Mario818, 04.11.2012
Same time at the beginning the negative ...
Despite carding the guitar was checked, I do not believe, because then would have noticed that some screws were very loose (and almost one).
On the vol.poti, tone poti and wegeschalter were the screws very loose. At the jack the screw was almost already down. And finally a very high string position. So, all screws tighten, other strings on it and the string position screwed down .... ran to the amp and once, and .....
I am very positive surprised what rauskommt. For a guitar under 100¤, one gets ne whole quantity wumms. In the distorted range, the R10 leaves no wishes open (despite the cheap humbucker). My Dean guitar, which is much more expensive, can not keep up with the R10 from the sound. In the clean area pushes the R10 but quite fast to the borders (although even there I am still satisfied).
The mechanics are also very stable. The new strings have been re-tuned, tuned, briefly tuned and despite violent strokes, the strings have no longer detuned. I play the R10 now about 1 week, every day, and did not even have to resent. Otherwise there is only to say; The paint is super, the bunds are nice smooth and have no grad.
Conclusion:
For 99¤ the R10 does not have to hide behind more expensive guitars.
But I do not know if the R10 is what is (abolute) beginner, since the is very copflastig.

UPDATE !!!

So, after 1 year of play on the "R10" (now RX 10) I can not report anything negative with the guitar. The stability of the voices is still present and also on the varnish, on the mechanics and neck is still everything as at the beginning also. But now I have the steg pu exchanged for a "fat ass" by BCRich, which I regret. Not the "fat ass" sounds bad, but the original humbucker is somehow from the sound somewhat better. I will definitely do it again. I'm definitely still 100% satisfied with the guitar.

**** UPDATE II ****
Now after scarcely 5 years I am still satisfied with the rx10.
Up to now, except for normal traces of use are no problems on the rx. Which still plays as on the first day. Has meanwhile only the original humbucker again, because the simply sounds better than the fat-ass. All in all ..... a super guitar for little money and very recommendable for people who are looking for good for the small money bag.

Harley Benton - fat sound for little money :)

Dr. Gnöbel, 11.10.2009
On the one hand, the R-10 impresses with its shape, which is strongly reminiscent of a Flying V or a Randy Roads model. The glossy surface attracts dust and fingerprints & CO almost magically. So this guitar is not necessarily recommended for a very sensitive person: D

Otherwise there is not much to complain about: the guitar is clean and the hardware does not feel "cheap" or simple. The buttons are all easy to reach and do not disturb when playing. The surface is scratch resistant and so far I have not noticed any scratches or quirks even after a long and intensive play. The Harley Benton is also after uncompromising vote from top to bottom and back continues to be voice-proof. Also, an impact with the neck does not lead to a change in the string tension, which can occur with other more expensive models.

All in all, it has a rich, rather heavy sound and lends itself to harder styles like metal or hard rock. However, you can easily play other songs with it. I have not had any problems with the sound until now, as the guitar is very well tuned.

However, I have only one point of criticism: It is almost impossible to play with this guitar sitting down and it is very frontlastig, which is due to the shape. A "pinching on one leg is also difficult, as the cable output at this point bothers." If you do not mind, the Harley Benton R-10 is a very good beginner guitar for an excellent price :)
