UTILIZATION

the neck is thin enough (a bit more than an explosion after re '76)
ergonomics is comfortable (do not sting the nose) but a fairly substantial weight probably due to the mahogany
access to acute is achievable without too much contortions but it all depends on what the height was on "scraper"
for a "good sound", it reveals its full potential saturation

SOUNDS

it suited the style of music I play. granted drop "D", it develops good bass sounds and biting treble.
splitables allow the microphones to "calm" the beast if necessary (blues / jazz / use ...) but his chosen field is clearly the Rock (if not metal). mastodon, you know?
I use it with a diezel VH4 amp and cabinet OUR mounted Celestion V30.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a short week (1-2h / d) and repeat (4h/samaine). I will probably bring some details later in my opinion if necessary.
I already have a gift several exploration LTD EX 50, a Gibson '76 re issue and ESP mx 250.
The feature I like is that the position selector is located at the potares volume / tone, and the "push / pull" spliter for mics ... and the gold finishing burst, its inlay and binding that give it a retro look.
the price / quality ratio is seen to exellent finishing and sound
