Value For Money : Poor
The Roxane Matt Design 200 is manufactured in China according to the specifications of the French brand Lâg. It is an instrument which is loosely based on the Gibson Les Paul DC (Double Cutaway) making a lot of interesting upgrades.
It is an electric guitar "solid body" mahogany set neck has been some changes since its release. Mine has a rosewood fingerboard with 22 boxes.

It has three knobs and a switch classic three positions.
Two potentiometers volume with push-pull function for each of the two microphones splitter separately (or together if you pull both), and passive tone switch Neck / Bridge + Neck / Bridge give this guitar a certain versatility.

The tuners are accurate and correctly reflect the agreement, the bridge way bridge Tune-O-Matic is equipped with rollers instead of traditional knives and cordent come hang at the back of the guitar following the very nice concept " string-through "deemed to have a positive effect on the sustain of the instrument.

Two humbucker in single coil and split just clutter the mahogany table. A space required if you want to have a little sound. These EMG humbuckers are signed but belong to the passive range of the brand.


The handle is it enjoyable?
This is THE main quality of this guitar. The handle is great.
Its format is really nice in hand, the profile is very well studied and here we have an example to follow. The guys at Gibson would do well to emulate, even on the Explorer that has a handle deemed "easier" than the Les Paul. Icing on the varnish, matt satin treatment is pure bliss to practice: both silky and fast.

Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy?
Yes, even if it is not the main purpose of a guitar of this size and with "only" 22 frets. Double notch with some access to acute and the heel is very discreet gammme this guitar.

Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
Double Cut the shape makes it easier quick play but the most surprising in this guitar, outside handle incredible is the ridiculous weight of this guitar. The weight of the guitar is not the quality of the sound, this guitar proves it. Lightweight and sustain high frank attack, ...

The sound is there and there.


Are they suitable for your style of music?
Absolutely. With split pickups you get nice combinations from emulation stratocaster (it is in the mind, even if it is not THE strat) the roar of heavy palm-muting very neo-metal. Guitar terrain. EMG passive pickups are very good, nothing to envy to Seymour Duncan except snobbery. I thought up a pair of EMG 89 (the same as assets) but ultimately I'm not convinced that it is really useful.

What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold", ....)?
Good clean round (humbucker neck), clean accurate (split sleeve), bluesy overdrive (humbucker neck), biting overdrive (split sleeve), although sequences arpeggios loose (split neck + bridge), well-rounded agreements (humbucker neck + bridge ), chopped screaming solo (split bridge), which scoured big riff (bridge humbucker), etc ...

With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I'm using that configuration "home studio" in an Pod X3 Pro or software simulations (Amplitube 3/Fender), Peavey Revalver, Torpedo.

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
Nothing to throw. This is a good instrument.


How long have you been using?
Two weeks, but this is my Xth guitar, I've had a lot of which frankly overpriced. To save quietly at home with good amp simulations is perfect.

Did you try many other models before buying it?
Many yes, you can see my review for more information.

What is so special that you like most and least?
I love everything except the fact that it is "made in china", I would have preferred an instrument made at home but not at the same rate.

How do you rate the quality / price?
Very good, especially used, paid the equivalent of 250 euros (exchange)
With experience, you do again this choice?
Absolutely. But next time I choose a Rox 'Bédarieux. The luthiers at Lâg really deserve their success and the brand has understood that by producing instruments outside France with high standards she would be very successful. Played well.
