Great guitar for the price

14.03.2017
Really nice finish, mine was perfect, and very good looking.

The tuners hold quite well, the bridge is good quality, but I needed to seat it as it had come up from the body a little, no big deal, just a few taps and covered it with a cloth to not damage the finish. The nut is plastic, so I took it out and put in a bone nut, the standard LP style 43 mm nut fits perfect, and makes a big difference IMHO. After adjustment to my liking the neck feels very good, comfortable, slightly chunky, but not too much, very good and frets very well finished. The switch is OK, the pots are OK, not top notch, but certainly not bad, everything works, only slight problem was that one of the knobs sat high and looked a little off, I just took a bit from the inside with a drill bit by hand, problem solved.

Sound, dirty, it sounds terrific, clean, not so good to my ears, but that's just personal opinion, and as a long time strat player it may well be that I am just not used to it yet, but all in all the pickups are more than capable, and very usable.

All in all, for the price this is a great looking guitar, it really feels nice to play, and the pickups, although not to my taste on initial playing do a good job, I could change my mind on the pups, as I may just need a little more time with them, you are getting a lot of guitar here for the money. If you know your way around a guitar and can sort out the little minor things that need sorted, this is a hell of a bargain and well worth the price.

*EDIT* : I was considering replacing the pups due to muddy cleans on this guitar, but first I replaced the caps to .033uf orange drops, it made a world of difference. The cleans are sparkly now and the note separation is 100% better, with more control from the tone knob. I will keep the Wilkinson pups in, they now sound fantastic both clean and dirty, for only a few euros/pounds I would recommend this small upgrade, makes a very good guitar, great.

A surprisingly good guitar

ZoltanP, 04.02.2016
I was so pleased with the SC-450Plus I bought a month ago that I decided to also buy the SC-550. I am a bedroom guitarist because I actually have a boring dayjob, but I have stage experience and this guitar, as well as the other one, is perfectly fit for the stage.

I have a long list of first and second impressions which would be too exhausting here, but the essence is this:

Pros:

Although it is not specified in the specs, the guitar has a chambered body with shielding paint applied to the cavities. That yields tremendous sustain and feedback with no parasite noise. Awesome.

The large cutaway and the very nicely profiled neck heel give ridiculously easy access to the highest frets, and that's unparalleled on any Les Paul type guitar I have ever played. Awesomer.

On mine, unlike on the SC-450, there were no loose screws, no grossly rough or messy finishes, and all the hardware is sturdy and reliable, making the guitar a delight to play straight out of the box. Awesomest.

Cons:

There were some sharp fret ends here and there, and the 19th fret was high by half a millimeter so that needed a little bit of filing and polishing. Not-very-serious.

The wiring is different from the SC-450 and from any LP, SG or ES guitar I have ever tried in that in the middle position of the toggle switch, the volume pots still only control the respective outputs of the two pickups, and cutting out one does not cut off the whole signal. It's unusual but that's actually not necessarily a bad thing since it gives greater flexibility in the middle position. Not-very-seriouser.

The finish on mine unfortunately features quite a significant number of little black spots (fleck) on the burst of the otherwise beautiful flamed maple top veneer. Also some of the shielding paint from the cavities flowed over the edge of the surface of the back of the body. Having said that, from regular viewing distance it's nothing to lose my sleep over. Not-very-seriousest.

Last, maybe I find that the tone and bite of the neck pickup is a bit lesser than one would expect from a Les Paul style instrument, but that's a matter of taste.

Overall, if you are after a budget guitar with totally awesome looks, unbelievable playability, incredible sustain and powerful tone, and you don't need the flexibility of coil-tapping, then for this kind of money, there is no better deal I can think of. Maybe the SC-450Plus could be an even better bargain, but that one requires a bit of upgrading to get to this level, whereas the SC-550 will just rock your head off straight out of the box.
