Aesthetically it may be noted that the benchmarks are key type ES175 and the tip is more pronounced as the vintage, the "Flower Pot" on the head is emblematic of the Gibson L5 as the example.
Regarding the rest is all the same weight, handle, wiring pickups no surprise this is a LP, body and handle in one piece mahogany arched maple table. The head is an open book classic which is rare on the replicas.
Well balanced, the sensation is similar to a Gibson Les Paul, it plays very easily, just stick to the hair but not too big round the frets are properly polished and varnish absolutely no grip. A pleasure compared to nitro ...
No problem on this side the micro PAF replicas 57 are slightly dark but that is common on many LP, I think the wiring could certainly be improved, but overall the sound is very clear warm neck pickup and funky in the middle position and biting into next bridge. The tone is vintage and is very nice in distortion, here decanted, good harmonics and side edge of the sleeve. Nothing aggressive in his as are some modern microphones or ceramic.
In short, a very good copy, here is the road for a lot of different styles from Jazz to Hard Rock, this is the first model sold by Valley and Blues in Toulouse, he 10aine date of a year and frankly they have not done better since.
It is a good alternative for the budget because Gibson is a mark of prestige and often inaccessible.
