i saw this guitar and i was inlove.
The specs the color and just how it looks, made me fell in love.
I bought it and tried it and it was nothing really special.
- Pickups are average. No especial quality to mention. Just not great.
- Bridge is a 5 out of 10. It broke 2 of the high e Strings from the inside of the bridge, so there might be a sharp edge inside.
- Locking tuners are nice
- Paintjob and neck are both nice. Playability is average. neck is bit slimmer than a Harley Benton ST but nothing more than that.
- Very whell fretjob also.
But here the issue that made me return the guitar:
Nut is supposed to be bone. Im not really sure about that. It dont look like my other bone nuts. most importantly the slots are not lubricated or the locking tunners are not doing their job properly.
Simple bends (like David Gilmour style of bend) or just a simple use of the tremolo, will get the guitar out of tune 10 out of 10 times, by a lot.
I guess it could be the nut not being well lubricated ot the slot not being properly filed, but if I have to (after stretching the strings and setting the intonation and everything correctly) tune after every bend, its just not working.
I dont think it was the locking system because it was EVERY string and i dont find it probable that all of the locking tuners where just malfunctioning, yet this combined with how the pickup sounded, broke my heart.
Guitar was returned to Thomann and Im still on the search of another guitar like this one. :)
