The handle is it enjoyable? Of all good, a mix between a strat neck and ibanez. Rather thin, flat and small, as saying the handle promotes fast play and rhytmiques equally nice with a beautiful flecked appearance.

Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy? Nothing hinders access to the latest frets and bends are not difficult. (To see for small hands)

Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)? Necessarily mean that less light guitar ibanez saber but enough so that the weight does not make it feel too, forms tightly fitting body. You can play like crazy with floyd and nothing moves, the tuning is very stable.


I play many different styles and the guitar is pretty versatile while keeping its well-typed.
I plug it into an amp Peavey Classic VTX (1980) and no doubt the plug on an old peavey tube like mine or a fender and found the famous brown sound of EVH. Paradise! I also tested on a ENGL all lamps and the sound was not bad at all.
As for sounds, there was a mixture Fender / Gibson and good resonance. A wide range of options is available with the pickups and switch positions. We spend the fat in a clean and slamming to a distortion in the treble well detached.

Just one thing we must manage its settings the bridge pickup is loaded into acute and can easily become garish.


Bought recently without really trying, but no disappointment undoubtedly a very good choice.
I tried many models ibanez prestige and premium fender.

Most? Versatility microphones, sustain, and held floyd agree, the handle, the sunburst finish very pleasing to the eye, the knobs volume and tone and finally the bar trusroad directly accessible at the bottom of the handle without having to relax the strings.
The least? The guitar does not forgive errors game (this is a blessing in disguise) and height not adjustable microphones.

Both say report quality / price, my store vendors have struggled to believe it!
Fly box with a very classy bonus. A choice as it looks.
