Love it, better as i expected!
You can't get this v from gibson anymore*, but the HB is great fun!!!!
*Well..now they have one for 16 x and one for 34 times this price...

Good looks, plays well, frets are nice, good electronics: pots turn nice, switch is ok, , sound is really great: blues, jazzy, rock...(All on a full tube Marshall and a handbuild 5 watt tube job )
Had to do some set-up of course, not much. Looks as Thomann has a really good quality control, at least with my 2 guitars.
Will have to give the fretboard some oil treatment, but not yet: the strings are in good condition! * well after half a day i oiled and cleaned the neck and put 010 d'addario's on. Way better.
The nut is a tiny bit wrong, not a big problem, i will change it in time. You can't have it all for ?99, Edit: the nut has settled in now. ok.
btw: Humbuckers are open, with sort of silk tape protection. Might be like the real thing.
* after checking the internet: originals look the same. Plastic protection foil took a long time to get of, broke a pot trying to get a volume knob of... Lucky i had a 250K spare :( (yes, they are 250K)
For home use it's lots of fun. will probably try it with the band, but with a flashy axe, you have to play really well :)

It's not as heavy or massive as a mahogany Gibson of course, rather lightweight. Better not bump into things, but it plays well sitting or standing.

EDIT:
I changed the stock pot for 500k log ALPS, large.The capacitor for a 0.22 (mallory), the toggleswitch for a gibson switch, the input plug for a neutrik (Switchcrafts is really good too)
More dynamic sound, since it was original 250k and 047.
The nice knobs fit exactly on the ALPS, had to clear the holes for the pot a little bij hand (8.5 drill)
Volume replaced to the long side, tone nearest to the bridge.
Damped the pickup cavity with old foam my telephone came with.

This one is now such a great guitar!!!! And the humbuckers are very good indeed. ;)

This one is different but just as nice as the more expensive HB gold top/P90. And that is a really good guitar.

i'm still having fun, from T-rex to Metallica ;)
Are there no bad things? No, not for this price. Wishes: the highs notes, 20 fret and up on the e and b string don't sustain as long as my 35 year old strat.
Long enough of course, and with a pedal you won't notice it at all. The neck and tuners had some trouble with the hot weather last month, but are settled in nicely.

Musikhaus Thomann customer service is top notch. Other companies wish they had the Thomann staff. The guitar itself is good with some minor manufacturing flaws that I will go over in brief and include possible solutions for those who purchase the instrument. Keep in mind that it is entirely possible that mine suffers from these problems but yours may not.

The Action. When viewing the guitar from the side, the neck is set too low. This creates a high action even with the bridge flush against the pickguard. To remedy this problem you will need to cut a hole in the pickguard under the bridge, in the shape of the bridge, to allow it to be lowered further. Alternatively you could shave the bottom of the bridge so it is flat. If the neck were set roughly 4mm higher (when viewed from the side) this problem wouldn't exist.

The Bridge. Speaking of the bridge, the bass side is set too far away from the neck, making it virtually impossible to intonate the three low strings (e, a, d in standard tuning). A solution is to remove the bridge saddles on these strings and flip them around, which will give you a little more room to move them toward the neck; remember to remove the black washers from the inside of the bridge with a pair of tweezers first. If the bass side of the bridge were positioned 2mm closer to the neck this wouldn't be a problem in the first place.

The Tailpiece. Because of the problem with the neck height, and ultimately having to set the bridge flush against the body of the guitar, the angle of the strings between the bridge and the tailpiece is poor. I'm considering feeding the strings through the tailpiece in reverse and wrapping them on the under side to improve the string angle to the bridge.

Despite these flaws I am very happy with my purchase and if I had to do it over again I would not hesitate to buy it. I absolutely recommend this guitar, it kicks ass, just be prepared for some minor flaws that you will need to find solutions for or just learn to live with.

Thanks, Thomann!
