Color under warm lamp light as in the stock photo, in daylight, the sunburst center is yellow-green.
The painting was done perfectly, the sunburst was applied carefully, the hand didn’t flinch anywhere, it was well polished.
Smudges, orange peels are not found.
Great weight, 2.9 kg is just a fairy tale.
The perfect balance.
Wood, declared as mahogany, I believe, I rummaged in timbral block the dark pink.
Fretboard Amaranth. If this is amaranth, then this is a very good tree, I liked it. Excellent color, after cleaning and coating with oil glistens.
The neck is round thick comfortable, like on the Les Paul 50s. Headstock is a good reinforced volute.
Frets from the box are polished, the ends are rounded.
Since the grinding paste remained on the frets and the fretboard, upon receipt it is necessary for everyone to carry out the standard procedure, polish the frets and clean the fretboard,
in order to get rid of dried plaque.
Let's go further. The timbral block, I see there was an attempt to shield with graphite, not entirely successful, but it was. The cover is shielded with foil.
Potentiometers, per tone "Alpha" at 500k logarithmic. At volume is "NoName" at 500k linear.
They also wanted to shield the “hole” under the pickup, but the brush with graphite had already dried up leaving a couple of strokes, but the tree was clearly visible.
The pickup is in perfect order, good shielded wires. 7.05 kΩ.
Pickguard is good, high-quality, three-layer.
Machine heads Wilkinson Deluxe, suitable, perfectly mow under the 50s of the last century.
nut one to one graftech as on Gib ...
Input Jack is not plasticine, great grip.
And of course, the bridge, is the weakest point.
But in my opinion, the bridge weight is too light. It takes more time to evaluate its strength and stability,
but for some reason I am inclined to think that it is a pressed powder.
Minimally lowering the strings allows for 1.8mm sixth and 1.5mm first ( 12 frets).
So, the guitar is assembled perfectly. It sounds to me, as it should, a deep round clean and sharp on crunch, perfectly responds to the tone knob.
Playable at 100%.
Blues, punk, rock and roll.
I can recommend it.
