Mine was manufactured in Asia (I do not know where) and was destined for the U.S. market, I bought from a person who had been there (I do not know if it changes much, I don ' have never seen a European model).

The handle makes me think than my SG is classic Gibson. The junction should be at the 14th fret.

Mine is all solid, maple back and sides (of good quality) and spruce.

(All notes are made considering the price)

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice, quite close to that of an electric gibson, when you do not sound it's nice to find his bearings.
Ergonomics is special is the largest audio format I believe, so if you measure 1.2 m, on your way.
Access to acute is not easy but it is not really the purpose of a sound, and she has no cutaway. Besides, she is no longer sold with the cutaway is enough damage, the aesthetic is less fun.

SOUNDS

I play some acoustic, mainly for rock / blues and some folk.
She has only one sound (mine is not electrified) very American, it's really in the spirit of its big sister in Gibs.
I put on D'Addario medium (13-56 I think) and after a good setting the sound is really good. It's a bit hard to play at first (I was used to 10-52), but the sound is ultra-precise, powerful, was fine treble and bass, very, very deep (it surprised me, I had never heard it on an acoustic).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had about 2 years.
I tried / had a lot of noise before, and for the price I am completely satisfied.
Used it really worth it.
I like his low round and puissane general, not particularly bothered by its size.

I would do without hesitation that choice, perhaps to a sunburst!
