Firstly. Hats off to Thomann. They have always provided great service.

Now the guitar. . . . I put off buying this for weeks and weeks as I was unconvinced by all of the good reviews it had received. I eventually bit the bullet and thought if it isn't any good I can always return it. Well, I have to say that I was very surprised when I opened the box. The colour and lacquer finishes are surprisingly very good with only a small imperfection on one of the cut-away's at the binding. I was expecting it to be quite poor as far as the sunburst goes but it is really very good. The neck is nice too and the headstock finishes it off with a nice motif. I've owned a couple of Epi dots (vintage sunburst and blonde) that have not been any better. All of the tuners are in line, something I have seen on several reviews as an issue. The frets are well finished too. All of the electronics work fine. I only use it at home so I have no need for a massive sound and I don't use lots of effects. If it is going to be used professionally then the pickups may need swopping out. I changed the strings immediately for D'Adarrio 10's and set the neck relief and action to my liking.
There are some other minor issues such as a very dry finger board, comes up nice with lemon oil. The wiring loom is visible to through the lower F hole, no big deal. The pick guard looks like it has been cut out with a craft knife by a five year old, something else that comes up regularly in reviews. I always intended on removing it anyway. The body is a bit smaller than the original 335. It is probably in between an Epi Dot and the coupe. I have to say for just north of £100 delivered it is pretty amazing. I don't know how a guitar can be produced for this kind of money. The only disappointment is that I would have preferred it in the Cherry red, but I was not prepared to spend an extra £20 for the colour (not sure why it is more expensive), plus it was out of stock at the time I ordered. All in all I am very pleased. If you are having doubts, go for it, don't expect Gibson quality and you will not be disappointed. I may be tempted to try a HB acoustic shortly.

Arrived with a chipped head stock. Return from US to Germany a hassle.

I was a bit disappointed. The head stock was chipped when it arrived and I understand that can happen, however the packaging could be better considering the shipment was coming from Germany to the US. The frets were not polished up (a bit tarnished) as it looks like the guitar sat around in inventory for a while. I am returning the guitar due to the chip but if it didn't have the damage I would have had to do a complete fret polish and clean the fret board. The pick guard was so-so as well. The machining is not smooth. It almost looks like it was shaped by hand in a few areas. The ding, fret tarnish and pick guard quality are similar to issues I had with some AliExpress guitars. Also, the return process from the US to Germany is incredibly bureaucratic. Thomann has no partner agreement (corporate contracts) with any US carriers (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.) and this means shipments from the USA back to Germany are costly ($80 USPS International to Germany) and this has presented challenges in getting the guitar back to Thomann since they capped their return shipping costs at $60 (55 EUR); $20 lower than the actual cost to get the guitar back. I'm still working through a solution with Thomann. I'm hoping to have it resolved soon. The staff is very professional.

UPDATE: Thomann sent me an email letting me know I can keep the guitar and they will ship out a brand new HB 35 for free. That's exceptional customer service. Thank you.
