Good price-quality ratio. It has defects, but I recommend it

Rocking_Stoned, 05.11.2018
I've being playing 8 string guitar for a decade. I bought this guitar to compose and practice since I have no access to my usual guitar at the moment. This is my first fan-fret guitar, and I can tell you they will not get on the way. You will not even notice them while playing.

Good for practicing or gigs.
Not suited for precise recordings because of tunning problems (but it sound good)

Pros:
Good price
Good sound.
It looks cool (audience will not notice the finishing defects)

Cons:
Frets not leveled (Buzzing - playability)
Difficulties tunning (nut makes strings jump from one tune to another)
Bridge not optimally positioned (if you want to tune lower you will never have perfect tuning)

_____________In depth__________
Body:
Small defects in the painting job. Mine has some small droplets and a noticeable repair (on the wood or the painting, not sure) in one of the sides of the guitar (it?s hidden by the strap though)
Body smooth to the touch, very pleasant.I think they aim to a finish that you cannot notice at first sight, or that the audience do not notice.

Electronics:
Potentiometers and switch feel cheap but they work just fine.
The pickups also look cheap, but they sound good.
?
Neck:
Dry. Probably the result of the treatment of the wood (is maple treated to look like rosewood, since there is scarcity of rosewood). Just add some oil
The posterior part is smooth and it has a good shape, similar to an Ibanez RG.

THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS OF THIS GUITAR: THE FRETS, THE NUT AND THE BRIDGE
If you know how should a good guitar should feel, you know this is not it.
The height of the strings is too high and they mask a major problem.
If you adjust them, you will notice that the frets are not at the same level.
Whatever you do to adjust the strings or the rod will not fix this problem
If you want a great playability you should level the frets.

Nut:
The nut is another big problem, the strings do not fit nicely in the nut,
so you will have a a good amount of problems tuning since the strings get stucked there and the tuning will ?jump?
The nut is also not perfectly placed in the nek, and this affects a bit the position of the strings in respect to the borders of the nek.

Bridge:
Bridge parts of the 3 lowest strings need be lower, specially if you tune lower than F the 8th string
THOMAN GUYS, HERE IS A CHEAP FIX: just screw those bridge parts and make the string holes further away from the nek.

Bottom-line: It's a good and affordable guitar, just buy it!

Multiscale machine? Harley Benton is your choice

Peter from Holland, 03.06.2018
After extensive research I decided to order this beast. I haven't tried that many guitars. However I came across some bad, and some really well-playable and beautiful guitars, and this Harley Benton is a surprise in every way!

Pros:

Thomann guarantee plan
Very affordable
Really well-built
Awesome looks
Nice sounding pickups
Great fingerboard - perfectly level fretwork
Plays like a dream (after some setup)
Graphite nut and nice build quality bridges (different from the picture!)

Cons:

Nut slots high (you will have to file them to proper height or have it done)
Frets not perfectly smooth (you have to polish them yourself)
Hardware allows for more versatile switching, coil split possible but not as such switched
Kind of heavy (4 Kgs), less suited for minions

Unpacking was a joy. Superfast delivery - ordered wednesday, delivered friday by UPS. The feel of the guitar is that of quality and the looks are jaw-dropping. Some say the low string needs to be replaced by 0.80. There is no need if you play close to the bridge though. After an easy setup you will own a top quality reliable instrument for life! 100% recommended.
