    I bought this last year, and still I'm enjoying slingin' this guitar. I'm thinking of changing the pickups, but then, I thought- why do I have to if I can still sound good on EMG select pups? I have fender teles and strats and jazz boxes, but on live I choose to play this axe(hohner), because it's easy to carry and is so versatile, compared to other guitars. The feel is excellent, I can emulate holdworthian-legato-runs. Great guitar! Keep it up hohner:-)

    This is a fun little guitar. Sounds Cool, Looks cool. The quality of the materials and manufacture is excellent. The setup is non existent, no real surpise. Most pickers can probably adjust string hight pickup hight and truss rod. The real problem was that the tremolo was binding so badly on the wood at the front edge that it was non functional! I first thought it was going to be a dremel tool job, but apon inspection I discovered that the fulcrum posts that thread into the base plate where not tight! Tightening cured 95% of the problem and I only had to shave a slight bit of wood at the front of the cavity to make the tremelo work perfectly.

    Quality Control plus Killer Tone

    By Grey-Bear

    from Denver, Colorado

    I own Several of these and have heard a dozen more... I can take one twenty years old it sounds the same as one built last week... Some think it looks like Harry Potter's Broom... It makes me grin because once you Play it or you Hear it you know it has Magic... How many Guitars can you play in the dark and know what it is by the Tone... Just don't let the secret out... I like to have a back-up guitar but in twenty years I haven't had to use it... Hohner made a guitar they call "The Jack" that has the exact same Electrics with a more of a Strat. Style Body so I have one of those plus my new G3T... The Best Of Both Worlds... My "Jack" is almost twenty... My Grandfather said it best you get what you pay for still works today...

    That's it!

    By Marian Rain

    from Germany

    Just as I bought it a fourtnight ago, I was pleased as can be by this guitar. Playing Fenders and Gibson for more then 35 years, I was eager to see, what this piece would do. Really great!!! Sounding like a Strat with the feel of a Gibson. Congratulations to Hohner. Competitive to all other "Headless" around.

    Swap the pickups out

    This is an awesome travel guitar! The neck is true and it stays perfectly in tune. Intonation is very easy to adjust and is perfect. very easy to play - I like my action low. I swapped out the pickups with some Duncans and it screams. The EMGs weren't too bad - if you have the cash it is a good idea to replace the stock EMGs it comes with.I like that the fret board is wide and flat - I love my Les Paul and the neck on this guitar is comparable. For the price it is a great buy!

    Overpriced

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    If this guitar went for 300 dollars less than the MF price it would be worth it. The paint is caked on (even though there was a chip), the strings buzz at the saddle despite setting it up, and the pickups are cheap EMGs. It seems fragile. There are better products at this price.

    Very good guitar for the mone except.....

    By j_dumars

    from Lansing, MI

    This gutiar is a sweet deal for the $$$. The stock pickups don't really need to be changed, I like the neck, and the hardware is good.*****EXCEPT******The volume knob is in in the WORST place ever. It is right in the way of your P.M. on the high e string. I know there isn't a lot of romm to put the knobs on this guitar, but it is in the worst place ever.

    Hohner G3T

    By Mr. Headless

    from Montana

    I've owned one for 10 years. It's my main axe and it delivers every time. Great sound, great action, awesome playability! Throw out the stock emg's though, they are sad. That is the only complaint I have, but who leaves stock pick-ups in?
