    That is, the characteristics that I found:
    The so-called mechanical precision are absolutely not do, plastic / metal low-end
    Not splittable humbucker (2 son, low magnetization, has a non-removable center pin molded ===> see my opinion on the subject at the end)

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is great, nothing to say.
    Nevertheless, it must always be set at the trussroad, especially the Nut is a disaster.
    I explque:
    string original 9/42, string height acute home on the first fret = 0.45 mm ===> delirium. therefore necessarily false guitar on the first 3 boxes.
    Height of the strings on the first 3 frets = 0.25 mm. Strings verge on the first 2 frets ...

    It was therefore necessary to readjust the nut on the underside and disassemble. Another solution and replace the nut and re bled all the strings.
    For your information, I changed the strings to 10/46, the trussrod was set 2 times and the mechanics were replaced. Now it works perfectly.

    If you do not make these adjustments yourself, hope that your dealer knows it.
    Too bad for those who have purchased on the net!!

    SOUNDS

    Compliqés not, they are shit ...
    I tested on a Roland Cube RX, a Yamaha THR10 amp and a Tube Black star HT1R.

    Let me explain:
    Impossible to touch a rope without a huge buzzing apparaisse.Pas it good!
    3 position selector faulty jumps alone to return to the center and therefore bad contact. Not good that!
    Potentiometers that crack ... bad.
    As for pure tones, very average, brouillones where all frequencies are mixed, not allowing her to get really clear, despite an output level of microphones not that high.

    Want to take the guitar on the wall!!! I did not.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Purchased in December 2012, I had to replace everything on this guitar.
    Here are the changes:
    Replacement of two microphones with a Seymour Duncan Alnico 2 Pro Chavalet and a gibson 496R in neck.
    Replacement by three potentiometers models worthy of the name, the 2 volume with push-pull
    Replacing the selector 3 positions
    Reffection and replacement of all electrical wiring, the wire from the selector being crushed / pinched under the Bridge Pickup
    Registration of Nut and modification bleedings
    Two trussrod adjustments had to be necessary
    Mandatory replacement of mechanical ...
    Using the Dremel to the inside of the box to allow proper positioning of the son and prevent them make crushed by the microphones.

    Total cost of the operation about 350 euros +, note that my dealer for over 30 years in the guitar I did not take labor for these odifications. I efffectué more than half myself.

    Now the guitar is a marvel, but all it took effort to do so, I think that's a lot! I now love this guitar, but it cost me over 600 euros, without labor oueuvre.

    So we say thank you that? Well thank you Mr. Lag.
    In any case, never in my life I will not buy a guitar Lag, especially as I saw easels loose on acoustic and other incidents on the mark.

    Last pampers, lightning total in-store, went home with!

    China of course, 22 frets, bolt on neck, strings through the body, mechanical reliability, adjustable bridge in all directions, two humbuckers in the resin molded non-and split-, two volumes, one tone, 3-position selector also misplaced than Gigi.

    The body is thinner than in the, not reported in Table Maple either. But it is not flat so far, and very pleasant.
    Polish body glitter, satin matt but for the handle, felling in-iron-tional efficiency and speed. More specific. The frets are jumbo, polished, too cool.
    Lag profile is fine, it is almost the same as my folk lag (d66ce) last year and almost the same as on my lag made in …

    Lag profile is fine, it is almost the same as my folk lag (d66ce) last year and almost the same as on my lag made in Toulouse in 1985.
    So we see that we are dealing with a multi-recidivist. To our delight!

    This class gives off a terrible imperator, simple and tasteful, very small bomb if you get the idea ...

    UTILIZATION

    Guitar balanced standing to sitting, light weight, perfect access ozégu, very stable and precise mechanical, it's Christmas.
    No control of cabbage, three positions zero noise, we manage everything runs short tranquillos.

    It offers the possibility to agree well below because the bridges have a good range of adjustment, with Gigi you do not dare move for fear of false harmonics ...

    SOUNDS

    A vacuum it sounds a bit thin, almost telecaster (if you look: bolt on neck, traversing ropes, bridge large area in contact with the body ...), the rather severe set back but good sustain. So enough medium, with a pretty slamming, the nervous girl.

    The pickups are belcat (good manufacturer of pedals, spring reverbs and other trinkets therefore competent) embedded in the resin so little prone to unwanted feedback. I did not, however, played very hard again, by not notice against microphonics either.

    The sound is like the classic tandem seymour (jazz jeff beck) but is very round and pearl set in a serious and rather nasal bridge medium soloist. Less aggressive than the SD sh4, fewer harmonics.

    So on a conventional amp you will not make rhythmic hard to beyond the grave, but on one front and co are no reasons not to do it as these amps require their signature sound.

    In serious clean is great as it is beaded and hot while being accurate.
    The surprise is that this imperator excels in rhythmic funk, sacred architecture gives a slamming in the attacks.

    I would say that for the total it would suffice to change the bridge pickup for a shadow sh680 (see my opinion on the thing) and there you have the ball for an absolutely ridiculous price.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's addictive this thing, impossible not to keep his paws on it. Such ease of play is not often without even talking about the price.

    I had a 500 roxanne fairly upscale lag, but china, and it baffles me to level selector and jack that I had to change. I did the imperator in the past month, I will update as needed, but we've been warned.

    So total favorite, and I have yet 2 The Gigis, and what emerges is a lag that does not copy the original so much better as a result is relevant at any point of view.
    The imperator 100 level allows more rhythmic funk, allows other tunings, is more precise micro serious, is more comfortable, the frets have much better finished, and especially insists the agreement.
    It's starting to do much in his favor right?
    Attention trolls to attack! Take cover!

    SOUNDS

    the pickups are not bad for this price range, not tested enough for decrires accurately. but it sounded pretty good

    OVERALL OPINION

    three models of the store, none was operational. the least we can do when you buy a guitar that's what works and what is resolved. we feel that all the fittings are of very poor quality and manufacturing sloppy damage she's so pretty
    the coup was a yamaha aes 620 of occas the back of the store, for the same price ...
    there was no picture ...
