Korean manufacturing, very good finishes
Channel 22 frets, 2 humbuckers in simple splittable
1 set of volumes and 1 tone push-pull splitter for the microphones
A three-position selector
easel type Tune o matic
Mechanics, although I find their keys hideous perfectly fulfill their role.

I put nine to issue keys, because otherwise it would be 10 given the quality of the finish.

UTILIZATION

The handle is one of the most enjoyable I have ever used. Neither too large nor too thin, frets perfect, really tip top. Excellent access to acute due to the shape of the guitar. Much better than a LP.

The guitar is light I think, anyway, I do not at all tired despite hours of practice. Small detail, it is as comfortable sitting than standing.

SOUNDS

His side, at first I thought the pickups really means. I've changed for Seymour SH2 and SH4, and there is great. In humbucker, a well round and fat at a time. If we force the attack, although it crunch as it should. When we split, you lose a little power but the sound becomes very crystalline. It approaches the Tele. So, we have a super versatile guitar.

However, I do "that" 9 because I had to change the pickups for that!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it now for 3 years with always the same pleasure. I love its versatility and comfort. I like the least original pickups.

I tried a bunch of model before starting the Epiphone LP Standard that I used before and is a lot more often now in its case. It's really versatility that attracted me.

Pix exceptional value! Too bad that Cort does happen again.

With experience, I would do this choice with your eyes closed!
