Value For Money : Excellent
This guitar is made in Korea I believe.
24 keys, 2 humbuckers humbrukers (the same on all guitars gothics)
There are two models one with and one without vibrato.
3 knobs for volume and a pickup selector.
The body and neck of the guitar are mahogany.


The neck is super nice, the weight is reasonable but there are two problems:

- It's a detail, but the buttons are not only a marked XII at 12th fret is present for the rest you have to look on the upper side of the handle.
Not very practical for playing solos but anyway we can get key 3 times for nothing.

- The holding nothing more boring, you can not play sitting because the V-shape does not allow it and standing head of the guitar tends to s'orrienter down, it breaks the mouth.


The highs are good qualities and sounds are saturated very powerful.
It's a perfect guitar to play any style of metal, more like Epiphone is the same concept that you benefit from Gibson's extreme versatility.
It has one of the best Epiphone guitar sounds can be compared to the Les Paul models.


6 months that I use, most of this guitar is the look (black gothic tower and V-shape) and sound.
The only weak point is the lack of comfort in holding the guitar.
The price is excellent value for about 530 Euros.
I tried all Epiphone models is for me only happens to exceed this guitar is the flyingv Korina who cleans more harmonious sounds.
