Well set up and playable right out of the Box after tuning it.
Gripchris, 19.01.2019
I'm a guitarist who makes my own recordings in my home studio. I mostly play a 6 string electric guitar, and occasionally, I use an acoustic when recording a backing track. I bought this guitar because of the wide nut, it gives me the ability to play clean chords at last after approximately 55 years of playing. This is one of the very few affordable options at a reasonable price.

The guitar was really well packaged, double boxed and air filled plastic pockets around to keep inner box to lessen the possibility of transit damage. Delivery time was quick from Germany to my door in England, I ordered on Monday and received on Friday.

I was pleasantly surprised with playability of this guitar, intonation and string height (action) were correct. I did drill into the curved underside of the neck heel and fitted a strap button, as I've always felt uncomfortable playing with a strap that attaches close to the tuners. A factory fitted strap button would have been very welcome there. I would also have preferred a factory fitted scratch plate, but they are readily available and easy to fit.

The build quality and choice of woods is good for a guitar of this price, although the fret ends would have benefited from some polishing. They are not too harsh, but lack the nice smooth feel of some of the more expensive guitars.

The acoustic sound was very nice, bass notes and high notes cut through nicely. For the electrics, I played through an Art Studio V3 to my PC with a Presonus Audiobox 18/18 interface to Senheiser HD380 headphones. The on board Fishman system does alright, it's a budget system and performs well enough. An extensive range of highs and lows are available through the bass and treble knobs, and can be adjusted from very muddy through to very shrill with a decent range of acceptable sounds in between. I found that I must remember to turn off the on board tuner, as it does not switch itself off, as I discovered when I noticed we had a new green light in our room around 6 hours after using the guitar.

Summary:
The acoustic sound is super, the electric sound is of reasonable standard, the action and general playability is good. I think this guitar represents excellent value for money and I would recommend it to anyone, particularly those with thicker than average fingers.
Chris.

Oh No Say It Ain’t So!!!
Happyme, 24.07.2019
I have bought a lot of things from Thomann in the past few months , three guitars ,three gigbags ,three feedback busters ,a clip on tuner and I have been blowed away buy the quality,playability,and the down right beauty of their products. I really don’t see how they do it BUT I guess they can’t get it right everytime .This guitar was a horrible mess. First the stings were deader than 4:00 ,the neck is bowed from Germany to Texas , and the action is 10 inches high (Well Maybe Not That Bad) and the neck is ruff ,the body has a few bad places in the wood. I could not believe that I got this from Thomann. I still like the guitar and it would cost me to send it back So I have a expert in acoustic guitars going to see what he can do.I hope he can straighten it out. I don’t blame Thomann ,I blame whoever inspected this guitar before they send it out. They must have been having a rough day. I’m looking at ALOT of other guitars ,amps and such that I will be purchasing in the next six months. The only thing I have left to say is Thomann love your product you just need to have a little meeting with your inspectors and let them know if the customer is not happy They don’t have a job. My Nickname is Happyme this time it is unhappyme.😢
