Decorative all-rounder

With this high-quality guitar equipped with two splittable humbuckers, you will be prepared for any scenario. The ergonomically designed body made of mahogany-like nyatoh with a dark turquoise high-gloss top finish is bolted to the maple neck in the truly traditional way. In addition, the ebony fingerboard with a 305mm radius ensures a snappy sound. To sum it up, tasteful looks, high flexibility, and tried-and-tested branded hardware and electronics come together here to create an affordable instrument that is suitable for a variety of genres.

Variety and aesthetics

The Fusion-III HH FR Roasted is a real eye-catcher. The body is made of nyatoh with a top in a modern high-gloss "Ocean Turqoise" finish, creating a decorative appearance. A four-screw neck joint secures the maple neck to the body. This instrument is very comfortable to play thanks to its nut width of 42mm and its modern C neck profile. The fingerboard with 22 wear-free jumbo stainless steel frets is also more than an off-the-rack product, just like the WSC staggered locking diecast machine heads, the Nu-Bone nut, and the Wilkinson 50II two-point vibrato. The electronics comprise two AlNiCo-5 humbuckers made by Roswell, which are complemented by a three-way switch as well as potentiometers for volume and tone. The latter allows the humbuckers to be split via a push-pull function, thus also making single-coil sounds possible, and the jack socket is ergonomically recessed into the side of the body.

Sounds to suit any style

The Fusion-III HH EB OCT is extremely flexible in terms of sound thanks to its two pickups, three-way selector switch, and the option of splitting the humbuckers. AlNiCo magnets also provide a vintage-style touch to the sound - from Blues to Hard Rock and Pop to Funk. Depending on the particular song and song part, you can vary the timbre and the degree of distortion. Locking machines heads ensure reliable tuning, while the stainless steel frets are characterised by minimal wear - so the instrument will last for many years. With a scale length of 648mm, 22 jumbo frets, and a comfortable C profile for the neck, this guitar relies on a tried and tested design. In combination with the contoured body with its double cutaway, excellent playability is a given.

Good guitar, small problems
Manos H 22.09.2022
Bought this guitar recently and used it for gigs since day 1. I am a professional guitarist and gig frequently. I own 19 guitars so I have a selection from customs to fend€rs to music m@n etc. This guitar is awesome for the money, the only criticism is the tone and volume pots, they are rather awful, but it is a very easy fix and will not cost a fortune. Don't read the headstock, play the guitar. Some of them are simply amazing! I understand that because of the mass production some models have problems, but trust me this has happened to me with guitars five times the price of these babies!

A Beast of a guitar with high end features!

I found mine to have superb quality, The finish is outstanding. The playability and action were spot on out of the box. As for the tone, well its a tone monster with those amazing Roswell Buckers in it. The features on this guitar well surpass its price. The best thing is everything works well together. But my favorite part is how well in holds tune with that Wilkinson Bridge. Just Wow. You can't go wrong with this one.

Wow - super Instrument ...
Heiko28 07.06.2022
... für den Preis!
Ich fang jetzt erst wieder mit Gitarre spielen an (nach ca. 16 Jahren) und hatte bisher eine ebenso alte Ibanez SA. Bin kein Profimusiker und wollt jetzt nicht unbedingt übermäßig viel investieren.
Aber echt man - was man hier für 299,- bekommt, ist absolut phantastisch.
Zuerst die Lieferung - Do. bestellt und am Fr. kam sie schon - klasse Thomann.
Die Gitarre selbst ist absolut wundervoll verarbeitet, hab nix entdecken können - und obendrein noch super eingestellt (hab nur die Seitehöhe etwas nach unten korrigiert).
Von der Konfiguration her war die Fusion II HH schon meine Wunschvorstellung, war mir noch nicht sicher bzgl. des Tremolos - aber nein, alles Bestens. Ich hab mir neue Elixier 10er aufgezogen und schon am nächsten Tag war sie stabil in tune, auch nach heftigen Trem-Handwerk. Es ist natürlich ein "Classik-Typ" - und duch die Begrenzung im Korpus sollte man keine Divebomb-Aktionen erwarten. Hab ich auch nicht.
Der Neck-PU gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut - ist kein Brillianz-Wunder aber sehr warm und voll - genau das, was ich wollte.
Der Bridge-PU ist für meinen Geschmack etwas zu dünn und scharf (nicht hot - beide haben eher niedrigen/mittleren Output) - am Ende ist das natürlich Geschmacksache, wer so was sucht liegt hier richtig.
Ich werd ihn warscheinlich durch einen Thornbucker ersetzen.
Aber hey - nochmal - dieses wundervolle Instrument kostet 299,-.
Zum Beispiel bekommt man auch noch wirklich gut funktionierenden Locking-Tuner, die sind nicht zu leichtgängig und sehr präzieses Tuning ist easy machbar.
Single-Coil-Split war für mich eine Wunschoption - da sollte man sich im klaren sein, dass der Output natürlich auch zurückgeht (es gibt Humbucker, wo das angeblich nicht so ist, diese kosten aber fast so viel, wie die ganze Gitarre). Für mich passt das so - spiele über ein Line 6 Pod Go - und hab mir für die Split-Sound entsprechende Presets gemacht. Aber die Vielseitigkeit der Gitarren-Sounds sind dadurch schon ordentlich - mir gefällt das.
Volume und Tone machen, was sie sollen - nicht zu leichtgängig - alles Bestens.
Der nicht hochglazlackierte Neck fühlt sich edel an und lässt sich herrlich leicht bespielen - fühlt sich wie ein "nach Hause kommen" an. Nicht zu dick oder zu dünn - hab ganz normale durchschnittlich große Hände.
Die Edelstahl!!!-Bünde habe ich noch (nur mit Radiergummi) kurz poliert, spielen sich fantastisch und ich hab auch bei ordentlich niedriger Saitenlagen fast null FretBuzz (für super high-speed Attacken sollte man sich ein anderes Modell nehmen - oder mit anderem Budget hantieren) .
Dazu am besten noch mal der Hinweis - das ist kein Metalbrett.
Das ist eher eine smoothe und sich easy und herrlich weich spielende Jazz/Blues/Rock-Lady - Fusion eben!
Danke Thomann - bin absolut begeistert - und die Farben sind der Hammer!

Kort och gott, denna elgitarr är den jag är mest stolt över av dom jag har. Bytte strängar till Ernie Ball 009, sen behövde jag inte göra mer än höja lite på den grova E och A strängen. Sen är det bara att spela och njuta...Tack Thomann!
