Beautiful Guitar
Yorkshire Lad, 27.08.2021
Ordered on Sunday, arrived on Thursday. This guitar is stunning. The pictures on the website dont do it justice. The flame top is amazing, and its a much deeper, richer cherry red than on the website. It arrived without a blemish anywhere. The build quality is exceptional and the sound (to me as a beginner guitarist) is right up there with any guitar Ive heard. I cant believe how good it looks. Maybe the jade coloured tuner pegs might not be to everyones taste, but I dont mind them. I have quite a few HB guitars now, including the outstanding Fusion 3 in roasted maple and this guitar looks just as good. If you want a LP style guitar, dont bother paying £600/£700, buy this one, its outstanding in every way.

Just wowed!! (in a good way)
Stan7, 24.08.2021
I had to return a Gretsch g220 from another store due to frets coming off the fretboard. And this HB SC550 II BCF almost the same price level actually little less than that - I am just wowed by the quality and sound of this instrument that I have been playing for a week now. Looks so beautiful! Just how Thomann do this? :)

Aaron D, 12.07.2021
The Tesla pickups and stainless frets are welcome additions to the the formula I was already quite happy with on the Gen I. The frets required little to no work and they feel great. The new flame tops are HOT.

I think the description of the nut as "graphite" is in error. It was also badly cut and will probably need changing before I'm happy with it.

Pros:
Beautiful
Great fret work
New pickups are fantastic

Cons:
Badly cut nut
Nut material not as advertised

Incredible and beautiful guitar for the price!
JJLESPRS, 26.08.2021
I'm blown away by the quality for the price. I'd have no issue playing a gig with this guitar as it came. With some Seymour Duncan's it would be on par with my Les Pauls and PRS's for less than a 1/4 of the price!
