Great guitar. Electronics are the weak point
Jvscoconuts, 13.05.2020
Bought this guitar a few weeks ago. It needed a good setup before playing, and I still have to change the strings.

In general the guitar plays really great. The features such as locking tuners, stainless steel frets, smooth fret ends and a good tremolo are really nice and well worth the money. The guitar plays and feels like a guitar that is much more expensive and it is light in weight.

The problem is the electronics. The tone pot makes too much noise and especially the bridge pickup is very microphonic. Of course, many people use Harley Benton guitars as a basis for an upgrade but in this case it is really necessary. I nevertheless gave it 5 stars because the most fundamental features are really good and for the price it shouldn't hold anyone back from buying this guitar.

All you need
JohnnyJanezic, 25.03.2019
The guitar has been paired with SH-6 Distortion pickups, and it screams! It is used live on drop B tuning and works perfectly well. It has also been used in studio (already 2nd HB guitar, that I know has been used in studio situations - so yeah you don't need to only play 500¤+ in studios).

The playability is very good compared to higher rank guitars. I would actually prefer this guitar for playing riffs and other rhythm based guitar parts, due to strings being more solid, which helps with speed and accuracy.

Features are just as good as on other guitars. This guitar has locking tuners, which work very well! I personally don't use the tremolo bar a lot, so I cannot help you with this one. But it should work, if you use it normally.

Stock sound wasn't sounding cheap at all. It was very warm on clean and massive on distortion. But pair it with better pickups and there you have it: a professional sounding/feeling/looking guitar.

This baby is everything that an ordinary undemanding guitarist would need. If you need a warhorse for gigging, this guitar might be the one for you. It might even get on tour with us by the end of the year!

Fantastic Guitar
Joe Mac, 11.06.2020
Everything is good about this guitar. Setup was very good and feels amazing to play. I read so many reviews about Harley Benton guitars and how people love them but feel a need to change the pickups. I love the sound. Sometimes I think people feel like it's the right thing to say. I've been playing guitars for many years and think these pups are great. Most electric guitar players use peddles anyway which kinda take over the true pickup sound.
Ok, my only concern is that when I purchase from Thomann by the time I get the delivery 8 weeks this time, only one box, and the cardboard container was so damaged I was surprised the guitar was in one piece. The headstock was dented but I can live with that. I hope Thomann can do a better packing job in the future.

Difficult to find a better alternative at the price
rabezi, 25.08.2019
After a close inspection the only flaw I could find was a bit of left-over ink marker and a small dent at the end of the fretboard. I'll steam out the dent later, it's merely cosmetic. The ink came off with just a bit of rubbing alcohol. Since I had the strings off, decided to oil the fretboard because it looked a bit dry. Couldn't help but marvel at the guitar afterwards. It's a looker!

Gave the guitar a setup and it plays like a dream. Not a single sharp fret or anything. The neck is relatively slim and more of a c-shape than the modern-c on my player strat but it feels comfy.

I was surprised that the pots actually work as more than just on/off switches. The volume has a smooth taper and is usable. However, the guitar might use a treble bleed or some higher resistance pots since the pickups can sound a bit muddy at times.

All in all I can't think of any better alternatives at the price. The specs for this price range are almost incomprehensible. It's a super-strat for a super price!
