made in Korea
handle relatively screwed end rosewood dual abalone markers, mechanical robust, beautiful flamed maple top plate
mini humbucker neck pickup, middle single micro signed OBL, pickup: a humbucker
oblique signed OBL (replaced by a Seymour Duncan JB slant)
golden hardware that has not rusted as I read a previous review), but a little lost at the bottom of the neck pickup under the blows of a pick (guitar shoots his 20 years ...) two knobs: volume and tone, a 5-way switch and a split switch.
Epiphone vibrato far from Floyd but you can still use ... bridge without significant problems. the junction body handle: beautiful embossed brass plate.
the handle is not a handle strat but it is very nice. the body is thinner than a LP, lightened by the tremolo cavity. So the guitar is not heavy and is well balanced. access to acute is same as for a Gibson LP.
quite sound: nice jazzy sound on the bridge pickup, type out strat phase
Crystal (strat) on the middle and bridge pickups, the most powerful sound tends towards a LP sound (Duncan replacement does help). microphones can be connected. the humbucker can be split for sounds + strat. but be careful! it is far from the miracle guitar that sounds exactly like a Strat and LP as the same time.
you can enjoy this guitar if you leave the "bipolarity" LP / strat. it offers something quite different, and has its own personality. good and beautiful friend of the recording studio, which broadens the sound spectrum.
I use this guitar for jazz sounds, and hot humbucker sound. one amp is a Classic Vibe 30 years 90.mes of distortion pedals are XXl Tech 21, Digitech Metal Distortion, and more rarely Big Muff Pi
I use it for just under 20 years.
I have owned and / or has the following guitars: 12 string Eko, Fender Stratocaster, Fender Showmaster Celtic, Fender Telecaster, Squier 51 (one of my favorites), Godin 5th Avenue (very good), Epiphone ES175 Custom Shop ( excellent), Washburn Bantam (very good), Gibson Les Paul, Epiphone The Biscuit, a Vantage semi-acoustic, Cort Strat imitation.
we may not like it does not sound like a LP or she is even a remote strat sounds. I personally like the fact that it has its own personality. with hindsight, I would first fell in love with his beautiful little face, and then I would run to buy a Duncan JB for a more punchy sound.
