OTTIMO PRODOTTO

Bluepicker, 06.06.2018
I purchased this Jumbo acoustic guitar for live use, so the instrument had to be equipped with a pickup and an active preamp. Since the instrument in question would have been used mainly with DADGAD tuning and Heavy 0.60 / 0.14 caliber strings I needed an instrument that would support the tension of such big strings, not wanting to use one of my Martin or one of my Taylor I decided for this guitar, which honestly did not seem excellent but with a decent price-quality ratio, a very well-finished aesthetic and massive woods as stated by the seller. After the order the guitar was delivered in 4 days well packaged and intact, at a first visual examination the instrument was of considerable workmanship with very few smears of glue inside the box and valuable inlaid abalone as markers, very soft mechanics and precise with a beautiful golden color and faux mother of pearl knobs. Obviously the instrument was with the loose strings and then I proceeded to tune it and the only drawback: an Action too low that made it impossible to play the instrument, as a result I proceeded to raise the bone of the bridge by about 3 mm with appropriate thicknesses reporting the action at the right height. After retuning the surprise! Powerful bass and deep, medium and sharp balanced and ringing and a total volume in amazing acoustics (Much higher than my Martin D28 of 1978). Moreover, the very fast and fast handle allows easy jumps of position along the keyboard both in standard tuning and in DADGAD. Then I proceeded to test it amplified and yet the Fishman system with pre-amp and digital tuner did not betray my expectations: tested with a Hartke ACR5 50W amp the electrified sound is warm with powerful and defined bass, high-pitched and silvery bass (without the presence of medium frequencies that make an acoustic guitar more like an electric guitar). Ultimately a happy purchase that allows me to recommend this guitar to anyone!

Jumbo acoustic electric guitar.

Christopher6076, 20.03.2018
To cut a long story short, buy it, I doubt you will be disappointed!

I bought mine in mid January this year, 2018. It was well packed, double boxed and arrived in perfect condition. I bought it to play with my Banjo and Mandolin playing friend as my electric guitars tend to drown his sound even though I turn the amps well down. When I opened the boxes (avoiding injury from the Staples of Doom) I was amazed at the quality of the guitar. The neck is slim and feels more like an electric to play, the Gold tuners are smooth and look really nice with the Pearl buttons. The Ovangkol finger board is very nice and the fretwork is amazingly good. The frets themselves are small and thin which I like. The inlay work is perfect, no filler anywhere and the coloured centres look classy, not cheap to me. The nut is fine, no tuning issues. The Fishman pickup system works nicely as does the tuner once you get used to it, the sound plugged in is brighter compared to the more mellow unplugged tone. The Walnut back and sides, probably plywood but that I do not know for sure look very nice. The Rosette, pick guard, bridge and binding again seem of very high quality. The guitar is very light, almost weightless after playing my electrics. When I play plugged in I use either a katana 50 on the acoustic channel or a Vox Mini 3 battery amp or my Mustang 3 V2, it sounds well through them all. I have left my only criticism of this guitar until last. It may be I was a little unlucky but the grain on the top is a little washed out in a couple of places. This is a shame but then again in a way it adds character and is in no way a reason to reject the guitar. I hate to say that for the money this is a very good instrument because that does not do it justice, my opinion is, it is worth a lot more than I paid for it and so, Thank you Thomann! If you are looking for an acoustic electric Jumbo I really do not think you can go wrong with one of these!
