Nice guitar for a price
andrejgr, 08.06.2016
I was tempted for some time, to get archtop guitar. I'm playing for 40 years now, I own several acoustic and electric guitars and also one hollow body LP shape. But I never really had archtop and the jazzy sound of it. I wasn't prepare to spend a lot, since I'm no pro and music is my hobby, not living. So I decided, after reading several reviews, to go and get this guitar. For me at that price, THE most important thing is quality of body and neck, all the rest can be easily replaced if needed. 200? is a gamble, I was willing to take blind.
When I received this guitar, i was pleasantly surprised. Just what I wanted (well, stil can not compare to Ibanez George Benson that I had oportunity to play) and expected. I have read in advance of all the bigsby problems, bridge problems, so I immediately unscrew top part of bigsby, put some wood under it and flattened the angle to bridge - the design is kind of silly, but managable. The only thing really annoying is the pickups, that buzz in their seats, so I guess I'll have to take the out, see the spring coil and adapt.
Neck is great, straight, in tune - if not, brige is adjustable, bigsby does it's job, not the greatest, but I have never used it before and have no technique so it's all right for me.
Without amp this guitar sounds nice and jazzy, just like I expected. It's very solid built and quite heavy.
With amp, (I use Fender Mustang) and with proper amp sound set, i prefer to use clean Fender Twin that sound great with this guitar, from jazz to rockabilly.
Pickups are nice sounding low output. tuners are ok., doing their job and keeping intonation.

All in all, I'm a happy camper.

After owning it half a year, I still like this guitar a lot. Adjusted some height of pickups to my liking, the rest is good.

HB Bog Tone Trem
Silverdog, 14.06.2020
When the guitar arrived the box had some damage and I was nervous that the guitar may be damaged but when opened the guitar was inside a second box that was not damaged, so I was happy to see that the guitar was perfect. This guitar does not disappoint with its looks, with all gold hardware it equals much more expensive guitars of a similar design. I was surprised that the guitar is quite heavy, also giving a feeling of quality, The guitar came fully tuned and could be played out of the box. After a week of playing the strings seem settled in and it holds tune after trem use. I have seen stories of leaning bridges due to the steep attack angle of the strings from the trem to the bridge, but my bridge is level even after a reasonable time of playing, maybe the problem has been addressed. I have checked the frets and find a few high frets mainly at their outer ends, causing some string buzzing on the Low E string, and a damped high E string at the 14th fret, I have ordered a set of flat wound strings to try , and will do the frets when I change the strings. I also ordered the recommended hard case for this guitar that has no problems. I can highly recommend this guitar to anyone who like me just love hollow body guitars, for its price it is a steal. Next step will be a better amp, already added to my wish list.

after 3 months
20.07.2015
I bought this just for the look of it and when it arrived yes it looked great, then I started playing it, which was a pleasant surprise - even with my heavy handed style it stayed in tune and the more i played the more i enjoyed it i gave the tremelo a good rattling and still in tune
compared with a friends very similar looking but two grand more machine it was better.. It sounded a little different but a small tweak of the amp settings and it was "there"
three months on and it continues to thrill, no real concerns, no breakdowns unlike my mates falcon which needs surgery after every gig.
Only thing is I am looking fror a wider bridge but this is because i do batter the hall out of it.
see me - well chuffed
Most fun guitar I have ever bought and it costs so little.

BigTone, Big Value
Grandpa Dan, 24.07.2020
I am 73 (playing since I was 10) & work on guitars for others. I also have quite a few guitars. Point being I know a great value, when I see one. The Big-tone is just that.

Cons: It is a bit heavy & I had to long gate the bridge holes, because my bridge would not go down to adjust the action. This is not the first time I have run into this & consider it all as part of a good set-up.

The Greats: This thing sounds great both plugged in and by it's self. The finish on mine is near perfect. The playability is very good. I am surprised at how well it stays in tune. This & a B-stock guitar came as advertised, in just 4 days! I live in the USA (Wisconsin) and am blown away by this very fast time. It is my first in stock order from Thomann. So, the two guitars I received are better then expected and one more still coming, with Thamann following up on that order as coming too. I will be ordering more from them and do recommend them. Thanks Thoman & my contact person: Melanie...
