« Vantage VS-35 - Fun to Upgrade, Gibson CF-100 copy »Published on 02/05/16 at 04:29
The old electronics were broken - so I replaced them with a no-name brand. Works fine. Also replaced the tuners, nut, and I have purchased a compensated bridge to put in.
I believe the guitar's top to be made of solid Nato wood, which is a wood similar to mahogany. The sides, I am pretty sure is a laminate, again Nato wood. (I had to enlarge the hole for the new electronics and I am pretty sure it's a laminate.)
The guitar projects great and with the new compensated bridge it really sounds and feels great. It has a deep tone. All in all, it is a fine guitar to get cheap and upgrade. It's now about the quality of a 1000 dollar guitar.
This guitar model was made in Korea by the precursors of Samick.
