(4.5 rounded up) Fantastic Guitar
@chrismedinamusic, 05.05.2020
I'm mainly a hollow-body/humbucker jazz guy but I recently landed a gig that required an s-type guitar that was specifically requested from the MD of the band. I had one already and needed a backup. This was that guitar.

Build:
In terms of build quality I was pleasantly surprised by how well this guitar felt. I can't say it can compare to my more expensive pleked guitars but I won't deny it, this thing can hold up against any of my Indonesian made guitars! No sharp fret ends, leveled frets and came set up well (slightly high for my taste). Fit and Finish is good.

Sound:
These Roswell pickups are better than any pickups in any other guitars by any other manufacturers at this price point; big or small. I was certain I would need to upgrade them at some point but I'm honestly happy enough to keep 'em. They aren't noise cancelling or anything to write home about but if you're seeking that s-type sound, this'll do it. If you're interested in hearing the guitar, I've played it on my Instagram account. @chrismedinamusic

All in all, this guitar is well worth the price tag and I can recommend it!

Great guitar at a great price!
Blandrys, 25.10.2019
My third Harley Benton guitar and, as with all the others, I'm ultimately extremely happy with it. It's a drop dead gorgeous guitar in my opinion, kinda like a golden milkshake type vibe. Aesthetically there is little to complain about. The fret board has one small dark 2cm streak in what is otherwise a uniformly light brown color but, while taking away from "perfection", it doesn't really bother me at all. The frets themselves were adequately polished but there was one single fret that had a slightly pointy end-edge. a tiny bit of polishing with grit paper took care of it feel wise but it left a slight discoloration where I had polished. No biggie.

As is not unusual with HB guitars, the strings mounted on the instrument when shipped were a bit rusty, but I had ordered spares. Intonation was perfect out-of-the-box but the action overall was not properly adjusted, resulting in a lot of rustling sounds especially on the thinner strings. Simply raising all individual strings at the base (using the tool that came with the guitar) to the max was still not enough so I ended up having to play with the truss rod adjustment as well, again with a hexagonal spanner that came shipped with the guitar. This was the first time ever that I performed this kind of adjustment myself (trussrod/action) and while I think a real luthier could do a better job, I at least I got it to the point where the action is acceptable to me. It would have been nice if this had been done before shipping it out and this issue is the primary reason why I only give four stars on quality and not five.

At first I thought there must be something wrong with the output of the electronics in the guitar, because the amp (bought with the guitar) was producing a terrible high pitched whine nearly all the time. Eventually I realized that the noise came from the refrigerator located in the same room, and unplugging this instantly eliminated the annoying whine.

So yea, all in all, very happy, would buy again and I play it every day! Now time to start saving up for a Les Paul copy :)

Unbelievable
All Things Guitar, 19.06.2020
I bought this guitar expecting to have to do a lot of work to it. My intention was buy it, review it on my youtube channel, do the work required, sell it, then start the process again with another guitar. However, I won't be selling it. It's absolutely phenomenal. Fret-job was as good as my US Strat, nut was cut perfectly, and apart from some minor personal set up work I didn't have to do a thing to it. Absolutely unbelievable quality for such a small amount of money. Go check it out at All Things Guitar if you don't believe me...I've done an unboxing a review, then just playing it and having fun...I genuinely can't put this down, and I have a house full of expensive instruments here. Just a brilliant guitar regardless of price point.
PS - I have no affiliation with Thomann or anyone who works there, as you will see from my channel reviews.

Only high-end Squiers and standard Fenders can compete with this guitar
Forhekset, 08.06.2019
I am writing this short review after almost six months of having this guitar so I think I know know what are its pros and cons. The truth is that you cannot buy a better stratocaster for that price (we are talking about new guitars, not used ones). I've had almost all Squier guitars in my hands and, really, the only Squier that could be said to have been equal to this HB would be the Classic Vibe - which is now 3 times more expensive. But straight to the point
- The neck is probably the best part of that guitar. It is rather thin than thick, yet the fretboard is quite wide which makes it overall very comfortable to play. Not to mention, that the neck comes with a great glossy finish and a real-bone nut.
- Roswell pickups are also great in terms of sound. This is just as close to that bright, stratty sound as you can get. Really no need to replace them, they sound great, especially some dirty clean/crunch presets.
- Very good tremolo bridge. The block is much thicker than in other strat guitars. The tuners are OK. The guitar stands in tune most of the time and you can do some tricks with the whammy bar but you have to be careful. It's good overall but a divebomb is to much for the tuners to handle - but it was to be expected.
- The strings were quite high above the frets when I unboxed the guitar so bear in mind that before you start playing - the hardware needs to be set up.
Overall it is a great Stratocaster guitar. I am very pleased with it.
