A brand new guitar made in the U.S. (it seems he just put the logo and the plate to qualify for the appellation). A mahogany body with a black finish, gloss nitro, without table carved maple as reported in Standard and Custom, which seriously reduces beast, a wide and flat handle "slim type" dot inlays and binding with, and the new key in "baked maple" - some would translate into a horrible "boiled maple" (beurck - is that marketers?), mechanics and two vintage P-90 pickups real plastic covers with black-toc as it doit.Un inverter 3 positions, two volumes, two tones. Nothing but super classic ...


... But also SUPER effective! The grip is perfect, just the right weight, stick a treat, virtually identical to that of a SG 61 reissue, which is in my opinion the reference, with access to acute, without limitation, ideal dimensions, very well made, a work of art. microphones "send serious wood." The neck pickup is both round, faithful, powerful, allowing all nuances. The bridge pickup is furious at will. THE rock sound par excellence. Add to that a dazzling sustain as if the violin was given to vibrate in unison with some notes and harmonics. Surprising. it sings, especially in large saturation. What's more bonheur.De junction sleeve body is positioned ideally, the guitar does not tune. the mechanical kind Kluson 14.1 are accurate and they keep the agreement. (not like some SG)


Rhythmic, jazzy lines, BLUES, ROCK, Hard rock. Everything sounds! Simply adjust the settings with onions volume and tone. It is out of all situations. WHat it with Koch Studiotone that sends furious riffs, or even with a small VOX 15W transistor, eaten, indulged, one begins to dream that we be, we want more.
Certainly, to return to the comparison made above, SG 61 with PAF 57 offers a little more heat soup or sustain (but you need a stopwatch to decide!), But almost 2 times more expensive, ... it does not so well agree.


I've had two weeks, but it took damn hours in a short time. When I tried it in store, it is immediately out from the crowd (even compared to LP "YOUR foo - foo" ..) Can not get rid of. Value for money: up to much.
Maple key needs to be well nourished at baseline (add paraffin oil 2 or 3 times in one or two weeks until saturation)
It is an instrument endearing. ^ My word be:
