    SOUNDS

    N'esprez not sound the Gibson drooling!
    I played with a classic 30 peavez all lamps.
    adgage saturax far less crunch too plain (I have another guitar for a!)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good quality for money.
    His best quality round trs fast vibrato at the top.
    His biggest default: clean sounds.
    It is exclusive as its name indicates and despite the splits!
    I will exprience with a Vigier Excalibur plutt for in addition to the beautiful sounds clear, but it is not the same price.
    Not at all suited for the blues.
    This guitar lacks characters. Everything is smooth and there was no drooling.
    That said the handle is a highway for solo, finishing tip top, unlike some amricaines Chres more!
    The pickups are powerful trs. The vibrato is imprial but perfectible Systm home (it tends to dvisser quickly).
    Mcaniques trs good. The key is silky. Feedback to fuse ... if we play with fingers.
    Great thanks to the split versatilis but lacks a button Tone. The single coil is a little too straight and too powerful, we would like a slightly less level to attack or other casseroles funkeries

    It has 3 pickups (H / S / H). The two coils are dual branded DI MARIZIO (Air area and air classic) and the single coil Seymour Duncan (SSL 5). The pickup selector knob and PUSH PULL (ie is pulled on the knob and it couples the single humbucker bobnage: very effective!) Provide access to 9 different combinations of coupling micro.
    The body is basswood (light) with blue marble finish. The Canadian maple neck with 24 frets to the body is screwed to the 17-18th case which gives excellent access to acute (above the heel is contoured at the junction body / sleeve).

    The body is basswood (light) with blue marble finish. The Canadian maple neck with 24 frets to the body is screwed to the 17-18th case which gives excellent access to acute (above the heel is contoured at the junction body / sleeve). Little Guitar leave such freedom of play in the treble. The fingerboard is rosewood and is well made scaloppée (in ground) from the 18th case (we like or not like it ...)
    The locking vibrato is licensed FLOYD. It works perfectly. But I had the opportunity to use which gives a better sense of robutesse higher than lag. It still works correctly and is very good agreement.
    General excellent comfort, with a handle very fast (ideal for playing steve vai and other crazy technique).
    8 / 10 because of the vibrato. (If 9 / 10)

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is exceptional. We really draw sheet.
    Access to acute excellent thanks to the joint body / handle the case 17/18e + profiling of the junction.
    The guitar is very light (but the lime is fragile so be careful!).
    Easily obtained a good sound. The sounds are generally pretty clean (ideal for metal and solos).

    SOUNDS

    Already without plugging the guitar you can feel it sounds very clear, precise and balanced.
    Once plugged into a good tube amp. All combinations of microphones can be used.
    The microphone is quite acute puisssant crunch and rapidly clear sound. In saturated it hard outright (I play mostly metal) a lot of bass is very defined (c no porridge) and very clean, it can make powerful solos to John Petrucci. For some reproach against his own side too, which does not bleed! (But you can not have everything)
    The microphone is nice in his grave clear. It sounds to warm way with further serious ... It also performs well in full.
    Other positions provide sound dug enough "fenderien" (for intermediate positions) ideal in clean (like RED HOT). It's very versatile, it easily passes from Limp Bizkit, the red hot, up to Satriani or the variétoche (yes !!!... ;-)). Good versatility.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Beautiful guitar, very versatile (metal, blue, rock, variety ...)
    nice finish, comfortable and great sound.

    For more information I recommend the site where there is always lag a guitar for you.

    UTILIZATION

    Channel trs end like Ibanez, but not as flat (an ibanez neck a tiny bit rounder wholesale)
    Access in acute trs ais thanks plutt heel slim body profile.
    Super lgre for scratching mahogany! (3 kg just prs), the body is 4.5 cm thick.
    With such a violin, and these microphones, how to have a dirty sound? ;)
    The floyd is good agreement, yet I often dive-bomb and I trs mnage not the poor.

