Pleasantly Surprised

11.12.2015
Firstly. Hats off to Thomann. They have always provided great service.

Now the guitar. . . . I put off buying this for weeks and weeks as I was unconvinced by all of the good reviews it had received. I eventually bit the bullet and thought if it isn't any good I can always return it. Well, I have to say that I was very surprised when I opened the box. The colour and lacquer finishes are surprisingly very good with only a small imperfection on one of the cut-away's at the binding. I was expecting it to be quite poor as far as the sunburst goes but it is really very good. The neck is nice too and the headstock finishes it off with a nice motif. I've owned a couple of Epi dots (vintage sunburst and blonde) that have not been any better. All of the tuners are in line, something I have seen on several reviews as an issue. The frets are well finished too. All of the electronics work fine. I only use it at home so I have no need for a massive sound and I don't use lots of effects. If it is going to be used professionally then the pickups may need swopping out. I changed the strings immediately for D'Adarrio 10's and set the neck relief and action to my liking.
There are some other minor issues such as a very dry finger board, comes up nice with lemon oil. The wiring loom is visible to through the lower F hole, no big deal. The pick guard looks like it has been cut out with a craft knife by a five year old, something else that comes up regularly in reviews. I always intended on removing it anyway. The body is a bit smaller than the original 335. It is probably in between an Epi Dot and the coupe. I have to say for just north of £100 delivered it is pretty amazing. I don't know how a guitar can be produced for this kind of money. The only disappointment is that I would have preferred it in the Cherry red, but I was not prepared to spend an extra £20 for the colour (not sure why it is more expensive), plus it was out of stock at the time I ordered. All in all I am very pleased. If you are having doubts, go for it, don't expect Gibson quality and you will not be disappointed. I may be tempted to try a HB acoustic shortly.

Great quality/price ratio, very good instrument for beginners or even more experienced users

20.12.2016
First of all, the Thomann service was excellent, the guitar well packed and protected. The guitar is a very good option for players searching for a semi-hollow axe at an affordable price. Also, it can be a nice choice for experienced players. Of course, it can't be compared to a relic instrument, but the HB can fight with more expensive instruments.

Look & Feel:
The sunburst is fine. Just fine, it's not perfect and has some little stains on the back. The overall look is good. At a close look, the pickguard is really bad shaped and somewhat annoying. Excellent neck and headstock finishing. The guitar is well balanced and not too heavy (compared to other semi hollow bodies, of course it requires a good strap)

Sound, usability etc.
Starting from the cons, the selector switch looks unstable as if, after some use, it might get loose. I asked to Thomann support and bought a replacement for the switch. The guitar came almost in tune (guys at Thomann checked it bf shipping), the strings are HB 10-46, soft for the fingers but also soft for the sound. I changed them after a week with GHS 10.5 Gimour's signature, warmer and richer.
Pros. The 2 volume, 2 tone knobs controlling the humbuckers rotate smoothly, I feel comfortable with their position and configuration. Tuning pegs are good, the bridge is solid. The sound with a good set of strings is really good. The construction and the performance is generally very good and satisfying.
