MGR/Andrew I-love-Guitar Radcliff's review"DeArmond M75"

DeArmond M75
I was wanting a guitar for a while , It would be so cool to play , and my dad bought me a vox amp . He says the his buddy has a nice little guitar that he had just fixed that he wanted to sell. So I had been working for a little while and got the money . I bought it for $120. This is definatley the coolest thing I have ever seen.

HMMMM.. thats a hard one ..... NOT!
This guitar is so cool black and ivory, sound great , very comfortable and easy to learn on. It's the coolest thing I own.

The one thing I don't like is it's sound is too smooth doesn't provide enough distortion but you can change that with a pedel . So ha.

The unit is very nice kinda heavy but comfortable . Looks awsome and pickups are great. This guitar is great.

Bottom Line this guitar is awsome and since the its discontinued I'd get one NOW! So with that I give this baby a 5. END OF STORY!

MGR/id-man's review"DeArmond M75"

DeArmond M75
Acquired from Charlies Music, Hyannis Mass for about $500 with hard shell case. I was in there looking at Epiphone Les Paul Standards (because I couldn't afford a Gibson) when the guy hands me this thing. This is my first electric guitar and the first time I walked out of a music store with a new instrument the same day I saw it.

Whoa baby. It's been a year now, and there isn't anything DON'T like about it. Sonically, the Gold Tone humbucking pickups and tone pots are both widely versatile, and it's got sustain forever, even unplugged. A solid agathis body probably helps that happen. As I try it out on different amps - and especially when I play it side-by-side with other guitars, I continue to be impressed by the sounds it can produce. Big fatty frets make chording and soloing easy.

In the looks department, DeArmond calls the finish on this one Moon Blue and it's is a pretty apt name for something that is mysterious and beautiful - Almost black in the shadows and the richest kind of Royal, almost Violet color in the light. Practically irridescent, but in a very tasteful way. Cream binding on the body and neck and block pear inlays in the neck are also nice appointments. I wasn't sure about the 'harp' tailpiece on this at first...overkill? Just a tad ostentatious - but wait, there is a cool trick it can do...Hit your sustain note or big chord, then slide your right palm down there and pump it for the coolest vibrato!

I don't like the weight of this thing hanging around my neck. It's one heavy piece. I know that comes with the territory, but it gets a little rough after 45 minutes. I'm always happy to slip it off and switch to my comparitively featherweight Strat for a while. (But I'm also just as happy to slip it back on when it's time to roar).

The only sad thing about this guitar is I paid nearly full price for it, only to have the whole DeArmond line sell out for dirt cheap this summer (01) and I DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY MORE!!!! Now that people have 'discovered' how awesome they are, there won't be many good deals out there.

I have been amazed at the quality construction, hardware and finish of this guitar. It stays in tune, and the tuners are really smooth to operate. This thing stays on a stand in my house where everyone picks it up and noodles on it. I cringe sometimes when my teenager's oafish friends start to go Townsend on it, but it never complains. Hasn't picked up a single nick or scratch.

I probably shouldn't give a five rating because, after all, this is an import guitar. And I really have a problem qualifying my rating by saying it's a five "for the money", since I honestly think if this guitar had cost double or triple what it did, I'd STILL be very happy with it. So five it is.

DeArmond M75
LP -type neck

UTILIZATION

Solid neck , close to a les Paul's. Good playability but very limited accessibility to upper frets..

SOUNDS

Mine has two gibson pickups  so I do not know the original sonority. 

OVERALL OPINION

I've owned DeArmond M75 for only 8 months now, but I'm already fully satisfied with it.It is sprakling purple , I have not chosen that ! Not really ugly ... but ...well....tastes!. It is a solid and well finished guitar, mine has 2 pups including a gibson p90 and another I do not know the model but it really has a big  ,very rock, sound,! The quality of the hardware is ok  and the varnish seems solid, .I paid mine 300 euros but it generally,sells for a little more , 350 to 400 euros  in mint condition.Only drawback, it's hard to reach the upper frets, this neck is a real log!lApart from that, nothing tnegative, a beautiful guitar of great quality for the bucks! If I had to , at that price ,I 'd buy it again !

DeArmond M75
Everything has been said I think.

UTILIZATION

Typed LP sleeve least as wide. For those who have never had the opportunity to test this kind of race is bigger, rounder, and it gives the impression of being more accurate than a typed handle Start, which has the advantage of being faster and more purpose. I like both (among others).

