    Straddling an electro-folk and a half box jazz.
    Micro Piezo and preamp with three band EQ
    Micro magnetic type mini-humbucker in the neck.
    Channel not far from that of a Stratocaster with a fairly flat radius.
    Volume and mixer between the signal from the piezo and the magnetic pickup.
    Mechanical head with oil bath of very good quality.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very comfortable as is often the sleeves Yamaha.
    The ergonomics is quite nice with a successful balance. This guitar is easy to play sitting as standing with a rather light weight. Access to acute is very correct. I did not encounter any difficulty in getting a nice sound although I recognize that there is a little......

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very comfortable as is often the sleeves Yamaha.
    The ergonomics is quite nice with a successful balance. This guitar is easy to play sitting as standing with a rather light weight. Access to acute is very correct. I did not encounter any difficulty in getting a nice sound although I recognize that there is a little easier in the genre but this guitar has the defects of his qualities ... see below.

    SOUNDS

    I use it mainly in a register or to jazz sounds of electro types or types of electric box. In the first case I plugged directly into the sound system, preferably via a direct box, the second in a tube amp Fender Blackface mind.
    In any case I can get the sound you want even though I recognize that the lack of a tone knob is a bit annoying for electric jazz sounds.
    Personally lowering good treble on the amp and by the amount of media required I get to have the sound that I like, that is not too round with some slamming bass and defined more or less mind George Benson, Ronny Jordan, Norman Brown. I have 11/52 equipped with flat net.

    OVERALL OPINION

    After nearly ten years of regular use, but not necessarily intensive this guitar stands well.
    I had before it various Epiphone Joe Pass which all have a big disappointment!
    For less money this little hybrid instrument proves comfortable, highly effective, versatile, reliable and sounds beautifully. It lacks a tone knob to be almost perfect!
    The value for money is very good.
    I'm very happy!
    It can even be used for blues or rock.

    Originality: This can be mounted on steel guitar strings electric or folk, and also nylon strings through the tailpiece versatile. I often had both configurations, and it works surprisingly well.

    UTILIZATION

    Before connecting: there is a very nice guitar, very balanced.
    The cutaway obviously facilitates access to acute, the handle end is almost flat.
    Note that this guitar is extremely light, a treat to play standing up.
    A pretty good resonance and projection to the fineness of the body.
    Its shape may sound like a Les Paul Junior, good grip.

    SOUNDS

    And now you plug: I said earlier that you could install steel or nylon strings. I'll edit my opinions with steel strings.
    With the Mini-humbucker, easily obtained a clear lens, we can change that by using the setting of the amplifier or console in case of direct connection. This gives her an easy drinking, but the most demanding will still find it hard to be frankly met. What is my case.
    It is possible to install a deep draft to approach a more jazz, but the result still lacks character for my taste.
    And now the piezo ... eeeuuuh how to say?! This is a piezo what! The sound is dry, 3-band EQ is barely enough to fix things. With a deep draft we will approach a folk sound but still slammed with piezo signature. I think this needs a good amp for electric-acoustic guitar, with compressor and EQ to the task.
    The piezo is already more interesting with nylon strings, we will find a more balanced, easier to manage. However attention to Feedback ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Ultimately this guitar suits me perfectly for a very specific uses and rock.
    I play only with the overdrive of my Boss Blues Driver 2, with a high gain that I send in a Laney GC 120C (2x12 "). I get sound disgusting, very rock and very dynamic, bold and responsive as I can easily go on feedback. I do a lot of stage with this guitar, and I find it very reliable, I can do a set of 45 minutes without me re-tuning. With its vintage look, it hides its strengths.
    I played with for 10 years now. I first purchased for the project Jazz and Bossa Nova, nylon rope, without being convinced hyper. Until I discovered him his aspiration Noise Rock Sludge ... and then I never left.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is it enjoyable?
    Yes, that's why I bought it. But it Drout to beginners. Because the dimensions of the handle are those of an electric guitar and the strings are nylon, so feeding. We must caress the notes. No need to press the buttons like crazy because the one draped. But this guitar is made to be amplified, so it cohrent.

    Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
    No problemo! In fact all keys are available! And almost four octaves ...

    Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
    Ergonomics is the highlight of this guitar. It has no equivalent I believe in this price range. We are attracted by its look and its design and hybrid electro-acoustic guitar (?) With a handle end and a folk nylon strings to "slam" the agreements. It is lgre, shape adapts to the body. Sitting or standing I have everything under control. This is the comfort of a Hollow-body.

    Do you get a good sound easy? ...
    N'esprez not get it on with the sound by using non-amplified. Remember that an electric guitar! It would have to have a royal t qualiseur parameter. For rglages is the amp that was going on. I looked at my beginners treble. Especially the string is Mi guard at the top and then APRS is easy.

    SOUNDS

    Appropriate are your style of music?
    Well, no, now I play more amplification ... But I do not annoy my neighbors ranges is sr.

    With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    I used a fender blues deluxe. I even test a multi-effects Roland. The skyscraper is understood that this is for a. I think it is appropriate and well-trs music genre brsilienne Georges Ben Jor, Gilberto Gil and so on.

    What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
    The sound is crystal plutt. It can also be felt. But fat, not really ... Think increase the treble. It is a bit dsquilibre at the sound: the mdiums Submitted too. If you want to play jazzy solos flowing style, did the trick!
    We can even apply Satus & Feedback distos without horrible that would be obtained with electro-acoustics. Just find the volume limit does not Exceeds. I swear it's an electric guitar! Finally, I know well ... trs

    What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
    Rverb clear sound with a 'see a little delay and striking agreement: love. I dtest, there is none. I'll just say that the sound is original as the concept of the guitar. In itself even when it lacks a little heat. Clean and efficient as I said above. If you want to use it with effects, you do not make no account: the practice of the guitar ct prevail.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it?
    I bought it in 2000. But I use it for PERIOD.

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    What I like most is the look! This made me crack. It is black with Oues. It draws well trs. It's stupid but I think that's also why I did not spar. Yet I did not be ftichiste with musical instruments. But she has the face! All my friends have told me elsewhere.
    Deuximement the era I was looking for a guitar according to this concept (like Keziah Jones !!!). So good, I thought.

    What I like least is the finish at the mcaniques.

    Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    Not in this concept and the in this price range.

    How do you report qualitprix?
    I bought about 500 in 2000. I think the price is suitable.
    MODEL With this, we can not consider that the quality: Whereas it is also the concept and its rarity. Sr is that it's not a guitar of great quality. You pay the original. That's why I put 8 / 10 overall.

    Exprience with, you will do again this choice? ...
    No. I let myself sduire this little guitar, just before dropping the ELECTRICITY that's silly. Now why did I not sold, you say? Ben ... I think the charm is not broke ...

    In addition to the notice prcedent, I add that I have a 3-band equalizer on the wafer. The handle is D I would say it is fine and mostly flat at the top of the handle (from the 12 th fret)

    UTILIZATION

    The ergonomics are very good. The handle is fine and is great for small hands, I also facilitated GENERALLY more on this guitar than on my hollow body. I think the nylon strings are for something. The bends are a little weird, being given that the strings are flexible TREE. You can access all the frets, it's a pity that a few have not y'en more.

    SOUNDS

    Contrary to the opinion Previous, I play 3 / 4 time without being plugged and it sounds. Unplug the volume is more important than a solid body but be of the same level as an acoustic. To play at night it's great. Good AC is not suitable for lovers of distos ... The sound is very slamming, but with the equalizer can be broadly correct. on the other hand sound is very typ brsilien, jazz or reggae limit, c cool basically.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this guitar for 2 years since I bought second hand. I got a price defying any competition, it is mostly the price that had motivated my purchase and also his style (it's true that it is a guitar that speaks, I too full of remarks). But over time I attach and now I'm not ready to lcher. This is not a versatile guitar in sound, but I like her a little cluck travel guitar that can play without embter everyone, especially the look and comfort .. Excellent 2nd guitar, it helps broaden his musical horizons.

    The ability to switch between the internal microphone and giving his électroaccoustique microphones front delivering more electric sound is very pleasant to move from one style to another, or for the chorus. I find it very appropriate for Latino styles, from bossa, jazzy songs ...
    I play with an amp simulator, a pod line 6, on which I could put distos. I just made that choice for easy adjustments.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use for 5 years and I can not get enough. What I like most is the mix between the two microphones, its texture, its bass, clarity in the sound.
    value for money seems excellent.
    I would buy the same instrument if necessary.
