Great base for custom project!
Nekroo, 18.10.2020
I bought this guitar knowing the first thing I will do is upgrading it.
Straight out of the box the guitar was not sounding great and playing on it was not that comfortable. But! After:
- changing the strings
- adjusting trussrod
- adjusting string height on bridge
- adjusting intonation on bridge
It sounded very well and the string action was okay!

I will change the keys, pots, nut and bridge so I can only say of the base of this guitar - neck and body is pretty great.

CONS:
- Guitar was not packed very safely and one of the 'horns' of the body was messed up in delivery - it's only about 1 cm of the lacquer though in the back so not a big deal,
- One of the tunning keys is little bit rusty in few places, but I will replace it nonetheless.

First HB received
JerryArzaga, 03.08.2021
This is my second HB guitar bought, but first received, still waiting for the first one.
As expected it is a guitar configured for metal playing, it sounds really hard, tried clean but not the best sound because of its high outcome pick ups, I am an amateur player and it is very enough for me, very nice finished and looks great in my living room among my other guitars and piano, I adjusted height of strings and it will make me adjust octaves, but they were fine out of the box, happy with my new guitar, sounds and look terrific!!!
Shipping only took 14 calendar days to Mexico.

Amazing for the price!
Nickanimal, 19.10.2017
My first electric guitar (I've owned 2 bass guitars so far) so I don't have much to compare it to but for the price I have very little to complain about.

The only things I'd consider as negatives are that the strings it came with were okay but nothing special. I re-strung it with a £7 pack of DR DDT-10's and it sounds great! Also I'd have preferred a thru-body tremolo-style bridge as I've heard they have better sustain than the Tune-o-matic bridge this has but it's fine for a beginner like me.

The meh is that it needed a bit of a set up, but that's fine as that can be needed on more expensive guitars too.

Pro's then. I can't find any faults with the finish, overall build quality is great and I love the design, practicality be damned! It's not too heavy and the tuners are fine and smooth. Sound is great too though I'm sure the humbuckers it comes with aren't the best, but again it's perfectly fine for a beginner like me. Finally the price, way better than I was expecting for this kind of money!
