Great little steel guitar

04.03.2016
I've had this for a few years and thought I'd write a review that has a little more history, other than the usual taking the guitar out of the box, giving it a few strums and then commenting on whether it is good or not.

Even after two years I still pick up the guitar regularly and use it predominantly for slide. I haven't had to set up a thing on the guitar since the day I received it. The action is reasonable for playing chords and scales and just about high enough to get some great slide guitar tones. The neck is really nice and has an old school quality about it. The tuners are very good and don't cause any noticeable tuning problems. The metal work is bright and well chromed but I like to leave these guitars to tarnish/ become road worn as opposed to cleaning them with polish.

I did try modifying the guitar by replacing it with a cone that was spun in the National factory in the USA. Totally pointless as it did nothing to the tone! So buy the guitar, get a decent slide and tune it to Open D or G. That's it.

Fantastic value for the money.

Slip Sliding

02.09.2016
A beautiful resonator guitar, I love it, but tin sound resonates from the cone and sound holes.
My expectation beforehand were not too high after reading some other reviews concerning finish, however my one that was delivered is beautifully finished to an exceptional high standard.

I am like a man in love ...with his first guitar.

The guitar is much smaller than you think from the images online, it approximately the size of a small travel guitar.

Slips about when playing as it's super slick.

Guitar sound better when tuned to open G or E as opposed to standard tuning.

My guitar arrived very poorly package and the box was in bits, however unbelievable as it may sound the guitar was undamaged. Thomann should package products better especially when shipping outside of Germany.

Now folks.... It's bluegrass time so got to go and sing some old time gospel songs. See ye all later
