This guitar is frabrique in France, it has an alder body, a rosewood fingerboard, Schaller vibrato 2000, a mechanical lock. micro configuration consists of two Rio Grande humbuckers run by a 5 position.elle switch has a push-pull or off putting a preamp (active) Musitech. shaped like the music man petrucci.
The handle is comfortable to use. However, access to acute could have been a little more work. the body is comfortable, relatively light.
This guitar is versatile enough Althoughthe we have a hard time it define a real personal. whether on a tube amp, a transistor amp or pod, you get a pleasant sound without transandant. The preamp provides a boost but then pert definition in precision. microphones are also no tural personailit.
I use it for 6 months. I love its shape and color. I tried a lot of guitar before buying it, I finally find the ... more the violin is very good quality but there are long delays (in password control in December, guitar book in April), the finish was not worth the price (1200 euros): default paints, varnish, freight problems, drilling done wrong (oval holes) etc ... short, the default acceptable for a guitar but not a 300 euros in 1200.
I play every style of blues rock, The variety of punk and hard I am disappointed trs, at this price I would have to wait and make a Stratocaster ultra Wolfgang or see a Showmaster .

French guitar, 2 humbuckers and split, good characteristics have already been explained in previous reviews ... in any case the nombbre opportunities is sufficient to address the most styles ..
Handle very nice to me, relatively thin, which is neither a failure nor a quality in itself, everyone has their preferences .. fast enough anyway, but again, speed is not the ultimate test .. Guitar average weight, well balanced, you can play standing quietly for a few hours without sealing sciatica (and I have not a weightlifter!)
At the sound, the main feature is versatility, but I think in the positive sense, ie with a proper amp (preferably tube, but directly into the console, it also defends ..) we can obtain a wide variety of sounds, the microphone is severe drooling fat free (unlike some gibson ..) the microphone has all the sharp teeth you want without skinning the eardrums and the intermediate positions, by modulating some the pots, used to get different sounds with a little more for the position "intermediate-grave" (micro serious split) that evokes a little telecaster. but there is much to discover by trial and error a bit, clear that both saturated .. (Easy on the vibrato, though ...)
basically, this guitar is not a stat or a les paul, let alone an Ibanez, but you can approach these styles with it by putting your own personality
I own this guitar for 3 years, and although I am fortunate to have other best known and probably more typical, I come back regularly.
it is ideal for very different enchainer pieces without having to take a trailer with you .. and, as I said above, it is an instrument that does not stifle the one who plays a sound too typical and too heard
In addition, it is not ugly to look at ..
to 1200 euros new, it is not exactly given, but it's a purchase that I do not regret, especially since it seems to improve with age ..

Willow's guitars are stringed guitar factories to La Rochelle, they are not easy to find. nantes on there is only one store that sells. "Willow's" littralement, alder. Alder gives the handle a super easy game, cool to jerk the handle Submitted to the guitar like a Start to the appearance and function but with Rio Grande humbuckers + a gain knob non ngligeable for soli!
The handle is trs enjoyable, easy to play and the guitar is trslgre. you can get a lot of different sounds with the slecteur five positions. there is also a gain knob that adds mdiums normment and sustain, ideal to dmarquer in solos. with such a scraper, you glue him an amp and lights it shines littralement! I jou it with my fender deluxe, wahh and laughed more. we feel that the lamp is its field prdilection.
The pickups are really great river height, trs versatile and each has its own micro personality. so we can get all kinds of sounds. the sound is crystalline gnrale Manir, typical thicknesses of strata with more thanks to humbuckers. but the surprise is when he sticks an overdrive in the ass. the sound is a warmth and roundness unexpected. the neck pickup, he, sounds ample trs, genre les paul. matre the word of this guitar is so versatile. but it sounds great for blues / rock power. I have personal preferences for the penultimate ct micro bridge with an overdrive on a lightweight amp fender lamps: those who know the album 'presence' of Led Zep (unfortunately trs unknown) know what "heat" I mean - the blues of tea for one.
It's a versatile guitar trs normment can play styles, from blues to rock, the same holds good mtal a road (I recorded an album with my former death metal band, and has done really well!). and especially a good quality super skyscraper which explains its price lev when even a little too. a little cheaper would be perfect. IDAL to pass a sound strat-type sound of gibson scne without stopping to change without scratching.
