Beast LP style
pajper, 29.05.2019
I own and play a lot on an Epi standard LP last 15 years, was my first and nr. 1 el. guitar. Played on a buch of different amps during that period. Guitar was sold, ended in my band for a short period, so now I wanted some guitar, LP the best, to have one and play at home or gigs from time to time, so not expensive one.

I wanted the SC450BK, but was not on stock, so I look up for this gold toppy beauty with open humbuckers (which always have sounded nicer to me as covered ones). I was really affraid for the extremely affordable price, but finally ordered.

It has arrived. First finish impressions were flawless, matt gold top looks freakin great, brown back is in perfect contrast with the top, amazing! Touch the neck to check the fretwork... what?! super great! Next tune it up, play unplugged a few chords - nice sustain, fits great in my hands, heavy (great for an LP and me), a blast! Then plugged through multieffect unit with amp simulation to the PA - HEEEY what the..., 5 times better then my Epi for 10 times this price. I am done.

Just a little cons: (thats why 4 stars)
It needed a bit of intonation tuning, after that I recognize that the nut is not place right next to the fretboard, there is a small tiny gap visible, so during the restringing I am going to move the nut, its just a milimilimilimeter. I am sure the intonation will then be supergreat.

...and ordering a tele style, another Harley (TE52) next month, as I always wanted that type too.

Good for the price but with a few QC issues
damo, 14.06.2019
The good:

pickups sound good. Finish looks great, frets are not sharp. Tunes and seems to stay in tune. Sustains like a monster even without any amp FX.

The bad:
a few QC issues which should have made it B stock,
very minor paint finishing marks where the side of the fretboard has been painted black but not completely.

Perhaps not quite as minor- the tuners are fitted really badly, on one side of the headstock rear they are kind of aligned, on the others they are what could best be described as higgledy piggledy, as in allover the place. The tuners work but they feel super, super, super cheap.

Overall, sounds good, looks nice but not in close-up, finish feels like some kind of powdered matte and when you move your hand over the top you can feel inconsistencies in the finish, like the coating was applied a little unevenly. A bit disappointed to be frank- I'll be returning it which is a pain in the neck.
