Disclaimer: I may be a bit of a perfectionist and very demanding.

I heard all the rave about the Harley Bentons and decided to buy this one.

So, here we go:

- Sound was merely meh.

- It seems like absolutely all parts are completely unoriginal, so at best you can swap knobs.

- It hums, which was not unexpected, as most guitars do (especially single coils).

- Obviously, pickguard has unoriginal screw holes and other things. You can't even change pickup covers to Fender originals, as the Wilkinsons are much too small. Speaking of pickups, one of them just completely broke apart at one of the screws, which was 100% not my doing. The pickup had a chip on the middle as well, so it seems it was damaged beforehand as well. It looks to me like the plastic plate the pickup was mounted on was malproduced, as it has lines (air bubbles?) in it. Also, they didn't even bother to spend 5 seconds of fine sanding the edges on the pickguard cut edge.

- Screws here and there are uneven. Tremolo tilts 1 or 2 millimeter lower on one side (pictures of all Harley Benton do not have this). So not surgical precision when drilling and mounting during production.

- Neck was nice, but even that was hardly perfect. No sharp frets or anything, but fret job still didn't look nice. A small chip is missing in the fretboard near the nut at top, and there is glue on one side of the nut, while there is missing glue on the other side, leaving a tiny, visible gap. Tuners seem like they can't hold tune, but that may just be the fresh strings playing in.

- Sure, it is cheap. Just know that in this case, as usual, you get what you pay for. It may be better quality than regulars at this price, but it is not perfect and not completely professional and top quality.

Stupid me (I'm always so impatient), I took off the labels and plastic right away, so I probably can't return it. Oh well...

Conclusion: I wish I never bought it.

HOWEVER, if I had the chance to view the product beforehand in a store (and find one that is in proper mint condition), I would not regret it like now.
In other words, if I could go over it in the store, even if just to rule out the cosmetic things like the neck flaws, offset screws, and slightly out of whack assembly here and there, I would probably buy it.
The guitar body and neck - if in mint condition, that is - would be a nice basis for a project.

Having looked at all the Harley Benton strats here at Thomann I opted for this model because it had Wilkinson Alnico vintage ST-style singlecoil pickups and a Wilkinson tremolo.

Having paid only £106 for the guitar i am so glad i bought it. It only took 3 days to arrive here in the UK and it was well packaged. It came with a guitar lead and allen keys and tremolo arm. As this model was only released in Feb 2015, it had no review's or ratings. I presume i must have been the first person to have purchased this model.

There were no flaws on the guitar at all and the finish was a perfect natural (hi-gloss) very impressed! The protective sticky plastic was a bit tricky to remove from around the pickguard and pickup's but having removed the volume and 2 tone nobs made things easier. It already had a nice low action straight out of the box and i am pleased to say i had no fret buzz whatsoever. I did need to tune it myself but it was pretty well tuned out of the box.

I have two Les Paul guitar's already and bought this Harley Benton Strat ONLY to play "The Shadows" music so i wanted a good reliable tremolo which seem's to work very well indeed and appear's to stay in tune so far.

The Wilkinson pickup's have a nice warm tone and don't sound cheap and nasty.
For the price this guitar is well worth the money! I could not be happier!
Good quality Guitar! I hope this review is of some help for anyone else thinking of buying this model and i am astonished that i have guitar of this quality for £106
I have bought £400 guitars and the HB ST-70 is up there with them and just as good when comparing sound and quality.

Thankyou Thomann. I hope to buy from you again.
