Great budget 8-string multiscale!

Michal6006, 21.02.2017
I have recieved my guitar yesterday and after one day of testing I can say that I am very satisfied. There was some wood imperfections on a fretboard and two maybe three little stains on a back of a body but overall I cant pretty much argue aboute anything more! The frets are well polished, and I didnt found any bumbs or sharp edges.The whole neck feels great and its well done. The saddles are good, machinehead works fine and stable, mono rail bridge looks good, the strings action could be lower, but I adjust it just fine to feel my needs. Electronics: no hissing or any other undesireable sound, good amount of gain for ultra distorted sounds, passive mount which is also nice too, I can say that for first impression they are better than RG8 stocks. Overall I found this guitar as very good choice for first 8-string with mutliscale, the transition from "normal" scale guitar was efortless, so there is no need to worry aboute that issue. Last, big thanks to all Thomann crew for fast delivery and very good contact and customer service.

I had my reservations. I also like to play high-quality guitars. But I must say that you can not go wrong with this guitar. For the sake of fairness, however, I must mention that I have tapped the exhibition.
Alone the look is stunning.
The dry sound is appealing.
The playability is perfect up to the highest positions.
The Fannend Frets only interfere with playing when you think about it.
The tuning stability is better than on my Ibanez 8 string.
The neck is of course wide, but is comfortable in the hand.
The strings can be adjusted nicely deep, without it rattling.
The pickups are moderate. So no Hi-Gain. But what speaks for the completely controlled sound of the guitar at the amplifier. A bit more thrust could be but for that you have its tretorgel in front of you.
The sound is therefore rather warm than snappy.

Negatively noticed is the following:

The toggleswitch is extremely light-weight. It springs back into the middle position with hasty actuation. There is already a feeling when changing the pickups.

The waist edges are somewhat sharp. This is also true of much more expensive guitars.

This guitar is not only suitable for beginners. Good. To master 8 strings is, of course, a thing in itself. It is a lot of fun to play.
