So a partially hollow mahogany body and, importantly, a table carved maple. It means already empty, it sounds loud and sounds great.
Burstbucker pro microphones and rhythm lead pro, alnico5 and classic control panel. But modern pots are mounted on a print and the rest comes over to connect via connectors, it's super clean and easy to disassemble so. Cool.

Gibson deluxe mechanical, not sure if the agreement is held to the height of good looks but we'll see.
Only regret the serious mic does not provide an option to split, will have to work and it promises to be cotton ...

Provided with safe class for me.

UTILIZATION

First, the feel of the guitar is fabulous, almost raw wood that is unique in producing this kind of guitar copies included, besides that's why I took it.

The handle is polished enough, not fatigue and allows all, well done. The frets are wide and mostly flat, not common. Their edges are not quite finished, but mind that it involves tile, I'm surprised. Frets correctly installed, not one who breaks ranks.
Access ozégu very correct, and then I usually like to have a good place to put the left thumb.

The ergonomics are very good, a chamfer to our shores would be welcome but let's not quibble.
The body weight thanks to the dug is reasonable, it's all good.
In short it is excellent.

SOUNDS

When empty it sounds and resounds, and long. Hype found exactly that.
As acute microwave is placed traditionally in gigi, too near the bridge it sounds pretty loud bin not very pleasant for me. Solution of a half turn around and raise all the blocks a good end.
I shrug my pads as the serious, the goal is to have a more shrewd management strat (but just a little!).

These pro Burstbucker make me a much better impression than the endless 490/498, very smooth without sacrificing the dog and heat.
The separation of notes is important, always with a grain woods very strong, a bit hollow for micro acute.
The bass is accurate even to the fingers, it is hot but clean and quite smooth as well.
Both sets are very different sound, 3 real audible so many options.
Compressor with a slight funk going very well, surprise! (Not that much actually, I saw James Brown on his return on stage 93 (?) And his guitarist was using a les paul white all the way ...)

For clean, jazz, rock, this guitar is very heavy super. For blues I find too fat anyway, so I want the mic splitter serious.
However, a tube screamer, which automatically cuts the bass did the trick huh.

OVERALL OPINION

Perfect for playing in the nude, this guitar very organic. The Vatican disapproved I know, and I see one that blushes in the audience ...

For the same price I bought an almost complete crap made in Mexico (countries at the forefront of social progress and ecological) in competition (baja telecaster) ... This shows how honest Gigi plays the guitar on this!

Very well made, neat wiring, zero noise, nothing that motion, is not no contest for the price you will not be better.
The pickups are great, everything is relevant on this guitar, I love his side roots and original.
Okay, now I take off everything and I go back!

No, I will no photo, no kidding hey ho
