It is all assembled in England says the site. on the other hand I can not find where the components are manufactured. Note, as there Guvnor wrote on absolutely all parts (even behind the mechanics, if, if) you're sure it's the Guvnor.
It's a floating bridge without rope blocks, with a tremolo that can pitch up and down, like a Bigsby. Well that's the theory, because if the tremolo effect works well in it out of tune my guitar so I removed the rod. Note I do not care, I'm using it anyway, but it was nice, it gave him an air of Cyclone.
The pickups are two humbuckers conventional (on-site, these are so-called Alnico V which are used for the neck pickup) and a neck and bridge single coil in middle position, driven by a 5-position switch that must make my ear single handle - handle + middle - the middle one - middle + bridge - bridge alone.
One thing to note, as any guitar that gives an impression of beautiful materials, the pickguard in perloid is magnificent, it is the opposite compared to that of a U.S. Fender. And real metal buttons are clumsy. Speaking of which, the binding timber cream is very nice too.
The neck slides very well despite the absence of thick varnish, it is very comfortable, reminiscent of a Tele. I play mostly sitting, and it is very comfortable. I do not find it very light but must say that my other guitar is a Danelectro, so obviously ... The shape of the head is nice and the pearl inlay Guvnor is very successful. The general shape of the guitar was a bit surprised at first but now that I'm used to it, access to high notes is flawless, the guitar is well balanced for my playing position and has a shape both classical and very original ... Success!
The sound ... well ... When I took it out of the box, I played unplugged, like everyone else does and I told myself "what is this thing, I got ripped off." I had a little sweat. Then I plugged in my Fender Champion 600, and it was two hours before my wife managed to drag me away. The sound is KILLER for a guitar of this price. It sounds like a hybrid (I'm sorry it'll be a little rave) between a Mustang and a Jazzmaster, it can do very acidic / sharp / sharp in a surf style and also and fatter. On the neck pickup alone, it happens to sound really metal, even if it's not the guitar I would use for that. The best sounds are achieved by playing with the microphone in the middle and the tone knob. And I know it's the guitar that I'm hearing because as you know the champion 600 has only... a volume knob. With the Simulations (Revalver / AmpliTube fender) that I use, it sounds really good, and my laney tube, ditto.
I've had a month and a half and I play it everyday. And I still wonder how I managed to buy such a guitar for 150 euros. New, it is like 250 including shipping !!!!!! I also strongly conceille to buy on ibays England, the official vendor makes excellent prices. As I know since I have not long since, but question its money is the best deal I made. Plus she is super nice .... My only regret is the tremolo, but the quality of the bridge offsets. The materials seem solid and the quality of workmanship is impeccable. My benchmark for guitar is the Gibson Nighthawk I had several years and even though obviously this is less good (she is 7 times less expensive), it is not 7 times less good!
In 2055, I think that an guitarist of a famous group will buy one a 15 euros in a garage sale, and Guvnors will become the Teisco of the time ... Do not wait, buy one before then...
