What the guitar press has to say:
“AKUSTIK GITARRE”, Issue 3/99, test report by Wolfgang Niemann
“Unamplified, the guitar is surprisingly loud. High-quality tone woods produce a fascinating percussive sound enhanced by distinctively pleasant warmth. The guitar displays unbelievable dynamics, which facilitate accentuated, soulful playing. Notes and chords in the low ranges exhibit a virtually piano-like character and the highs have a pleasingly warm bite. The separation and sustain of the individual strings are excellent, so that even complex chord voicings are clearly defined and solo runs come across with assertion. The Jazz Supreme displays an impressive array of features and excellent craftsmanship. Simply put, it’s a class instrument!”
“Gitarre und Bass”, Issue 01/00, test report by Frank Haunschild, one of Europe’s most successful jazz guitarists
“The acoustic character of this instrument is overwhelming, and I don’t mean just the volume. All of the strings play very well, regardless of the position on the fingerboard, and sound very well balanced with superb sustain. The classic percussiveness associated with maple and the enhancing warmth of spruce reach their performance pinnacles in this guitar, which can be attributed to the very high quality of the tone woods. The two pickups blend very well together. The neck feels great. I strongly recommend this instrument for anyone who appreciates acoustic jazz guitars. Since the value is sure to go up on the Hahl Jazz Supreme de Luxe, it’s a very nice acquisition for collectors. A visual and acoustic treat!”.
