Nice guitar for a price

andrejgr, 08.06.2016
I was tempted for some time, to get archtop guitar. I'm playing for 40 years now, I own several acoustic and electric guitars and also one hollow body LP shape. But I never really had archtop and the jazzy sound of it. I wasn't prepare to spend a lot, since I'm no pro and music is my hobby, not living. So I decided, after reading several reviews, to go and get this guitar. For me at that price, THE most important thing is quality of body and neck, all the rest can be easily replaced if needed. 200? is a gamble, I was willing to take blind.
When I received this guitar, i was pleasantly surprised. Just what I wanted (well, stil can not compare to Ibanez George Benson that I had oportunity to play) and expected. I have read in advance of all the bigsby problems, bridge problems, so I immediately unscrew top part of bigsby, put some wood under it and flattened the angle to bridge - the design is kind of silly, but managable. The only thing really annoying is the pickups, that buzz in their seats, so I guess I'll have to take the out, see the spring coil and adapt.
Neck is great, straight, in tune - if not, brige is adjustable, bigsby does it's job, not the greatest, but I have never used it before and have no technique so it's all right for me.
Without amp this guitar sounds nice and jazzy, just like I expected. It's very solid built and quite heavy.
With amp, (I use Fender Mustang) and with proper amp sound set, i prefer to use clean Fender Twin that sound great with this guitar, from jazz to rockabilly.
Pickups are nice sounding low output. tuners are ok., doing their job and keeping intonation.

All in all, I'm a happy camper.

After owning it half a year, I still like this guitar a lot. Adjusted some height of pickups to my liking, the rest is good.

Harley Benton Big Tone White......Fantastic

07.04.2016
Canadian Maple Body & Neck gives the guitar its weight, It resonates beautifully without being plugged in. The finish is Great, no cracks or dents, The Paintwork and bindings are really good and what I would expect of a much more expensive model.
Tuners feel quite sturdy and the set up straight out of the box was fairly good, Intonations slightly out in places but nothing major. However probably the lowest, worst point is the floating bridge. Its not a great fit to the body, I can actually see daylight underneath it. also, Its very flimsy. This could be caused by the fact that the bigsby based tremolo is the incorrect type for this type guitar. The string break angle is very acute causing the bridge to bow forward when any pressure is put on the tremolo. Set up with 12`s, there is a lot of pressure over the string rollers. However, having given the guitar a good test, I found the bridge did stay I place and tune. This all prior to plugging it in. Once plugged into my amp, wow. Fantastic. The volume and tone pots are very responsive and work even when turned to almost off, (Very Rare With Cheap Guitars) I found all the electrics to be very good. The Scratchplate is not the prettiest but not a major problem for me. overall, As a owner of an original Hagstrom Jimmy, The Harley Benton is fantastic value for money and I will be using mine live with my band once I have sorted a few minor set up issues relevant to me. Very Impressed.
