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.

Superior indeed!

John3730, 17.09.2017
I have had my custom line Superior now for about 2 weeks and and am getting to like it more and more every day. Ok, for the purists, it is obviously a clone of the Gibson/Epiphone Hummmingbird, but quite frankly I cannot see how Thomann can produce this guitar for the money. I have an Epiphone Hummingbird (also purchased from Thomann) and it is a nice guitar but in no way better than the Superior. In fact, unplugged, the Superior is vastly Superior. Also, maybe not as important, but the finish is perfect. I have looked very hard to see if I could find any kind of flaw and failed. But if you have two or three grand to throw away, then by all means buy the big brand, but to a degree that's all you are buying; a big brand. Once again Thomann have managed the almost inpossible; to create a guitar of this stature for an almost unbelievable price. One very happy customer.
Regards,
John Hall.
