A Shock to the system!

ISBM, 18.08.2016
No, not because of the low rumble of this beast through my Blackstar, but because you spend you whole time as a guitar playing being told "you get what you pay for" and then someone goes and makes this!

As the previous reviews seem to also confirm, this was bought to trial being a 7 string owner without hurting the bank balance and, to mimic the others, I am very impressed.

Build Quality & Hardware
No complaints. It feels sturdy with a chunky body (helps to conterweight that wide neck) and very good recessed neck joint. The neck is thin for a 7 string (I've played others but never owned one) and unfinished. Personally I'd rather have an oiled or painted finish, but this is preference and will be solved when I have space on my workbench. Pickups? Not great. By no means the worst for a guitar of this cost, but they lose clarity at the low end and lack the depth of better made counterparts. Sound great clean and higher up though! Controls are noiseless and free moving.

The real shocker:
This beauty is set up like a pro! The action was spot on, the intonation near-perfect and straight out the box (in the UK) she played like a dream. The biggest issue I find with cheap guitars is they need a decent set up to be playable but this is an exception. Thomann have put their name to this and will not be losing any reputation with such a great starter priced guitar.

Now, where's that black paint and Seymour Duncan Nazgul?...

Excellent value-for-money

12.03.2014
I bought this guitar to get a feel for seven-string guitars and my first impression has been very positive. Considering the price I didn't expect too much but I don't like to waste my money on garbage either so I did have certain expectations on assembly and tuning stability. Now that the guitar has arrived I am happy to discover that it exceeds my expectations. Intonation and tuning stability is good. The neck-joint is flawless and string height is very good. The neck was comfortable and overall it feels like an easy-to-play instrument. There were som minor cosmetic imperfections on the paint job. The pickups aren't excellent but work well. I consider this guitar excellent value-for-money.
