Big sound and beautiful mouth!

Gimme, 21.06.2011
She has everything for her!

Excellent quality finish, with a golden hardware of the most beautiful effect. The markers handle "flag" format add a little more character to this guitar that did not already lack!

The two active EMG pickups (81 & 60) send their typical sound and make this guitar ideal for those who like the "Les Paul" type but want a more Metal sound than Rock. However, it remains impeccable in a softer style.
In its clear, it delivers a well round and warm sound with a tendency to draw a little too much in the bass, without excess anyway.

The mechanics are of excellent quality and the guitar holds the tune very well the tuning, even by attacking the strings with vigor.

In short, today at less than 900EUR (paid 990EUR when my purchase in 2007) it represents a serious option for those who want big stuff without breaking the bank.

Also plan to buy strap-lock because it weighs its weight and if you are of the kind agitated on stage the attachments of origins are a little light.

A negative point? Go, to nibble a bit: we would have liked it to be delivered in its fly-case, but that's another story!
