Non-existent QC

650Thunderbird, 13.06.2017
I am a hobby guitarist who likes to do my own work on the guitars that I purchase, I currently own 16 electrics, 1 bass, 3 acoustics and a ukulele.
Very Disappointing:
5 way switch was working at first, then gradually deteriorated (Thomann authorised refund for new switch and fitting)
Tone pot crackling, needs new electronics. Pots affecting sound of pick ups, hopefully new pots rectify this.
Needs major fret levelling.
Frets were cut unevenly (length of frets).
High E string catching under frets (poor installation of frets).
A Little Disappointing:
Small blemish in top.
Fret markers not aligned with strings.
Side fret markers sloppily applied.
Good Points:
Tuners OK
Trem system OK (holds tune)
Strings OK
Neck is good
If the good people at Thomann don't remove this, you can search You Tube for "650Thunderbird" or "Harley Benton ST-57DG Black Tribute (Strat) Guitar Unbox/First Impressions " to see for yourself.

Easily my second best

22.12.2016
Breaking it down into the categories that Thomann does first being the features. The Tuners are great they really are and the trem system works fine though the trem arm has to be in purdy tight for it to sit still. The neck is satin and there's no gloss on the fretboard like yer older fenders. The nuts not plastic it seems more like a Tusque or bone nut not entirely sure it aint plastic though and the only real drawback which is the cavity for the truss rod... its fugly like its just a hole... a dirty hole.
Secondly the sound and this'll be mainly the PU's but they aint flat but they aint fat either it's kinda really subjective but this aint the guitar to play some Clapton on let me just say that. It sounds kinda nice though theres very little hum and the PU's arent really shitty but if you want to add a mid boost kit or if you want a fuller sound this aint it.
Thirdly quality like most of Harley Benton it's shockingly good these pieces of kit are easily the best for the price
To summarise this guitar for me is easily the second best i own my first being my ML2 which is insanely good. It feels nice and came setup great with no fret buzz or anything like that... dirty strings though... needs new strings... I have spare strings thank god.
