Check out Miconmac among rightists who carefully explains the ins and outs of this guitar. Mic thank you again!
I tested a bunch of kind Epi Sheraton, paul, Dot, SG, etc ... it is fine, it's a real model and not a replica Epiphone Gibson ... unlikely though that her cousin Gibson ES330 is the ...
Apart from a violin shop near a cutomer, The neck is 3 pieces plus 2 additions to the head, polyurethane varnish say ... polyurethane, an entry-level hardware, it was still a beautiful guitar that pleases the eye at the opening of Pouche. Mine is natural color and veining of the soundboard, plated maple is not ugly.
For cons, the ratio of the instrument is great. This is where this guitar is almost bleuffante.
It has a guitar with a size 1/4caisse lightweight! it looks a little side handle for balance when strapped, but it provides a max and immediately gives a short side ... John Lennon
A big plus for the handle that has a nice U-shaped profile, slightly round, not too big, very confrotable, but unfortunately a little elastic button on it with rosewood inlays trapezoids, size is quite frets medium round, I recommend a tyrant 0.10.
The trapeze tailpiece and tune o matic is ok, last p'tit cool thing, the knobs are progressive.
A blank guitar is already something. normal is a box completely empty and that sounds, we can play it unplugged style dry.
Once connected ...
Let's say the overall sound of the scratching is quite round. Jazzy bluesy neck pickup very hot, and even a small gain level already gives a semblance of lovely sweet crunch.
Combining the two pickups give a great sound quite Rhythm medium very typical rock n 'roll, and tape over the mic Bridge in the aggressive, sharper but with a round still there.
It is in any case its a very understandable in the agreements or lead, all notes agree, it is!
We are open Beatles without bad clichés like "one would think" but there are many of the direct sounds hoarse and naturally saturated.
A great demo of this guitar is the McCartney Live at Abbey Road where it is used for a recording on the go p'tit ... http://youtube.com/watch?v=vRq1JtvaG78
The choice of the amplifier is critical to have a record worthy of the name is a guitar that requires a clear view defined limits but not too crunchy. She will handle the saturation alone is beautiful and I think it's really his strong point! (Small correction along the way, you also take pouvet of the largest sound, it deveindra a beast racing but do not let go!)
There is no doubt that more could be found in the amount range.
For approx 1200euros, I think the choice of Elitist would be good. The woods used are much better and this time, they resonate and live. there is also the John Lennon 65 that looks absolutely beautiful and offers a true re-release of old E230TD with the righteous measures, varnish and small nitrocllulose détatils vintage, a little more ... or when an original, we find several kinds with one or two micro, trapeze tailpiece or Bigsby vibrato or Epiphone, often finish in Cherry, Cherry Sunburst or Vintage Sunburst .... Enjoy!
But where it is, it is beautiful and gives a lot of fun!
You're agree Mic?
