A really nice Tele type for a great price
John8610, 15.01.2015
I am big fan of Telecaster Type guitars. They have that certain unique sound that just chimes out so nicely. Being a left handed player, I was limited to this Harley Benton TE-20 Thomann offers at such a great low price. My expectations were not huge, given the price. When the guitar arrived here in the USA, upon opening the box, that all changed. First of all, this is a really nice looking guitar. The fit and finish are beyond good. Once I held it, the guitar felt great in my hands. It's got some heft for a Basswood bodied guitar. The neck felt wonderful and surprisingly, even with its low price, there wasn't a single rough fret end. It's super easy to get up and down the neck on this TE-20.

Now comes the real test. I plugged it into my Fender Champion 100 not knowing what to expect. I started in the bridge position, because that's how I know if this guitar has the Tele sound I love. I'm happy to report that there it was, all the TWANG one could hope for. The sound was true and excellent in cleans. I tried it with some gain, and sure enough, it still sounded wonderful. Next I worked my way through the pup selection switch and fiddled with the tone and volume knobs as I played. I could not find anything about this guitar to dislike sound wise. The build quality is very good, the guitar looks great, and most importantly it sounds really good. The one small gripe I might mention, the tuners a little bit small, but that's not a deal breaker at all. Oh and did I mention how well this guitar stays in tune? I did a lot of bending and hard playing, and much to my amazement, the guitar held tune really well. Another thing that really blew me away...once this guitar had come down to temp from the long journey, it tuned up really quickly. The action was just about perfect for me, and even with the 3 barrel bridge, the intonation from the factory was almost spot on. Are you kidding me? I have guitars that cost 10 times as much that don't come intonated that well.

So in closing, I have to say, I can recommend this guitar with no hesitation. I don't know how Thomann does it, but I'm glad they do.

Perfect service, great communication throughout, and the people at Thomann are wonderful to deal with. Thank you Thomann for getting my inexpensive TE20 to me in good shape. Now if you would only offer a Harley Benton RB 600 and a few more Strat and Tele types in left handed models, my musical world would be a better place.

I'm totally blown away
Giboman, 14.01.2019
As a left handed player, my options to try a guitar before i buy is very limited. I own several Gibson custom shops and a couple of Fender strats. You know the quality is good and you know you will pay a premium price for the privilege.
I thought i would take a chance on an HB, nothing to lose right? The price is incredibly low, less than a good night out on the town.

When the HB arrived i was extremely surprised at the build quality. The finish is flawless and the quality of the hardware is excellent. I immediately changed the existing strings to a set of 10-46's and lowered the action and needed to tighten the truss rod 1.25 turns. The nut was fine and the slots didn't need opening for the heavier guage strings. The intonation needed a quick adjustment then she was ready to play. This guitar feels good, i mean really good. It plays as well as my historic 58 and my deluxe strat. Now time to plug it into my DSL40cr... OMG not only does it play like a Tele, it sounds like a Tele! I've been playing this for a week and haven't touched another guitar, it really is amazing!

Of course no guitar is set up for your personal style of playing out of the box but the only issue i have is a slight lack of sustain. This could be down to the nut, the saddles, the bridge material or the fact the strings are not pushed through the body. But for the price of this guitar it's a very minor issue. Will i experiment and change a few things? Possibly in the future if i get bored playing it. But for now it's just great.

If you are an experienced player like myself, do not be fooled by this rediculously low price! Just order one and guarantee you will be blown away!
There is one more problem... It will not be the only HB you will buy!
