The Artful Dodger says:

This is just like Chappers and the Captain, except at the end they get up and march into Poland.

Gerry Loughran says:

More gear videos Thomann…you got great range of products and super deals, so ignore the stupid comments and get the show on the road…well done

JH Scofield says:

So sad in the States we can no longer order your guitars with rosewood.

Who doesn’t like chocolate? says:

SE sounded so cheap, old strings, or just a crappy sounding guitar, these YT vids are hard to judge, but through good phones, it sounded like a turd with a burst,if I plugged in the worst Japanese pawn shop clunker, I’d expect that never really tuned up..
and these guys have good amps,Mics..compression..EQ.. rather have a Dean in that price range,for a budget set neck..
Your video was great,felt like a room mic,not closely mic’ed cabs…more realistic, I liked it! Thumbzup!

powertothebauer says:

Diese Gibson Gitarre sieht aus wie ein Brian May Kopie

Julian Mannino says:

Really enjoyed the video. Listening thru an IPad speaker makes it tough to really judge.

Jeff Foster says:

the dislike was pressed in error. apologies

Andrew Hayes says:

Loads of surface scratches on that Gibson I hope that is a showroom model and not factory fresh

geminiFree says:

The Thomann web site says:
Sorry! The item Gibson Midtown Standard Trad. EB is not part of our current product range anymore.
Should be updated in the video.

tigerbalm says:

teles are more for rock n roll these days…some country players use it cuz they aren’t real country bands.

Chris Cuthbertson says:

I’m surprised there best selling guitar isn’t a Harley Benton.

Joe Guitar says:

Jungs, macht’s auf Deutsch. Die Suche nach Vokabular und der fürchterliche Akzent bringt weder dem deutschsprachigen Zuschauer noch dem native speaker etwas und ein zweites englischsprachiges Chappers & Captain braucht ohnehin niemand.

Pedals Fusion says:

Great video and fun too

Yoshiki G says:

I want that V

bubs barney says:

great video, but please check the tuning before pressing record

VirtualLife says:

Best selling is very diff then best guitars, should change the title. The Gretsch pickups look great, but the guitar is so dam big. PRS always has one of the best finishes, but the tone is most suited for jazz and Santanaish music, too soft. Tele has the most functional size and shape, if they would jst stop putting those defective design tri-saddles with ugly opened-can bridge plate. Seen some with nice shiny flat plates.

Che Guebuddha says:

C’mon Thomann! Show us the 5 best selling Harley Benton guitars 😀 for us poor working class people 😉

Itzzly Tlmyhd says:

Thomann, please! Let us know your Bossa Nova and Jazz samples, they’re really great.

Erik Gomez says:

Holy diver on the eppi was horrible that has to be down picked only!

Kok Chong Lim says:

hey guys, that chair is that? thanks in advance………..

Wolves says:

That Gibson Midtown sounded like tinny garbage

jake smith says:

great site. I have 4 out of your 5 best selling guitars. very cool.

john brown says:

just love the bugera v22 would love to see guitars demo through this amp

Poushal says:

Bought a Les Paul Less Plus with a defective G-Force system. Contacted customer service and was asked to hard reset the system. Did not work. JOKE.

Doug H. in VA says:

waste of time…. guys chit chatting and jacking off on guitars

J-Rod26 says:

I always wanted a PRS back when I was younger and used to play more often. Now I’m older and started playing again and guess what? I still want a PRS.

Ces McMyth says:

very nice video, but these guys seem to be so uncomfortable in front of the camera! have a drink guys or two! chill out!

steve spring says:

great tones, thanks. Tele’ versatility, all had good and clearly individual character!

The Doom Balloon says:

Me : what?..
