A Great guitar on a great budget

MrStark, 09.11.2018
So I was looking for a guitar with 24 frets and a floyd rose on a budget.
At first I was going for a Jackson rhoads, but I saw the specs of this guitar and I just had to try it out.

Pickups:
The pickups sound really well, a bit too strong on the Low-Mids but I don't dislike it this way.

Tuners:
They're grovers, on a guitar with a floyd :D

Tremolo:
A Floyd rose 1000, What a beauty.. This tremolo is really good, after a small setup (because I play in D Standard) It keeps it's tune really well, trust me, the first thing i did when I finished setting it up was going nuts with it like a grandma with parkinson's. It does it's job really well.

Frets
The Stainless steel frets came well polished and leveled, It doesn't seem like I will have a problem with them for a long time.

Cavities
Since i had to setup the floyd rose I had to open the cavity.
The wood inside looks really bad, chips of wood everywere, even a toddler could do that better. Not that for this price it wouldn't be a normal thing, however, for a guitar this good, I have to be picky about stuff.

Finish:
The yellow paint looks a bit blurred, but nothing that would be visible from a distance (let's say a stage, or your girlfriend / boyfriend :D )

Conclusion:
Buy it, now. Buy two, or even three. These are amazing guitars for a budget. Will definitely buy another one for another tuning.

I love it!

Bratt, 12.06.2018
I just received my HB sc-custom a couple of weeks ago, and haven't been able to play it alot, but first impressions are solid. I've used it for a couple of band practices, and of course home in my house.

To start with the negative, it's quite heavy. It doesn't bother me at all as I have a padded strap, but I can imagine someone would want a lighter guitar.

So, the positives. It looks and sound awesome. And although I was kind of sceptical to the Floyd Rose system, it works like a charm. It stays in tune very well, even when dive bombing, and the fine tuning knots works very well.
The sound is rich and clear, both in natural and sustain, and it came perfectly set up from Germany to Norway.

I will probably buy a sc-550 one day as well as I also need a new guitar with a fixed bridge, but no matter what, this one is a keeper.
