Jest przyzwoicie
Anonimowy 25.02.2016
Gitara dotarla po 3 dniach od wyslania pieniedzy. Jest ze mna juz miesiac. Wymagala regulacji - brzeczace progi, ale te bolaczki juz za mna.

WYGLAD
Wyglada pieknie. Jest solidnie wykonana, dosc ciezka i nawet plastikowe wykonczenia nie przeszkadzaja (zwlaszcza jak sie im nie przygladamy).

BRZMIENIE
Pick-upy o dziwo daja rade. Prózno w nich szukac mocnego ataku, ale nie do tego sa przewidziane. Brzmienie jest "okragle", lekko zamulone, ladne do grania bluesa, rocka, elektrycznego jazzu. Spodziewalem sie czegos znacznie gorszego.

OSPRZET
Mostek wbrew pozorom da sie regulowc, choc tylko czesciowo. Moze nie struna po strunie, ale nie jest tak, ze jest sztywny.

Godne pochwa?y sa klucze. Gitare z czasem pewnie zmodernizuje, ale one pozostana. Stawiaja przyjemny opór, sa precyzyjne i trzymaja strój jak nalezy.

PODSUMOWANIE
Ogólne odczucia mam bardzo pozytywne. Gra sie bardzo wygodnie, gryf stworzony jakby pod moja reke.

Jest szansa, ze po wymianie plastikowego siodelka, zmianie pickupów (mimo wszystko) i zainstalowaniu solidniejszego mostka, bedzie to moja podstawowa gitara, a wysluzony Ibanez trafi na sciane.

Za niewielkie pieniadze otrzymalem produkt wartosciowy, gdzie skupiono sie na wlasciwosciach instrumentu, a nie na ladnym wykonczeniu (plastiki). Zeby tylko tego brzeczenia nie bylo na poczatku...

Jeden szczegół

Gitara dobrze ustawiona, nienagannie brzmiąca, bardzo przyjazny gryf, który świetnie leży w ręce i daje możliwość precyzyjnej gry.
Wykonanie bardzo ładne, poza jednym szczegółem, a mianowicie wykończenia otworów f-holes.
Polecam zakup. Jestem bardzo zadowolony. Uwielbiam ten instrument.

Good if you can finish it off yourself
Mr Greggles 13.11.2018
I have made this into an excellent guitar and, if you have the ability, it is an excellent buy. If not it is a bit disappointing.

I have an HB Strat copy which cost a bit over £100. That has an excellent finish, a really good sound and is generally very good quality but needed a fret polish and a bit of setup. This cost very nearly £200. Again it has an excellent finish, a great sound, looks fantastic for the price and is mostly of very good quality. However it not so much of a bargain.

The problem is that although I'm fine with polishing the frets and doing a bit of setup I'm not so happy that, for quite a bit more money, I'm having to file and recrown some frets. When I first received it it was buzzing halfway up the fretboard. I let it settle for a few days and did a setup. The action was very low so raising it and tweaking the truss rod for a little more relief sorted out most of the buzzing. But the second and fifth fret were still causing problems and I had to do a bit of work on them.

The guitar looks great. OK, there isn't the depth to the veneer you would get on a PRS but I think it has some depth, so it's not a photo print. And as soon as you step back from it it looks amazing. The sound is warm and versatile, though the coil split doesn't add as much as I'd hoped and it doesn't have as much of a hollow body sounds as a 335. The tuners do the job, even if they don't feel particularly inspiring. All in all a great addition to my collection, now that the frets are sorted.

As I said, it is not a big deal if you have the skills and the tools but I could see it being a big problem for newer players. I guess the real problem is that my first experience with an HB was so good it set the bar very high. Having spent more money I didn't expect he quality to be worse. That said, now that it is sorted it looks, feels and plays brilliantly. I'm glad I bought it and would buy it again.

I just wanted to sound a word of warning to less-experienced users

LONGER TERM EXPERIENCE

I've had this for about ten months now. For most of that time I didn't use it. Every time I went to it it needed setting up again. It seemed that the wood needed to season a bit more. After about eight months (having tried it in between) it seemed that the neck had finally settled down. I have set it up and not needed to change it since.

I'm playing and recording with it now and It's a comfortable and versatile guitar. It's a great intermediate step between my big semiacoustic (Vintage VSA500) and my solid PRS SE II Santana. Very pleased with it now and intend to keep it and use it more.

Girl, you got a beautiful body, but your nuts ugly.
jaytee123 23.03.2018
Pros: The Body and finish is beautiful. Flawless. The pickups are great clean...so-so with gain. The guitar sustains amazingly well.

Cons:, the bridge is missing the tiny hex screw that locks the bridge in place on the treble side.
Seeing the guitar came with Wilkinson Pickups and not Roswell as advertised, I think I got an older one with one of the first attempts at crafting roseacer...lots of dents in the treated wood at the 1st fret. numerous imperfections in shaping up the fretboard and at the base of it. Dry as a bone. A little fretboard treatment improved it, but the feel of it is like it is made of a plastic composite. Not sure how heat chemically changed maple in this fashion.
The nut was atrocious on the treble side. Looking down the fretboard from the bridge, It is sloped too low to the right, so much that whomever cut the nut just put a notch in the E string to barely hold in place. The B string was a little better, but not by much. The result? Sitar noise with open string because the slot could not be properly cut with so little material on the treble side. I was surprised this was present on a guitar that spent a week in quality check.

I DON'T want to send this back. I sent an email asking for them to send a new nut and a locking screw, and I would fix it myself. Still waiting for a simple response to this after a day.
In purchasing this guitar, I reminded them I am in the states and that I'm not expecting perfection for spending 264 dollars shipped but expect a playable guitar with a reasonable amount of flaws. I also said future purchases would be based on the quality. Sorry, I can't buy anymore sight unseen from Thomann after my experience. This guitar spent a WEEK in quality before leaving...and the nut is awful.
Hopefully, I am sent a nut and the tiny locking screw, so I dont have to go searching all over creation for the right size for both.

I'm sorry I had to post this review, I wanted so badly to post a five star, yet the nut almost had me giving this a two. I mean, this is the MOST BASIC QUALITY CHECK, NO?
