Hollow body, it must be said.

UTILIZATION

The handle is large, it must be used.
It is super light, too see ...
Good access to acute.

on the other hand and this is its biggest flaw, no playing comfort .. I explained there 2 settings microphone, volume and tone, therefore all 6 pots. Manufacturers put them in the most uncomfortable position, above the ropes so. It is suddenly difficult to play, may be why I do not use it as often as she deserves ...
I'll try to cobble something kind of capo plexi, observe the look, not for nothing that Jack White turns the knobs on its Airline '59 1P.

SOUNDS

Agree to anything that is a little dirty I think. I rock, connect a Voxac30 the treat.

OVERALL OPINION

I es for 1 year, I use actually seen little discomfort that causes the knobs settings.

AC of the mouth, being alone on stage with a drummer, it throws.

This is a guitar that I buy without really trying, I love the musicians using: Calexico, White Stripes and even the Black Keys.

Good look comes at a price, and € 1,100 is expensive. I buy a guy who just came to the new offer (1 month) suddenly I paid much less.

I do tip though not too much, you pay the look, the sound is, of course, but for the price I paid more like a brand ...
