Value For Money : Excellent
Tl copy made in china, translucent gray-beige finish.
aa tl has everything a Premire view there was no big rglages to do, just adjustments of the handle, the height of cordres ...

I played with for 6 months on good transparent tube amps.

a step back and craft it is a beautiful copy of a sound point of view. a soooooonne!

UTILIZATION

The handle is gross sanding so it glides well, no fret n'accroche. it's pretty late and I find it very enjoyable.
BUT: a band ended up dcoller partly from its slot so beautiful frisette appeared, the handle is very lgrement spin so it is not possible to have a string height perfectly homogeneous only the width of the handle, the wood of the handle is not superior quality (LGERS points prmices nodes, trs LIGHT twist ...).
of course it has relative to the price of the instrument, and there is nothing dramatic, it's still fully playable.

fittings is limited: easel who raps a little hand, and a plaque of mcaniques bomb which "floats" when changing the strings.

the body is composed of 4 or 5 blades assembled (in the original ash as after thomann)

SOUNDS

I play blues and rock mostly on tube amp (www.projetG5.com)

bridge pickup is quite honorable correct sensitivity, a lot of dynamic and well foil (a similar property has a tl. it goes very well in crunch and saturated lgre but too prsence plain, so sounds a bit gling-gling)

+ easel in the neck position is pretty well balanced sound, it is still clear enough but much less showy, the bass is a correct level (for tl.'s my posistion prf re as it is versatile enough for the rhythmic (reggae, folk, blues), the riffs (rock), in clean, crunch and saturated!

the neck pickup is totally blocked there preque bass, midrange and not much above, we must take on the treble knob to compensate but it's not very crdible, the dynamics is affected . Chrome hood is a mass problem, and I guess that's what pissed off that cover the highs and definition. clean sound, it goes so, and crunch as well. on the other hand you lose all of Intrets amp lamp shades are gums, the dynamic is crass, the sound is bad Dfine ...

NEWS: I finally removed this *! # Hood chrome neck pickup. it's just because you have galre disassemble the handle to remove the plate and screws accder to the microphone.

In any case the change is radical: the neck pickup has its Dfine and is gentle enough, with serious but not Submitted rounds, just mdiums creuss and treble ends. is that of happiness.
It goes very well with the neck pickup in the center position of slecteur. the sound gradually evolves when moving from one position to another slecteur. it's perfect. As a note for her from 3 to 9;)

OVERALL OPINION

In general I am satisfied with this scratch trs.

It some default but nothing catastrophic from the neck pickup in state of origin. (I'm pretty sure that was just the cover that must be chrome steel (magntisable) instead of being nickel or stainless steel. Never mind the look of these days I will sacrifice it.)
EDIT-this is done and that changes everything! -

For a floor price was a real guitar and not a piece of wood with strings on it poses. it is quite enjoyable to play.
the sound is round and clear in the neck position.
in the bridge position is well-typed tl.

I put 8 in the end because it has excellent sound in spite of its default: remove a micro cache, the hoop and handle stray trslgrement spin does not seem to evolve.
