Best value guitar I have ever bought.
Honest Al. 21.05.2021
I'm an enthusiastic amateur who plays mainly at home. My other main electric guitar is an American Stratocaster and I was looking to widen my range without breaking the bank. Following a bit of research it looked like it was going to be either an Epiphone or the Larry Carlton and although I've only owned it a short time, all the signs are I have made a good decision.
Firstly, it is thing of beauty and if it didn't make some nice sounds it would probably be worth the purchase price as an ornament alone. The finish is absolutely top notch with a perfect blue green flamed maple top blending in a complementary fashion with the stained timber back and neck. It really looks good.
It's quite a heavy guitar but not excessively so as its what you would expect with mahogany and the reward is how it resonates so beautifully. Indeed it makes an impressive sound without an amp. The neck is absolute perfection, slim with a satin finish and the ebony board has an easy action and looks great. The frets are the best I have ever encountered.
After the guitar was tuned for the first time, it stayed in tune with very little adjustment required. I presume this is partly down to the locking tuners which look good and work well.
I'm still trying to work out how to get the best out of the pickups and whilst they are both very good and even exceptional for the price of the instrument they are not quite up to the standard of my strat which lets not forget would cost about three times the price. Whatever the case, it's easy to make a nice sound particularly employing the neck and middle position.
So there you have it. It has a relatively short scale which suits me because I'm not exactly a giant. When you consider the package as a whole, the spec and quality of finish, it is genuinely mind boggling how the manufacturer can do it and still make a profit. So well done them. I suspect as word gets around they may well start to sell pretty quickly and so they should.

Pickups e Liuteria da urlo

Chitarra veramente ben fatta: di categoria superiore alle aspettative.
Meccaniche molto precise, fluide e stabili (locking Tuners), manico satinato comodissimo e perfetto con il giunto al corpo che facilita l'accesso agli ultimi tasti (ho mani grandi).
Ponte di buona fattura e nut di qualità in osso. Legni di buona qualità lavorati in maniera eccelsa anche nei minimi dettagli ( Peso classico Les Paul).
Pickup brillanti che regolati con i toni a 5 danno il classico suono PAF ( volevo cambiarli con i Mojotone 59 Clone Set, ma dopo averli provati...mi tengo i suoi !).
Stupendi nei puliti e aggressivi quanto serve (dove cavolo è scritto che devono avere un alta uscita: qui abbiamo i valori classici dei Burstbuckers 1 e 2 circa 7.5 e 8.2 al ponte ): mi piacciono e tanto e soprattutto finalmente un PU al manico che suona alla grande !
Versatilissima nei suoni dal Blues al Jazz al Rock (anche estremo).
Settata già bene di fabbrica: giusto una piccola regolata all' action ed è perfetta.
Il Set di corde dovrebbe essere 0.10-0.52 se non addirittura 0.11-0.54 ( non ho trovato documentazione al riguardo).
Una chitarra dal miglior rapporto qualità prezzo senza ombra di dubbio soprattutto per gli amanti della Les Paul: trovate voi, se ci riuscite, una copia Les Paul cosi ben fatta e a questo prezzo.

PS: Misurato diametro corde: 0.10-0.47 ...sembravano piu grosse...

Easy to play, smooth and clear sound. Edges of frets were nice and smooth but there is occasional buzzing in a few areas.
