A lovely little guitar at any price
Jimbike, 26.05.2017
I have been looking for a small guitar with a wider nut, comfortable for the sofa, that compressed sound but still sweet and have been looking at expensive ones I can't stretch to those at the moment so gave this a go.

Well my wife is sure they have sent me the wrong guitar.

From the box it looks beautiful, very neatly made, no stray glue, classy inlays, no sharp fret ends, bone nut and saddle. The nut was well cut, the action was a little high for me but easily sorted.
Playing, the sound is very good, the bass is clear and has that mahogany mellowness, strong midrange and not too trebly highs. All very clear with good sustain and volume.

The neck is comfortable and not too wide. I was amazed to find the frets are perfectly level. I have played a few guitars of various prices and very few have perfect frets. I cannot find a note that chokes even on the unplayable end. Plugged in sounds better than my expensive guitar.
The only thing that lets it down are the plastic bridge pins.

I love this guitar at any price

Update: After two years the neck is slightly twisting but not fatal yet.

Very nice parlour guitar
Highland Paddy, 01.03.2018
I purchased this guitar for a alternative to my Guild Westerly and also for my daughter to progress onto, from her 1/2 size classical guitar. I would say the other reviews here are accurate, it is a beautiful instrument, very well made, with features which you would expect from a guitar with a higher price tag. 2 observations I would make, which are not intended to be critical are as follows, the action sits quite high, so some truss road adjustment would be necessary. It's very easy and comes with a hex key. The neck is shorter than other parlour guitars I played, fret 12 is up at the body, and the nut at 45mm is slightly wider than a lot of steel string guitars and more like a classical guitar. If that doesn't bother you, then buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Brilliant parlour guitar!
Rhinos3054, 30.07.2019
This is an exceptional little parlour guitar and wonderful value for money. All mahogany so a very warm sound. Needed some adjustment to truss rod (easy) to lower the action. Not tried the electrics but had fish man before and they’re usually excellent. Really playable right down the neck, great for blues, folk etc. Even the machine heads on this, whilst cheap are very good, smooth and holds tuning well. Well recommend! Would be great if it was marketed with a case but cant have everything. As a seasoned guitarist I would advise a lighter touch with these parlor guitars. I can play a bit aggressively on my Lowden, but these little beauts will rattle if thrashed, so go easy and you will get a brilliant response! Well done Thomann!