    SOUNDS

    I play progressive mtal, it perfectly matches my style of music: D
    The sound is warm and prcis with the Air Zone, with the crystalline duncan, and air classic retains some Clarete between notes (plutt in fact difficult to explain ..) A super versatile scraper gr to the microphones and split.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had almost a month, I like his ptite boils, its sounds (and I'm not saying its sound: the scratching is so versatile despite its name ..) can be warm, aggressive, clear and crystalline ..
    Qualitprix excellent: it is unfortunately over, but sometimes to find and as the Lag down 50% in OCCAZ .. ;)
    This choice I would do (well I've had 20 days, but for now I am far from me tired!)

    1996 model, 24 frets with the last 7 scallopées (I have done to change the neck following a fracture of the head).
    EMG, 2 doubles, 1 single (not original).
    Vibrato Floyd Rose floating stamped Lag.
    1 volume, 1 tone (yes, that is still good practice for jazzy sounds), a 5-way switch (no split for the microphones).

    UTILIZATION

    We can say that the sleeves are among the Lag enjoyable to play. Subtle blend of Fender (roundness, smoothness) Vigier (key very flat) and Ibanez (jumbo frets).
    I do not return on access to acute, which is perfect (try it a N4, that is even better).
    The comfort game (sitting, standing, lying on one foot, knees ...) is perfect.

    UTILIZATION

    I do not return on access to acute, which is perfect (try it a N4, that is even better).
    The comfort game (sitting, standing, lying on one foot, knees ...) is perfect.
    In sound (in this price range), forget everything else. Balance, roundness, power and clarity are waiting for you.

    Small flat, the cargo are not very beefy. Remember to vary your fingering (which I rarely do), so you do not planning four in 10 years of practice (not always intensive).

    SOUNDS

    A Lag, a tube amp (Marshall JCM combo) and this is gone. Me who loves various styles (blues fusion through the French rock and funk), we can do it all.
    Obviously, not slam it as a stratum and it not bleed like a les paul. on the other hand, it makes everything in between and if the gain is set to 11. There 's good as good bread.
    On the micro serious one begins to Petrucci and the micro acute, one begins to ... that we want. We want the egg to the harmonic Van Halen, just to boost the midrange of the amp. We want the big rhythm to Dimebag, crunch to the Black desire, anything is possible, everything is possible.
    In terms of clean sounds, you did that to hear all the other models in this price range and in this style, I say (contrary to other opinions), is character.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Well, if we count, that makes 10 years that I don 't use it. Apart from these frets that are growing in places where we play the most, there is nothing to say.
    Electronics is not blowing, the pots do not spit, vibrato is recovering well in place and the glaze does not suffer too much of contempt of years of friction (a small polishing him would not hurt either, let zhonnêtes ).

    I have the air of bias, but if you find one used, try, listen and you will buy (No, I'm not a man sandwich). Quality / price ratio tiptop, a handle hyper fun and easy to play, a real versatility with sounds clear quality.

    Me, I have not much to complain, that is why I care.

    - Schaller Floyd Lag stamped, black hardware, 1 volume, 3-position blade switch (since replaced by Schaller Megaswitch 5 positions), Straplok Dunlop series.
    - System H / H, the micro config has changed over time. This guitar I use for testing microphones. On the original DM Fred / PAF Pro, it has endured DM Super Distortion, Air Norton, Norton, Duncan SH6, EMG 81 and so on. It is currently DM Tone Zone and Air Zone.
    - Big bad taste (I was young ...), snakeskin finish up over the head reverse. Deco skin TIAG Dick Rivers, what ... By 91 I was a proud, 95, was already ridiculous ... Then in 2007 ...
    - No frills type bindings, rare woods and precious. In the basic standard.
    Note that when I had received the mark of abalone in the fifth box was too depressed, you could feel the hollow of the DOT under the fingers. Fixed some time later. A small lack of finishing.

