    LBS (La Boite à Son) ES885Published on 06/22/08 at 14:25

    - Although no indication of the manufacture of the guitar is present on the instrument, clearly we are dealing with the "made in china" (The question is whether the assembly has been done elsewhere?)
    - 20 frets, 2 humbuckers (with the standard configuration of the two knobs + 2 pitch knobs and microphone selector 3 positions)
    - Bridge-like tune-o-matic tailpiece with a trapezoidal
    - Maple set neck (2 pieces) and key rosewood
    - Maple body 1 / 4 body with sustain block
    - Gold hardware

    I model "natural" (the one on the picture seems to be "red sunburst"), the body is beautiful, all rather well done if you do not dwell too much on the small glue drippings in the handle and the diff…

    I model "natural" (the one on the picture seems to be "red sunburst"), the body is beautiful, all rather well done if you do not dwell too much on the small glue drippings in the handle and the different finishing details which show that it is a Chinese guitar ...
    Having seen much worse on Epiphone Sheraton II Natural finish (it forgives evil), I remains an indulgent, cowardly 7.5 / 10

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is quite comfortable, a little wider than a Sheraton, but thinner, with access to acute rather easy for a semi-hollow.
    Ergonomics is not, however terrible strapped in a standing position the weight of the guitar is too much on the body. Only the sitting position is comfortable (it also comes standard with no screw tips in body neck, which is curious ..)
    The overall weight is common to this type of guitar ... I confess not to gaff it, the weight of a good old custom Gibson Lespaul not asking me any problems.

    The question is where this guitar shows its strongest point: Despite the rotten knobs (we pass nothing at all) it is super versatile, the microphones respond very well and have to sustain the fourth body addition to sounds that can cover an impressive range! (LBS promo video on youtube to
    )

    SOUNDS

    Apart from the metal, this guitar can suit almost any style. Playing mostly jazz and pop, it is entirely appropriate to my style when I need a little more sustain with my Lespaul.
    Amps: Vox AC30 Heritage H-2 L, H & K Attax Club Reverb and Behringer V-Tone GMX212
    I play mostly on midrange of the amp to switch between the "fat" to more "crystalline"
    Favorite sound: clear and distinct
    Sounds hated: hyper saturated and drooling

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this guitar for 3 months (the last two bought a stock in natural finish on ebay and especially on a whim to 280 Euros).
    I love the sound and the overall look of the guitar (very successful table), the features I like least is the finishing ... mechanics a little cheap and knobs too!
    I had not tried to particular model before buying this guitar, but having owned the past two Gibson ES-335 I can say that LBS is a very good copy in relation to the Sheraton II that I had fun testing thereafter.
    For 280 Euros, the price / quality ratio seems to be very good, it said its original price of 500 Euros I would not have purchased because I had real utility.
    With the experience I would be annoyed because the production of this model appears to have stopped, so I do not regret ;-)
