Ravenblood finish, the only available at the moment, dark red varnish on a table transparent flame trsrussi really!
Clearly, we are left with a guitar that closely resembles what is done in ESP / LTD, the same little prs Quipp that EC1000, except that the key to b VIG is not the much more enjoyable, and the EC1000 possde handle 24 cases, against 22 for the VIG ...
J'enlve a point to quibble, I prfr of mcaniques Sperzel, blocking is more fun, here is a mediator or turn with a screwdriver on top of mcanique. ..
Must be honnte was a good big Eclipse hands, it's heavy, a sounds, it's not a scratch of shreddeurs, but super comfortable in almost total handle. Addicted to sweeping of boxes refrain Most recent internship ...
Mahogany and EMG are trs great job, standard palette of sounds!
I play a little bit of everything on DIFFERENT types of amps (lamps, hybrid transistors and software), a ringing everywhere! I finally have a real russi amplitube2 sound!
I am a salesman in a music store, the pass is REPRESENTATIVES yesterday to show me, I t is going to bluff this skyscraper trs bad ... I broke down and I keep to myself, at the same time, considering the price: around 750 quivallentes for benefits or to suprieures MODELS LTD revolving around 1000 -1100!
For now, this is a hot opinion, I spent a few hours on it, but it's typically the kind of scrapes that requires getting used to ridicule, she tamed her own, provided that 'we know what to expect: a massive guitar, heavy, hell that sounds but not fits all styles of play
If the screech and the spirit are of the same level in this SERIES, I may broaden the family ...
Finish: Almost top. The paint on the head and drooling a little black-white segregation tends to be not very uniform.
Mechanics: this is the first time I fell on mechanical blocking and is very practical. Small flat, to insert the string, it takes some time to rotate 360 ° mechanics and wait for the "click" before finally inserting the rope.
The mechanical or tend to become loose and a little bit of each key is required 2 changes of strings, but it does not impact the sound!
In VIG they have not skimped on the details, it's heavy, very heavy. play up more than two hours require a shift in the massager after the fact. it reminds me some Les Paul Custom ...
Access to the most acute notes is quite easy even if a notch a little sharper would not refuse!
Regarding the use of microphones, it is very easy to get a multitude of simply playing his volume knobs.
Personally I play the big metal work and there: no problem, although the reference micro serious bass but still very versatile in the treble!
Middle position, nothing to say a full sound, very stoner (I use a Fuzz + Flanger and I feel like playing Kyuss)
Regarding the microphone treble, very sharp, super precise, leaving little room for error even with a heavy distortion!
I play on a 5150 combo and using the distortion of the amp and DI no problem even at high volume blast!
Its definitely a killer even in clean, good susatin, a clear, precise and very nice bass.
I have this guitar for 1 year now and I must say that I do not regret the Gold Top Epiphone I've been robbed.
The look is awesome, finishing almost perfect.
Ultimately the price / quality ratio is unbeatable. I paid about 550 euros or 800CHF and after trying a lot of model in the same price range I think I made the best choice!
I highly recommend this guitar (not try other brand models I would not anticipate the full range)
