    UTILIZATION

    On my first test in the store, I have not really had a crush on the handle. However, you soon get used as often on good scratch.
    We walk along the handle easily, euuuh finally, the extent of his talent ... The access is very acute to correct.
    The case is quite impressive, and is very comfortable when playing sitting on for a long time. The weight does not help either. This scratch is rather heavy for a 1 / 2 box, because the bridge is required by a "beam". We can no longer beating time with his right foot after an hour, you no longer feel his legs ... standing, the weight is surprisingly less annoying.
    The design of the vents can not see well inside the box. it's stupid. There's not even the little paper with the make, serial number etc ...
    The finish is really not bad. Mine has no outstanding default / noticed. The choice and design of accessories is rewarding for those who like that kind of guitar, especially the Grover Imperial. I find it quite beautiful to look at, near, far, top etc ...
    The bridge is very nice, although its origin remains obscure. Bigsby type, it gives a mechanical side, like a good old kick bike, it's funny. The range is not huge but the tuning is resistant to trémoloooo oo oo

    SOUNDS

    Once connected, it's really a pleasant surprise. I'm really happy, it sounds great (so it's great).
    Yet I did try to guard me, when trying a skyscraper in a store, it is often the right to a very nice amp that rounds the corners with guitars middle-but there, I immediately cracked.
    and it also continues ...
    The bass is smooth and very bright highs.
    When passing the intermediate position than the neck pickup, the difference
    sound is not great but I find that the range of sounds is really wide.
    A small drive on the amp, and you end up with a delicious crunch.
    With heavy distortion, it works just as well, surprising even for this type of scraper.
    Clearly, the sound seems very honest, very hot.

    Easy ways to get sound credible. I think that's his forte. And we're not stuck on a sound rockab as could be feared its pace and its specificities.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I wanted just a 1 / 2 correct box to tinker gently with Bigsby for staïleu well ... I have used.
    The value is very good.

    It is still quite spécilisée as scratches, must know what you want. And of course, I would do the same choice as I was looking for exactly that.

    It's not a guitar running, the sound is excellent, better than an Ibanez of the same range, the finish is very correct, it is very beautiful and I'm glad.

    EDIT ... After 6 months of use, the impression is good. However, I just sell it for a slightly higher-end gretsch. The Kelly possesses a more versatile, less marked and this advantage became a disadvantage for me over time (I wanted a Gretsch, voilàaaa ...). After an adjustment made by a specialist, it has become much easier to play, but it is quite demanding: an agreement is poorly clad and the drama! Here too, she can not stand the comparison with the gretsch (which is twice its price). So it's still a great guitar.
    I even sometimes regret.
