The best for the price (IMNHO)

Les W., 21.10.2016
First the nice touches provided by Thomann - D'addario strings and a battery, and also the strap locks and each Grover tuner wrapped in cellophane. Plus the whole guitar was very well packaged for protection against the elements and handling by the delivery services

This guitar looks better in real life, is nicely weighty, and feels immediately comfortable. The neck is great, no sharp fret edges that I got on a previous, lower cost Harley Benton Les Paul (but a minor issue), and the set-up needs little to no attention for my tastes.

The neck might be fast but it plays at the same speed as me which is a bonus. I am not 100% sure how much difference the active pickups make given the few controls but the sound is strong and can go raw or warm. If, like me, you use a pedal or two then the advantage of active pups is probably diminished.I guess that will differ by the equipment used.

I am really happy with this guitar and for the price and the Thomann service, I could not beat it elsewhere. It was delivered to the UK within two days of ordering, which again is excellent and at a bargain price.

My baby!

06.01.2017
I bought this after I returned one other very popular single cut lower budget guitars (let's not name it but say it is first on the single cut guitar sales list). The finish is definitely better on the latter one (even though I love mat on this one), but everything else far surpasses on this guitar. It is just incredible bang for buck.
You can say this is the perfect starter guitar if you love the active pickup sound. Clearly a copy of the ESP LTD EC-1000. I will have to play the latter one to compare them.
Active pickups, mat color, gold hardware, grover tuners, sturdy pickup switch, quality strings, useful pots, good nut, rosewood neck, strap locks, and so on and so on. Everything well put together and I couldn't be happier. Definitely better than anything else in it's price range and competes with guitar twice it's price (or so they say).

More than i expected!

Cory, 24.09.2015
I have over 20 Harley Benton guitars by now and they are all good - very good.

But this guitar is even better in my opinion.

The overall build quality is nearly perfect. the little imperfections are a joke if you look at the price. I had 1000Euro guitars with the same little imperfections and even more problems.)

After i lowered the action, i realised how well the fretjob is done. Its the lowest action i have ever achieved on a guitar without any buzz. almost too low...the guitar got a very light touch now.

The fretboard (ebonol) is black like ebony,feels like ebony and overall...if i didnt know...my guess would be ebony. Its really beautiful and feels nice.

The guitar is quite heavy,but not like a backbreaker. It feels very solid.

The Neck is a nice D-shapel,not thin,but not fat too. just right in my hands. together with the satin finish and the very low action it feels like a sportcar...its soo fast to play.

The sound is dark with a high sparkle and fat and tight on the bridge pickup.
It gets darker and more singing like on the neck pickup.

i couldnt stop playing after i get this guitar.

I can just highly recommend this guitar and will get more of the "custom"line.

Great looks and spec

Ballesteros, 10.05.2016
In short - some very minor finish imperfections on a decent sounding, playing and looking guitar that beats any other brand spec at or near this price.

Having played acoustic guitars for 15 years I felt like a change and dabbling with electrics. I did not want to invest too much money in an electric in case it was just a passing fad, however I did not want something unplayable that would be doomed to being given up on, and I needed something that looked good enough for my wife to approve it hanging on the wall since that's the only space left for more guitars. Fortunately she plays guitars too but there is still interior design to think about...

I love the single cutaway look but hate pickguards and am not keen on exaggerated burst finishes. So the SC-Custom Lemon Flame fits the bill well. I prefer the more LP style shape on the SC-550 but was not keen on the tiger-stripe appearance of the Amber Flame model, nor paying ~£60 more for what seemed to be almost the same hardware (the SC-550 Lemon Drop might have been better for me but appeared and disappeared from the Thomann site just as quickly).

On unboxing I was amazed by the quality of the finish. Having since joined the HB forums I now realise this is more the norm for HB rather than the exception, however this was my first HB so I wasn't accustomed to this level of value for money before. Before discovering HB I thought I had to spend in the region of £300 new or £200 used to get something equivalent.

After letting it acclimatise indoors for a couple of hours, the strings were roughly in relative tune just all approx a quarter tone flat, not bad for an international delivery in freezing winter weather!

Intonation was ok - not spot on but only requiring a little tweaking - quite reasonable given the change of environment.

The action is fine for me - it's lower than on my acoustics - but probably still a bit high for many electric players. I may adjust it down in future if/when I get around to attempting faster lead playing, but being accustomed to thicker strings and higher action on acoustic means it already seems a treat to me.

No problem with the frets. No buzzing, and the neck looks straight to me, so I haven't touched the truss rod. Tuners seem fine and the guitar stays in tune well for weeks despite spending most of its time on a wall hanger not in a case. Decent strings out of the box is also a bonus. I have 'dry' hands so my strings tend to last a long time, so it's nice not to have to decide between spending on replacements vs getting my money's worth out of strings I don't like.

I originally thought there was a wiring problem causing fuzzy noise when the tone control was turned up. It turns out that this was actually caused by my guitar lead - the same lead+amp is fine on my electro acoustic guitars and basses, but guaranteed noise on the SC-Custom. Swapping the lead for another solved that issue.

Fretboard seems rather dry to me - but I don't know whether that is expected for the ebonol fingerboard or not, either way it's just an observation and not actually giving me a problem.

Upon closer scrutiny I noticed a few imperfections in the finish:

1) There are three small flecks of dark brown on the top of the body, over the flame but under the lacquer, between the pickup selector switch and the fingerboard, presumably some sort of overspray or drip as it looks to match the brown of the back. These are tiny dots though - less than 1mm diameter, I didn't even notice for days.

2) There is a short imperfection in the binding around the 12th fret marker dots - the lacquer feels smooth so I think it is either a hairline split in the binding, or a stray hair got in under the lacquer! Again barely noticeable and quite acceptable at this price point.

3) The finish in the recesses under the volume and tone knobs is sloppy. Now I wouldn't expect lots of time to have been spent perfecting cosmetics that cannot be seen, however you can see that an attempt has been made to splash some colour in here so that from a distance the surface of the recesses match the lemon top.

- The problem is that a lazy job has been done and there is some white basecoat (/filler?) showing through that can be seen from some angles even with the knobs on! This is a shame given the level of attention to detail given to the rest of the instrument, and is the only real disappointment for me. But at least it is something I can fix easily enough myself, and doesn't affect sound or playability.

So one quality star lost for that, but overall excellent and a happy customer, and I already have several other Harley Benton instruments queued up in my wishlist for when space and funds allow :-)
