Excellent 1/2 sized guitar

Gordo, 24.10.2015
I can't praise these guitars highly enough.

The build quality and finish is good and all of the proportions thomann are correct.

The nut is well finished and the height of the nut is correctly set so that pitch isn't altered when depressing the strings on the lower frets as with some cheap instruments.

The bridge height is set well so that the overall string height is correct.

The neck width is right for a 1/2 and the fanning on the strings means that they are correctly spaced under the right hand.

The sound is good from the 1/2 body and its size is both large enough for the depth of sound and small enough to be right for a smaller player.

Many instruments at this price range are no more than toys. This is a well finished instrument with a high-quality sound for the size of body.

Additionally, I have ordered over 20 of these guitars in 3/4 1/2 and 1/4 and they are consistent in quality and appearance which is important when ordering from another country as to send an instrument back with insurance costs nearly as much as the instrument itself. You need to trust Thomann's quality control and you can!

I hire guitars to pupils and the Thomann 1/2 Classic-Guitar Gigbag #237374 is excellent value and provides really good protection.

Great considering the price

31.03.2016
It is a 35 bucks 1/2 guitar and when I ordered it I was somewhat affraid of what I will actually get as it was a gift. And I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and looks of the guitar.

Ok, it looks really good. The first glance at the guitar did not reveal anything that would show its low price.
I was also affraid that the fretboard and frets will be sharper, but they are not. My girlfriend (150cm) to whom I have bought it has been playing it regularly and has no problems with scratches and all these annoying things some cheap guitars cause.

The sound is fine. Took it to a friend who is a long-term guitar player and he did find only a few things which could e really improved (e.g. the neck is not completely narrow, it was just slightly bend).

The only problem with in terms of function is with the tuning machines - they cannot keep the tune well and the guitar has to be re-tuned every 2-3 days. Maybe different strings would help but as it is the review of the product delivered, I should talk about the product which came in the box without any changes.

In terms easthetics I also have only one problem. The insides of the guitar really smell of glue. I would say that they REEK of glue. You cannot really smell if you just hold the guitar, but when you inspect closely you can really notice it.

Overall it is a great product for the value. You cannot get anything of this quality cheaper or even close to the price. If you are just a beginner or getting it for a beginner than I would not stop you from buying this one. At this price you can always upgrade without any remorse and use this just as a back-up guitar or a travel guitar.
