Great Guitar
Roger6897, 20.07.2015
I recently purchased a CST24T Harley Benton. I was extremely pleased with it except for a few minor things. I really don't like the telecaster knobs on this guitar - they are too tall to look good on an arch top. This cheapens the appearance of a good guitar - they should be using "speed knobs" and mine have already been changed (amber looks best!) The guitar I received did not have the Indian Rosewood fingerboard specified, but a smooth ebonol (man-made ebony substitute) fingerboard. As I actually prefer ebony fingerboards to most rosewood, I was prepared to accept this change to the advertized material. The frets were not perfect and needed some work to seat, level and polish them, but I guess this is to be expected at the price. There was one small wiring issue which meant I had to postpone the guitar's first gig - the earth wire from the tremolo claw had not been threaded through the tunnel from the trem cavity or connected to the electrics, which caused the inevitable loud buzz through my high gain Laney amp. After I took the guitar home and finished the factory's soldering work for them, I took the CST24T on another gig and it performed excellently all night (two and a half hours gig, non-stop, all on the new guitar.) My back-up instrument - a PRS SE EG with EMG pickups - stayed in its case all night! I doubt anyone will believe this, but it actually happened - a guitarist in the audience came up to me afterwards and said "those (big name American guitar company) guitars are really costly, but they're worth every penny, aren't they?" He honestly thought I had been playing a "real" USA-built guitar. I am now extremely pleased with the guitar and I have ordered the hollow-body version. I have owned many guitars with this appearance, some made in the USA, some by the USA company's Korean production and some made in Asia and marketed by a well-known wholesaler in the UK. This, in my opinion, has more of the flavour and quality feel of the USA guitars than do any of the others. The important things - the finish, the Wilkinson pickups, the operation of the volume and tone controls, the lovely smooth Wilkinson trem and (after the frets were smoothed and levelled) the action of my guitar are all excellent - no upgrades urgently needed. Very playable and so nice to look at I am still taking it out of it's case just to take another look. Owner satisfaction is so high it's easy to ignore how little I paid for it - there is an old saying (usually to justify paying a stupidly high price) "quality is remembered long after price is forgotten". With this guitar, that saying is still correct. One small suggestion (although the electrics are surprisingly versatile as the tone and volume actually WORK on this guitar) - if they used the four-wire Wilkinson humbuckers and a push-pull tone control for split-coil sounds it wouldn't cost much more to produce and would bring it even closer to the performance expected from this type of guitar. Surely this could be done and still keep the guitar incredibly affordable. Verdict - I'm very pleased. Thanks Thomann.

This was a major supprise when I got it. I couldn't believe how incredible it looked if I would have paid triple I still wouldn't for some other brand I wouldn't have got a better looking guitar. the sound is awesome everything works excellent and it was in tune when I received it and it only took 6 days to the states that being said I would have received it sooner if I had known about somethings they should let you know about in advance like when ordering from abroad your bank will most likely flag it as fraud unless you let them know in advance that's the first thing. the other was I was going to get an thoman amp also but after a few days I got another email that they couldn't send it to the usa due to it being a 220 and not 110 as we use here in the states it would be a lot smother process if they would state these couple of things if that had been the case I would have revcieve my shipment at least a week sooner. That being said though the coustomer service was excellent and as soon as I was informed and the bank thing straightend out it was shipped out emediatly. I HAVE TO SAY ONE THING ABOUT THE REVIEWS THAT NIT PICK ABOUT THE ABS0LUTLY MINOR IMPERFECTIONS WHAT THE HELL GUYS ITS A 200 DOLLAR GUITAR THAT YOU COULDNT GET CLOSE TO WITH A $1000 TO GET ALL THE EXTRAS. I REALLY HAD TO LOOK SUPER HARD TO FIND ANY AND THEY WERE SO MINOR NO ONE COULD SEE THEM FROM A FOOT AND A HALF AWAY THE ONLY THING I MIGHT FALT ON THIS GUITAR ARE THE TUNERS THEY WORK FINE BUT COULD BE SMOOTHER AND THE PICKUPS ARE JUST A LITTLE DARK SOUNDING BUT NOTHING A LITTLE EQ ING WONT TAKE CARE OF OVERALL GREAT GUITAR.((((( HOW ABOUT MAKING ONE IN A PURPLETHT WOULD BE AWSOME I THINK ))))
