Incredible value for money
MarkD69, 18.02.2020
Appearance:
Beautiful quality guitar. The finish is really attractive - the silver glitter is very effective. Had only seen it in the black (which is nice too) but the silver is lovely.

But how does it play?
Lovely smooth action all the way up. Light frets, easy on the fingers, without any buzzing all along. Excellent range of tones from the choice of pick-up combinations. Light-weight, much lighter than a Fender, it's a perfect starter instrument. The profile and finish on the neck is particularly comfortable. Physically easy for a player new to electrics - even coming right up the fretboard, it still feels accessible and true.

Overall:
Hard to believe it's only €200. I bought this as a first electric for a 13-year-old and we are blown away by how good it is. She's been used to playing my heavy, rounder-necked Epi Les Paul the odd time but tiring quickly, so this is a new world for her - she can't put it down! I think I'm going to have to buy one for myself now.

P.S. Would also mention the delivery - it was so well packed, we had trouble getting it out! Well done and thanks a million!

A nice looking guitar ...but
Marcus aurelius, 28.06.2020
I’m not a great player ,I just like playing for myself and composing tunes
This is a very nice guitar and I like it to bits . It’s like it’s part of you it just fits in and it’s light not heavy like some telecasters
The action is quite low which I like It had obviously been set up well.
I played it straight out of the box with only the G string needing a tweak.
After three months I’m Very happy with it . ,
It’s all pros with me
No cons at all
I’ll be back. LOL

Totally good for its money
Niowka, 17.01.2021
Use: Bought this one for my young brother as first guitar. He was really glad to have this one as a gift.
Obj. Pros:
1. great design (especially if you are a telecaster boy/girl)
2. stay tuned while playing (no need to turn pegs every 3 mins.)
3. Both pickups work well, and are regulated lever (as it should be)
What else do you need?
Obj. Cons:
1. 1-3 frets had kind of rattle noise (common thing for middle-lower price segment instrument), what needs to be corrected by guitar master or by adjusting guitar anchor, using internet video tutuorials XD
2. No more observed at the moment

Summary:
Great for beginners, and as second istrument, if you are first one was really terrible. Fits for home using, local concerts and for getting into wonderfull guitar-players world.

Super Silver
Great Dane , 18.06.2020
This Tele is very cool. I was surprised by the flawless looks and finish.
Tuners are good, and holds tuning quite well for a guitar in this price range.

Pickups are decent. I read in some other review that they are kind of flat and I would tend to agree. They sound ok , but lack a bit of punch so this could be an upgrade at some point.

The guitar weighs about 3.5 kg which to some is a good weight . However , I was hoping for a bit lighter weight. But that is all a matter of preference .

Satin neck is smooth and easy . It would have been cool with rolled frets for easier handling however a good luthier could help with this if preferred .

Bottom line:

Yes, get this guitar if you are looking for a great practice and bedroom or teaching instrument .
I would think that it is fine for gigging as well after a good setup.
For this price it is an amazing deal .

Thomanns service is great as always .
Looks like I will be coming back for more stuff;)
