Very happy with this guitar. I think it will appreciate in value now the cat is well and truly out of the bag (pandemic notwithstanding). Time will tell if there are problems with the countersunk jack, how the tremolo holds up etc. but I'm struggling to find any flaws. I wasn't sure I'd like the feel of a lacquered maple neck but I love it. The pickups are good, tremolo much better than I expected, rounded frets and intonation are great too. You can really wail on it. Tuning heads are good. I had no set-up work to do when I got it (unlike every fender guitar I've bought) which was a nice change. It's been a dream to play and sounds fantastic with my rig (Essentials being an Orange Amp, JHS Spring Reverb and GE-7 EQ pedal), I'll be using it to record. There is great tonal variety. It makes me play differently which is probably what I love most about it. I've gigged with a telecaster or Les Paul for 15 years solid and feel I now have a very versatile gigging guitar in the S7 that offers enough tonal variety with the HSS configuration (I wanted something to straddle the single coil (more towards the strat end of the spectrum than the tele) and humbucker worlds and it certainly does that. The best compliment I can give the S7 is that it will now be the guitar I take to gigs. Whether it proves to endure as a workhorse like the tele, time will tell! Early days but worth a punt for current price for sure.

Just a plug: Will be using it to record next Jeykll & Jeykll EP if anyone is interested in hearing it in a studio mix.

What a great guitar! Sire guitars are just amazing value. So many great tones from the pick up choices and it just looks killer.

I have never purchased a guitar through Thomann before being from Australia, but I'm so glad I did. I ordered on 11 February and it arrived 10 days later so the postage time was excellent seeings its travelled halfway around the globe to get to me. Double boxed so it was nice and safe when it arrived.

Great guitar! :)

The guitar is quite great for its price range. The features on the guitar is rather impressive in my opinion, especially the lock-in-tuners.

Con's:
- The first string kept breaking from one of the first times i tried the guitar, and in the 2-3 week period that i have had the guitar, ive broken 3 E-strings. It always happens from the bridge.
I used some sandpaper and polished the stringslot in the bridge, and so far it seemed to work :)
- The intonation on the guitar is not the best, and i had to do a lot of setup work to make it better, it is still not perfect - but it does work allright.
- There was also a bit of string buzzing (even with a quite straight neck).

With a bit of trial and error with intonation-work and polishing frets and string-slot the guitar is working supricingly well. I will use it for teaching my guitarpupils, and for the purpose it is a fantastic guitar :)

Unbelievable Guitar!
Red McGee 22.04.2022
This guitar has features that far surpass high end Fenders I own. The scallops and the staggered locking tuners make this an absolute delight to play. I absolutely love it!
