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.

Great budget acoustic
arjan2602, 05.06.2021
I love the smaller body size. Great for an acoustic Blues. Very playable straight out of the box, might do some minor maintenance to the trussrod and frets when I change the strings. Tuners work great, workmanship is very good and sounds really good. This will be my throw-around couch guitar and will fit my needs very well. Build-in electronics work really well as well.

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.
