- In which country she does doing? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
Mine is a 2008 model, makes the Custom Shop (it seems to me that before 2004, these guitars were produced in standard workshops)

- How many frets, what kind of microphone and their configuration?
22 frets, 2 humbuckers 490R / 498T

- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
Fixed bridge

- What are the rglages (volume, Tone slecteur micro ...)?
A volume / Tone by microphones + three switch positions
These components are of very good quality made to last in time.

- What type of race?
Hose-like rounded which is well in hand

USE

- Is the handle enjoyable?
Question subjective .... personally I'm more comfortable on the handle on a flat handle typ Ibanez. Once rgl action is very low and without frieze.

- The access to acute (desti- nations most recently freight) is it easy?
Is clearly not an ergonomic guitar on this map. But ... I personally played some solos between the 20th and 22nd in the box so I mad.

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
The guitar is heavy (4.6kg) but with a good strap passes, even during long RPTES or concerts.

SONORITS

I play mostly rock so it fits perfectly. Whether its clear or on saturated it provides!

Laney VC30 + Blackstar HT Dual

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for 6 months.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I like the particulirement sonorits and aesthetics of the guitar.
I like less weight and ergonomics compar a Start, but it is a sacrifice to make if you like the sound.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Oh yes ... I had two Gibson LP Standard + Japanese (Tokai, Bacchus, OBG ...)

- How do you report qualitprix?
Clearly bad new. As used against it is rather good.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice ...?
Oh yes, it's perfect.

Regarding the advice I've read below:

- Those who complain about the finish: a guitar to try before you buy. When we can put more than 2000 in a guitar one is more 50 train ... Indeed some guitars are poorly finished, but at the Custom Shop (> 2004) is rather rare.

- Dissolves varnish guitar .... and everything is cast: why did you buy, you'd lose money? With the varnish, it is actually soft, marks quickly, but the nitro lacquer allows you to leave the wood to breathe (unlike plastic coatings that form an opaque shell around the guitar).

- Those who say c'tait better before ... I have a lot of custom test before taking mine and he has very bad models in all periods. It must arrter with gnralits in this genre and TRY!
