UTILIZATION

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.

SOUNDS

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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
