I'm always using TH2 program via computer. (and only for monitoring, I use an old East German amplifier, called 'Regent')
old school sounds, I like it:
Mine guitar was made in Korea, so because it is no longer manufactured (even in China) it bacame rare
great looking shape and finsih
Groover tuners (but it feels not very solid)
Mahogany body, and neck (set, not bolded to the body as the Special versions)
Because of the SG shape the access for the high frets is extremely easy
relatively good fret finishes
the body is too thin, so not heavy enough for the neck and head. In other words, it is not well balanced.
pickups are noisy even without distortion effect.
Made in China
Double-cutaway solid mahogany body
Set mahogany neck
24-.75" scale length
Slim-tapered neck profile
1.68 nut width
Fingerboard inlay at the 12th fret
22 jumbo frets
Dual Alnico V humbuckers
2 volume and 2 tone controls (with integrated killswitch tone pot)
3-way pickup selector
Pearloid trapezoid inlays
Satin black finish
This guitar oozes "cheap". It's not a complete lemon - it is able to be setup decently for ok playing action, and the pickups do sound good. But the construction of the guitar just screams "cost-cutting" to me. The satin finish on the neck and body feels nice, but it just looks like someone spray-painted this guitar in their garage with a couple of rattlecans. The electronics are where this guitar really shows its inexpensiveness - the integrated killswitch tone pot started randomly killing the signal first on just trying to turn the knob, then on its own. It kept doing this until I sprayed some contact cleaner in the pot - I shouldn't have to do this on a new guitar!
The tone of the pickups was good - when they worked. As stated before, sometimes the killswitch would cut out the entirety of the signal, making this a very frustrating guitar. However, after the fix, the tone of the pickups was the one bright spot of this guitar. They could work for a metal band, rock, classic rock, or blues.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend this instrument. I realize that there are quality control issues in any company, especially in instruments this inexpensive, but I shouldn't have to clean out a brand new guitar's electronics. The pickups are the only thing bringing this review up from being really bad. Please, friends - if you see this guitar, don't buy it. Just say no.
Well, nice guitar, enthusiasts SG apprcieront!
22 frets with a nice logo XII pearly a thinly Tune O Matic IDAL classic for all the bad dgouts Floyds roses that take sl'accord pa! of the knobs are classic but rglages assz prcis the handle? it's beautiful without a handle small pearl points!
With 22 frets it will not prfre guitar Steve Vai Marty Friedman or saw, to my taste CHAC difficult to acute ... but it's pretty ais to play (for a rock hard scratch the guns ... the pignoleur has Cacophony will surely feel like wading through mud!)
Ergonomics enjoyable, beautifully shaped lightweight ... but too bad, the handle fell like shit and if like me you play with your scratching your head well down will hit the ground trs faster if you release the handle.
Attention to obtain the desired sound, and if the guitar is wrong RULES (micro too low, strings too high ...) so dsasre ... do well gaffe is not a gibson which allows more j'men care less!
That its okay to make a hard mtal or the TDCA in fact I think the spirit is asss Submitted SG (+ acute that his brief ACDC LP ...)
but my two pair corp marshall 'jcm 2000 and 1960 it is crunch cabinet ... the clean sound is good, it could almost make you think a gibson one could almost make crassouille blues! the distortion is asss aggrssive bottom and push it over the treble level (black apprcieronts fans!)
Owner of the skyscraper since 8 months I used the guitar for like 2 scne (scratches back in fact) and it does not measure up to my Gibson Explorer ... But aside from a young guitarist will probably be delighted to acqurir a beautiful object like the sound with more than burying a valid hits sour sub brands and low price, for one low price! ! it's nice then do yourself a favor and stop buying imitations strato!
The beginning and amateur apprciront, the scratch of possdant MODELS MODEL + pros will find this a fair bit ...
if tomorrow I had to redo the selection of this purchase?? not sure, I had qqs scne difficulties with her
and trs is not good ... but see on other dates, until you try before you buy you would make the best views!
