Start imitation made in China, 22 frets, 3 single coil pickups, vibrato. Controls: 1 volume and 2 tone, 5-way switch.
Fingerboard: Rosewood
Neck: Maple
Body: Alder


The handle is quite enjoyable handling, although I think it frieze too (I did not yet test all settings), access to the latest box is not difficult.
The finish is on the whole damn well, even if the mcaniques and vibrato (not that I use) are frankly not terrible
The shape of the stratum is still going to play standing or sitting, and the weight of the guitar (rather light) can not break your back.


I play quite different styles zik, (Red Hot Nofx, through Oasis and many others ....) and I think frankly that this is more scratch east for clean sounds, or get (with a marshall amp transistor) sound quite right. on the other hand regarding saturated sounds is more difficult, even if the amp is not perfect from this point of view, I find that even when the sound is too metal (no pun intended: p )


In conclusion, I would just say that I find the comments already this Article Submitted too severe, even if I do not have much experience in the university of scratches, even when I rebel.
It is clear that this guitar is far from exeptionnelle, but personally I got 145 (in left-handed model!) And that for that price I am not dcu! It is true that compared to a "Gibson" (to use the comparison made somebody I do not know o. ..) It has to laugh, but it's not good for the same budget, so I think we should compare what is comparable.

Apart from its saturated vibrato and some a little ugly, this guitar is pretty good, with a ratio of price and quality finish correct.
