Garie Chavez - My Story

How you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started playing guitar when I was 12 years old. Prior to learning to play guitar, my mom enrolled me in piano lessons. But even then I knew in my heart that I wanted to play guitar. So, I borrowed my dad’s acoustic guitar and decided to teach myself how to play by reading guitar chord charts and play by ear. When I was 14 years old, I bought my first electric guitar, built my own guitar distortion box and formed my first rock band. Fast forward to 2023, I built my very first custom Stratocaster style electric guitar fractal art. Nothing is impossible in life when you set your and heart and passion in it. Just play guitar!

What is your specialty?
I specialize in fractal art design on live edge wood. It is a process of applying 20,000 volts of electricity to the wood surface recreating a lightning strike in slow motion that also forms unique abstract figures, tree, and vein-like shapes. The wood is sealed with high grade epoxy inlay with choice of any color ink.

What sets you apart from others?
Patience, persistence, passion and attention to detail are the key ingredients to my work. Because each piece of wood I work with is unique, my fractal art process freely allows for the design to develop organically. My goal is for my clients to have a piece of art that they cherish and know that it is truly one of a kind and made especially for them. Each art is custom-made and handcrafted in North Peoria, Arizona. No CNC machine is used.

What is the story behind the name GUIHAN?

The name GUIHAN is a derivative of my mom’s family name. My mom was born in the Philippines in a small provincial town in Tanauan, Batangas, the youngest daughter of a farmer. If you look at the logo on top of the letter “U” – is my homage to the shape of my mother’s eyes. What better way to name my custom electric guitar brand in honor of my mom. I love and miss her every day.
