A superb guitar at an amazing price
StevieMR, 25.03.2019
In July 2018 I bought one of the original first generation models of the Fusion Pro, with natural finish, roasted maple neck and Wilkinson tremolo. Due to the string retainer bar fitted behind the nut it was a tuning nightmare! I returned the guitar because it would not play or stay in tune. I gave this guitar 1 star in my review on this site and made some suggestions with regards to improving the design of the guitar. Thomann appear to have listened and very positively responded to mine and other customers design comments and potential improvements. Gone is the string retainer bar replaced by locking machine heads and a string roller tree and the guitar plays and stays in tune perfectly , including when using the tremolo arm extensively. The guitar looks stunning with a beautiful flamed Bengal maple top and roasted maple neck. The neck profile is said to be a modern C shape, however there is definitely more 'wood in your hand' than on my HH Fusion Pro I model which is said to have the same neck profile. I would describe the neck profile to be more of a 'soft V' or even 'D' profile. Either way it is incredibly comfortable and playable.

Sound wise, the Roswell pickups are okay but they don't deliver the claririty, depth or warmth I need for the studio, so I got Alan Dingwall a legendary pickup builder here in the North east of England to replace the Roswell pickups with 3 of his own pickups (HSH configuration). These now make the guitar into a 'tone monster', that not only sounds better but also plays and looks better than guitars that cost £2000 - £3000 more.

In summary, this is a brilliant guitar at a great price, like the other two Harley Benton guitars I own it required a little bit of a set up when it came out of the box. This can be done with minimal maintenance knowledge or with You tube demo's.
Highly recommended , and a 'tip of the hat' here to Thomann / Harley Benton who listened to customers and responded by correcting design faults on the original non-locking trem Fusion Pro's, resulting in a fantastic guitar! Well done Harley Benton / Thomann.

A beautiful guitar...no more no less.
JonathanKoh, 26.04.2019
This is my 2nd fusion pro Maple neck purchase even though I bought this on behalf of a good friend of mine.
The guitar was delivered in great condition and well setup! With a couple of slight tweaks, it was up and playing.
The flame on the roasted maple neck are a bit different from the 1st version but still nice. The neck and frets felt the same as my previous guitar.
Alas, the pickups were not improved. They are ok but a bit too thin to my liking. You would have to tweak a bit on your eq to get a workable sound.
The floating tremolo bridge works like a dream and very responsive just like the earlier version.
ANd yes! The retainer bar is out ..now they have staggered tuners with no string trees! All good as the guitar will stay in tune more without more metal obstacles. hahah
Overall, a great purchase! They did this one right this time round!
This guitar was reviewed on my video "Harley Benton Fusion II HSH Roasted FBB Unboxing and Review" @ my youtube channel
