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.

Better than anything twice the price by far.

Tomdameek, 25.04.2018
Straight up you will not find a better guitar anywhere for this price. In fact it?s worth so much more. The guitar came excellently set up. There was no flaws and the action was beautifully low with perfect intonation. I adore the finish, it?s got that ahh factor when I open up the case. The Roswell pickups are perfect for rock and blues and I can get a great Ac/Dc sound out of it. An extra pleasant surprise was the smooth quality of the tuners. They feel the same as my top of the range Takemime acoustic. All round it?s a great solid guitar and My second Harley Benton. As usual delivery was prompt and in perfect condition. Thanks Thomann you never let me down.

I can?t think of any cons it?s got no blemishes. If I want to be picky the fret dot markers are a bit off center but I think that?s on purpose as my HB 35 plus is the same. The neck is a bit heavy but I?ve played the real thing before and that was the same.
So to sum up, get it you won?t be disappointed.
