It's HUGE!!!

jimdandy, 19.10.2013
Going from the head down on the guitar.....

Tuners work great. Held tune perfectly whilst I was jazzing out!

Truss rod cover I thought looked a little cheesy, but easy to replace for a standard looking one.

Neck has a nice feel to it. Fretwork is excellent and didn't need anything to rectify. No sharp edges, and set up well.

Body is a Mahogany laminate and finished in satin. I'm not a fan of satin, but each to their own. I'm sure it will polish to gloss if try hard! ;-)

The pickup is a mini humbucker with adjustable poles to even out the sound. Handy.

How does it sound? Well, plugged in it has a nice acoustic tone, and wind up the gain on a good tube amp and it screams in a dirty wonderful way. Overdriven woody tones..

It's a great guitar to fill a void for the archtop in your collection.

NOTE: If you've got an archtop with pickups on the top (humbuckers etc), this is a totally different beast. It's loud, it projects, and more importantly, it has a full tone, I can hear bass, everything. With the thick poly double humbucking guitars, you loose all depth.

Messy, sounded dull, unplayable.

03.11.2016
I bought one of these, tried to like it but kept it for about a month and then sold it on.

I wanted an acoustic-like guitar, something I could mic up for recordings, but with electric strings and electric pickup, so jazz guitar it was.

What I liked about it was the satin finish, the guitar looked nice (from a distance) and felt nice to touch. I liked the thin body depth and jumbo shape too...that was about all I liked.

What I didn't like was the fact it arrived boxed, from the factory, with a dent on the headstock. The pickup sounded dull, the fitting around the pickup was a mess. Odd pieces of wood were glued in around the neck join, it stuck out like a sore thumb, and the metal sides of the pickup were chipped. The worst part was the playability, the frets were un-level. This guitar would have required a lot of extra work if I wanted to be able to actually play it with ease. It was easier just to sell it in the end. This has somewhat put me off from buying a Harley Benton guitar ever again.

Thomann says "all our own house-brand guitars are quality controlled to meet our customers? expectations". Sorry but I'm not convinced I'm afraid. This might have been a 'cheap' guitar, I didn't expect it to be perfect, but I certainly expected better than this. Certainly not as good as other guitars I've bought for less.
