Remarkable value for the money!
RogMD, 16.05.2020
I (try to!) play both acoustic and electric guitar. I few years ago I had a really nice Crafter D8, but had to sell it due to a frozen shoulder which made it difficult to play, so I had to find something smaller. I had a conversation with Gordon Giltrap who has used several smaller guitars for both live performance and recording over the years. He kindly recommended the Vintage LH-VTG100N travel guitar which he was using on stage at the time (fitted with a Fishman pick up). I love this guitar and still have it so I was looking for something of a similar size with a pick up, but not another spruce top. I found that Adam Black made a Taylor GS Mini copy, but with no pick up and then came across the Thomann site and this guitar. For just over £100 I thought I’d take a punt!
When the guitar arrived by UPS it was very well packaged. After unpacking the guitar came with a decent gig bag, a cheapish jack lead (but still a nice touch) and of course the truss rod allen key.
Onto the guitar as it came out of the box. Positives were it wasn’t damaged, came with decent bronze strings (unusual for a budget guitar to come with good strings) and is a really nice looking guitar. Minor downsides were I think this should have been a B stock model and said so to Thomann, but I didn’t ask for a price adjustment because the guitar is such good value for money anyway! The issues were white tape marks on the body, a few dings and the tuners were a bit skew. Also, the finish of the bridge is poor, but will be easily rectified when I change strings.
How did it play out of the box. Well as I hoped the size was ideal for me, although it is towards the large size for a travel guitar. However, this means that the neck dimensions make it easy to play as opposed to a smaller guitar. I found the arched back and v-neck comfortable, and the action good for me, although it’s always good to let the guitar to acclimatise to its new home before making a judgement. The intonation is also good. I found the fret finish to be a bit rough, but again fairly minor and what you usually get with a budget guitar.
Onto how it sounds. Well for such an inexpensive guitar I think it has an excellent tone and is quite loud for its size. Of course it sounds different to my spruce topped Vintage guitar, but then you would expect that. The Bellcat AP-55 Active Powerjack is a bonus and while the guitar has no onboard controls I bought a Behringer V-Tone ADI21 preamp which inexpensive and works well, particularly to eliminate some of the piezo harshness. I can get some really nice tones using the Beringher and a Roland Microcube GX, particularly with chorus.
So what is my overall verdict? Well I absouluty love this guitar and try to play it most days. Everything about it is ideal for me and I’d be just as happy if I’d have paid a lot more for it! Would I make any changes? Well probably a robust pick guard if I wa gigging, and possibly a new pins, bone saddle and nut. Again all minor improvements to what is a really enjoyable guitar to play. Thanks Thomann and I look forward to my next purchase!

Fantastic
chrisie friday, 06.03.2021
This is my 5th HB.And my second acoustic.Firstly this a loverly looking instrument,the sound is bright,the action and intonation are perfect.The on board tuner and tone controls are useful.A small LED informs when the battery is low,it comes complete with one,a 9v pp3 zinc carbon.This will get you going but recommend you fit a alkaline one as soon as you can.Aso a lead,Allen key for the truss rod.A loverly gig bag is also included.If your a Leftie order ASAP,if you a right,WAIT,till the new model comes out,the lefties is the new model with the tuner and controls.This was delivered in days to the UK double boxed and well packed. clever touch.Also a you can put the pick up out of phase.There is a strap button on the body but not on the neck?If you need to use a strap you will need one with a headstock lace,I bought a strap that secured around the headstock and buttoned to a regular strap.A clever feature,when your using the tuner the pick up is muted.Feeds back a lot,but thats common on piezos.This also comes with a cracking gig bag.please note.This does have a ap55 pickup.I think the one now fitted is better,with a onboard tuner.Be interested to see when the new stock arrives.

Taylor GS mini Mahogany left handed traveller (tribute) 😀✌
Billbo, 11.08.2019
I ordered this in April and at the time it was out of stock, I received it mid July, I assume because of it being left handed. I wanted to see how it sounded in comparison to the Taylor gs mini I already own, and I am pleasantly surprised. The guitar is made to a great standard it looks beautiful and plays fantastic. Although it's more trebly than the Taylor it offers something different, I love its tone👍 it's a joy to play and I always have it at hand to pick up and play. Love it love it love it 😀👍✌

Just the Job!
GrottonGuitar, 03.04.2020
Looks great, Sounds great.
Very easy to play and needed nothing doing to it straight out of the box.
Not tried plugging it in yet, so cannot comment on that.

Nothing negative to say!

Great value for money and perfect for my son when he is at University.
