I recently reviewed my Cherry version of the HB-35Plus, and now I will talk about my Vintage Burst. Of course, some of the review will be quite similar, but there was a difference outside of cosmetic, which I will get too. On with the review?

As I mentioned on the Cherry, this shipment of guitars and pedal took only 7 days to get here. This is from Thomann, Germany?to the central US. (Missouri) I have ordered in-country things that have taken longer to receive?I can?t explain it, but I love the fact this got here so quick!

A lot of folks in the US worry about the condition of their shipment. I guess the travel takes a toll on some orders, and I even know of a few instances where guitars were damaged. Everything arrived in great shape. No complaints at all!

Now, let?s talk about the guitar?

The looks?well, what do you expect? It?s a beautiful guitar. I?m a sucker for sunburst/vintage-burst guitars. This is beautiful?BUT, I don?t know why, the Cherry one I ordered seems to catch my eye a bit more. Something about it, with the shape?just looks better. But that is totally opinion?and nothing more. This sucker is still beautiful.

The neck on the HB-35 is different than what I am used too. It?s a thick neck, but not particularly wide. With the exception of one guitar I own, which has a rather wide neck, everything I own has a much smaller neck. I?m getting used to this bigger neck rather quickly, and I do like it. Bending strings feels like waving a magic wand, and I love it.

One BIG difference between the Vintage Burst and Cherry from this order?. I mentioned how the cherry might need some work on the nut. The open strings stayed in tune. The higher notes stayed in tune?but for whatever reason, the Cherry had some problems with the D chord. It always sounded sharp. The vintage burst didn?t have this problem at all. In fact, the action was a bit lower, and I didn?t find one problem while playing. Even while jamming acoustic, the guitar sounded beautiful.

The switch/knobs/bridge/tuners all work great. I haven?t found one problem with any of it.

Lastly,the Pickups/Coil-split... I absolutely love the neck pickup. It nails that hollowbody blues tone that I want to solo with. For me, it?s magic. The bridge pickup is fine. It works for chords and I don?t have any problem with it. As for the single coils? it?s a bit thin for my taste. I did hear some strat like tones?but I don?t play a hollowbody for that. Still, that?s an opinion thing. You may absolutely love it!

Overall, this is an amazing guitar. It?s beautiful. It?s affordable. It feels solid. It?s worth the money and then some. If you are looking for a good hollowbody guitar, you need to try one of these before spending a fortune on a big name guitar? you may find this as the instrument you are looking for!

.
First off, I live in the US. Missouri to be exact. I?ve heard several horror stories about the length of shipping, and the condition of the package upon arrival. This was in the back of mind while waiting on the order.

However, in this instance, I can?t complain at all! I was extremely happy with both. Shipping from Thomann, in Germany, took 7 days. 7 days! I?ve ordered stuff in the US that took more time to travel across only a few states. Also, there was a national holiday during those 7 days. Amazing!

The condition of the box? I?d give it 4 out of 5 stars! It was fine. The corners were rounded a bit?but nothing on the box was torn up. The order was completely fine.

Now, let?s talk about the guitar?

This is my first hallow-body electric guitar?so, I won?t be able to compare it to others. I know that?s a bummer, but I still have some strong opinions about this instrument.

The look? 5 out of 5 stars! This guitar is absolutely beautiful. No flaws in the finish. The 2 pieces of AAAA flamed maple top match each other great. There was no scratches on the guitar anywhere. As an added bonus, the rosewood fretboard had a beautiful black/brown color. Sometimes, the grain can make the guitar ugly. In this case, it works beautifully. I love it. It?s a unique piece for sure.

The Neck? Undecided, but it isn?t bad. The majority of my guitars all have small/narrow necks. This one feels thick. I have a Brian May replica guitar that has a thick neck, but this one feels different than that. The BMG is wide, while the HB-35 is just thick. I like the look of it, but my hands aren?t use to it yet. Haha? a lot of my chording isn?t sounding very good right now because of this. But it?s just an adjustment I will make. The neck itself is straight, and looks good. I can?t complain?the thin strings made bending easy and fun, and for blues playing, that?s great!

