Amazing value, great looks, all while making all the right sounds
lwhealsie 27.07.2021
Firstly, I'd like to say, fantastic value. Absolutely incredible flame maple top and some great pickups in this thing. The single coil tones especially are nearly indistinguishable from a normal single coil to most if not all in your audience (I tested my family, I don't think they like me much anymore). It certainly sounded good through my old Laney. Tuners, as you'd expect, work great, never skip or fall consistently out of tune and the nut works as any decent nut would. Fretwork was good, nothing completely insane but not uncomfortable in any way. However, there were one or two things that did stick out to me, and those were the pots. Neither made the guitar unplayable, and it's still better than any other guitar I've played in this price range, but the volume pot was a bit crackly and the tone pot was very much an 'everything at 10, nothing at 1-9'. Having said that, it is still a great guitar and I would highly recommend getting one if the niche in your collection is open.

A Decent Guitar
Larry_A 14.09.2020
Pros: Looks great, ESP LTD body shape, 8 lbs, 5 oz (about 3.77 kg). Inexpensive…cost less than the Wolf WLP 750T 2020 seen on the Internet, and in my opinion this guitar is better (as I ordered that Allinone Wolf… and sent it right back). This is also far better than the poorly made SC-Custom II Vintage Black that I had received a few weeks earlier. The finish on this Lemon Flame is close to flawless, nice and glossy, so I guess the attention to detail was greater with this guitar than with the matt-finished Vintage Black despite all its gold trimming. This SC-Custom guitar model is also serial-numbered, which I guess is a plus. Finally the pickups are useable and the action is good.

Cons: The bridge is probably the cheapest the factory could get their hands on. I had to fight the larger than usual stiff screw heads with a larger than usual screwdriver to get the high E and B strings set up tonally, so I would say the bridge needs replacing pronto. Also the strings make a nice scratching sound against the frets when stretched so I think the fret material is somewhat cheap. This scratching wears away after a spell of usage, which might be saying something about the lifetime of the frets (and I’m using D’Addario EXL120 9-42)

All-in-all this is a good guitar, I’m satisfied with it. I’ve retained my faith in Thomann and may well purchase another Harley Benton in a couple of months time…this depends on if/when I get my refund for that SC-Custom II Vintage Black I sent back credited into my bank account.

Good singlecut for the money.
Yaroslav N 02.09.2021
Good wood. Good sound, but for heavy styles it is necessary to replace the pickups (weak output). The neck and body are thin and very comfortable. The playability is on top.
The workmanship is not very good - there are a lot of minor flaws: the rattle of the strings on the first frets, the paintwork with minor defects (especially at the junction of the top and neck). But in general, if you modify the guitar from the master, it is very good.
I would like to see such a model with 24 frets and dual action truss rod.
