As long as the neck is straight I guess it's fine
Muzickero, 25.06.2018
Having played guitars for 20 years now and been doing my own mods and setup I wouldn't suggest anyone playing this directly out of the box.
My intention was to make it a test bed for mods (pickups, electronics, hardware, and stainless steel frets later) and I think it is perfect for that.
Pros
Neck is straight
Tuners are decent - stays in tune 95% of the time which is good for budget guitars like this
Mine was a 3 pc body but the 3rd piece is just below the control plate which makes it difficult to notice so at first glance it looks like a 2 pc body
I thought pickups were okay
Satin neck finish

Cons
Poor build quality - low E string tuner nut was loose and the pole was tilted - crooked screws (string tree, strap button, pickguard) as if it was assembled in 2 minutes
Neck had many charcoal like stains and several dents and scratches although shallow, you don't expect this from a new guitar
Cheap electronics (pots, switch, wires)
Finish on body is so thick grains are barely visible
Frets can use a little polishing especially at the ends

Overall, I'm still satisfied because I only wanted a straight neck and an acceptable body and finish and for the price I couldn't really expect more.
I immediately replaced the pots with CTS 205K pots, instealled USA CRL 2 way switch, Switchcraft jack, orange drop cap, treble bleed circuit.
Replaced the nut with a Graphtech Tusq XL 42mm (needs some sanding to fit the narrower slot of the guitar but it was easy)
Replaced the pickups with GFS Overwound Repro Vintage Alnico Tele pickups

The upgrades cost another 100$ and I did a complete setup (neck relief, action (saddles and nut), intonation, polished the fret ends but it's all worth it.

The guitar feels 3 times more than its original price now

Prima für Anfänger
Schnabelkerf, 09.05.2019
Auf Empfehlung meines Lehrers gekauft und bin hochzufrieden.

Als blutigster aller blutigen Anfänger sind meine Ansprüche natürlich recht bescheiden, zum Teil einfach deswegen, weil ich gar nicht weiss was alles möglich ist. Für mich ausschlaggebend für die gute Bewertung war/ist das Folgende:

1.) Verarbeitung scheint mir sehr gut zu sein. Nichts wackelt, klappert, oder scheint locker zu sein. Alles sieht sehr solide aus und fühlt sich auch so an. Die Gitarre braucht nur selten und dann minimal nachgestimmt werden.

2.) Meine Versuche, der Gitarre "Töne" zu entlocken sind momentan eher Missversuche, was aber nur an meinem extrem eingeschränkten Spielvermögen liegt. Mein Lehrer spielt auf dem Ding wie entfesselt, und ich denke dann, die Herren Rossi, May, Clapton oder so vor mir stehen zu haben.

3.) Was mich besonders gefreut hat - dieses Model war mit "zwei bis drei Wochen Wartezeit" ausgeschrieben gewesen, und eine Nachfrage bei Thomann (vor der Bestellung) bestätigte die Wartezeit. Hatte mich dann entschlossen, doch dieses Modell (und nicht eine andere färbe) zu bestellen, und, siehe da, geliefert wurde drei Tage (und nicht Wochen) später. Habe mich sehr gefreut!
