Bags of Character
Flynnz, 11.06.2021
I play bass - and have forgotten how to play guitar. I just needed something that I could strum chords on while I thought about what bass to play over them. To that end, this guitar is far better than I needed, and, with a 32+cm neck radius, not ideal. I was really looking for something with a tighter radius so I could bar with my arthritic third finger but still play the E string cleanly. However, as everyone's a shredder these days, and the Thomann range offers little under 30cm, and based on many reviews, I decided on the TE90. I was not disappointed. the neck is beautiful - looks like a dirty road-worn maple (vintaged without the pretentiousness). The pups sound great and the knobs are true and responsive. the chambered body make it really light (I think, like I said I play bass and all guitars feel like they are made for princesses). The body paint (I have the red and black) has bags of character, and I love the bridge (can't understand why anyone wouldn't). It is very smooth and low profile which makes it very comfortable under the right hand - and creates an overwhelming urge to palm-mute. The only disappointment for me is the reverse headstock. It appealed because I thought it had character, but in truth it is a pain. Turning such closely packed tuners from below is not ergonomic; if you manage to alight on the correct tuner, it is so easy to knock its neighbour out of tune - style over substance. I had considered getting a leftie for my daughter, and swapping the necks, but I couldn't justify that. If anyone is deciding to swap out the tuners, remember you will need a set suitable for a leftie tele.
Just after I placed the order for this, my brother bought me a Squire Toronado, out of the blue. It too is a beautiful object, with slightly better knobs and a tighter fret radius, but honestly, I prefer playing the TE90.

Hübsche Schwester des Originals
advocaster, 02.06.2021
Fazit - kaufen, spielen und zufrieden sein.

Ich fand die Telecastervariaton von HB irgendwie süß. Die Form ist unschlagbar und diese zeigt eine spannende Lackierung mit einem mir unbekannten Holz. Schnell war sie geliefert. Ich bin begeistert.

Sunkai - ein tropische/Hart-) Holz. Optisch ähnlich wie Esche, aber eben nicht bleischwer, herrlich rot/schwarz lackiert. Der Lack ist seidenmatt und fühlt sich gut an. Der Hals ist aus Ahorn, mit Sungkai Griffbrett. Die Kopfplatte reversed. Das sieht sehr geil aus.

Der Korpus ist dreiteilig gefügt, durch die Lackierung fällt das nicht auf, die Bridge ist ein Standardprodukt. Die Bünde sind glatt und fast nicht scharfkantig. Ich kann nicht maulen. Kein Fretjob erforderlich.
Die Mechaniken tun ihren Job und sind stimmstabil.

Auffällig: die Fräsungen sind perfekt gemacht. Eine Augenweide. Alle Deckel sitzen perfekt. Un wenn da ein dreilagiges Schlöagbrett drauf wäre, müsste Fender neidisch werden. Das rüste ich aber selbst nach. Das ist Luxus.

Kommen wir zum Sound. Trocken angespielt - viel Präsens und ein drahtiger Ton mit viel Sustain. Elekrtisch hat Rosswell hier einen sehr guten Job gemacht hat. Genug Spauz haben sie und trotzdem bleibt der Sound transparent und dynamisch. Für Blues erste Sahne. Stones damit zu spielen -eine Freude.

Vermisse ich etwas? Nein, wer eine puristische Gitarre sucht, mit der er auf der Session Aufsehen auslösen möchte, darf gerne zugreifen. Er wird nicht enttäuscht werden. Ich bin begeistert und habe meine orange-grün gestreiften Leggins im Schrank für kommende Sessions gesucht. Kaufen und Spaß haben. ADVOCASTER

A minha primeira guitarra Harley Benton
Velho do Restelo, 21.10.2020
Um modelo baseado na famosa Cabronita e muito bom.
É a minha primeira Harley Benton e que começo fantástico.
Depois de ler tantas criticas negativas aos acabamentos das HB estava receoso, mas quando a recebi todas as duvidas se dissiparam. Perfeito "fit & finish" sem qualquer marca na guitarra e tudo no seu devido sítio.
A côr não é tão brilhante como o das fotos, é baça e gosto muito mais assim.
Pesa à volta de 4kg, o que me agrada.
O acabamento está impecável, a acção e setup vinham no ponto, até a afinação estava quase lá.
A cabeça da guitarra estar ao contrário requer alguma habituação mas acho que lhe fica muito bem.
Prós: Os pickups Filtertron têm um som muito bom e cristalino.
O aspecto e acabamento são de boa categoria. É sólida e de bom peso.
O braço é muito comfortável e suave.
A electrónica tem bom aspecto.
Os botões são bons e sensíveis, especialmente o do volume, um pequeno aumento nota-se bem no som.
Contras: nem é bem um contra e não é dificil de resolver, os carrilhões não são fantásticos, funcionam bem mas é possível que, no futuro, venham a ganhar alguma folga no aperto das cordas.
Fiquei admirado por não trazer qualquer "oferta" das típicas numa guitarra nova: cabo, palhetas ou strap. Nada.
Vale bem o preço e na minha opinião até mais.
No futuro é capaz de levar um Bigsby mas para já estou a desfrutar dela tal como veio e é muito boa.
