Almost exceptional value, but let down by the bridge
Drewbie 13.02.2021
Firstly, let's start with some Brexit issues. I originally ordered the grand concert version of this guitar with the gig bag bundle at the start of January 2021. However, I rejected the parcel at the point of delivery, because I really didn't understand why I was expected to pay an additional more than £90 to UPS. These charges, as it transpired are made up of 20% VAT, brokerage charges and a custom charge. I would refer to the two latter as 'Bozzer' taxes. Good on Thomann for showing ex VAT costs on their products, but bad on Thomann for not making their UK customers properly aware of all this nonsense....UPDATE 12/02/21. I bought some smaller items from Thomann (see below for why) and the VAT was applied at checkout, so maybe tariff free trade with the EU is becoming a reality? It would be really good news if this is the case, but it remains to be seen if the items I ordered are delivered without additional charges and if this system works with more expensive items......
Anyway, to the guitar. This is one of four models that are very similar. This particular one is significantly cheaper (so a good outcome on the return of the other guitar). I don't know why, but the larger grand auditorium guitar is cheaper than the smaller grand concert in the weird inverted world of guitar pricing. Other than that it is a bit of a mystery..... They are all solid wood, but the crucial difference is that the guitars with the black painted top have a sitka spruce top, while the non-painted top guitars have a mahogany top. You need to look into the specification to derive this important detail; why is that not made clearer? Also, I really don't understand why the top is painted as I am sure it would look better unpainted. Anyway, black it is, not perfectly smooth, with the grain showing through the finish. Otherwise, the guitar seems really nicely made, with the bevel really nicely executed..., very classy. The action is a bit on the high side. I haven't measured it, but nonetheless still perfectly playable and almost in tune straight out of the box. The fret ends are slightly spikey, but nothing terrible. The inbuilt Fishmann preamp/tuner is very nicely executed and not your usual black box on the upper bout. You do have to loosen off the strings to change the battery, which is located at the bottom of the neck, inside the guitar. It produces a very nice full sound with plenty of bass when not plugged in.
To the bad points, mostly trivial, but one significant demerit. The composite or 'ebonite' fretboard is absolutely fine. It isn't ebony, but then theoretically it should retain dimensional stability in all conditions. The tuning machines are not branded (as they are on some significantly cheaper HB guitars), but they are almost certainly up to the job. The nut and saddle are bone, but obviously white, which jars a bit with the overall dark finish. The bridge pins are arranged in a semicircle and are really cheap, nasty white plastic....'orrible! The pick guard is a really nasty faux tortoise-shell. I peeled it off straightaway and it left a lot of residue, which had to be removed by a bit of appropriate solvent. All of the preceding is pretty trivial and actually quite easy to fix for not much money. You can put a clear pick guard on, replace the nut, saddle and bridge pins with back/ebony items and you could even change the machine buttons for ebony ones. Total cost via ebay about £25.00. However, that brings me on to the bridge....why oh why is this also 'composite' when the mahogany topped guitars have a real ebony one?? The bridge is very obviously a lump of very dark grey, rippled plastic....Thomann, please make sure that ALL of these guitars have an ebony bridge.
Finally, it is obviously a matter of taste whether you prefer silver or gold hardware. I am generally a silver man, but a case can be made for gold in association with rich, deep browns. My smaller order referred to above was for gold Kluson tuners, gold KK end pin cover and gold HB strap pin. Total for all of this from Thomann with delivery was less than an additional £50.....
In summary then, almost exceptional value for patently obvious reasons, but let down by the plastic bridge. It should nonetheless make a really high quality instrument for all uses.

totally fell in love with the design at first sight so went for it.
and what can i say...
it arrived in about a week in spain.
opened the box and was pleasantly surprised. it looks just perfect in my opinion.
the finish, the wood, the armrest, everything is top notch, it really looks like a far more expensive instrument.
the setup was quite ok, i did lower the action a little bit as is was too high for my taste. nothing that couldn´t be fixed in 10 minutes ;-)
the frets needed a polish as they were a bit rough. again an easy fix. fret ends were good, no sharp edges.
had a bit of a problem at first with the 12 gauge strings because i was used to 10s(not the guitar´s fault anyway), but after a couple of days i got used to it and now i think it just plays beautifully.
the sound is very warm and quite loud even unplugged.
the pu is good as well, i like the different design as its tinier than the usual square ones and does it´s job really well.
also has a built in tuner which is great.
the stock mechanics are good with a good ratio. i changed them to black chrome ones but only for estetical reasons. changed the pins to black ebony ones as well for the same reason.
i am really happy with this guitar, would recommend and would definately buy it again. the price is more than reasonable for that instrument. good job thomann.
the design
plays really well
warm, rich and loud sound


frets needed polish
strings have to be loosened to change battery

other than those not really major issues i can´t say anything bad about it. beautiful and great guitar

reasonable guitar
GuitarDave 05.09.2020
This guitar is very nicely finished! The first thing I did was take this guitar to a luthier for adjustment. The strings were way too high. The nut and bridge were way too high. Tuning machines were not fixed. The guitar now plays great, but it required extra costs! After 5 minutes of playing my fingertips were black! At first I was absolutely not satisfied with the guitar. I made some minor changes. I have replaced the plastic bridge pins with ebony bridge pins. Another set of strings on it, namely Elixir. Fretboard oiled. And I removed the tuners and replaced them with Klusons.
The guitar now plays and sounds fantastic.

A Spectacular Beauty
Screeech 23.10.2019
When I saw this Mahogany body with the black face it struck me as one of the most beautiful, classy acoustics I had ever seen. I almost did NOT buy it because I really didn't believe the real thing could live up to the photos.

OOOh Man! The dak mahogany accented by the lighter wood trim - almost like pinstriping - is really a show stopper. And if that wasn't enough, they had to go and provide this instrument with a great set up. I have a Zager 900, recognized as one of the easiest to play acoustics anywhere - this plays just and smooth and easy. To believe the sound that comes out of this guitar you have to hear it. They really need to put samples up.

The only fault I could find with this instrument was the composite fretboard. On the one hand, it feels a bit scratchy when you perform a bend, but on the other, it seems to hold up to the very low humidity here a lot better than my Zager, which is Rosewood.

Hey - it really is a very beautiful guitar, and it really does play well, and it really does sound great.
