zamboulou's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a good scratch"

VGS Eruption Select
Guitar German manufacturing

Solid basswood body, for 350 €, you can imagine that it's good lime ...
ok this is not a mahogany / maple LP mahogany but a shovel at this price, need to ask questions about the quality of the wood (from, drying, etc..).
Maple set neck, rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets, inlays V VGS (or rather VIG) button

2 Humbucker EMG HZ
3-way switch, 2 volumes, 1 tone

Tune-O-Matic and Stop Tailpiece
Mechanical oil bath

UTILIZATION

Guitar weighs a little but this is a LP style .. access to 2, 3 last unclear notes, for (very) few times I go there, it is a mental and physical preparation!
Good performance of the agreement, knobs at your fingertips and quite progressive

SOUNDS

lime does not color the sound a lot, it is the shape and microphones that will really express themselves.
I will not describe the EMG but an idea, the bridge compares the SH-4 with less harmonics and less heat gain remains the same. the neck pickup is not great with distortion. They are passive.
The guitar is so versatile, funk to hard rock, with a high gain amp no problem for Metal (yeah it's EMG eh). playing with volumes, it gets away with a good blues / rock.
I play a attax preamp (clean and drive to transo tube) to a 15w lamps where I use the power stage and a princeton chorus (125w stereo) and attax 80 (all transo)

The sound may seem cold to some, the neck pickup is a weak point in the setting. But for entry-level "real" guitar, versatility is there and this guitar can be a gateway (and move towards a style) for someone who wants to get rid of its Chinese 100 €

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 years. In a similar line I tried other models (all forms, microphones, wood, etc.). Before buying but when the seller filed in my hands, I had a pinch. ..
This is a good guitar overall, but not light and versatile microphones in good order (a good mid-range)
Good balance quality / price! And especially ... it's mouth! This is a guitar that you see everywhere.

With the same budget, I will look at what is happening now and perhaps in Cygnus' must poke a little, but I know I will not regret this choice by repeating!

ricoute's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not good at all ....!!"

VGS Eruption Select
I will not repeat the description

Solid mahogany body, maple table
micro dble winding up niveaude output

design and type close to the paul standarrd
tune o matic Knight

factory in czech republic

2 volumes and 2 tonalites

UTILIZATION

rather classic handle end
les paul classic form

Surprisingly light weight ....., raising fears of an average density of wood or not a solid body (in room!

access to traditional acute

mic aspect of iridescent grown old and metal parts (mechanical bridge saddle mics not the best effect, to limit rather cheap!!

sound and well .... let's talk about .... because not TERRIBLE

I tried somairement I do not know if this is due to settings (mic set low enough height issue!

I bveaucoup hopes and frankly very disappointed, it should perhaps be expected based on a quite reasonable price

involved, the body is sorely lacking in relief rather clear, but not at all in the mind pauls with rumbling bass, even the vacuum resonance feature did not sound the pauls (I was one compares the pauls epiphone lspecial that it is astonishing and convincing because comparatively speaking Verily in the
his typed his reference, made with a still less subtle and less accuracy!

j "admits great disappointment, and I intend to try again, I tried a epiphone compared to pauls std (dearer too) a priori too much in the spirit of his pauls

test done on a fender blues junior, so a good amp lamp flawless marking

I'm not married to epiphone, and do not know what is the link with the previous Newbie yds, and unless you have the basic comparison and say nothing else tried priori whether, on gibson faded it supplants ( the faded looks better mic, but one body part without table reported e ceptible and mahogany body that make the sound of the famous pauls std faded it surprises me a little!

