Surprisingly good looking and sounding for price

Ivke, 10.07.2018
I bought this guitar for my son's birthday as a starter electric guitar with a bit shorter scale.
I was influenced by good reviews but did not expect much. My thinking was: On one hand the risk of buying this fairly cheap guitar is not big deal if it isn't too good. On the other hand if it turns out to be good, I could have a nice addition to my small collection.
Guitar was received a couple of days after ordering with really good communication/updates on progress of purchase.
The outer box was menacingly squashed at the top, but the guitar was completely intact.
At first sight I was taken aback by it's good looks , "metalic" red colour, beautiful scratch-plate and finish without a blemish. Further detailed inspection did not reveal any aesthetic problems!
Intonation and tuning were very close to being right, straight out of the box.
Action is a bit high. But it is adjustable.
Very nice neck and fretboard. Neck may be a little bit thin for some tastes, but maybe helpful for small people or small hands.
I will have to check if the height of frets is even, when I lower the action (Question for Thomann: is high action setup there to disguise fretwork quality?)
I plugged it into Roland Cube 20 and was surprised by how nice the sound was. I would describe it as gritty but meaty.
How a guitar sounds to you or me is a question of personal taste and choice. I like a Strat type sound and suspected that this single coil guitar will be trying to mimick a Strat at best. But it has a Mustang type flavour of its own.
This guitar is not just a pale copy. It is definitely not overly thin and plucky like some cheap guitars can be.
Far from being just a children's toy, it will become a very decent complement to our family's small collection of guitars with a distinct character.
We use our guitars for learning and playing for fun. This guitar seem solid, good quality, enough to be used for more than that.

If my son decides to give up playing guitar, I will happily adopt this one. If he keeps it, I will have to find some excuse to buy the white one with tremolo as well!

Five stars for such a lovely guitar at such a good price.

Aoutstanding Guitar for the price

16.03.2017
I have been looking for a short 24? scale guitar and found even second hand they are all expensive. So finding this one retailing at around 100 euro is amazing. These days with computer controlled machining with reasonable wood it is hard to make a poor guitar. So I had confidence that I would receive something playable. I was not disappointed the guitar exceeded my expectations. I have small hands and was looking for the reduced length fretboard. The fretboard C shape also helps with the reach. Absolutely in love with the feel of it from the first chord. There is room for improvement and I will be paying 30 euro or so for someone to set it up properly ? the guitar is worth it. At the price I also felt free to do a few mods. The tune-o-matic bridge is high and the neck is angled back off the plane of the guitar to reach it. Basically they have set up the CNC machining for the tremolo version which required that bridge. The bridge pickup is miles off the strings and quiet. (Jaguars have the pickup mounted on top of the pick guard). A quick fix is to cut the ends with the screw holes off the pickup cover and glue back on which gives more height. However I got some 52mm bobbin flats and cut all the ends off the present pickup/cover gluing on the new flat to the bottom. This got the pickups right up to the strings to give a healthy high output punch to that pickup. The pickups are excellent. While I was at it with the pick guard off the guitar (for personal reasons the slide switches irritate me) I chiselled out space and cable runs to put a three way switch in like the Fender Duosonic. No extra wires were required they all reached. I can flick the switch as I pass to go from rhythm to lead and back.
