At first I thought I had made a mistake...
DK1985, 05.07.2019
I'm no luthier, but I am also no novice when it comes to assessing quality and setting up guitars. the first time I played this out of the box I thought I had wasted my money. I couldn't get the thing to stay in tune, the action was horrible, it was cutting my hands up and I was comtemplating sending it back.

Then I got drunk.

Then the fret file and screwdrivers came out. Here's how I turned this guitar from a potential error into my favourite guitar to play.

1: Take the strings off.
2: File the fret edges down to stop it from shredding your hands off.
3: Get some oil. I used fast fret. I went up and down the whole neck dabbing oil on. I also put plenty on the nut. This is important as it helps termendously with the tuning issues that came with using the trem. Then wipe off the excess.

3: I removed a spring from the trem. This made it float. If you dont want a floating trem then don't follow this step. If you want to be like Jeff Beck then absolutely do.

4: Put new strings on.

5: drunkenly send whatsapp messages to your brother and your guitarist friend declaring yourself to be some kind of guitar fixing god.

Seriously though, after I had done the above I was scarcely able to put it out of tune again even with diving the trem right to the body. The fretboard drank a fair bit of oil but looks and feels lovely now. I did have to file some of the frets down above the 12th as I was getting buzz when bending up but this was probably just luck of the draw and you may have 0 issues. A good guitar tech could have this thing playing beautifully for you with minimal effort if you dont fancy trying it yourself.

Soundwise it is beautiful. I can't hear much difference between this and a fender. The pickups are good, there's a lot of buzzing like you would expect from this configuration but I know this can also be remedied to a point with good shielding and some proper earthing.

If you want a good starter guitar, a project guitar or something to pad out your collection (I use this for recording) then I can't recommend this enough. Great guitar. Great price.

Cannot believe this guitar is well under $100.00
hannon jh, 14.11.2020
I purchased this guitar a while ago for well under $100.00. I own many strat style guitars and built a few myself and this guitar is incredible for the price. First, If you are a beginner this guitar is PERFECT. If you are a seasoned player all you have to do is exchange the pickups and you have an awesome strat style guitar. I put a set of new Tex Mex Fender pickups (which was not that expensive) and it keeps up with the more expensive guitars. Quality is incredible and for the price it's amazing!

Two guitars, quality!
richvb13, 07.11.2020
This was the second of two guitars bought for my first purchase from Thomann. Straight from the box at this price point I was amazed at the standard of guitars I received. As with the first guitar the neck and body were great no fret sprout no blemishes anywhere. All I needed to do was lower the string height, the intonation was fine. The tuners hold tune, no loose screws no complaints at all. You get a real bang for your buck as they say! Also the communication from Thomann was second to none which is what you need when buying from another country. I do recommend this product. Stay safe all. Thanks Thomann!

my guitar's life, 07.02.2021
Ну, нормально. В целом, уверенная 4-ка для этой ценовой категории. Почему 4-ка? За 2 месяца 2 раза подпиливал выступающие по краям грифа лады - дерево грифа усыхает. Это как бы и нормально,но не так сильно должно быть,т.е. дерево сушилось не 150 лет... Этого нет на том же HB SC-550.
