Corp. and Mahogany
Rosewood fingerboard
Neck Shape: Slim Rounded (not Rounded less round than my sg 12 strings)
22 frets, mechanical tulip,
The big plus, microphones: 2 x 57 Classic
And the highlight of the show: a "vibrato" (other) Sideway, a strange contraption.


As stated above, I prefer the slim profile Rounded Rounded but it is very enjoyable to play.
Weight Sideway well compensates the small weight of the head (compared to the 12 strings) and suddenly it is very stable and is well in position on the thigh, and yes I play seated.
Good on the other hand, it comes in 009/046, and there me I have a lot of trouble, I've passed the 010/046 c is already places but the next c is 011/048.
The Sideway, so that's what this thing, I think it is more of that tremolo vibrato.
The holding of the agreement is unlikely when the drives upwards (relaxed strings)
For cons, the magic appears when the low hand you operate the handle in waves like that by chance is flat, and you get a kind Fender tremolo or the odd chorus (Univibe) which is the 2nd effect the Rotovibe Dunlop.
The same result with the speed you like for it is your hand that the pace of chorus.
Quite dispute of vibrato stratovolcano, also of the springs being mounted inversely to the action of the stratovolcano, which confirms that it is rather up and down that it must operate the.
The rendering is really nice and different from the standard vibrato.


The classic 57! What killer!
Big sound gibson like in disks that I love!
Severe hearts and I do not even have it on my Marshall tried again.
Need I say more?
Gibson sound by excellence!
D Also, if I win the lottery, I pay 2 classic 57 for 12 strings.


Less than a week of use, that happiness except the ropes yet.
The sideway is trying everything depends on everyone but hey I spend my life playing with a vibrato so c is a plus.
Very beautiful violin and color rather than cherry mahogany in the strict sense.
This is not the cheapest Gibson, but far from being the most expensive and also not bad equipped.
M which had conquered before the purchase without trying:
Microphones, the Sideway, quality wood announced some details that give the impression to pay a custom shop without losing a leg during the transaction ......
Result: rather really happy with the gift that I did!

If I do not put 10/10, c is because it lacks the historical and the manual for the sideway.
He could have done a little good practice guide for the stuff demo
And I am not convinced that the sideway can really be called a vibrato, tremolo effect I would say.
Yeah, but ballo c is a perfect thing to be perfect!
