Super pleasant neck with a virtually flat radius, which is typical for Flying and Explorer models, etc. Ultra easy upper frets access (normal for a Flying). The guitar is light and well-balanced. The original pickups have a very good output level, they immediately give you the typical big hard rock sound of the 70's we like... Then you can start using the knobs to do as you please.
This guitar is made for hard rock and heavy metal. It's not really the music style I usually play but I've been taken aback by the quality of this guitar. I own three Gibson Les Pauls, three Telecasters (among them one 68), one Strat reissue 57, several Gretsch models and lots of vintage guitars (Danelectro, Kay, Silvertone, Magnatone, etc.). Good and sometimes expensive instruments... But I am impressed by the quality and ease of use of this guitar. But you must play it with a fat distortion (forget about the clean sound). I play Marshall amps and the sound range is incredible between the sharp bridge pickup and the fat and muddy neck pickup. The guitar sounds great for solos (good sound definition, better than for rhythm parts where it sometimes tends to sound inaccurate). The pickups remind me the DiMarzio we used to use to enhance the sound of Eagle or Hondo Japanese copies.
I bought it secondhand on ebay one year ago. My main motivation was to have a typical, inexpensive and nice-looking hard rock guitar. I didn't try it out before buying it (nor any other guitar in this category). Exceptional value for money. It's quite simple: it's on the same level as my Les Paul guitars when it comes to the pleasure of playing it.

Made in Korea or China, ds doubt ..
Saddle sleeve 22 frets, basswood body
2 humbuckers, 3 position selector, two volume pots and 1 Tone knob.
The strings through the body at the easel, super nice.
View that it is a flying V Access in acute is super easy, it's size for a. A contrary what one might think, the handle is super enjoyable, although a MODEL is an Asian. Parcontre a l o is felt that the level of finishes. As it is dballe it out of the mouth, the two colors black and white, it's cool .. but when you look at the PRS is that we realize that this is not the quality US: pots that take half the paint and the glue that drool some places. There is reason to doubt the quality of the product.
Parcontre weight level is the Panard, c a super light scratches and really balance, if you play the knees is perfect lol
It has become the only INTERESTED. I mainly play the good old "heavy old school" as I call a. T enjoyable and I surprised by the sound of the original pickups, the neck pickup is round and smooth and the bridge pickup has enough to keep on EHJV riffs in all of Palm muting.Le Marshall for now ...
Well I will not deny that I quickly swap the pickups for a home SH2N Zebra and Zebra SH4 to get the sound I need, and no problem following the wood perfectly.
Small dtail take the time to settle your sleeve if you want to get good harmonics.
For résumé if you're fans of Flying V and you do not have a big budget, do as I buy the scratch. She has the mouth (small flat finish for even when) I have new russi for 329 euros, the price change the pickups and get a unique instrument that is in sound closer to the US MODEL and I'm sure. A ct a I play an Ibanez Steve Vai Jem White 7 and I can tell you that up in Duncan, little Dean was not ashamed of it ct (I have to go a crazy but good .. sell curralum vitanae, a meaningless but I think arsume well ... lol
A tool that I recommend for the budget: report qualitprix excellent.
I do it again this choice without hsiter.

I will talk about Dean Schenker custom model, which has much better finish.
It is manufactured in Korea.
The pickups are custom zebra Schenker United States.
• Michael Schenker Classic Black and White Finish
• Schenker custom wound pickups "Made United States"
• Dean Series II Classic "V" Headstock
• Mahogany Body and Neck
• Binding on Body and Neck
• Set Neck Construction
• Rosewood Fingerboard
• Zebra Pickups
• Case Included
There are two volumes for each pickup and a tone selector with three positions.
The handle has marks with dots pearl, 22 boxes, very nice.
The handle is very nice and the fact that it is also painted black and white gives it a nice touch in addition to the look.
Access to the treble is like flying on the exceptional.
The form and style are very good to stand out of wood or other traditional colors and we never tire of it easily.
The sound to hard rock, however, sounds can be much more versatile if we want to make adjustments in this direction.
What I like most is playing with UFO standards.
For the rest I do not decide, you can play many other things but it is by definition still rock.
I use it for a year and frankly what I like most is its look.
For sound, it has nothing to be ashamed to face great brand.
For value for money, normally less expensive in the United States and Europe, it is very good, although purists will prefer the American model.
It is a choice that made me want to go further with this brand, the models are gorgeous limited or flame.
Without hesitation one of the most original guitars on the market.
