Korean guitar. Bridge tune-o-matic, microphones Washburn 2 volumes, 2 tones.


Handle very pleasant, even surprisingly pleasant.
A little heavy but well balanced. A super easy access to the treble.
Middle pickups, even if they are correct but that is the weak point in my opinion.


From jazz to rock, she said.
I installed it with Seymour Duncan SH1 and there is total transformation ..
Honestly, it amazes me this guitar. His bold, mild, jazz or rock punchy, it provides serious.
I play on a Tech21 amp trademark60 where I changed the original HP and the sound is rock as I like (this amp really deserves leans).
It takes good agreement.

To do that jazz, it just miss velvety serious. Although I am no expert on the matter


Purchased six months ago, I tried some type models 335 between 400 and 800 euros (Ibanez, Vintage, Washburn other model).
With a flamed maple table is already very beautiful. A little upscale with mechanical, easel and golden microphones.
A finish not perfect but okay. Some minor imperfections visually.

For a new price of 399 euros in parts of France (instead of 650) is 335 to buy a copy if you have a small budget.
Of SH1 is stuck there for about 160 euros and it was a guitar that sounds really. On leaving the store, I just had to tweak the action, the Truss and accuracy. But it was not bad set.

Recently, in rehearsal, she quite impressed his side world.

At current caught in some places to buy with confidence!
