Audiofanzine FR's review

Custom77 London's Burning CS3 NY

- Rosewood fingerboard

- 22 frets.

UTILIZATION

Very pleasant neck with 60's profile. One of my favorite necks among all my guitars...

Typical Les Paul access to the upper frets... This means that you can get to all the frets except on the E and A strings where you'll reach only the 17th fret!

The weight of the guitar is pretty generous with at least 8.8 lb.

SOUNDS

But lets get to the point!

I play almost every music style but mainly crunch stuff like Led Zeppelin, etc.

Clean sound:

Both pickups (mini humbucker and P90) provide possibilities my other guitars can't.

For clean sounds, I generally like single coil pickups although they sound too slim and I find humbuckers sound too bright. Here, you get the best of both worlds...

The P90 pickup in the bridge produces a round and full sound.

The mini humbucker sounds tighter.

I don't use tone controls a lot and with this guitar I always turn them all the way.

Up to now I hadn't uses the center position on my guitars, but this guitar showed me the possibilities this position has to offer. To get a well-balanced clean sound I set the mini humbucker volume at max and turn the P90 volume halfway.

It surprised me how much fun it is to play Chris Isaak with a reverb (and the Bigsby :-p ...).

Crunch sound:

Perfect!!! The crunch sound is full and well-defined with a bluesy character. I get wild with Whole Lotta Love, Lemon Song, etc. I play with a small Ibanez Valbee amp and it sounds great when it's a bit cranked. Imagine it with a good tube amp and a 12".

I use mainly the mini humbucker for crunch sounds.

Distortion sound:

It's clearly not its best. The sound has not enough definition to play Metallica and the like... But it sounds ok for Stoner rock (Queens Of The Stone Age). This guitar made me start playing Nirvana again (Negative Creep, Scentless Apprentice, etc.) because of the dirty distortion!

I like every sound it provides with my PB!!!

It's also great with a Whammy pedal!

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it since January 2009 and after having had to return it to Custom77 (due to a broken toggle switch) I can't stop playing it!

The main disadvantage of this guitar is the bigsby tremolo system, which makes tuning unreliable (in the other hand I just installed new strings, so it might also have to do with that...). But it's definitely part of the style of this guitar!

I like most of all its looks (I love this relic version) and the clean and crunch sounds!

This guitar has it's own personality and it doesn't look like any other. I don't regret having bought it at all!

I didn't try it out before buying it. I chose it for its looks, the pickup combination and Custom77's reputation...

I wish them all the best and I thank them for their awesome after sale service... I might buy another Custom77 model, a Needless Pins or a Raw Power...

Just one caveat to this guitar

the nut is wrong, it is too high. So, it is harder to play.
my guitar is set, no problem on that side.
but if I normally grants when I play near the nut chords, notes sound higher logic ..
For comparison with a model in the price range view less
with a Squier Jagmaster I is no problem, the nut is as it should.

It is also nickel with my American Telecaster which is normal given the price range.

if any guitars at Custom77 are like that it would be a shame because it is really nice and it is well worth more ..
Well, a nut to change is not so much to be done by a luthier or decrease the original one.

I have a model with metal pickguard is the old black Neil Young.
Besides, I've never seen other brands and even Gibson's offer.
Certainly a unique guitar
KEEP ON ROCKIN 'IN THE FREE WORLD !!

