Nice looking-nice sounding guitar
damondimento78, 19.01.2021
I'm not a guitar technician or a great musician, so bear that in mind.

Looks: It looks great. It's not really turquoise, more of an ocean green, a very sparkly green. I don't see any blue tint in the colour, but that's neither here nor there. Neck looks great, and overall the guitar looks fantastic.

Packing: Inner and outer box were damaged, guitar had shredded the inner polystyrene. Suggest padding more carefully around the guitar box to stop movement. Luckily the guitar wasn't damaged.

Fretwork: they could do with a polish. Also the ends are not sharp, but they can definitely be felt as you slide along the neck. A little disappointed with that, but it's not a big deal.

Sound: I had a Harley Benton SC 450 Plus vintage series which has the same humbuckers, so I knew what to expect. They're good enough for a home musician. I don't have good enough ears or musical knowledge to describe the nuances.

Tuning: great, the locking tuners work really well.
.The volume knob works fine, the tone knob is extremely loose. I will need to play the guitar for a day or two to see if that causes a problem.

Overall. It's a great guitar for the money. But, there is so much variability in QC with Harley Benton guitars, some models are perfect, others always need more QC. This one is towards the better end, but why is a 125 euro HB ST-62 almost perfect whilst a 300 euro guitar has a few niggles?

That being said, any issues seem to be minor. I would say it's worth the money and prob a little more than the money. I wanted the roasted maple neck model but couldn't justify another 100 euros for a nicer neck.

Update: after an hour of playing I noticed that the tone knob post is slightly bent meaning the knob moves up and down as you turn it. Also I notice that my guitar leads which fit my other HB guitars just fine, are a very tight fit for this guitar, so much so that they require force to insert or remove and feel like they might break the jack. Not great.

Update: after two days I decided to return it for a replacement. At my request, Thomann kindly had the replacement checked by their technicians and although it delayed it by an additional week, the replacement is as near to perfect as you could ask from a 300 euro guitar. So, overall I'm very happy.

Great quality for a great price!
António Couto, 18.01.2021
I wanted a tele style guitar, so I found that Harley Benton was doing several afordable models, but the price always made me kinda sceptic about the actual value of these instruments, but after acquiring this one, I can say that I don't understand how they do it, at least on this specific one: locking tunners, stainless steel medium jumbo frets, hardtail Hipshot bridge, amazingly comfortable unfinished neck, and this beautiful ocean turquoise colored top. I preferred the fixed bridge version, because I rarely use a trem bar when playing, and I like the simplicity.

When it arrived, it needed some intonation, especially after downtuning half a step, like I normally play, but was very easy and straightforward to setup, with the Included truss rod adjusting bar (to use next to the neck pickup), and alan key for the bridge saddles.

The guitar is very comfortable and easy to play, feels good and looks good. There are very minor finishing issues on the neck that don't bother me at all, but might bother some one else, like the fretboard not being perfectly parallel with the body top on the neck joint, and a very small chip imperfection on one side of the fretboard, which is not noticeable on the touch, but these don't ultimately weigh on the overal experience you get with this instrument, the fret edges are very smooth and well finished, and there are no aparent finishing problems on the body itself.

If there's really anything that is a lesser part which lowers a star on my overall rating, it's the pickups. They're not bad, but they're not great either, at least comparing with Seymour Duncans on another guitar I have (JB on the bridge, Jazz on the neck), but I guess that's a taste thing, I'm very much a SD guy, so in comparison these seem less capable, but some might like it depending on the usage. They have the split coil functionality, which adds a great layer of versatility, but they don't "open" as much as some SDs on higher strings, and don't have the same clarity and have weaker output. Ultimately, I'll upgrade the pickups, and expect to make of it a great instrument to gig with.

Great instument for the money
Andrey K, 13.04.2020
The guitar looks and feels great. I stumbled upon this guitar on youtube and immediately fell in love. It's what I was looking for: tele shaped guitar with alternative design decisions (mahogany body, simple 6 saddle fixed bridge, and the last but not the least - humbuckers). Gotta love stailess steel frets, Graptech TUSQ XL nut, ebony fingerboard and locking tuners.
I love the Tele I have but I wanted something more versatile and lighter (the ash body on my tele is as heavy as cast iron). I initially wanted a black one but they quickly went of stock and I ordered a sparkled green one while they lasted.
The quality of manufacturing is excellent, I haven't found any flaws or imperfections, so no complains whatsoever on that side. The color in reality is very eye pleasing and not too "poppy", which I was kind of apprehensive of. Wood "binding" looks neat too.
The neck with natural satin finish is very pleasant to touch and move hand around, the grip is very comfortable.
The hardware looks and feels solid. The volume knob makes some sound when turning like it's rubbing something but I can live with that.
I slightly more prefer regular size frets on my Tele to jumbo frets here but it's a matter of getting used to the instrument.
The guitar came well intonated with action a bit higher than I am used to but the adjustment took just a few minutes.
Speaking about tone, I'd say that I expected slightly thicker and darker tone from the Rosewell humbuckers after all youtube reviews I saw but not a big issue, it can be compensated later in the sound chain for the most part.
I didn't closely inspected the electronics, they work fine, no humming, buzzing or knobs screeching, so why bother.
All in all, it's my daily "go to" instrument now (I've got 4 guitars including this one).
The only cons I noticed by now is that it has a tendency to a very slight neck dive. The other minor nuisance is the positioning of the 3 way pickup selector. It's too close to the strings and I often bump into it with my hand. But these I can live with easily given all the joy it is to play. Anyways, I do it mostly at home now.
So, it's my first Harley Benton and most likely not the last one :).
BTW, the delivery was quite fast (I was afraid that there would be issues given the situation with the pandemic now). The only thing that I was looking for in the box but it was missing was the sticker "Rescue my guitars first". No big deal.
Keep good work up Thomann!
Thanks!

Good budget guitar that becomes great with some small upgrades
ChristiaanH, 10.03.2021
Initially I was eyeballing a few more expensive telecasters but when I saw this I honestly fell in love with the look of it. I've never had a Harley Benton product before but the reviews seemed pretty decent so I took the gamble.

I also loved that it has humbuckers (with a tone-knob you can pull out to make it single coil).

Straight out of the box the guitar was in pretty decent shape though the box itself was damaged a bit (I'm sure this was not Thomann's fault).

After playing for a bit I decided to just use the strings that came with it for a while as honestly I'm not proficient enough to really know whether I SHOULD change them.
The fret-board feels smooth, straight, and the action was perfect for me so there were no adjustments needed.

After a few months the pickup selector start producing a lot of noise and I could no longer reliably select the neck pickup. I knew this sort of problem may arise with a budget guitar but I was(and am) still in love with it so instead of returning it I decided to replace the faulty part.
I replaced the faulty pickup switch with the Göldo US003 CRL 3-Way Switch which was incredibly easy to do.
The new pickup switch feels a LOT better, you can tell the difference in quality there. There's little to no slack on the switch, it just feels a lot more solid.

TL;DR
I would definitely recommend this guitar if you're on a tighter budget or honestly, just love the look of it like I did. Beware that some issues may come up and honestly, I would recommend investing the extra 30-something euros to replace the 3-way switch right away.
