Manufacturing USA, in the factories of Nashville Tennessee, 200 were theoretically produced from 1987 to 1991 but met all models used are dated 89, Gibson there would have been only 60 copies in circulation.
Manufacture of high quality both in terms of materials and the build quality.
Equipped with a Kahler bridge of excellent quality and a blocking system of rope at the saddle.
The peculiarity of this guitar is that it borrows the handle to explore,
Mahogany set neck rosewood fingerboard 22 frets Rounded profile, and wide end, a real highway ... It's really great fun to play, you get used right away.
Basic setting since it has a knob for volume, one tone and one for the 3-position selector for the choise of microphones.
It is equipped with two microphones gibson the HB and HB-L-R dating from the days when Bill Lawrence was working at Gibson. Excellent mics for rock / hard rock, for they are against very specific and do not forgive much, beware of false notes.
As I said before, this is the most enjoyable race I have met, to the extent that even large fingers will feel comfortable, I also have fender and I find myself cramped when I return, I need a small adjustment that is not the case in reverse.
It is very light for a Gibson, with his massive body accajou, the reasonable thickness of the ringtone maker which it borrows the body is there for something.
For access to acute, cutting the body, the thickness of the guitar (unless lespaul), the absense of heel at the set neck makes access very easy.
For sound, we have three very different position.
First of all, this guitar sounds even when not connected, this is the first thing you notice. The resonance is really amazing and the sustain is not far behind.
Otherwise the sound is powerful regardless of the selected micro. We have three grades with the three position, the bridge is very sharp, the position INTERMEDIATE Christaline wants to be, almost the fender and the neck pickup is very round and warm Gibson clearly typed.
It suits me perfectly, I play with a chorus as well as different distos. The pickups sing whatever the level of saturation, they collect and keep a good definition, I am mostly cover Rock, Pop, Hard Rock.
I play indifferently on a Mesa Boogie Studio 22 combo amp or rackmount (peavey tubefex velocity + 120). In both cases it is very clean and it's sending heavy, both in its clear that its saturated.
I use it for 6 months and it really is bliss. A Gibson atypical, unusual, without the disadvantage of weight (lespaul) but without compromising on the sound that is in the spirit of the brand.
I really like everything about this guitar is just the best of both world, a mouth of hell, a handle unusual, powerful sound and everything with a very reasonable weight.
With experience, I do it again but this choice is so rare that I do not have this opportunity again.
