Atrics HEAVY "X"

Then the little information I could gather on this mark indicates that these guitars are manufactured in Asia.
This model includes a threaded sleeve 25 U boxes, rope traversing, and 6 traditonelles mechanical oil bath.
2 humbucker pickups type, 1 tone, 1 volume and a 3 position switch.
Solid alder body with a bird's eye maple table (very nice indeed, the color is darker in reality than in the photo), maple neck and rosewood fingerboard.

Strengths: the violin for the money (120 euros guitar): no visible defects, properly fitted sleeve and properly adjusted truss, pitch perfect.
nb: the tailpiece is of good manufacture, the pitch does not move once set (factory setting impeccable), no problem on that side.

Weaknesses: The mechanisms that tend to go awry after an hour of play to change thus the mechanics of your choice if you want to be alone.


In use: Weight very correct, I mean, you can easily play up two hours without feeling that a weight-related fatigue.
Very good sustain, surprising even handle very nice with good access to acute, sidelined on the other hand is quite dry and needs a light sanding with steel wool to be more enjoyable. At least one polishing with a product type which improves a little dusting the thing ... to each his own what =)

The original sound of the guitar is very good in everything that is typed classical, blues to rock. After this point no need to plague, heavy metal, although it's still playable and decent enough, the sound is not up to par.


If your style is classic, rather bluesy, rock or soft, then the original configuration is correct, although the violin pickups make the guitar, very good sustain, it approximates a Telecaster or a Stratocaster, but not more and have all the features. Harmonics come easily, plucked harmonics as the sound is quite crystalline, instead slamming good stroke of the note.

Distortion mode, it pulls out of the game but comes quickly out of breath if the gain is too depressed. It drool in the low and it becomes a bit messy. To start a guitar is more than enough there is something fun.

The basic sound deserves 7 out of 10, if based on a game that everything except metal, which requires a significant distortion.

Personally, I play a lot of blues guitar with another, and wanting to turn to a more metal style I did not disassemble the pickups from mine to change them. so I bought this guitar only for the violin (alder, maple), then I
mounted above a tandem emg 81/85. In addition to changing micro electronics emg provides complete (25k potentiometer, cable, jack .... the total) that was necessary for this guitar. (Basic electronics is pretty mediocre, with a little solder to the barbaric ...)
And then we wonder what is really in the hands. I will not repeat the apology emg pickups but the sound is impeccable, with a crazy sustain (including through the active micro), a clear hallucinnant, crunchy to perfection, super responsive and accurate and not a pet of breath .
c-mode distortion is the heavy artillery and we feel the handset alder / maple treble that his club and a cut with a scalpel. No flash, amazing precision and still sustain a madman. C big sound for Zaak Wylde, and pinch enchainent like to laugh.
With new pickups and new electronics, we get a very good guitar, which still requires a change in mechanics, but with a violin top.
After changing it deserves its 10/10.


For 120 euros, that's good, I've seen worse for more. I was a bit scared when I ordered but it is a wise choice.
Already in the beginning, there is nothing to do, the guitar is very positive as a whole.

For someone more confirmed, it requires change course, but the overall price in the end remains highly competitive, with a very good violin.

For info on my setup this guitar: guitar + EMG 81/85 + Grover: 120 140 75 = 335 euros.

And the final sound of hell, and a very nice look too. This choice I would do without hesitation, for lute and for the price.
