Lots of money for little money

Frank721, 24.08.2010
The processing:
The processing of the guitar is good. The lacquer was applied without blemish, and is not as thick, as with the Epi's or Artcore's. Thus, the guitar vibrates cleanly and all sounds are alike. The tuning mechanisms work fine, clean and without hooking.
Since with my HCT the binding of the FLöcher was not carried out completely clean, the processing "only" is good.

The sound:
The instrument sounds acoustically balanced. In addition, the basses are clear and not as spongy (or pappy), as in comparable guitars. Reinforced (Mesa Lonestar Classic) the tone is warm and round with a nice portion of Billianz. The tone pot reacts quite fine. Depending on the playing technique, you get warm, bellied or crisp sounds.
Basically, the guitar is characterized by the natural vibration as "loud". This could be on the 17-inch body.

Conclusion: A really great jazzbox at a small price. BEAUTIFUL ANTESTES !!!

Ouch

Christophe630, 16.08.2011
Ok this guitar has a very nice finish, everything is well in place, no concern for vibration, and the sound is simply excellent, very balanced, both acoustic and amplified (very faithful to the acoustic sound of elsewhere) A big, huge problem of angle of the handle. I straightened it because it was very, much too curved (to partially mask the problem) leaving between .3mm and .5mm of "clearance" as it should be, and no matter how high I set the bridge, Have the strings buzzing everywhere, even with an ultra high action!

A disaster I will have to return it, too bad because the sound is really good, and it is very beautiful.
