Gibson factory in USA
22 frets, two humbucker cut
Slecteur 3 positions (round, intermediary, bridge)
1 rglage volume and tone for each microphone
Channel collbr /> Faded no varnished finish !!!

USE

The handle is rather pleasant
The access to acute rather difficult, more freights are fairly Paisses rapprochs and what is not easy but with practice it fits.
The handle weight is consquent is a Gibson ... But he does not pose a problem.
Ct interressant is the weight of trslger body for guibson is a veritable asset mahogany used is not dense o reduces its weight.
The sound is easy to modulate, do not look for hours.The her neck pickup is very typ blues, bridge pickup it is typ rock and intermediary position obtained by its clear sound Brilant very apprciable.

SONORITS

It suits very well to my style of music from rock and blues, but do not put big esprez saturation is not his thing.
I use an amp and Hughes Kettner Vortex but it is not suitable, but the sound is correct, the better I pence is to use it with a Fender or Vox amp all-tube that I have been apprci during my visits DIFFERENT music store.
I mainly use a Boss DS 1 Distortion that suits him perfectly and the clear sound of the amp is a guitar that not too appreciates the effects but that said it's not the worse for that like me appreciates a pure ...

NOTICE GLOBAL

I have since December 2005, the ct's more sound, shape and vintage spirit
The least its the Faded finish with paint that wears quickly and gives a shiny effect but is not uniform !!!! and also pulling the strings of excessive I reduce council to facilitate play in the treble.
I tried before acqurir Epiphone Les Paul Goldtop one but it's not such a guibson remains a Gibson, I tried the SG Faded remains classic at the sonorits.
Qualitprix the report would be reviewed to finish even if it's a Gibson price should be revised downward in the 900 euros it would be more affordable.
If I were to do it again I would go Fender but I do not find a pence guitar with a personality like this Les Paul DC that is truly unique ...
