What a good way to go!

18.07.2016
Hello

So I have the guitar for only a few days, and I am a beginner from beginner, it is my first electric guitar, and my first guitar, so I will try to be objective, and I insist, Is my BEGINNING point of view.

If like me you are a beginner, and I think that is the case, because otherwise I doubt very much that you would be reading this evaluation, which concerns a product "low-end", I will tell you only one Thing: go ahead!

You will surely read about the different forums, if you've done some research, a lot of bad reviews about Harley Benton, and especially on this kind of entry-level product. I think that when we begin we must not take too much account of it.

The guitar is super nice, it looks like a real SG, it is quite rewarding to start the guitar;).

The finishes are really not bad, the guitar is clean overall, the Cherry color is super nice.

Then ok, the body is poplar and not mahogany centenary dried with beech wood under Napoleon first, the pickups are dual no-name coils and not Humbuckers 1959 2000Hz with reverse impedance on the frequency of international competition, the mechanics are Not as precise as those of a real Gibson ... But I will nevertheless tell you a trick: when you plug it on an amp and you scratch the strings, ben there is a real electric guitar sound that And just with that (according to my electronic tuner anyway) and again, to start in the world of guitar, it's nickel.

Frankly what to ask for 98¤? It is well worth its price, and is perfect for who like me wants to go without spending too much money initially.

I always wanted to learn the electric guitar but I got there late (32 years), so if I drop in a few months at least it will not cost me too much. But good saw that in a few days I can already do two-three stuff with, for now the motivation is there and I do not lose an opportunity to take it out of its cover ... And I already start to Ogling Les Paul Studio at 650¤ ... But that's for later, when I would become a Guitar Hero.

For info I use it also on PS4 and PC with Rocksmith 2014, this works perfectly well (with the cable Real Tone USB).

Thoman logistics service exemplary for the delivery of this order.

Thank you for reading me and again, if like me you start, and if you do not want to put too expensive, go without hesitation!

You Get What You Pay For

Stefan3, 15.04.2017
Background information: I bought this guitar as an absolute beginner for the first few weeks. I had before then to buy on the basis of a first-class guitar.

Conclusion: The guitar has fulfilled its purpose. I even played with the idea of ??upgrading them and re-using them. Because of the quality deficit described below, however, I see it.

First impression: For the price? very positive. The guitar is absolutely solid. The frets are neatly processed. The components are high-quality except for the tuner mechanics. This has quite a game, but with some practice it fulfills its purpose. Small deficiency: The cover on the back of the guitar body is not flush.

Second impression: The string position was extremely high. In combination with 10 strings, this is quite "sporty" for a beginner who does not yet have a cornea on his fingers. The octave purity was not adjusted. It was also not possible to adjust them because the stroke in the Tun-O-Matic bridge was not sufficient for the E- and G-string. After I reduced the string to about 2 mm, the E-string could be adjusted, but the rider still strikes the G string.

Third impression: Recently I noticed another mistake. The guitar neck pushes the plastic frame of the neck pickup slightly. Either the recess is in the wrong place, or (which is more likely) the guitar neck is too far behind. The latter would explain the difficulties with the octave purity.

Things that disturb me at the guitar, but they have nothing to do with the quality:
The humbuckers can not be split. The guitar neck is thickly lacquered and becomes very sticky and slippery when you sweat a little in your fingers.
