Eine wirkliche Super-Strat mit kleinen Ecken und Kanten
Rettex, 12.08.2020
Ich war auf der Suche nach einer bezahlbaren Strat die bestimmte Anforderungen erfüllt, die man oftmals nur von teuren Geschwistern der CustomShops kennt.
Der Hals ist roastet und damit - meiner Erfahrung nach - wetter- und witterungsbeständiger. Damit muss man die Gitarre sehr selten nachstimmten. Das Griffbrett hat einen Radius von 14" was natürlich sehr schön für schnelles spiel in den hohen Bundlagen ist. Die Locking-Mechaniken sind super und das 2-Punkt-Trem funktioniert auch super und ist sehr stimmstabil.

Nun zu den Ecken und Kanten:
Der Tremoloarm lässt sich durch eine schraube beliebig fest ziehen, jedoch lockert er sich relativ schnell wieder und steht nicht dort wo ich ihn hinterlassen habe.
Die Bünde sind nicht sehr sauber verarbeitet, da muss man vielleicht nochmal selbst handanlegen und sie bündig zum Hals feilen.

Neutral:
Das Coil-Splitting am Humbucker funktioniert an sich super gut. Wer hier allerdings einen klassischen Single-Coil sound erwartet wird enttäuscht. Zur schnellen variation von Höhen durch das das Coil-Splitting und für die Soundvielfalt ist es jedoch super.
Die Tonabnehmer sind alle relativ Low-Gain. Jedoch kann man mit der Gitarre auch härtere Stilrichtungen bedienen und auch Drop-Tuings sind problemlos möglich.

Alles in Allem ist die Gitarre für den Preis wirklich sehr empfehlenswert und durch das ein oder andere Upgrade bzw. den ein oder anderen Feinschliff kommt man sehr nahe an die Qualität wirklich teurer Gitarren ran.

Ich würde mir die Gitarre jederzeit wieder kaufen!

Una guitarra con un sonido de mucha calidad a buen precio
Gustavo Martín, 16.04.2021
El sonido de esta guitarra es muy concreto. Tiene una personalidad muy especial y diferente a otros instrumentos con la que se puede conseguir un sonido muy parecido al de Nick Johnston. Se trata de una stratocaster moderna con un sonido muy limpio y con personalidad. La pastilla humbucker no es una pastilla de gran salida o ganancia y puede dividirse. Cuando suena en modo simple el sonido es cristalino y de mucha calidad, en modo humbucker se consigue un poquito más de gain lo que da un resultado precioso. Con la pastilla central sin mezclar con otras pastillas se consigue un sonido muy puro y muy strato. La pastilla del puente es sencillamente espectacular. Tiene mucha salida con unos medios y graves muy controlados. Suena espectacular.
No me convence la segunda y cuarta posición del selector de pastilla, es decir, al mezclar entre ellas. Parece que pierde volumen y el sonido no es del todo nítido, aún así suena de manera aceptable.
La construcción es robusta. La guitarra pesa. El acabado y la construcción en general es muy bueno.. Los potenciometros son de un plástico con una calidad muy mejorable. No me convencen.
El mástil es de lo mejor que he podido tocar en mis 35 años como guitarrista. Muy cómodo, suave al tacto y muy bien hecho. El radio y el diapasón hacen que se toque de maravilla. La guitarra afina perfectamente. Los trastes están muy bien construidos. La cejuela es de gran calidad y aporta una tonalidad y vibración muy especial. El clavijero de bloqueo es muy eficaz. No desafina, mantiene las cuerdas muy afinadas al igual que al utilizar la palanca del puente, no desafina.
Esta guitarra suena como una guitarra 3 o 4 veces más cara. Si quieres una guitarra de calidad y con un muy buen sonido, esta es una gran opción. Relación calidad/precio espectacular
