Good things come in small (affordable) packages
Mark Agnesi wouldn't like me, 02.09.2020
First things first, if you're coming here for a 1950's Junior, you're not going to get that. I have one (like, the real deal), and it is not the same.
This is not to say it is not better in some ways, though.

Finish/construction:
I have nothing at all to criticize here. Mine was perfect out of the box. Everything working fine, guitar looks great, super light (much lighter than my original one, but that is a '55 single cut jr.). I didn't find that this bridge biting into my hand, and having the guitar properly intonated is a nice change :)
The fretboard is surprisingly nice and the fretwork pretty perfect. I'm not used to medium jumbo fret wire anymore, so that took a bit getting used to.
The body in my guitar is made of 3 pieces of mahogany, with only a very, very light difference in color or grain orientation. Basically, under some lighting angles, my guitar looks like it has a racing stripe down the middle in a very slightly different shade. Not complaining, looks good regardless. Also, unlike the photos on the product page, my tuners are actually properly installed (for real Thomann, that 2nd string tuner is crooked AF). The volute is a nice touch, one less worry to have with the guitar.

Sound/controls:
This is where the difference lies. This is not a Gibson P90-loaded junior. However, that Roswell P90 is pretty damn cool. It seems naturally more articulate than both my old P90 Jr and my more recent "Authentic" iteration of it.
If you've ever played a proper Junior, you know they are angry little guitars, full of mid-range. You twist the knobs, move your picking hand around, and you can go from punk to jazz if you so wish. But with the pots on 10, there's just dirt to be had, very fast. Good dirt.
With the HB, you also have plenty of dirt, but more focused on the upper mids. I found the electronics to provide a much more controlled bass (as in the lower notes do not distort as readily as the rest of them, hence being "cleaner" than the "authentic product"). Go up the neck and it's every bit as dirty, though. The pickup is pretty articulate in a way that reminds me of a Gibson P90ST (completely underrated pickup if you know what you are doing with it), but slightly less nasal.
On the other hand, the controls could be improved - the pots are fine and do their job, and it is by far the most silent of all my single coil guitar, but the taper in the pots, particularly in the tone pot is a bit meh. You can get any sound out of a Junior, but if the pot does nothing audible between 10 and 8, change is barely perceptible until 6 and then it drops off a cliff - that could be improved a bit. It still works fine, it just needs adjusting with the ears rather than the eyes. Volume pot changes are perfectly adequate, cleaning up and darkening the sound slightly, as they should.
As for the tuners, the plastic knobs are kind of cheap looking, but the guitar stays in tune really, really well. Nut was decently cut too, again, much better than some far more expensive guitars.

My €0.02:
So, the pros are obvious. If you want to have a Junior and simultaneously not go bankrupt, sell a vital organ or settle for an "authentic" imitation, this is it. I did not try the HB SC Jr, as lighter is better in my book, and my "Authentic" Jrs, while light, have that weird heavy ass-end thing where they kind of want to fall off your lap while sitting down. This one balances like a good SG - no neck dive, light, really nice for long sessions playing it. It sounds and looks great, has a voice of its own that can be brought into the fold for Junior-induced happiness, plays really well, stays in tune and intonated, and is insanely affordable. You will also not need to take insurance for this one :)

Cons: you won't be the "authentic" kid at the gig. On the other hand, you won't give a rat's ass about it, because you'll be having fun and not worrying about the guitar. For me, it cures the Junior itch for live use (well, whenever that resumes, thanks to the beer-named disease)

Disclaimer: mass produced, affordable guitar out of the Far East. Mine was good, yours may or may not be. Take my review with a grain of salt.

my first guitar
MrPol, 04.09.2020
I chose my first guitar. Of course, in my opinion, a beginner was looking for a balance of price and quality.
It is very pleasant in the hands. I did not find anything to complain about in terms of visuals.
The frets are made very well - the hand glides gorgeous. Let's see what happens after our harsh winter.
Nut strange material to the touch. But maybe it should be :)
Her color is gorgeous - the photo of the product does not convey it.

While very satisfied, let's see how it will behave over time.
