    Copy Strato for the handle (rosewood) and body (alder flame).
    3 single pickups with Hohner Systm ATN sense simulate various sounds (humbucking / jazz semi-caisse/accoustique). Mcaniques oil bath two guide ropes on the head. Vibrato knife. Slecteur 5 positions.

    UTILIZATION

    Flat handle and plutt wide. Trs comfortable. Play an equivalent quality Strato Std.
    For sounds, the ATN sytme promised much ... Browsing for little. No wonder no electronic! Otherwise, sounds good trs "phase out", clear and rich in mdium.Pour positions 1/2/3, I see nothing unusual.

    Type blues-rock, the ST 59 Pro is its ease in clean or overdrive with a lightweight.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have over ten years. She did not move. She then had to rate in 2500 francs.J 'loves the table and the fawn pickgard nacre. Damn mouth for this copy that is well worth the strata made in Japan and other cons.

    Construction is Korean.
    The rest is a copy of Start, 22 frets,

    3 micros simple, unknown brand, possibly designed by

    The bridge is similar to a strat US deluxe, but much lower quality.
    1 volume, 2 tones.
    A 5-way switch.
    Hohner has used this technology scratches stamped
    ATN (Advanced Tonal Network) which allowed them according to
    obtain a wide range of tone.

    The handle is flat as a flounder (not radius), not too fine, profile D, the key
    looks like rosewood. (And I can confirm that no, it's not ebony. I have several guitars with ebony fingerboard, ebony and even not quite clear what grain).
    Mechanics has not been marked, all hardware is gold in color but fade with time, giving
    one side a little vintage that I like.
    The body is in a timber that is unknown to me, veined with a varnish
    trasparaitre leaving the wood grain. The effect is frankly
    fun to watch. But the varnish is still very thick. It must stifle a lot of wood and resonance.
    After removal of the plates, we can realize that it is not plywood, but solid. is reassuring!
    The plaque at the base of the handle (screw, it goes without saying), the back is golden and embossed
    with the logo of the brand and serial number, it's pro in appearance.
    The guitar is quite heavy, I'll come back later.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is quite nice, much nicer than a lot of copies of strats, and this despite the complete absence of radius (it would have been better with), fast enough, do not exceed the frets on the edges are polished. Just a reproach to the varnish on the back of the neck that will not slip enough for my taste but nothing too bothersome.

    Access to treble is fairly good access to the box on the 22nd
    Grave E string without too much fight in a sitting position.
    Not exceptional for a form strata; classic.

    In terms of ergonomics, we are in the form so the strat
    forms embrace the body. Nothing surprising about that.
    on the other hand, big surprise: the weight! It's incredibly heavy.
    Yet he has gone from scratch in my hands, and all
    my guitars, this one is among the heaviest.
    Not tested again, but I'm sure that after four hours, we
    a trace of the strap encrusted on the shoulder.

    For sound, capable of using as the ... means but not the worst, but
    that's another story that we will see more ...

    For weight -1, -1 for the absence of radius and -0.5 for the sound can be improved
    arf, there's no halfway point, well, well it will be -3.

    EDIT: Some criticisms of design. Hohner has chosen the party not to comply
    the exact location of the holes for the front and rear plates of strato, forcing the body to have to re-drilling to fit standard plates.
    Strangely, I also had to cut the new plate which does not pass in the handle.
    Attention, with some tie a little high, setting the bridge becomes almost impossible, the race of the screws supporting the springs at the rear looks to me too short. The tie is ideal for me 9-42
    The bridge looks to me pretty poor anyway.

    SOUNDS

    It should in my style of music, we'll say yes, I use
    no big distos so it suits me.

    I tested it in a Head Hughes & Kettner Tour Reverb, Fender Dual Showman and a cabinet with an H & K AC412.
    So, let's clean sounds.
    It's the middle of the skyscraper, you feel that there is a potential
    is there but the microphones are not always up to par,
    Intermediate positions are interesting, the micro serious
    has a color a little greasy, velvety, the medium is a bit flashy
    and treble, depending on the tones can range from not bad to frankly
    means. There is the "bell tone" (Ringing Bell) classic stratum, which is not bad
    This is not the great panacea. And we feel a lack of definition
    in the bass.
    The attack is not very honest, it does not "slap" them.
    And dynamics is not very extensive.

