HB DC Custom Cherry

Christopher6076, 20.12.2015
This instrument is staggering for the money! The finish is beautiful, a translucent deep red that you can see the grain of the wood through. All of the hardware is good quality, the Grover tuners smooth and easy to tune with. Most of all, the sound is deep and round, the playability smooth and fast with a nice medium low action. I very much like the fact that it only has one tone and volume knob, less messing about and more playing! In fact, I have nothing negative to say about this guitar at all except and this is probably due to where I live rather than the instrument, it arrived perfectly set up but next day it buzzed like the devil. I adjusted the neck relief and it was fine but a few days later it happened again. I re-adjusted the action again and it has remained fine since. I should mention that I live up a mountain in northern Spain and the climate at this time of year changes temperature and humidity on almost a daily basis so not really a surprise that I had issues. I have Gibson's, Fenders and PRS?s in my collection and all the mahogany necks have the same issues when they first arrive, the Maple necks seem more tolerant. To sum up, this is a superb instrument and I recommend it to anyone.

Quality guitar on a budget

24.04.2016
I bought the DC Custom as I indulgently wanted a classic cherry SG style guitar to add to my little collection, without breaking the bank. What has surprised me (although it is mentioned in other reviews) is the overall quality of the instrument for the price. The hardware and pickups are nicely finished as branded items and are well fitted to a beautiful mahogany body. There are a couple of tiny flaws in the lacquer on the body and in the neck binding, but no-one else is going to notice them. It is lovely to look at from all angles, even from the back.

Playing it shows it was well set up at the factory - no buzzing or dead spots and the D'Addario strings are a really nice quality touch. It's neck-heavy when using a strap, but if you are going full-on Angus Young you're not going to notice. It sounds suitably SG-like thanks to those pickups and is a pleasure to play.

So - a very nice guitar in it's own right, but when you consider the quality and the price, you should buy one even if you just hang it on the wall and look at it!
