Amazing for the Money
Guitar Kev, 08.03.2019
I am just a casual guitarist and wanted a PRS style guitar to add to my collection. Had it for 6 months now and it is my go to instrument as it playes so easily and with good range of sounds.
PROS: the guitar is stunning, the flamed maple is lovely and understated with the black flame, so to appreciate you have to get close and be interested. Also love the blackness and not faded grey which the original PRS is. Well finish, high gloss, good fittings. Pick up are certainly 'Hot' but you can dial them down to smooth things out. excellent service during the ordering and the delivery stages.

CONS: two main gripes.
First - Out of the Box the nut was hideously setup, with about 3mm play to the first frett, when string held at the second frett! Don't think this had been through Thommans fabled QC, which is a shame as that was something I was looking forward to. Anyway, I set about the nut with some files and finally got it down to acceptable play, at which point everything settled in well and is easy to play.
Second: 2 of the tuners are not as 'slick' as the other 4. They tend to stick and take significantly more effort to move. This was slighly improved when I tightened the locking nuts on the top, that were loose, and lubticated them, but still a long way from my Epiphones and fender tuners on my other guitars.
So overall good, excellent service during the ordering and the delivery stages, just a shame that it appears to have missed the QC and set up stage in the Thomman factory.

Stunning Very Affordable Guitar
andreros, 23.04.2019
Got my guitar very well packed, in less than a week after ordering it and I am nothing but amazed with the attention to detail given to an instrument in this price range.

Looks and finishing:
Absolutely stunning! Book matched flame top burst from black to gray (in my case). The one advertised had a brown transparent wood back and neck, mine is painted black. High gloss finish with no flaws. This guitar has a plus top, not plain. The binding color is pretty and well done. No blemishes whatsoever. The fret job is very well done, with no sharp frets. After adjusting, the arm is perfectly straight and the frets perfectly leveled.

Hardware:
The hardware is fine, the bridge was very easy to intonate correctly, the neck was very easy to adjust and leave perfectly straight. The string action is very low (if you like it setup like that) and without any fret buzz. The tremolo arm has a very clever thread free fixation, it does not leave its place despite what some might say. When swinging the arm in a very wide movement the guitar does get out of tune, what I would say it is expectable. The tuners are OK although one is more difficult to turn than the other 5. The guitar came with a .010 .046 D'Addario string set. No rust at all.

Electronics
The Roswell LAF pickups are OK, not the sharpest tools in the shed, but they do their job. The neck pickup lacks a bit of definition, but nothing too serious. The pots work well and splitting the coils really changes sound, especially if you do it with clean tones.

The guitar weights around 3,5kg, I consider it light. There is definitely room for improvement if you intend to use the guitar as a base for modifications. If you don't, you won't be disappointed! In fact, I thing you'll be in love! Guess I was lucky with this one! I totally recommend it! Have fun!!!!
