Best high-mid spec guitar out there for left handed players.

Alexander1931, 22.12.2014
Besides the lack of a floating tremolo for whammy bar antics, this is one of the best high-mid spec left handed guitars out there if yiou don't have the cash for a may ones.

The black-and-white beauty with the deep voice for left-handers

Hifish, 08.02.2015
Great guitar, especially the look it had done to me: the black-matte beauty with the deep voice I had as a left-hander necessarily ;-)

The factory set-up is fine, you could certainly optimize something here and there.
But the guitar came completely out of tune with me, which should not be too big a problem ;-)

The throughout in black matt lacquered neck not only looks super cute, but can be played very pleasant and also leaves no annoying, unsightly fingerprints.
I can not say whether this nice effect will be preserved even after very frequent recordings, since I only tested the guitar for a relatively short time.

Especially the relatively high active EMG 81 humbucker on the bridge is the absolute dream for all Parkway Drive etc. Fans ...: absolutely fat and brutal.
I hardly tested the EMG 707 humbucker on the neck position because I prefer the bridge position ... but it is certain that the 3-way combination provides more sound variations.

Who wants a permanent drop A mood à la grain, should replace the deepest string by a stronger ... otherwise everything is still still playable but already very "wobbly" and undefined.
If you play "classical" on HEADGHE tuning, the mounted D'Addario XL strings are completely OK.

On the subject of "mood change" is to say that due to the (intentional!) Missing tremolo / vibrato system, the moods as the underpants "on the fly" change.
THE huge advantage over floating tremolo systems, which you have to adjust awkward at every change of mood.
The built-in Grover tuning mechanics do the rest and keep the guitar always perfectly tuned ... an absolute dream for anyone or anyone who likes to experiment with different moods!

When playing on the high strings, the Volumepotti, positioned a bit too close to the Brigehumbucker, can already disturb you: the ball of your hand touches the knob ...

It is also a pity that the price difference to the right-handed model is more than 200 EUR higher; Unfortunately, left-handers usually pay more and more ...

... Then at this price, however, a matching ESP hard-case case or at least a Gigbag would be desirable.
(little wink-with-the-fence-note to Thomann ;-)


CONCLUSION:
Anyone looking for an absolute uncompromising heavy-killing board of modern Metal / Hardcore / Djent guitar and all that for left-handers will definitely be happy with it.

Unfortunately for me personally the conversion from 6 to 7 strings was more unusual than initially thought ...
However, this is a purely subjective statement, which should prevent anyone from buying.

I can say: This guitar is "highly recommended" according to the circumstances!