This is the MODEL relic by the team of Custom77, inspired by Gibson Neil Young
http://www.custom77.com/html/produits-242-1.html

Here are CHARACTERISTICS found on the site Custom77
Guitar made in Korea

- Channel 3 pices mahogany (mahogany)
- Mahogany body (mahogany)
- Table Rabl (maple)
- Channel collbr /> - Profile sleeve end, 60's type
- Rosewood fingerboard (rosewood)
- 22 frets
- Mcaniques oil bath (Diecasting)
- Bigsby B70
- Synthetic Bone Nut
- 1 Micro Alnico "Mini77" type MiniHB
- 1 Micro Alnico "P77" type P90
- 2 volume buttons
- 2 buttons tonalitbr /> - a 3-position selector

UTILIZATION

Channel trs enjoyable, Profile 60's. One of my prfr among my other guitars ...
ACCS Same format in acute Les Paul ... Basically, the strings and the Mi, we can go up to the 17me box, on the ropes more acute, we can go anywhere!
At weight, it does well its 4 kg and it remains plant's good, it gives your body when you go! ;-D

SOUNDS

This is the heart of the matter!
I play a little bit of everything, but I like the crunch particulirement style Led Zep etc ...

Its clear
With two microphones (Mini Humbucker and P90) it offers great opportunities that I can not find on my other guitars.
In gnral, I like the clean and simple, even if I find it lacks a little body and the humbucker, I think they are too bright. Here we have the best of both worlds ...
The P90 (neck) offers sound quite round, well filled.
The MiniHB is much drier, but usable.
I do not play too much with the tone knobs in gnral, and I let them back.
However, until now I did not use too much of my other positions intermdiaires but the guitar it's like discovering the possibilities. To have a nice clean, I put my background and MiniHB P90 1 / 2 and the clean is well equilibrated vraimment!
All the time with my reverb, I found myself tripper of Chris Isaak (the Bigsby:-p ...)

Its Crunch:
Ben is the perfect! In Od, gives us a good crunch with the body and a well DEFINITIONS blues, I m'clate on Whole Lotta Love, Lemon Song etc ... I play an Ibanez Valbee small and slightly pushed it gnial. I dare not imagine even with a good amp and a lamp 12 '
For crunch, I use the plutt miniHB

His Disto:
Not his field. DEFINITIONS lack of stuff to Metallica and other style ... However, really not bad for a little Stoner stuff (QOTSA). Same with it, I went back to the nirvana (Negative Creep, Scentless Apprentice, ...) that require the disto dirty!

In fact I like all the sounds it can get out with my PB!
With a whammy gnial it too!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since January 2009 (REU 31/12/08 ...) and a return home Custom77 APRS (toggle switch cass I can not m'empcher of play!

What j'apprcie least on this guitar is the Bigsby p'tre in the sense that a little when he dsaccorde same (well I say that but I just changed the strings, then. ..). However, it is an integral part of the style of the scratches!

I prfre is its look (I love this version relic!) And in clean and crunch sounds!

Pay 600 a guitar that is like no other, I do not regret that choice and I do it again!
I have not tried before but I give it a shot to his mouth, his combination of microphones and to the reputable Custom77 ...
In fact, I wish them good luck and thank you for monitoring they could do when I have referred the scratches ... In fact, I may be back for Pins & needles or Raw Power ...

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The Old Black Neil Young!"

Custom77 London's Burning CS3 NY
everything has been said before

mine has a metal pickguard like Neil Young.

A unique look, she has a mouth.

I also find the headstock really nice compared to other copies like a Gibson Epiphone, for example, that I find ugly.

UTILIZATION

handle very nice, it's slippery, the coating does not tend to stick in the hand like a Gibson or Epiphone.

SOUNDS

His typed
It does not sound at all like a Gibson SG standard example

The neck pickup has a round, powerful, distinctive vintage. (very much in good clean when overdrive)
bridge pickup sounds pretty dry (as said before), very good in overdrive with a Marshall, it sounds very rock.
intermediate position, the mixture gives a very special sound
clean sound is of course more but still slammed typed "vintage"
I never really liked the intermediate position into overdrive, but this guitar is very interesting. Probably the mixture of two different sounds.

Difficult to define a sound, but I never heard a guitar sound like it.

OVERALL OPINION

There is no other brand or even Gibson moved.
Certainly a unique guitar as much for the look for her.
A Model Collector. Custom77 thank you to the team.
