Great Value For The Money

26.02.2016
I've had this for two months before reviewing it, in order to write an accurate review of it.

I have used it in a band situation and at home, also in studio. The guitar has no problems tuning, the only part that deserves a modification is the bridge, cause you can't set the intonation properly, due to the type. The guitar is very clear and articulate, the pickups are very good for rock, blues, clean playing, but I'll have them replaced due to personal preference later on (the factory ones are great nevertheless!).
The finish is very very very good, it has just one very small misalignment on the body binding, but you'll see it only if you hold the guitar and examine it. The action came pretty high for my tastes, therefore I had to play with the bridge a bit. It holds its tuning better than my $600 Jackson KVX guitar when switching from inside to outside (in case of live playing). If you want to get this guitar to professional levels, I advise a bridge and tuners change (bridge with dedicated intonation control per string).
All in all, if you are looking for a great body with great sound, or maybe a modding platform, or maybe a cheaper Reed Smith but without compromising much of the quality, this guitar is for you. I recommend the tremolo version, though, because of the lower action on the higher frets.
One more thing worth noting - this guitar really delivers. I was skeptical of the other reviews at first, but I've convinced myself after having it in my possession for a month and a bit - my friend who tried it said it plays better than his Gibson SG Custom (price well over $2000), so this guitar, with a bit of caress and attention, will deliver great quality and for this price it's a bargain. I'm surprised on the fact that not as many people as it should be are buying and using them. I'd love custom options on Harley Benton guitars (like a custom shop).
Don't hesitate buying, if you don't like it (which I doubt), you have warranty and 30-days to return it.

A Seriously Good Guitar

Johnny Robbo, 17.06.2017
I used to own the very famous guitar that this is obviously designed to look a lot like, and it was one of those that i always "wanted" to like... but could never quite manage it. It hung on the wall like a trophy: nothing "wrong" with it, but it never really shouted "PLAY ME" the way that a truly great guitar should.

Recently I found myself in need of a 24 fret guitar & having had good experiences with other Harley Benton instruments, I took a chance on this one.

The pics on the website DO NOT do this guitar justice... it is STUNNING! Out of the box, it needed a little bit of a set up - action & intonation. Don't believe anyone who says you can't intonate these wrap-over bridges correctly - you CAN, it just takes a little longer than on a strat or les paul. Truss rod & bridge adjusted, it now has a low-buzz free action & plays as slick as a greasy weasel.

Sound wise, it delivers too. I've put a video up on YouTube (search John Robson Guitarist) where I play it side by side with a "boutique" Carvin guitar costing around £1600 & this little Harley Benton acquits itself REALLY well by comparison.

It's a no-brainer... Just buy one!
