Mighty axe for little cash
Dazmulls, 14.08.2017
Use - Just for messing about at home.
Fancied a LP as I was interested in a guitar with humbuckers.

For the money this is just amazing. Matt finish looks cool and is very smooth to the touch. There seem to be some light scratches on the back of the neck in the wood before the finish was applied. You can barely see it but you can feel it, this does not however have any negative effect when playing. No big deal. Fret board is fine. inserts are a little untidy in places. Frets seem to be level and no sharp edges. Could do with a polish as they are just the slightest bit 'grainy' and can be felt on some frets more than others when bending. Pick guard was sharp in places and could do with a sanding. Apart from these niggles It is amazing what just over £100 will get you from Harley Benton.
Order placed on Friday, delivered Monday. Well packaged and unbelievable delivery again from Thomann. Thanks guys.

Im not really a pickup snob , I usually find I can get the sound Im looking for with a bit of fiddling on the Amp (Vox VX1), so yeah, pickups sound fine to me.

Everything is well put together and seems to be built like a tank, a heavy shovel for sure.

Will prob change the strings at some point but what is there are fine. I am HUGELY impressed with my first HB and will def be purchasing again if I can hide them from the wife lol.

Anyone looking for a usable, 'wallet friendly' instrument , you will not find better in this price bracket.

Best LP Clone I have ever dealt with.
Black Beauty, 29.01.2020
I couldn't be happier with the decision of ordering this guitar from Germany and having to wait a month for shipping!!!

For 148$USD i received a pristine matte black Single Cut that plays, looks, and sounds JUST LIKE the Original that costs literally 10 times as much.

I totally expected to get a half-decent body and then have to spend the money on new knobs, tuners, and pickup; just to make up the difference and have something playable. Damn was I wrong on all accounts.

My guitar as all of the craftsmanship, AAA finish, tone, and overall playability that I could ever ask for and at a fraction of the cost.

Wanted a Matt LP with Humbuckers......
Jan Strydom, 13.11.2017
Perfect right out of the box and for a 100bucks, just shut up and play it.

Love the Matt finish but it needs a little more care, not a single mark or flaw on this guitar, Frettboard needed a little oil, needs a little setup but what can you say for the price, marvelous value, great looks and plays just fine. I have owned much more expensive guitars and fancy names that were far worse................I have several new HB's guitars in my Cart, that should say it all....Do I recommend the HB SC 400................Yes!!
Must say that Cory Mura and Henning from EytschPi42 are great ambassadors for HB.........

Good starterguitar
MartinWB , 02.03.2019
Out of the box very impressed with the quality. Matte finish looks very nice, no scratches or dings on it. Have ordered a different set of strings with it but haven't had to put those on yet. Seems to stay in tune allright, i tune it every time i practice (which is not as often as i should once or twice a week). Only thing im not a fan of is the faux moher of pearl look on the headstock but otherwise a nice guitar. Set up was also well done
