I love this guitar!!!
12.11.2016
Hello everyone!

This is my first Harley Benton guitar, and my fourth guitar in total. I bought this guitar because I liked the look of it and I needed a low priced guitar for practice.

The very first thing I usually do with a new guitar is a complete setup. I was so happy when I saw that this guitar was perfectly adjusted by Thomann. The only thing I did was to tune the guitar.

I play the guitar for more than six years. I've never owned or tested a guitar with such a comfortable neck. It suits my hand perfectly! I have to mention that neck binding is nice and makes this guitar look awesome. Also, I would like to emphasize the fact that action, neck relief and intonation were perfectly adjusted, and this in conjuction with the nice neck shape helps alot in very fast playing.

The pickups have a lot of gain, and I really like their sound, because I usually play Heavy Metal and Power Metal. They also seem to be adjusted in a height I like.

I love this guitar and I will buy more Harley Benton guitars in the future.

Thanks!

Great riff maker for almost pocket change
Medvedini, 24.01.2020
When you see this guitar you understand at once that now there will be METAL! Of course, its shape is 88% of reason I (and I am sure that most of others) bought it.
But! After getting this guitar and trying it for a couple of weeks I was really amazed by two things (for its cost especially!):
1) Sound. It's stable, strong and have nice reaction to attack level of playing. Noise is minimal.
2) Build quality. Frets are really smooth as on more expensive instruments I've tried before. Guitar neck is of comportable thickness and its head head looks absolutely on point with such shape.
It's absolutely right decision that there is no tremolo but there is tried and true tuneomatic. No tremolo means no troubles with tune.
The only minus as I see is overbalancing, so it's a little bit unusually to play and you need to have some tension in left hand. But after about 2 weeks I become accustomed with it. And surely it's not convenient to when seated, so Stand for Metal!
Nice guitar. Really. And good service of Thomann. Cheers from Russia.

I wish had bought this months ago!
Dad Gad, 28.02.2020
I had bought 2 guitars from US dealers that don't check guitars before shipment. A $500.00 Ibanez arrived with a seized Truss rod. A $170.00 Squire arrived with a split body due to a poor neck install. Thomann broke my run of bad luck with a near perfect guitar for a lot less money. Not only is it a good value it was checked before shipment. Shipping damage can happen. No reason to ship a customer a bad product. Thomann got that right. While at this price you can't expect perfection it was much better than you might expect for the price. The frets need a minor dressing on the tips and the nut slots needed a little polish work. Setup was fine out of the box. Great value! My first HB won't be my last! Shipping to the US took 15 days due to the US Postal service letting it sit still for 5 days after clearing Customs.

Bargin Price and Excellent Customer Service
29.11.2014
This is my first purchase from Thomann and I must say I've been impressed with the service from start to finish. I don't usually write reviews but after dealing with Thomann on this order I thought I would,

I chose this guitar after reading the reviews, with the majority all highlighting the quality at a great price. I'm only an amateur guitarist so my technical review of the guitar is purely based upon my experience level.

Firstly the RX-10 BK Rock Series guitar arrived and looks great, the quality appearance certainly lived up to the great reviews I'd read, with the gloss black finish, chrome effect knobs and simple sleek offset V design. Sounds great both on clean settings and wound up on distortion. Picks give a great range for what I need from a guitar and the looks live up to a metal "mean and moody" guitar.

Second thing I wanted to mention was the service of Thomann which should be highlighted as we all too often get used to poor or average service from companies. I've found Thomann refreshing different, from order placement, shipping, tracking and after service communication all being excellent. The shipping cost of 10 Euro is great (and cheaper than most costs on other auction sites even in UK) and was a fast service that could be tracked all the way and the item arrived very well packed. Found a slight problem with the shipping, but after contacting Thomann they resolved the situation quickly and efficiently and to the satisfaction of all parties.

All in all, a great product at a reasonable cost and with excellent service.

Will definitely be buying from Thomann again.
