Recommended guitar!

Bernie413, 08.09.2018
My copy was almost perfect - optics, paint, processing, setting. I like the new logo a lot better.
The string position was expected to be a little too high, which can be remedied quickly by sanding the bridge pad. Dressing the frets exemplary - no buzz even at low strings, no sharp ends of the fret. The Ovangkolholz - as a rosewood alternative - is a bit rough, some rough areas on the fingerboard - not so bad, can be fixed. The jetty looks much better with a little oil.
The factory strings were a bit blunt for me - with Elixir strings a completely different world, good, full, brilliant sound, and the massive spruce top plays only one, there is still potential in it.
Only - the Tortoise pickguard looks modest, but since an official costs up to 50¤, you can hardly chalk the Harley Benton.
The amplified sound is very useful as part of the standard piezo pickup. The tuner reacts a bit sluggishly, but with that you can work after a bit of getting used to it.
The neck plays incredibly comfortable, despite - or because of - the flawless glossy finish.
Did I mention that the guitar looks sensationally good? How does thomann do that? It's all fun!
Conclusion - a J45 at the price - unbeatable!

Low Budget J45

agreeb, 10.04.2018
First of all, that part is awesome !!
It is unbelievable what you get today for a few euros for an equivalent.
Would that have been so in my youth.
My copy was really very satisfying in all respects.
I have no points of criticism in the processing and certainly not in relation to the sound.
Frets top, paint super, only the fingerboard I have a little oiled.
I've been looking for a J 45 replica for a while now and have
in the usual price ranges 450 to 600 euros a lot
tried and I have to say, this one is in no way inferior to the other candidates.
I even tested a G. J 35 some time ago, well, what can I say, the big name alone does not do it either.

Well, here is almost anesthetic duty !!
