Made in Korea, I think. Purchased in France on promotion. Pickups Seymour Duncan SH1. Great sound
Nice and fast round. Easy to play.
I play rock / blues style Rolling Stones, Creedence, ZZtop but also the classic blues. The guitar is perfect. I like the clean and slightly overdriven sounds. I play a Fender Blues Junior III and sometimes blues driver pedal. A little harder to adjust in very distorted sounds, but it works anyway ...
I played with for 8 years. It holds its own against all my other guitars (I have a gibson SG, a TV and a US Mex Strat with pickups Van Zant Blues). I tried a Gibson 335 that sounded also very good (a little more distinctive maybe ...) but whose handle was less pleasant.
His failure is really minimal balancing.
Excellent value for money compared to a 335 that not sound much better, except for the vintage models vintage 5 or 10 000 euros !!!
I would do this choice. Plus I like the "mouth" of the guitar.

Cocodyrock's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?
22 frets rosewood fingerboard, Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups original neck and bridge (SH1N AND SH1B)
- What type of bridge?
- What are the settings?
2 volume 2 tone 3-position selector
- What type of race?
Maple set neck
I put the note at the Max features There's really nothing to complain
- The handle is it fun?
- Access to Acute easy is it?
easy about the same as a les paul to give a point of comparison
- Ergonomics is good?
Guitar 1 / 4 cash rather imposing but light, good grip, by balancing against the poor, ca side looks round
- Gets it easy to sound good?
2 Seymour Duncan copy of the legendary bam, you plug it puts the knobs up and go
- They are suitable to your style of music?
in my case from blues to rock to hard rock Gentillet thanks to the 2 humbuckers
- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I tried it on a marshall marshall 4x12 cabinet with mg100hdfx and a ibanez valbee 5W lamps. I preferred the sound of the Ibanez lamps being cleaner and precise allowing to take full advantage of this type of guitar. the marshall sound good anyway but obviously much more bold, after all depends on what kind of music you play and the result you want.
- What kind of sound you get and with what settings?
with the distortion in the neck position sound is exellent, warm and precise, with great presence, well fat bridge position, center position I find it a little rough while remaining more than adequate.
I rarely used the clean sound so I refrain from giving a view on this subject
- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
it is crystal clear for me I play almost exclusively in the neck position I find the sound exellent solos sound perfectly big riffs are precise and powerful, we distinguish each note (and every wrong notes) accurately. if I seek a more bold the microphone stand is very good but for me if I should play in this case I plug in my les paul which is in its register for this type of sound
I put 9 for the sound that is very good in general without being either the best ke I had the opportunity to hear
- How long have you use it?
- What is so special that you like most and least?
I like its ease of play and handling, the sound of the neck pickup, his pretty face
I like a little less ... bah nothing, it is not perfect but has not real defects
- How would you rate the quality / price?
€ 450 ° for a guitar equipped with original Seymour Duncan pickups, comes with hard case, strap a leather cord j / d and a set of strings I think it's hard to find better value market prices
- With experience, you do again this choice?
yes without hesitation to win at least lotto and be able to pay me a gibson es336
This is a great guitar in its class obviously if you play death metal or something like that fodra refer you to another model but as I said above for jazz, blues, rock and even hard rock if you look for a hollow body guitar not too expensive you can go there I think you will not be disappointed
