Allround guitars for the ambitious beginner

Stefan2207, 30.12.2013
The Höfner SE 1 I own since 2009, at that time still around 230 euros to have. It served as a beginner's instrument and is still in use today. So as a beginner, I do not look anymore now and still play the guitar.

From the beginning I was delighted by the swinging spruce top, which provides a balanced sound with a nice overtone spectrum and long lasting tones. In comparison, Yamaha, ProArte, Ibanez, and others were similar to the guitars. A Thomann salesman stood by me as a layman and eased the guitars in each case. At that time, the courtiers were able to get through a clear distance.

The guitar is absolutely bundrein, the frets neatly processed. As a fan of natural wood, I also appreciate the matte finish of ceiling, frames and floor. With medium strings from Daddario I find the sound most beautiful, these holds (except for the G-string) their brilliance also quite long.

The classical guitar or folk-picking is played on the guitar. Whether and to what extent the sound of the spruce top has improved over the years, I can not say because of the increasing playing practice.

After five years of persistent play, the spruce top is darkened (very nice warm fir cone) and the mechanic tooth rims are somewhat worn (but still voiceless). Otherwise you can hardly see the guitar's use and age, which would not be possible with a high-gloss guitar.

If you are a beginner, have enough money (currently 300 Euro), is sure to get along with the beginner's instrument for a long time, this guitar is a clear recommendation.

Loyal companion for 4 1/2 years

Jalal, 10.04.2017
The workmanship is impeccable. The sound is loud and penetrating - not great in quality terms, but honestly, there is nothing better in the budget! The mechanics are ok, but not great. Unfortunately, the screws to attach the mechanics, a little too short and at some point hung a mechanism on one side. With somewhat longer screws, the problem has resolved. The strings did not bother me at first, but when I started flamenco, I noticed over time that she was a bit too high for that. But since this is a classical guitar, the strings are okay.

Over time, the sound of the massive spruce top has developed, now it sounds rounder, more open and a bit more overtone-rich.

Over the years, I've messed her up by training in flamenco. After a repair and three modifications (bridge insert deeper, twelve-hole hole, Golpeador), the guitar is now almost suitable for flamenco!

Now I have a flamenco guitar specially tuned to me built, because this guitar is dimensioned a little smaller by the body and the neck width. Nevertheless, I will forever be grateful to my faithful companion for my beginnings.

For every beginner a clear purchase recommendation!
