The form builder
The neck is absolutely sublime, visually and ergonomically ... if you do not have small hands too, it is V-light but of good thickness, providing ongoing support to the thumb regardless of the position (above or below ..
Ergonomics standard TV ...
The sounds are very satisfactory, both the "strato" with the neck pickup alone (positions 5 and 4) in position 2 as acute strat + medium, such as "TV" in position 3 and position 1, the acute micro is really excellent, both specific and a little hoarse crunch of it in distortion we never spray.
All sounds on TV a little more from those of the Start
Used for 10 years, is a 97, she lived a little, but is absolutely beautiful both visually and musically. It replaced a G & L ASAT Special I had stupidly sold, brilliantly because it is more comfortable (neck) and a more versatile sound while allowing her to have the TV really the bridge pickup.
The three bridges can put off the old but with the help forums and Seymour Duncan TDPRI you can easily find the method for setting the tone that goes well.
Handle extremely stable over time, I had cut a little plaque in front of the screw of the handle, but almost never to return to the truss rod. Concrete that sounds!
The value for money is difficult to judge, one must find one already, what is clear is that the limited series of this type do not lose value a priori (but I keep it)
