An okayish guitar
Humanoidtyphoon47, 13.02.2019
My first guitar from thomann and my first harley benton guitar

When the guitar arrived and i unboxed it, i noticed bits and chunks of the nut all over the guitar and i noticed the nut was like kinda rushed when someone tries to filed it. There are some minor inperfection here and there but what could you expect from this price point.

Pro
1.Looks good
2.Good high gain sounding pup
3.Neck feels nice, no sharp edges
4.Its quite light and thin (for me)


Cons
1.The fretbar is a little too rough (bending feels very rough)
2.The fretboard is little dirty and dry (probably normal)
3. Very minor paint issue on both tailpiece and the bridge
4.The tailpiece have a little metal sticking out that is pointy and sharp
5.The pickup are...too distorted
6.The nut was filed down in rushed manner
7. It got neck dive...

Despite the cons of this guitar i still recommend it TO PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW TO FIX SOME OF THESE CONS definitely not a beginner guitar IMO, personally some of these cons can be easily fix anyway.

I made a wise choice!
19.01.2017
I am amazed, to be honest; this is 150 euros and somehow a super dense, mahogany metal guitar with active pickups.
I can only speak for my own experience, but the guitar I received was practically perfect - low action, beautiful finish, just great to play straight from the box!
The guitar gods were smiling on me I guess, I am only using a Blackstar Fly 3 Mini amp, so I cannot really say how well the pickups perform at high volume, but that said, the Fly 3 can kick out a decent sound, and I had no noise issues from the active pickups (which have been reported by some tests last year - (check out on Youtube).
That is impressing me, no noise, clear sound, and a heavy sound on the fat strings. Again, its my perfect metal guitar for 150 euros... There has to be a catch, right?!
Bridge is really nice, nobs are smooth, toggle switch is decent and seems like it will last. No cheap nasty parts, Tuners are all good. I cant find a fault at all.
Its a fantastic guitar and for the price, jesus....
If you like heavy, solid, black, metal guitars, no reason on earth I couldn't recommend this.

Better than many brand name mid-range models.
Mordred, 20.10.2019
Honestly, I was not expecting much for the price I paid, but was pleasantly surprised at the build quality! I swapped the noisy HB active pups out to an EMG 81/85 set, Set up the bridge, and viola! Shred city! I have played the guitar at three Pale Horse Prophesy shows and it performed better than I could have hoped! Thanks Thomann for the fast shipping, and the great new toy!
