I Love Mine!
Picky Player, 09.01.2019
This guitar is a vast improvement over the sadly disappointing Roasted Maple model I bought last year!

All the tuning issues have been addressed and corrected.  The staggered tuners and roller tree are so much better than the previous restraining bar fiasco. 

The sleek neck on the HH is still a tad slim Depth-wise when compared to the original inspiration high dollar guitar, but it is definitely "C" shaped and much more comfortable than the pathetically skinny "(" shape of my 1st generation Roasted Maple.  The Ebony fingerboard is nice and thick and it looks like the Macassar variety. It has a very beautiful grain coloring and it is luxuriously smooth to the touch. The Stainless Steel frets are a joy to play They are finished perfectly and make it feel like you're playing a lighter gauge string because bending is so smooth and effortless This neck has much more sustain and tuning stability than my RM too. 

The finish on mine is flawless and absolutely beautiful.  I love that it shifts from green to blue at different angles - mesmerizing!  I actually like the color better than the real "PT". 

It weighs in at a mere 7lbs 5ozs - exactly the same as my Roasted Maple, so it's very light and comfortable. The nut width is 42.3mm, but the spacing from E to E is only a tad over 34mm, so a new nut will be needed to make the most of the limited real estate at the the nut. A 36mm slot spacing would be ideal.  It's cut for depth fine though and has no problems with strings pinching on trem use. The trem itself is perfectly intonated and a sheer joy to use. It's smooth feeling in every way and the string spacing is ideal at 52mm.

Pickups are pretty good.  Not as articulate as the ones on the RMs, but they're very robust and completely usable for rock & blues.

Setup for the guitar was minimal to achieve totally effortless play-ability. A very slight tightening of the truss rod and lowering the bridge a bit was all it needed.  One minor oddity was that the bar included to adjust the truss rod wheel was too big around to fit in the adjustment wheel holes.  I just used one of the Allen wrenches in its place and that worked fine though.

All in all, this is a super guitar and I definitely recommend it.  About another 10th of an inch of girth in the neck and this would be one of my top favorites.  It's still much better than my Roasted Maple neck though and I'm actually very happy with this one.  In fact, if they come out with a gold or cherry colored version I will definitely buy it too.....

If they have the made the same needed neck improvements on the RM that this version has it will be killer too!

In the "bang for the buck" category, I don't know how you can possibly go wrong on this wonderful axe.  It's gig-worthy and an asset in the studio as well. More importantly, I actually enjoy playing it more each time I pick it up - the exact opposite of my previous HB Fusion experience (the RM) and that's a good thing.

Do yourself a favor and get one of these while you can. It's fun, it's beautiful, it's comfortable, it's affordable and it plays like a dream!

Strato123, 25.08.2019
This is an absolutely amazing guitar for the price. I've owned far less for much more money.
The sound of this guitar is a wonderfull bell like tone. I'm finding it hard to put down. I own some very nice well known brand guitars. Les Pauls, Strat's, Tele's and PRS guitars. All USA made and I would put this up against any of them. In fact I'm playing this far more than my others.
PROS
The the wammy bar works fine and stay's in tune.
The frets feel great and are well polished.
As for the paint and finish I've seen no flaws.
Sounds great in both humbucker and split coil modes.
It came set up perfectly right out of the box.
CONs
One thing to look for if you buy this guitar is the rubber tip that is on the 3 way switch. It was to far down and prevented the switch from engaging the bridge and neck pickups. The middle was working fine. It took me a little while to figure out what was causing the problem.

I would like to say to all those at Thomann well done!

Well worth the money! Get one before they figure out what they have and raise the prices.
