Awesome guitar
João Palmeira, 16.03.2019
I was a bit unsatisfied with the diy kit that I bought but customer care refunded me and as I'm practicing classical guitar I bought this one to give a second try at Thomman.

The guitar is awesome and may be considered an hybrid between a classical and a folk guitar.

The sound is a bit different but quite awesome and balanced. The basses are warm and the mids and trebles are quite clean.
The output is quite high and loud :)

I'm having an issue with the tunning, as since I got the guitar it de-tunes 2 to 3 half tones every single day, however I've already sent an email to Thomman questioning if it's a string issue or from the tuners... will figure it out later...

Nevertheless an awesome guitar with great action, playability and sound!

Eine der besten Gitarren zu diesem Preis
02.06.2016
War meine erste Gitarre.
Pro
+ 48 mm Griffbrett bieten einen guten Einstieg ins Gitarrenspiel, da die Saiten nicht so eng wie bei einer Westerngitarre liegen aber auch nicht so weit auseinander, wie bei den meisten anderen Klassikgitarren und ist daher gut für Strumming und Fingerpicking geeignet
+ sehr stimmstabil, muss sie nur alle 2 Wochen stimmen obwohl ich fast täglich spiele
+ die mattschwarze Lackierung mit den schwarzen Mechaniken sieht echt fett aus
+ Gute Ausstattung (massive Fichtendecke, saubere Mechaniken, Palisandergriffbrett sofern die Angaben stimmen)

Contra
- Ab dem 9. Bund klingt sie, vor allem auf den Diskantsaiten, sehr dünn, klingt schnell aus und ab dem 12. Bund schnarrt sie teilweise nur noch (als Anfänger spielt man aber eh selten höher als im 3. Bund von daher hast mich anfangs nicht gestört, bitte wieder im Preisleistungskontext sehen.)
- generell ist der Sound nicht schlecht aber wer ein Klangwunder erwartet ist hier falsch (wie bei fast allen Gitarren unter 300 Euro)

Ich würde Sie als Einsteigermodell uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
