For 1k euro it's bargain
Anguz Young 04.10.2021
First of all, it's really beautiful. Neck is thin, looks and feels expensive&natural, frets are polished and without any sharp edges.
But the blue painting have some imperfections: so on the edge between neck and body you can feel thickness of the paint. There are some dots underneath paint layer (maybe dust was there before paint job) - that's 4 stars for quality.
Furniture is great except volume knob can be taken off really easy. Tone pot is made in Korea, and volume pot has no name on it, cover is shielded with foil.
Regarding setup: there is a label with Thomann QC with some signature on it, so looks like it's been set up by Thomann employees. Most important is the nut filed perfectly, even looks like it's possible to put on thicker strings, so I didn't hear any "ding" while tuning. Action and intonation setup was done mediocre, but anyway you will adjust it according to your preferences, so no need to take it to maintenance shop from the box.
Playability and ergonomics are just fantastic, knobs are smooth and placed where they should be with nice angled switch in between.
Unplugged sound is completely different from SG for ex., more to the tele-style that I have, but plugged in it's... heaven: pickups and those 5 positions with semi-split options make this guitar very versatile, really covers many different styles and genres, and it is my first guitar where the tone knob really works great! So, I'm satisfied with it 90%, but it's the only few hours I spent with my beauty), I'm sure it will open itself even more in the future. So is it worth 1k euro? for new one definitely. You get very beautiful modern do-it-all guitar with decent quality and excellent playability, so my regards to Chappers for this design and Thomann for quick delivery!

Fantastisk instrument
Emil Solgaard 15.06.2021
Helt og aldeles fantastisk instrument, har aldrig før mærket så meget resonans i halsen på en guitar. Potmetre knobs falder dog let af og blade switchen har lidt svært ved at skifte i ny og næ, men den står alligevel hovedsageligt til broen.
