For the money, it's another Harley Benton winner.

24.02.2017
I have 2 acoustics from HB, and was suitably impressed to give this a go, it's a bit different to anything else I have in an electric guitar.

I'll keep it short and sweet, everything works, after a bit of work, pots and input jack where all fairly loose and needed tightening, the nut was lopsided, I tapped it out and realigned it and gave the nut slots a little file as they where quite rough, but no major problems. The strings where really badly rusted, I had ordered a set of 11s anyway as I like thicker strings in short scale guitars. Adjusted everything to my liking and have to say that this little gem plays very well, some great sounds from the pups, stratty, but different enough to have a unique voice, blues/rock/indie, no problem at all. Feels and sounds great. I gave 3*s for quality because the frets are not well finished, not terrible, but not great and I can't just do that myself in 10 minutes like the other stuff, but at under £100, this is a great little guitar, if I'd spent £250, I'd still say I'd be happy, it sounds and feels, (except for the fret edges), that good.

Pleasantly Suprised- Perfect for Modding

L1amZ, 12.04.2017
I brought this guitar because I really like the colour of it, how cheap it was and that it was very similar to the Fender Competition Mustang that Kurt Cobain had.

The guitar came safe and sound in great packaging and there were no broken necks or dodgy parts.

The strings on it were terrible and rusty but I expected that and was going to change them to thicker gauge strings anyway. The guitar was set up ok but the action was a little too high for my liking.

The tuners and bridge are perfectly fine and it stays in tune fine now it has been set up.

The pickups it came with aren't that great in MY opinion, however, I planned to mod this guitar and put a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge- which i have done at the time of writing this. I could see the stock pickups still being very useful for genres of music with no distortion.

So far the guitar has been set up by a luthier with 11 gauge strings and the JB has been put in the bridge. This has turned the Mustang into a beast and an absolute pleasure to play.

In conclusion,
I spent 150$ (AUD) on this and 120$ (AUD) on modding it and it plays and sounds (to me and people I've showed) very well.

P.S. the neck is very small but nice and comfortable.
