Killer guitar, especially for the low price tag!

Daniel G. 770, 13.03.2017
I bought this guitar without actually ever seeing one in person, so i truly had no idea if i would love it or hate it. Thomann's returns policy made it a no brainer, so i thought "why not?!"

Service and shipping was top notch as always. This is the reason i'm a repeat customer here at Thomann.

First off, let me just say that the minute i opened up the box and took one look at the guitar.... I knew it was gonna be something special.

I paid somewhere in the region of £650 pounds for this including shipping, and the looks and visual appearance of the guitar are what i would've expected to see on a guitar in the £1500 to £2000 price range.

Gorgeous quilted maple top in purple burst, loads of pretty figuring in the top and it still totally looks great even when the light isn't hitting it.

The finish overall is really good quality, with nice 3 ply binding all the way around the whole guitar too. The neck is satin finished and i can honestly say it's even faster feeling than my Charvel necks (which are bare maple, raw unfinished). It's a D shaped neck to me, but without too much 'shoulder'. It's fairly thin and flat overall. Very comfortable and easy to shred on!

Huge jumbo 6100 sized frets, all smooth and effortless to bend on. The compound radius means you can have super low action without choking out on bends too. Nice!

The locking tuners are great and rock solid, although they took a few minutes to learn how to change strings. They should really include a user guide or a link to a youtube video explaining the procedure.

The pickups are USA Seymour Duncan Blackouts (active) and they're killer. Hot as EMG's, but tonally more like a passive pickup. To my ears, the bridge model sounds somewhere inbetween a JB and Distortion, but with more output and more tight low end thump. The neck pickup sings and sounds like a thick Les Paul neck pickup tone!

Acoustically i'd say the guitar sits tonally inbetween a LP Custom, SG and with the midrange of a V. I love my 2 LP Customs but honestly, this guitar gets the job done perfectly, weighing only a fraction of the weight and with effortless playability.

The bridge and tailpiece are rock solid, no complaints there. The nut was nicely cut too, no tuning issues to report!

Balance-wise the guitar sits comfortably. It's not neck heavy nor body heavy.

I can't really think of any 'cons' to be honest. Maybe that it doesn't come with a hard case? But that would only increase the price tag higher anyway, so no real benefit to that.

I'm enjoying this guitar that much that i may well take 2 of these out on the road with me, i'm currently eyeing up the Trans Red and Tobacco Burst finishes :-)

Good sound, not so good quality

bIxbl, 09.09.2017
Great sound, blackouts sound powerful and clear.
Good quality of the neck, a comfortable unfinished.
But not so good potentiometers. When turning, they make a noise, do not completely remove the sound at the 0 mark, the pickup switch dangles. The tone knob does not really change the sound.
Keep the guitar in your hands after the strat/ PRS is not very convenient.
