I bought it in Paris in 2001 to 840 Euros.
This is a guitar Made in America rather small & cute. (Color Sunburst)
Above all: it is light.
It happened to me 3 hours to play back smoothly LIVE!
The mahogany dominant, but I'm not an expert.
The case is a Gibson (pink inside!)

I play rock, blues & a little bit of jazz
I have a Peavey Prowler tube amp & a Digitech rack GSP21 Pro
Microphones allow sound full of a variety (SG, Lespaul, Stratos).


The handle is very nice.
Access is very easy in the treble.
The guitar is light (especially compared to lespaul)
The three microphones can be very rich full sound & beautiful


To Rock or Blues style, I recommend it highly enough.
As good as the lens (it is close to the Start) in his big fat saturated or Crunchy.
A purchase with eyes closed (except default)


I use it for 2 years.
The pros:
The weight (or rather the lightness)
The variety of sounds
The handle very easily
The -:
Perhaps the mechanical (you can always change)

I also have a Hohner Steinberger style Batton has a sound that is not the soul of Gibson.
