Stainless frets on a ebony fretboard on a string through maple neck = mean low action shredding machine.
My first evertune, I'm blown away on how ridiculously quick you can change strings now. After you set it up, it's literally take a string out, put new one, wind the tuner up, when it stays the same note no matter what you do to the tuner you're set. She's in tune, next string.
4s for sound just cause despite being good, they're not foam in the mouth good.
4s for finish because the fretboard shrank ever so slighly which made the fretwire crack the finish, it's a hairline crack, but a crack nonetheless.
Despite knowing the picture is not vinculative, the color of mine in real life is a bit paller than the pictures.

Extra feature not mentioned anywhere. It's a 5p switch with p2 and p4 being coil splits.

Geniale Moderne (Metal) Gitarre mit peinlichen QC schwächen
Lamarro, 15.06.2021
Edit: Die Gitarre geht zurück an Thomann.
Nach mehreren Wochen und mehreren Problemen habe ich als "Evertune neuling" mich gewundert warum ich diese Gitarre öfter Stimmen muss wie meine normalen und hab mal die Evertune Inspiziert.
Diese war offenbar die ganze Zeit schief verbaut, dadurch haben sich wahrscheinlich die Sattel verbogen. An einer Schraube war bereits Rost dran.
Manchmal hat man wohl Pech ... daher downgrade von 5 auf 2 Sterne.

Ursprünglicher Post
Zuerst zum Negativen:
Die Verbindungsplatte zum Outputjack war nicht vernünftig geformt und wurde halbherzing angeschraubt. Dadruch Standen "Ohren" ab ...

Auf der Evertune waren alle Sattel in der Hintersten Stellung, dadurch musste ich alle Sattel Resetten da ich nicht vorhatte auf einer Solar mit 9-42 in E-Standart zu spielen. Also einmal komplett von vorne..

Der Lautstärke Potti war nach 1 Tag lose ... hab ich festgeschraubt.

Tonabnehmer höhe musste korrigiert werden.

Bis auf die Evertune waren alle Korrekturen eine Sache von ein paar Minuten ... aber bei einer 1200 Euro Gitarre ? Peinlich.
----------------- Cut ------------------

Zum Positiven: Ich liebe diese Gitarre
Alles in einem hat sie in jeder Anwendung einen "modernen" Klang.
Clean:
Die Pickups sind für Humbucker wahnsinnig Dynamisch, der Coil-Split ist nicht nur ein Gimmnick sondern klingt tatsächlich Single Coils sehr sehr Ähnlich. Nicht Perfekt, aber fast!
Für mich war daher die größte Überraschung wie unglaublich gut diese Gitarre clean klingt. (Meine Referenz: Chapman ML3 Pro Traditional).

HIgh-Gain:
Ich spiele Hauptsächlich Metal in Droped Tunings von Drop C bis Drop A und war auf der suche nach einer Drop C Gitarre um meiner Chapman ML3 BEA Barritone in Drop A Gesellschaft zu leisten.
Für Drop C habe ich NYXL 11-56 aufgezogen ... klingt sehr Aggressiv auf ohne dabei übertrieben Penetrant im Mittelfrequenzbereich zu werden. Sehr Moderner, midlastiger Sound wenn ichs mit wenigen Worten Beschreiben sollte. Habe damit zwar noch nichts aufgenommen aber ich kann jetzt schon sagen der klang ist definitv von der "Cut-Through" Kategorie da hier einfach nichts "matscht". Hier kommt auch die Dynamic der Pickups auch wieder ins Spiel, man hört wirklich raus wie hart man sich in die Saiten reingräbt.
Spielbarkeit ist für mich persöhnlich perfekt, die Gitarre fühlt sich schnell an ... und man spielt auf ihr auch Instinktiv schnell.

Alles in einem bin ich Begeistert!
Die Evertune macht sehr viel Spass, die Pickups klingen überraschend wahnsinnig gut(da ist sehr viel Seymour Duncan drinn), sie liegt gut in der Hand, ist vielseitig und Inspiriert.

Täydellinen hintaluokassaan.
Partajeesus, 28.02.2020
Keihäs on nyt ollut n. kuukauden ajan kotikäytössä, ja kulkenut pehmeässä kassissaan, Virettä ei ole tarvinnut korjata kertaakaan (kiitos evertune), ja hyvinhän tuo soikin.

Kaula on mukavan tuntoinen, ohut, mutta ei kuitenkaan liian heppoinen. Kaikkia nauhoja pystyy käyttämään koska perinteisen straton sijaan tässä on oikeasti mietitty bodyn mallia.

Ajattelin että lapa ei välttämättä sopisi silmiin, mutta onhan tuo nyt pirun nätti.

Mikit ei nyt ihan parasta ole, mutta kelpaa livesoittoon/studioäänityksiin ainakin raskaammassa musiikissa.

Plussana ulkonäöllisesti bodyn kuviot, sekä ''Ola Englund'' inlay 12 välissä, ilman muita turhia kilkkeitä.

Kaikenkaikkiaan loistava kitara reilulla tonnilla, ensimmäinen evertune jota ostan, eikä jää viimeiseksi.

Chitarra bellissima
Stige76, 11.03.2020
Ho scelto questa chitarra soprattutto per i legni ed i materiali usati. Una tastiera in ebano, per esempio, si trova su chitarre di prezzo molto superiore. Il ponte Evertune fa quello che dice e tiene l'accordatura anche dopo i bending più esagerati. Il timbro è metal ma il suono non si impasta neanche negli arpeggi. Se cercate una chitarra per fare metal la consiglio ad occhi chiusi perchè vale molto più del suo prezzo. Consegna avvenuta entro il tempo stabilito, molto bene.
