Good value; Very cool and unique configuration
NormDePlume 05.06.2023
As far as I'm aware you can't get an SG Junior in Heather Poly from any other manufacturer outside of a custom shop order. At $150 this one is a screaming value if it's even borderline playable - and mine is much better than that. The setup isn't perfect, no, but it's as good as the average guitar hanging on a retail shop wall. The frets are actually finished pretty well and are level enough for medium-low action without any other intervention. The single pickup is actually fantastic, a vintage low-output Alnico P90. The electronics, including full-size MIK pots, look good and function well.

The guitar is light and super resonant. It is the most resonant solidbody I own, and I own a number of much more expensive guitars.

A couple nitpicks: I could do without the goofy "Roswell" branding on the pickup cover, and the best thing about vintage-style tuners are split shafts, but these ones are solid shafts. I swapped both for about $20.

Very good.
Garpez 17.10.2023
Very good looking, nice finished, I like the sound of the pick-up. Keep in tune decently.

Cons: fretwork is average, some uneven frets (at least on mine, it may depend on the single items) but for the price is fine.

Beautiful finish
Mr. Oaks 02.11.2023
Everything you would expect on a Junior guitar and more. Lighter in weight than the rest of the HB Junior line. The finish is fantastic and it plays really well. Very comfortable to play while standing due to the strap peg being located near the neck/body joint.

Un pickup, tanto suono! La DC-60 è abbastanza per tutto?
Anonymous 03.10.2023
Premetto che la mia esperienza di chitarrista live dice Gibson e Fender custom shop da oltre 10 anni. Avevo bisogno di una chitarra con poche pretese da portare in sala prove e per 120 eur mi è sembrato un buon affare (seppur diffidente).

Risultato:
Meccaniche: vintage molto precise e ben installate
Body/manico: ottima verniciatura, leggera nel complesso, profilo manico comodo e bilanciata. Fret posati dignitosamente anche se ho visto qualche leggero dislivello. Cose purtroppo che ho constatato in chitarre ben più costose.
Intonazione: precisa in tutta la tastiera nonostante il wraparound
Elettronica: ben funzionante, saldature soddisfacenti.
Ponte: wraparound, ha le viti regolazione altezza e profondità.

Ma passiamo al live. Decido di portarla alla prova del nove, due ore di musica dal vivo presso un locale in città. Il pick up unico ruggisce e i controlli volume/tono rispondono alla grande trasformando il suono da un brano all'altro a seconda del bisogno. Il peso è trascurabile, davvero comoda. Non si scorda facilmente durante l'esecuzione. Ma ancora meglio, ad alti volumi regge senza fischiare come mi era già accaduto con chitarre economiche di marchi più blasonati.

Insomma non abbandonerò di certo le mie custom shop, ma ragazzi....vi assicuro che per questo rapporto qualità prezzo Harley Benton ha conquistato un cliente in più, credo che ne acquisterò ancora. Se le suona con dignità contro strumenti che hanno 6/700 € di sovrapprezzo.
Alla prossima HB!
