Good gameplay and a lot of volume for this price class.
GernotU, 18.11.2013
Sound: Acoustic basses and pleasantly penetrating heights.
Processing: In the usual Höfner quality.
I bought the instrument for my student. It is very beautifully processed and speaks very much about the design. It sounds like an 800-1200 Euro guitar.

Simply perfect
Jean-Jacques L., 06.07.2011
I own this guitar for about 6 months, I was seduced by the beauty of the case in laurel, without too much illusion about the sound, at least in this price range. The surprise was total:

The finish and the quality of the wood are worthy of a luthier guitar, the grain of the table is relatively tight which is a guarantee of a good resonance, the handle is reinforced, the case is beautiful, the mechanics are Very nice quality. There are no varnish burrs. The sails appear in bone, in any case they are very hard and rigid, here again pledge of beautiful sonority and tuning stability.

It is possible that I fell on an exceptional copy, but the first guitar shipped broke, and presented the same qualities (although I obviously could not test the sound). THOMANN exchanged it without any difficulty.

In use I quickly lowered the height of the easel in order to decrease the action, I gained in sustain without making the strings curly because the handle is flexible enough to curve slightly and maintain a Sufficient string height on all frets.

The case was made quite quickly and the sound became surprising for an instrument at 400EUR, and even surprising all short. The choice of the strings is crucial because this guitar does not have the power and the projection of a professional instrument. I arrive with a great clarity and a sound level appreciable with HANNABACH Titanyl or AQUILA Alchemia.

Finally, two small reproaches: a varnish a little thicker unnecessarily weighing the guitar, and a handle also a little thick which could make it difficult in hands too small.
