Amazing quality and sound for the price.

Miguel-Rock, 08.08.2018
To get some context, I own a Gibson LP and a Ibanez RG, and I have played for ten years. I have experience with live shows, and gigs, I am not a pro, but I can say I am not only a bedroom musician. So, I moved to a different city, and I wanted a practice guitar since I could not bring mines. I choosed this mostly for the look (and the price), but since I got it I am quite amazed. It's really well constructed, and plays really nice and loud (because of the body type probably, since it my first of this type). Its feels more like the Gibson LP than the Ibanez, but it has 24 frets.
The greatest surprise was when I plugged into a sound card, and record some tones, I was really blown away. So I overdub some some tracks that I previously recorded with the Gibson and the Ibanez, and it really can compete with them. I had quite a variety of tones (it has coil split Wilkinson picks). By far, those do not sound like a "starter" pickups.
I have not played live with it, but after what I have used it, I think it can probably withstand a gig without further problems. It's quite stable for the tuning.

Pros
- Quality : Well constructed , nice finished.
- Price : For the price, amazing quality and features.
- Sound: Very versatile and quite variety of tones.
- The look: One of the most beautiful guitars I have owned.


Cons: (actually not so cons, but I would say details to consider)

- I had to slightly adjust the trust rod (neck) after the first three weeks, but nothing to serious just a buzz on the first string. Since, then I have not had any problems with it, nor intonation. (I think is not a Con, since my Ibanez need the neck adjustments every couple of months).
- It's heavy. I thought since it a hollow-body, it would be ligther than the Gibson LP, but it feels just like that. (Also not a con, just a tip to be prepared).
- The neck is fat/bigger. It's definitely in the zone of a fat LP neck, and even a little bigger. I would say almost like a slim electro-acustic. Anyways, it is really comfortable, but don't expect a Ibanez type ultra-slim neck.

I have no idea how Harley Benton do it, but they've done it again. This is my 3rd HB in 1.5 years and I am consistantly amazed each time.
The quality of this guitar is amazing to say the least. When it showed up, I was prepping to do a lot of tweaks/adjustments etc but I didn't have to do a single thing with it. I could play it straight out of the box.
The action and intonation was perfectly set up. The guitar was even still in tune after being shipped from Germany to Ireland!! :) Amazing!!
As for the pickups, they are insanely good for a guitar of this price. Lovely bright tone off the top but also highly versatile. If you wish to muddy up your tone a bit, it takes a slight bit of tone knob adjusting and hey presto! Also, sustains for days.
This is without a doubt the most comfortable of all my guitars and is a lot better than most of my higher end models. I bought this guitar when it was priced at ¤222 and that was an insane price. It is now ¤199!! What are you waiting for?? Get one, you wont regret it! Thanks again Thomann! :)
