Stunning guitar
Chanser , 10.02.2021
This guitar is absolutely beautiful, the maple cap is stunning to look at in the dark sunburst and the headstock is matching which is a nice touch. The binding is really nice too. Everything about it is quality, it's solidly built with nice weight. The pickups sound amazing from superb clean tones, great sounding crunch, overdrive and metal tones and everything in between. The tone pot has a coil tap that gives even more tonal variety. This is a guitar that seems to have it all. The design is really good too, there is no problem accessing all 24 frets and the strings feel great to play. The neck is fast and feels great without being either too fat or too thin. The switch and pots feel good quality and work perfectly. The bridge is an evertune and it really is incredible. I didn't even have to tune the guitar when I took it out of the box for the first time. I will be using this guitar for both live work plaing covers and in the studio recording original songs. I have not yet found anything about this guitar I dont like. Over all I would recommend this guitar. At this price point it's hard to imagine anything being better. In addition I should say that the guitar arrived safely, delivered by UPS. It was packed well and set up well. I will tweak things to my own liking but any further set up will be minimal as it was so near the mark when delivered. The only delays were Brexit related and nothing at all to do with Thomann. The charges I had to pay were less than I thought they were going to be and although I strongly disagree with Brexit and the delays associated with it, this has not put me off buying from Thomann in the future.

An awesome versatile guitar
Enigmatic, 28.04.2021
I've bought this beautiful instrument for its evertune bridge. I needed a guitar that could stay in tune all the time, and my wish was granted. Once I got it, I just made some small adjustments to put it in drop D and tweaked the saddles to achieve a perfect intonation. The tone is awesome, and the fact that it has a coil tap makes it even more fantastic, I can do almost everything with this beauty, if it had a tremolo this instrument would have been the ultimate all-arounder, of course with the current evertune bridge it wasn't possible, but it doesn't matter. I'm very happy with it.

What a fine guitar!
Siggy N , 24.10.2020
Solid, good-sounding and beautiful! The evertune works well - and getting bending done is also easy. I have it set up to do so on the the brighter strings.
A little fret buzz on the low e (tuned to d-standard) when strumming medium to hard. Intonation was slightly low on the 12 fret and could have been better on A-D&G strings (after setup tuned one step down). But all in all very happy with the guitar! One of the best I have ever played.
