Supreme German Engineering & Design

Bedward , 06.06.2018
Tuned down 1/2 step playing Van Halen. Hold its tune like a mutha f$&)(. Solid stable feels great sounds great. Never seen anything like this in the USA. Buy 4 or five for various turnings, locations, backups, The supreme feet of modern manufacturing. This is going to be the iconic staple of the 21st century. Buy now. Buy many, this is the elderado of guitar. Definitely an intermediate to advanced guitar. You need to do your homework to learn to use the Floyd Rose. The neck is phenomenal, so stable so sweet. Can't say enough great things about this axe. Thomann really deserves accolades for this product.

Good copy of the real thing

axewound, 06.05.2016
So after a nice toy to play with wanting a little bit of a chred machine i decided to go with this as i wouldnt be using it that much compared to the other guitars i have.

I am very impressed the pickups are very good indeed, i wouldnt say they are high output but they do scream (what i mean is volume isnt overly loud but the sound is such) and give the high output sound. They also clean up very well with a little roll off of the volume, and if you want a bit of grit leave the volume up and a bit of clean tone and they break up well.

The finish is immaculate as i have come to expect with the Harley bentons i have now had.

The part i was most worried about was the trem, it does seem to do its job and do its job well, im not into huge dive bombs etc but using it for "mild trem use" it returns to tune each time and i've had no problems at all as yet

The only con i have found is that one of the pots is a little scratchy
