The amazing HB 35 plus
20.03.2017
I'm so happy with this guitar, it was a gift from my Wife to help me sit up after 4 Head and neck cancer operations.. I had to sell my Strat and Tele to keep going financially which broke my heart but This helps make up for it.
Last week I sat up for over 60 Minutes after getting lost just playing it. First time in 2 years.( I paid for it later - worth it!! )

Everything about it feels good. It's superb for playing blues and rock and it come to Me set up exactly the way I like it. I can't see any finish issues except for the pickguard which I just removed, and the sound is great through my line 6 pod II. I wouldn't change a thing.
It's really worth springing for the plus as the split coils add another dimension to the tone. It's worth every penny and much much more. I haven't received any payment for this review, I just wanted to share my experience. If you, like me just play for fun and like to bend the blues this ones for you. Great Job Thomann and thank you.

The hype is real!
Bud L., 29.12.2018
So many positive reviews online for the HB-35 plus led me to take a gamble on one. I am so glad I did. I played a lot of semi hollows at shops over the past couple of months after I caught the bug to get one, particularly "budget friendly" models in the $300-$600 price range. This guitar is superior to any of those in my opinion. Factoring in the incredible price of the HB and it's a no brainer. If you want a semi hollow, but don't want to pay the premium price for a headstock logo, get this one. You won't regret it. Fit and finish wise, my guitar came out of the box looking fantastic. No blemishes on the body or neck. The paint job is gorgeous. Frets feel smooth, no sharp edges. No buzzing or dead spots. Even the pick guard on mine is good (most common issue on youtube reviews...seems thomann was paying attention!) The only issue is on mine there is some black residue on the binding up the fretboard, but it looks like it will clean right off. The fretboard is pretty dry, but that's understandable considering it just travelled from the other side of the globe. The tuners work okay, but I put locking tuners on all my guitars so they were getting changed anyways. Set up out of the box was perfect for me, action was at 2.0mm on the low e at the 12th fret.
Tone wise, the roswell pickups sound pretty good so far. I haven't spent much time with it yet, but first impressions are good. The coil split feature is a nice touch giving this guitar a bit more range than the average entry level semi-hollow.
The electronics feel pretty good. Volume knobs are easy to turn and the push-pull feels sturdy. Tone knobs offer slightly more resistance, which I kind of like anyways. Function of all 4 is smooth and consistent, no jumps or drop offs as you roll back/up. The 3 way switch and output jack both feel fine, shouldn't be any issues there.
I went in to this thinking, worst case, it would make a decent mod platform, but other than locking tuners I don't see the need to change anything. This is really a great guitar, regardless of the price. The price just makes it a no brainer. If you're considering it, just buy it. Before Thomann comes to their senses and raises the price!
