Vintage Icon VS6 Jr
See previous opinion

UTILIZATION

Really an excellent replica of the Gibson SG Junior 1964.

The weight is identical to the original: 2kg500
Mechanical buttons are the same as on the original, ditto for the chavalet which also serves tailpiece.
His appearance "aged" is very successful, both in terms of the color at the level of the hardware that will even up screw heads damaged and rusted.
featherweight it is like any SG with a tendency to dive head so that imbalance in the game up (I can add weight in the cavity of the potentiometers to balance the beast.
The handle is very comfortable with a very easy access to acute (SG what!).
The mieene was almost perfectly set upon arrival, having changed the strings, I would make a few adjustments, but not much, the action is low and the handle perfectly straight so it does not frieze.
The strips are perfectly finished and polished edges.
The varnish is matt (old way) thumb slips neatly onto the back of the handle.
Micro and acastillage Wilkinson, I have several guitars fitted with Wilkinson and thank you for the money because it's all really good value.

SOUNDS

Then on the sound!

Equipped with a P90, this type of microphone is not height adjustable (dog ears), in this case it is necessary to unscrew the 6 pin microphone to adjust the power.
The advantage is that you can perfectly balance ENTERED string them.
After doing this with new ropes .............. Wouahhhh thick sound and the grain so special to P90.
Wilkinson P90 is really good, once properly adjusted it is quite up to the original.
This guitar is very versatile is made for the Rock with his Crunch or more saturated.
Its clear she is not doing bad either.

OVERALL OPINION

I month.

For comparison I have a Gibson SG Standard
but also three other Vintage:
SG VS6 GO (copy of SG guitarist Graham Oliver SAXON group)
V6 Icon (Copy of Blakie Eric Clapton)
Low VJ96 (Freetless copy of the bass Jaco Pastorius)

Needless to say, I love this brand ............ So to return to the Junior VS6 is at the height of her girlfriends.

I like this guitar is in simplicity, no bling bling, a single microphone and a SON!

After this is certainly less likely to dive head side, but I'll address it.

Value for very good price, this is not only an instrument for beginners as some might think.
If you want a good and simple cut for rock guitar, you can darken you will not be disappointed

loveindo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" SUPER SCRAPER"

Vintage Icon VS6 Jr
- Guitar made in China
- Hardware and microphones WILKINSON
- Wraparound
- 22 Frets
- Micro P90
- 1 volume and 1 tone
- Mahogany body and neck (body two parts)
- Rosewood
- Guitar look very authentic relic

UTILIZATION

Round super nice (at least for me, because I have large hands and the handle is rather large), it glides well.
Super ergonomic access to all acute what is better normal, it is a SG.
Featherweight: not more than 3 kg
Easy to use knob 1 flight and 1 tone (I have replaced original mounting SG 50's)
Would very well agree.
Maybe some defects finishes (inlay handle a little plastoc and a slight overflow between black handle and key, but really not very obvious)

SOUNDS

This guitar should completely my style of music being a fan of Louis Bertignac.
I tried a lot of P90 with this guitar and in the end I went back to the original microphone, which for me was the best in definition and power.
Warning, this guitar is not the most versatile, but what sound! with the P90, bold and rocky wish.
Moving from a light crunch to anything with a good saturation of the pick attack, micro very responsive.
I recently bought a Gigson SG, and I said at the beginning that was my Vintage pale next to Gibby.
But nay, it was enough to set a good microphone and then there is more to be ashamed of the price difference and the mark on the head.
Indeed Gibson pickups are set close to the strings at the origin, which is not the case on the vintage. Plots by setting a good plot for mettres closer to the strings and there is America, a much more punchy and biting.
Now I say it in a more incisive than the crystalline and Gibson.

I play on an amp all-tube Bugera V22, certainly not the best, but to good reviews on quite a site.
And I also play a head VHT Special 6 Ultra.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for over two years and am very satisfied, after some good settings it can even compete with guitars much more prestigious.
It was the only SG Junior I tried, since I have other guitars with P90, it is truly a micro that I love.
What I like most about this guitar is its vintage look, its simplicity, ease of handling and the SOUND!
The price / quality ratio is + that correct, although I have seen it again - expensive on other sites.
I would do this choice without hesitation.
It is closer to Gibson SG Junior older models than Gibson out now (heated maple fretboard, knobs and not to the same location as the original).
In short, a super scraper!
