Harley Benton SC-450Plus LD Vintage Series
Grant R., 02.04.2019
Another very good Harley Benton guitar. I'm not sure without going back over my orders, how many HB guitars I've bought from Thomann, but it's quite a few. I've been a regular customer of the company for years now. They are a great company to deal with in my experience.

No surprises with the SC-450 Plus. It's a very nice L.P. style of guitar. I have owned a couple of L.P's made my the Gibson company, and a few Epiphone's as well. In my experience these HB L.P's are easily equal to or better than most Epiphone's I've owned, and very close to the Gibson's for nowhere near the same money.

I only play at home now, but have been playing guitar for over 50+ years, so feel a little bit qualified to comment on guitars and amps in general.

The Roswell pickups sound very nice and clear. They are very nice in the clean range, or when cranked up for overdrive sounds. The build quality of the guitar is very good. I had no issues with the example I have. The detailing is amazing at this price-point.
The hardware is generally pretty good, although I think the tuners could be a bit better. I do tend to bend strings a lot, and that usually is a pretty good test of tuning stability. I also use Elixir 11-49 strings for a better feel and tone. It came with 10-46's which were good, but I needed to change them for the larger strings.
Sustain is good. The action was pretty close to how I like it - i.e. not too low, but I made a slight adjustment to suit me and my playing style. The intonation was pretty good straight out of the box. As with any guitar you buy, setup is something I always expect to do to get the guitar to suit me. It's no big issue at all.
All in all, a very nice guitar. I haven't seen or played any other guitars in the L.P or Tele's or Strat's that compare with Harley Benton for quality at the price.
I happily recommend them to anyone, and do so here in N.Z.
Right now I'm eagerly awaiting another HB guitar to come into stock, to add to my collection.
GAS is a terrible thing / NOT !!! ;-))

Great Maple top worthy of a guitar 10 times the price.
The most comfortable electric neck I've used, by a mile, despite the gloss finish (which I always remove anyway). Hardware and knobs are decent at this price as are the rest of the fittings. I personally thought the tuners worked very well.
The action was nice straight out of the box and after slightly modifying intonation I was ready to go.
Con
This guitar cost me less than ¤160, bear that in mind...
The most obvious, but least (?) important hiccup was a large mark on the otherwise lovely mahogany back.
If cosmetics are important it would have been an instant return.
The coil split is relatively ineffective. A disappointment but not a deal breaker because the 'buckers themselves are not too bad.
I didn't get this guitar for a single coil sound anyway.
If you look very closely there are some flaws in the finish, but you have to look hard.
Don't be put off by these relatively minor quibbles.
The top is a stunner and I'd have bought this even if I had tested it first
