Sehr gute Gitarre mit mäßiger Werkseinstellung

Johannes099, 07.02.2017
Ich besitze seit Jahren eine grandiose OM von Santa Cruz. Nunmehr wollte ich mir eine wirklich gute Dreadnought anschaffen, die merklich anders klingt als meine OM. Ich habe daher mehrere Dreadnoughts im höheren Preissegment miteinander verglichen. Dabei waren neben der Taylor 710e: Eine D-42 und eine HD-28 jeweils von Martin, eine D Pre War von Santa Cruz und eine DM von Huss&Dalton.

Die D-42 war etwas unbequem zu spielen und hatte kleine Haarrisse im Lack, die von den Ecken des Stegs wegliefen. Laut der Beurteilung eines Gitarrenbauers meines Vertrauens sind die Haarrisse dadurch entstanden, dass man den Steg unfachmännisch auf den Lack gesetzt hatte und hierdurch Spannungen entstanden sind. Diese Gitarre, die ich übrigens nicht bei Thomann gekauft hatte, habe ich daher wieder zurückgegeben.

Die HD-28, die ich bei Thomann bestellt hatte, habe ich ebenfalls wieder zurückgeschickt, weil diese zwar gut verarbeitet war, aber noch unbequemer zu spielen war als die D-42. Sie hatte eine schlechte Werkseinstellung: Die Sattelkerben waren viel zu hoch belassen, ebenso die Halskrümmung zu tief. Beides hätte ich zwar bei meinem Gitarrenbauer nachbearbeiten lassen können, jedoch hat mich der Sound dieser Gitarre auch nicht so ganz überzeugt: Er war mir irgendwie zu stumpf mit zu wenig Obertönen im Nachklang. Das ist aber wahrscheinlich eher Geschmacksache.

Die Santa Cruz und die Huss&Dalton, die ich bei Musikgeschäften in meiner Nähe ausprobieren konnte, waren beide spitzenmäßig verarbeitet, klangen beide super, die Werkseinstellung war spitze und sie waren daher super angenehm zu spielen. Allerdings waren sie mir soundmäßig zu nahe an meiner OM, d.h. sie hatten vor allem nicht so prägnante Bässe, wie ich es mir bei einer Dreadnought vorstelle. Hätte ich aber nicht bereits die OM besessen, so hätte ich sicherlich eine von den beiden genommen.

Nun zur Taylor: Sie ist tadellos verarbeitet und hat prägnante Bässe bei gleichzeitig transparenten Höhen und klingt insgesamt sehr ausgewogen und kräftig - so wie ich es von einer guten Dreadnought erwarte. Allerdings - und daher gibt es einen Stern Abzug - war auch ihre Werkseinstellung nicht Optimal: Die Sattelkerben waren mal wieder viel zu hoch belassen und der Hals hing zu sehr durch. Ich habe daher die Gitarre bei meinem Gitarrenbauer optimal einstellen lassen. Jetzt klingt sie nicht nur super, sondern sie lässt sich jetzt auch super spielen. Was sie von den anderen Gitarren im höheren Preissegment unterscheidet ist, dass der Hals nicht einteilig ist, sondern der Kopf und der Halsfuß offenbar angeschäftet und Sattel und Steg nicht aus Knochen, sondern aus Kunststoff sind. Das kenne ich eher von Instrumenten aus dem niedrigeren Preissegment. Aber was soll?s: Es hat offensichtlich keine Auswirkungen auf den grandiosen Klang.

Noch was zum Thema Werkseinstellung und Saitenlage:

Sowohl in sogenannten Fachzeitschriften, wie auch bei Händlern wird einem ja oft das Gefühl vermittelt, dass die Einstellung eines Instruments Geschmacksache sei und man insbesondere bei Dreadnoughts gerne dicke Saiten aufzieht und eine höhere Saitenlage lässt, damit nichts schnarrt. Denn es sei leichter, später beim Sattel nach den eigenen Bedürfnissen was wegzunehmen. So sei eine flache Saitenlage eher etwas für den zarten Fingerpicker und eine hohe Saitenlage etwas für den harten Strummer und Dreadnoughts seien eher was für Flatpicker und Strummer.

Das mag bedingt zutreffend sein, rechtfertigt jedoch nicht diese miesen Werkseinstellungen, die ich zum Teil erlebt habe:

Ich bin sowohl Fingerpicker wie auch Strummer und lange in beiden Fällen äußerst kräftig in die Saiten. Bei einer Optimal eingestellten Gitarre klirrt da selbst bei etwas flacherer Saitenlage nichts und selbst starke Saiten lassen sich dann mit relativ wenig Kraftaufwand spielen. Ich war wirklich entsetzt, was einem da in diesen Preisklassen zum Teil für "Eierschneider" vorgesetzt werden. Das empfinde ich persönliche als eine Zumutung. Denn es hat ja nicht jeder gleich um die Ecke einen Gitarrenbauer, bei dem er das nachbessern lassen kann, bzw. nicht jeder hat eigenes handwerkliches Geschick und die Werkzeuge, selbst die Gitarre nachzubearbeiten, abgesehen davon, dass man in dieser Preisklasse optimal eingestellte Instrumente sollte erwarten können. Hier ist halt immer etwas mehr Fine Tuning erforderlich, worauf offensichtlich Hersteller mit größeren Stückzahlen an Gitarren im Jahr keine Lust haben.
