I can not separate ... - Reviews Ibanez ST55

Japanese manufacturing, this guitar was given to me in 1980.
It has 24 frets, pickups Ibanez V2 Maxons (two screws at the top for height adjustment, cream color)
Fixed bridge
Ibanez mechanical locking.
Like fine tuning.
I understand that these pickups were arrested at the time for an obvious problem with DiMarzio ... about the color)
These original, with a huge gain microphones have recently been replaced by a couple SH2, SH4 Seymour Duncan.
These are more accurate, more modern but less saturation and gain.

Setup 2 Volume Two Tone, a selector

UTILIZATION

The neck is a little wide, but nice.
Access to acute is OK, the weight is ... very consistent. It's heavy!
The violin is excellent, Mahogany.
Color Sunburst
The sustain is ok.

SOUNDS

Its very correct clear as saturated.
Clearly, I play on a Roland Cube 60 W Orange at the time.

Saturated on a home made tube amp 1W G1 project

OVERALL OPINION
