Apparently, it's a guitar made to US
-It has 22 frets, two pickups and a Jackson Jackson single double active in the bridge position
Bridge-Jackson, licensed Floyd Rose, very effective power cord
-1 Volume, 2 tone, 3 switches ON / OFF (1 for each pickup)
-Maple neck thin enough and fast key rosewood frets Jumbo (large) and I-pearl inlays in shark teeth.

UTILIZATION

-The handle is very nice and well finished, the varnish is excellent.
-Access to treble is good.
-The shape is very well suited for games and sitting upright, for against the weight, ouch ouch ouch! (But hey it's not real wood plywood éhhé!)
-This guitar sounds very good in general, I use pots with a bottom,...…

-Access to treble is good.
-The shape is very well suited for games and sitting upright, for against the weight, ouch ouch ouch! (But hey it's not real wood plywood éhhé!)
-This guitar sounds very good in general, I use pots with a bottom, no specific settings.
For use, the big plus is the on / off switch for the microphones that allow complete freedom of combination of positions. (Eg, all together, one by one, etc ...) In addition, this system is very convenient to cut short the sound of the guitar without using the volume knob
She would like very much the agreement thanks to its power cord and floyd works very well and is very pleasant to use especially as the whammy bar screws do not fit but as a jack (great huh?)

SOUNDS

- It's a fairly versatile guitar, even though it sounds extremely good for metal, I play pop-rock metal with electro and I do not need to change his guitar for a nice and clean that sends a distortion!
-I play with the scratches by taking 10.46, connected to an ENGL and it rocks. The gain of ENGL at 2 in the lead channel and a distortion already monstrous jai, jai compared with a conventional skyscraper and I can not find as many potatoes and energy.
-We get a little bit of everything with this guitar, a rich and pleasant clean neck pickup to a crunch in very Péchu pickup and with a good distortion amp nickel is for all types rock to metal, the sound is energetic and set attacks and in the pure harmonic.
Still, it's still a very rich bass guitar and can get a little overwhelming on this point is be careful to not over exaggerate on eq

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 5 years and although I sometimes questioned by believing in lack of clarity or other reasons, in fact I realized that the more I increased in the range of amp etc and she followed and what was the height.
- What jaime most about this guitar is his personality look, sound and more like the little switch and whammy bar. I have a Charvel will fly with and it is very convenient. I like the least weight but at the same time is a guarantee of quality.
"I have used many models before they have even today and find the same quality I would have put an excessive price in most makes and jai still hard to get used to other sleeves less pleasant, less cared to finish etc. ...

Place of Manufacture: USA
Maple neck, rosewood key, key benchmarks triangular head with 6 lifts banana oil bath and nut block chords
Active electronics powered by a 9V battery;
Two microphones and a simple double Jackson;
3 switches on / off, 1 vol, 2 tone
Jackson floating bridge (a real misery for the set)
C handle very fine and ultra-fast, jumbo frets, 24 frets

UTILIZATION

This guitar has everything a Start except the handle is very thin and flat, which really Shifts all eccentricities. At first I had a little trouble getting used to the key benchmarks. Given their size, we are more in contact with the mother rather than wood, but hey, it does not affect the game

The balance of the guitar is good, as well as access to acute who is facilitated by the fineness of the handle. It thickens slightly beyond the 17th box.
Instrument designed for big sound, its three active pickups deliver a terrible potato. No feedback, no breath, no snoring. You can send without restraint. The sustain is good, without more, probably because of the vibrato. The sound palette is interesting because you can combine leisure with each microphone with that of your choice. In any case it sounds, as well as its clear that saturated. The clear sounds are clear and frank, but a little cold for my taste. Forget the crystalline sounds that you could get a real Start. on the other hand, if you have a good rack of effects, it's time to use it and exploit it.
Excellent saturation of the deposit that humbucker really. Small flat, it lacks a tad serious. Only remedy, a careful equalization amplifier stages.
For the rest, nothing to say, except perhaps in terms of the réfglage vibrato which proves to be particularly sensitive when changing strings. In the event, plan one second if you scratch the scene.

SOUNDS

I bought this guitar there are a lot of years, because at the time I played the big rock.
I used a small combo Marshall 30 watt, a rack and a Alesis MIDIVERB Rocktron, which was more than enough.
I simply point out that this instrument has been designed for those who use and abuse of large saturations good "fit in".

OVERALL OPINION

Guitar purchased long ago at "Lead Guitar", when Charvel / Jackson distributed instrument to look very "fenderien" but with a relatively modern concept (adding a humbucker, neck with 2 octaves full, active electronics and a floating bridge).
Conclusion:
Model of excellent craftsmanship in both the violin as electronics. These guitars are sadly no longer manufactured and those that are sometimes unearthed on the second hand market have sometimes not aged well. In most cases, the vibrato is out of order and must be replaced. It may therefore be appropriate to acquire such a tool for customizing.
A very good note, so
