This one I will not leave!

By ilcocodrillo, 10/07/2014
Made in FRANCE! Yep it does then it is more maddening to price ... Coté technical description I think everything has already been said and mine is totally the same origin if one day the famous rejoin SH1 and 4 superb violin but is not yet valid because it already sounds really good like that.
A small tower in the luthier when I bought it to polish the frets and the usual settings.


The handle is a narrow hair, I have big paws too ... The beast is a bit heavy, less than a Les Paul but more than a strat for example. The weight is on the rear making the knees resting on the complicated to manage, but this is a minor position, look for little to no find fault ...


It's just perfect for me that makes a little bit of everything but the choice is rather Blues Rock.


I use it for more than two years and by repeating in concert, I had a lot of guitars and this one will stay with me until I can no longer play with his girlfriend Stat (Japan 83, yeah I know it seems that it is of the japanese shit ... it seems only this one ;-) would probably fade some U.S. that sounds like cutting boards ..) and TV (2003 U.S. one that twang) .

If I had to buy a guitar it would be this one again!

I'm in love with Roxanne.

Does everything said by my collgues, manufactures Bdarieux, beautiful and unique stringed .... Brands Rican legends are envious of.
I prfre also compares his body flat Roxanne normal.
I still have the original pickups.


The handle is gnial to quibble it would be a bit wider for me and hello Nirvana.
It is heavy as the Gibson, the game standing request a long effort.
To play sitting down, it's the cat, the body shape (so pretty) is the center of gravity while the rear, and hop your ass falls without stopping .... I always play sitting, damage .... if not for the rest all is well.


I kept the original pickups, LAG-CUSTOM Alnico 5, manufactured in Kent Armstrong. The neck pickup delighted me by its roundness and warmth, the bridge provides good too. The sustain is amazing, the violin is in the sounds warm, feed, round, crmeux, but not slamming the bass. The Santana sound, all I was looking for. Apparently to restore the Seymour Duncan SH1 and TB4 for which it is not gives him wings, so I think spending a day, especially for JB model in the bridge .... because the LAG-Custom original run I get tired of it yet. On my 50 watt Marshall is that of happiness.


I have since 1997, the violin has not moved, but I have redone a youth on the oxidation of frets, and various spices mtalliques (rust ...). A cleaning and oiling the rosewood of the key. I put chrome surrounds microphones instead of plastic, that my bella!
Its strong points are an exceptional violin, and the sound to match. Missing q'up-grader microphones, and the Les Paul will be jealous ...
In the silent era given the price given the quality (equivalent 600), now there is not a LAG Bdarieux this rate, only the Coren.
I would do if this choice? A thousand times yes!

A Les Paul DC "Made in France"

By Eulfred, 18/01/2011
To repeat the essential points, this guitar is made in France (Bédarieux), it is equipped with an easel tune'o matic, the handle is a nice round profile C and varnishes, 22 frets, 2 alnico humbuckers Lag zebra home , 2 volumes, one tone Generally, a 3 position selector, mine is sunburst red pulling brown / orange with a table of beautiful curly maple, I replaced the microphone by the contours of the color creams, I mounted caches chrome microphones and I replaced the knobs with Gibson type of copper, which gives it a very vintage look.


The handle is comfortable and holds well in hand, he is not tiring, the advantage compared to a Les Paul is its access to much higher acute because the heel is almost nonexistent, so access even higher than some guitars sleeve screwed start type, the frets are medium.
on the other hand weight issue ... it's heavy! 4.4 kg on the scale ... nothing to envy to a good Les Paul that respects itself, provide strap locks and a good padded strap.


So one thing is clear: the pickups though correct, does not make any justice to this violin, I quickly upgraded the beast with the usual couple SH4 / SH1 and there is already much teeth ... I recently mounted a pro in Burstbucker bridge and there was this revelation! nothing to envy to a good Les Paul with access to higher highs, a table of beautiful flamed an absolutely flawless finish, short of happiness!

The sounds are warm and fat distortion in, I play a Peavey Triple XXX head and preamp Rocktron Piranha spent in the loop, sending it very heavy.


I use now for 13 years, this guitar is a bargain, especially at the price where it occurs on occasion (between 400 and 500 €), I had purchased the period 5600 F (850 €) New Paris and it was already a very good deal.
The main interest of this guitar is his violin and his exceptional finish, the pickups need to be replaced, it must make a choice because it is a violin "heavy" that favors the low thousands, perhaps even more certain that the Paul, so do not hesitate to put microphones favoring the treble and high mids.
I think that at present, yet little guitar can compete with this model for the little that is looking for a Les Paul Standard DC ...

TycoTyco's review

By TycoTyco, 05/04/2010
BSH model manufactured Bédarieux 1998.

Bought used because it is a lag and a more classic Roxanne, ie with the table flat (not domed), and I have found it more refined, more classy, ​​and ... Sexiest ...

Her dress is black with translucent painted at the flamed maple top, really beautiful ...

When bought, it was equipped with a kit EMG Zakk Wylde badly wired ...

Truly a beautiful violin, really class, beauty and good work ...


A very good handle, nice accurate and fast, very good mechanical oil bath. Action set relatively low and NO FRISE ...

The microphones are fitted as original, to my taste, a bit light given the violin and I put the kit to put an EMG SH2 and SH4, printing in paragraph sound ...

The guitar is pretty heavy, and compared with a Vigier, less comfortable and less balanced, and if allowed to weightlessness, the body weight outweighs the handle takes some getting used to monitor this trend to meet the handle.


Whether with the original pickups (split-No) or Seymour SH2 and SH4 (in split-Montes), guitar rather versatile, comfortable everywhere but really well-known character: a very good guitar.

So, I had purchased second-hand kit with EMG Zakk Wylde wired incorrectly, so test first rather average, but with a background sound that ... Upon purchase, I equipped with the SH2 and SH4 for 3 / 4 month. One morning, I found the kit EMG and decided to go back on ROXANNE respecting the recommended wiring for 2 volumes and a common tone, and then plugged into my Mesa, N. .. D. .. !

THE BIG SOUND! The ultra successful marriage of a very good violin with excellent microphones. So I finished off the wiring, carefully designed with a back plate with a hatch for the battery of active pickups. To believe that it was planned ... The for ...

This LAG equipped with EMG 81 and 85 is really a Lead Guitar ... Sustain with the devil ...


So it's been a little over 2 years that I have this guitar became my lead. I have read and understood that the EMG and in particular the 81 was dry and cold ... To be humble opinion, it depends on the violin and ... that is sent with the guts ... Depending on the settings and effects that are stuck you can type in creamy blues or metal although rare.

As for the price, 550 euros for the guitar with the kit and its former EMG electronics, 100 euros for 2 Seymour Duncan (used) and about 30 euros various stuff.
Oh, and LAG hard case I had a hard time finding 60 euros.

Total: 740 euros, and again, I can sell the 2 Seymour, but I keep ...

In conclusion, a P. .. guitar with a P. .. sound, so the stories are really secondary money .... But emotionally, it has a P. .. value ...!
