Wow, what a guitar
Stefaan V1 07.12.2021
I bought this guitar in cyberweek for 395 euro and what a bargain it turns out to be. I already have an '78 Aria Pro II PE-800 (Les Paul style) and this guitar is the complete opposite with all the extras I wanted (nice tremolo, locking tuners without string tree, roasted maple neck with rounded edges, HSS with coil split in 4th position, abalone dots, nice nut).
Playing is great right out of the box, I just lowered the bridge a bit, just because I could.

From the pictures, I thought I'd like the surf green more, but the antique white was on offer and I like it a lot, also thanks to the pearl pickguard and I think it's actually a bit more timeless.

One thing that annoys me, is that next to the lovely cutout that makes the heel joint less blocky, there is an extra cutout on the back that looks like more access to the high notes, but I fail to see how anyone could have his hand over there, while a front-cutout like on a prs would make more sense.

I only gave 4 stars for sound because I'm sure more expensive guitars may have better or more strat sound, but the sound is good enough for me.


Total value for money

I am a daily playing amateur guitarist and I’m lucky enough to own several guitars of various makes.

Living in Spain it is difficult to find decent guitar outlets locally hence why this was purchased on-line, not my preferred choice.

The guitar arrived quickly and initial impressions were very good, minimal tuning and ready to go. The box didn't have the tremolo arm inside, Thomann dispatched one very quickly - appreciated.
I've had the guitar approximately four months now and it is usually played daily. Overall it is excellent, easy playing action, stays in tune very well. For a guitar at this price point the finish is very good, the frets are well rounded on the edges. Both the volume and tone knobs are smooth in operation. Being picky the edges of the fretboard itself had some very minor marks but really not a problem.
Really pleased with this purchase.


One of the best Guitars I've ever had
The String Wizzard 27.01.2022
This thing is amazing. It sounds incredibly good, it feels extremely comfortable, it looks great... The overall quality is very good. I usually always change the pickups of the guitars I buy and tweak them here and there but not with this one. Everything about this guitar is exactly as it should be.
I took 2 stars from quality because in my particular case, the pickup switch has a bit of a contact issue. It works mostly fine but every now and then the tone of the pickups goes completely dull and I have to tap and move the switch around until it goes back to normal. Nothing that cannot be repaired at home within an hour, but it's still there and it's annoying.

Overall tho, as I said, one of the best guitars I've ever played.


Poor lacquering on back of neck
mrkxe 11.12.2021
Be aware in my case the lacquer on the back of the neck rubs off un-evenly due to play wear. I returned the item to THOMANN and they claimed I caused this myself. Very disappointed and completely untrue.
