Il faut savoir attendre...
Marquis de L., 17.07.2021
Après tant de mois d'attente pour recevoir ma guitare, j'ai failli annuler ma commande. Il y a tant d'instruments dans cet esprit sur le marché, non ? Heureusement, j'ai tenu bon. En ouvrant mon colis - comme toujours parfaitement emballé par les amis de chez Thomann -, c'est le choc esthétique : tout est parfait, l'érable flammé, la richesse profonde de la touche en ébène, la finition des frettes. Et même le dos de la caisse est fait d'un bois nuagé de toute beauté, plus spectaculaire que celui de la photo de présentation ! Bon, là, c'est aussi un peu de chance. Trop belle pour être bonne ? Il faut maintenant la brancher. Elle est même parfaitement accordée, étonnant... Et là, c'est la deuxième claque : c'est vivant, réactif, doux et subtil, ou agressif si l'on veut ! Un sustain jusqu'à la fin des temps. Le manche est une merveille, il inspire le jeux. J'ai eu des centaines de guitares entres les mains dans ma vie, mais là, c'est le coup de foudre. Changer les cordes, quelques petits réglages, et c'est le bonheur. Bon, elle est un peu lourde, mais cela doit être un gage de qualité. Et nous n'avons pas encore parlé du prix d'achat : moins de 600 euros, comment est-ce possible ? Si j'étais un fabricant de guitares légendaires avec un grand G, je commencerais à avoir des insomnies et à trembler de peur ! Ou à baisser mes tarifs. Cette Larry Carlton H7 sonne mieux que mes vieilles ES-335, pour une petite fraction du prix. Bravo, Sire, merci, ici vous nous offrez pratiquement une œuvre humanitaire ;)

Required setup, then plays well
Senior player, 20.05.2021
Got this a few days ago after waiting 5,5 months. Action out of the box was not great (nut was cut way too high and two of the frets were a bit high) but after my trusty luthier friend the guitar plays like butter. It's worth mentioning the neck has just the optimal amount of relief for wound strings as well as plain ones.
Other than the aforementioned setup and string change (to Elixir 10 - 46) the guitar plays like butter, in tune and the fretboard edges have really nice roll-off. Fret ends are rounded nicely and action can be set quite low.
Pickups and tuners are better than expected so no need to change them.
Overall, this is a solid semi-hollow for people who don't feel comfortable paying 3,3k (Euros) for G-brand.

Ich hatte früher eine 335 TDC, war damals nicht zufrieden. Bin jetzt aber von der H7 CS sehr über die Qualität überrascht, hätte es nicht vermutet! Ich werde mir keine Gibson 335 mehr zulegen, diese Gitarre reicht mir völlig! Die Verarbeitung und Bespielbarkeit, ist gut. Ich bin gespannt ob Sire die Qualität auf Dauer halten kann.

Incredible for the price
tmeldgaard, 04.06.2021
After 5 months of waiting it was a pleasure to receive the H7. Strangely the neck pickup had popped out of the cavity but I managed to get it back without any issues.
The stringing was quite bulky and dirty so I quickly changed the strings. Frets needed a clean too. At that time I noticed that the fretboard seemed to have had additional color added. Fingers get a fair amount of black on them after a few minutes of playing. I guess the quality of the ebony is not that good (makes you wonder if its actually ebony). But after a good clean it got better. Bindings had sprinkles of black color too - not easy to remove.
The nut was VERY high and open chords were very much out of tune. But easily fixed as well. So now it plays beautifully with a lovely 335 sound.
I have to get used to the very narrow nut (40mm). Not a problem when you move away from the nut but I have to be careful when playing open chords.
All in all a great buy - but you have to give it a good setup. Don't expect it to be plug & play out of the box
