NOT BAD AT ALL....!!!! EVEN VERY WELL ... !!!!

BluesRock, 16.09.2018
This is my 2nd Harley Benton, the first being the SC-Custom.
I had been very pleasantly surprised by this quality guitar.
I bought this 12 strings Harley Benton after listening to everything I could on the web, including this site.
The guitar is light.
The weight of the head and the keys is just leaning the guitar, but with a good little strap, it does it well.
The quality of manufacture is more than very honest ...
Although the keys are not very precise, they hold the agreement well.
The volume and tone knobs are ben progressive and do the job. No breath.
The case, semi hollow is very pretty and reminds of course the Rickenbacker which she is a copy more than very very honorable ...
The tailpiece and the bridge are good, but I would have preferred that the tailpiece be a true 12 string. There, it is the same location that is used to fix the pairs of ropes ... that's why I only put 4 out of 5 stars to build quality.
As for the handling, it's a little confusing at first because the handle is wider than a six-string, and you need to be more precise left hand. But it comes very quickly with a little perseverance.
The sound :
I said that I play progressive rock, basically, and so I have a multitude of effects that go well in this style, and my amps are a Fender Blues Junior and a Vox AC15C1.
both Artec pickups are of good quality and deliver a good sound and very clear.
Arpeggio is a treat.
In rhythmic sound clear too.
In its saturated, overdrive, it's quite interesting in both rhythmic and solo. I think that with a grain of saturation denser than with an overdrive it must be a little rough, to see ....
I was not very happy with the sound on my two electric guitar amps, so I pulled out an acoustic guitar amp (Hughes & Ketner model Montana), and there ..... MAGIC .... !!! The sound is downright awesome ... !!!
All this to say that this HB is a killer and if you hesitate again, do not delay, you never know .... if the production stopped ... !!!
For guitarists who think and say that Harley Benton is shit, well they are wrong.
There are many very good models at a low price, and it will not necessarily transform ...
My two HBs are the proof ...
Everything is said, it's up to you ... !!!

A decent guitar

Maikel Neid, 26.09.2018
I use the guitar from time to time for recordings in my small home studio. Here it is used, if you just need this typical 12-string sound.
I use them so far only undistorted. Sounds neat and sometimes replaces my western guitar in recent recordings.
I would describe the sound as "typically 60s". The shield could be better. If one does not touch the metal parts, a noticeable hum can be heard. It's just like that. "Typical 60s" - that's the way she looks and feels. That means very neat, but not like a fancy luxury product (compare to my Gibson LP Studio from the 90s? My modest idea of ??luxury product).
Processing is great; did not find any significant errors. The mechanics are stiff, and fumbling, but stable.
4.66 stars are mine, taking into account the price. More to be expected would be greedy and presumptuous.
