Guitar factory in Japan, with 22 frets, it is team of two microphones Yamaha P-90 type, configured fawn Les Paul. The bridge is Yamaha team of ball bearings offering plutt look "old" vaguely reminiscent of the Bigsby. Ct knob, it has a microphone volume and tonality. The switch is a toggle swith.


Recalls that of the handle strato series L We like or not like it. The fans will dtest flat handle. However, it is plutt end. The frets are fine and vintage style. Access in acute is specially easy, but it's OK.
The ergonomics are well thought plutt. It feels good of the game with scratches. As against it is heavy (more than a strato). Yes, we get easily sound quality.


A priori, this guitar has t think for surfing or rock styles plutt 50's. I use it personally for playing heavy metal and hard-core. I play with a Peavey 5150. With a minimum gain, the dynamics of a SGV800 hell. The punch is impressive, and the clarity of her remarkable (effect P-90). All the sound of this guitar are cool. The microphones serious, the sound is standard and drooling and abrasive, ideal for headphone and Kyuss riffs fawn. A rgal. For clean sounds, you sail in the very spirit strat.


I use the SGV800 past year. What I like most is the sound, and the original design. What I like least is the buzz GNR by P-90, but I will shield the cavities of the microphones). I tried hundreds of guitars before acqurir. I would do without this choice problem, and even, I'll buy another for a spair in concert.
