Unbelievable!!

06.12.2016
So I wanted a Tele that I could run around with and use for practice in the studio and living room that was not my Fender Deluxe $1,500 Telecaster. Also, I wanted something at least Fender MIM quality without the price. I watched some videos on YouTube on the Harley Benton TE-30 BE. The videos looked compelling so I decided to order one?and WOW!!!

When I received the guitar I could not believe how heavy it was. The finish was clean, deep, and rich. Much creamier than it looked in the pictures. Frets were crowned nicely and well levelled. Tuners keep the guitar in tune well even after days of layoffs. No need to upgrade. The sound: Man this thing sounds like a Telecaster. It?s got that Tele twang and can also rock. At this price you would not believe a guitar could not sound this good! Huge surprise with these pickups!

Here are the cons: I had to adjust the truss rod as the neck buzzed like a bee. I am surprised it passed QA like that. With my truss rod neck adjustment, the buzz went away quickly and no more issues there with just a little relief. The string trees were junk. I replaced them with rolling string trees. Much smoother now and a nice upgrade for only $10.00. Lastly, I replaced the nut with a Tusq graphite nut. Another $10.00. With that, this guitar is simply unbelievable and not just for the price! Just a really good guitar all around.

The fact that I could get an instrument of this quality for $80 before shipping is just plain crazy great. If you told me that my guitar would cost me $400 or more I would believe it. It is Fender MIM quality for a fraction of the price. If you want to save some cash and want Fender Tele MIM level quality, look no further. This is your lucky day.

Well worth the money!

18.03.2017
Okay, now I bought this product to fill both curiosity and a tonal gap in my guitar arsenal.

The following comments, I believe, are an honest appraisal from an experience guitarist.

I have another HB guitar, the semi hollow CST-24HB. The quality of that guitar was good, in fact very good for the price point. Hence, I thought I'd try a really budget HB guitar!

With guitars at this price you have to be realistic and understand where corners are cut. Namely tuners, the nut, electrics, setup and to a certain degree pickups. The HB-CST-24 was twice the cost of this "Tele"

The quality of the body and neck , including fretwork in both guitars is astounding, for the price.

I changed p/u's on the CST-24, tuners as well and cut a graphite nut (the stock one was way to high. This transformed an already pretty good £172 guitar to a very good one with an extra £75 spend.

Ok, back to the "Tele" £88 , "CHEAP"! yes, poor electrics yes, dull p/u's - to a certain degree (simple, cheap "Tele mods" cured that).

New nut required to replace plastic thing.

Changed saddles to compensated brass ones.

Will change neck p/u for either P90 or Humbucker(NEVER liked tele neck p/u's even on a real Tele. Possibly change the bridge p/u at some point.

Tuners are awful, changing those to locking ones asap.

Now, BOTH guitars setup easily to a LOW action, lower than I usually want, intonation improved immensely with compensated saddles on the "Tele"

To summarize:

Pros:
*Emminently upgradeable to achieve a good guitar for another £60 (better than a certain well known makes budget series)

* Setup well, very well in fact.

* Body one piece solid ash!

* Neck, one piece maple.

* Looks great.

* Stock, for a beginner with someone to set it up, with no upgrades, is an absolute bargain.

* My upgraded one will be great!

Cons:

* Experienced players will need to spend a little to bring up to their standards.

* Poor electrics, neck p/u, nut and tuners.

* Needs a setup.(action, intonation,nut)

* Body is heavy

In summary, I am happy with this guitar. I knew it would need work and a little spent on it to achieve what I regard as a good guitar. For a beginner it's a steal (after a setup)
