Very good for the money!

ayao28, 28.04.2017
Purchased this to experience the 7-string and fan fret, and this was the cheapest option available. As others have said, the slanted frets are subtle and I actually didn't have to adjust to it.

Overall, I was really impressed by the value/quality of this guitar. All my other electric guitars are in the $1K+ range, and though the HB feels like it's the cheapest one, it is by no means bad. The tuners work as the should, and although they're not smooth like the Gotoh 510 on my Lowden, they're not problematic like the Schallers on my US-made Tele.

Pros:

- Value for money
- 3.6kg + body contours = comfortable to play
- Acoustically resonant (compared to my Framus Diablo)
- The figured top (veneer) has the 3D effect, so it definitely isn't a photo-finish
- Hardware/electronics feel solid and work properly

Cons:

- There were imperfections on the guitar (e.g. buff marks, a chip at the end of the fretboard, scratch marks etc.), so if you expect a perfectly finished guitar you might be a little disappointed.
- The third fret is lower than all the other frets, so it buzzes there.
- I don't like the pickups. They are noisier than my other electrics (including my single-coil Sadowsky strat), and the tone sounds muddy and compressed in my opinion.

Cool, cheap guitar but not perfect.

22.03.2017
I hadn't high expectations from this guitar - it was my first Harley Benton, but overall i was pleasantly surprised. I bought it, because I wanted to try a multiscale guitar without paying at least 1000 Euro, but after a month i keep playing on it every day.

Pros:
- fretboard: all frets are perfect, no sharp endings.
- playability: very good access to higher frets, the neck is very comfortable, the guitar is not too heavy
- electronics: no buzz, everything just works. The pickups are surprisingly good, not ready for recording but for a jam or practice are more than adequate.

Cons:
- quality: nut, bridge and tuners are very cheap and it's difficult to keep a stable tuning. There are many small cuts at the side of the fretboard too.
-intonation: I had to put a shorter screw and to remove a spring in the saddle. The truss rod and action adjustments were not enough to get low B string properly intonated.
