Nil Hammerstrumm, 28.04.2020
The guitar arrived in good condition and apart from some glue residue under the bridge looks well built. All it needed was a tune up, and presto. For a cheap extra guitar it played well enough.

But: when i tuned to DADDAD open tuning, which is why i wanted the guitar, the low E (now D) rattled on 7 and 8th fret. As the action already was a bit high, i could not adjust neck, nut or bridge.
I decided to try a low E (052) from a Peavey 011 set, and that solved the problem.
The high E, and B string sound dull. This is a common complaint of the cheap HB 012 set, so I hope to solve that with the peavey 011 set, which i use for all my acoustic guitars.

I ordered at the same time the HB "baby taylor copy", which is excellent, for that price. Gave me confidence to order the Epiphone Riviera custom P93.

Good body, good tuner and pickup, horrible neck and frets
_Customer, 06.10.2019
I really want to love this guitar, but when it arrived several frets were so low that I had to have portions of the neck re-fretted. The 4th, 9th, and 11th frets were nearly smooth with the neck, which also had a slight warp.
The instrument's sound is great, but I didn't like having to take it to a luthier just to make it playable. I'll still order from Thomann Music, just not another guitar, and likely not one of their own brand of products.
After having the instrument re-fretted, some wood shaved off the fingerboard, and the bridge adjusted, it sounds and works great.

A true blues guitar
Orfeo1608, 25.02.2019
I was astonished by the quality of this guitar. The "antiqued " finishing is nice, better than the pictures. Sound is good for blues, bluegrass and folk music. Pickup and tuner work nicely. Only adjustment needed was the action but it's personal. Strongly recommended.

Trés bon son
PatKar, 08.03.2021
la guitare est agréable mais les frètes sont trop longues et accroche la mains, comment faire pour les limer sans abimer le bois du manche ?
