L'aztec's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Fender Gibsonnienne"
I wanted to offer me a Gibson SG Special but by trying it is the drama handle suits me absolutely not. So I am back on a Fender with sleeves my leave good memories. Trying is even better than a standard Tele for my taste, the handle seems a little thinner and flatter is the key which is perfect for my small hands. action set has a hurry by the seller before my eyes is very correct. A real highway. Ergonomics level access to the treble is much better than a standard Tele but is more difficult than on a SG (bend on the G string at fret 19 requires a little practice). it's a featherweight for Tele after 3 hours of concert I have quite a shoulder. I play with a long strap and I is not no problem to handle plunging. sitting for the game can be a chamfer to the forearm would have been a plus. Finally on the use it is very simple only 2 tone knob (push / pull) and volume three position selector.
I play mostly rock 70-80 years it is top for that!
Vacuum already sounds serious. It vibrates a lot and it asks to be connected.
All-tube amp while at noon and a fat overdrive, micro acute and knobs are scraped thoroughly and there it is we begin to Billy Gibbons. the pickups are fantastic.
with my all-tube amp at home (Bugera 5W) it sounds right away without struggling with the settings. On stage I play with a line6 pod hd connect directly to the mixer and it sounds pretty (unlike with my old guitars). it's very easy to get the type ZZ TOP with a big overdrive or AC / DC guy with a marshall who crunch. Once the micro splitter adpanne well for the police, for example, but it will never be the top to funk versatility has limits. I like simplicity and I'm delighted not need to play with the knob it sounds like I love everything thoroughly.
I use this guitar for 3 me and I love it. It there's any problem finishing the binding on my own body drooling a bit at the attachment of the strap and a little problem I have 2 frets with defects, tiny entaillse (when you bend has the 3rd or 12th cargo rope hangs a little) has the force to make bend around the cargo 12 is back to normal but by regarding the freight 3 we will have to see a luthier. Despite this violin looks superb quality. the seller has set me in a hurry for me 15min changed the strings to a 10-52, a big blow for the handle key etc ... I use three hours later for a concert and there is nothing to move during a concert or even later. The tuning holds very well.
The guitar is superb throughout with this red polish that leaves appear below table
The value for money is ok not great for my taste, 700 euros the tip anyway there are better finished guitars that certainly sounds can be worse. I will bring it to a luthier to make me a very fine tuning I'm sure we can further improve the game.
In short I recommend this guitar to everyone who wants to play ZZ TOP without Gibson

comment-tu-dis?'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Note that the color photo is very misleading, in reality it is bcp + dark (almost black on stage). Its color varies rouge-bourgogne/noire lot depending on the light.
1st observation: The base is excellent violin, varnish, finish, sound vacuum, etc. ...
3 Details are in my opinion not up to this superb violin:
- The stock pickups (question of taste)
- The mechanical
- The bridges
Another detail: the factory setting was disastrous (handle, action ...) direct passage from the maker to whom she has also made a big impression. A good start ...
Shape, access to the tweeter is the same as a traditional TV, the gaming experience very close.
The apprehension of the handle is more easily and comfortable, less thick. On this model, you can also go lower in action.
1st observation: given enough hybrid characteristics (mahogany set neck ...), those who expect a priori to form Tele sounding like a Les Paul are completely wrong.
Certainly, the attack will be a little less bright with more roundness and sustain. But the overall tone remains very, very Fender Tele, the relationship is still present.
Those who love the classic Tele but it sometimes criticized both too "harsh" in some situations, may therefore pay close attention to the FMT.
I own the first model released in 2005, equipped at the time in micro Fender (atomic HB). So I do not know the record of Duncan mounted today. The stock pickups were too smooth, neutral and modern for me. I have them replaced immediately by Humbuckers Gretsh / DeArmond. Since FMT expresses a great potential in a record vintage, rock and blues. With bcp de corps and a strong personality.
I also replaced the jumpers with U.S. standards and the mechanisms by Schaller Auto-lock to rotate serenely in concert.
On leaving, I gained around 800 €, already an excellent deal. At the current rate today, there is even a case +. If you should level sound, go for it. Its current low price may mean the stoppage prod shortly ...
Put it in the hands of any qualified luthier, and the verdict does not lie: a few details (which I listed), in terms of quality pure instrumental, this guitar is usually 3x the tariff, minima.

