Great entry level 7 string
drntheripper, 03.05.2018
I'll try and keep this simple.

I am not the greatest player in the world, I've struggled my entire playing life to progress and to "get good" which has only been made worse due to a fairly serious hand injury a few years ago. Along the way I've become partial to the "Ibanez Prestige" guitars the neck profile works well with my busted up hands and the build quality keeps my inner gear nerd happy.

When I first started looking for a 7 string I could not find anything local that I liked for under $1000 CAD which was far more then I wanted to spend on something I was not sure that I would like. After reading some reviews I decided to Order this Harley Benton unit.

I had mixed feeling when I opened up the box..

The good:
*Good quality hardware
*The electronics are nice quality and work well.
*Almost perfect set up
*Fantastic finish
*great neck profile
*Really light weight, this may be a double edged sword (see negatives)

The bad:
*Mine came with three good sized dents on the body despite there being no damage to the packaging. i suspect the body wood is soft
*The pickups are muddy down low and lack definition

Overall I am super happy with my guitar, I would say it is as good as the competitions guitars at twice the price.

Very Good for the price
Pablo56, 17.02.2018
First venture into 7 string territory and didn't want to spend much. Here's my opinion of the R-457MN WH.

Pickups - not great but passable, and they are either on or off, a small turn of the the volume control and its on full blast, but for the price cant complain and this is the type of guitar that needs to be full on all the time.
Neck - unfinished, Ibanezesque, the fret ends are sharp and need to be sanded/filed down and polished, the neck is relatively straight, an hours work would get a good setup. Its not so wide that its uncomfortable for a 6 string player and access up to 24th fret ok.
Tuners - not very accurate, but my strings are staying in tune ok.
Bridge : had to lower the saddles to bring the string height down. standard block no real issues.
The overall guitar is very light and sits well, the neck is not heavy so it doesn't tip over when standing up.
For the price, this is a very good guitar, with some work it can be better. I'd say it's comparable with the Ibanez GIO but at half the price, this is very good value for money.
