A sound laboratory
Alex the strummer, 25.09.2020
To be true, it is my first electric instrument and I have only positive impressions about it. As I used to play acoustic guitar it was important for me to try as much as possible versatile instrument to understand if electric is mine, and I made the right decision when chose the Harley Benton ST-20HSS SB Standard Series. After several months, of course, I want some more and sometimes look for more advanced instrument, but then I take this guitar in my hands and understand that I didn't try this or this... It is amazing, and by this I remembered my teenages when I got my first classic guitar :)

To criticize I should only mention (1) some negligible cosmetic roughnesses (but they are almost invisible), (2) a bit angled neck (the fat E string sometimes goes out from neck on higher frets) and (3) some instability in the tone controls work in the neck-mid position (in the beginning sometimes they did nothing in this position, sometimes worked correctly, but today its ok, what was the reason I don't know). Netherless, all these critic comments are nothing at the background of overall price/quality relation.

Great instrument and price
Cossack-HD, 18.03.2021
This is a very good electric guitar for a beginner.

The strings are close to the fret board and don't require tedious height readjustment (at least it was good enough for me). I did some simple tuning and it was all good.

The frets are all even in height, well finished and the width is good.

The instrument isn't "noisy" even when used in front of a PC (where it could be affected by RF signals and induction), but a higher quality shielded cable is very recommended.

The tremolo and the tonality switch along with the knobs are good to have.

I'd say it needs slightly better packaging as the guitar head's pointy end managed to crush plastic foam and almost got out of the box during shipping, but the guitar was shipped over long distance, so guess it's OK.

Great guitar for that money
Stanislav G, 13.04.2021
the only thing that bugged me is the quality of plastic part. While the wood looks and feels very good, the quality of plastic knobs is terrible. And i know that plastic knobs dont affect the playing, but c'mon, really? HB made a decent guitar and all of that nice impression was spoiled by plastic knobs. Make the guitar 2 eur more expensive, but provide it with decent furniture

Harley Benton ST-20HSS
Boy Herozy, 17.08.2015
Sound:
The stock pickups are good enough to play any music genres. The humbuckers sounded pretty well with hi-gain amps. Even with clean effects it sounded great. The other two single pickups are also good although not excellent to my taste.

Finish:
Overall I can say that the finish on this guitar is pretty well-built. The one i received had an excellent finishing. The frets are nicely placed. Fretboard is amazing. Its just the tuners that can go tiny bit of out tuning when played hard. The sunburst colour makes it like an expensive guitar. I have friends coming over and look at this guitar first time thinking it cost above 200Euros because of how it looks.

Conclusion:
My final verdict for this guitar is that anyone should get one of these Harley Benton products. I played guitar for 20 years and really satisfied with it. For gigs, this guitar can be a saviour if you get what i mean.
