Hohner Rockwood ST-59 Reviews 4

This is a second hand guitar that I bought. It was my first, and I got the full deal.. leather strap, plectrums, leads, amp.. all for about 100. The amp I got with it is a Ross RG10, check out my review for that cos thats immense!!

I think its a great first guitar, and I still have it, mostly using it for different tunings and keeping my other ones in standard tuning. Its got a nice feeling to it, it just feels really solid. Ive played a lot of guitars and I still like to have a go on my old hohner.

To be honest its quite heavy, one of the most heavy Ive played. Its also quite worn and the vibrato system is getting a bit worn.

Its nice and sturdy, has a bolt on maple neck so like i said.. its heavy. But thats not all that makes it heavy; the body is thick and strong, it gives a nice tone. But then again, its another strat copy, so cannot live up to the realy thing... im not bothered because I hate Strats!

nice first guitar, good to have around. Solid build, nice tone.. etc Basically, I dont need this guitar so much because ive moved on to bigger better ones.. kinda. Nevertheless, its still my old guitar, and would never want to get rid of it.
