It's not perfect
Ivans V., 28.04.2020
This is my 1st harley benton guitar. It had to be something good but...

pros: wood work, frets, nothing wrong here. good locking tuners, good nut, ok for 500 EUR guitar

cons: these emg's are really made in Indonesia.
volume and tone knobs are very cheap, toggle switch also feels very cheap.
the worst - bridge pickup was broken. it sounds like single coil pickup and produces a lot of noise. I even though to return back this guitar without any doubts and forget about harley benton for ever but I tried to experiment and dig into it. I changed them, checked wiring, issue was 100% clear - bridge pickup. I took spare emg 81 and problem has gone. Maybe its hard to detect such issues while they checked it in their facility, I do not know, it produced sound but it was wrong sound.
Also, tool for truss rod does not fit.

This is my review after 1 day of usage.

Nothing but almost the best
Banga, 23.11.2020
Not that articulate but I must tell you this is an amazing guitar. I wouldn't change the pickups because they are very dynamic, the neck is flawless, a joy to play, I immediately tuned it B to B and even the factory strings are nice. Stays in tune despite my very hard picking, very well balanced, and gorgeous to boot. I only dislike where the top strap button is so I moved it to the end of the top horn, and I'm currently having issues with the input jack, after getting it in may, and I am in the process of contacting Thomann. Otherwise this guitar is an absolute joy to play.
