I found that there is very little advice and tests of this guitar on the net.
It was a limited edition "crafted in china"
You will also notice the pretty drawing Jimmy Shine itself! Slap it!

The body is basswood, not too heavy but provides good sustain.
The handle 24 boxes is maple and rosewood (I almost put stupidly "rosewood" ... should not always rely on reverso ^ ^ ').
Here there is a humbucker in the bridge position, and a volume knob.
The bridge is fixed and also provides a good sustain.


The guitar is super ergonomic, you can play sitting or standing without problem.
The handle is much better than the guitars I've tried in the same price range.
Easy access to the most acute boxes.
The head is reversed, which facilitates bends, it seems, I'm crazy rhino skin at your fingertips.


Much to be honest, the microphone is bad, it is feeble and sends at most matches ...
But it is clear that for the price, it is preventable.
Here the sound is not resolved on the guitar, it is better to guitar volume back and adjust the amp or pedal.
The guitar is doing really quite well in a punk-rock record.
you can even use it for metal.


Ultimately this guitar not discouraging me and allowed me to grow. This is all we ask for a guitar "novice" is not it?
Maybe we can improve the sound by replacing the microphone with another (secondhand it comes out for very cheap).

In retrospect, for the price, this is a very good option. It is better to start on a Jimmy shine on a guitar that has a bad vibrato and a handle rappeux.
