Harley Benton ST-Junior BK Standard Series

Short Scale Electric Guitar

Not everyone has long fingers (and we're not implying something criminal here). Some people just like to play guitar with short scales, especially kids who have been learning on a classical guitar until now, and initially find things easier on a model such as the one here. Apart from that, this has the features and look of a traditional model.

Of course it can also be used as a space-saving travel guitar (for those who just cannot live without practising!)

I brought this as a presnet for my daughter and for the money I really wasn't expecting much. But I build guitars and do set-ups so all I really needed was a base for future improvements

On openign the vbox i was pleasantly surprised. The guitar arrived and was playable out of the box. It tuned up nicely and starting holding its tunign well after a good stretching of the strings. the action was about 2.5mm at the 12th fret and was playing buzz free. I lowered this to 2mm and it was still buzz free. I have played a lot of expensive guitars which can't say the same!!!

It weighed 5lb 2oz which is still a little heavy for my daughter, but she is only 3 and already enjoys having this on her lap and strumming it whilst I play my full size guitars. tbh I will be playing it myself sometimes as its perfectly acecptable as a real instrument

When i plugged this one in the bridge pickup was noticeably lower volume. they are all set to the same height which may be contributing to this but when I checked DC resistance the real reason became clear. bridge is 4.3k, middle is 5.2, neck is 4.7. they could be evened out in volume with height adjustment but they do work as they are and are relatively inoffensive. ( usually pay 3-5 times the price of this guitar for a single pickup!! I am a pickup snob)

The edges of the fretboard of the fretboard rolled and feels comfy as a result. the maple is also flatsawn as it should be and is covered in a really thin lacquer - actually much nicer than a heavy gloss finish. it feels sleek. It seems to have had dye on the rosewood board. firstly the dots are very dark, secondly there is a noticeable colour difference between the bare rosewood and lacquered side. but it is real rosewood and even the big name manufacturers use dye on a fretboard occasionally - I was more surprised they had bothered on such a cheap guitar

Obviously I am a tinkerer and have taken the guitar apart. Everything was as it should be. It has a large swimming pool route under the guard which will fit most types of pickups. It is clear from the neck pocket that the solid wood body is more of a blockboard style with strips of wood topped with a cap. I am fine with this for a cheap guitar. Its a style of construction used on much more expensive things such as mexican fenders. It is preferable to the heavy ply some min guitars are made from

Good value for a tiny guitar

T. Escobedo, 18.08.2018
I enjoy playing and modifying small electric guitars, and the Harley Benton ST Junior looked like a good candidate with an even better price. It took less than 10 days to arrive at my door here in Los Angeles, California. My first impression out of the box is quite favorable. Playability, sound and overall quality is good. The design seems to have changed a bit from the photos on the web site. It's no longer "top loading" string bridge, but rather a string-through-body design, similar to a Telecaster. I can verify a previous reviewer: the body does have a "swimming pool" route under the pickguard that will accommodate any style and configuration of pickups if one is so inclined. I already modified the wiring to the "Dan Armstrong Blender" circuit, and changed the strings to heavy gauge in order to accommodate normal EADGBE tuning. This requires setting the saddles for intonation, and some filing of the nut slots for thicker strings. On the "con" side, The frets are slightly sharp on the ends, though not too bad. Also, when changing the strings, I found the string ferrules in the rear are not tightly fit in the body at all. They fall out when there is no string to hold them in! Be warned until they fix this flaw! The bridge still has the top loading holes if one wishes to use them instead. All in all, I think this instrument offers a good value for someone wanting the novelty of a tiny electric guitar and works reasonably well with its intended tuning right out of the box. Not only do I recommend, but I'm thinking of buying another already.
