Year and place of manufacture unknown ... but probably late 80 'in Asia (any clarification is welcome!).
Fund maple (I think) beautifully flamed back ... key flat rosewood.
2 Humbuckers licensed "Kent Armstrong"
3 position selector for each pickup and a volume and tone ... nothing but very classic.
Channel quite narrow and flat ... very comfortable, although I am not accustomed to, including varnish ...
The mechanical "oil bath" standards are very properly the agreement and the action is on my own, perfectly set ... flush with the handle without any "frisouille"

UTILIZATION

The access to acute is correct and this guitar is, as I said, surprisingly comfortable. weight "just right" ... we feel it is there, but it's not painful at all what!
The body is thick (it's a half-body what!) But the general pattern is far from daunting even to the first grip.
Finally, the sound ... pfffouououou beautiful!

SOUNDS

In acoustics, already, it sounds well enough itches quietly until the heat lamps ... Once plugged in, there always ... is still 100 times better!
The neck pickup sounds muffled to very hot and jazz ... while maintaining a beautiful setting and a real grain "Acoustic" (very beautiful on a clear channel)
The bridge pickup is a little more "rabble" ... he likes a little crunch a little dirty ... How much more rock ...
The intermediate position (the two microphones together so) ... perfect for rhythm and great fun in his clear sounds almost "folk".
Overall, very good looking, I could not find a configuration with which you can get a bad sound.
The pickups are very quiet (no noise), very precise and "push" the amp though ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it only last a few hours (bought second hand with his flight case for a very very reasonable) ... I do not regret a single second purchase of this guitar ...
The low "visibility" of the brand make, I think, a very good deal on the second hand market ...

Truly a guitar with an open mind to try ... and finally buy!
