scuffs, but over all, a beauty. Love the intonation and the resonance. Luck comes to a person when they least expect it. I have always been a Alvarez lover, but maybe I have a new love...Chennault baby..lol. Thanks for reading my story.. Kenny.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I have a Chenault electric Stratocaster copy I bought online cheap. Can't remember exactly where I got it, but I can't find any information about it, and now I want to sell it. I'd like to get some documentation for any potential buyers. Maybe I can find information if I take it to the local guitar store and start asking questions.

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I just purchased a chenault model #YHHGUITAR2, have you found any information on these?

Re: chenault acustic 6 string guitar

I have a Chenault cherry sunburst guitar with a solid top that sounds real good. It is the same model number YHHGUITAR2. I bought some guitars last fall that had no name on the head stock with the model # HHGUITAR3. The stickers inside the guitars said MAXAM since 1950 with the model number. That was all. I was able to find HHGUITAR1 & HHGUITAR2 (which was only the 1 with a case). This guitar was made of lamenated wood. I emailed the site about the solid top guitars that I had. I was told that they were discontinued. Since then I found the Chenault in a friends guitar store. I was glad since I already knew that it would have a good sound. Sorry I don't know any more.

Good pickin'
