Good guitar

Brux, 15.03.2018
I was looking for a Spanish woman with a good price and with previous one, I liked it because of how beautiful it is, I love the cover so clearly and the contrast with the dark fingerboard. What did not convince me was that the previous one was not fishman, in the Thomann recordings it sounded a little potter. But since I'm a lefty and the other option a little more expensive and fishman was not to my liking for the color I decided to try.

When I opened the box I took the disappointment of my life, the guitar was beautiful and very well built, but the fretboard did not match the photos, it was a light brown plastic, throwing milk chocolate very ugly. It seemed like a toy. Besides, the plugged in sound left a lot to be desired, it was absolutely metallic and rumbled, there was no way to equalize it.

But.....

A day and a half later I picked up the guitar again, and the tuning fork had changed color, it was completely dehydrated, and with a cap of something that made it look so ugly, but given the high humidity of my city ( Valencia), the tuning fork hydrated itself and began to take a much darker color, more like the one in the photos. I cleaned it thoroughly and gave it lemon oil, now it's very nice and dark, like the one in the photos, the change has been radical and spectacular.

As for the sound I came to the conclusion that the strings that comes standard, some adanez, do not do any good and are not the right ones, without plugging in they have a pass and sound good, too metallic for my taste, but admissible, it is when plugging the amp when it did not sound good, those strings in my view are not worth for that or this preview does not get along with them.

I changed them for a D'addario of normal tension, and the change could not have been better, now it sounds plugged in wonderfully, absolutely natural and very clear the strings in both strumming and stippling. A pity that the sound demos are not recorded with these strings.

Otherwise it comes with a low action pulling to normal, but after adjusting the soul, yes, you have read well, it has adjustable soul, the purists are likely to pull the hair, but for me it has been one of the reasons why I bought it, the action went down and without fret, very comfortable and soft. In addition the nut is 48mm and for those of us who come from the electric that is appreciated. The mast thickness is great, very thin to be a Spanish.

It also comes with a great big bag, very good and even brings a strap to play standing up.
