A gorgeous guitar built solid from a trusted brand

The Hohner Essential Plus Folk guitar is built using a revolutionary technique Hohner calls Frequency Matching. Hohner's technicians use a form of tap tuning to determine the resonant frequencies of the woods and then match the solid Sitka spruce top with a similarly resonant mahogany back. Combining this process with a micro thin finish produced an acoustic guitar with a powerful, rich singing tone that makes even the small-bodied folk sound huge.

The Hohner Essential Folk guitar is also equipped with the Earvana Compensated Tuning System. This special nut and bridge assures that this guitar plays with dramatically improved intonation, up and down the length of the neck making it a pleasure to play. All Hohner Essential guitars go through a 12-point inspection process at Hohner's US facility to make sure every guitar is set up to sound and play great.

Best playing guitar i have picked up in a while

Comments about Hohner Essential Plus Folk Acoustic Guitar:

After reading the reviews for this little ax I found one locally and spent a little time on it. It had lots of pros but the cons, while minimal, were the deal breaker for me. It IS an incredibly easy guitar to play. Great size - very comfortable to hold. Didn't check intonation, as I play mostly open chords any way - but little triads sounded great up & down the entire neck. Very light - reminded me of my old Baby Taylor in weight and a little in tone - just not as rich but more balanced in the lows. Felt like playing an old friend - very low action up and down the entire neck - w/no fret buzz evident anywhere. Best $250 guitar I have EVER & I do mean EVER picked up. I also happen to like matte/silky finishes so that was actually a positive to me, but many do not share that opinion. Felt and played a lot like the lower end Martin's - only better (yes, really)! 2 deal breakers for me - 1 minor and 1 major. 1) I really want an acoustic-electric but that is easily remedied w/a cheap installation. 2) Buzzing on several strings at the saddle. Seemed like sympathetic buzzing when strumming medium - medium hard on several strings on a variety of different frets - especially the bass E, A, D. Wish there had of been several to try as it could have been an anomaly, but I despise buzzes and rattles on an acoustic. Try one if you find one - they play great! I will be willing to give them another try myself. I a/b'ed it w/a Taylor 114ce (unfair, I admit). The Taylor did sound a lot better, but it DID NOT play as easily (and it was well set up too). Just be sure to put it through its paces before buying!

Comments about Hohner Essential Plus Folk Acoustic Guitar:

Very pleased with this fine acoustic. Sounds really good..very resonant and "alive". Nice bottom end with crisp highs. Neck is great, very comfortable "C" shape. Love the smooth satin finish too. As claimed by Hohner, the intonation is spot-on thanks to the factory installed compensated nut. Fit and finish is great..not superb but quite good. Frets, fretboard, bridge an tuners are excellent. For the money, this guitar can't be beat!

Nice Guitar...

By Bubble

Comments about Hohner Essential Plus Folk Acoustic Guitar:

I have had this guitar a few weeks now and am really starting to enjoy it. String tension was kind of tight for a smaller guitar so I swapped them out with Elixer nano lights and it really opened it up. Surprising bass and clear mids. Plays well with capo all the way up the neck. Its size is a nice break from the bigger dreads and the neck is real smooth and has a easy reach for barre chords. Overall it is a very nice guitar for an affordable price.

Wonderful instrument!

By Matthew Shepherd

from Ohio

Comments about Hohner Essential Plus Folk Acoustic Guitar:

For the money, this is honestly probably the absolute best deal in a grand concert size guitar I've ever played. I'm in love with it.
The "perfect intonation" thing isn't a joke. Checked it up and down the neck with a chromatic tuner, and it's dead on. Action was good right out of the box. Beautiful sounding instrument. A little bright, but deep. Nobody ever could sell me on the earvana system, but I'm now a believer.
Very well built. Frets are nicely dressed and finished, and the satin finish looks and feels beautiful.
For the money, this thing is sweet. Not one complaint.


Hohner Got It Right

Comments about Hohner Essential Plus Folk Acoustic Guitar:

Claims of perfect intonation are not hype - all 6 strings on my guitar had dead perfect intonation at 12th fret and every fret on every string tuned green. Good setup out of the box... beautiful finish and tones. Insane value.
