Nice guitar with bad QC
Brian Walters, 04.08.2020
The first one i got played amazing, it sounded great and played smooth. After a while i started to play along with some songs and when the solo's arrived i noticed a major issue: high frets. Not only high frets, but like 5 frets that started to come out of their slots. I COULD hit them back in with a fret hammer but i wont do that with a guitar this expensive. It was a pity but i sent it back.

The second one i got played okay and sounded okay. It may be because the first one dissapointed me so much but i really couldnt connect with this second guitar. After i while i notices a chip in the fretboard, and another, and another one. Like 5 of them, and after that i noticed a like of filler in the back of the neck, and badly drilled screwholes. I was so mad, after a setup the guitar played good but it left a sour taste in my mouth and really couldnt stand it. Thomann offered a small discount but i really didnt want to pay almost 1300 euros for a guitar with these kind of issues. Also this guitar had 2 frets starting to pop out at the higher strings and those could be hit back in their slots.

I ended up shipping this one back and buying the Schecter Banshee Elite 6 CEP and that guitar was miles ahead of these 2 combined together. I only dont have a Floyd Rose but hey, small price to pay for a non damaged guitar.

Ça fait une semaine que je l ai reçu et je ne suis pas déçu. Les spécifications sont excellentes pour le prix. La finition ne présente aucun accro.

La couleur des photos de Thomann virent un peu trop vers le jaune. Les photos que l on peut trouver sur Google sont plus proches de la réalité.

Les micros sont très précis et particulièrement adaptés au rock et metal. La fonction push pull est très pratique mais ne la transformera pas en strato ni en simple bobinage. Cela étant ça rajoute un grain bien sympathique. Je ne la considère pas comme polyvalente d ou l etoile en moins

Pour les sons clair et crunch ça n est pas forcément la guitare que je choisirai mais pour les distorsions c est au poil.

Le manche est très agréable, proche de celui de la vai jem 77.

Petit bemol sur l absence de housse... Mais bon... C'est sans doute ce qui justifie le prix.
