Super verarbeitet und der Liebling aller Besucher
DennisHX, 17.06.2021
Als die Hagstrom Alvar bei mir ankam war ich positiv überrascht. Sie wirkt sowohl optisch als auch haptisch wie ein deutlich teureres Instrument. Im Wohnzimmer neben 4-5x teureren Gitarren ist die Hagstrom übrigens diejenige, die die Familie, Kumpels etc. als schönste betiteln ;-)

Die Gitarre kam top eingestellt an und der gute Eindruck spiegelte sich auch im Sound wider. Die Alvar haucht meinem Helix ordentlich leben ein. Sie kann dabei richtig rocken (AC/DC, Foo Fighters usw.) und aber auch typisch offen wie eine "große" Semi-Hollow klingen. Dabei bleibt sie immer schön differenziert. Für jemanden, der beides ("LP+ES335") in einer Gitarre vereint haben will, ist die Alvar genau das richtige.

Einziger Kritikpunkt: Am Gurt hängt sie für mich nicht optimal, da sie etwas Kopflastig ist und nach vorne kippt. Deshalb 1 Stern Abzug bei den Features. Im Sitzen dagegen ist die leichte Hagstrom ein Traum.

Für diesen Preis hatte ich noch nichts besseres in der Hand. Die spezielle Halskonstruktion erfüllt ihren Zweck wunderbar, der Hals ist richtig stabil. Feinheiten wie die Lackierung der Innenseite der F-Holes sind makellos. Da habe ich bei Custom Shop Gitarren schon ganz andere Sachen gesehen. Fazit: Klare Kaufempfehlung

No soy un gran guitarrista y la uso para tocar en casa, pero tengo una Gibson lp y una Strato y pese a que son guitarras diferentes en calidad de fabricación y sonido esta Álvar no desmerece en absoluto.

Schöner kleiner Schwede
StardustMicha, 03.06.2021
Sehr schön lackierte Gitarre, allerdings mit kleinen Lackiernasen am oberen und unteren Halsbereich. Dies entspricht leider nicht den von mir gelesenen Tests für dieses Teil. Weiterhin Schnarren der E und D-Saiten (hätte ich von der Werkseinstellung besser erwartet. Habe mir von den Thomännern deshalb nochmals eine zweite (eingestellte ALVAR) zusenden lassen. Dieses Mal kein Schnarren mehr, allerdings ist die schöne "Cherry-Red-Lackierung" hier 1-2 Töne dunkler, so dass der eigentliche Zauber nicht vorhanden ist; wir reden hier schon fast über einen bordeauxroten (fast deckenden Lack). Weiterhin habe ich festgestellt, dass der Korpus bei der zweiten gelieferten Gitarre nun statt 35,6mm (größte Breite) nun auf 35mm geschrumpft ist!? Habe einen kleinen Nachlass von Thomann bekommen und die "Erstgelieferte" behalten.
Der Sound ist sehr klar und mittig präsent, die Bässe ebenfalls sehr trocken und knackig. Gute Saitenlage.

excellent rapport qualité prix
Larguen, 04.06.2021
expédition conforme aux informations initiales.
guitare très bien protégée: 2 cartons + emballage + film protecteur sur chrome.
RAS à la prise en main: guitare niquel.
superbe guitare conforme aux attendus: look top, qualité des chrome top, équipements électriques top.
Ma meilleure surprise: sa facilité à jouer ! manche très fluide , frets précises. (pour mon niveau de guitariste intermédiaire)
Son top, même si j'ai un peu de mal encore à trouver les bons réglages entre micro et ampli ..mais en mode clear; son niquel.
bref, super gratte pour le prix. Je conseille...
ah si qd meme .petit bémol. made in china .. pas très fan mais bon..
