Excellent guitar for the price

TomGoss, 24.06.2018
This is the second CST-24T I have bought. The first was a blue one but I sold it after a while because I wasn't really happy with the pickups and didn't want to spend much more upgrading a ¤222 guitar.
Learned recently that they changed the pickups to Roswells and read good reviews so took a chance on another one.
Definitely a score. Beautiful guitar and the pickups are lovely. No urge to 'fix' anything....well, not much anyway. These pickups to my ear are very similar to the Duncan Jazz/JB set....no bad thing. The coilsplit sound is typically thin and weedy....half a humbucker is NOT a good singlecoil...so I wired in a resistor (about 4Kohm) in the grounding wire and now you get one and a half coils, sort of, when split which sounds better. This is easy and cheap and should be standard practice when they wire up a guitar in the factory.
The guitar arrived amazingly well setup for a budget guitar. Frets were nice and smooth. I've had new Gibson's that were worse. It was even intonated properly! But as I'm fussy and do guitar setups a lot anyway I gave it another gentle fret polish and worked on the nut and vibrato. Lemon oiled the fretboard. It wouldn't stay in tune very well out of the box but after smoothing and lubing fretslots and adjusting screws and stuff the vibrato works great and stays in tune really well. Plays great now.
The workmanship and finish is REALLY
good. My girlfriend even wants to have the guitar hanging in the sitting room so she can look at it! Love the deep red and black finish.

The only negative I have with this guitar....and other Harley Bentons I've bought...is the weight. Way too heavy. Not a huge issue with me this time as I own other lighter guitars to use onstage and will just use this one sitting down, but I would've preferred it to be less heavy.
Harley Benton should sort this issue out and get a supply of less dense timber for their products.
But other than that I'm very pleased with the guitar and would recommend it.

Top Marks Thomann...

23.03.2016
had a few guitars from Thomann and have always found the service second to none.
this time I opted for the new CST-24T in Black Cherry Flame..... must say i'm not disapointed... the finish is first rate, and out of the box almost playable. So i simply tuned it up and played for an hour. Wonderful sustain, great tone.
I did need to adjust the truss rod, but that was all.
I LOVE IT
Another little nice touch .... Thomann included a personalised photo of the guitar.... at first i thought it simply a stock photo, but on closer inspection it was clearly MY guitar.... nice touch......
