The handle is in good overall. Fast, but acute cases are not easy to access because it is screwed.


I often play in clean with a Fender Mustang II, the sound is provided by the strings (9/42). We must move to a higher pulling. 10/46 for example.


It's been almost a year since I played with this guitar is my first electric. When I put it in the hands of my teacher, I noted that the tone knobs did not work and she roared. I returned to the store where I bought it. The seller-opens between the plate and make a phone blower in the knobs. And then a cloud of dust and filings escapes. Later, when changing strings, I open the pickguard. And then, horror vision. The welds were made like a marmoset. The insulation of the son was, in places, burnt at least 1cm. In addition, they were oxidized. As I am good handyman and electrician as I was editor among other things, I redid all the wiring for a more efficient. Changed the knobs for better (to 24mm), the selector for a Super-switch, pickguard for another 3-ply black-pearl, mechanical for oil bath (because they are struggling to keep the agreement) with addition of 2-string guide because after passing through the hands of a luthier to adjust the mechanical action were higher than the saddle. I screened all the copper sticker. The bridges sheet origin is not supporting the upper pulling starting to slouch, I caused myself to change for other thicker graphite. And as this was not enough, I had to put a contact washer to prevent the jack from unscrewing.

Total: + or - € 200 to pay for parts in addition to the purchase.

Now she walks the "Fire of God". She is unrecognizable and can compete with other skyscrapers brand higher price.

I hope I'm wrong fell as if all production is of the same quality it promises!
