Great instrument with incredible sustain and low processing

Thomas3510, 13.08.2015
After selling my Gibson Les Paul heavy heart (too hard for my spine), I've been looking for a replacement for a long time. For left-handed people not so easy!
The first Verythin unfortunately had a transport damage at the neck. The second came supposedly healed. Connected and - no sound! A loose contact in the jack socket. So I kept the cable with a bit of tension and was overwhelmed.
I have not had a guitar in my hand that lasts so long. Between the 5th and 17th Bunds, all notes have a great sustain and convincing the rest of the bands. I play over a Hughes & Kettner Grandmaster and get the sound of Samba Pa Ti as well as Still got the Blues without any further effects with normal lead setting. Likewise, the guitar delivers without problems sounds of early Beatles and Stones or Clapton's sound at Cream. Even if it is to be even harder, it has qualities. In clean sound, it is slightly thinner than my Paula, but better than Hagstroem Viking, comparable to the Ibanez AS 153 or even a new Gibson Les Paul standard. The workmanship is better than Hagstroem and also the Gibson had light lacquer mallets, Ibanez was surprisingly best processed.
The processing deficiencies are somewhat obliquely sitting cheap Potiknöpfe, a small paint defect at the neck transition to the corpus and inside loose cables, which could be fastened. The dashboard is a bit too thin and gives way if the hand is supported a little more.
This is however balanced by the sound, the excellently worked and easily playable fingerboard all times. Bund unity is given over the entire fingerboard and as well as the string position ex works well set. The fingers glide slightly over the frets, which have a pleasant height. The neck pick up was for my taste about 1 mm too high. The factory-side strings I would swap quickly, which they diminished significantly. I am now testing the Gibson Les Paul ultralight.
In contrast to all other guitars, Höfner is pleasantly light and very well balanced in proportions, it "carries" very well. (And even as a "bucket" I can say that it is very handy)
Also, the feeling when the fingers glide over the fingerboard I feel more pleasant than with the other guitars tested. This is due, on the one hand, to the frets, but also to the inlays that this model has.
Without amplification, so as an acoustic instrument, it does not convince me so much. This also applies to the other models with a thin body. Even so, the sound remains astonishingly long.
In summary I can say that I am very satisfied with the instrument and the repair of the jack sockets (because of the great Sustains I did not want to exchange them) was handled by Thomann in the well-known professional uncomplicated way.
If you are looking for a pleasant to play left handed electric guitar, which is not too heavy and gives a good sound musically in the above direction, here is a great instrument with a wide range of possibilities.

Beautiful finish and very c fashion

22.04.2016
The guitar has a beautiful finish and is very comfortable. It is thinner than one imagines and has a very nice mast. Another nice detail is that it comes with a double set of buttons, in black and cream, in case you want to tune it a bit.
I would just put a stick to the location of the pill change pin. It is too close to the ropes and sometimes accidentally changed pills. It has happened to me several times and forces me to be more aware of the count of my left hand (I am left-handed, I remind you). I already crashed into the photos. That's definitely not where you expect to find that pin. It helps to change pills fast but has more disadvantages than advantages.
