Guitar made in Korea, the mechanics are English.
22 frets, details ...
* Alder body
* Grover
* Flamed maple top and flamed
* Maple neck
* Rosewood
* Bone nut
* 2 micros WVC
* Nickel finish
Notes are based on price, € 820 at California Music, to whom we should honor for creating a schedule for left.
Mechanical beautiful, beautiful guitar for those who love the retro look (it's actually improved a copy of a cheap guitar for years 60).
Pictured is my model, the P90 format (thank you for the clarification kinder_guano), just as impeccable.
We regret that there is still not a bit more sustain.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, it is played alone this stuff. Maybe a little snag with the heel that I find a little large to reach the high notes.
Guitar can be found ill-proportioned, but I like it.
Otherwise the right sound is vintage appointments, for against, porn actress and metal, go your way. The famous "big sound" is unclear, but it has its charm, I manage to regain a semblance of its N. Young through volume, overdrive and eq. thoroughly (no pedal), how should I say, it takes guts to!
I tried the same price a Telecaster made in Mexico, there's no photo, looks like another. The handle of the Italia is much thinner and more easily obtained grades. I also found the sound of the Tele Mexico much more bland.

SOUNDS

It is perfect for my style of music, I only use very little effect, but a Cry Baby it's like in '70!
I played with an amp bizarre, head of a GA-60 combo, so old that it is not referenced to AF, and a double baffle HP Fender 70s. It's warm, slightly inaccurate as I like.
Also tried with an old Ibanez multi-effects I was paid 300 EU, impeccable ... I have no other words ... I am not an expert ...

In short, in the words of a friend and sound engineer studio guitarist old adventurer is a gem (sic), he did not know the brand (it is rather Vigier and Gibson and Strato, one has not the same budgets !!!).

In short, I put 10 for those looking for that kind of sound and the quality / price ratio.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 months, I enjoy its sound, look and nuances that we can discover. For me, the ideal is to play with ropes Gibson 009. The guitar is a bit small and I like the big stuff, but I got used to it very quickly.
I also tried a Tele Mexico, a USA (it's another dimension). The acquisition was very complicated (it is a left-handed !!!), I will pass details, and I took a chance buying it without trying it ... I know it's not quite that. But I would do for that price, this choice with his eyes closed.
Value for money, for me is unbeatable.
