Great Value For The Money

26.02.2016
I've had this for two months before reviewing it, in order to write an accurate review of it.

I have used it in a band situation and at home, also in studio. The guitar has no problems tuning, the only part that deserves a modification is the bridge, cause you can't set the intonation properly, due to the type. The guitar is very clear and articulate, the pickups are very good for rock, blues, clean playing, but I'll have them replaced due to personal preference later on (the factory ones are great nevertheless!).
The finish is very very very good, it has just one very small misalignment on the body binding, but you'll see it only if you hold the guitar and examine it. The action came pretty high for my tastes, therefore I had to play with the bridge a bit. It holds its tuning better than my $600 Jackson KVX guitar when switching from inside to outside (in case of live playing). If you want to get this guitar to professional levels, I advise a bridge and tuners change (bridge with dedicated intonation control per string).
All in all, if you are looking for a great body with great sound, or maybe a modding platform, or maybe a cheaper Reed Smith but without compromising much of the quality, this guitar is for you. I recommend the tremolo version, though, because of the lower action on the higher frets.
One more thing worth noting - this guitar really delivers. I was skeptical of the other reviews at first, but I've convinced myself after having it in my possession for a month and a bit - my friend who tried it said it plays better than his Gibson SG Custom (price well over $2000), so this guitar, with a bit of caress and attention, will deliver great quality and for this price it's a bargain. I'm surprised on the fact that not as many people as it should be are buying and using them. I'd love custom options on Harley Benton guitars (like a custom shop).
Don't hesitate buying, if you don't like it (which I doubt), you have warranty and 30-days to return it.

Pleasently surprised

DaveC3, 19.04.2018
I had read many on-line reviews for this guitar so I decided to take a chance on it. The shipping box arrived very quickly. At first look I was concerned because the outside box was in very poor condition. I was expecting to find a broken guitar. However, the inner box had only a few signs of damage. The packing material saved the guitar. Upon close inspection of the guitar itself I found no damage.
The guitar is beautiful! It plays and sound incredible. In my almost 70 years I have owned many name brand guitars, Fender, Gibson, PRS, Epiphone and Rickenbacker. Now that I am retired I have bought a few budget guitars. By far this guitar outshines the rest. As a matter of fact I choose to play the CTS-24 over my Les Paul Supreme and Fender Strat.
I also build guitars and amps. There is no way I could come close to the cost or quality of the Harley Benton guitars. I do not know how they can provide such a quality guitar for the price. Well done!!
