Caractristiques: al-Mahogany Body and neck: the mache is a party, the three-body (central spar and two wings), table Saddle flame glowing. Chinese manufacturing. -The wood of the key 24 boxes frets jumbon'est not given on the site Epiphone but it's not like the ebony at Mr. Tho said ... and touch it near the Rosewood although darker than rosewood, so I can not say what it is but it is definitely not a bne. The inlays are abalone button like on the head. Satin-handle the rear. Dor-Marine Tune-O-Matic with stop bar of a cot: Mechanical Grover on the other, a Knob volume push / pull to split the pickups, one in shade and a 3-way switch to control everything. Note that the pots have an inlay "eye catcher" in harmony with the table very original. The straps are crystal and classic positioned as an SG standard (an ass and a Behind the neck). Binding-white running along the neck and head. Dirty Fingers pickups, manufactured in the USA by Gibson. Analysis: The Chinese manufacturing has nothing envy of Made in Taiwan or Corea, the finish is top: no problem with the frets, impeccably painted binding, inlays and many original poses, modern design with a certain class, a little bling-bling for fans of "while noiiiiiiiiiir. Everything is flying and prtendre total versatility and 24 cases on an SG that's rare! In the black dots: no precision on all wood guitar on the site builder (mahogany o drying time? Wood the? Output Level and Impedance mics?) and it lacks a scroll strengthen the junction head / neck. [9 / 10]: production irreproachable but lacks some transparency on the site builder. NB: "they say" the fact qu'Epiphone end badly and Gibson guitars are some oftheir April but both firms vrifient ALL THAT end of the string guitars and rank several View Categories : The View Categories 1, best finient are sent to dealers and official View Categories 2 or 3, those with sagging or frets mel sizes are sent to Mr Th .. and consors. So for a good Gibs 'or a good Epi', go see your favorite store! Specific on and I, I absolutely do not work in the sale of instrument.

UTILIZATION

The neck is straight as a soldier of the guard rpublicaine day jogging prsidentiel, satin varnish is really hyper and pleasant, the associated U-shaped cut fairly flat, this is one of best round I've played. It feels good with the guitar on his knees but the head tends to fall, print confirmation when playing standing up, I nearly burst the glass coffee table in the first tune! The weight is perfect, not too heavy (I play mostly on a Les Paul ...) or too little, it seems to be something between what hands! CHAC is an acute to ease dconcertante, like any good SG. [7 / 10]: Balance of shit, time o Gibson made guitars that go all alone, they are not fucking fuck a little weight on the bottom of their guitars to equilibrate??

SOUNDS

I play lots of Rock and spineless mtal especially heavy type, neo, and many other core. I have a Peavey XXL amp (but I treat myself) Soon, replaced by an ENGL Powerball, an MXR KFK 12 band and my first Les Paul guitar is a team of Seymour Duncan Blackout. My sound, or at least that I am looking for is between the sound of heavy Metallica (Enter Sadman, The Judas Kiss) and the sound of Trivium (Like Light To The Flye). I chose this guitar for a little foray into sound more "warm" and "old school" my Blackouts (o the fact that I did not choose the version with EMG). His clear-The bridge pickup alone, it is double or splitter is a bit too tinny to be used srieusement, it will be perfect for a clean intro with some effects before sending the pure e without changing microphone in a piece of straight forward but it will not be "beautiful" to arpger in a power-ballad. The intermediate-position is very beautiful, hot and snapping a time (not very speaking) but by far my prefers. Split into a funk and his death are very stratodes, ideal for fun and worker Knofler. -The neck pickup is very round, bass a little too involved and requires the splitter to be exploited on a small blues. Only negatives-point of the split: loss of fat gain relative position twice. Its crunch: No test but discontent was surely as any fawn, only blueseux who may still read these lines are on life support ... Her Lead: "It is that the guitar offers all his talent: the bridge pickup is very full in the medium rather low and gives a very interesting texture to the rhythm, there is no output level of an asset but a good amp (test length on Diezel VH4 before purchase) gives excellent dynamics and especially sound really good, aggressive and "metal" very far from the EMG and size Blackout s very interesting but V to dmarquer a bit. The sustain is good, the guitar takes the feedback on the latest and the difference with the Les Paul I was not shocked. We can also make a getaway with the carefree punk guitar! In solid bridge pickup "sings" and "screaming" like never before! -The neck pickup is still very round and chorus type effects with discrete delay + medium and a grain can be clamped very unhurriedly shredder, the sound is magnificent. -The split has no interest into this topic, hand buzzer to the amp for an intro song like "I put in the old post road Galna Grandpa." [9 / 10]: very good sound, but the versatile split loses a lot of gain and positions are not simple gniak a telecaster (you can always dreaming ^ ^).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it three weeks, I have LOTS shot before taking it: I hold the same test but with the EMG 81/88 pair, the Epiphone Explorer with EMG 81/85 and ESP but this one of the microphones that captivates me the most a little more versatility thanks to the split, a good output level to use metal (though not extreme sr) and the color away the "I do metal, I play on black, black and black because all the metalheads are in black (my Les Paul is white with black binding). The report qualitprix is ​​unbeatable, especially in this version store irreproachable and the tech RULES! I would resume his eyes closed! For blackheads, the only real teachers are the equilibrium and the lack of punch mics split [7 / 10]: given the price, microphones U.S. this quality is simply amazing and handle satin ... aaaarrrgh really very pleasant! Still, the balance o assurment it would possible to do something (a little technical lead in the cavity or around the jack ...).

Edit: I'm making a small change to my final note, I descend from 9 7 as the mechanics, although "mark" (Grover), take the agreement really hurts especially when changes in tuning During a BPS. May be it is also the handle end of ...
