In which country was it made, and although the violin in Korea is very well finished, the guitar is very pleasant massive handle, 2 pairs of buttons (volume + tone) and a selector 3 positions of the classical sum.

UTILIZATION

The frets are rather the handle jumbo model that does not even frieze strings very close to the handle. Ergonomics is good, it looks like an SG without being a guitar but it's a very balanced to play sitting or standing.
Easily obtained a good sound without curling the frets with the strings the bridge is like "clumsy" and fully adjustable.

SOUNDS

Jazz, blues, Roch, Fusion, it will all metal, its 2 Humbuckers react perfectly on a tube amp the sound is clear and crystalline. They can also derail into a more bold type stoner.
The sound is absolutely divine light by playing with volume and tone you get a palette of its very interesting. The middle position is my favorite mediums resortent very low on the mix of the two microphones.
I play this guitar with a peavey 5150 (the light), a pedal Jacques Mercer Box, a TurboRat Fuzz and experience
The two pickups (humbucker) resseble hard to FilterTron Gretsch pickups.

OVERALL OPINION

For about 4 years I bought it after hearing the sound. The value for money is unbeatable in my opinion also paid € 300 with new flycase. The look puzzled me for a few minutes but the quality of manufacturing the type of micro and especially its wide range of guitar sound is a very endearing that it's hard to separate, I did not even discuss the price . With the experience if I had the opportunity I would have bought the 7-string version.