I intend nonetheless try another model vs. yds and keep abreast of my impressions

SOUNDS

not because I wanted to finally approach the grain of the spirit paf 57, a nd the GRAI lkes paul std, on this point

if there is some clarity but no brightness characteristic or the roaring of the serious pauls not sound fat


So its not typed without the sound quality of a demerit honorable but not ds mind pauls

no sound for me like this model

OVERALL OPINION

I tried it through a test and had come to buy to be honest!!

other models more Epiphone respecting the spirit and especially the sound pauls
(There is a Newbie who prefer the epi sg yds has faded, a sg this is not the one pauls, and after all not a real ear of eco eco faded!

finish rather good, but far less than flattering photos
NERM
subject to move the height of the mics, and try another copy is for now ... a disappointment!!

olivertender's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" wonderful"

VGS Eruption Select
manufactured in indonsie
type lespaul
Solid Mahogany
table Saddle vein (plutt finitionet rare as beautiful)
mcanique oil bath
Two high output micro artec vintage
2 volume, 2 Tone as a brief lespaul
vintage look all spices mtallique was an aged effect, this gives a lot of charm

UTILIZATION

the handle is trs enjoyable, but everything passes easily CCAA acute because we are on lespaul

it's heavy weight, it was really solid (and a massive mahogany table Saddle vein) in the hands, the proof is sutain lbr />
mcaniques take the agreement

the knobs when they play their RLES down the volume with the distortion, we get a clear view crunch
.

SOUNDS

then the sound must say I quite surprised t
I did not know these mics Asian artec
and the sound is fabulous (there really potato as they say)
there really gain in his foot is saturated, we will see the blues or rock hard rock.
it is also clear in one can even play jazz.
you can go from the mark knofpler garry moore ...

not envy a gibson especially considering the price.
it seems to have a good gibson in the hands of no more gibson does this finish l.

it is the only range with these lespaul select microphones, others have EMG HZ personal but it's good for the hard but a little too cold for the rest

OVERALL OPINION

I am happy with this purchase trs

I piphone sg faded with a gibson 498T micro

it really is night and day

it is more like a Gibson than a piphone

finished good and original, its really nice

Porschica's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" beautiful!"

VGS Eruption Select
Solid mahogany body
Spalted Maple
Mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard with inlays, 22 jumbo frets
4.75 "Pitch = 630 mm, width 43 mm nut
2x pickups Artec LPA-310-ASV Humbucker: Vintage High Output-Sound
3 position selector, 2 volume, 2 tone
Pearl-V VGS button
Tune-O-Matic and Stop-Tailpiece
Mechanical oil bath
Marine hardware Antique Silver (antiqued)

Compared to the price I put 8 / 10 and the vintage look is modern but still too good.

UTILIZATION

Thin(as much as my strat)
Access to the Treble is a little difficult from the 15th Fret and decent from the 19th especially for mid and bass.
In fact the guitar is thick with mahoganyand maple (wonderful with the gradient)
there are 2 tone and 2 volume, 1 for each position  I use the medium and which, I think, a little complicated the task (but this is just my opinion).
For the rest, the guitar responds very well and very clearly to the settings while the 3-position switch is conveniently located.
The shape is a classic lp and the weight is  ok without unbalancing the guitar.
weight is "lespaulien" ie enough to make me avoid standing too long ...
I would say about 4 pounds but I think that's what makes the charm and especially the sound of this LP

SOUNDS

in fact, coming into the sound that is just fabulous sustain while being specific enough.
this actually influences the sound of the amp and is perfect for rock blues and metal, while providing a beautiful roundness of sound clean (the microphones should be there for something)
but good clear sound I still prefer the normal one strat yds is not for the better AC and if my strat months at the bottom of the closet.
Personally, I find any setting on this guitar sounds good although I prefer the rhythm position with coarse grain and there the sound is just "perfect" on my Vox VT40 +

OVERALL OPINION

Well I bought it just five days ago so I may be missing but still recoil final note I put 8 / 10
Level look, nothing beats the real view but I find it beautiful.
value for money is very good (the jack is quite loose and needs to be tightened and 1 tone knob rub the body if not finish level 8 / 10)
   this is my third guitar after 2 strats almost identical.
