There is everything needed to quantitatively make a copy of TC deluxe.
No major OEM brand now ... going to see more what happens:
The finish is not without its faults "visual":
-A little glue visible between the nut under
-The extra button at the end of handle poorly contoured
A condo-welded onto the wrong tone mic acute.
The handle is unvarnished very nice, well rounded, rather thick, in the tradition of Fender.
Access to acute conforms to the type of emulated guitar, ie very good for me.
First surprise: the sound "acoustic" is excellent, very balanced, deep and brilliant.
Second surprise: the "playability" is excellent.
Third surprise: no need to retune every bend.
The guitar arrived perfectly set, the string action is "mid-high" (the shredder will not like).
Once connected, the sound is there, a good rock sound.
The pickups have a good sound very round, very low access medium, with an output level quite respectable. on the other hand they lack teeth to access the metal or modern distortion.
The sound is Lespaulien if I say (a family likeness, a feeling), the attack very round with very good sustain.
And over the background noise is almost nonexistent even pushing the gain.
In short this guitar is cut for the blues / rock / hard rock, with a certain quality level below medium.
I use it for 48 hours, so I can not judge the reliability of its evolution over time.
In 15 years of guitar I have little compared to a lot of skyscrapers and high-low range (Stagg, Bc Rich, Jackson, Gibson, Fender, Washburn ..... etc).
It's a good guitar "rock" at very good value for money if you go on the finishing details.
When to make the election again, we hear about it if the violin takes time.
