a cargo box 22 between the full and half box (smaller than a full) but not so nice acoustic beam


It is really enjoyable to play, I'm used to my strat j'voue and I feel comfortable with, access to acute spent 12 difficult case but it goes and not the goal c
for now I sit cheek and shape is great, I have everything under control
in terms of sound is great, I develop in the next section but the microphone is standard config (2 doubles and 4 knobs + a selector 3 positions)


Well then, I bought it specifically to play jazz blues (acconmpagement a singer)
So the fingers or a pick. (Usually I am with strat electric lamp and stereo config)
I became over time super picky about the sound and then I'm thrilled because this guitar is really the sound I was looking for

I play mostly with the neck pickup that bottom vomume gives a full jazz (to Benson) but slamming hot and full of bass. It's amazing how she reacts to the attack, you can play soft finger and suddenly go solo by attacking and double the volume is a pleasure to dynamic subtlety. take care, because she went Larcen in the low volume according to what we are and how far from the amp. So for a game with control of attack, and background jazz volume mmmm.
if turning down the volume (up to 4 or even 5 of 10) is obtained a more acoustic guitar playing arpeggios and chords rather empty without Larcena! there is always the volume because it has a huge dynamic reserves. Ditto on the Tone knobs for a more deaf to the Metheny. bridge and middle positions are also top for a more rock blues but I is not too nem'en for now, I love the neck pickup.
I still tried with some slight distortion overdrive ca does well for blues;)

I tried it in the store on a fender acoustic transistor and it was the foot, then a fender twin as the foot, then a special acoustic guitar amp, a more acoustic, but also top, now I play on a Hughes and Kettner Attax 100 I had but I intend to buy a roland jazz chorus.

it sounds great! on all the amps I tried!


I've had about a month but I can not do without it, I play even without the plug because it sounds acoustic (but not as much as a Sufi folk play). So I love the dynamics and Polivalente (jazz up his farts good acoustic blues through rock). before buying it I have tried other makes and models at different price in a store in Italy: a mini with yamaha hubuker and piezo, not enough slamming jazz, an Ibanez AF I know what, but not very well enough sin in microphones, a epiphone jeo pass very well too, a cort: rotten, a gibson I know which model it was the right foot but € 4000 in a nutshell ... I cracked the birdland I find that rang as well as the gibson to € 4000! and better than the others above, say after the Ibanez, I plugged in (all on the same amp with the same setting) and I felt a big difference in dynamic crack on me. in terms of value for money, yes! because I paid € 1340, I know that on thomann natural version is VS 2300 but the (vintage sunburst) I do not see anywhere. I think I got a good deal.
