Appalling quality control

I've had this guitar for several months and it's fundamentally a great guitar. It looks better in real life than in the photos and for the price has a very solid feel and is very versatile.

When I originally received it and opened the box it looked great. However, on close inspection there were a few issues:-
1)The action was very high.
2) the bridge pickup was loose and moved around easily.
3) the stainless frets were pitted and very noisy when bending notes.

I was tempted to send it back, but I really liked the looks and feel of it, and i'd intended to fit lighter strings so hopefully could sort the issues at the same time.
The pickup just needed the springs which sit behind it stretching a little.
I polished the frets with some very fine wet and dry, but need to do a lot more as they're still far from perfect.
I also lowered the saddles and the bridge. There's not much room under the bridge so can only dive with the tremolo.
Unfortunately, with the bridge lowered it was obvious that the nut was much too high too...notes on the first couple of frets were sharp. To correct this I had to lower the nut.

With all that done the guitar now plays quite nicely. The pick-ups are nothing like the more expensive ones in my other guitars, but it's great to use for practise and as a backup for gigs.

Incredible guitar
Vladimr 27.07.2021
Comfortable and responsive, pleasant timbre, excellent attack, fingers easily fly over the neck. Components and materials are of high quality, assembly and painting are excellent. I am overwhelmed with the desire to play this "cuttlefish" from only one species.

Komplette Ausstattung, toller Sound
Peter416 29.07.2021
Ich spiele hauptsächlich Blues und Jazz(-Rock). In diesen Genres wird die Fusion-III auch von mir eingesetzt. Als Verstärker kommen diverse Fender Amps zum Einsatz.
Positiv:
- Die Ausstattung und die Qualität der Komponenten:
Stainless Steel Frets, Locking Tuner, Wilkinson Tremolo, Graphtech Sattel, Coil-Splitting
- die Optik:
die Lackierung ist wunderschön und fehlerlos
- die Bespielbarkeit:
das Halsprofil ist für mich sehr angenehm und wenn man weiß, wie man das Wilkinson einstellt, kann man eine sehr niedrige Saitenlage einstellen. Das Tremolo in Kombination mit dem Graphtech Sattel und den Locking Tunern sorgen für eine sehr gute Stimmstabilität.
- der Sound:
an den Fender Amps und für die Musikstile, in denen ich die Fusion III einsetze, klingen die Roswell Pickups richtig gut und alle Schaltpositionen sind absolut brauchbar.
Negativ:
- die Bünde waren nicht oder zumindest schlecht poliert. Es kratzte bei den Bendings. Klar, dass lässt sich beim Saitenwechstel leicht beheben, hemmt aber den Spaß beim ersten Ausprobieren.
- Die Werks-Saiten färben ab, man bekommt schwarze Finger.
Fazit:
Für den aufgerufenen Preis ein Top Instrument, das richtig Spaß macht.
Man sollte aber folgendes beachten, bevor es losgeht: Wissen, wie man ein Wilkinson Tremolo einstellt, Saitenwechsel und Bünde polieren.
Absolute Kaufempfehlung!

Para su precio es perfecta
letdiasan 09.08.2021
Muy satisfecha con la guitarra, el sonido lo noto algo más agudo de lo que estoy acostumbrada pero con EQ se soluciona muy fácil. Las pastillas también estaban demasiado cerca de las cuerdas y el jack de salida parece tener algún problema con los cables, nada que sea de difícil solución. La noto más pesada que otras guitarras pero no exageradamente, por todo lo demás es muy buena guitarra, con características de guitarras mucho más caras a un precio asequible.
