UTILIZATION

To be clear, the guitars made today in Asia do not necessarily have a bad violin.
It is above all a question of 'specifications' and from this point of view G & L seems to have a very serious book.

I had a Mexican Strat, and the equivalent price lutherie (finishes) is much better on the G & L, not to mention the G & L pickups that are past the fender for a 'nice' guitar.

This is a very easy to play guitar, slide the handle alone.

The frets are a bit sharp on the sides but does not prevent the good playability of this instrument.

SOUNDS

The Stratocaster guitar is a pretty versatile and it is even more true with this G & L!

His horns lime and rosewood fingerboard gives it a sound Putôt round, with good bass present midrange / treble balanced and not aggressive.

The highlight of this guitar is clear (no pun intended) microphones.

Each one of the five positions provides specific sounds, it is not simply add midrange / treble to your sound, but you change the sound.

For example, the neck pickup is more 'woody', with low round with a dominant soft enough.

The neck pickup coupled with the micro center, it radically changes the sound, his breathing, he is more 'bubbly' steeper.
Bluesman for this position coupled with a slight overdrive and you sound Stevie Ray Vaughan!

The sounds are beautiful, airy with beautiful harmonics, and a very expressive touch that makes all the nuances.

Must still specify that it is not a vintage sound that is more modern, making it very versatile guitar. In the neck position, obtained by playing with tone, a very jazzy, it's amazing!

I owned a Fender strat classic player 60, with its decidedly vintage except in a register that blues / rock (in which she excelled), was not very comfortable in other styles.

The knobs are progressive, dual fulcrum bridge is an example of stability and seems indestructible.

Vibrato on the stem, there is a screw in fender as that requires the rod back every time.
Here it sinks and locks with a screw, so you always wear your vibrato hand where you want!

The tuners are good bills and keep tuning well, they repprochera still a lack of precision.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 years and for the price, I am always surprised by the quality of this instrument.

In summary I would say that this is a real alternative to Fender and like many others before me, I willingly abandoned and swear loyalty to Fender G & L Tribute series which on its leaves no chance to Fender Stratocaster and the Telecaster medium ranges.

So I do not imagine the luxury!

For those who do not have the opportunity to try it, here's a video with sound is pretty faithful
