My HB XT-22

Atax, 17.11.2017
So far, HB was always known for inferior sound and processing. But on YouTube you stumble more and more on enthusiastic users of HB guitars. Hhhmmm, I think you can order one and try it out. After some deliberation, I ordered the XT-22 in Black Cherry Flame, which is a burgundy red in Natura. Together with the frosted hardware looks very, very chic. Incidentally, the model is a Hamer XT from the nineties. At the processing there is nothing to set, the string position is good, the intonation / Bundreinheit as well. Only the A string I had to correct minimal. This was thanks to the Grover tuners butter soft from the hand. The guitar arrived well cooled here with me, no wonder in the outside temperatures and had to first be brought to room temperature. Voted afterwards. Now she was examined: there is really nothing, but nothing at all. At least a too thick lacquer blob on the fretboard / corpus transition and two small minimal red gradients. But you really have to search with the magnifying glass. With the tone control, the humbucker can be switched to single coil, which results in many well-to-use tones in the game mode. The PU's are medium output, just as I expected. Tip to Thomann: offers these Roswell PU's as Replacement parts, they are well worth it.
The body seems to consist of 2 parts, the neck of three: head plate, neck and angeschlesetes blocks, where the neck goes into the body. In terms of sound, I've compared them to my other, sometimes considerably more expensive guitars (Gibson, Fender, Ibanez), but the HB XT-22 can easily keep up with that. Good sustain, good sound, good pu's, good playability, neatly worked frets, flawlessly notched saddle, impeccable fingerboard with clean inserted block inlays. There's nothing left, there's nothing to hang on, nothing is rattling.
No matter what you play, Santana, Gary Moore, classic hard rock, jazz, fusion or blues. This HB XT-22 always makes a good figure and that at the measly price. My recommendation to all the other guitarists: Buy one, Christmas is just around the corner, you can do nothing wrong. A first-class guitar at a crazy price. No wonder so many foreigners buy HB guitars from Thomann. Just visit YouTube. To Thomann: Both thumbs up from me, you have great instruments under HB at the start.

Almost as expected ...

13.12.2016
Who has bought one or more guitars from Harley Benton in the last two years knows that there is a lot of guitar for a little money. This is also the case with this beauty.
Insofar: A high on the Thomann quality control!

In contrast to the just read evaluation, I have to say that the color in the picture exactly corresponds to the color of the supplied guitar (at least is mine with mine).

The processing is incredibly good for the requested price. The same applies to playability. The sound is very clear and in my opinion very suitable for a differentiated solos. An all-rounder is the good piece but not.

If you want to have a broad and / or brutal sound for the rhythm guitar, the Harley Benton SC-550 Paradise Amberflame should be more appropriate. For the sample I leave the Duesenberg at home (because too expensive) and take the SC-550 with. That can be just about anything. If I make one at home on Santana, I like to access the xt-22;)

If it is about the optics and the small sound restriction is not interested, it should necessarily access.

I am excited.
