Travel guitar with a lot of potential but let down by some significant drawbacks
JP Martinez, 27.10.2020
This travel guitar could be a great product but it possesses some major shortcomings that could just be a mild annoyance to some but could render the product unusable for other people.

The neck, the action and the feel are pretty decent for a guitar of its size, with a surprisingly solid sustain and sound when unplugged. That said, the guitar doesn't stay in tune for more than 15 minutes (going completely out of tune if playing for an hour long practice session), so new locking tuning pegs might be needed. If you break a string you will need to remove the entire bridge to change a string. I have not tried using the guitar with an amp but I tried plugging to an interface and have gotten mostly muddy results.

The most serious issue is the extreme neck dive and the only solutions are using a heavy counterweight (around 2kg) tied to the other end of the strap (which makes it really heavy and hurts my back) or using an acoustic strap tied to the headstock. It could be a great product through some modding (new tuning pegs, bridge and pickups), but not sure if it is worth it.

sehr brauchbar
bluecat, 18.05.2020
Nicht nur als Wohnwagen-Gitarre unschlagbar, auch als Ich-nehm-mir-mal-eben-die KLampfe- KLampfe richtig gut. Die Pickups klingen gut, haben viel Output. Die Gitarre schwingt gut, hätte ich nicht gedacht. Ja leider mussten die Mechaniken runter und der Steg, ging gar nicht. Wilkinson und KLuson haben zu einem angenehmen Qualitätssprung verholfen.
Für das bischen Geld, was diese Klampfe kostet, gibt es aber trotzdem nichts zu meckern.

Elle fait le boulot
Chmoras , 02.10.2019
Achetée pour une pratique nomade pour un budget serré cette shorty est une agréable surprise. Elle a tout d'une grande!
Les points négatifs: un déséquilibre notoire vers le manche et une finition moyenne.
Les points positifs: Un excellent rapport qualité/prestations/prix, une bonne sonorité et sa polyvalence.
En conclusion: Elle a une bouille sympa, c'est une vrai guitare électrique pour moins de 200 euros. Je suis ravi de mon achat.
A noter une service client irréprochable de Thomann comme d'habitude.
Foncez!

Kleines Instrument zu einem super Preis
Buenoventura, 22.01.2020
Da ich mir noch nie ein so günstiges Instrument gekauft hatte, waren meine Erwartungen an das Instrument nicht sehr hoch. Doch ich würde ganz schön überrascht:
Die Höfner Shorty Deluxe ist ein amtliches Instrument. Die Verarbeitung ist in Ordnung. Der Hals ist gerade und das Instrument gut bundrein. Die Mechanik ist vielleicht die großte Schwachstelle, aber auch völlig in Ordung für den Preis.
Einzig ein Erdungsbrumm, wenn keine Hand auf den Seiten aufliegt, stört.
Fazit: ein super Instrument zum Reisen (bis jetzt auch im Handgepäck im Flugzeug kein Problem gehabt).
