Manufacturing: Japan.
24 frets, 2 Duncan Design humberckers Detonators (Seymour Duncan Invader copy, thank you Lonewolf: p).
Chvalet licensed Floyd Rose.
A single volume knob selector 3 positions + 1.


The handle is trs enjoyable, a real DLIC, apart from the style (we like it or not) is the highlight of the guitar I think.
Access in acute is quite possible, even if the horn can interfere a bit.
The rgonomie is surprisingly, it is expected a guitar heavy and uncomfortable, it's the opposite.
In terms of sound, is the Duncan Design, no original Seymour, it feels right but it's still trs. It's not upscale, it's not the low end.


I play a lot of metal but not only, and the guitar is perfect, it sends saturated in violence, in his clear surprise, she dfend trs well. It will not play jazz with either eh, but it's not as typical as some cry, far l.
I personally branch directly into the PC sound card with VST derrire in an x-Vamp, a Peavy Bandit 112 (and a head Line 6 Spider Boss GT6 + with a friend). In all these settings, it works wonders, I'd really see what happens in real lamps.


I use it daily for a month, and I am satisfied with TRS. In dpart I flash it looks (well, the equivalent MODEL There's 10 years there, I think a PS6). Then I tried it and I had the opportunity to play on rgulirement before having the opportunity to have mine.
I test a lot of other guitars in the same price range before finally buying it, and it is in the "head of the pack" with Yamaha and Esp / LTD I think . APRS is matter of taste.

In short personnemenet this choice I would do every morning if needed for:
- The handle
- Sound, EMDU not at all in this range
- The look (I in "Crimson Swirl": MA-GNI-cific)

Since only less good points:
- The balance, not without good standing gnial strap (no sitting bp).
- Difficulty finding a good bag in which it comes;) .
