guitar made and / or assembled in China, basswood body, "table" maple dappled, vibrato "SPECIAL" Licensed Floyd Rose, neck and maple fingerboard, 24 jumbo frets, pickups HSS config badged "ESP", volume 1, 1 tone, 5-way switch, mechanical oil boin, classical and experienced.
handle nice, relatively flat, with easy access to sharp cutting lower body dug, guitar and light enough to use stable standing ergonomics "standard" for a superstrate, what!!
requires some minor adjustments to be perfectly playable, but overall it is very correct. just to clarify that the strings are mounted original bad enough in sound and touch, you feel much better with another brand (D'ADDARIO for me).
the floyd is smooth and stable in use, easily manipulated knobs and selector, RAS!!
I used to play mainly metal in standard tuning, a little rock like U2, THE CURE (thank you handle the microphones and simple middle !!!!). I chose this model specifically for micro and simple neck milddle to this versatility. Please note that it exists in config palisandre HH with a touch, the model MH100QM STB.
the level of output is therefore the micro bridge, apparently a micro ceramic.
the sound is very strong mid / high, do not hesitate to play with the volume to avoid cruncher if attacked too supported as it saturates quickly. good bass. it lacks precision for my taste.
He is doing really is not bad to distortion due to its marked mediums, many harmonics and punch. the palm mutes out well, but lack of precision on large distos. I changed to a Seymour Duncan TB6, and there the sound was greatly improved distortion, more biting and accurate, a treat!! its clear, we find the same characteristic as the original microphone, it saturates easily according to the attack.
the single coils do their job no more, no real character marked on them. their power is average, sounds very nice on the neck pickup for solos in crunch. it has some nice sounds out of phase position INTERMEDIATE neck / middle even if it is relatively far from a real sound "Start" position 4 combines the micro and the middle bridge, but the bridge is meant more as more powerful ... finally a position not very interesting.
a micro upgrade is welcome, because that's where the rub on this little guitar ....
I use it for 2 years, next to a Charvel CH4 given in SI. I play for 18 years as an amateur.
I appreciate the good overall quality of violin making, finishing and fittings of all reliable.
this guitar mics Fishing only by its means, even if the sounds are OK, but not specific enough and without significant character for my taste ...
However, I do it again this choice for the serious violin, the pickups are a matter of choice and taste, and rare are the guitars at this price that offers the same overall quality.