For my part I can not find particular difficulties to play in the treble. The guitar is its weight but this is a problem on stage, on the contrary, the weight distribution is balanced (it does not lean forward or back), it provides stability and therefore a comfort to play standing. Provide a good solid strap anyway. I have an overestimated, resulting in a crack in the veneer between two knobs ... (This is not a question of strength of the guitar, the fall was frankly very bad and even a log Gibson would have suffered ...). Well anyway I do not sell, she worked her vintage look ...

2 switch positions, 1 volume knob and one tone for each pickup, one that does not find its sound in ten seconds can be cut with one hand ...

SOUNDS

I play rock blues-rock and I do not know what and the guitar fits with what I love doing. I find it really bright for the blues-rock. Of course it's not a Gibson LP and then who can afford an LP? As for the little sister Epiphone, I find it frankly less punchy than the M75, less plump. All positions are interesting, yes it can sound a little Gretsch Duesenberg or even if it's something else. In acute sends well, although sometimes serious as one would like to take it even further. This guitar has a real personality, which is rare in this price range. She's pretty, she attracts the attention (it also has), it sounds like no other. I played better guitars on more expensive guitars but this one, I love it. Its sound is warm, it's really something sexual (no kidding). And that's good for my music. I climbs 10-52 and there brr ...

I put 10 in view of the pleasure it provides relative to its price.

OVERALL OPINION

I own this guitar for 8 years. I had had it completely by accident: my guitar teacher at the time was another student who had bought it in VPC and who had planted himself in control, I had sold 2500 F lépoque, new . Of course, it is not perfect, but this guitar has the class, it is a fact. The tailpiece is not super convenient, but it throws the handle does not move, the knobs do not always crack. Like many people I had to change the jack, really poor quality (25 euros in a luthier, good is not death, anyway it must be the address from time to time). The value is frankly excellent if you fall in love, because this guitar needs love to give the best of itself. It has a well-typed hot. Try this before you buy. If this advice is still valid, it is even more here.

With experience, difficult to say whether I would do this choice. Today, I do know much more than a decade ago hardware issue, and I may be declining the offer. But what I'd be stupid to do that! My ignorance of the time gave me this gift, a guitar that gives me the impression that she is alive, or worse, but mostly for the better.

CHAC is suitable for acute.
Good ergonomics, this guitar is balance, is heavy as it should (more than one but less than my strat US Tl!) It really seems to trsrsistante evidence of sc no.

DeArmond M75
The M 74 is a copy of Guild Starfire made in Korea. The handle 21 is covered with a fette affects palissandre.Les pickups are DeArmond 2K amricains, the same as some of Gretsch, and are controlled by a slcteur 3 position, 2 volumes and 2 tonalit.Le vibrato is a copy bygsby house, and are mcaniques oil bath.

UTILIZATION

The handle is, in my opinion, enjoyable, gibson type, fairly round, with a nut width of less than one Lespaul. Large default, the Implats makes the handle acute ASEZ difficult to access, rather than on a Gigson, and the guitar is quite heavy, but it is bearable, the weight being fairly well equilibrated ... Otherwise Get a good sound at the door of any person capable of trouner a knob ...

SOUNDS

The pickups have a sound enough simpleDeArmond particular, close to P90, slamming more than humbuckers, but fatter than simple micro Traditional ... In fact, they are versatile enough, but a Personal brands. I use it in DIFFERENT register, and it goes very well: Blues / Rock rock'n'roll, "Folk / punk" to the Neil Young, Rock heavier, a little grunge, soul and rhythm'n'blues (Although I admit that I liked in this register a Telecaster). but always with a sound a bit unusual ... I use it with Eq cruncher for my amp, a Big Muff distortion for large, and a tremolo , and allows me to cover just about every style deficits.

OVERALL OPINION

I have this guitar for two years, and I intend to keep for a long time ... the look (blue mat), sounds, bygsby the gnrale personality, I love ... I ' t have the small cot sduit eccentric original.
The report qulit price is very good: I pay € 565, and the quality is quite respectable net finishes, excellent microphones and effective ... acastillage seu BMOL, the jack I replaced the ... nothing major.
Today, I would do the same choice, but I would take a telecaster plus for sound diffrent ...
