Awesome guitar

21.12.2016
Ordered this guitar more than a week ago on a Monday and it arrived a week later on a Monday. Not bad for an international shipment.

As with all Thomann products the packaging is extremely great. The guitar was wrapped in some soft wrapping which was in a box that was in another bigger box filled with giant bubble wrap. This packaging could survive a blast from a tank!

The guitar has some minor flaws which are probably expected for this price but nothing serious.

The finish is excellent. But the product pictures shown aren't very accurate. It's much lighter in color than in pictures. The red isn't as deep as shown and the brownish middle is actually quite yellow, almost like a lemon drop.
Despite that it looks great (maybe even better in my opinion)

The neck is extremely comfortable to play.
The rounded joint where the neck meets the body makes playing high notes very, very, very comfortable.
The binding is a bit rounded so there aren't any edges that you can feel.
No fret buzz, although the frets could use a bit of additional sanding since not all of them are smooth.

The tuners are very smooth and hold the tuning very well.

The nut is plastic. Actually the nut probably is the worst part of the guitar. It's ok but the grooves for the strings are made a bit sloppily..

The description doesn't say this but this guitar comes with coil splitting push-pull pots. Awesome!
Tip: dont try to forcefully remove the knobs. I wanted to remove them to get rid of the stickers more easily that were underneath and I broke my bridge volume pot... 10 minutes after opening the box...
Seriously those knobs are very hard to remove, be careful!

Every plastic part on the guitar (knobs, cavity plates) feels very cheapish, especially the pick guard.

Finally the pickups. These Wilkinson pickups are quite decent. They actually sound good. I like them.

Cons:
Not fully polished/sanded frets
Cheap plastics
Knobs!
Inlay on the headstock isn't symmetrically aligned (but who cares)

Pros:
Easy access to high frets
Coil splitting
Looks fantastic

Final words:
It plays, sounds and feels like a Les Paul. No need to say anything else.

just amazing

01.03.2016
This is my number 11 in my collection.I say this so you know I have something to compare with. Having made a number of guitars also I am pleased to recommend this to anyone.
The packing from Thomann was very good and the guitar arrived with the package unblemished.
Straight from the box it is evident that this is an instrument of very high quality.
The stain and lacquer in unblemished giving a very pleasing effect.
The action from the box us low but a quarter turn in the truss rod made it very low without any fret buzz over the whole fret board.
The intonation at the 12th fret was soot on.
The finish to the 3part set neck was excellent with no fret burrs and a very smooth action against the fret edges.
The electrics are fine with good range as and the only minor fault wax with the rhythm treble switch which needed sims use to get perfect contact.
The strings come with a treatment which leaves your fingers black for a while until the strings are cleaned.
All in all this guitar compares with any at 3 or 4 times the pruvce and j would easily recommend it to anyone.
