UTILIZATION

The neck is fairly pais, pleasant but not very fast.
CASC is medium to acute, depending on the size of your fingers!
Lgre, congestion is soon forgotten
The sound? I bought for the price (Brad 249) and Seth Lover pickups legend. But beware, the floating bridge and mounting flat files-accumulation with Seth Lover and completely hollow body give its very medium. Magnificent sounds clear, very jazzy, but it can be more rock, especially on the bridge pickup. Sustain and of course the feedback cl ...

SOUNDS

I do not really play jazz, but it sr, it is sized for a. Sounds hot, very smooth on the neck pickup, a little dry on the rack.
For the blues, a condition for me to avoid the bends in a tone at the top of the handle (pulling lev accumulated a montage that, my opinion does not facilitate this exercise for my small hands delicately ) is very good. For rock not extreme, it works well too, playing on the equalizer in the receiver to erase excess "of the medium (a change of strings must also rectify this characteristic).
Amp: H & K 60 DFX
In arpges, sounds clear, it's really great.
In Lger crunches, impeccable. In saturation amount is less (although the bridge pickup, you can go far enough all the same, but I think after a set of strings would be better less jazzy)

OVERALL OPINION

I have since July 2008.
She is very beautiful, pais varnish finish excellent (especially compared to the price pay!)
She is very kind, few versatile and suits me because I have a low range Whale, modifies GFS, which is rather versatile, then so much character acqurir guitars Dr. and Different.
I'd never touch a hollow-body before it.
The quality-price ratio is good dj 700 (original price), very good 500 (the price because of the ractualis mvente), while say 250 (the price of 2 microphones at Toto!)
I will ever be the same choice, with a little more aware of his character hot soup that must be respected.
