Made in asia - TOM bridge - 22 frets - 2 micro Epiphone Classic 57 - 2vol, 2tones 3POS switch.

UTILIZATION

Super Channel for me fast and low Action - Not recommended for fragile backs (4.7 kgs) - access to average highs (like all LP) - you get a great sound LP with a slight lack of precision jump and average potato !

SOUNDS

With microphones changed for Gibson Classic'57 and split, the knobs CTS, condos OrangeDrop, mechanics Kuzon and especially a "flatness" of the frets done by a luthier: it was better than a real LP Standard Gibs (comparison made eyes blindfolded) for a cost of 700 Zorros (box with photo) instead of 1700 to 2200.

OVERALL OPINION

Purchased upgraded in 01/2012 with the project to achieve GLP Standard outside chaotic settings (strings, fretboard, frets, bridge) is a perfect violin. Of curls on all sides, bending the handle "almost inverted" hurt granted bridges and strings uncertain origin .... Paasage luthier in the imperative.
With the right pickups, and more "splitables" and electronic and mechanical quality is at the same level That a scratch 3 times more expensive. The downside could be the table "plating" maple instead of a massive table, which should give less severe and less sustain! .... The result is again surprising bass are present (and good), but also there is a 50% longer sustain. who knows why?

In addition, Pickguard removed (replaced by transparent film Ortega) Kluzon mechanical buttons "Crystal" and ThoTo box: It is BEAUTIFUL!
