Korean made guitar, basswood body US (basswood), handle Saddle Rosewood 22 frets, floyd licensed, 2 Ibanez pickups replaced with Dimarzio Steve's Special (and Fred) and Paf pro, one volume, one tone with push pull.

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice, but fast. We are halfway between the handles for ultra classic Ibanez and a handle of strata. It's comfortable, you feel comfortable right away on the handle which is good when even faster.
For the rest of the guitar is trslgre (3.2 kilos) and plutt small fine. For a small jigs is impeccable. "
However I struggled with the bridge LO TRS 2. Both the original Floyd on my ESP does not move a muscle, as this one is drgle when we play a bit of vibrato, has quickly become agaant.

SOUNDS

The sounds are not too bad, even if I stay on my hunger. Esssaye on my Vox AD 30, I find the sound quite double "soft" and trs round but tend imprcis enough. In the light splits are effective but sounds a little stiff and not trs hot, saturated in the paf pro gives roundness and warmth to the sound but it lacks something. In the Steve's Special bridge yet built for his solos gives a powerful but rough, coarse limit. I think that has to come from the violin, not really got my top. Evidence when I go to my JS ESP (alder) without touch the volume knob, the stratum has made a most important, it seems that the violin "door" sound, I do not feel with JS. And yet I have this impression of a small Vox, imagine a real amp lampes.Ayant chang the microphone to a Fred, it's less powerful but much more prcis.

OVERALL OPINION

Finally saw the price remains even when good but not excellent, probably the fault of violin making. Curious about how sound the 1000 JS ct .....

I confirm what many say, the lime is not the best wood for scratching. I could compare that with my Stratocaster alder ESP but enough to say that alder is more rsonnance over susain, brightness and clarity.
The lime is to benefit only a more round and a lower density.

For the price of nine (approx 1100) is a bit expensive given the quality is too bad. Go 8 / 10, and may be less if I had the real test MODEL, with Ibanez pickups.

Assets:
- Sounds good in all
- Guitar trslgre
- Run fast

Cons:
- Violin making more questionable
- No vibrato top
