«  A guitar master »

Publié le 04/18/11 à 03:27
I bought this guitar used in the U.S., but it was totally new. Result: I paid 1,000 euros less than the average price, but watch out for customs fees, huge, when you buy a guitar in the U.S. via Ebay: your bid you have to add between 20 and 30%!
The scam is that you apply this rate even if the guitar is used!
The handle is a modern type of dish. The look is great. It's a small guitar: it is smaller than for example 355 to which it resembles.
9 / 10

UTILIZATION

The neck is nice and the weight of the guitar is no problem.
Access to acute is correct, but it's not a Start!.
You can see me play with the 356 (and hear) here:


SOUNDS

It takes some getting used to the fact that to have a sound not crunchy, although no effects blues or jazz, there must be volumes of tones below 8.
A 9 or 10 and the sound becomes saturated fats, for use aggressive, so.

There is a very good range of sounds, because the difference in personality between the two microphones is very strong. The mixture of the two microphones is also changing, as the assay.
The most beautiful sounds (as often) will be achieved with cords rather hard, and 011 being perfect ... but I know a lot of guitarists do not go beyond 010!

9 / 10

OVERALL OPINION

I have had many guitars in my life, and this is the best, though it requires effort to master, including a search long enough on sound.
The fittings are superb, the varnish too.
The overall rating for me is 8.5 / 10