    The turn of the crunch sounds!
    Ah well it looks like it is designed for that, it's dirty
    desire as what I expect from these sounds, and whatever the
    microphones! Always that slight lack of definition in the bass
    I deplore.
    Well, it means, but ...
    It engages the distortion.
    Well, scratch that is not made to play metal, it sounds
    rock, post-rock, hard-blues, hard rock old-school not too bad.
    It's fun no more. And even weakness in the damn cete
    serious.
    The distortion sounds are good but not transcendent.

    I do not see what brings ATN compared to a configuration
    classic.

    Although I think the sound seems hard enough, the sounds are
    over many copies of strats other brands.
    Moreover, the sound is already typed strat although
    quality is a disadvantage with the original e-mail.

    Violin making me look good on the body to warrant a new mail, but not sure quil to be the same for the handle.
    And I must think to change the bridge of doom.

    The original pickups are really not up to par.

    EDIT: A few months later, I get new pickups, the GFS alnico blues.
    The clean sound is better, less serious "sounding" less rough.
    Mediums are velvety, and treble level in returning.
    The dynamic is markedly improved.
    Very large increase in the harmonics. They obtained more easily. But hey, still not sustain and it is still not a panacea ...

    I have not deleted the ATN system, which apparently is mounted in place of a condenso that should be there and I feel that the damn system ATN night away more than anything else.
    I try to learn more before making the change.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Tested a few years ago, and received today, I needed a
    itch too expensive for me to type delusions of customization, and I think I is the ideal medium for that.
    Moreover, the model I had a few scratches and a nice
    scratch in the varnish that provide visual side rock'n'roll / live
    I can not afford to have on my other guitars.

    If I tried other guitars before? While there, yes, and all sorts!
    of the stratum to the SG through the Les Paul and other semi-boxes.
    But it's more for fun and the ability to fully customize the scratches that I acquired.
    The tests were not that important.

    Although the absence of the radius does not interfere, it would have been much better if the handle had one.

    Given the price for which I got it (160 € fdp included), and even the price at which it was at its output, the report Quait / price is right!
    Possess a beginner is a nice instrument to learn guitar. Body and handle are not bad. But against, all the electronics and mechanical to be replaced because very low end.

    Ok, I put a small 6 for these defects but it is a guitar
    beginner, do not expect wonders.
    Albeit a Tubescreamer, the delay and a Fender, I see or put on some pieces.

    If I would do this choice, if you read my mind, you will understand
    yes.

    For the construction says it all does.
    It is a Stratocaster copy Fidler enough in shape and dimensions. The body, I think is in Saddle: it is quite heavy. But for me it plutt good sign.

Unlike conventional MODELS, sounds can be obtained depending on the trs DIFFERENT rglage volume. I play a lot in its saturated. And at the Premire grip, I got t trsdu sound. With the knob back on its draft silent trs, trs Hendrixien even, but without pedals ... APRS, the usual electronic m'tre if particulire, I have a guitar in his Discoveries ample, vintage, powerful and prcis (provided you do not jou background) . The clean sounds are good and less subject to the effects of Systm (ATF).

    SOUNDS

    This guitar should have done my whole style of music is classic 50/60 rock'n'roll, blues-rock. I play (the countryside on weekends) on a Fender amp transistor 15 w and I get a powerful and wide.
    Moreover, for example, nothing beats a good dmonstration, I invite you watch this video:


    So, ds that we are accustomed to Systm ATF was in the hands of a true vintage Stratocaster at the trs and powerful!
    Besides, I think the pickups are good and in any case certain size for the ATF Systm. So I change them deprecated. Except, change the entire electronic and thus disassemble the Systm ATF and replace it with an electronic classic.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 years. CASH EXPRESS bought in for 100 euros, by the time my guild had lch report quality price is extraordinary for a Stratocaster suprieure MODELS Mexican and some models amricains for that amount!
    I'm so apprci this guitar, as I had two.
    But I did not keep the deuxime because the former Owner 'had changed the pickups for alnico blues. Or totally changed the sound and silent silent trsdcevant same (flat and no saturation n'tait possible)!

    So, finally a good trs guitar really cheap. An electronic do not touch. Except, perhaps be, if we change intgralement.
