after the good reviews of the products, i wanted to try it. i am glad i did. it is a very well built instrument. i like the ebonol fretboard. inlays are beautifully made. nothing bad about the looks just some "you need to look very carefully" kind of imperfections here and there. you know, not beautifully rounded fret edges, some sanding marks over the binding kinds of stuff. i don't really care.

after reading the comments made here, i was expecting a fully set guitar. however, it was in a very very bad shape. almost unplayable out of the box. they just strung and tuned it and sent. i had to spent two hours to make it play. after that it plays great.

the wilkinson pickups. i wasn't expecting that quality. they are very good. not only for the price: they are very good!

tuners are the low quality grovers. they hold the tuning though. no complains there.

pros:
- it is a very good guitar. i am not going to say for the price because i have other expensive guitars and i don't see that much difference. if i change the brand name on the headstock nobody would say it is a cheap guitar.
- for this price range, very good hardware. tuners, bridge, pickups... very good. time will show.

cons:
- setup took a lot of time because of the uneven frets. i had to hammer a couple of frets to take care of the string buzzing.
- truss rod was an issue because of the paint and glue residue. i had to scrape them off because the allen key could not go into the slot.
- plastic parts are overlooked. you know, things like truss rod cover and pickguard. they are roughly cut. it is a simple fix but annoying. they should pay more attention to small details.

overall: i am happy with the guitar. i am going to order some of the other harley bentons for sure.

Nice but really quite different from its more famous counterpart

First impressions - more detailed review to come.

Ordered Friday afternoon, in my hands in the UK by Tuesday afternoon - better than some UK dealers !.

Out of the box despite inspection tag from Thomann it was no where need in tune and the action rather like a cheese grater - very high.

Had to lower the bridge as far as it would go in order to get anywhere near a decent action. Could still do with going lower but it won't.

Boy is it heavy - body seems a lot thicker than its namesake - if it really is mahogany (i'll take it apart soon and find out) its too heavy - heavier than some of my Les Paul's - I'll weigh it when I get time.

Grover tuners I generally get on with and while these stay in tune, the gold finish looks a bit thin and makes them look cheap.

Finish on the rest of the guitar is fine - gloss black all over - no imperfections as far as I can see.

It sounds nice - the pickup toggle switch and pots seem cheap but the wilkinson pickups are nice.

Fingerboard feels odd. Not sure about this ebanol stuff. I would rather have had a rosewood option and paid a little more as this doesn't have any grain.

So far not found any dodgy fretwork - they seem even enough with no buzzing (bearing in mind I can't get the action any lower).

Lets face it - its a £130 guitar and its good value at that price.
If you want an SG without the expense or quality of big G - look to Epiphone for a licensed clone that will have a similar feel, weight and sound to its more expensive brother but recognise you'll get somewhat lower quailty.

Its difficult to argue this against an Epiphone - its probably £100 cheaper but you gain a lot of weight and the disadvantages of that poor quality bridge or neck angle giving you more of a playing challenge with the action.
