Brianpa, 15.08.2019
Delivered within 4 days well packaged and undamaged. but with faults the action is very high, I hope I can get it down enough by getting someone to take something of the bridge.
Whoever did the faux mother of pearl markers on the neck must have been a completely untrained amateur none of them are level they look atrocious they are so far out and at such an angle that where it is level with the string at the bottom the top part has over an eighth of an inch showing, and you can see through some of them where so much has been gouged out that you can see the indentation through the marker and there are black bits of glue or something on the edges as well and even the sizes and shade don't match.
The tuners seem firm enough but they turn and nothing happens and then suddenly they start to catch, once in tune they are ok but they make tuning awkward and more time consuming, something I can live with as they stay in tune once set, but a niggle all the same.
The action and the markers are the two really disappointing things, hopefully I can get someone to improve the action, but I can do nothing with the inlays on the neck, they look really stupid, how they got through quality control I don't know, they stand out like a sore thumb, which is a shame as the guitar otherwise looks and sounds really good.
I can't send it back, at the price it is not worth all the trouble of re-packaging and sorting out post, but someone needs to be told about the workmanship on the inlays, no professional could have done those, even an apprentice wouldn't have done work so bad, I would be interested to know how it occured and who did it.

Harley Benton delivers again
Cash jr., 07.11.2017
After purchasing Harley Benton's Custom Line King (J200 copy), which was simply amazing, I had enough faith in HB to buy this new Hummingbird copy branded the Superior. I've played Epiphone Hummingbirds and, just like the King sounded way better than the Epiphone EJ200, this HB-built copy exceeds the Epiphone counterparts in every way. For less money you get a richer sound which comes a lot closer to the actual Gibson Hummingbirds than the sound that Epiphone delivers. As others have pointed out, the finish is perfect, although I'm more of a fan of cherrybursts than vintage sunbursts when it comes to Hummingbirds. That's personal taste obviously but it would be nice to have a choice, at this point the vintage sunburst is the only version of the Superior available. Other than that, this guitar exceeded all my expectations, just like the King did. In this price range these Harley Benton models are simply as good as they come.
