Origin: Cape Town (South Africa)
Guitar made from a can of gasoline brand Castrol by a craftsman who the Cape Mount to sell its box (it has a website but I did not find it. As it is above all a question style more than quality prevails, I will not elaborate too technically.
Channel artisanal no truss rod, 16 frets, a basic single coil of unknown origin.
Rglages a volume and a tonalitbr /> I put 7 because the jack trs good quality not support the trip went wrong ...

UTILIZATION

Flat handle, large enough, nice play ...
All 16 boxes are available trs (and yes it is a mini guitar)
Bah good ergonomics ... is a gas can not you, not a PRS, and forcment the handle is heavier than the body tle, but the whole is so lightweight it does not switch into play standing.
For sound, it is trs original was the unique sound of this guitar (well since I raffistol jack)
go, 8, ergonomics is not the purpose of this type of guitar is plutt for sound ...

SOUNDS

Usually it's my style death metal, black, trash ... but I did not buy for a. ..
Tests on a micro cube and a laney tinkering.
So for the blues, with a lightweight crunch or clean, but always a hint of rverbe, the sound is surprising, personal love. It is lightweight and clean the cruncher is too pure. Ms. W ith a large saturation (Boss HM2) we could find sounds goods.
I also play unplugged at night to rveiller not my sister, and that his personality is the rvle. The highs are crystalline trs with a small color mtallique due the cash (who does not against a volume standard, nor low enough discrtes). This aspect shows a little less branch even if the sounds of the bends in particular is trs CHARACTERISTICS)
I bought it to find the sound I had heard on videos, and I, so nickel ... 9

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a week, and what I love is the unique sound. For I too apprci against the stroke of the jack, but the transport (I have been back).
Good on the other hand, the ratio Q / P. .. I have been offered but I know that the basis it costs around 200-250 euros in Cape Town, brands that sell by mail are against more Chréa (minimum 350 at Thomann) and good c ' it is on a single instrument and it must be ripped off some tourists, but is expensive to the point of view of the quality components utiliss (a good jack would not have lach as a, snifff).
In dpart, c'tait DLIR on a video when I saw her in real aa t love at first sight. So yes, if c'tait again, I would do it, accepting the quality and the default of this unique instrument. Twice even, as seems Ced (ptite ddicace my singer ...).
