Jack & Danny ABG-5
Made in China, bottom and sides mahogany, spruce,
Shadow LC4 equalizer (active, 9 V battery): 4-band: bass; med low, med high, treble + + volume phase inverter
24 round boxes
Mechanical die cast that take good agreement


The handle is nice but quite rounded (much less an end than electric)
45 mm at nut, 64 mm at the 12th fret (almost identical to my Status)
easily accessible to the 21 th fret, after extensions required!
The fund allows the right arm to easily find their place and though imposing rather low light and not tiring


Unplugged, it does not sound too bad (even if severe), however, without much volume.
Perhaps it can accompany a classical guitar but no more.
Once connected to the active preamp does its job and allows her to have a very aggressive or on the contrary quite round by digging and cutting the mids treble
A flat, fast enough grip on the preamp feedback (not to play near the speakers)
Well, all styles of music are not usable on this type of instrument, but to support the variety, folk, jazz, the fact that bien.Pour funk, metal, jazz-rock (the slap?), not at all (not powerful enough microphones)


€ 190 bought 4 months ago, I did not expect wonders, but wanted an electro-acoustic so I can move around the house or garden without being dependent on cables and amplifier and ideal when you only bump or you want to transplant a riff on the radio. I was pleasantly surprised by the violin (she is very pretty)
Against certain finishes by inadequate: It frieze much that the handle is straight, the frets are well polished, the original set of strings is a bit crappy (the G string sounded differently, I thought a default positioning of the microphone but the worry has disappeared since I changed the strings.
So I brought to my luthier that made me stick Planning + polishing frets (allow 50 to € 100 extra) which makes a nice low and that sounds good for about 250 € (which is very affordable ) have not had the opportunity to try other electro acoustic, but I can not compare in terms of price, it climbs very quickly (about € 400 for the Ibanez and after more than € 1000 for models Luxury) For me (and work mainly alone) it is clearly sufficient
