Extreme value for money!

20.01.2016
This isn't my first Harley Benton instrument so I already had an idea about the quality, especially of the upper tier of HB instruments, but still, a guitar that good for such little money never ceases to surprise!

I've bee playing for more than 15 years and, compared to my early days, these new cheap guitars are light years ahead in terms of build quality, features and quality control. And since HB is Thomann's in-house brand, you get a lot more bang for your buck!

First off, the guitar is stunning. Simply beautiful and built extremely well. Finish is nice and smooth everywhere. I've looked thoroughly but could not find runs, hairs or any imperfections in the finish whatsoever.
It is also put together excellently. There are no crooked or loose screws, no gaps anywhere, no badly cut plastics, everything is just smooth and nice.

The hardware's really good, as well. The bridge, while not extremely substantial, is really solid and works well. Same goes for the tuners. Solid, steady and smoothly progressive. Combined with a perfectly cut nut, the guitar just needs a tune and it's ready to play.
The action can get ridiculously low without buzzing, dead frets and the such.
The pots are equally good. Nothing extremely fancy, granted, but functional and solid.
Only con I found was a slightly higher fret, nothing a couple of taps with a hammer can't solve!

Sound is also very nice. The Wilkinson pickups are spot on on that classic rock crunch and work well in any situation. Of course, rock and metal are in its wheelhouse but you can get some pretty full, round cleans as well. Not bad!
If I could gripe on about one thing, that would be the 24 frets that place the neck pickup closer to the bridge and the difference in tone isn't that drastic. But that's just nitpicking, to be honest.

Summing up, this is a beautiful guitar for very little money and I can't really find a single thing wrong with it. It's a highly recommended buy, worth every penny! For beginners and... financially challenged pros alike!

Great For The Money

21.06.2016
Received the guitar today in good time. The packing was sufficient that coming throughfrom Germany to Spain to the Canary Islands no problems occurred with the instrument inside or the outer box. The CONS first were, the fret ends are pretty sharp on both the treble and bass sides and will need to be dressed, the additional frets on this model don't offer me more playability and I personally would prefer just 22 to the 24. The biggest con for me was that the old HB SG models had the same profile as the Gibson and Epiphone SGs whereas the new models all have the extended top bout and the strap button is on the back of the top horn which I had assumed to be designed to aid the pivotal position to help with neck heaviness. However, having played the guitar it actually works the opposite way and renders the instrument for me unplayable in a standing position as it is the most neck heavy guitar I have ever played in my long musical career. I would reckon the design now owes more to the pressures from Gibson than improvement. For my own comfort I will change the button to the neck to body join and may use a strap I have that sits over both shoulders.

The PROS are really easy to evaluate as the guitar plays and sounds really nice, way better than you would expect at this price point. Their are blemishes in the finish but nothing major and certainly not a deal breaker. I'm OK with both four and two pot, double pickup, guitars but some people may find the two pot control layout easier to use live. I say this sincerely as having owned and gigged some very expensive guitars during the past few decades I would be totally happy gigging this guitar,once I fix the playing position issue. This is not a beginners instrument as with a change of balance point and some light neck work it is a suitably good looking and sounding guitar to gig! Get back to the equal horn size and position and you have a major winner at an incredible price Thomann.
