Amazing guitar for a low price!

CheeseFudge, 01.07.2018
I've always wanted to try out a Harley Benton. I've heard great, great stuff about these, often cheaper, guitars. What I also craved was a alpine white Les Paul. I saw a band play in 2010 (Veara at the Eastpak Antidote Tour) and the singer/guitarist had a white Les Paul and I instantly fell in love. When I saw this SC-Custom I just had to order it.

All in all: The playability is through-the-roof. Active pickups, locking tuners and straplocks out of the box. The thing stays in tune for hours on-end. It's got a great solid bridge and a relatively thin neck. This thing absolutely screams. This guitar's clean tone is alright but it certainly shines when you start playing with distortion. So... Be sure to crank up the gain and fire up some sick Metallica riffs!

What I don't like are the volume knobs. It's pretty much either on or off. There's no real middle ground. The input jack came relatively loose (which is a easy fix, mind you. but still!) after using it for less than a month. There's some blemishes in the finish here 'n there but this guitar definitely rivals it's expensive brethren and then some.

All in all I'd pick this over any (higher) end Epiphone any day. I own a Gibson SG and several Fenders but this thing quickly became one of my favorites in a very, very short time and for the fraction of the prices that I paid for my other guitars.

Even if you're experienced or just starting out - I can't recommend this guitar enough if you're into the harder styles of rock.
