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.

Quite Astonishing...

Pros: Beautiful, easy to play, well constructed (good fret job and nut), good high-gain sounds. Cheap.
Cons: Needed an intonation tweak. Not ideal for people wanting vintage PAF sounds. Fingerboard stains your fingers.

Some time ago I purchased a Harley Benton TE-90 QM Trans Red, and I was truly amazed at the quality considering the price, so I decided to splash out a very reasonable amount for this PRS-inspired model - it looked good in the photos, and EytschPi42 on YouTube gave the trem version the thumbs up, so why not?

It arrived fairly quickly, and as usual was well packed in a big Thomann box. No damage, everything lovely, I was happy. The flame maple finish is superb, not as 3D as a real PRS of course, but mine has a sort of checkerboard effect which I really like.

After a careful inspection, I could only find one very minor cosmetic flaw - a small dark blob on the binding on the underside of the lower horn, so no-one would see anything normally (unless they were lying on the floor looking up...) Set-up wise the frets seem really quite level, and the action can go lower than I like without buzzing under light picks. The main adjustment I had to make was to pull the adjustable bridge back a fair bit for correct intonation - it's spot-on now. The nut is cut at the perfect height (better than the TE-90) which is great to find on a cheap guitar.
The pickups have a high output, lots of bite with a tight low end, great for high-gain sounds as the bass stays coherent, though maybe not so good for vintage bluesy sounds.
The neck is a kind of flattish D-shape, very comfy and lovely to play, with no particularly sharp edges.
The ebanol fingerboard is fine, but I'd recommend cleaning it otherwise your fingers will go black when you play until the dye has rubbed off...
Hardware is great for the price, tuners stay in tune, pots are smooth and quiet and the bridge adjusts and stays put well.

Very highly recommended, I love it and I'll be buying another HB in April. A DC-Custom probably.
