An affordable deluxe guitar

The Fusion-T HH HT Roasted FNT is an impressive guitar from Harley Benton that gives guitarists deluxe features – including twin humbuckers with a coil split feature, stainless steel frets, and locking machine heads – with an attractive price tag. This feature set is combined with an ergonomic T-style body made from sapele mahogany, a flamed maple veneer top, and a roasted Canadian flamed maple neck. The fingerboard, which has a radius of 305 mm, is also made from roasted maple to give the guitar a crisp, snappy-sounding tone. Elegant looks, immense flexibility, and tried-and-trusted hardware and electronics all come together here to make an instrument that will suit a wide range of musical styles.

Versatility and aesthetics

With its sapele mahogany body, decorative flamed maple veneer top, and attractive natural wood colour in a high-gloss finish, the Fusion-T HH HT Roasted FNT is a true eye-catcher. The roasted Canadian flamed maple neck, which is secured to the body with a four-bolt neck joint, features a modern C profile and a matt finish, enabling fast and comfortable playing. The roasted maple fingerboard is another feature that makes the Fusion-T HH HT Roasted FNT stand out from the crowd, and the guitar also boasts 22 wear-resistant stainless-steel frets, a Graph Tech nut, and an HPS-6 Custom hardtail bridge and locking machine heads from WSC. The two Roswell AlNiCo-5 humbuckers are governed by a master volume and a master tone control together with a three-way blade switch, and the tone pot additionally features a push-pull function to allow the pickups to be split for single-coil sounds.

For players who love a great price-performance ratio

The Fusion-T HH HT Roasted FNT is the perfect choice for those seeking luxurious features and great looks in the most affordable package possible. Bargain-hunters can look forward here to features that are normally only found on more expensive instruments, such as locking machine heads, a Graph Tech nut for enhanced tuning stability, and stainless-steel frets to prevent fret wear spoiling the smooth playing feel of the elegant roasted maple fingerboard. What is more, the body’s ergonomic contouring and comparatively light weight make for excellent playing comfort. Players can also choose between full-on humbucker tone or more subtle single-coil sounds, so this guitar is a true all-rounder that is great as an affordable backup instrument. However, it can still hold its own against significantly more expensive competitors, which makes it interesting not only for ambitious beginners but for experienced guitarists as well.

The whole set on one guitar?

The Fusion-T HH HT Roasted FNT means you have a lot less to worry about on stage: Its comfortable body shape and matt-finished neck mean you can play it for hours without fatigue, while the locking machine heads, high-quality nut, and especially the hardtail bridge will make sure it stays in tune. Outstanding sonic versatility is provided by the twin humbuckers, both of which can be coil-tapped, drastically reducing the number guitar changes needed during the gig. This of course makes the Fusion-T HH HT Roasted FNT a great backup guitar that can stand in for multiple others. These all-rounder qualities are not only helpful on stage, however: The guitar’s adaptability to multiple musical genres will also be invaluable in the recording studio.

To begin with, I'm from Russia.
I had to ask the tomann to exchange one instance of Fusion-T for another, since the first had a number of drawbacks - the most important of which was a white pickup in the neck position.
Yesterday I picked up another HB F-T, having paid customs duty again.
Now about the guitar - a very controversial instrument.

Pros:
1. The neck is made very well. That part of the working department is well done.
A good maple, perfectly rolled frets, excellent spikes and string springs.

2. Good quality pickups. Universal frequency response and sound readability.

3. Nice, simple bridge. Holding the strings through the deck provides a decent sustain.

4. Screening of the tone block, accurate organization of wiring.

Cons (maybe specifically my copy, but on the previous guitar they were similar):
1. Humbuckers stand crooked towards the strings, they are littered. This is due to the fact that there are no springs under the screws. The sensor simply lies on pieces of paralon.

2. Very cheap three-position switch and potentiometers. The volume potentiometer rustles chronically while rotating, without clinging to the deck. The tone potentiometer scratches the deck, both potentiometers need to be changed.

