I bought this guitar to get a feel for seven-string guitars and my first impression has been very positive. Considering the price I didn't expect too much but I don't like to waste my money on garbage either so I did have certain expectations on assembly and tuning stability. Now that the guitar has arrived I am happy to discover that it exceeds my expectations. Intonation and tuning stability is good. The neck-joint is flawless and string height is very good. The neck was comfortable and overall it feels like an easy-to-play instrument. There were som minor cosmetic imperfections on the paint job. The pickups aren't excellent but work well. I consider this guitar excellent value-for-money.

Nice

Fantastic guitar. Bought to get a feel for seven strings, very impressed. Playability is fantastic and the neck width and depth feels perfect. Tone suprisingly good for a cheap guitar such as this.

I had before: Ibanez RG with factory pickups, Schecter Hellraiser with EMG 81/89 pickups, Cort Evl X6 with EMG 81/85 - all with D'Addario strings. This guitar more playable and has the same or even better sound with factory pickups and strings, than the previous three! Seriously! And much-much-much cheaper! I'm gonna replace bridge pickup to DiMarzio D-Activator, but if the sound not gonna be much better I'm gonne sell it and keep the original one. The guitar body is much heavier the any of my old ones, so forget that is a cheap, light rubbish. The tuners keeps the tone, so what else you need? I'm playing all kind of metal, and it's good for them. Harley Benton guitars are made in China by the manufacturer Saein, which produces guitars for Ibanez, Epiphone, and Peavey. Edification: don't pay for the name, and don't be snob. Are you Steve Vai? If not, just a mortal player, like me, everything you need is a good guitar - and it is. I'm using Line6 UX1 with PodFarm anyway.
