Tuners have a plastic cover and blue color is more dark fortunally.
The switch, unlike the usual one, does not move vertically, but horizontally, for now what I don't like are the shape of the dots, not because they are ugly, but only because I expected them as in star-shaped photos. The sound is slightly higher than the cst-24 blk (same pickups) but sharper so that the push pull is useless. Excellent sustain just above that of solid body. I like the weight maybe a little light I continue to investigate as always thomann surprises, this time not in the construction but in the diversity of what it shows. However i think that price 225€ is to hight for this model (i pay 169€ in black color and 199 with p90 good sound)
Plastic covers? Are you sure they are not just little circles of protective film? I'm sure they will be. Peel 'em off...ooooerr!
I always think horizontally makes more sense because it means the toggle is facing the pickup it is referring to. However, If you don't like it or find it awkward you can rotate it a bit to suit your up 'n' down choice. It helps if you can get at the back of it mind you. Do you mean the blue is not as bright as in the photo? That's a shame. That's what turned my head.
I have Roswell pick-ups. I like a clear sound. I barely ever use my SC-450 Plus in standard position.
All pictures showing inlays were removed from the product page at Thomann and the description was edited to "Fretboard inlays: Mother-of-pearl dot". This happened quite some time ago, when the Charcoal model already had pictures of a Jatoba fingerboard with dot inlays.
I measure the thickness of the neck, yes, from back to fingerboard, no frets. Shape also plays its role, of course. I like a flat neck more than a round one, D rather than C, I suppose, but… I don't care all that much actually. I've been fine with anything I had so far.
Thank you for info, but i don't like decals, while found low professional from thomann don't put real image if you have time to change with "similar image" can make with real photo. When you make a choice color e special feature are important especially in cheap guitars, i think. Than for this model "mother of pearl dot" for blk or ocean "pearloid dot" but for me is always the same. Also freatborad "ocean" and "tortoise" are jatoba but on my change color (fortunally on tortoise i like it but on "charcoal" is orribile. I like this last my buy for body aspect less for sound too similar single coil (but no fender sound) and a other questione why is your wiith so light ? (compared with your)
With a ruler I measured 11.5 cm between the f-holes, then I stuck my fingers in them until I felt the block, measured the length of finger that went in and subtracted. Not very accurate but if the weight difference comes from there, the block will have to be much smaller.
