Guitar Used purchased in Morocco, no idea of the place of manufacture.
Rosewood 24-round boxes, maple, rosewood key in beautiful landmarks with "logo" of beauty.
Strato-type bridge with cast saddles, and six screws.
-Three microphones: HSS configuration with a double in a simple interédiaire easel, and another single in the neck position pickups of unknown origin. surely dean.
-Three knobs, one volume for the three microphones, one tone knob for the neck pickup, and another for the central micro, no tone control for bridge pickup.
-Mechanical oil bath super precision, taking the agreement so impressive!
-Handle is screwed with huge SIX screws on a metal plate about four inches long, which has an angle which refines the junction body / sleeve junction which is the 19th box!
"It may be a detail, but the input jack so" ibanez steve vai "very convenient, with a very solid blockage catch, impossible to lose his jack on stage!
-Varnish is very thin, a real treat.
The handle has a particular profile, it begins in C well rounded, ending in D flat over compensating for the width of the handle allows for exactly the same position of the thumb in any case, the jumbo frets are perfect, Rosewood and the key is the most beautiful I have ever seen on a guitar so far. I think that the handle is the most enjoyable I've played.
the heel is very thin, access to acute no problem.
the weight is well distributed, with the shape of the table and cutting the back, it is even more comfortable than the strato, rg and company, really the perfect shape.
the sound is a bit more complicated, the bridge pickup is not adjustable in pitch, it is based on this one to set the amp, and the rest sounds good with these settings.
I play blues, metal, hard rock, it follows very well in all styles, with a simple micro-well rich mids and bass, slamming just right, you get jazz and reggae sounds with no problem except in an intermediate position handle / center where you get a sound to the edge of the cold, I can not explain it, the pickups sound great alone, and center / bridge. distortion in the sounds are really nice solos to Led Zeppelin to the big heavy riffs well, anything is possible.
bridge pickup, however, is quite cold, but it's a bomb, a huge output level, and a formidable precision and sharp! you can play with a big distortion such as "death metal" amp with a background that it does not drool.
short, one very rich, full of harmonics, and this, even on a rotten amp (even the "made in china G250" it sounds!!
I put 9 because of the combination of microphones "hose / center" not really usable, and the coldness of the bridge pickup in clean, not eight, given the staggering of the other positions.
I used Seux years later resold to a coincidence of needs in large pigeon and a fortune, I still regret to have been sold ...
This scraper is super strong, next, even the fragile parraissent me paul (at setting the neck, because I assure you that the six large screws on the plate that impresses gégantesque), the big potato for the distortion, the well warm on micro simple handle perfect, the look (mine was red ferrari with black hardware ...
I tried a lot of models before and have played with this Arpes scratches, some fender deluxe is the same level of the microphones simple, jackson pro series mounted duncan have a comparable distortion, but I not yet found a guitar that combines the two, with a handle that fits all styles of play
roughly less than 700 euros for the sound Posot easel, and months of 2000 euros for a simple microphones, no guitar did comes close!
my having paid 200 euros used because there was work to do on the easel, a fret to change, and that no one luthier in Morocco, the real deal in gold!
I would buy again in a heartbeat if I had this guitar on occasion, by the way, if you read this notice and you are getting one, tell me where!
