A good, versatile guitar
lorozic, 25.10.2020
Unfortunately, there are not many reviews of this guitar outside of Japan, but I trusted the "made in Japan" label based on their track record. No regrets there so far :)

I mostly play metal, but have diversified and wanted a guitar that would suit me for many styles. This guitar caught my eye because it promises a different take of the classic guitar, with a more modern player in mind.

Looks: I was afraid the glossy black finish might make it look cheap, but that is absolutely not the case - it looks classy and gorgeous. As with any glossy black guitar every imperfection will be painfully visible, and this one arrived in PERFECT condition.

Sound: It works well with anything, from the subtle distortion of classic rock to something like old Metallica's sound with the bridge pickup (packs quite a punch!), with very defined tones. It doesn't sound like a classic Strat though (more "meaty" sound), if that's the sound you really want.

Playability: wonderful as one would expect from a Strat. The classic Strat volume knob might get in the way of your picking hand when shredding. I fortunately don't have an issue with that.

The guitar was set up well (low action, no buzz), but it did require frequent tuning in the first few days, though (strangely) it got out of tune more from playing than using the whammy. Once it got stable, it stayed there.

Also, shoutout to the Thomann crew: I'm one very satisfied customer!
