Low cost guitars have come a long way.
Bobblejot, 16.06.2020
This was my first Harley Benton after hearing a lot of good things and thought i would give them a go.

Originally i was looking at getting the gold top SC-450 with P90's but i didn't realise when i ordered it wasn't in stock so i changed my order to this and paid the difference. And i am glad i did this guitar is beautiful and for the money was pretty near flawless, i had one tiny finish flaw on the head stock where the black had run onto the side, but like i said it is tiny.

The setup was ok i adjusted the intonation and action after giving the frets and fret ends a bit of polishing and tidying up, they weren't bad but not perfect and the setup was more to get it to my own preference not that it wasn't playable.

Other than that this is a lovely guitar to play i have since added locking tuners but that is just personal preference.

Would i buy a Harley Benton again? well yes as i have just recently purchased and awaiting delivery of a TE-52 NA Vintage series Tele. And i will probably still buy the gold top when its back in stock :-)

HB CST-24T P90 rocks!
laobrob, 02.04.2020
This is truly a beautiful guitar. No flaws anywhere. Sounds, and plays great. Strings bend, and the longer fretboard is great. I highly recommend this guitar. Plays like a much more expensive instrument. A steal for the price! All pros, no cons!

wat een gitaar !
Bart Claeys, 20.08.2019
Ondertussen speel ik reeds 30 jaar gitaar en heb ik alle grote merken wel eens bespeeld. Dit is mijn 6de Harley Benton. Ik was reeds heel te spreken over hun single cut modellen die mijn inziens na wat afstelwerk het niveau van hun Americaanse voorbeeld kunnen envenaren. Deze maal de CST 24-t P90 besteld. Heb reeds een gitaar met P90 en ben echt wel verlekkerd op het P90 geluid.
Dit is echt een zeer goede gitaar, bespeelbaarheid is super. De nek is aan de dunne kant, beetje de wizard III neck van Ibanez, niet superdun zoals de Wizard prestige. De klank is mooi warm clean en overstuurd zijn alle snaren mooi te horen.
Ook metal is geen enkel probleem voor deze P90 natuurlijk wat meer ruis want het zijn single coils.
Ik kan enkel dus deze gitaar zeer warm aanbevelen.

For The Money, Buy It
Raging Tout, 21.10.2018
So, I have had this guitar for a short while, only played it a couple times but I have given a thorough inspection and play test.

Highly recommended.

I watched a bunch of videos online to get an idea of what to expect, quality wise. I have to say, this guitar is better than expected. No blemishes on the finish that I see. It tunes up great, plays great, feels great.

Only thing I noticed is the fret edges down at the 19th fret up to the 24th are a bit rough. Not rough enough to cut you but they definitely need a filing. Easy enough.

This is my first guitar with P90s, which was a big reason I bought it. I wanted a guitar that sounded different than my others. I've had a couple of Fender Strats over the years and always liked the single coil bite but never fell in love with the tone of them. We'll see if I love these P90s over time but I definitely like them so far. They have a nice bite with some warmth in the tone.

There's hum, as these are not hum canceling pickups but it does not bother me and if I ran a noise gate it would not matter. I sold mine a few years ago, I may buy another at some point.

Another reason I went for this guitar is the contoured body style. I have a PRS SE that is just a flat top and always like the contour bodies. This is quite nice.

I have yet to put the trem bar in the block as I would have preferred a stop tail style instead but there wasn't that option in this style of guitar. I figure it will not be worse than my PRS SE trem. I had to install a trem setter to get that to stay in tune. Might do that to this guitar as well. We'll see.

Beautiful guitar and for the money, I could buy two more guitars of different styles (which I am looking at doing in the future from Thomann) and have a bigger collection.

Again, highly recommended.
