Snarls unfortunately

Sascha43, 07.03.2018
The delivery went as always very fast and arrived well packed at home. Optically, a very nice guitar, clean processed, frets well trained, waistband clean filed, relatively low string position - no processing errors were found. Unfortunately it took a bit longer to tune, on some strings there was a loud audible slipping sound, whether it came from the tuning peg or the body of the guitar I could not determine - maybe there is a connection with the so-called "APC String System", which is apparently used in this guitar, but is not listed in the description, but only in the "Thomann Classica Comfort" is mentioned.

To the sound: Balanced between bass and treble strings in all situations, it can be loud - first impression very good. However, I noticed a slight buzz of the string in the open a minor chord at the applied thumb stop, which could only be compensated by excessively strong pressing of the string.
The next day, I took the guitar to the guitar teacher, who liked the model very well in terms of processing and sound. I had not told him about my problem with the buzzing of the string - in the extensive trial then also the problem with him playing with an applied attack, but not only on the string, but almost on all strings when playing with an applied attack. He has repeatedly compared between his standard guitar and this model, the snoring occurred only with the "Thomann Classica Pro" on. Maybe it's because of the relatively low strings, but a classic guitar should be playable with no bumps. Now I have the guitar first returned to Thomann with reference to the problem - I'm curious if it can be fixed.
#####################
Addendum 1 week later:
The first guitar was returned to Thomann because of the above-described snare problems with a detailed description of the error that occurred, with a request for tuning this guitar or a new guitar without this problem. After a week came replacement - it took a little longer than usual with Thoman what a positive sign for me: one took the time to pick out a corresponding instrument.
Unfortunately, the first disappointment after tuning in and voicing: the buzzing still in the open A minor chord on the D string in the second grip field (ie when E, at A minor can not be used directly on the fret bar become).
Second disappointment: the guitar detuned relatively and quite strong, when retuning the A-string has slipped out of the holder - here seems the "APC String System" to have problems. I pulled in the string again.
In addition, I have noticed in this guitar further processing problems: on the beautiful spruce top were spiral grinding marks to see and the frets were not polished / very rough, so that the wound strings were damaged quite quickly. Dennocj I did not want to give up so quickly and have made an appointment with a guitar master builder to check if it is still possible to adjust.
First impression of the guitar maker from the guitar was good, he has just played through the entire fingerboard and asked where the problem is. Then A minor and it snarled again violently and he confirmed that this should not be. Even after trying back and forth it was difficult to classify where the buzz came from, to be on the safe side he also changed the D-string (and wondered about the attachment system of the strings - with the indication that the classical mounting is possible, and this APC System could be problematic in terms of tuning stability). Even with a new string still the buzz, the new string showed relatively quickly again damage because of the rough frets. His guess is that this sound produces resonances with the ceiling, causing this disturbing noise. That's why I sent the guitar back to Thomann.
Conclusion:
The workmanship seems to waver, ordered two guitars, one was visually very good, the other with various restrictions (rough frets, sanding marks on the ceiling). However, both had a resonance / snare problem and are therefore not usable for me.

Egg legend Wollmilchsau

Albinator, 17.01.2018
I started playing the guitar last autumn and therefore I was looking for a beginner guitar. A concert guitar for the tight purse with solid ceiling, good sound and reasonable workmanship were the cornerstones. Appearance was rather secondary. After some research, I stumbled across the Classica Pro, which I then had to try out locally.
Of course, my wealth of experience is not very big yet. But, for me, it fits well in the hand, it is really good sound and the processing does not need to hide from more expensive alternatives. If I have researched correctly, it is probably made by APC Instruments in Portugal, so made in the EU. For the price / performance ratio is in my opinion first class. What I especially liked is the great look. I'm not a big fan of glamor, so the matte look hits the bull's eye. According to the advice, it is still not just natural, but has a fine matte to semi-glossy finish as protection.
Even my guitar teacher was enthusiastic about the guitar and above all about the price for what was offered.
What really negative I could not find so far. The time will show? S.
Despite the good sound, I still changed the strings (Savarez 500ARJ), which has raised the whole thing to another level, I think.
Therefore, all in all for me the egg-laying Wollmilchsau under the (beginner) guitars, which, together with the price, are clear 5 stars! Top