    UTILIZATION

    A big advantage of Liptonwood (yeah, what the linden) weight. This guitar is very light and this light weight coupled with a very good balance makes it a guitar that knows how to forget, sitting or standing. A real tool.
    One big advantage of the Lag, the curve of the handle. Super comfortable, requiring no adjustment period, this handle is a reference for me. In the same spirit as the Washburn N4, the Jackson DK1 and DR2. A real success, not too flat, not too large. Again, the handle is there to be forgotten.
    This guitar is really in the mainstream tool for guitar hero of the early 90's.
    Big structural problem, however, rippers for studs of 15mm Floyd are the trapping of micro bridge, not far against 30mm on Jackson, ESP & co.
    With wood denser and harder than the Liptonwood, and pulling strings "normal (9-42, 10-46, etc.), no problem. Where things become worrisome is starting to put the largest pulling. The short distance between the studs and screwing the microphone associated with a soft wood become a structural weakness to be taken into account, the string tension that could potentially happen to crack the body between said knockouts. So wallow hopelessly holding agree. And then he'll have to find a luthier really mastering his art to make up for all that.
    Using "normal, he is a good 7 or 8 out of 10. In teasing tuning underground, the cable tie type EDF, go your way. 2 10.

    SOUNDS

    The Liptonwood a characteristic of his own, he knows to be forgotten. According to taste, we can call it a neutral, to really return the game to color easily with different pickups. Or hopelessly bland. Choice.
    Nevertheless, coupled with some microphones, the sound of that Lag is not bad at all. The pair DM Tone Zone / Air Zone that the team now he is fine. The Tone Zone arrives in all its growling low in saturated, it has plenty of gain in reserve to address the most diverse styles in the countries of meutàààl. In clean, it is really nice. Of the Clean Air Zone are excellent, but with a predisposition for heavy bass, and treble only withdrawal. Coupled to a split, it makes us a nice little guitar, terribly versatile (for a guitar in H / H) and effective in many styles. I'll let you look at the views of these two microphones, we are here for the Lag, and since I change the pickups every other day on this beast ... ;)
    Though this couple TZ / AZ is already in place for quite some time, I enjoy with.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Pffff, what about that guitar ... well in all styles as long to take it easy on the pulling of strings. No identity amazing so far. Versatile, without strong identity. Good but not exceptional.
    The decor is very ugly. Besides, I think all generations have always sin Lag on decorations, too much based on stereotypes of fashion. They are getting old very quickly.
    Snake skin, a kind of photoflame ("impression" on special paper, mounted on the body, hidden on the edges of the table with a sunburst nipple paint and varnish spread with) old moderately well or rather poorly: the Deco comes off around the switch and the holes for the studs of floyd.
    The vibrato is the shock (I stuck there 2 or 3 years). In 16 years, little damage: two arm vibrato taking the game (it turns into 5 minutes), the input jack took of false contacts.
    The varnish was cracked in the 'neck pocket' (at the junction body / neck) and oddly, still one of the studs between Floyd and the volume knob.
    I avoid the ties of barbarian (max recommended by my luthier, drop in the 10-52 C, where I spent the 13-56 for the same tune on a Jackson SLSMG).

    That is, an opinion which is what it is for a guitar that is what it is worth.
    Aaah if in 91, this guitar was hand made in the workshops of the way of Moulis, a hybrid between Rockline I loved and ... Banez a Satriani (Voui, I too was a groupie cunt in my youth). It cost me 7400FF. Funny, inflation ...
    Finally, just like that, it is between us, I am really appalled at Lag. Year after year, the range has been completely revised, modified en route to the point where, between one year and the next, radically changed the woods on the same model. Shapes, fittings and ... owners. Besides, now the country of production. Definitely not the ideal place to build its own identity, right? Hence the often ridiculous prices into an opportunity. But the opportunity, make sure, before buying, what are the specs of your future Lag. ;)

    Edit 01/05/2007: Good content, it was necessary that I put a notice after 16 years of service and found myself with a new damage. Inserts screws went bridges in iron filings, to the point where now they no longer hold the bridges in position for some strings, so adios accuracy. Super happy there ... The inserts are made in the same set of vibrato, the only element not found in Retail ...
    Yep, it's a Schaller, but manufactured to the specifications of the time lag, not really built like a tank after all.
    So replacing the heels with a black OFR (that's all I had in stock in my spare chicken deluxe). Necessarily to get high for a vibrato Lag is not really the form of a CAO, it's pretty ugly. And it's jam given to pigs.

