Lâg Jet New Vintage JV500
This is the Chinese, but the finish is really perfect, nothing to say. The swamp ash body is "book-matched" as they say that is done in three parts but with veins that follow. I find it very beautiful in her dress "Honey Shadow". It is light, its handle without being a killer, is really nice, with 24 medium frets and a touch too aesthetically beautiful, bird's eye maple that "jet" :)
3 DiMarzio Virtual Vintage, a tona volume and selector 5 postions, so nothing complicated.
As for the bridge Wilkinson: ally mechanical self-locking is a model of stability in holding the tuning.


As I said the handle is really nice. It is not too typical strat. The profile is rather D and the radius of the relatively low key.
I'm not a fan of small frets but I used to so I love this guitar. Nothing to say in all cases on their poses and no concern for accuracy throughout the round.
Access to acute is downright facilitated by the good ergonomics of the body-neck junction.


At the sound, no disappointment, I was expecting to have a close to a strat but with his own personality is that I had! The Dimarzio are really excellent. In the clear: they have less slamming a strat but I think I prefer a little softer side. On intermediate positions, there are of course THE sound strat (this little "twang" we love so much!) And all other positions provides further even if I think the neck pickup lacks a bit of roundness compared central microphone.
In distortion, even higher, they squarely hold the road, with a good edge in the bridge position, with single coils clean, and with virtually no extraneous noise! The couple bridge + middle is not bad with a large saturation, its darkened a bit, it sounds a little heavier, it's nice.
In short, a real surprise to me these pickups. Their output level is correct for simple, without being flame lances, but they are accurate and not drool over.
Anyway I bought it mostly for clean sounds (I have my Les Paul for the rest) and I'm not disappointed.


I dreamed of this guitar when it was released in 2005 I think. It was a moment that I also wanted to complete my palette with a strat guy. I was waiting to buy a Mexican Strat me at least. I had a TV Highway as I liked but was limited in versatility. I came across a promo on the site Distrizic (€ 323 instead of € 539!) I did not think ... this is the first time since I bought a guitar via the Internet without having tried it before.
I do not regret for the price, there's nothing to say that's the killer!
Maybe I'll buy a second at that price :)

It's very Chinese very well finished, it is more in the 80's they know work now, 0) ...
For the characteristics you look there's no marked post ... This is a minimum ...
Small precision Di Marzio Virtual Vintage 402/403/404 are for no one points out I can me a little fart ...

Value for money ideal, above the model of Fender Mexico including the most expensive, I mean not even one of the highway ...


Channel pleasant, although I needed to get used to a bit (I do not know why but good) mapple + = pearl white we see nothing ...
Ergonomics top home top, like the Fender, Ibanez can get dressed!
I have big hands so no problemo for the treble, I do not see what could generate.
For sound, I was initially disappointed with the neck pickup then I proceeded to change the micro environment and the "ONE AGAIN!" Exactly what I was looking for this "twang" so characteristic of fender when you attack the microphone handle, as on my 60's reissue. I would definitely say this manipulation, and only two There's a son of the selector switch.
This gives a good sound with the personality in all possible configs a mega nice surprise!


I needed a simple model with micro péchus to rock to metal, is boring for clean sounds, so I find a more versatile strat Mexico without buying microphones, and I do not even speak of vibrato that tears and holding the tune, or mechanical self-locking and cut ropes, LAG really a step ahead of the others ...
I said that I paid 360 Euros new mine with shipping included on a mega promotion of DISTRIZIC (cheaper if I order for my store ... shame).
I use it with a head ENGL Gigmaster, or my rack JMP1 + TC electronics, or with the big tubes there's no shit in the fact that even in extreme settings, you can even stuff yourself on the distortion it n 'there is NO background noise, I never use a noise gate ...


Between an Epiphone, a squier or a stew of jet lag 500 to 360 euros, well I do it again this choice unbeatable value for money for mine.
Small flat is terribly ugly, mine is black is a little better but hey! I changed its appearance by painting the plate etc ... And now I'm really pleased with his cum, I complained about those models BEUARK orange (after you can love but wow is it ugly orange)! ! I put a picture to show what we can do.
It sounds fabulous and has enormous potential with a perfect violin for me.
I play Gibson Flying V, LTD ec 1000, Ibanez EGEN 8, Start 60's reissue and it has a place in my rack a guitar.
I said that I work in shop or zik ​​I am responsible for sales, so the guitars I tried every day Gibson Fender etc ... I think I have an objective and professional when I say it's good stuff.

ghighi's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" More than strat strat"

Lâg Jet New Vintage JV500
China Manufacturing
Neck maple, maple key, inlaid mother of pearl. 24 frets.
Swamp ash body.
3 single coils Di Marzio
5-way switch
Adjusting volume + tone
Wilkinson vibrato
Color Honey Burst (very beautiful)


The handle is very slightly more round than a stat, and affects more flat (it is strongly reminiscent of a handle of Excalibur that I had the opportunity to try two months ago)
The access to the highs is easy until the 21th box, note that the handle has 2 octaves or 24 boxes.
Very positive point: the mechanics are precise and reliable (with cutter string) even seeking the vibrato, it does not move. At this level the Fender Mexico does not follow!
The very good surprise: the sound. No secret is the single coil, then we say that it will sound vaguely like a Start. ERROR: bluffing, it sounds as Strat Stat! It has everything: the clarity of sound, the "twang" characteristic of the intermediate positions of the selector on a stratum, plus a slightly more punchy attack. These pickups (DiMarzio) accept without flinching saturation it is slightly pushed or without drooling.


I was approached one day this sound quality level of 69 on the custom shop Stratocaster, but I think those have a little more fishing that makes the difference.


In summary: a guitar aesthetically beautiful (well, there is personal) a line drawing of the Start it out with a great success, drawing an original head and also very successful (it is far from horrors of Ibanez, Yamaha, G & L, this level), with a quality microphone is quite remarkable.
And above all, it really sounds like a great Start.
For 500 euros (the price of a standard Stratocaster Mex) you have a guitar without a doubt very much higher.
