Guitar made in China is almost perfect. The violin is superb. The varnish is pleasant to the touch and leaves the wood better reason than the other three painted versions of this model. The handle has a profile D. The frets are "jumbo" is very well put. The mechanical type Wilkinson Melody Maker are accurate and reliable. Both P90 alone justify the purchase of this guitar.


The handle is very nice. Access to acute is impeccable. The resulting sound is creamy crunch of desire with the neck pickup and the bridge pickup with sharp. The pickups are not afraid large saturations, their grain is decidedly vintage. The overall sound of the guitar is pretty slamming with beautiful medium. Sounds at once hot and edges are trimmed to the sixties and seventies rock'n'roll but also for the blues tend SRV, HENDRIX, ZZ TOP or CLAPTON.


This guitar suits my style of rock and blues. I play on a ROLAND XL 40 (amp I recommend the way!. Modeling In: twin reverb and marshall is a killer!


I use it for a week. I really wanted to have a guitar with two P90 and it is fabulous! The price / quality ratio is amazing especially a superb cover comes with. Only downside, as usual, I recommend changing strings fitted as standard are not really terrible. This copy of SG outperforms all its competitors in the niche copies 1 or 2 P90, as well as the entry level Gibson SG Melody Maker 2 and P90. Try it! you will love.
