What the guitar press has to say:

Masterpiece – Hahl Jazz Supreme De Luxe Blue Diamond
“GITARRE UND BASS”, Issue 9/03, test report by Heinz Rebellius

“It was a good while before I could finally bring myself to plug in the cable, so fascinating is the acoustic sound of the Blue Diamond, which is much more intricate than that of your typical jazz ax. Lively dynamics, stabile sustain, transparency and resonance are united in this guitar to an extent that is truly unique. Amplified, the superb acoustic qualities of the instrument reveal themselves – even when only the Gibson humbucker is on – with clear definition and transparency, always accompanied by the full tonal richness that every jazz guitarist dreams of. The goal was to create a jazz guitar with excellent acoustic tone, one, however, that could be used, with a humbucker, as a “regular” jazz instrument. In this respect, the Blue Diamond far exceeds all expectations.”
