Just true to what it is.
TomTom51 29.06.2021
Wanted a travel guitar with a full scale (even if it's a short one 24.75") and not over-expensive (so I basically don't care much). There is not much choice in this area, and I think this product is adequate quality/price ratio-wise... Maybe a little overpriced, you can have better quality for less money when it is about regular guitars. The 1-picjup version has the correct price I would say, but I still wanted the 2-pickups version for versatility. But it comes with its gigbag which is nice (although not super quality, let's see how long it lasts..)
At arrival, relatively suprised in the good way: the guitar was perfectly set-up (a first for me with an instrument bought here), the slits of the head nut look quite ok, and frets are relatively even all along the neck. PIckups height was not really set-up properly ok. But the strings were a 10-46 to swap (to loose on this scale according to me and don't know what brand or their age but they didn't sound anyway), and a feeling very rough to the touch on the wood of the neck and the frets. Very strange, like it was not polished all the way?
When playing, well, as everybody says, huge neck dive... That is I think really annoying and could be a motivation to send it back. But I am not sure other brands of travel guitar have solved the problem anyway? Would need to try them beforehand... I solve it when playing standing by using a second strap going in between my belly and the guitar and over the opposite shoulder from my back. I use this technique to carry more evenly my heavy instruments, and it has the avantage to keep the neck perfectly set. But it doesn't solve entirely the problem: because the very small body and the position of the strap lock, the guitar still tilts forwards and the neck is facing the floor somehow... Strap lock should be on the side of the body not on the rear, there is not enough weigh to balance it properly... For playing sitting, then it is in between the legs like a classical position, and one gets use to maintain it with both legs and picking hand... Not too bad then. But I cannot play it at all on the right thigh it always dives it is really annoying...
After playing a little, the roughness of the neck seems to fade away? Maybe it is just kind of a layer of dust? Or maybe cleaning it with oil can help also, It doesn't bother me anymore anyway.
So today I tried to swap the strings for a 11-50, and I obviously had to set it up properly. So first of all I don't understand the tools furnished with the guitar. The trussroad Allen key is very short and impossible to use almost, not enough leverage, and there is a second small Allen key but everything else at the bridge are all different kind of screws. Bascially needs 3 different screwdrivers. Regarding the strings it is not super easy, there is nothing to keep them in track when tightening it from scratch and they can get stuck in the bridge or the pots very easily. Regarding the set-up of the bridge it is kind of a nightmare, it took me almost the entire day. My mistake was to remove the long screws holding the bridge for the set-up. I though it was just to maintain it. But it actually sets the overall scale!! So I had to restart from scratch when I understood that and I could not make the intonation correct before that. And then, because you have to untighten all strings before each move (intonation or action) and tighten them again after each move to check where it is... Very long and painful. But I finally did it.
Now I am quite happy with this gauge and the instrument correctly set-up. Soundwise, It is not the best pickups of course, but I think it is entirely satisfying for the purpose of this instrument.
So yes, the instrument has some issues, direct consequences of the design for compacity and light weight and there is not much to do about it I believe... But once one learned to tame the beast, I think this is quite OK and it serves it purpose well: travel or couch guitar...

Update:
I have moved the strap lock on the side front of the guitar. There is still the huge neckdive, but not the tilting forward anymore. And now I can use only one strap in reverse (opposite shoulder looping in the back and betweeen belly and guitar) and the guitar holds perfectly by itself when playing standing!! Have taped some rubby-foamy/rubber tape bands on the sides (even above the strap lock) and it is very helpful to help hold it when playing sitting. It is perfect now, I considered the Sonic L-22 as a compromise for replacement, but I would always choose the Shorty now it is a little customed, it is just perfect in combination with an amplug like the blackstar for versatility for example.

Update 2:
I used it to try and test a new electronics design with rotary switches instead of potentiometer, and I realized the potentiometers installed from factory are 250k. That could explain the sound a little dull as these are humbuckers, maybe change it to 500k would already better satisfy some...

Zwergenteil mit Riesenpower
Thunderic 24.04.2020
Dieses kleine Zwergenteil ist der absolute Hammer. Eigentlich habe ich die Gitarre lediglich als Übungsgitarre für den Urlaub bestellt.
Angestöpselt über einen Marshall DSL 100 schmeißt das Ding einen Sound, dass ich mir ernsthaft die Frage gestellt habe, aus welchen Gründen ich so viele teure Gitarren dieser amerikanischen Superfirma gekauft habe. Optimal eingestellt vom Thomann Gitarren Service, absolut bundrein, kann man ohne Probleme auch mit einem geschraubten Hals leben. Die Lackierung ist astrein, Mechaniken super und es gibt absolut nicht rumzukritteln. Vor lauter Begeisterung habe ich mir gleich eine zweite bestellt.

Pas mal du tout pour un tel prix !
Greguti2 30.09.2019
La guitare est arrivée quelques jours à peine après la commande, c'est appréciable ! L'étui noir qui l'accompagne n'est pas des plus épais, mais il fait le job.

La Shory Deluxe a donc deux micros humbuckers et un sélecteur trois positions, ce qui en fait une guitare plus complète que le modèle à un micro.

Déception après mes premiers tests : la guitare n'était pas vraiment réglée... J'ai dû jouer du truss rod et régler la hauteur de chevalet pour supprimer les buzz qui intervenaient dans les premières cases en haut du manche, du côté des cordes de Si et Mi. Evidemment comme c'est de la fabrication chinoise un peu cheap, les pas de visses ont tendance à s'écraser rapidement... Mais la guitare reste facile à régler si on sait ce qu'on fait.

Testée sur un petit ampli de salon et un gros amplki de concert, les sonorités sont plutôt pas mal, beaucoup de puissance et pas mal de nuances en sons clairs.

Pour un tel prix, franchement, c'est une excellente guitare de voyage, avec un vrai manche, de taille Gibson, on a vraiment la sensation de jouer sur une vraie guitare.

Pequeña Pero matona
Oscar Manuel de Melero 02.05.2020
Pequeña gran guitarra.
Tengo una steinberger para viajar y la cambie por la Hofner.
Las pastillas estan bien , no hace falta cambiarlas.
El diapason solo le falta un poco de hidratacion.
Con el tiempo le cortare la pala y le pondre micro afinador Steinberger.
Para apoyar en la pierna, ya los venden con ventosa de quita y pon , o el mismo de la Steinberger fijo atornillado.
El tema de el balanceo, hay gente que pone muñequeras de pesas en la correa..
"YO" descubri que si pones un tercer tornillo de correa en la pala, ya no balancea..
El tema de la cambio de cuerdas, con un poco de paciencia y punteria, se puede hacer sin necesidad de desmontar el puente (Yo lo cambiare por el sistema Steinberger).
La funda mejor comprar una extra con doble bandolera, pues la original solo trae una y no sirve de mochila, aparte redondeas el precio y te sale el porte gratis + otra funda.
Yo no lo hice por despiste y no se cuando volvere a comprar, pues comprarla sola cuesta el doble por los portes
