Excellent value and features, with a minor quality issue
Tekrytor, 12.07.2020
Pros:
I bought this guitar to fill a niche in my collection. I wanted a nylon string for jazzy and prog tones. It fills all my expectations well and the build quality is excellent, especially considering the price.
The sound is quite acceptable, also price considered.

Features are excellent, with the built in tuner, pickup, and preamp/EQ. All work flawlessly and make it nice to use. There was even a battery installed! The finish is fine and there are no defects or blems, satin not glossy, which I prefer

Cons:
The bridge height is set rather high, making the action about 1/4" at the 12th fret, making it difficult to play. For a beginner, this would be a problem. I'm going to file both the saddle and its block lower and get on with life. There is ample material there to do so. It's still well worth the money to me and once set, seems like it will be a fine addition to my selection of instruments. I'll update this review once I finish that effort.

Bottom line:
For the money, it's an excellent value, even with the high action. If the action were controlled better at the factory, I would have given quality 5 stars instead of 4, it's that good IMO. If it were not a fixable problem, I would have taken off more stars. If you had to pay for such a repair, it would easily cost between $50 and $100 at a shop. I would consider the possibility that it might need a little work on arrival when purchasing, so you're not disappointed if it's not perfect.

Great for the price.
Mark KC, 15.01.2021
I used to play classical guitar before I got into metal.

With lockdown appraoching, I bought this as the cheapest classical I could find that had decent ratings. I figured I probably wouldn't get back into it, but that if I did, then I could buy a much higher-end classical later in the year, and donate this cheap one to a local school or something.

After nearly a year, I really love this guitar and don't plan to replace it anytime soon. Action could be lower, but it's not insanely high.

I'm just learning the final measures of Recuerdos de la Alhambra on this guitar now and am really happy with it.

Very nice guitar
Buizerd, 03.07.2020
Very nice guitar. Nice mat finish.
Easy to play. Light and thin body.
Sound is good, plugged and unplugged.
One thing to improve is to bind the wires together, so they do not touch the inside of the body. Especcialy when playing the low string this can cause an annoying rattle.

Konzertgitarre
Thomas Ra, 18.08.2020
Da hier nur so wenige Bewertungen zu finden waren, dachte ich, ich schreibe mal eine, die nicht so klingt als hätte sie jemand aus einem bestimmten Anlass geschrieben. Nun, kurz zu mir, ich bin Tontechniker und Musiker und habe mir diese Gitarre bestellt, da ich mal wieder Lust auf neue Gigs hab. Zunächst einmal kann ich sagen, dass die Gitarre für diesen Preis hält was sie verspricht. Die Verabeitung ist super, tatsächlich ist meine Gypsy bundrein, die Verarbeitung ist gut, und der Tonabnehmer klingt angenehm. Also im Grunde eine super Klampfe für den Preis. Nun aber auch die negativen Seiten. Meine erste Gypsy hatte einen Fehler im Pick-Up, was dazu führte, dass die E-Saite nicht zu hören war, außerdem konnte ich ein Erdungsbrummen hören. Kurz durchgecheckt, lag es bei ca. -36db, also bei ruhigen Stücken deutlich hörbar. Daher habe ich die Gitarre durch Thomann ausgetauscht bekommen. Hier übrigens ein super Service! Eine sehr freundliche Frau am Telefon hatte vollstes Verständnis und schickte mir eine zweite Gitarre zu, obwohl ich die andere noch nicht zurückgeschickt habe, da ein Gig bevorstand. Also TOP! Nun, die zweite Gitarre war ähnlich verabeitet, dieses Mal war das Holz aber ein Anderes, allerdings alles andere so wie bei de Ersten. Bei der zweiten Gypsy konnte man die E-Saite nun gut hören. Das Erdungsbrummen war allerdings immer noch da, dieses Mal allerdings bei ca. -45db. Mit einer DI konnte ich es auf -58db drosseln. Ganz weg ist es aber nur, wenn man die Erdung selbst herstellt, heisst, entweder mit dem Fuß auf die DI ;) oder man bastelt sich eine Erdung, da gibt es einige Videos auf Youtube zu dem Thema. Insgesamt behalte ich aber die Zweite und kümmere mich um das Erdungsproblem, was wie gesagt aber auch nur zu hören ist, wenn man auch sehr leise spielt. Für jemanden der sich der Aufgabe der Erdung gewachsen sieht, ist diese Gitarre jeden Cent Wert, jedoch sollte beim Ankommen der Gitarre gleich überprüft werden, ob auch jede Saite zu hören ist.

Für mich war die Bundreinheit wichtig. Natürlich hat sie nicht einen übermäßigen Bassbereich, da sie sehr schmal ist. Dennoch klingt sie für den Preis super! Und nein es ist keine 1000 € Gitarre, aber das sollte klar sein. Persönlich finde ich den Obertonbereich etwas leise und undifferenziert, aber auf der anderen Seite klingt sie schön ehrlich, erdig und angenehm. Also gute Gitarre und empfehlenswert, mit ein paar Tweaks. Und natürlich das Durchchecken bei Ankunft nicht vergessen :)
