Good B sse, Top playability
Optics: In my opinion, the guitar looks great, the massive cedar top is brighter than usual cedar blankets, which benefits the overall optics. The rosette fits very well. The back and sides are laminated rosewood, which has a very fine and coarse grain. The walkway is also very appealing.
Sound: Out of the Box it is noticeable that the Höfner HZ27 has very nice basses. This is also true of the Höfner strings. If you think that these are too dominant in relation to the treble, you can use other strings. The bass still remains quite present, while picking you quickly get used to it and balances the sound according to its desire with the impact strength. This gives you a very nice sound. It is not suitable for strumming, but it is not very popular with classic guitars. The sound is quite "clear" overall, while my old Carmencita 503 guitar sounds rather faded and warmer, which makes this better in the strumming, but can not compete in the picking again.
Processing: I have heard a lot about the great processing of Höfner. Unfortunately, the saddle on one side is a bit ugly, but so small and unobtrusive that I do not see it as a back ground. The chopsticks are well worked in and nothing stands off. Nevertheless trigger for the saddle and also an irregular transition from the lacquer at the handle / neck.
Mechanics: Here I do not know enough good enough to judge the bass strings slightly at times. Can also lie at the saddle.
Playability: Strings are good for classical guitars, can be lowered as required. The neck is very thin which makes the grasping very pleasant.
Conclusion: A nice instrument, which should be used as a precaution for picking and guarantees good playability.
