I want to know!

Nico823, 12.03.2015
Ausgesucht, bestellt, erhalten!

Erster Eindruck: Nichts scheppert, alle Schrauben fest, Lackierung bis auf eine kleine Überarbeitung (wen kümmert's?) tadellos, Saitenlage und Oktavreinheit laden sofort zum Spielen ein. Der zweiteilige Hals ist passgenau eingeleimt (So manche Epi kann sich da was abgucken!) und liegt super in der Hand. Die Gitarre ist in sich ausgewogen. Das "Santana PRS Bodyshaping" erhöhen das Spielgefühl nochmal.
Die beiden Potis sind leichtläufig, der PU Schalter hingegen nicht (mag ich aber so!). Die Mechaniken verrichten ihren Dienst und tragen zu einer überraschen Stimmstabilität bei, die ich so in dieser Preisklasse nicht erwartet hätte.

Kalt gespielt, erzeugt die 3,8 kg schwere Gitarre einen ausgewogenes transparentes Klangbild. Die Bässe bringen den Mahagonibody schön zum Schwingen. Akkorde klingen ausgewogen und die niedrige Saitenlage lädt zu schnellen Läufen über die sauber ausgerichteten Bünde ein.

Bis jetzt nur positiv überrascht. Anstöpseln und hören!
Die Saiten werden, egal in welcher PU-Schaltung, gleichmäßig abgenommen, was in höheren Preislassen nicht immer der Fall war/ist. Akkorde klingen transparent, nichts matscht. Keine Deadspots! Doch leider fehlt es den PU an Mitten, sodass ein 'hohler' Eindruck entsteht - da hilft auch das Tonpoti nichts. Im Akkordspiel kommt die 2.Auffälligkeit: fehlende Dynamik. Soll heißen: leicht bis normal angeschlagene Akkorde klingen rund. Bei härterem Anschlag wird der Ton aggressiver, als wäre in den PU's ein Verzerrer - gewöhnungsbedürtig!

Gitarre weggestellt - zurücksenden? Nein 2.Chance. Neue Saiten aufgezogen und ohne Erwartung nochmal los gespielt, EQ vorgeschaltet und los:

Akkordspiel clean und leicht gecrunched:
Steg-PU: sehr scharf und kanntig. Auch die Bässe knacken.
Hals.PU: Akkorde sind warm, bleiben Transperent und werden nicht von der tiefen E-Saite erschlagen.
Beide PU's zusammen ergeben einen näselnden, ja beinahe stratähnlichen, percussiven Ton. Gefällt sehr! Mein Eindruck: Beide PU's sind charakterlich näher an P90 als an Humbuckern.

Solo:
Steg-PU: ebenfalls sehr scharf und kantig mit wenig Sustain.
Hals-PU: sustainreicher, bluesy.
Beide PU's zusammen vereinen beide Charaktere: percussiven Biss mit einer Dosis Bass (Den Rest überlassen wir dem Bassisten!)

Auffällig beim Singlenotespiel: Ab dem 11./12. Bund muss man richtig arbeiten. Ordentliches Fingervibrato ist angesagt, da kurze Mensur und Beschaffenheit der Pickups nicht mehr allzu singende Töne zulassen.
Apropos Vibrato. Da ich selbige selten nutze, bleibt es erst mal fixiert.

Was bleibt? Zurücksenden? Never ever!
Die CST-24T ist keine Gibson oder PRS - dass hat sie ja auch nie behauptet. Sie besitzt jedoch genug Charakter, vor allem in der Mittenposition, um im Heimstudio und sicher auch auf der Bühne das ein oder andere Mal ein Hinhörer zu sein. Ein Hingucker ist sie ja auf alle Fälle und in Sachen Verarbeitung/Einstellungen lässt sie nichts zu wünschen übrig. Für den ein oder anderen Interessenten scheitert's evt. am Ton- und Volumenpoti - die kann man austauschen. Den PU's sollte man eine Chance geben, wenn's mal anders klingen soll.
Diese Gitarre ist mehr als ein Gimick und bleibt deshalb bei mir!

Für Anfänger halte ich diese Gitarre für absolut ungeeignet. Eine ordentliche Paulakopie einer bekannten Marke dankt dem Anfänger sein Bemühen weitaus mehr (plus Wiederverkaufswert). Erfahrungen mit EQ und Sustainer sind hier auch von Vorteil.

Schöner Nebeneffekt: Ich kann auf dieser E-Gitarre picken - und es klingt!

I will have a lot of fun ...

Hendrik8042, 17.03.2015
I ordered it because my ex with Fr was already a good grip and clearly better than expected! Thus, these strings made a great first visual impression. In the first short play I thought, okay sound, but somehow something unfinished ... of course, they have disassembled, Potis and toggle replaced something better and the positions toggle switch and Tone-Poti swapped. The frets are polished and thicker.
Octave purity and strings.
The guitar really weighs and sings beautiful, neither pappy nor dull or tinkling. The neck is great playable (For me) the sustain is really quite good.
At the Neckpickup is not to my taste nix exposing, there is pressure and dynamic not so mumpy, but the bridge humbucker seemed to me somewhat lifeless and far weaker than the neck.
More on that later.
But is not a problem for me, I had already thought of it: D Otherwise, the small knock with the long neck leaves little room for criticism ... The Tigerlook is well done and the binding is mega precise!
Vllt. Happiness?
I found only the chrome buttons, amber speed knobs in their place ... otherwise great balanced ... of the quality and the sound, I can put them loose over some teurere ... and still many hours on it play !!!

Now I have tested the baby already a few times in the Proberaum under full load and they do their job more than good! YOU CLING!
And like a mahogany guitar (from a maplet in the low strength one can hear nothing, I think times.)
The bridge humbucker, which I had underestimated at the beginning, is now also very much in my heart. After a new cabling and the removal of a piece from the pickup cable, (saw a bit for melted insulation, therefore, possibly the sound loss.) It stands loudly on the eye level. And runs absolutely satisfying
Because I do full metal music with it, the pickup also had on my previous configuration, a bit too little gain generated to carry lead sound and pinch harmonics. I habs at the 808 Overdrive with Level and Gain nachgedreht and see there, I got a new main guitar!
I do not put them away. The playability and the sound are a real pleasure and it sounds particularly great on deep moods and with full thrust from the tube cabinet wall! Of course, the guitar has a different character than the usual metalgeige, a bit wirier and percussive, darker, and rougher but that's what I was looking for and it delivers more than officially, and (subjectively) is very intuitive and easy.
Actually incomprehensible!
The pickup in the cf to emg81 has a positive effect on the sound separation.
The fast things come so much more precise not so crowded with frequencies ... just great the thing.
The guitar has everything I wanted and is full of positive moments of surprise :) And since I as a non-inexperienced metal guitarist had a lot of work equipment, it is not so easy to delight me so much. Of course, the instrument does not have the processing perfection of a "real", and I have gained a lot of sound and quality through my invested work, but still the thing was great from the factory.
At 14 I would have been happy to get a guitar for 400 marks, that would have been impossible in 1992!
A sowas of purchase recommendation and ne 1 +++ for Thomann and its own brand!
