My first electric guitar! An excellent bang for my buck

20.10.2016
Just to clarify, I am a bassist and I bought this guitar because I was looking for something cheap to learn chords on, in order to train my ear.

After a short discussion with my music teacher, I decided to go for the cheapest hollow/semihollow electric guitar I could find. This is not the cheapest guitar on Thomann, but it has tree of life pearl inlay and I'm a sucker for that. I want to emphasize - this guitar is as beautiful as it looks on the pictures.

Out of the box it came passably set up and tuned, with slight intonation problems. The biggest problem are the frets - The craftsmanship is shoddy+, some of them are uneven and others look like they're about to pop out. My teacher managed to fix it in a passable fashion. The bridge pegs lean inwards slightly, and my teacher said this cannot be fixed without swapping it out entirely. One of the tuners seems to be on the verge of breaking down. The knobs are plastic and come off with suspicious ease, the pots themselves are split-stem if that's important.

But the sound - oh boy. I am not a big guitar expert but my hearing is pretty good, and the chords coming out of this thing are rich and vibrant. They don't mention it in the features for some reason, but this guitar has a coil tap function (at least that's what it sounds like), allowing the player to get a whole lot of different sounds. The sustain is killer (which means yaall better learn to mute properly), and the pickups are pretty loud for a passive instrument.

Here's a sum-up:

CONS:
- Cheap tuners and bridge
- Shoddy fretwork
- Cheap-looking strap holders

NEUTRAL:
- Pearl Tree Of Life inlay: sort of crude close-up, looks wonderful from a distance! (of like 1 meter, don't worry, if you'll perform with this the audience will love it)
- Neck: I have no idea how comfortable it is as I am not a guitarist.

PROS:
- Coil tap!
- Pearl Tree Of Life Inlay(!!!) And an otherwise gorgeous look.
- This guitar is heavy. And I love heavy guitars. I give it around 3-4 kg.
- Rich sound, the pickups are probably great!
- Super bargain!

Poor quality

08.04.2016
The Harley Benton CST-24HB had managed to sneak past quality control - or was there any in the first place?

On a positive note, the neck felt very good and the back wood of the body was of a beautiful dark coffee colour.

However, the pickup switch was very unstable and loose. It is questionable how long it would work close to the f-hole without some permanent breakage.

The installed bridge was too cheap, with strings grouped together and leaving too few adjustment possibilities for proper intonation.

The fretboard had been left uncleaned and messy, apparently with residues from the inlay work.

All in all, this leaves a bad taste of poor quality control. Another waste of time and another Thomann guitar goes back in return.
