This is truly a great guitar, but there are few things required to get its real potential. First of all retainer must go immediately, just do it the first thing you pick the guitar out of the box. Second thing is much more complicated - I found out that pickups completely do not work for me. They sound just wrong, weak and generally unpleasant, though soldering is very solid. I replaced them with mix of SD and EMG actives, but your mileage might vary. Otherwise I also installed cheap rolling string trees and straplocks I got from Thomann alongside with guitar, lubricated nut, replaced stings to 9-46 (though original strings are very much ok if you are into 10s) and set up every. Also oiling fretboard is a good and inexpensive thing to do, mine was dry, which is not good for ebony. This might sound like a lot of to do, but in fact it is not, apart of pickups if you are not used to solder. Now, what is great about the guitar:
- smooth C-shaped satin neck
- very well set and polished stainless steel frets
- good tuners
- flawless finish and routing, better that some much more expensive guitars
- good two-point tremolo

Very playable guitar
Dapapa, 07.11.2018
First the issues;
1. Pickups are not the best sounding, lack Low end and Dynamics ( but the elecrics are very tidy and give out no hiss or hum what so ever, well done)
2. there was a 2 mm gap between neck and body. I have informed Thomann about this and they have sent me a replacement guitar (great service as usual Thomann, well done)
3. the Reatainer Bar must go! As soon I use the tremolo arm the strings go out of tune (one can hear strings squeeling over the retainer bar when tremolo is in use). HB should rectify this and use string trees instead!!! I see others on you tube noticing this issue, like Cory Mura for example)
4. The Nu-bone nut works fine without any buzzing but the action on the nut is a bit too high. Not much but certainly could go down a bit on the Low E and A strings.

Good things;
the D'addario string were NOT rusty on this one, which was usually the case on those HB guitars I bought in the past. These strings are spanking new! Well done HB!
Locking Tuners work fine!
The neck is just superb (fast, satin, and easy to play), Love the Ebony fretbaord (was dry but I oiled it so now it looks the business) Frets perfect all the way! Body finish too! This bridge has a heavy trem block, not that thin that we usualy get with those cheapo strats. The bridge saddles seem to be made of Aluminum! This bridge maybe no name but it sure looks and feel Pro!
Love these new strap pins!

This guitar is not heavy, around 3,5kg!

Yes I do recommend this guitar to not just beginners but also those gigging live! One gets a lot for the money in this axe!
