Amazing Value

StevieSandstone, 22.12.2017
Tuners, nut, bridge and electrics are cheap garbage. The frets are very rough. However the body and neck are perfect for an inexpensive project guitar.
I got this guitar to do a fret level and polish and upgrade all the hardware, it's perfect for this purpose. I'm extremely happy with the result.
Got a wilkinson trem, axetec locking tuners and a tusc nut, tuning stability, action and intonation are now perfect and it stays in tune even after extreme trem use.
The pickups were a surprise, I was planning to upgrade them but after trying them out, I haven't changed them yet. A real bonus that I wasn't expecting.

What I love about the guitar:
Neck is a nice shape, not super thin like an Ibanez, it's just a bit chunkier like a Schecter
Frets were pretty level, didn't have much work there, but they needed a lot of polishing
Reverse headstock is a great feature, it looks great but even better it gives more tension on the low strings for chugging and less tension on the high strings for bending

My only gripe:
I wish the heal joint was a bit more modern, it doesn't bother me much, but ferrules instead of a back plate and a slight taper would have made this guitar absolutely perfect.

Conclusion:
I paid very little money for this guitar and with a bit of work and a few choice upgrades was able to make it into a very, very good guitar. I have a few £1000 + Schecters and Ibanez guitars and this guitar after the work I did, is easily as good as them. Thankyou Harley Benton and Thomann for providing a great quality guitar for a joke price

Black is Beautiful.

Ronnie J., 19.08.2018
After waiting 10 weeks for it to arrive (out of stock) it was a pleasant surprise to finally have it in my hand. But, wait is this the same guitar I ordered ? A quick check confirmed there had been a change made. The neck was now completely Satin Black, and not natural as shown in the photographs, apart from that everything else seemed as it should be. The whole guitar is finished in a very cool Satin black and feels very comfortable. The two humbucker pickups have textured black covers, and sound SWEET. There is a single volume and tone controls which work perfectly well. It came fitted 10 gauge strings, and mini Grover tuners, which maintain the tuning even after a vigorous bit of whamming. The fretboard is Treated Maple, but looks more like Ebony, and matches the Satin finish perfectly. My only reservation before purchasing this guitar was The Reverse Headstock, and after using it now for a few days, I have to say I can't see the point of reversing it. Tuning becomes a bit awkward and it does nothing to enhance the instrument. Overall this a wonderful guitar that looks great and plays effortlessly, with great tone. This a good buy.