showie's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super guitar, fooled!"
. shaped mahogany body / maple table Tabby
. Mahogany set neck / rosewood fingerboard 22 frets
. 2 humbucking pickups Seymour Duncan ® Pearly Gates SHPGP 1B-Plus Humbucking Pickup (bridge) + SH-1N RP '59 Reverse Polarity Humbucking Pickup (neck)
. fixed bridge string through-
. mechanical oil bath
. black hardware
. Amber color
I'm surprised because even though it does a big month I use it has a big sound.
The handle is very nice, fingers glide easily: a real highway. freight rates do not exceed: good quality finish.
Good grip: no visible defects violin and cutting aid stomach when playing.
Guitar lightweight and comfortable on the shoulder, unlike TV "Classic".
Nice finish the table in maple, it is beautiful Amber (although I hesitated to take this color.) It is a good compromise between tradition and modernity.
Access to acute is not super easy but you get used easily
While there, I go back to her. I'm amazed by the sound coming out of this TV!
As described by my predecessors, it is typed blues and rock.
With Marshall (same transistor) we leave a clear sound very nice, not crystalline.
The Seymour Duncan split-offer a range of sounds broad enough to find happiness.
To describe the particular sound, I would say it sounds like a compromise between a Fender and Gibson. You have to love! but I love it.
his sound is his strong point!
Likewise with a popping sound, it finds its expression domain.
I see myself playing less funky riffs with this guitar a good rock.
I am not 10 because I do not have enough experience with respect to this guitar. Yet she is so nice to play it comes easily to my hands up in the evening. How to tell? she is very nice.
its price (550 €) and value for money are more than good. I'm waiting to see how it will age over time, including the handle.
The distinctive sound and shape of TV changed are its strong points 2.
The only weakness I see is access to treble a bit difficult.
You imagine that I do not regret that choice at all.

foreign devil on the silk road's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
set neck gibson way, a pure delight ...
very comfortable to play guitar, very light with its already a very full load, it makes everything feel like plugging Desuite
Ideal for rock, blues, gibson sound is very distinctive, which eventually hinder me in the long run (it's not a telecaster les paul!) as a result I replaced the original saymour duncan by Rio Grande Big Bottom Set (+ crunchbox punchbox) for a more typed texas potato and monstrous! Interestingly, I also unplugged tone (I thought the volume pot) original ineffective!) I am now completely satisfied with the sound!
superguitare I love it especially with the Rio Grande, a few reservations about the quality of electronic components, but it's easily changed! at this price of true happiness

zangdar555's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I changed the bridge by a mechanical Graphtech and put autolock Fender, details that amplify the potential of a skyscraper ... And it's much nicer ^ ^
Handle very nice, soft touch, not an end but not the Ibanez (ERK).
Thinner than a standard TV it seems.
Very good ergonomics, cutting the stomach.
The microphones orgine are very good but I'm not too seymour, so I put Dimarzio and there I can play everything.
Way in jazz gibson neck pickup (I kept the '59), metal with a very modern bridge in Dropsonic (Lamb of God, Gojira, etc. ...), old school (with the split, its excellence by RATM ), its crystal clear with the spit bridge also.
Fits all styles with proper mics.
Its mahogany body can deal with all the styles, the softer the more extreme.
I play on Engl Fireball + 2x12 XL NOS.
I love all the sounds. Thank goodness!
I use it for several months.
I bought it without even trying, I knew it would be good. For the 900th (mods included) was a beast race, rare, and very pretty (this booktmatch!). It sounds more aggressive than a skyscraper with EMG, without its weak points ...
9 with the mods and microphones, but a big 8.
A great discovery.

fromagedechevre's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- On my own, micro Humbucker Di Marzio, splitable ... they are cream, the most beautiful effect
- Horse tlcaster standard type, 6 bridges
- Volume and tone (which also splits the mic)
- Set neck like a Les Paul!
Manufacturing that has nothing to envy to Mexican or even a certain standard United States
- Manche super nice, very late, very flat. When I resumed my old Washburn N2, the handle end, however, seems to me Nerma.
- Acute easy access ... tlcaster requires ...
- Weight very lightweight (mahogany) body of very fine ... never seen personally
- A super versatile twang typic (or nearly) of tl micro acute split big fat double-well ... many thanks to sustain handle al.
Rock, punk rock, reggea ... anything goes
DSL-amp marshall 40w all-tube pedals + Boss OD2 (MIJ of 88!). Nothing else ...
-Ca is a slap in the acute, well the big fat serious (humbucker) / Setting the Tone makes a jazzy sound ... a good invoice you to see (well, hear)
-I like this cot versatile ... not need 12 guitars ... just the one!
- 1 year of use ... I'm in love with my guitar
- The -? I will say that two knobs and two volume knobs of Tone t have a must ... but I abuse. Otherwise, the head looks lgrement down lorsquon stands ... but nothing serious.
- Yes, some including the Fender Tele Us Highway 1 in which j'hsitais
- EXCELLENT report (pay to OCCAZ 350euros on eb), have to be crazy to buy something else
- Mine is golden (Goldtop)! hhh!! After much searching on the internet, I have never seen this model! Yet this is an original colors ... sold, it seems, exclusively on the Asian market ...
-Of course ... imagine the combination with humbucker Fender tl + has marshall lamps ... I have a palette of sound crazy, look no!

