SERIOUSLY GOOD AND LOOKS TO MATCH !

24.02.2017
Almost speechless when I opened the box - but maybe a "wow" could just about be heard. What a looker - front, back sides and top - just an all-round really nice guitar. Had to keep going back to the website to check the price again - £178 delivered UK - amazing ! Really nice quality and finish.

After a few "plings" I just hung it on the wall and looked at it for a couple of days ( not all the time ) before checking set up. Never really had to do much to make it sing - fret levels were ideal and no sticky out bits to moan about. After the couple of days rest the relief was 0.010 so just left it at that. Fretboard was not especially dry after transit, but it did get a tiny drop of lemon oil just to cheer it up a bit. Some minor tuning and intonation tweaks and it was good to go. Tuners feel pretty good actually and do their job well.

Lovely and light to handle and quite compact which for me makes it a lot easier to play as am relatively new to guitar
( convert from percussion ) and a home player only. Very forgiving I would say and also maybe a "nicer" more symmetrical shape than the RB600 type on which it is loosely based - being a Tribute Series Guitar. I believe the pickups are Artec Classic Mini Humbuckers and have to say I really do like what they can provide - quite versatile.

A quick tip for anyone interested in the sound of a 12-String without the expense of buying or " inconvenience" of trying to master playing one - problem solved. The Digitech Mosaic 12 -String Emulator Pedal ( Thomann have them ) works a treat with the Harley Benton RB-600CS and sounds fantastic ( ref. Hotel California intro and many others )

I really have to give this guitar 5 stars for everything for two reasons mainly - Quality of construction, appearance, playability and sound. Secondly value for money - to get something this good for such a price is impressive indeed and difficult to imagine anything better. Highly recommended - if you are a fan of R-Types you will love this. If you cannot play at all - just buy one and hang it on the wall to admire. It's cheaper than a framed limited edition print !

A Guitar With 60's Cool - Something You Don't Find Everyday!

Tworedsquirrels, 17.02.2015
First Impressions
This beautiful looking Mahogany guitar is very light so it is easy to carry around with you and play gigs. The Mahogany wood is shown off to it best advantage by the cherry sunburst finish. My guitar has a flaw in the wood, not the finish but since it gives it personality and I am happy with that.

Influences
Guitar based on Rickenbacker designs are nickname "Rickenfakers". This guitar is not based on any one model but rather combines style elements from different models to create something new. The body shape is similar to the Rickie 600 series.

Set Up
Most of the strings were off the bridges, I didn't notice this at first because of the covered Rickie style bridge cover. The guitar has a low action. There is some fret buzz on the 5th and 4th strings at the first fret. I need to adjust the intonation on my guitar but I don't have a small enough spanner.

The control plate is covered with a protective plastic covering. unfortunately the plastic covering the lower plate cannot be completely removed without unscrewing the top plate. When I unscrewed the plate, expecting to separate them, I found that they were stuck together, curious.

Sound
This guitar wants you to play arpeggios in a lead and rhythm style that sorts certain type of songs. I have such a song I wrote called "Long Long Road" from my album "Mistress Of the Moon". The Rb600 fits this style of song perfectly and this will be my live guitar for this song from now on.

Techniques
Apply a little pressure to the floating tailpiece for some vibrato. It is also possible to create "behind the nut bends".