Action/intonation/nut/bridge? 3 out of 5 stars. The action isn?t bad?but it?s a little bit higher than I like. I will have to do some adjusting. I can do simple stuff, but I found a bit of a problem. When playing the strings open, it?s in tune. But when I make a D chord, a couple of those strings shoot out of tune and the D chord sounds bad. As I work my way up the neck, the tuning corrects itself. Off hand, I assume the nut is going to need some work. Maybe the string grooves need to be sanded down a bit more?

The frets are all smooth, and I don't hear any string buzzing. Awesome!

Switch/knobs? 5 out of 5. No problems at all.

Pickups/Coil-split? 4 out of 5 stars. I absolutely love the neck pickup. It has that blues sound from a hollow body that I want, and I?m in heaven with this setting. The bridge pickup is fine. I?m going to try raising it to see if I like it better. It works fine for chording and pick?n. As for the single coils? it?s a bit thin for my taste, but I did get it to sound like a strat while playing some Jimi tunes. Who knows what the future will hold, but I don't know if I will using the single coil setting much. I just prefer the sound of a humbucker on these type of guitars.

Overall? I will give this 5 out of 5 stars. This thing is absolutely beautiful, and is so worth the money. Once my fingers adjust to the neck, and I get a few kinks worked out with the nut, I?m going to be using this live. I have the option of moding the guitar, but for now, I don?t see any reason too. Thank you Harley Benton for another amazing guitar!

This is my first semiacoustic electric guitar, having owned many solid bodies. And it ticks absolutely the right boxes for this sort of guitar.

Lots of people have commented positively on the appearance of the guitar. It has a subtly-transparent finish, which shows a pleasant amount of the wood grain.

There were no serious issues with the appearance of the guitar. The pickguard isn't cut brilliantly, and the fingerboard was gluey and dry but those are not significant issues to me.

Out of the box, the action wasn't great as set up but once it settled down at the right temperature it played very nicely with no problems.

This guitar is first and foremost meant for blues and jazz. I've enjoyed the rounded chunky tones for a bit of bebop and blues playing. But most of my music calls for pop/rock sounds with a bit of overdrive. And I'm really pleasantly surprised at the clarity, warmth and strength of the sound when going through some overdrive and even distortion pedals. It's never going to be intended for metal but in a power trio, it has enough meat to make a broad, chunky sound.

I normally like pickups which are a bit hotter, more open sounding and a bit brighter over more vintage styled ones. This is a contrast to that, but a very pleasant one.

The coil split is fun and useful for tonal variety. Don't expect it to replace your strat or tele but it provides that little bit more flexibility than other models. I started one live song with the coil split on and was able to push them in for a more driving sound during the chorus which was very satisfying.

Tuners seem good. I'm not sure there's much more to comment on. If you're looking for this style of guitar, with a dollop of versatility and a great price point, this is an excellent choice.

General consideration: sound is very nice, pickups are very hot, red finish is quite nice, surface is very polished, neck comfortable, no fret buzz. For this price you cannot find something better.

Two things to do after you receive this guitar:
1. Check the surface for any defect. Sometimes it happened. If is not major...you can live with it.
2. Check the distance between 1st string and the edge of the neck. Should be the same with the gap between 6th string and edge. If is not sensible the same, send the guitar back. Fortunately I haven?t find any fretbuzz and also the neck was very right.
Nine things to do if you want to improve your guitar:
1. Polish the frets ( with very fine sandpaper and polish compound). The frets were not properly finished by factory so bending technique was not quite possible.
2. Evacuate the wood debris from inside acoustic chamber (mine has 2 pieces of wood inside). This in not a major issue.
3. Clean the fret board wood and oil it with lemon oil. Mine was awfully dirty!
4. Adjust string high. Use a ruler.
5. Recut the pickboard since the initial one was made awful by factory. Polish the edges at 60 degree. Try not to polish fast since the heat is destroying the resin material. You need a file, fine sandpaper and some skills. I prefer the original ES 335 shape.
6. Grease the pots.
7. Tighten the machine head. Mine was not too stabile.
8. If you have some skills you can make a new truss road. The original one is silly.
9.Adjust the tension in strings by increasing/decreasing the angle of strings over the saddles.
Tune the guitar, play and enjoy it....if you are not too tired. After these steps you?ll have a very good guitar for this price.