    Come on, notes 'features' and 'overall opinion' amended accordingly ...

    Three microphones: a Seymour Duncan Custom Custom TB11 in the bridge position, an SH1-N 59 'in the neck position and a single vintage microphone in an intermediate position + 5 position selector.

    Everything you need to properly defend himself!

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is a highway! The left hand is always comfortable, fast play enabled without problems with access to acute Hell, on a constant lag.

    The most surprising on the right hand. I have a Rockline Standard 1990, and it is clear that the right hand is far more comfortable on the Metal Master: The strings are closer to the table on this latest model, and the palm of the hand is better positioned vis-à-vis the table and the strings. A fabulous comfort that I compare it to how I feel about my Lag Arkane Absolute is for me an absolute references in comfort.

    She was a master luthier refrettée with Dunlop jumbo frets 6000 (similar to original ones), the result is clear: everything becomes easier! The sound comes out of there with ease, the bends fuse and everything is allowed!

    The body is that of a superstrate, perfectly designed for the comfort of the guitar, while the balance is perfect. It's a fairly light guitar, basswood is a less dense woods such as mahogany.

    A guitar that well reconditioning, gives you a very beautiful feeling and the impression of having always played it!

    SOUNDS

    Possessing several guitars (including 3 Rockline!), They are more or less dedicated to a particular type of music.

    I use it to play because its sounds Hard-Rock/Heavy Metal counseling is particularly. The lime can have a nice shine and a nice presence through the mediums of rain it gets. The sound is decidedly 80's / 90's, and the pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers (TB11, 59 ') magnify the sounds typical 80's guitar. Playing in a group showing of Iron Maiden, the sound provided by this guitar on a good Marshall tube is perfectly suited to the style! A delight. That said, with a good EQ and amp, this guitar can adapt to any style because it is versatile, while still having the character. The output level of the humbuckers is very interesting for liabilities. Less than péchus EMG active (do not push it either!), But more than enough to turn up any amplification stage. In addition, the sustain is quite good for a guitar with a FR and a handle screwed, but this mind-blowing is the feedback! The note can last for hours without starting a spin is a pure joy! Impressive. Simple when the microphone to him is anecdotal. If I wanted to use the simple send, I buy a Stratocaster ...

    Obviously, there is no perfection that takes (a little more bass would have been wise), but it is a superstrate in mind shred 80's / 90's. And it excels in this area!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use for some months now. I have gained in price (though you hold) to 200 euros ridiculous, because the previous owner had done some cool top (curvature of the handle in the cabbage and refrettage required). Having tried my hand these tweaks needed (400 euros anyway), I now has a gem in perfect condition (FR is nickel) with a new fabric for $ 600.

    Knowing the brand by heart, I did not need to compare anything. That said, if I were to rank my lag is this:

    1st Arkane Absolute (unbeatable)
    2nd Rockline Metal Master (it)
    Rockline 3rd Light (1995)
    4th Standard Rockline (1990)

    The first two well ahead of the pack also ...

    What I like his character is highlighted by a very good microphone choices, apart from the single central microphone that I am not using (I'm a fan of the HH configuration and that's it!). And of course the handle and comfort provided for the right hand ... No thing bothers me, may be the aesthetic of period paintings in a pinch.

    With hindsight, it is a great deal! No regrets, and if it was to do again, I would do it without problem!
