overall the previous opinion is very good, I'll just make a few points
- Body 3-piece mahogany glued, no table. assembly is performed masterfully (a central core and two wings reported in my case). I remember that we wind gibson LP which includes 5 pieces of mahogany for the body and the assembly of which is stashed in the table, and over € 1200 ...
- Unlike a Les Paul Junior, the neck, mahogany, rosewood, is not glued but screwed. The assembly quality is simply impeccable with beveled heel for easy access to acute. having the string through more than compensates for this assembly in terms of sustain. this guitar has a place and a stunning vacuum resonance.
- The overall quality of the hardware is simply outstanding in terms of the price of the guitar, and even forgetting the price of the guitar. all is blackened metal in the ground, beautiful, not less oxidation, everything is adjusted to the millimeter microphone. even the jack of the same metal, is electrosocket type referred to in the body (this is what I do I install on my personal Tele ... more dear). It's simple, I have 10 guitars, all more expensive than this one (fender, G & L, vox, eko, ibanez ...), and on this point, as well as varnish, it is superior to all my other shovels, and clearly several notches above a junior LP ...
- A single volume control with a TV like pot still in the same great metal with glass dome diamond point ..... if so ... on stage, between the coating and the famous pot that sends flashes of light when it hangs a lawsuit, we do not see you .... otherwise, I usually always optimize my electronic guitars, well not .... volume is very gradual, the pot does not play and will not unscrew (I play a lot with the volume, I've never tightened). amazing ...
- One mic in the bridge position. it is quite the microphone, if you like it ... very large output level is close to the metal stain buggers well .... sacrament should lower the volume to attack Angus properly ... we can forget for clear sound ... However, this very powerful microphone is much warmer and a hinged fender enforcer for example ... I admit that this kind of microphone is not my cup of tea, and that's the only thing I changed on this guitar (I had even identified and purchased for this). So, like the previous poster, microwave replaced by P90, a Custom SP in my case, and I must say that the end result exceeds all my expectations ....

UTILIZATION

as in the previous opinion, handle very easy to play, perfect hoop, cutting the handle allows easy access to acute, unlike all the LP ...
When the sound, given the simplicity and quality of this guitar, equipped with microphone for you, you either have sound or you put the triangle ....
Anecdote, I'll have to take a picture of the head of my luthier when I told her the secondhand price of this guitar, and the head is still lying when I told him the price or was it the new ... Finally, after a change of micro fact, I had to withdraw from her and pay strength so he burst out of the country to play with punk ...


SOUNDS

I talk about my use with the SP custom P90. given the quality of the violin, the hardware and electronics, with the P90, I have more than I hoped ...
I wanted to start a roots, simple and rock & roll guitar, I spotted this model to upgrade to P90, and .... well I can play as the country with, picking folk, bootleneck, in fact any form of music that requires precision and articulation in the treble, and the twang ... And in the rock record is also very versatile. ACDC to stonner, from punk to edgy British pop, everything goes except the very fat, but this mixture guitar mic known to be fat anyway ... As the volume control is important. amp essential course (koch in my case) lamp.
And death metal of death that kills granted eight octaves below, with the right amp, who knows? but it'll be probably much better with the original microphone that is made for it.

OVERALL OPINION

used for more than 6 months, I have 30 years of guitars behind me (I've seen a hell of a lot ....) and I have 10 at the moment. It became one of my main guitar ...
I love everything about this guitar.
One complaint, it is not quite expensive in terms of its overall quality ...
The value for money is exceptional.
PS: it is often mistaken for its cheap Samick "image" ... However, this guitar has been designated by a defector from gibson. Samick is the Korean company violin (or more Japanese violin) origin and, in the 90s, its production capacity was such that it produced 50% of world production of guitars ... obviously guitars badged with other more prestigious and more expensive brands ... I'll let you look, you will be amazed .... So when Samick "fun" to get a guitar to its name, you can be assured of amazing instruments (see the series of Greg Bennet, for example) ....
