Here I wanted an instrument with a larger sonic palette, but keep a vintage spirit and aggressive. I always found the look of the gold top soap bars fitted very attractive (Mick Ronson, Mike Ness ...) hence my decision.
The table and the pickguard has been embellished breads shots I do not know what tool, one would think due to chance and natural adventures of a guitar who has lived behind her.
I called back (full) and the sides are rusty brown color to remind the body of the original model. This echoes random marks and my belt buckle did the rest. Watch out anyway when recording, you can hear it in the amps ... And as it should be bare metal appears in the usual places (see article on my junior).
Loïc I unearthed a nice slim neck with rectangular markers he covered the back of a nitrocellulose lacquer brown (as you know). This is highlighted with a cream binding and the artist's head adorned me (from scratch, not mine, let's be clear) another multi-binding and has reworked the way gibby. Great job!
I even went up to ask the vice buttons knob out of another era. The only modern touch is the mechanical oil baths, but style tulips.
And how it sounds this goldie?
Ben as a Lepape already empty sound is full with outsized sustain. Once plugged into the sound possibilities are worthy of what I wanted. From jazz to rock well punchy all records seem affordable, the tone controls are here for, except perhaps the metal, forcing P90. But this style was not part of specifications.
This pan is the first I found the neck pickup really usable rock. He brought joy to all of my rhythm and I am more than keen to switch to attack the solos, it feels like an effect treeble boost so it potato. The intermediate position I rarely use, I find it food aggression but hey it could be useful.
So here is a diverse guitar sounds but do not expect to sound type 7. ... R with, this is not a v .... X. She does what she can do but she does it well and with his soul. Ah! the soul of Lepape you have not finished hearing about ...