3. The nut of the neck anchor does not stand strictly perpendicular to the frets (at an angle) during rotation by “cutting” the wood. But it seems to work. It seems that there may be problems with the vulture in the future because of this.
Self-tapping screws are inaccurately screwed into the heel of the neck.

Total:
1. The best thing about this guitar is its neck. It is difficult to find an instrument of a similar price category with a similar in quality and tactile feel to the fingerboard.

2. The sound of the guitar is pullable and versatile.

I would like return the guitar, but I don’t think that I can get Tomann’s confessions again. The employees of the export department are great - they make contacts and try to help.

The main complaint is that quality control should be better and more thorough. (especially when sending to CIS countries :-) _)

One of the best models out there
b8ck8tt 06.01.2022
I'm a bass player first, but I enjoy playing guitar sometimes. This tele became my main, and remains for over two years now, even though I have much more expensive instruments. It just feels great in my hands, and when I want to play, I'm grabbing it 9 times out of 10. Total score - 5/5.

Features-wise it offers more then a regular tele or a two humbucker guitar, since it has coil-split. I wasn't expecting anything else out of it, so 5/5.

Sound is the weakest spot of the instrument. Stock Roswells are ok, but they sound worse than some other humbuckers I've tried. Swapping them is always an option, and something I'm planning to do eventually. However, they are usable, even in coil split modes. Overall it's 4/5

My particular model was from the first run, so it has issues that later models don't. First of all, the holes in the body are not properly aligned with the bridge. It's still usable, but annoying. Also the switch is horizontal, so when it's in the bridge position, it hits the volume knob. On later models they made it diagonal. I'd give it 5/5 for the new models, but mine is 4/5.

In my opinion this guitar is perfect for any newbie. It's very comfortable to play, the neck feels amazing, you have steel frets, locking tuners, stable hardtail bridge, decent humbuckers with a split mode. I honestly cannot think of a better guitar for these money.

What to say...

Firstly the features are wicked, so big plus. Secondly there's ample scope to mod.

Cons - as stock it needs a few mods to make it a serious pro axe. Problems I found were 1 terrible pickups just did not sit well with any amp or pedal I don't know if my ones were a bit shoddy but I replaced them in 2 weeks.
2, mine needed a serious fret polish n wood oiling.
3 grain was dull on body veneer with little figuring but fretboard flame is nice shame about neck.

So what can be done to improve this? Well a few purchases from Fender will help. Namely a 500k tonesaver attached to volume a TBX in tone position (why do they not put tbx in every guitar is beyond me????) as the split coil on the Roswell was beyond a joke with insufficient tone.

I contemplated adding a kill switch (there's plenty of room in the control cavity) but not desired yet.

As for pick ups if you can afford Seymour Duncan the buy a perpetual Burn or 59/Custom with Alnico Pro II, if you can afford DiMarzio PAF pro and 36th Anniversary PAF if you can't afford those go to Tonerider and get Alnico 4 bridge and Alnico 2 neck. I've experienced all of these and experienced various pups in this guitar and others. The only combo that didn't work as well as I expected was dimarzio Air classics (sound great in my other guitars).

Currently running it with Irongear blues engine bridge and tonerider Birmingham in the neck.. sounds ok blues engine sounded the boss in my Kramer Baretta.

Over all get what you want make a few mods and turn this good axe into a great guitar that will see you from bedroom to stage

Punches Way Above It's Weight
wide eyes 16.10.2021
The headline says it all. It's simply hard to argue against the impressive value of stainless steel frets, a roasted maple neck, locking tuner, and excellent quality control. And the fit and finish is great, regardless of price point. Played excellent right out of the box, even though it travelled halfway across the world to get to me. I expected the pickups to be a weak point, but they are surprisingly versatile. I personally prefer AlNiCo over ceramic, but I would be lying if I said these ceramics were bad. The electronics could benefit from an upgrade, as the switch and pots feel a bit cheap, but they're certainly serviceable and on par for the price point.
