- Corps agathis V-shaped (inspired by the signing of Dave Mustaine) black
- Bolt-on maple
- 24 frets, rosewood fingerboard, mark boxes with point and model name in the box 12 °
- Pickups ESP LH-300
- 2 volumes, a 3-position selector, 1 tone
- Black plate with white outline
- Input jack on the horn from the top, near the attachment strap
The use is really striking! It is very nice and the handle is comfortable. I had it in hand without time to adapt.
Thanks to this V-shape, access to acute no problem against the material.
Head a little picnic as it is not equalized by weight, but the form can hold it in place by putting his leg in the V.
The biggest problem that I found as many guitars, the position of the volume. It is too close to the transition from my hands when I play. Either I cut the volume, I hit the little finger.
The pickups are probably very good for metal, favorite style of guitar. But it is nothing to what would be blues, jazz and funk. Without distortion, I did not find any personality. Yet I tried it on different amps (Peavey, Marshmall, Fender).
Although unsatisfied for his plain, it is a pure delight in punchy distortion for metal and metal core.
I think it would be interesting to change the pickups for Bill Lawrence L-500, or EMG 81/85, see HZ ALX, to increase its range of sound.
I used it for 2 years, but not useful in my groups, I sold € 230.
I loved him so much for its playability, but was very disappointed with the sound (for € 500, they could have put EMG HZ at least!)
The value for money is bad, because to suit me, it would change the pickups.
I can do it again this election if I found the opportunity to change the electronic

Marmotte666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is a flying V guitar metal type with the following characteristics:
- Agathis body.
- Bolt, 24 frets maple.
- Rosewood Fingerboard, Jumbo Frets.
- Milestones by "dot" pearl inlaid with model name at 12th fret.
- 2 micros ESP LH-300.
- Mechanical oil bath.
- Chrome hardware.
- 2 volume controls and 1 tone control,
First good surprise, the handle is a delight to play with jumbo frets, riffs out with ease. The weight of the instrument is reasonable, it can play a good hour without suffering from the shoulder. In terms of balance is another matter, the head pointing down as soon as we loose, we can solve this problem by wedging the body of the guitar against his leg, but it remains fairly natural.
Although they are passive, the two microphones is no shortage of potatoes, it is clearly in a configuration designed to send the sauce with big distos. I opted for a D tuning with a 15W Peavy amp Vypyr and it is a pure happiness at this level I'm thrilled! I use little clear sound, it's still quite playable, but it does not register targeted by this instrument.
I own this guitar for over a year, I tend to play less and less, mainly because of the questionable ergonomics related to its shape. The finish could be better for a guitar that is still worth over 400 euros, the body is an assembly of 3 pieces of wood, the main (in the continuity of the handle) is thicker than the other two, not terrible ...
That said the sound is very good for heavy game at this level you will not be disappointed.
