Made in USA in 1996

Fixed bridge, a kind of easel or strato telecster

Channel 60 ', + see fine and pleasant

22 freight, two microphones: a mini humbucker in neck and a humbucker in the bridge ... M series since changed by a Seymour Duncan JB slant

1 volume, a tonalitée, no push-pull


Very nice and round end and a small 60 '! with a binding around, I love

The guitar weighs 3 times nothing, it raises the arm of a carefree

Good ergonomics, easy access to acute given the small size of the corp and Chanfrain as on the Ltd adapted bidou

Well the neck pickup sounds good round and warm clear sound! the original bridge pickup sounds very plain but strato distortion is barely enough if like me you are a hardos that sticks to the Wylde harmonics everywhere. I have since changed the bridge pickup with a seymour duncan jb slant .... In France the same commercial brand does not conaisse! mean slant angle (like the original) available on site but German and us


Since my change of micro avou I have seen day and night. JB with the harmonic and finally leave this microphone is full of punch! perfect for hardcore, thrash and blues. I play with my band in hard rock STEEL RANGERS.

The clean sounds are also friendly with the original neck pickup and jb! I love playing ballads!

I play directly with the distortion of my head or my Mesa single correct Engl thunder! with that distortion pedals not need to con!

Brief with the original bridge pickups that fail potato and crachouillie


I use it for one month. She has a beautiful violin and mine is well preserved for a skyscraper in 1996.

I tried the 30 genes of guitars! I know what I want! I have small fingers and I love Gibson not for me to handle 50 '! I had a gibson les paul classic but this one is lightweight yet + + easy to play.

Good qualitée price, it is above the new re-editions.

I paid € 800 secondhand, now I see them around 1000 €! even at that price it's not theft. + In the gold finish is great
