This guitar is the result of collaboration between Tom Launhardt, German luthier who builds guitars for a long time, and EAR which specializes in electro-acoustic amps and electronic music.
For production costs under control, the guitar is made in Korea, according to strict specifications and with materials of the highest order.
Body of alder, maple neck European rosewood fingerboard, Gotoh hardware and mechanical, bone nut and vintage microphones EAR designed specifically for guitar. Overall this is a Stratocaster, but with a flawless finish, this model is a model from Fender Deluxe or more.
The grip is like with her big sister very nice American, the handle pattern C is flatter than the Fender models, at least on mine! Otherwise the ergonomics of a Start.
So that's where the guitar gives its full potential, good violin, good microphones, so ........... good sound! It is the addition of those details that makes a very good guitar compared to a good guitar.
We find vintage sounds, all selector positions have their charm, this guitar to a soul, she sings.
I tried this guitar a little while ago, she had made a very good impression. I have taken the plunge and I'm not disappointed, beautiful sound, a copy violin, a perfect playability. This guitar is not exeptionnelle strictly speaking, it takes the standard Fender, but it was more noble, it is a return to tradition, one who made the big guitars.
An excellent alternative to Fender, a little less expensive than high-end model of the brand.
