Superb quality resonator
RichTea, 14.06.2013
I looked, I read the reviews online, thought about it, thought about it some more, and finally bought it. For so little money I could hardly be disappointed. I just had no idea I could be that impressed! This is a great sounding resonator guitar. Unplugged it gives that superb metallic twang reminiscent of those old Dire Straits albums. Out of the box it was superbly set up with a great action. I may tweak the action down the line for some of the slightly more interesting tunings. Dropping the low E to a D did make it buzz a little but that's easily sorted out. Plugged in the sound is a little murky, but tweak the EQ of the desk and it's not half bad. Playing this live a few weeks back everyone was so bowled over with the look and the way the chrome-wear reflected the light that I don't think anyone noticed the sound. But that's me being nitpicking when really it exceeds all expectations. Honestly I couldn't have been more pleased if I'd been given this for free. It's inspired new songwriting, and made older songs that needed that little somethin' somethin' shine. Seriously at this price, and with this good build quality, what's to think about? I would highly recommend this model. Yes, you could spend more and get a high end model but what if your resonator phase is just a passing fad and it ends up sitting in a corner unused? Stop reading this review and buy it now.

worth it 100%
AK_doomGR, 10.01.2021
a descend instrument, nice to the eye the hand and the ears.

Pros:
Solid-heavy build, great sound, very good sustain.
The pick-up is more than what you expect. when plugged in just turn the volume up and you'll be surprised. Also in dirty and high gain stands all the way up without loosing frequencies.

cons:
After one and a half year i don't have something actually to say.
Maybe in color there are some minor fades, but i guess it depend on the use.

Unbeatable at this price!
Arthur H., 28.12.2014
I've had this guitar for a couple of weeks and just love it. At the £138 I paid for it it's an absolute steal. The quality of the hardware is amazing for a £138 instrument and the guitar is very well built with a good durable matt black finish. The frets are well finished and the action is just under 3mm at the 12th fret which is just about perfect for slide playing yet is still low enough to play chords and notes with your fingers. Tonally the sound is loud and ringing with no buzzing or rattles of the kind often heard on cheap resonators. Delivery to the UK took 5 days which included a weekend in the run up to Xmas which is fantastic. If you're looking for a quality inexpensive resonator give this one a try.

Harley Benton Resonator
Simon C, 07.02.2018
I am very pleased with this purchase from Thomann. This guitar sounds good, looks great and is lots of fun to play.

In more detail........ It does not have quite the "ring" (for want of a better word) of a steel bodied resonator, It lacks that "National" sound which I naively thought it might have. So obviously the body material has a large influence on the sound not just the mechanics of the resonator. But that said the guitar does have a great tone, punchy, bright, bluesy and loud - plenty of character.

When the guitar arrived I struggled with the 12's fitted and if dropped to an open G tuning some unpleasant buzzing was produced by the resonator. Fitting a new set of 11's transformed it (for me) making the instrument instantly much more playable and any strange noises cleared up. Plugged in, it's great fun. Using a Katana with various "effects" applied is entertaining, I think the pick-up is pretty good. Though the natural volume of the guitar is such that the amp has to be wound up a bit or I play through headphones to feel/hear a blend of the two.

Build quality and finish - Solid construction and nicely made. It feels and looks great. I like the satin black finish, very smart with the chrome and cream edge detailing. The fretboard and neck are nice, smooth and enjoyable to play. I would have given 4 and half stars for quality if that were possible, needing to mark it down slightly, there are a couple of very minor imperfections in the finish and the frets are slightly sharp, but it's pretty good.

So in summary. Great fun. Great value. I am very happy with this addition to the collection. I anticipate many more hours of fun with this guitar - Thanks Thomann.
