Worst guitar I've ever played
JK ismyname, 22.03.2018
I'm really sorry to say this, but this was the worst guitar I've ever played.
I'm pretty sure there was not any kind of QC.
Because If this has passed the QC I don't know what to say.
The fretboard was really damaged in two different spots.
The frets were too rough, and you couldn't even make a half step bend!
The tone control made some weird noises while plugged into the amp.
The guitar was literally unplayable.

I'm quite dissapointed both from the QC and by the fact,that I needed a travel guitar so much. Of course I've sent it back to Thomann.
I also want to mention that a HB telecaster I've purchased some time ago for 82euros, was easily ten times better than this which costs almost twice as much.

I will also mention some minor flaws, that i could live with, but I don't know if there should be in this price.
One of the bridge bolts was totally loose, the strings are really light and poor quality and the fretboard is completely dry. It also doesn't hold tuning well too, but I didn't have the opportunity to test this a lot.

And If you think I'm being too picky here, I'll just mention that I've made purchases of over 3000euros and that, is the second time I return something.(the other one was just a faulty 50e looper pedal)

A quite nice travel guitar
Archion, 30.08.2017
For the money, it is a pretty decent travel guitar. Although it has one pickup, you can get a variety of sounds using the volume and tone knobs. The pickup has quite high output, so if you want to get the super clean sounds, then it may not be the best choice. The neck and fretwork feel quite good as well.
But the strings on the guitar felt like spaghetti, so I replaced them. When getting new strings you have to be aware of the fact that although the neck is of normal length, the guitar itself is much shorter, so you need to get thicker strings. I myself use 11s. Another thing you have to be aware of, is that due to the shape and size of the instrument, it is quite neck heavy, so you need to get used to it while sitting. Also, when using a strap I recommend you to fasten the strap behind the nut as you do with a regular acoustic guitar.
The minor problems I have are with the tuners sometimes not holding the tuning so well and the pickup screws tending to fall off.
But overall you'll get a pretty decent guitar and many amazed looks for the electric guitar this small size. Pair it with the Blackstar Fly 3 and you can rock out everywhere you want!
