Made in Korea with specifications Made in Lyon ;-)
Wraparound bridge
Channel 60's style
22 frets
Only 1 P90 Dogear
1 volume, 1 tone

Simple and VERY effective

UTILIZATION

The handle is very well .... flatter a Epiphone Les Paul hair, but a little wider, suddenly it is the same .... not end, but not huge.
Ergonomics is his strong point (but not only), it is light, and the grip is .... immediate access to acute is easy to share the double cut shape.
The sound? A BUTCHER! it growls, it hums in OD or distortion, and it can be slamming into clean .... only 1 microphone, 2 knobs and BASTA! frankly, this is the kind of scratch or there's no "frills" superfluous, and much more!

SOUNDS

I play a lot of punk rock, hard rock "retro", grunge (Nirvana), and it is absolutely perfect for these records! the output level is quite large for a single coil .... Note that dogear P77 in size have more potato than those soapbar format the micro being larger (ie larger coil), I personally much prefer the dogear (I have a LB in Goldtop p77 soapbar).
Sounds? everything thoroughly, the limit can lower the volume a bit, and it's fat in fat! while remaining "vintage" .... for the good old punk (Ramones, Clash ....) this is perfect .... and even with heavy distortion, the sound is pretty accurate, just that must, it's not a big "mush" in clean .... you can get a good slamming (Superstition Stevie Wonder eg style) ... the nice little crunch are not left out either, really quite versatile for a simple scratch .....

I use a Bugera V22, a Marshall MG30 CFX, a Boss DS-2 (géniale!) OD tube Behringer VT 999 and a compressor Modtone Lemon Squeeze some cleans.

I love all the sounds, on the other hand it is clear that it is not made to play Death Metal ..... P90, it still remains a simple ....

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 6 months now, and I'm always thrilled ..... I have an Epi Les Paul standard, a Londond's Burning p77 Goldtop, and I tried the China Girl in Custom 77 (SG copy ) that I did not like it at all incidentally, too loud .....
In what I know of at 77 C, it is this one my favorite, without hesitation.
Pros: the look, simplicity, ergonomics, SOUND reasonable weight (I do not like too light scratch)!
The -: not much ..... some kinks finishes, almost imperceptible, but it's a shame ..... other than that .....

I found the Q / P ratio very, very good ..... I think this mic is really a success, the soapbar less taped me, although very accurate, and doubles in C77 are good, not great, but this is only my personal opinion .....
And then she has a good small mouth LP Junior ....

I would do this choice without hesitation! For me this is THE Rock Guitar own!
