good luck hearing the entire range

A Djentleman, 17.11.2018
For the price, really, I couldn't ask for very much more. Thing plays better than I was expecting, tuning stability is deceptively good, pots are quiet, neck has zero dead spots, etc.
Basically, the thing is great EXCEPT for the fact that, for whatever reason, the pickups frequency response is pretty much zero in the high end. Mushy, muddy tone down low on the 7th and 8th string (again, better than i was expecting for under 200$), and you cant even hear the 1st string about 80% of the time you're playing it. No clue if i got bad pickups or not, but damn did that kill my enjoyment of it. Could always drop new pickups in it, but this thing being routed slanted and for soapbars leaves me very little choice in what i can put in there, all of which being more expensive than the rest of the guitar.
In short, it's good for the price, and for once, a HB sounds like its price.

Not really fun at all.

Danny N., 29.01.2018
This is my first 8 string multiscale guitar and second HB from thomann. I decided to buy it before I get something more 'serious'. Aaaand I am disappointed.
- Active pickups are not bad att all, but comparing to my passive Merlins they sounds a bit crappier. But I guess it's normal thing.
- There were no scratches. But. I can feel that frets are going to have sharp edges, also some of them are damaged and dirty. D'addario strings - dead and rusty. And the saddle - oh gods, what a hell. Edges of it cut my hands (so pointy!) and they're not in the straight line with overall strings level. More - the thickest string at 1st fret is almost at the edge of the fretboard.

I need to invest on it, send it to the luthier, swap pickups and it will be playable.
