Value For Money : Excellent
Explorer Black, Alder body, mahogany neck glued, rosewood fingerboard, 2 humbuckers, 2 volume knobs and one tone knob. Tune o matic. 22 boxes.
Marks absent except for a key XII on the 12th box. (Nice)
Bought 570 euros (but you can latrouver has about 520 euros).

UTILIZATION

The guitar appears very light, it can play a long time standing without twisting your back.
The handle is very comfortable to play, good form explosive limit some access to the 22nd case but with practice you get used to. The sound is quite good for the price, do not ask the aggressiveness of a duncan pickups but are versatile and offer a good pallette of distos and sounds clear.

SOUNDS

Well I'm the metal suits me fine, but as I said before this guitar is versatile enough even if it is rather oriented rock, heavy etc ...
The sound is too aps typed but it is rather round and does not bleed.
I think that after the microphones need to be changed and the result will be a nice little scratch that deposit.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had four months and I am totally satisfied.
I like the shape because it can play with the broken wrist (as it then after, it is better to try it because if you spent 10 years on a strat you may be confused).
The value for money is very good I would do this choice Sanba hesitation.
