I have no idea how Harley Benton do it, but they've done it again. This is my 3rd HB in 1.5 years and I am consistantly amazed each time. The quality of this guitar is amazing to say the least. When it showed up, I was prepping to do a lot of tweaks/adjustments etc but I didn't have to do a single thing with it. I could play it straight out of the box. The action and intonation was perfectly set up. The guitar was even still in tune after being shipped from Germany to Ireland!! :) Amazing!! As for the pickups, they are insanely good for a guitar of this price. Lovely bright tone off the top but also highly versatile. If you wish to muddy up your tone a bit, it takes a slight bit of tone knob adjusting and hey presto! Also, sustains for days. This is without a doubt the most comfortable of all my guitars and is a lot better than most of my higher end models. I bought this guitar when it was priced at ¤222 and that was an insane price. It is now ¤199!! What are you waiting for?? Get one, you wont regret it! Thanks again Thomann! :) -J
Pros .Finish is fantastic, the book match is dead center and there are no over sanding areas or bubbling in the clear coat. .tuners are good quality and hold tune well. .light weight (7 Lbs) and feels comfortable up against your body.
Cons .No back panel makes it difficult to switch out pickups. .slight buzz even after adjustment and setting the action and bow/ relief. Suspect uneven frets. .The inlays are sloppy and don't look professional.
