Manufacturing year Koréenne 90 (1992 mine)
Set neck, half box with central beam (copy of the Gibson ES 335)
Rounded frets medium size.
Rosewood fingerboard with nice bending
Fibers of relatively straight and tight timber.
Typical circuit with double two double theft and tone
PAF-type humbucker (ceramic?) Changed to Seymour (see below)
Channel of good quality, provide a very light planif for past cases (a classic)
Intonation quite correct.
Compared to a true 335, it sounds less woody, the varnish is thicker and the back of the neck slides a lot.
The attack is less smooth, the sound is less chubby, but it gives him a very sound side totally usable.
The basic circuit is not great, but with 4 CTS 500k, capas of 0047 oil and two Seymour (Jazz and JB N B), the sound is very nice for a guitar of this price.
The microphones set costed € 100 me, why deprive!
Jazz goes well on this guitar, JB, no longer present.
If you want to play very jazz, just put the dishes nets, for my part, I mounted 10 46 let versatile.
This gives the end a very pleasant to play guitar with a sound very usable and musical.
It does not replace a good gibson, but let's be realistic, there is a zero less in price.
I lug around everywhere because it can stand the shocks and fits well with any amp, it does not always choose in repeated rooms! <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="wink" />
Good planif a better quality bridge and we get a very nice guitar.
The sound is pure and open, not super woodland, musical and goes everywhere.
With a little over budget, you can try it with the best mics, but it's worth can not be the peine0
The sustain is quite surprising for a guitar of this price and the attack is very straightforward and precise.
Good Hollow body a bit better for my taste the new Ibanez.
If it were to do again, I will test two 59 seth lover or two to compensate for the very clear side of the guitar.
The SAN450 model is quite successful, the handle may be a bit "big" for digital prowess, but with a little practice.
The violin is good, even if the table seems glued directly on the ribs, like a tin))
Finishing Fretes is not exemplary, but this guitar deserves some improvements (see above)
A planif two good microphones, a good circuit to budget for a nice guitar worthy of the great.
Provide a budget of at least € 350 upgrade.
Highly recommended for non-guitar fetish musicians seeking a good horse, efficient, simple and coherent.

boobyz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Guitar Korean anne 80/90
ES335 Type maple body and neck
2 humbuckers (tour 2vol 2ton switch 3POS)
Mechanical kind TP6 Shaller
Bridge-type tune o matic
Good violin varnish rather thick
The handle is big enough, yet very enjoyable and easy to play.
We can adjust the strings low enough (not too)
There is no hole in the frequencies, sound is good, great sustain a fairly clear sound out of the instrument (requires Maple)
I can not talk about his branch "original" because I changed the pickups for a pair of Kami (highly conseills!)
The guitar has a very correct output level and breathable
the sound is more bright than 335 Team Classic 57 is a little less flattering in his clear but much more precise in crunch or saturated the neck pickup can play without being "muddy"
A guitar that follows me everywhere repeat, it is solid, and takes pleasure in playing it.
I pay this guitar 350 thus an outstanding price-quality ratio.
Sound (with Kami) is rather crystalline, but with the heat, the micro acute kami being absolutely fabulous, the sound of the best PAF
The bass is smooth and gentle, but prcis on the other hand it has a personality a little different PAF, but it is very musical.
The acoustic guitar is a hard coat in the upper medium, but it is reasonable.
The clean sound goes not bad, the crunch is divine.
The guitar has a very good sustain, it just lacks a bit of "wood gibsonnien, medium and low, but it is exploitable in great style.
In his clear, I prefer my Gibson, for crunch against the kami are more accurate than the Classic 57, particularly serious.
A convenient mule I have already taken in concert.
I have this guitar for two years, I sometimes want to sell it but I keep because it has a little trick (sustain) out of the ordinary.
the violin is very playable, it lacks a bit of nobility (it's not true), but we have fun with for investment.
foresee as a second guitar mule to preserve the great repeated smoky rooms.
Manufacturing 90s better bill than some more expensive skyscraper current.
Samick can be found from this period in France (the era sulks) by against the market is full of old American model, obviously, it is not mistaken.

pti6305's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is a semi-hollow guitar made in Korea in the 80s (dlocalisation Yamaha may be?).
Team is two humbuckers and a slecteur allowing you to choose one or the other or both simultaneously. Each has a micro potentiomtre Tone Corrector. TRS is simple but effective.
The handle is al possde the box and a button screws must be rglage.La rosewood and is bordered by a white border.
The neck is normal or too late or too pais, Access in treble is good. In retrospect, (20 years) I can say that I did not find many guitars equipped with a handle as normal as it
I will put a small BMOL on weight, in fact, it is quite heavy, it is a wide strap prvoir!
When you plug directly into an amp all lights, we get immediately sound an enjoyable little anne 50 typ. Pushing the bass with the neck pickup is almost like an acoustic guitar.
I play mainly in support of youth choirs with a Marshall amplifier type 2550 lamps all. I add an acoustic simulator pedals and a bit of cho for clean sounds. For more bluesy sound, I use the amp overdrive (overdrive red LED).
In both cases, there was the sound without taking the head: round, warm, the motion passes of suite.Cette guitar is made for a.Elle will get harder sounds Arian the dire straits or on heavy mtal though using some pedals?
It has another advantage in sound, is that you can play without plugging. The level is enough to work without breaking the ears around him.
It's ending for 20 years that I use and I have tried many other models in the semi-hollow Gibson and folk art than 335 and Gretsch. Honntement, I did not get any better for both the quality of the handle for the quality of sound. Many guitarists have tried and t surprised. In addition to the trs MODEL aging well, the sound improves with age. By cracking start against the potentiomtres (APRS 20 years) and it is difficult to clean (they are in the box). I'll have to give this a luthier opration. I do not know if Samick still makes half of the guitar body but it is clear: I care and I'm not prs to change!

Made In Korea.
2 double pickups each with volume and tone adjustment
A selector bridge pickup, neck pickup or the 2
It's a lefty model.
The handle can I find a thick but comfortable enough, the weight of the guitar is reasonable
The last cargo is easily accessible
I torque to a Marshall JCM 800 sound is very nice as you push too much of the gain distortion, she goes fast enough in feedback is the reason I buy an Ibanez FM260
But I always take pleasure to resume Samick, the sound is still warm
The big advantage is its fund of reasons can not scratch amp without disturbing those around him.
Sound rather round and fat, hand quickly gain feedback on a bit too high.
The best sound I get it on the Marshall all-tube.
Gonna make a 15aine years that I use. She served in concert, say, a little at home on all styles of music, from Sinatra to Nirvana .......
this is my first guitar "electric" is on this that I learned.
It is a gift for my 16 years. But if I had to buy it so I think I will ever be the choice.
