Amazing for the price!

Nickanimal, 19.10.2017
My first electric guitar (I've owned 2 bass guitars so far) so I don't have much to compare it to but for the price I have very little to complain about.

The only things I'd consider as negatives are that the strings it came with were okay but nothing special. I re-strung it with a £7 pack of DR DDT-10's and it sounds great! Also I'd have preferred a thru-body tremolo-style bridge as I've heard they have better sustain than the Tune-o-matic bridge this has but it's fine for a beginner like me.

The meh is that it needed a bit of a set up, but that's fine as that can be needed on more expensive guitars too.

Pro's then. I can't find any faults with the finish, overall build quality is great and I love the design, practicality be damned! It's not too heavy and the tuners are fine and smooth. Sound is great too though I'm sure the humbuckers it comes with aren't the best, but again it's perfectly fine for a beginner like me. Finally the price, way better than I was expecting for this kind of money!

Lots of guitar for little money

Mr Schmidt, 09.01.2018
What can a guitar for under 100¤ ...? Ordered shortly, the body shape lures me. Quickly delivered, carefully packed, delivered completely undamaged despite the exotic shape. Perfect painting and yes, surprisingly well made. The bridge and mechanics are cleanly chrome plated. The frets are well-ridged and playable at the edges. The pots are clean and efficient, the toggleswitch switches precisely and without play. Neck / body transition is very conservative, since there are now elegant solutions, who is used to Strats, but should have no problems. What does not work are the factory strings and the string position is unplayable high. So put on strings of 10 and adjust the neck and the strings. Now the sound, the humbuckers are ok and usable, there are better but as I said, we are talking about a guitar that does not cost 100¤. Beginners should have someone by the hand, who knows about guitars, otherwise the entry is unnecessarily difficult, but I think the body shape anyway not suitable for absolute beginners, but is a matter of taste. I give full marks in all categories, my instrument is well made for the price and has far exceeded my expectation. In addition the steep optics and a base, which it is worthwhile to upgrade if necessary. I am happy about the purchase and have fun with the part. My first but certainly not my last Harley Benton
