Quality at a Great Price
Many Guitar Guy, 24.10.2018
Played for many years and wanted another comfortable fixed bridge instrument for live playing. Have been thinking Harley Benton for a while and decided to take the plunge!
Arrived from Thomann in 5 days. The nerves of ordering online soon dissipated on unboxing of the guitar.
The finish and look of the guitar are stunning! The flame cap is really good and the back of the guitar shows the wood grain. I can find no flaws in the finish and the back of the neck is silky smooth and the join to the body really nice.
The hardware looks and feels high quality, Grover machine heads work perfectly. Tone control works well not making the sound muddy. Roswell pickups sound fine..designed by Aliens so they must be OK. Not sure it would be worth the expense of upgrading them but some may want to do that at a later date.
The setup was fine out of the box. also the guitar is perfectly balanced..no neck diving here!

In the interest of fairness I will try to list the cons and I am being really picky!
Three of the strings were almost a semi tone out of tune.
The truss rod cover does not fit flush with the headstock.
A couple of the frets at the high end could maybe do with one rub with a nail file at the edge.
And as with any guitar that has been stored and shipped the neck needs some lemon oil.
I did say really picky because that is the only way I could find any issue with the instrument.
Highly recommended for anyone that wants a quality instrument that can compete easily with another with E or F on the headstock even a cheaper G for a third of the price.

Thanks to Thomann and whoever made this particular instrument.

I feel a collection coming on!!

I love this guitar!
ibxn, 16.08.2018
After having bought the Harley Benton SC-550 and loving the Les Paul vibe, I decided on going for the XT-22 - and WOW!
I can find nothing to complain about - the fretwork is perfect, the nut cut perfectly. the truss rod setup is as I like it, the action low, and overall it was totally playable (and in tune all the way from Germany to the US) right out of the box.
The binding is great, the red top striking, the balance is right on. The tuners do what tuners are supposed to do - they keep the guitar in tune!
Though it wasn't mentioned in the specs on the web page, the tone pot pulls up for a coil split, which is OK - not sure if I will use it or not. The tone control is very musical, rolling it off darkens the sound in a pleasing way. Turning down the volume pot keeps the treble alive, and doesn't muddy up the sound.
I really like the Roswell pickups and they are quite different from the higher output SC-550 Roswells.
This guitar may be my main instrument from now on (although I still love my 1996 PRS CE 24 that I've played for years.
I will be taking it out to a gig shortly and see how it holds up, but I have high hopes it will continue to impress!
