The quality you'd expect from a dearer guitar

Six Strings Soul, 18.04.2018
I pulled the trigger on this one after a fair amount of research, as I'm aware that any guitar bought from any online store can potentially ship with issues despite the "good name" of the product. I'm quite glad I took the risk with this HB DC, it's a fine guitar with no serious issues and impressive features. I expected a guitar with minor cosmetic flaws (it's a given at this price point) and I was right -some minor paint flaws here and there, the kind of stuff I don't care for and one can only notice if inspecting the instrument very closely. The things that matter -a good neck, decently dressed frets, no fret buzz, low action, correct intonation, nice pickups, solid hardware- it's all there. The nut wasn't properly aligned in the slot, but a few gentle taps with a small hammer fixed it (could have happened during storage or travel, no big deal). Took a grand total of five minutes to go from unboxing to playing and it sounds good on both of my rigs (one is my custom made pedalboard into valve amp and the other one just audio interface into Tracktion with vsts). It's a neck heavy guitar (the body is actually very light), you'll need to adjust to it if you play standing like I do but I quickly found out the way I keep my right arm on the body can actually counterbalance the weight with little effort. All in all, I couldn't find a better SG style guitar at a similar price point, the first comparable guitars being above the 400 euro mark. I'm very satisfied, I think I got more than what I paid for.

HB DC Custom Cherry

Christopher6076, 20.12.2015
This instrument is staggering for the money! The finish is beautiful, a translucent deep red that you can see the grain of the wood through. All of the hardware is good quality, the Grover tuners smooth and easy to tune with. Most of all, the sound is deep and round, the playability smooth and fast with a nice medium low action. I very much like the fact that it only has one tone and volume knob, less messing about and more playing! In fact, I have nothing negative to say about this guitar at all except and this is probably due to where I live rather than the instrument, it arrived perfectly set up but next day it buzzed like the devil. I adjusted the neck relief and it was fine but a few days later it happened again. I re-adjusted the action again and it has remained fine since. I should mention that I live up a mountain in northern Spain and the climate at this time of year changes temperature and humidity on almost a daily basis so not really a surprise that I had issues. I have Gibson's, Fenders and PRS?s in my collection and all the mahogany necks have the same issues when they first arrive, the Maple necks seem more tolerant. To sum up, this is a superb instrument and I recommend it to anyone.
