Unusual combination of features.
Gabell 23.04.2022
I purchased the HB MR modern, as soon as I saw the first photographs and read it’s specification, and on the whole I have not been disappointed. Locking machine heads, tusk nut, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, stainless steel frets, a Wilkinson 2 point tremolo and an Alder body are all premium parts.
The only unknown elements were the Artec AHC-90 soap bar Alnico humbuckers. I had never come across these, splittable pickups before and although I have now watched several YouTube reviews indicating that these are the weakest part of the package, being fairly cheap items if bought off the shelf, they do produce considerable variations in tone, with one criticism from me and that is the need to significantly increase the volume of the amplifier, if, while playing as a humbucker, you switch to single coil mode.
I hope Thomann release a different review showing the varying tones and uses this guitar is able to achieve, rather than just the “ Mossrite,” punk demonstrated on its release, as I think it limits its appeal....

It’s Amazing, but required a few tweaks
Neptune2181 30.03.2023
I first purchased this guitar back in October as i had always been a fan of the univox hifliers and Mosrites. When it arrived, the action was slightly high but after i put 10-52 gauge strings and then adjusted the truss rod, it’s been fine ever since. After playing a few shows with the guitar i noticed a high pitch hum in the bridge pickup, it was microphonic. So i carved out the bridge cavity and switched it to a high output humbucker and it has been amazing ever since. The tuners were also not holding tune very well but after switching these too, i finally have the guitar if my dreams

Cool take on an iconic guitar
Aidan! 02.08.2023
Everything is awesome about this guitar except the nut, which is a disaster: it’s off center toward the high E, it’s cocked backward leaving a gap, and there is glue seeping a centimeter down the first fret. Which is a bummer because the graph tech nut is one of this guitar’s selling points.

Also my push pull pot to split the coils makes a scratchy noise. Not a big deal on a cheap guitar but a constant irritation.

Other than that, the pickups sound fantastic, it’s got a nice-feeling neck, and it looks awesome.
