Beautiful guitar but needs work to make it really good

Ivke, 17.12.2017
I am intermediate learner, playing along rock and pop tracks at home.
This guitar looks stunningly beautiful and elegant!
It came set up to be usable, but action was high - more like acoustic. Intonation on 12th fret was slightly off.
reasonably stable tuners, nice sounding pick-ups (my instructor uses PaulReedSmith guitar which sounds full, weighty, warm, awesome). CST24 does not sound quite like PR S. but with humbucker and split coil option produces a great variety of tones for all styles of music. (Perhaps needless to say, but This PRSish type guitar will not sound quite like Strat or LP. If you want one of those sounds, go for that type of guitar).
Quality: the guitar seems to be really nicely made and finished, very good looking, without a blemish. All parts feel solid and work well, and it should last and be reliable.
But, It needs a bit of setting up of action to be easier to play. Also, lower action gives fret-buzz and you lose some high notes.
I think that this guitar is a reasonable value for money, usable straight out of the box, but can be much better than price-tag with bit of work.

Of all the Harley Bentons I own, this is my favorite so far!!

Jimi89, 21.09.2017
As per usual with Harley Bentons, this guitar showed up in excellent form. The action was perfect (in my opinion), intonation was great, no rough frets or unfinished areas, and ready to play right outta the box.

Upon plugging it in, I was amazed by the quality of the pickups. They express a really nice glassy clean sound and they hold a good solid and even overdrive. I have used this guitar live a few times now and it has been amazing. I know the pickups are stock, but they are seriously impressive.

The volume and tone pots are great high quality, sensitive and responsive for their size. The guitar hardware itself is immaculate and would rival most mid-high range guitars out there.

I play in a variety of different tunings, from E standard to Drop A and the tuners on this guitar handle the different tunings and string gauges perfectly. They hold their tune exceptionally well.

My only gripe with this guitar was a little part of the binding on the top curve gets slightly wider than it should towards the neck. That is literally the only bad thing I have to say about this guitar and I really had to nit-pick to come up with that one.

All in all, I feel like a bit of a thief for getting a guitar of this quality at the price I bought it for. I've said it once and I'll say it again, I have no Idea how HB make a profit on these guitars! - I'm just glad they exist for those of us who, like me, love quality guitars but operate on a very small budget!

Thank you Harley Benton and thank you Thomann! :)
