Made in USA in 1996

Fixed bridge, a kind of easel stratovolcano or telecster

Channel 60 '+ see fine and pleasant

22 fret, 2 microphones: 1 mini humbucker in neck and a humbucker in the bridge ... M series since changed by a Seymour Duncan JB slant

1 volume, one tone, no push-pull


Handle very pleasant and purpose; a small 60 '! with a binding around, I love

The guitar weighs 3 times nothing is the pupil of a carefree arms

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

Good neck pickup sounds good round and warm clean sound! Acute original microphone sounds very clear stratovolcano but distortion is barely enough if like me you are a hardos that sticks the harmonic Wylde everywhere. I have since changed the bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan jb slant .... In France the same brand of commercial conaisse do not! slant means inclined (like the original), but available in German and us websites


Since I change my microphone confessed to have seen day and night. With JB harmonic finally come out and this mic is full of punch! perfect for hardcore, thrash and blues. I play with my hard rock group STEEL RANGERS.

The clean sounds are also friendly to the neck pickup of origin and jb! I love playing ballads!

I play directly with the distortion of my head Mesa single correct or Engl my thunder! with no need for distortion pedals con!

In short bridge pickups with original has manquai potato and crachouillie


I use it for 1 month. It very beautiful violin and mine is well preserved for a skyscraper in 1996.

I tried the 30 enes guitars! I know what I want! I have small fingers and I love therefore Gibson for me the handle 50 '! I had a gibson les paul classic but this one is still + + lightweight and easy to play.

Good value for money, it is the top of the new r-conditions.

I pay 800 secondhand now I see around 1000 !! even that price is not theft. + In the gold finish is super
