-> Guitar factory in France More precisely PRS Grigny (Essonne);
-> Scale 650 mm, with 24 jumbo frets kinds not to mention the zero fret (I will return later);
-> The Excalibur Ultra Blues a dual configuration (bridge)-simple-simple (handle);
-> The bridge is near a Wilkinson and based on ball bearings which Confre him a longer life qu'apprciable;
-> It has a potentiomtre volume and a single Tone microphones that can be configured thanks a 5-way switch;
-> Handle "D" which is reminiscent of the ESP Horizon.
-> The handle Submitted good ergonomics, the varnish is thin and trs "fast", which is suitable for soloists from all sides. This is a pice of Saddle franais, which technically does not ncessite rglages since there does adding a carbon rod, as a trussroad. It is quite large, which does not tire the left hand (or right for hendrixiens).
-> Access in dernires frets trs is altogether good, although the chamfers at the body of the guitar does have more than bnfiques. But the ergonomics of the guitar is really enjoyable trs, from a Les Paul that serves dead horse here on your little shoulders.
-> The Dimarzio pickups offer a level of output more than adequate, but I still wonder about the appellation "Ultra Blues" ... Okay virtual microphones are vintage but the sound typical of Fender pickups Kinman, or makes a clear diffrence.
-> Still, the exca. trs adapts well to the styles and techniques, and the sound is really high.
-> I play mostly Rock or Hard of, and it is aptly suited for this style of play Trained solo, I think this guitar is for a: raids are round comfort, so that the solos are no longer a problem. The species used for the body (alder both parties, table Saddle ond provide excellent holding note, a perfect balance-medium-severe acute rendering your game Fidler
-> Waiting for an all-tube, I play on a Line6, which is not the ultimate, but even with this type of amplification hardware, it's a pleasure to play with rel the Excalibur. I mainly use a Dunlop CryBaby wha it's all good and my zbres.
-> I play it for a little over two years on scne in RPET 'home. In short it is my best guitar.
-> The fact that we can assign style prdilection (Blues you say ?...) rvle is on balance quite nice since you can print your label with no problem (Jazz passes without problem, but it's not a Gretsch or a Gibson ES eh). I was fortunate to come across a MODEL that Submitted an original table: The Saddle was not this aspect "flammquot, de rigueur, but devious reasons (the wave of Hokusai if you know) that ressorent particulirement well with a sapphire blue finish. For cons, the zero fret, if it acts as a second nut, worn over the hours of play, so the replacement of the pi this hurts (about 30 euros). A little of this dcevant ct l.
-> For about 2300 euros, the quality of Vigier is not, I think usurped. The "Made in France" is not to be something.
-> No worries, I make the choice. I test the PRS and musicman, and my choice was the exca. Nanmoins I feel that prices go up against always ...
Characteristics as already written,
mine shaft and being with maple fingerboard.
Pickups two doubles and a single EMG, so the ultra Blues
Vigier tremolo on bearings.
Everyone knows that this is a French guitar.
2 as I put that note, because this configuration with a guitar in table maple, maple neck, EMG pickups .... for me it does not really.
The handle is very nice, it is particularly good profile is one of the most enjoyable rounds that is .... but too right!, in any case, how to bend easily on this guitar, I can not!
Ergonomics is good, access to treble is excellent, personally, I'm fine.
We get the right sound?
To shred of, yes, shredder machine, other than that .. I see why they put the word in the name of blues guitar, but do not worry, I had not bought it. But hey ..
I bought it because I had taken in hand very easily, super comfort and point of view of sound, I put distortion and it was not bad.
After the excitement of the purchase, the surgical precision of the instrument of these mics and its maple neck, cold unbelievable ......
Whatever the amp, do not think getting a lot of sounds with this guitar sound space which could not be more limited.
I plugged it in all my amps, of course, and the result is the same.
No sound character, it seems to play a guitar made of marble. This is very bad.
I have for nearly three years.
I know well on many models, I was attracted to this guitar for its manufacturing quality, the comfort of his sleeve, however, limited for some years, the quality of the tremolo, etc. ...
What I like least and that is really annoying, it is the sounds. No sound identity, one is a bit lacking with such a guitar. it goes very well for certain types of exercise, sweeping, etc. .. shred ...
The quality is just average price is still expensive.
The build quality is there, but I prefer my other guitars by far.
I will not repeat that choice.
The overall opinion is wrong. it's still a disappointment. This guitar in a graceful plumage gives nothing. Musically, it offers a very limited universe, electronics EMG is not suitable for this violin, at least for me. I also noted a concern at the handle, too straight which leads to difficulties to bend, it's incredible to meet such concerns on a guitar of this price.
I put bad despite the quality and reliability of manufacture, but it deserves no more than that because a strictly musical point of view, for me, this guitar is a crash and a big crash.
If this was the build quality of a musical standpoint, it's bad.
