Indonesia it seems to me, the color is actually a 2-tone tobacco sunburst the most beautiful effect.
Basswood body (basswood), the plate-to-HSS strat, 24 frets, fretted medium profile handle more than C wizard and so much better it has better hand.
Vibrato 2 points super comfortable (no screw-eating palm) and mechanical quality. I've changed for locking KLUSON however, 35 roros and holding agreement is very good at this, even abusing vibrato.
Microphones Powersound not bad, just in the middle is RWRP noise and therefore the double is splittable.
Amazing this price level, the volume knob is equipped with capacitor magic (no treble loss when you turn down the volume!) ...
Master tone with good curve, suitable for those who love.
The frets are perfectly placed, both in height and width, thank you Ibanez.
In fact the price does not play at all, it could cost three times more.
The handle is a treat because not too thin, but wide enough, it is relaxing and fast at the same time. Over its curve on the sides makes the game-inch above pleasant, which fits well with the spirit of the vintage guitar.
Ergonomics person does not look better, and it's not a scoop. Perfect balance standing as sitting, no gene buttons, etc..
The head is tilted, good pressure strings on the nut (no need to string-trees that are only amateur DIY anyway).
Zero game handle in the slot, it is the hair, pro. In addition, the heel is shaped, nothing mind if in fact the yngwie lézégus.
Important because often not noticed, the tremolo arm snaps easily (no need to screw) AND is adjustable in its freedom of movement (mini-imbued in the block under the plate holding the jumpers) and this is the class.
Compared to my ex grg1221 and though the woods are the same it is very different.
The one hand vibrato, especially microphones attached plate give the fender sound actually. This is slamming and clear here.
Against by the microphones, although healthy, are rather slender, lack of material and character. For the price it says nothing of course.
However, I had a SH 1 bridge sleeping so I installed it and it is very good now, always and especially in the spirit of vintage guitar.
For that matter I bought a single emg s2 to keep him company but the result is not better than the original so no single bowl.
I mainly used VOX AC15 and bugera 1990, but little because of the emg not terrible (and change involves everything apart, bof not fried).
Originally it was not bad, ultimately changing the humbucker only it's all good.
Especially since you can cabler simple series genre differently and there is more fat while remaining defined and free of parasites.
I was waiting for this model for ages, rg fan but also tobacco burst strat and architecture in wizard handle this would never have done.
The value is sidereal, Toto currently offers the 180!
At this price you add 35 mechanical blocking, 80 for a humbucker class, and you have a beautiful guitar course to fall and very effective.
