My first guitar!
26.04.2016
I was only looking for a guitar with 24 frets and H-S-H pickups and this appeared to be the best entry level deal.

I'm pretty satisfied with it, being a complete beginner.
I'm not sure whether the string gauge is .09-.42 or .10-.46 but they are pretty easy to do bends with and can withstand a lot of heavy/crazy strumming.

Out of the box it was not tuned accurately, but I bet this is because my environment (tropical island!) is way different than Thomann's.

Anyhow, being a complete newbie in tuning, I could follow the manual's instructions very easily, adjusting the truss rod, action of the strings by raising/lowering the bridge directly - or by adding springs, etc...

PROs
Good-looking
Easy to finetune
Quite stable tuning once correctly configured (loaded with a third spring, nut lubricated), even with tremolo abuse

CONs
Very heavy (I'm 5'9, 60 Kg if that helps), weighing at ~5 Kg
Not the best pickups, but they are fair enough
Shiny finish picks up scratches and fingerprints easily

Bottom line
I would recommend this guitar for anyone who wishes to start learning. However if you can afford a guitar with better pickups, I would suggest doing so.

Good for the money
NeilM, 03.07.2013
Great guitar, very playable and very comfortable. The neck and fret size is almost spot on, this would suit most situations. Great for learning, studio or possibly gigging as it seems sturdy enough. If I was to really nitpick its only flaws would be the volume and tone control are a little restricting (only a little) and there were a few small paint flaws around things like screw holes etc. These are only very small concerns and for the price this is a great guitar.
