Guitar made by kore, but as I have read from Zakk Wylde "I Will not put my name on a piece of shit."
This is a Les Paul with its advantages and disadvantages (which is nothing new). Access to acute acoutumance requires some, but you get done quickly. The body is a single piece of mahogany (not the infamous sandwitch alder / mahogany other Epi)
The pickups are EMG HZ, who very promptly pleasantly surprised. As against the knobs are crap, they spat at the end of two months. Nothing serious, just change them.
The guitar was perfectly set, but I took it all to accommodate my tastes.
The finish is good, the neck and the frets are well finished, there are some missed in the body, but it must look closely to perceive it.
The look is excellent, still has work to not look ridiculous!

UTILIZATION

The handle is big, but very comfortable. It's bigger than a type 60 and thinner than type 50.
For sounds, original they are very hot, surprising for the EMG.
I did a little mod, very simple. After the information on the site of EMG, I removed the pickups (super simple, thanks to the connectors) and myself appercu one thing. The micro acute an H4A (alnico), is actually a 85 a liability and serious, a H4 (ceramic), is a passive 81. I reversed the two for the H4 and H4A in acute severe. The cofiguration is an exact replica in passive assembly active. I do not really understand the purpose of this "inversion" of origin, because for once, the harmonics are best given in the acute, with much more precision and speed passages for fat (thank you magnet ceramic), and the microphones gets much more serious soft (typical alnico).
The sound is perfect as this, and even closer to our loved Zakk.

SOUNDS

Plugged into my 30 "birthday, it's a mythical couple is together. The sound is typed gibson, and Angus Zakk, everything is possible without denote. Crunches are a little hard, but are very precise, same for the clean. In all thoroughly, the beast awakens, the vibrato is monstrous, whistled harmonics you take a walk back from hell. Close your eyes and you imagine Ozzy jumping everywhere.
Remains to invest in a blonde wig .... ;)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year and a half and is dejenu my main guitar, before a Supreme Lag The Beast, however excellent. I can finally make arpeggios that rings true (the default big floyd), vibrato, well, finally, it is not much, and with it comes a work without it. In addition to the guitar is given no matter what (except when the strings are new, obviously).
The price / quality ratio and excellent. I do not regret my purchase, and do it again without problems.
