I found used without notice in 1991, I had the sticker for info Made in Japan, so see description below.
Handle perfect for my small hands, the back of the handle patent has not moved in 15 years and there are enjoyable on a position, rather than on my Start.
Access in some acute medium frets dernires not easy.
Ergonomics for me IDAL, not too heavy, the chamfers are enjoyable, you can play for hours.
For sound, when you have a stop bar tune o matic bridge + with two humbuckers, one is already well gone. Without amp it sounds dj. With amp (small Marshall 15w), it's all good, powerful and variable. Maybe a little too fat on the neck pickup. All knobs and position the bottom two microphones. Jou a small marshall is great in its clear, well crystalline.
As I play a little bit of everything, it fits well, arpges are fun, small rhythmic are brilliant. Solo bridge pickup and distortion is terrible, full of harmonics.
Just a little more difficult to use with the neck pickup alone is moderately fat and Dfine.
Since my first review, I use the Korg D4, live and effect of using the korg. And aa t slap: the crunch obtained on the Vox AC30 amp simulation is to lose your head, snap in 1000 euro for a real VOX.
I have over 15 years, she has not moved. Mine is red DGRAD black, I bought a favorite Aesthetics and I never regret. I love its look, its simplicity and sound.
Before buying it I knew nothing, I could fall on a big scam and instead I got lucky.
Since then, I also bought a standard U.S. Start, always secondhand. A choice, I play on the Takamine.
For me reapport quality perfect price, I paid the era FF 1500.
