Value For Money : Excellent
It is manufactured in Korea.
It has 22 frets, as well as three humbuckers.
The bridge is like Tune-O-Matic (as in Gibson etc. ..)
The guitar has a 3 position switch, which are organized as follows:
Serious-Position: neck and middle pickups
Mid-position: all the microphones at the same time
Acute-Position: bridge and middle pickups.
However, it is possible to perform any combination of microphones with 4 control knobs: one volume by microwave, and a tone knob.

The handle has a profile "rounded" and rather thick (if really thick).
For more details I invite you to visit the website: p

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice, we travel without problem. However, it is thick enough and small hands will get used.

Access to acute nickel is really due to the shape of the guitar. No problem on that side.

No problems either side of the balance or the side of the form. Finally I personally do not find anything to say about it is the form SG standard.

Just a little thing that needs to get used: when you play the pick has a tendency to touch the microphone in the middle (and yes but the price for his hell).

SOUNDS

For sound, the guitar has done nothing wrong.
It is very versatile in that direction, but there are still a warm and chubby at the Gibson, but not a copy.
Acute position, we get a pretty rich and sweet. Even by setting to 0 the microphone volume setting (so using just the bridge pickup), the sound is not loud at all and is gentle.
In middle position, the sound is warm and subtle.
Serious position, there are a lot of heat and some jazzy sounds. However, I find the sound a bit serious lack of character, but not rough either.
In saturated as it is perfect for the blues a little excited or a good old Led Zep. Position serious, it is perfect for the Santana or another. I note in passing that the sustain is nickel, it can make bends looong!
I use it simply by plugging directly to the amp, which is a Frontman 15R, and I use the distortion of the amp. Not need more to be happy with it

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a month already, and I'm really not disappointed.
She looks terrible, its a hell of ...
For the price, I think it's much better than Epiphi ...
I can say this because I played with Epiphone before, and the sound quality was very inferior.
Yes, it's a copy, but an excellent copy. I played with copies of Fender and Gibson that were more "toy" that guitar, but this one is really a good scratch. For that price the finish is exemplary (we find hardly any default by the way).
The value for money is great.
Sure, € 460 is money but I think it's a guitar that ages well.
I think I would do this choice with experience, because it is a very good guitar which is ideal for not huge budgets.
