Great guitar and an absolute dream to play
awdhuk, 22.03.2020
Bought this as my first 7 string for some metal chugging and am very satisfied so far. I was worried about the very flat fretboard radius, bright pickups and relatively long scale lenght, coming from standard 6 strings with a 12" radius and 24.75 inch scale length. I can honestly say that the adjustment was immeadiate and I have found zero issues with these specs. This guitar is just as, if not more, comfortable as my other guitars, so I wouldn't worry about these specs, except if you are super picky about them. The pickups are very clear and articulate, especially for bigger chords, and are definitely aggressive enough for some rythm playing as well. The only issue I found with this guitar is that there is a finish crack at the neck joint, hence the 4 star quality rating, but I read that it is realatively common, and it doesn't affect playability at all.

Overall a great buy, and I absolutely don't regret getting this guitar over cheaper alternatives!

Sound Top, Tuner Flop!
Andi.D, 11.02.2020
(Achtung! Langer Text :-))
Ich hatte mir zuerst eine WN (Walnuss) Ausführung der MH SVN vorbestellt (sollte meine erste 7-String werden). Als Sie dann geliefert wurde war ich enttäuscht vom Zustand der Gitarre.
Der Sattel war so tief geschlitzt, dass die tiefen 4 Saiten im Leerbund schnarrten. Der Volumen Knopf (aus Metall) war so tief auf die Poti-Achse gedrückt, das schon Schleifspuren auf der Decke waren während man den Ton-Knopf nach dem Ziehen (zum Coil-splitt) in der Hand hielt. Zusätzlich waren auch Bearbeitungsspuren unter Lack an der Korpusrückseite sichtbar. Bemerkenswert ist auch, das bei beiden Versionen der MH SVN der Sattel entgegen den offiziellen Produktfotos (auf denen der Sattel immer schwarz war) weiß bzw. beige aus einfachem Kunststoff (der sich farblich mit dem Griffbrett Binding beißt) ist. Die Gitarre ging zurück. Ich habe dann die Fahrt zu Thomann auf mich genommen und dort eine SVN HB (in deutlich besserem Finish) begutachtet/probegespielt und gekauft.

Positiv:
- Die Bespielbarkeit ist sehr gut, die Gitarre ist gut ausbalanciert, der lackierte (satinierte „kunststoffartige“ Lackierung) Hals liegt angenehm in der Hand
- die Seymour Duncan Alpha & Omega Pickups sind das Highlight der MH, der Sound ist auch mit Distortion klar und neigt nicht zum „Matschen“. Cleane Sounds sind in der Mittelposition toll, mit Coil-splitt sind sogar „funky“ Klänge möglich

Negativ:
Nach jetzt ca. 2 Wochen ganz klar die Stimmmechaniken und der Sattel. Den gröbsten Stimmproblemen kommt man mit etwas nacharbeiten und schmieren des Sattels entgegen. Die PRS gelabelten SE Tuner sind aber einfach nicht gut. Unpräzise und ungleichmäßig zu bedienen und für den Zug der tiefen B-Saite einfach zu schwach. Nach kurzem Spielen muss immer nachgestimmt werden. Eine solche Gitarre ohne hochwertige Locking-Tuner ist einfach untauglich.

Fazit:
zwiespältig. Das Aussehen, der Sound und die Bespielbarkeit sind sehr gut. Vom Finish der Gitarre habe ich wie oben beschrieben einmal ganz schlecht und einmal ganz O.K. erlebt (bei einer >1k€ Gitarre sollte das nicht vorkommen). Man muss aber zum Kaufpreis der MH SVN eigentlich den Umbau auf hochwertige Locking-Tuner (und ggf. besseren Sattel) dazurechnen.
