Exceptional for the price!
Dr. Demento, 24.06.2018
I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance, quality and sound of this instrument. It arrived extremely well packaged and protected with no shipping damage whatsoever. I was convinced to try this model watching YouTube video reviews by Henning Pauly and Cory Mura. Henning's, in particular, was a complete in depth detailed review. There are no reviews of this left-hand version to my knowledge on YouTube, however, I can wholeheartedly acknowledge that my new SC-550LH is as good as or better than it's right-hand counterpart.

Pros & Cons:
First of all, it is a well made, beautiful looking and relatively good sounding guitar. The neck action and setup was good but needed a little tweaking after the wood acclimated to my local climate (Southwestern Ontario, Canada.) The fret ends needed some love and shaping (I'm probably way too fussy) but overall the guitar was very playable right out of the box. The only negative issue for me is the weight of this instrument. I am 71 and have Arthritis in all my joints and the weight instantly brings me pain. Having said that, I believe it is no heaver than a Gibson Les Paul of any of the myriad of copies out there.

To sum up, I believe this is an extraordinary instrument at this price. Easily comparable to instruments twice or even three times the price!

GREAT PRICE, GREAT GUITAR
Arno Greyareas, 02.04.2021
I bought this as a guitar that I could use in the lounge when the kids were around. IF it gets scratched, its no biggie. I'm really impressed with the build quality and the finish, as its easily as good as any of the Korean guitars I own and not far off as good as the Japanese ones. Its now my go-to guitar and I highly recommend it to anyone from beginners to gigging performers. All I would change are the Roswell pickups to Seymour duncans and the nut to a TUSQ one. fab for the money.

HB SC-550LH Paradise Amber
Jamzpl, 13.06.2020
I was expecting to find flaws after all it is a 2000 dollar guitar for 255.00. But to my surprise it had none. Finish was perfect. Neck was one piece maple and just as it should be. Tuners are fine, pickups perform as expected. I really cannot find any reason not to buy this guitar. Thomann did a great job on shipping and protecting the instrument and it had to travel from Germany to USA. Thanks for such a pleasant experience, and quality guitar. I would recommend to my friends to buy all day long. Go for it !!!!
