Amazing guitar, especially for the price!

Daniel G. 770, 26.01.2017
Ok so i first saw this guitar when browsing Thomann for a 'budget' priced LP type guitar. I already own several nice LP's, but wanted to give this guitar a shot.. Especially since it's so in-expensive to buy.

It arrived in just a few days, amazing considering it was free shipping too.

Upon opening the box, the thing that grabbed me immediately was the beautiful flamed maple top finish. This looks every bit as good as high end brands. I'm sure it's a veneer maple top, as real thick maple tops are unlikely on an in-expensive guitar. But who cares if it's veneer... It looks BEAUTIFUL!

Straight out of the box, it was in tune and had a nice medium-low action. D'Addario strings too, nice touch. The tuners seem solid and the nut was correctly cut too.. No strings grabbing in the slots or anything like that.

Electronics inside all appear to be typical mass produced type electronics that you find in budget guitars. Nothing wrong with that, they work great and don't cause any noises or scratchy sounds.

The guitar body is chambered, so it's essentially hollow in 2 large areas inside. Don't assume this 'takes away' from the tone (like i always wrongly believed in the past). It still feels nice and substantial in weight (not too heavy though), and it sounds big and fat.

I picked up the guitar, played a few open chords and it rang out very nicely. Believe it or not, it has more chime in the top end than my real LP's.. No joke.

Plugged it in, it sounded immense. Very thick, fat and beefy but with lots of dynamics and immediacy in the note attack. The neck pickup just sings.. Think Gary Moore's 'Parisienne Walkways' tone or John Sykes 'Is This Love' solo. Just enormous singing tone.

Playability and feel, i can't fault it. Fret work is good. It's not high end guitar fretwork, like you'd find on guitars like PRS or anything. But you wouldn't expect that with this low price tag. It doesn't choke out on big bends unless the action is set lower.

The upper fret access is exceptional and i wish my other LP's had this too. It makes the guitar feel so much easier to play. Also the neck shape is a nice thin/slim taper, not at all like the fat necks on my other LP's. It's a narrower nut width, or atleast feels like it is narrower anyway. My hands do prefer a slimmer neck and i'm totally at home on this guitar.

Overall i really cant find any fault with this guitar. I've looked it over, tried it out through different amps etc.

My conclusion :

Amazing sounding and feeling guitar. Especially for the price tag.

My advice? Buy one. Try it out. If you don't love it, send it back. But i very much doubt you will return it. It's that much fun to play! :-)

What a great guitar!!!

Dusko, 24.06.2015
I received SC550 Paradise Amber Flame today and after a few hours of playing with it Im in Love :) Seriously this is a GREAT guitar for the money.

Let me start with one negative thing first; one of the strap locks is not working so I asked Thomann to send me a new one (Im sure they will).

Back to positive;
These pickups are savage great! Man they are totally made for Slash. They articulate each string well and the tone is crisp and powerful. The 3 way switch is of better quality than the one I've got on my HB L-450 Plus. Also I find SC550 neck to be real easy to play. The tuners work just fine and the potties can be worked for desired sound, very sensitive.

Now about the AAAA Flame Maple Top :) Boy oh Boy what a beauty, I just couldn't believe it when I opened the box, it blew me away :) When I ordered this guitar I was a bit afraid that it might be too lemon yellow but its not, it is Amber/Ocher Yellowish a very rich and grounding color and the flame stripes man ... :) ah ...

The frets were polished and the rosewood fret board needed no oiling. The intonation is very close but will tweak it a bit. Action is ok but I might go a bit lower. There is a little buzz on the 6th and 5th strings on a few spots so will have to file down those frets but that is not a huge buzz :) so will do it in a week or so (I would not be able to live a day with real buzz issues).
Inlays are done very well.

Nice sustain on this guitar, but not as good as on the L-450+ .

The body of my guitar is made of 3 piece wood (yours could be 2 piece if your lucky). You can clearly see this when looking from the back where the "bridge" strap lock is. This is not an issue. The wood vibrates so nice when played I can feel it on my body, love that, its almost as if the guitar is alive.

I can just say one more thing about this SC 550 PAF :) and that is a MUST BUY

EDIT July 9th 2015; After the guitar settled in I discovered fret out beneath the 12th fret on a few frets so needed filing. Better but still needs a bit work. Im not playing cleans for now so can do but as soon I start clean playing again I will file them some more. The action is to Gibson specs so not that low but playable. These pickups are biting and are meant to be played in band situations where you need to cut through the drums but can be a bit overwhelming when playing on your own. The L-450 pickups are more pleasing to play on my own when practicing because they are much warmer, more vintage sounding. That said I still love these SC550 pickups, they sure can deliver.

EDIT; Im extremely happy with this guitar! Here is a tune I did with this SC-550 PAF and the Harley Benton bass JB-75NA https://soundcloud.com/papa-dusko/if-an-old-tree-trunk-could-talk
