Value For Money : Excellent
Made in Korea (Made in Korea).

Quite late innings, rather typed 60s, I think.

For the rest, see more Thomann.de

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice.

Shape and color very successful.

Normal weight for a Les Paul, but after a few hours of rehearsal in the standing group, getting tired.

There is just a "small" black spot in the table: the mechanics are bad bills. For a beginner, it may be sufficient, but I advise to have changed by self-locking or mechanical Gibson.

Access through acute: This is what a Les Paul!

I use a basic drawing: 10/46.

SOUNDS

I play mostly blues and rock, and I must say that it excels in its field.

We get a little bit about all sounds except some to be a perfect clean, because the microphones are oriented Blues.

I use a VOX VT40 + with a BOSS ME-25 multi-effect.

His bluesy, little sound hard rock or hard rock. Example of Dire Straits:


Different distortion by moyennent are against, but with a good distortion pedals going it alone!

OVERALL OPINION

It is now one year that I have this guitar, and I do not regret it.

In this price range, there are also Epiphones, but to get a correct thing, it is mandatory to change the pickups. And I liked the least curved head, compared to that of the Vintage V100 which is close to the head of Gibson.

Very good quality / price ratio, I did recommend it to those who do not have the budget for a Gibson.
