The China Girl Raw Raw Power Custom 77 is manufactured in South Korea (curdle loads required) To reduce the cot manufacturing. This is a true copy of the famous Gibson SG Special 60's! A DGain hell!
It is a team easel type Tune-O-Matic, the handle has a half-round profile (Strat-style '), there are 22 frets perfectly recessed into the handle to hair and lime! The whole body of al mahogany! Yes Sir!
It has 2 microphones "P77" P90 version of the Gibson Custom, but getting closer all the same simple microphones by their sounds.
There are 2 knobs per mic: "Tone" and "Volume" and a microphone slecteur "toggle switch": Bridge pickup alone Neck pickup + bridge pickup, Neck pickup alone.
Finally, we note a very cohrent choice of the materials for a wonderful finish for a price so low lev! =)
A handle very pleasing that "falls" naturally in the hand of Man-Blues confirm or amateur, but equally in that of the more extremists Rocker ^ ^.
Fingers find their way easily, the adaptation time to find its representatives is very short =)
Prcdemment as saying it is a copy of the SG Special which have jous Robby Krieger (the Doors) and Pete Townshend (The Who) in the provision of Woodstock (o the title ...). To be honest, I have long sought this type of guitar: SG x2 P90 pickups, AND I FOUND!
Regarding comfort, is a guitar that has nothing lgre envy a Start 'in weight!
At the risk of becoming heavy and rpter me, as an SG, we have a CASC best to all frets without undue effort LATEST ...
See below for the sound aminches P!
I want specific on before starting the configuration of microphones let prsager versatility, which remains on.
And it is! We spend little electric blues to jazz mellow through the Hard Rock-Australian not to mention the Funk.
Between us I prefer the sound "Blues": it comes into full foot in the working class districts of London in the mid 60's when the Blues Boom ... A True rgale!
In Clean, we have a well balanced and everything on a good sound, the P90 as a mix between humbucker and single coils. The sound is typ P90, that's all ^ ^.
With distortion, it was very sound Blues / Rock, and if you play around with the knobs to "Tone" is swimming in happiness! ^ ^
In my case, I love the crunch sound of the microphone serious, but for larger distortions, the microphone is prfrera acute or intermediate-position by lowering the volume of his grave to have a balanced but not too much even when rondouillet
In clean, the three positions lend themselves to play, it will be a matter of tastes =)
A report its money really crazy.
That said, the fact that I play this guitar with a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 40 watt lamps is certainly something ^ ^ I use this guitar
for some months, and as such guitar is not found in stores, so that the data Socit only sells products on its website, I could not try it in advance. That said, the configurations suited my musical style, I head down function ^ ^
A MODEL 375 on vintage, we will not quibble! And we were right xD
I hesitate between her and a Telecaster, but it is very nice, really.
What I love most about this guitar, it sounds crunch, the electric blues of Clapton or AC / DC, it makes EVERYTHING!
I am however not a fan of the clean the bridge pickup, but as I always add effects (chorus, flanger etc. ...) this is not trsdrangeant ^ ^
Not really, I'm very satisfied, and I thank the Boss for their ideas Custom77 retros cheap guitars =)
I t very well informed by them, and I would do certainly raise the exprience with this choice, but I may be change the bridge pickup (Seymour Duncan without a doubt), while keeping the neck pickup, the latter, more than adequately fulfilling its function!
Go ahead my friends, it's solid

See review prcedant
caractristiques an SG, with two microphones type P-90 (which is why I chose it).
The main default is for me the mechanics, but a good can change.
A note on mine a few default finish, which does not affect my game, nor the overall aesthetic, but which may be the most finicky rler.
I would put a 7, but it's really subjective. A guitar playing
pleasant, comfortable handle, small weight (even a little too similar my SG), really RAS
I play in a noisy rock band with lots of shades of, say, Sonic Youth At The Drive-in (to caricature). I plug into a Marshall combo lamps (the JCM 2000 401) in OD1 crunch on, and boost by a TS-9 and (for the big sound) a Boss GE-7.
This is not my main guitar (I use mostly my SG Standard), I wanted a 2nd guitar to the case where for concerts, with caractristiques close enough but if possible with P-90.
The neck pickup gives me indiffrent, I feel like a veil before the HP when I use it, too dull for me, really forget.
The bridge pickup is really a killer cons in crunch and overdrive. Plans although noisy, the limit of the false, the trip At The Drive-In Fugazi or go alone, and since I do not want versatility, was enough for me very well.
I would put a 7 (because of Micco sleeve) otherwise it would be a big 8.
I use it for a year.
The Plus: - The bridge pickup from the crunch!
- The price
His -: - The small details of finishes
- The neck pickup
- Not testable in stores (unless you live in Paris or Lyon)
IMPORTANT: Please note that I am less demanding because it is not my main guitar, so do not just rfrez this opinion (+ the fact that all tastes are in nature).
I probably would do this election for a 2nd guitar, but it is quite possible that I hesitating (like when I bought a Epiphone Korina Flying V (which I love with a few mods) & %&%&%&% Good Guitar Spares
