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.

Worth every penny

29.03.2016
I have been playing guitar for about 16 years and was looking for a second instrument. I play both classical pieces, as well as pop songs (strumming and fingerstyle picking.) 400 ¤ were initially my personal financial ceiling.

However, when testing various guitars from different manufacturers, certain characteristics emerged which I added to the instrument. Apart from the sound, the feel and the optics, this also included, for example, a high-gloss lacquering due to the more comfortable care for me. A small expansion in terms of price was therefore unavoidable.

The Höfner HF18 had previously remarkably few reviews in comparison to other guitars with similar price. So I was initially skeptical. Nevertheless, the wood used and the finish convinced me, so I gave the guitar a chance. And it was absolutely worth it for me. The sound is amazing. The laurel wood looks fantastic and creates a beautiful contrast in combination with the spruce top. The mechanics are light-weight and fit perfectly into the overall picture.

I play fell with capo-soda, so I have a lot of unity and a full and clear sound very important. The first ordered guitar from this model series I have therefore sent back. (Because of the great distance to Thomann, only the detour over an order.) But already the second delivery contained an instrument, which convinced me completely. Even after several hours of daily playing, this guitar makes great joy and I can hardly lay it out of the hand.

My personal conclusion: Great sound (clear, full and balanced), beautiful appearance (strong contrast of the used woods and matching high-gloss finish), excellent playing feeling (by very good workmanship, rounded edges especially on the handleboard). Overall a great tool. Thank you Höfner and thank you Musikhaus Thomann.
