Wow so much more than I expected.
Best value guitar I’ve ever bought.
Had to make some slight adjustments.
The tonal variety from this is excellent, one of my faves both pickups on & split a little slap back and instant twangy Gretch .
I was thinking I would have to swap out the pickups, but no way I’m keeping these babies.
The finish is awesome.
The fretboard was a little dry but some lemon oil sorted that out.
If you’re not a brand snob check out HB you’ll be surprised.
Thanks Thomann I’ve already ordered my next Harley Benton.
And it’s great they haven’t forgot about us lefties, something the big boys should take note of.

Exceeded expectations

First of all, as a lefty it's hard to find any decent guitar that isn't black, let alone with a beautiful finish like this. There was some hesitation ordering online, especially from the USA but I heard good things and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did.


The guitar arrived quickly and I must say, the HB CST-24T LH is stunning. Fit and finish were perfect. The outer box had been torn completely through by the shipping company but the guitar was unaffected. The inside box was pristine.

The guitar sounds exquisite. I purchased all these extra tools expecting to need to do some work, at least on the frets and I didn't have to do anything. Frets were in perfect shape with no scratchiness and nice smooth ends.

Can't say enough good things. It's a beautiful guitar at any price, let alone around the $200 USD mark. Well done, Harley Benton and Thomann.

PRS alternative
Z.M.G. 17.05.2018
The alternative to PRS.
The overall impression is good. The guitar is well shielded, configured fine, she is beautiful, very comfortable neck, but the sound is not like the PRS (I have it), not enough low frequencies. The largest cause irritation and the tuning machines and nut.
Advantages:
price,
comfort,
exterior
Disadvantages:
terrible tuners and a nut,
drops the temolo arm,
not enough low frequencies

I do not regret the money spent

PRS eat your heart out!

I'm a Leftie, and I've had this version for 2 weeks. The colour has a hint of turquiose, but still is beautiful. As others have said, the finishing is not quite as good as a £1,000 guitar, but, hey, for £200 who's complaining; from a yard away it looks fantastic. I have gigged it, and it looks great in the photos taken then. The neck is made of 5 pieces of wood; three for the main length, a scarf joint at around the 2nd fret, and a piece to make up the heel. I had akready tried the PRS SE Custom. That had a 3 piece neck, and the finish and sound wasn't worth the extra £800 in my opinion. I already have the Paradise Flame CST24 LH, which I use the vibrato, and for this one, I have blocked the tremolo cavity to make it a hardtail.
It arrived in tune (!) with a straight neck, but the frets needed a polishing up, as the strings were scraping on them when bending. I also carefully lowered the action at the nut using the proper files (don't try it with a bread knife!) and it plays very fast.
One disappointment is the tone pot. It's either all on or full off, no in-between tonalities, so I'll have to change it. The tuning pegs are not great quality, but they keep it in tune. So if you changed them, and fitted a better tone knob, you'd have an exceptional guitar.
If you have a problem with the name on the headstock, then get over it. PRS eat your heart out.
