Mahogany body, carved chambers of resonance.
Micros simple DeArmond.
Volume and tone knobs for each pickup, three-position selector in the upper body.
Maple neck with 22 frets, rosewood fingerboard.
The handle is comfortable, a bit round in the clubs without giving Gibson.
The guitar is well balanced. Access to treble is done without too much trouble. That said, I do not play the blues or Satriani in Clapton, then access the treble beyond the 15th case ...
When empty, the guitar sounds great already. The violin is really high quality (much higher number of brand new TV I occasionally dabbles in stores zik).
There is a beautiful resonance and brilliance predominance.
Once connected, the comparison with the Telecaster stops. DeArmond gives the sound a cross between Fender / Gretsch and Gibson. Less fat than a Gibson P90. More heat than TV. And rock'n'roll side of Gretsch.
The sharp edge without being garish, the intermediate position gives pop sounds, the microphone in serious plays records jazzmen.
I for nearly two years now. I almost got rid of them, but the high quality violin has strongly advised me to keep it. Well I took.
As I work in a noisy trend rock record, I changed DeArmond - who lacked aggressiveness, I thought - for mini-humbuckers Gibson Firebird. Since then, she roars ... and it is wild.

Was a tl with a semi-full, since cavitsy t have hollow. The pickups are DeArmond and the bridge and a new Fender, a knight-Stopbar tailpiece. 2 tone, 2 volume, 1 three selector positions, much like what a gibson! Everything is the quality of violin irrprochable.
The handle is typical of a tl so I'm not dpayser, also having a tl american standart. It is a bit heavy, that from the fact that it is mahogany (well I think ...). Access in acute is cequ'il is, as it is a tl
The sound is rich and full, beautifully Dfine whether in the bass or treble, but it is the mdiums that devastate there. the sound of a neck pickup is smooth and incredibly soft for a while sharp slap what it takes to casseroles. Whether EJN clear sound or distortion nrrrme, it will be most comfortable.
I brought the US 1 year ago, and frankly, c'etaot the right choice. I stumbled upon it while j'tais party to buy an Epiphone Casino ... A unique guitar, really.
