French brand of guitar made in Korea
Mahogany body with flamed maple real table, transparent white finish for the table-and-white "solid" for the rest.
Maple neck stuck typed driver that really works.
Rosewood quality, graduations style "dot". 24 frets
Tailpiece and bridge crossing type Hard Tail.
Micro passive WSL "splitables".
2 volumes, one tone. The two volume knobs are also switches to split the pickups (humbuckers turn into simple for beginners).
The finish is relatively rare, the violin work is amazing for the price. Let's be clear right away, you never have something equivalent to 449 euros retail price! The violin is worthy of a guitar worth almost double. Routers are very clean and all the work of hooping. Electronic clean. The split knobs are very robust and do not take any games for use.

UTILIZATION

The set neck typed driver is a marvel. It is fairly thin and flat in my opinion, it will delight the soloists such as rhythm guitar. Its design promotes sustain than anybody expected. The guitar sounds very long, we hardly believe that this guitar is worth that price.
Access to the acute form is optimal and there is stratabound for many.
The ergonomics are good. Heavier than "active series" WSL home, his weight is still reasonable. The guitar is perfectly balanced. The game is very enjoyable as sitting upright.
Is obtained very easily and quickly a good sound. Whether you are in clean or distortion.

SOUNDS

The Almond Chocolate offers a huge range of sounds thanks to its split.
Very comfortable in the clean and crunch sounds, it is a little less distortion in microphones, but it is more than adequate home for the price but given the fine making a change Micro is a good operation.
The clean and crunch sounds are a treat and it was a lot of possibilities thanks to the split (transfomer humbuckers in the single microphone which is ideal for a better clean sound, warmer)
In a few days I equip Dimarzio DP101 "dual sound" (the sound of "super distortion" but splitables) I think that from that moment there is no more small gaps and it will be very comfortable in all styles and near perfection. At 80 euros the microphone, we remain in a very reasonable budget. However on the original pickups I want to emphasize that we can not find any microphone of this quality for this price range but as a guitarist and demanding confirmed I would change the pickups to optimize the guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it extensively in the studio for several weeks with several different computers and devices that may interfere sound, nothing to report on this side, the guitar is not receiving the parasite is unbeatable value for money again. You should take advantage as the brand is not well known. I think if another brand offers this model would be well above the 650/700 euros. I have had many guitars in this price range and upper range, relatively few had this level of quality.
The experience is so conclusive that I chose only products WSL, guitars, basses. This will be equipped with Dimarzio, I proposed to acquire the "Black Shadow" which is exactly the same but finish transblack to equip the EMG.
It is unfortunate not to find the most expensive brand in our stores. Equipped with good microphones it's all good though I repeat the original pickups are good for the price range.
