A Good quality guitar.

David D. 874, 25.01.2016
I received the guitar today. I seen only one review so I wasn't sure but the spec was good so I gave it a chance. First impression is very good. The sound rings out. It's a very resonant guitar. The notes really chime.

The wood on the top is not coloured in any way. It will take time for the light to bring out its real colour at the moment it's a little pale. I know time will darken it and I'm sure it will be vibrant. I can see it's a nice piece of wood. The sides and back are good quality. It's obvious it's solid wood.

The neck has a satin finish which I like its a nice modern c shape. The action was as good as any guitar I have seen from new. I only lowered it a tiny amount for it to be perfect for me.

On another point I noted that the binding is really nice. Another review said it only has a few red flecks. Mine has a really nice tortoise pattern.

The inside shows a high level of attention to detail. No glue residue or spills. If I have any complaint it's a small one. The label inside the sound hole could be nicer. It's too plain and looks like it was printed on a home PC.

Thomann Western Guitar Case ABS Fits perfectly.

Looks like I had the first X-mas turkey..

25.09.2016
After reading all the raving reviews about this guitar and knowing that it is an all solid body my expectations were quite high.

The guitar arrived in 4 days, all great on Thomann?s side.

Appearance:
The finish is beautiful, the guitar looks very tame in the photos but up close it?s very arrtactive. I found no blemishes at all, perfect condition.

Set-up:
Action was well set up and guitar is relatively comfortable t play considering the wider neck of 45mm.
However!! I immediately noticed a buzzing on the upper strings, D, A, E! It appears that cetrain notes - specifically the Es cause a resonance and buzzing within the guitar. I brought it to a lutier who adjusted the action and played around a bit but it did not fix this problem.

Unfortunately, as is the guitar is unplayable and I will send it back to THomann.

Sound:
Considering it is a full body and using the daddario exp16 I must say I am disappointed especially on the bass side.
The highs have great sustain, if you play a slow solo it almost seems like you are using a reverb pedal on them.
However, the bass strings sound very flat and are lacking the body I wanted.
Admittedly I haven?t changed the strings, as I did not want to make that investment considering I will send the guitar back, but still I feel like they might not be the problem...

Hardware:
I have not plugged in the guitar, so I cannot opine on that, but I am not a fan of this tuner. It does not seem all that accurate and I far prefer the tuner on a guitar such as the Epiphone ej200ce.

All in all, I genuinely hope this was merely bad luck as I expected a higher quality and good setup on HB?s part.
