Nice not expensive guitar
laurentium, 18.11.2020
I really love this guitar. I never had any guitar with 628mm scale length, and I must say I got to love it for that. I play mostly jazz, but really want to play some rock stuff sometimes, and wanted to have a guitar that can do that. Of course, for the versatility, I would like to see a neck pickup also on this guitar, so I could play even jazz on it. I think it should sound good, as it seems to have a less brighter sound than other guitars, with maple caps. First I thought I would get it to a luthier to get it routed for a neck pickup, but then I started reading about the way Junior type of guitars connect to the body, and realized that modding it could make the neck not stand the pressure and ruin the guitar. Especially if I would like to have some 11s strings on it. So I guess I would buy an another Harley Benton Special Double Cut TV Yellow with 2 P90, if they decide to make one. Until then I am enjoying this one.
The guitar came setup really well. I measured all the specs, and it came close to what Gibson recommends for it's solid body guitars. As I own it already, for almost a year, I got the chance to make some weather influenced adjustments of the truss rod, and it holds up really well.
Tuners - not the best for staying in tune, but still ok.
Love the color. It's not the TV Yellow as you would expect on classic guitars, but I think I like it better, this mustard yellow.
Still, you should know that the fretboard is stained. They made it so, to look close to black. And the stain they used gets on your fingers after you play it, but can be easily washed away. Eventually it goes away, after several weeks/months (depends on how often you play it). But no big deal, I can live with that, for the price ))
I must say I'm really impressed with the quality you get for this price, and I mean mainly for playability. Good job HB!

Unbeatable for the price but it's worth upgrading it
shauny155, 10.10.2020
I bought this guitar over a year ago now from Thomann and I had to wait a few weeks for it to arrive (which I was informed about in advance) well packed and without damage.
The first thing is it isn't TV yellow. It's more like a Dijon mustard colour which is no bad thing but was a bit of a shock.
The set up was ok but the nut had been cut a little lopsided (it was slightly higher at one side than the other). This didn't bother me that much as I wasn't expecting that much for the price so I took it to my local guitar shop who did a full set up on it.
The neck is beautiful, slim and easy to play. The whole fit and finish of the guitar feels like a much more expensive instrument which for under £200 is just what you're looking for. The Wilkinson Tuners work as they should and the electronics all seem solid and crackle free.
I'm one of those players that likes to tinker with my guitars.
After playing it for a while and doing a few gigs with it I found that the action was a little too high for my taste and the design of the bridge wouldn't allow me to lower it any further so I bought a new wraparound bridge (cost about £18). I also found the pickup was squeeling a bit at high gain settings so I swapped that for another (£35).
With the set up, new bridge, new pickup and a set of locking strap buttons (essential if you want to keep your guitar in one piece) my £189 guitar has cost me about £300. I still feel this was a bargain for such a solid instrument.
If you're looking for a LP Junior for a fraction of the price of the main brand then you could do much worse than this.

Fantastic
Orca, 16.11.2020
This is my first venture into Harley Benton gear. I was a bit sceptical and thought I wouldn't be getting much for my money. Not quite TV yellow but still a really nice translucent colour. I am hugely surprised. Quality is as good as any Guitar 3 times the price, sound is pretty good, not that much different to a high end P90, it's got the classic DC JR sound for sure. This ticks all the boxes. Needed set up, but the neck and fretboard is perfectly straight, no sharp frets whatsoever, machine heads are fantastic and smooth... What can I say. I own the big G version and it had more flaws in than this... Well done HB and for this price I'm about to purchase a couple more. Great service Thomann.

Beautiful finish and tone
Rob Mac, 09.09.2020
I'd wanted this for a long time. I'm in Australia. Unfortunately there were problems with postage (coronavirus?) and the cost was much more. The guitar finish was perfect except........ the bridge wasn't in the right spot. I had to extend the position screws by small metal blocks at the posts of the rear of the bridge. It now intonated perfectly using the adjustable saddles. It plays and sounds great. Perfect vintage Rock/Blues machine! I sent my info to Thomann with pics of my mod and they kindly sent me a discount. A great company to deal with.
