Killer guitar, especially for the low price tag!

Daniel G. 770, 13.03.2017
I bought this guitar without actually ever seeing one in person, so i truly had no idea if i would love it or hate it. Thomann's returns policy made it a no brainer, so i thought "why not?!"

Service and shipping was top notch as always. This is the reason i'm a repeat customer here at Thomann.

First off, let me just say that the minute i opened up the box and took one look at the guitar.... I knew it was gonna be something special.

I paid somewhere in the region of £650 pounds for this including shipping, and the looks and visual appearance of the guitar are what i would've expected to see on a guitar in the £1500 to £2000 price range.

Gorgeous quilted maple top in purple burst, loads of pretty figuring in the top and it still totally looks great even when the light isn't hitting it.

The finish overall is really good quality, with nice 3 ply binding all the way around the whole guitar too. The neck is satin finished and i can honestly say it's even faster feeling than my Charvel necks (which are bare maple, raw unfinished). It's a D shaped neck to me, but without too much 'shoulder'. It's fairly thin and flat overall. Very comfortable and easy to shred on!

Huge jumbo 6100 sized frets, all smooth and effortless to bend on. The compound radius means you can have super low action without choking out on bends too. Nice!

The locking tuners are great and rock solid, although they took a few minutes to learn how to change strings. They should really include a user guide or a link to a youtube video explaining the procedure.

The pickups are USA Seymour Duncan Blackouts (active) and they're killer. Hot as EMG's, but tonally more like a passive pickup. To my ears, the bridge model sounds somewhere inbetween a JB and Distortion, but with more output and more tight low end thump. The neck pickup sings and sounds like a thick Les Paul neck pickup tone!

Acoustically i'd say the guitar sits tonally inbetween a LP Custom, SG and with the midrange of a V. I love my 2 LP Customs but honestly, this guitar gets the job done perfectly, weighing only a fraction of the weight and with effortless playability.

The bridge and tailpiece are rock solid, no complaints there. The nut was nicely cut too, no tuning issues to report!

Balance-wise the guitar sits comfortably. It's not neck heavy nor body heavy.

I can't really think of any 'cons' to be honest. Maybe that it doesn't come with a hard case? But that would only increase the price tag higher anyway, so no real benefit to that.

I'm enjoying this guitar that much that i may well take 2 of these out on the road with me, i'm currently eyeing up the Trans Red and Tobacco Burst finishes :-)

good sound, not good quality

Ficho, 30.11.2017
Tried this guitar, unfortunately the hardware and electronics are not great. It doesnt stay in tune, the tuners are not smooth when operating, the volume knob doesnt work properly (its either full volume, or no volume). The tone knob doesnt seem to work at all. Also, fret finishing not so smooth on the edges.
Good things: Looks cool, very easy and comfortable to play, and the pickups are very good.
Shame overall, but for the price the quality makes sense.
