Made in Asia (China and Korea I do not know ... I removed the label)
22 frets, two double micros
A three position switch, three knobs (tone and volume)

The finish is excellent, except the species of black tape around the microphone, it's cheap, but hey, it will be crazy: it sounds.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, very thin, probably not for large paws, and finally release it after playing a sound.
Suitable for both for rhythmic arpeggios that.

Access to acute is no problem, you saw fit.

To ergonomics, as most Gibson Epiphone and therefore, it looks to the head, and is quite heavy. Small but good accuracy is quite logical given the physics of the Beast (beautiful?): Sitting with the guitar playing is not great, but hey, it's really not made for that.

For its all relative, but two rounds of knobs I can get what I want.

SOUNDS

The bridge pickup has a really good sound, good slam to play punk, funky stuff or even if your trip is nickel
The middle position is a real treat: Gibson bass and treble.
The microphone is serious ... how to say ... the sound is beautiful, no need to effect or anything, it sounds really.

I find it both very good dual microphones, especially for the price. I could compare the sound of a Gibson SG, it's really kif kif: /

The sounds of course it depends on taste, I love the sounds that I draw.

I do not put as 9, at recess when Gibson got to be better.

OVERALL OPINION

I own this guitar for almost 3 years and I do not regret my choice, but then not at all.

Cons:
_The Weight
_L'ergonomie

Assets:
_The Sound
_The Finish
_The Handle very nice, do one blocked the above is a breeze
_Pareil For the transition to acute
_The Color (red and white candy for me)
_The Look

With experience, I do it again this choice without hesitation.
Even with more money for a guitar with a big sound, there is no better (though a ES335 Gibs ... but I said gold coins, not a fortune;)
