This is a semi-hollow, Reduces size compared to standard format became the ES335.
The body and neck are Rabl. The key, rosewood, includes 22 boxes.
The guitar has two humbucking, 58 super.
The electronic could not be more conventional with a volume knob of one of Tone for the two humbuckers and a 3 slecteur positions.
FYI, The models "high end" of the SERIES AM have a body and a mahogany neck, while the key is bne (eg, AM 205).
The handle is a real rgal. Playing comfort ensured whether chords, riffs or to apply phrass fast.
In any subjectivist (but may be it is also because it is the instrument that has followed most of my progress on guitar ...), it is the handle that I found the more enjoyable to play all the guitars I've tried (though I possde also a GODIN, marks the sleeves are yet rputs! but I did not find that m I ease of play).
CHAC is quite acute for ais and the weight of the instrument is reasonable trs.
The Schematic electronic, classical, can quickly find the sound.
The handle al the lack of vibrato and rsonnance of the box provide a trs good sustain.
As for the Super 58 pickups, they contribute greatly the quality of the instrument and its versatility: micro dlivrer be serious in warm jazz sound (the dosage of the Tone will provide a sound trs round or more slammin), while the microphone allows aige distos scathing. It's the same type of microphone that can be found throughout the range AM (as well as the MODEL JSM John Scofield Ibanez or other models of quality jazz and blues orientation).
The instrument appears as comfortable in a jazz record that for more aggressive sounds (jazz-rock, blues, rock). Crunches are great!
I believe that the instrument be mounted with a win taking enough lev (10-52). It dlivrera the best of itself on a branch amp lamp will bring out the warmth of tone and harmonics (the saturation of the microphone will be biting acute desire without being too aggressive ). As such, the use of a prampli lamp (type V-Twin) will do the job if we have to grow on transistors. The instrument also s'avre trs good branch of the gear modlisation (such Tonelab).
The use of mdiators Dugain type, can only help improve the sound (but it's true for any guitar possde a minimum of characters!).
Although Obviously, given the nature of the instrument, the sounds are plutt "Gibsonian" (fans of crystalline sounds or sounds modern refrain ...).
Ultimately, this is an instrument trsrussi particulirement and endearing. I purchased it used about 15 years ago for $ 500 euros, on the advice, Aviss, a professional seller who had it even with rcupre s a jazzeux. It seems that the CTE of this type of instrument Whereas increased!
It is clear that this is the instrument which, when t bnficiait manufactured a quality-price ratio hardly galable! Even if the PM-50 is the "low end" of the AM SERIES, benefitted the instrument of a great quality of manufacture and trs aged well! I do not spare this guitar (even under torture!) And I would be happy to try other models of the SERIES (but they are quite hard to find ...).
