UTILIZATION

Soft knobs and without hiccups.
Channel end and fast.
Due to its size, light weight and good ergonomics it proves to be comfortable.
Access to acute carefree.

SOUNDS

This guitar seems very versatile, but in return may be missing a bit of personality. The bridge pickup is very sharp but lacks a bit of bass in tuning in D is still good but lower I think it is not optimal. However, with a pedal and / or a suitable amp can draw what you want ... I play mostly thrash, it works well.

OVERALL OPINION

3 years of loyal service, nothing to report, it seems to age well. Frankly for the price paid for the product deserves no criticism on a whole, it was well worth the money, in addition to seem more expensive in terms of his violin. Guaranteed purchase without regrets =)
PS: for standard tuning I recommend strings D'Addario XL nickel wound 10-46, this is what I found most enjoyable to play while being sufficiently slamming.
