This has been priced incorrectly..

Scott_W, 11.07.2017
Just wow. £75?

Im a bedroom player. Occasionally I'll venture into a different room, mind.I had a relatively expensive Fender FSR Rosewood tele. Loved it, but for the price i could sell it at i could have three guitars....so thats what happened. Sold the Fender for 10 times the price of this. Really.

I expected it to look nice but feel like it cam from a kinder egg.

BLOWN AWAY. Looks are stunning, hardware is all decent. Sure, it may get modded but what you get it fine. Decent bridge, nut looks cheap but works with no flaws, tuners hold, switch and knobs are sturdy.

The neck is nice and meaty without being too fat. I expect poor fretwork...nope. Perfectly rounded but do need a polish.

£75!!! Seriously still gobsmacked.

Well played, Thomann.

fantastic - again

lupinehorror, 28.04.2015
i really don't know how thomann do this for the money. really.
wanted something that i could do a bit of modding with...something i wouldn't regret making a bit of a mess with. at this price i didn't have to think twice.
body? my example has a 5-piece body and rather nice grain. the sunburst is done well as is the finish. the finish is quite thick...won't be easy to remove if you wanted to. that's not a criticism though as it will protect the wood from knocks and bumps.
simple bridge which provides good intonation and was already set so the strings were at a decent height. no need for adjustment there.
pickups? suitably jangly as you would expect from a tele style guitar. they do pack a punch though and i'm keeping them for the moment. they do produce a lot of hum when i'm using high gain but the vast majority of single coil pickups will do that no matter what the price.
neck? i was ready to attack the back of the neck with wire wool to obtain a nice, satin, finish. i didn't have to. out of the box it has a lovely sheen which enables your hand to slide easily up and down the neck. the neck is maybe the thing that surprised me most about this guitar. the finish is great all over and extends all the way up to the well shaped headstock.
fingerboard? one of my main criticisms with the last harley benton i purchased was the fingerboard. it wasn't well finished and could have been much improved. with this tele things are a lot more pleasant. nice close grain and very smooth. i did give it few drinks of lemon oil when i changed the strings though.
frets? they're well dressed all the way up to the top (or down to the bottom...whatever way you're looking at it). i was getting some buzz when fretting at the 1st but a slight loosening of the truss rod sorted that quickly.
tuners? not bad. not great either. sure you could get away with using them but i fitted some wilkinsons for extra stability (it's a £48 guitar remember...you can't expect grovers on there).
to sum up. am i happy with my purchase? very happy. so happy in fact that i think i'll buy another one for my brother.
service from thomann was excellent as always. i'll be back many more times.