senegalais00's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Mahogany body, set neck, mahogany table with tiger maple cream binding
Rosewood fingerboard, abalone in reference, 22 medium jumbo frets
Chrome hardware, a mechanical clutch, fixed rope bridge crossing
Bridge pickup: Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Plus
Neck pickup: Seymour Duncan SH1 '59 (reverse polarity)
(Both pickups are single coil and split)
. A flawless round, with disconcerting ease, access to far more acute than on an easy US TV (I had 3), the port is standing too much "with a good strap you forget, you can sit and play for hours without any fatigue.Le volume knob immediately falls under the fingers, the split application of habit not to interrupt a sentence, but after the coup caught, one forgets.
But the icing on the cake comes from the ITS, magical, single coil that snaps like a gun on a "mesa F50" and the sharp cry you make the guys who are at the forefront. In doubles, I agree with previous comments, we are working on double GIBSON simplement.En I use a lot while the two microphones with wha + distortion, we obtain a range of sounds that fill me, even without the contribution of a rack.
Ok, this guitar for just over a year now, I gave him time to "work", the result is excellent. I found this TV with a buddy who runs a music store and who had the hat makers recevoir.Franchement Korean, Americans should monitor their guitars, because I saw you crying at the finish . It is true that the body is so beautiful that it would be a shame to scratch with a pick, which shield indispensable.Le translucent quality / price ratio, I thought there was an error when I set, as long as it lasts ..... A buy eyes closed.

Pilgrim1974's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

I also have this guitar for a year now, the model with two Seymour Duncan and frankly I have no complaints! The pickups are the height of their reputation and the Blues / Rock is IDEAL!
Only a brief comment from my fellow users, I have not the "smoking" the acastillage tends fast enough from the friction zone, ie the o the bridge there is the hand and on the volume knobs and tone ... gave the character a little nice "usquot, which makes it even more crunchy!
Another thing, do not hesitate to see several different models because I also noticed that the table was more or less successful depending on the guitar, I am lucky to have fallen on a decoupage uniform and regular, this is not the case of two or three others I've seen> attention to this detail!
Come on guys no snob, forget the Americans try and run this great guitar, you will not deu your trip !!!!! (Especially for the price / equipment)> Note: a BIG 9 (not supplied with carry case to store it .. and yet it's not the guitar that is at issue but Fender )

verdelet1's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
the jack is perfect for me with regard to any further notice
The neck is super thin and fast everything I need donations perssonlement
if the acute problem of access to small but significant
The one enters the heart of the matter
This is a monster tv
I ale mount EMG 81/89 but it's super versatile home with split
Garve ultra clear
Brief what I want to make perfect
I can help in 2 weeks and 3 days with emg
the thing I love about this skyscraper is the versatility
Deplus I have a lot of element of comparison (gibson les paul traditional
, Gibson les paul jr and gibson les paul (guitar of the week) goldtop (pan Florentine and Bigsby) and it's frankly not a blushing

checkzeflo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
2 Seymour Duncan humbuckers (SHPGP-1B Pearly Gate) and SH1-1NRP59.
3 positions but microphones and split.
1 volume knob and one Tone.
Just then the classic.
The set is very well RALIS no major problem. the handle is trs al enjoyable for the treble. The sustain is also widely amlior thanks a. I would add that the body is mahogany Asian trslger trs.
The handle is trs good with the shade due to the jumbo frets Drout at beginners and impractical for the slides.
Otherwise good use and trs. A small problem at the same balance when the guitar leaning a little cot head. edit: the SETTING THE strap a little plastic bottom allows rgler this concern.
The rglages work perfectly. The entire course of the Tone knob is usable which is interesting for trs "jazz" or "Blues".
This is the big highlight of the BTE.
The SD sends the wholesale saturation and the possibility to split the pickups is a plain apprciable + super. Versatility for the big scratches.
Out the treble, the harmonics as well. It enlve fingers of the handle has cut the sustain (even in saturated fat), it's really prcis net and without burrs.
I test with my bandit 112, MGFX100, an all-tube Fender (unfortunately not me ...) and a Spider III 75 it sounds with the fire of God. The SD pickups are really good.
I stress once again the versatility of the guitar and its exceptional sound reproduction. Clear sounds slammin or round depending on the tonal and micro utiliss. As against this sounds a bit "vintage", for a normal tv you will tell me.
My uses are many and varied but I'll try dcrire just that.
Double coil, I use mainly in clean neck pickup for a sound trs "vintage", round and with a nasal sympatoche cot, to Jazz. If you want bass and treble round slamming fender sauce, a split shot and it switches with two microphones (center position) and l. .. Happiness! One of my clean sounds prfr perfectly balanced and really fun. The right hand can range attacks to play a bass line intersects coup d'exploded on the upper strings, really excellent.
The micro acute non split (in my usage) is confined to heavy saturation and aggressive. In this register it is doing particularly thanks the precision he displayed formidable and sustain-General for the guitar. but it lacks a bit of potato for rhythmic strings and clumps trash
If we want to approach sounds more crunchy and less saturated "fit in" can be recreational splitter and enter the world of micro saturated simple. the grain is typical.
APRS mounting a Di Marzio Tone Zone prs of the bridge, the lack P'ti potato mtal to make with this guitar is forgotten! A "customization" healthy in every way that greatly amliore super dj proper performance of the guitar. Note that the microphone is also effective trs sounds clear even if many do not.
I like the versatility, the look, split pickups, and handle the lgeret
I put a little less for the jumbo frets. It really points a Student (and try) before purchasing the guitar.
The report price is trs good quality.
