Hohner Limited Edition 2007 The Black Prince Guitar

Hohner Staufer - The Black PrincePublished on 02/24/22 at 16:47
Well this one was a real surprise. I saw this for sale online, not in my area, so would not be able to play it before purchasing. Tried to do some research on the background of it but was unable to find much information. Its made up of some pretty nice components so I thought I'd take a punt. When it arrived and I opened the hardcase, straight away I could tell it was a quality instrument. It's based on a tele body shape, a Supertele if you like, with a body of alder, an American hard Maple neck with a Rosewood fingerboard, Wilkinson/Gotoh VSVG tremolo, Schaller M6 locking tuners, hand wired Harry Haussel hot humbucker at the bridge position, two Harry Haussel hand wired Blues single...…

Tried to do some research on the background of it but was unable to find much information. Its made up of some pretty nice components so I thought I'd take a punt. When it arrived and I opened the hardcase, straight away I could tell it was a quality instrument. It's based on a tele body shape, a Supertele if you like, with a body of alder, an American hard Maple neck with a Rosewood fingerboard, Wilkinson/Gotoh VSVG tremolo, Schaller M6 locking tuners, hand wired Harry Haussel hot humbucker at the bridge position, two Harry Haussel hand wired Blues single coils in the middle and neck positions, 5 way switch, Dunlop Stainless Steel frets, German carve headstock, locking strap pins, mother of pearl dot fingerboard markers and really nicely done hand inlaid alternating ebony and maple binding on the body. There's a very comfortable tummy carve, and a nice recessed design where the neck meets the body allowing easy upper fret access. The body is gloss Black, while the neck has a natural satin finish. The guitar is quite heavy, not overly so in my opinion, and feels very solid and well balanced on a strap and comfortable sitting down as well thanks to the tummy carve.

It's a tele shaped body but it's set up more like a SSH Strat with the very good tremolo system and 5 way switch. Cool in-between sounds and I really love the neck pickup for clean but slightly dirty bluesy stuff. With the humbucker in the bridge it really is a very versatile instrument.

The neck is a beautiful piece of American Hard Rock Maple, I'd call it something like a modernish C-shape and is topped with a Rosewood fingerboard. Again, very comfortable to play all the way.

I've plugged this in to an old ac30 and my word, beautifully quiet powerful cleans and overdriven goodness. The tones from this make it sound like a bunch of different guitars. I've also plugged thru the clean channel of a V22 and played around with some pedals and these pickups did a great job there too. In my small apartment it goes into my THR10 and does the job very well. It's a great playing and sounding guitar!

-It seems to me that this guitar was manufactured in Germany does.
Channel 22 frets in rosewood Saddle plated I believe.
Bridge-Wilkinson VSVG.
-This guitar is equipped with a micro humbicker "Staufer hot" in the bridge position and two microphones simple "Staufer blues" in a central position and the handle.
- The controls are relatively straightforward: a tone for all 3 pickups, a volume Gnrale slecteur and 5 positions.
"I love the deco of this guitar in black SUV with chrome fittings and super binding tape made of alternating black and beige filmmaker hand. It's quiet but I find trsrussit.

UTILIZATION

In my memory, the handle is super enjoyable, as a strat if not more. CASC and relatively easy to acute severe heel of the guitar that t plane.
CASC at DIFFERENT button is very similar that of tlcaster. This is not the most ergonomic MODEL I find (especially slecteur position) for me after more accustomed to rglages stratodiens.
T filmmaker has a notch on the back of the instrument so that our stomach does not go abut against an edge when you play sitting (which is DIFFERENT from tlcaster). I played with is not standing but I do not m'inquiterai for any problem or another of BALANCING.

SOUNDS

I played this guitar on a marshall jtm 60 and a pedal OS2 (which began overdrive and distortion mit)

This guitar has more sound than a stratum of tl especially in the intermediate-position (logic would tell me you). Clearly, even when the sound is less crystalline than their counterpart at Fender or more in the spirit of the hot noiseless anyway.
I have not took the time to do cruncher is directly lgre party in overdrive and the "large" saturation (can go as far as my little jtm 60). It is very ais have a sound in the spirit of Gilmour (he had not a ton or effect as between the amp and guitar).

I am conscious of not having much dvelopp the party's type down and got all of his memories of my APRS 2 weeks ago.

OVERALL OPINION

I try 20aine minutes during TIPP. I have not really had time to pay attention to this beautiful guitar but I would have the opportunity to rerencontrer (I rewrites may be a more comprehensive review on occasion).
I find the look of this guitar really trsrussit: simple and unique at the same time. May be that everyone will not like even when.
I have not tried plthore guitar in my life (I'm young and its not super long as I put the guitar) but I can spend its time in trying in the Music Store share my home and it holds the road carrment rate of fender (he sells mostly its in my shop and I found irrelevant to talk about ibanez or jackson).
Regarding the report qualitprix, then the quality and I do not know how the owner bought her.
Without the exprience, I think I'll retry again.
