Good copy of the real thing

axewound, 06.05.2016
So after a nice toy to play with wanting a little bit of a chred machine i decided to go with this as i wouldnt be using it that much compared to the other guitars i have.

I am very impressed the pickups are very good indeed, i wouldnt say they are high output but they do scream (what i mean is volume isnt overly loud but the sound is such) and give the high output sound. They also clean up very well with a little roll off of the volume, and if you want a bit of grit leave the volume up and a bit of clean tone and they break up well.

The finish is immaculate as i have come to expect with the Harley bentons i have now had.

The part i was most worried about was the trem, it does seem to do its job and do its job well, im not into huge dive bombs etc but using it for "mild trem use" it returns to tune each time and i've had no problems at all as yet

The only con i have found is that one of the pots is a little scratchy

Not at the top as other harley benton

21.06.2016
PACKING: well done and functional

PAINTING: flawless and pretty much perfect, the dull and very smooth handle

MECHANICAL: very good, they do their job properly

POTENTIOMETERS: fluid and silent; the tone a bit 'too aggressive and if brought to the stop almost unusable. Great volume

SWITCH: Silent

HANDLE: perfectly straight and well set; fast and fairly flat. The keyboard gives the feeling of being too dry and dry.

PICKUP: the sore point of the guitar, just output and dynamic poor. Very cheap and ill-suited to the kind pointed to the instrument

BRIDGE: the floyd does its job well and after some settling little problem working properly. The tremolo is too loose and wobbles in its groove. The locking nut at times, especially with the low E string, fails and you have to retune.

SOUND: acceptable, but little sustain, a little 'sour and definitely not exciting.

In conclusion I would say that the figure is obviously a very good tool, very nice and well finished which is worth more than what it costs (you are always talking of only 149 euro !!) and that despite some flaws it does its job. However compared to other harley benton a little more expensive fixed bridge does not compare, and much more the idea of ??being a "cinesata". Probably the main flaw are the less powerful pickups that united to just sustain return an unfortunately poor sound.
