+ Superb features - Defects in finish

Alexander K, 03.09.2014
The guitar's features and playability are just superb, but the quality control seems to have been sleeping the time my guitar passed it.

The guitar is very well built, but the satin lacquer has gone bubbles on the end of the neck above the resonator hole, and there is a place on the edge that is left unfinished. Moreover, i found some lacquer on the strings (!). I wonder if they were put on the guitar right after finish before it dried.

Guitar body was all in woodpowder when unpacked - it's definitely from the installation of pickup, and it made a bad impression.

The sound is good, but i'll try another strings instead of dirty ones installed - it may turn out to be even better.

My appeal to the shop'd managers and to chinese plant managers: pump up quality control! Othe HB guitars i bought were absolutely superb, but this one is designed and built great, but its finish is far from perfect. But even mentioning this, the guitar has no competitors with its features (solid top+narrow nut+strong design).

Good for the price if you do a bit of work

TomGoss, 28.01.2018
Well and constructed. Wood and materials seem ok.
As with all Harley Bentons, expect to do a bit of work before being able to play it enjoyably, Sharp and rough frets and a roughly cut nut are common....as I experienced here. I do guitar work so it's not a big problem for me, but it someone had to pay someone to do it it sort of negates the economy of getting a low cost guitar.
Tuners work ok but I think they can fail or break quite easily (based on previous experience and looking at them).

Good value if you can do setups and repairs yourself....not so good if you have to pay someone to do it.
