Harley Hendrix Benton

Tamsin, 27.04.2015
I managed to kill two birds with one stone in this purchase. I wanted to try a Harley Benton guitar as I was seduced by the low prices . I also wanted to try a left-handed guitar as a right handed guitar just to get the Jimi Hendrix Experience.! There is a Vintage brand guitar which gives the right handed guitarist the Jimi "sound" but I wanted to feel what Jimi was up against in playing his guitar as a left handed player. The things that were against him were:- restricted access to the top notes on the treble strings ,arm in the way of the volume and tone controls , no conture on the now upper side of the guitar and the tremelo arm is also in the way of certain techniques . I always noticed that he played his guitar fairly high on his left side as this facilitated his method of reaching around below the trem . I have found that the trem arm gets in the way for my style of playing so I wonder what Jimi might have achieved if he'd had a proper left-handed guitar . So In spite of all the draw backs he managed to influence the world with his playing . By playing a left handed guitar right handed I am finding out what Jimi started with and I understand his style better . I now call this guitar my Harley Hendrix !!

Just for absolute newcomers!

02.06.2016
To put it briefly: for absolute newcomers, the guitar is okay, but not more.
I ordered it a long time ago when I had no experience at all and did not have anybody who might have given me an aid, so I did not have a reference product at the beginning.

I practiced and played about 4 months with this instrument and this actually worked quite well. After this time, however, I have already noticed that it is definitely something else, as I have gradually lost the fun of the instrument, since after learning some songs, of course, I also like to "rock" and Maybe even to the original songs wanted to play, but that was only conditionally possible, since the sound listened to length more modestly and no matter how much effort you were, did not achieve (sound-moderately) what you wanted.

When I first held a guitar in the hand for around the 500-600¤ I tipped from the chair! Wow! What part, what a feeling and what a sound!
But, of course, it is a much more expensive one.

The processing of the guitar was so far really great. No frets, no exfoliated paint or the like, all screws were well worked in.
Only criticism: the string position. This was unfortunately extremely high set and nowadays I find it thereby also more than unpleasant to play.

The weight I personally find very low, because my Les Paul weighs a lot more!

My conclusion:
If you are looking for a fresh start, and if you want to have fun with playing a guitar and not be in the corner after two or three weeks, this is definitely not the wrong decision ,

But it is said to you that if you have fun with the whole thing and depending on your personal progress, you should spend a little more on another guitar after a while, because it is worth the sound as well as the processing and Of the game feeling, which is why the playing fun is enormously increased!
