Finally: an inexpensive Les Paul copy that impresses!
DannyP, 18.02.2020
I’ve been playing guitar since 1992. The so-called “big” brands (Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, Epiphone, Yamaha) and the usual guitar types (Les Pauls, SG’s, Strats, superstrats, Teles). And to be honest, I’ve always been quite picky. There was a time that I truly believed that NO guitar below the 1000 € mark could be any good (which is silly of course). I bet this sounds familiar to some of you. :)

So, choosing this highly affordable Harley Benton guitar wasn’t the most obvious choice. But here we are: after reading tons of great reviews I decided to give the SC-550 Faded Tobacco Flame burst (a.k.a. Les Paul copy) a chance and ordered one. Within only two workdays it was with me, so kudos to the people at Thomann and UPS!

At first, after unpacking, I was slightly disappointed because the guitar looked different from the photos on the Thomann website (the sunburst finish on my guitar is more yellow-y than brown, and it has this new brown-reddish fretboard instead of the familiar dark brown). But all in all, it’s an awesome looking instrument, and the feeling of disappointment vanished completely after further inspection. Against all expectations, I literally couldn’t find a single flaw in its workmanship!! Finish, neck, nut, binding, frets, inlays, body, hardware, everything just looked perfect! And after a quick tuning, the intonation was spot-on. No adjustments needed. Now how about that for a “budget” guitar?!

But then the most important thing: how does it play? And how does it sound?

Well, after playing for several hours continuously on it and putting it through its paces, my conclusion is simple and unambiguous: this is an all-round GREAT workhorse of a guitar that’s made for rocking out! Its neck feels great (not too thin, not too thick, just right for a Les Paul), its body feels comfortingly substantial and the Roswell PAF-style pickups have a *FAT* warm vintage sound. Okay, maybe here could be my only minor criticism: the neck pup sounds too bassy for my personal taste. While it’s absolutely perfect for creamy buttery leads with tons of sustain, it gets imho too muddy for delicate cleans and rhythm work. But of course, that’s something that can be easily remedied by adjusting my amp’s tone controls. No biggie, because 80% of the time I use the bridge pickup anyway, and that one is absolutely perfect and tonally balanced. Still, it’s something to take into account. In time, I might consider swapping the neck pickup for something “slimmer” sounding.

Final verdict: I’m seriously impressed by the quality of this SC-550. Really. Best guitar I've played in years. If you’re just like me, looking for an inexpensive but great sounding/playing Les Paul and can live without a “big” name on its headstock, you will love this instrument. Wholeheartedly recommended!

Edit: I have managed to improve the neck pickup tone by lowering it (almost flush with the mounting ring) and slightly bringing up the individual polepieces. This helps noticeably in getting less bass response and more "airy" highs!!

PROBABLY THE BEST HB I HAVE HAD SO FAR
Kevlar Poser, 23.03.2020
Have to say that I am only a home player and have slowly been trying to self teach myself the guitar, after retirement. Having said that, I have managed to go through a few over the past few years, as I had never found one that felt really good to put up with my clumsy playing style. To me, this one felt just right for me and although
not super light, I guess that it's not the heaviest LP type around either. I reckon it must be the 14 inch fretboard radius that made the difference for me and although it never really occurred to me before, it does seem to suit very well.

I have had a few HB's in the past and have found them in general to be great value with good fit and finish, despite inevitably often having basic but functional hardware. At my level of playing, there is no justification for spending several hundreds, or thousands of £'s, Euros or $'s more as it would make little difference to advance the playing skills. The HB £200 - £350 is absolutely fine for me, as with no supply chain to feed, that would probably equate to almost £350 - £650 in the world of High Street brands anyway. As everyone now knows, HB is Thomann's own "house" brand and in the case of guitars, the various models appear to be made in
many different Far Eastern countries which have been selected for their particular abilities in producing instruments to Thomann's specs. at an affordable price.

In summary, I would say that the finish on this guitar is lovely. The Faded Tobacco Burst on the top veneer is as nice as I have seen anywhere in pics. The Roswell pickups, I find suit me very well.
To me they sound great in this category of LP type
guitar. Tbh if I spent another £80 on an upgrade,
it is debatable if my ears would appreciate the difference. The Deluxe hardware is good and works well, although I did have a set of Guyker
rear locking Vintage Tuners in a drawer which were purchased in error last year ( as too late I discovered they were 3 + 3's ). So these were added, but I would not have bought them specially as the stock HB's worked fine. My favourite feature is the 350 mm fretboard radius.

Any minus points ? I always expect to do a certain amount of setting up on any guitar tbh so nothing really to moan about, particularly for the price paid. A bit lefty-loosey of the truss road, a touch off a slightly rocking 9th fret and the usual string height and intonation tweaks, which most can handle quite easily.

At present there are 5 electrics in my now
(diminished ) collection and If by some cruel chance I was forced to go down to two, the keepers would be this SC550 and a Wilson Bros VM 100 Jazzmaster from 2006 for sentimental reasons.
In short I have to give 5 Stars overall - at this price, it is worth it. Highly recommended
