Only one disappointment with the purchase of this guitar and that is that I had hoped to get it before the shape changed! With that out of the way, I have been amazed with the quality of this guitar. Yes the angled neck has a joint, but it is well blended. The body I swear looks to be one piece, I can't find (see) any joints. Out of the box the setup was good, action, intonation, relief, no high frets, there was nothing to adjust, it plays great and sounds great. Need to spend more time with it, but simply unbelievable value for money!

What a great guitar!!!

I received SC550 Paradise Amber Flame today and after a few hours of playing with it Im in Love :) Seriously this is a GREAT guitar for the money.

Let me start with one negative thing first; one of the strap locks is not working so I asked Thomann to send me a new one (Im sure they will).

Back to positive;
These pickups are savage great! Man they are totally made for Slash. They articulate each string well and the tone is crisp and powerful. The 3 way switch is of better quality than the one I've got on my HB L-450 Plus. Also I find SC550 neck to be real easy to play. The tuners work just fine and the potties can be worked for desired sound, very sensitive.

Now about the AAAA Flame Maple Top :) Boy oh Boy what a beauty, I just couldn't believe it when I opened the box, it blew me away :) When I ordered this guitar I was a bit afraid that it might be too lemon yellow but its not, it is Amber/Ocher Yellowish a very rich and grounding color and the flame stripes man ... :) ah ...

The frets were polished and the rosewood fret board needed no oiling. The intonation is very close but will tweak it a bit. Action is ok but I might go a bit lower. There is a little buzz on the 6th and 5th strings on a few spots so will have to file down those frets but that is not a huge buzz :) so will do it in a week or so (I would not be able to live a day with real buzz issues).
Inlays are done very well.

Nice sustain on this guitar, but not as good as on the L-450+ .

The body of my guitar is made of 3 piece wood (yours could be 2 piece if your lucky). You can clearly see this when looking from the back where the "bridge" strap lock is. This is not an issue. The wood vibrates so nice when played I can feel it on my body, love that, its almost as if the guitar is alive.

I can just say one more thing about this SC 550 PAF :) and that is a MUST BUY

EDIT July 9th 2015; After the guitar settled in I discovered fret out beneath the 12th fret on a few frets so needed filing. Better but still needs a bit work. Im not playing cleans for now so can do but as soon I start clean playing again I will file them some more. The action is to Gibson specs so not that low but playable. These pickups are biting and are meant to be played in band situations where you need to cut through the drums but can be a bit overwhelming when playing on your own. The L-450 pickups are more pleasing to play on my own when practicing because they are much warmer, more vintage sounding. That said I still love these SC550 pickups, they sure can deliver.

EDIT; Im extremely happy with this guitar! Here is a tune I did with this SC-550 PAF and the Harley Benton bass JB-75NA https://soundcloud.com/papa-dusko/if-an-old-tree-trunk-could-talk

I am a hobby guitarist who likes to do my own work on the guitars that I purchase, I currently own 12 electrics, 1 bass, 3 acoustics and a ukulele.

I only ordered this SC550 because I wanted a premium Harley Benton LP style guitar. I didn't particularly like the Paradise Amber tops I had seen on You Tube, but I also didn't want another "burst" as I have a few already. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the carton as it appears I may have received a Lemon Drop (which were not advertised at the time of my order) instead.

Pros:
1. Weight relieved, yet still weighs in at a hefty 4kg!

2. The tuners work well and tuning stability is better than my real '13 LP Trad.

3. All controls and pick ups are working nicely.

4. Contrary to some reviews, the strap locks are working.

5. This might be my favourite top of all my LP type guitars (9 and counting). If the good people at Thomann don't remove this, you can search You Tube for"650Thunderbird" or "Harley Benton SC-550 Paradise Amber Flame Unbox/1st Impressions " to see for yourself.

6. Playability was OK out of the box, but it did require some minor fret levelling.

7. Appears to be a two piece body.

8. Even with postage costs, it is cheaper to buy from Thomann, than to buy from my own country (AU). This is one of three guitars I have purchased (all in one order) and their quality control, in my case, is second to none.

Cons:

1. Had some loose intonation screws in the bridge which caused some buzzing, easily fixed.

2. The top is probably closer to AAA than AAAA.

3. Frets needed minor levelling.

In summary: I am completely satisfied with this guitar and would recommend it to anyone, anywhere in the world.

Cheers
650Thunderbird

I sold a Tanglewood semi-acoustic and purchased a Epihone Les Paul 100 from Thomann with the proceeds. I chose this guitar over a Harley Benton guitar as I was sceptical: sceptical of the price and therefore the quality. However, going for a brand was a big mistake. The Epiphone was horrible - no matter how I tried I just could not get that vintage warmth I sought. Don't get me wrong, the guitar just wasn't for me and what I wanted to achieve.

So, after selling the Epiphone I sought out the opinions of several notable Youtube guitar enthusiasts and the hive mind of the various Harley Benton forums online and set my cap at the SC-550. The guitar arrived in the UK four days after ordering and was in perfect condition upon unpacking. The set up was perfect for me and it was pretty much in tune.

Firstly,it looks fantastic. Enough like a L** P**L to create that classic pose but different enough for HB not to get sued by Gibson! The hardware looks the part: the Wilkinson pups are beautiful, complete with engraved brand name; tone and volume dials feel solid and reliable; the treble and rhythm switch feel positive with just the right level of resistance and the tuners are very accurate. I closely inspected the body closely and can see no imperfections whatsoever. The scarf joint is barely visible and I unable to see any joins in the wood on the back of the body

The guitar is very easy to play and can be played right out of the box. Lead players may want to lower the action a little but it was perfect for me. The neck feels modern and all I had to was add a little fret board oil to make it perfect for me.

On a clean channel the bridge pup is very warm, providing a big sound. With the volume cranked up on the guitar, I can push my amp hard into a little natural overdrive. I'm not a metal player, preferring more classic rock sounds, which it delivers in spades with a little dirt dialled in and a tube screamer. TBH, I don't think I need a pedal as the guitar has so many great tones played au naturel. The neck pickup is slightly brighter, as expected and can deliver some really impressive jazzy runs with the treble cranked up on both amp and guitar.

The bottom line here is that you simply cannot go wrong. This is not a cheap guitar, it is an inexpensive one. It sounds like a guitar worth 10 times what I paid for it. Between the amazing customer service and Thomann and the quality of the guitar, what you are looking at is definite crowd pleaser.
