Friendly and pleasant handle.
1 humbucker
1 volume
1 tone


Good sustain, good handle, good sound ...
I admit I do not understand the comments precedents??
Indeed, the ergonomics is not on top and you must learn to use the beast knowing that it takes a little time to adapt (as my martin backpacker). Personally, I play without standing problem, and sat resting on the right leg, and c is a party ...
Check out the test on the net. It sounds this guitar, especially with a saturation!
Try there with a good amp and you will be surprised.
For this price, c is present.

I play both in my sofa, that in repeated and ... Even on stage.


It suits my musical style (classic rock!)
Go see this test ...

You understand.


6 or 7 years, and it does not plank at all, and it does not move.

If I would do this choice? J redeem a second well in another color. :)

The guitar is worth the money any more.


The handle is nice, but the guitar stings SERIOUS head. Even on the legs, it slides all the time fields. It is imperative to put a strap, leather preferably (I tried the nylon, I do not recommend it: it's slippery!).

I had to make mine a luthier. 2 to 3 weeks after the purchase, she started curling heavily on almost all the strings. I had to play with a hood in box 3.
The maker released the stick and the problem was resolved. But he did not hide that he could return. The cheapest solution (given the price of the guitar) will then ... put a cap ... !

At first, I had hung my strap down the handle. The luthier I advised against it because given the flexibility of the handle, this could cause the problem of "frieze". Thus, the strap must be fastened on the guitar. I opted for a leather strap, which I sanded the inside to make it less slippery the possible. (Then rinse to avoid being put particles everywhere and set the color).


In sound, it is okay.
I play a Fender Mustang II, often not connected or not to wake everyone up, and I did not need "more" to work.

I mainly play sounds in "clear". I do not like at all saturations. So I can not give an opinion on it.

The strings are 09-42 in home. I say this because when I asked, I had two different information. Then I measured on arrival.
For change is more boring than an acoustic be cut! And pass the new strings in the hole under the tailpiece is not done right the first time. The microphone is very close to, the exercise requires a little patience and attention.

I had to change the pickup height because the treble was too low for my taste.


I use it for 5 months. I am a beginner in guitar for 6 months. I mainly work on an acoustic. I needed a "little" guitar that I can easily carry around and play "silently".
On this level there, it completely fills the specifications.
It is very compact, it is very affordable (better than her friends ... more upscale). To 2 times the price of a Shredneck, at least it sounds!

It comes with a carrying case with a pocket for housing picks, tuner, cover ...

For the price, I would do this choice. She is full of flaws, but I love it. Once we managed to master the "slip" of the machine, it is enjoyable to play. Of course, the box is tiny. Those who use it to build will be a little disoriented. But I especially like the small boxes.
This guitar can be taken anywhere: the office, weekend, vacation, airplane, etc.. The trade-off for the lodge in the luggage is minimal.

I take a lot of fun to play with, even though my guitar level is limited and I have (fortunately for my wallet ...) not yet tasted the more upscale models. The sound is very correct, there remains the simple pleasure to work anywhere, without taking the head.

It is portable, above all, no more, no less.
