I’ve used this beast in the studio exclusively, with a Boss GX-700 and a Blackheart Handsome Devil.
I mostly play indie rock/metal/blues, and it perfectly suits for such styles !
In the end, my guitar player wants to use it onstage, what a THIEF !!!
I use a 10-46 gauge with NYXL strings, and I get a fabulous sound out of it !
Of course it’s not a Traditional or Standard Gibson, but for such a low price it beats them!
I’m considering adding it Bach Knuckels (I think that’s how they write it ^^) pickups, after which the traditional and standars Lps won’t even be able to compare
Soundwise, what can I say, its Gibsonish ? And, with 490 T pickups !
I bought it for 350 €. It’s from 1996 – the year I was born
It’s not expensive, but I had to have the neck arranged, which cost me 35€ at a friend’s who’s a guitar repairman. The wood had evolved with time, the former owner was stupid, he wouldn’t take care of it. It has a hit mark somewhere, but It’s not obviously seen and doesn’t impact the normal use of the guitar.
Its price, wood quality, electronics, design (burgundy red with a black pickguard), neck
Its weight (I had to put Schallers on it), the tuners which are messed up due to its former owner storing it carelessly.
