3 inters on / off for the selection of microphones
Black color for mine

The handle end is extra nice to play (against the other, those who have had the opportunity to try my guitar found the handle odd at first, and yes it changes the handle of a Start!).
Its 3Kg580 and its general form allows you to play as well as sitting upright.
Access to the box 22 is easy.


It is quite versatile, great for the Hard Rock and a multi-effect ass we do what we want.
For heavy distortion, the hambucker is accurate with a big sound (lack of hair can be a potato from a Seymour Duncan, but nothing nasty).
For sounds clear, no surprises, my favorite config is:
hambucker the single neck pickup coupled with the (impossible to perform on a classical guitar with the switch)
This gives a warm sound even live in the amp.
Test with a Marshall Valvestate 8080 and Boss ME-5, currently G50RCD Marshall (no sound crazy but very good for the house) and Digitech GSP2101 + Boss GX700.


I bought 18 years ago with his hard-cover adapted to form for the sum of 4000Fr (approx. € 610). I bought a Samick after my first summer job I keep 3 or 4 years before they can invest in a "real" guitar.
What I like about this guitar's neck is extra fine.
What I like least ... well ... uh ... I'm still looking ..
With the Pro540 Power, I found the guitar of my dreams ... after 18 years, this has not changed, I am still not tired.
A purchase that I would do without hesitation. (And that's the time I had hesitated a BC.Rich with an exotic form, thank you for putting me Lolo in the right way :-)
