Can't put this guitar down

27.11.2014
Just got this guitar today and I have to say I have played it for the last four hours and have just put it down. The build quality is superb, it looks fantastic,the sound is amazing as well, wether you are strumming hard and fast or soft and gentle its an extremely responsive guitar. Plugged in its just as good, I haven't found anything bad to say about it yet, straight out of the box the action is great too.I was going to buy a less pricey twelve string for my first dabble into twelve string guitar, I am glad I decided to spend the extra on this one.
I got a cracking deal from the guys at thomann too with the usual excellent service, thank you so much thomann.

A really usable 12 string

Eric286, 20.03.2015
This is the 3rd 12 string I've owned, and it is spot on. Its a very attractive guitar, with a strong gloss finish. The construction appears solid, along with its feel. The neck is very confortable, chunkier than a 6 string obviously, but very easy to play due to the very low action, right up to the cutaway. Its got like a "C" profile neck with any shoulders so really usable. Tuners are accurate and stable. The sound is exactly what I expected, bright top end but a good width to the sound. The onboard tuner is brilliant and gives a very responsive but steady reading ....I love this feature on a 12 string - to check the tuning at any opportunity on the fly. The plugged in sound is great with good EQ controllablity. I haven't gigged yet with the guitar but I'm sure the added notch filter wil come into its own at stage volumes. What more can I say, the price is unbeatable and it feels a much more expensive guitar (which it really is at RRP but thanks to Thomann it is a true bargain) . I bought the Thomann padded Jumbo gig bag to transport it and it fits perfectly and gives adequate protection (but not for throwing into Air Freight or back of a Transit!!). Also bought the Shubb C3 capo, which works perfectly, I detune the guitar to DGCFAD to ease neck tension so I use the capo on the 2nd frequently, ...works great, sounds great ....well recommended!
