Love this guitar!
Jan @ Thomann, 26.02.2020
At first I bought this guitar because as a lefty I simply wanted to have a red guitar. But I am so pleased with it that now I'm actually using it for live performance.

I ordered on Saturday, delivery was on Tuesdaynoon, I did the setup in the afternoon and in the evening I used it for live performance! Great service Thomann!

I have both versions, one with roseacer fretboard and one with maple fretboard. The roseacer one feels a bit slimmer, but both feel very comfortable and smooth.

The Candy Apple finish of the body is simply stunning.

Action and playability were OK out of the box, but I anyway did a full setup and got a perfect action and playability.

Electronics work well, even though the tone pots have a very limited range.

The tuners have some tolerance, but keep the guitar pretty well in tune.

I have other guitars of a much higher price range, but this is the one I keep on playing the most.

Mods I did
I replaced the pickguard with an aged pearl one, which makes the guitar look more rich.
Shielding.
Setup: truss rod, saddle height and intonation.

pros
price, unbelievably low
aesthetics, really beautiful instrument, flawless finish
sounds really good through a zoom G1Xon
light weight (3,4kg)
easy playability, low action
general feeling, it feels very nice, you just don't want to put it down

cons
tuners are not so good
small range of tone pods
no shielding

All in all, I highly recommend this guitar.

A Strat for £65... I mean to say...
Tony P, 12.02.2020
I bought this at the same time as my TE-90 QM on an impulse, and thus avoided paying the £10 postage.
Firstly, I'm giving this guitar 5 stars purely based on the fact that it is unbelievable value for money. It is a beautiful looking guitar, with a lovely finish on the body. The frets are fairly smooth and the fret ends are neatly finished, although the wood on the neck surface is slightly rough, which doesn't affect general playing (like bar chords for example) but is noticeable when bending strings. One criticism: the volume pot isn't too bad, but the tone pots hardly have any affect at all.
HOWEVER...
This is a brand new, well made, and beautiful-looking Stratocaster copy for a handful of change, and would be a very worthwhile purchase as a single guitar or as addition to a collection. Personally I'm going to keep this long-term, so will be upgrading it over the coming weeks. But even unchanged it really is a lot of guitar for the money; when you think that an American Stratocaster would probably be about 20 times the price or more, it puts it into perspective.

A usable instrument
MikeSavage, 24.09.2020
I have a small child with an unhealthy interest in my guitars, so I figured a really cheap, robust guitar could come in handy! Well, left handed guitars don't come much cheaper than £69, so this fitted my requirements perfectly, as did the eye catching candy apple red finish.
This is my third Harley Benton instrument, so I already had some expectation of it being a great value piece of kit and it did not disappoint.
Out of the box it actually looked very nice and had zero manufacturing defects and a good set of frets, something I have come to accept as a 50/50 chance with much more prestigious brands especially left handed guitars for some reason.
I changed the nut, because I have fat fingers, and the string spacing was rather narrow, this is a personal thing and I am sure a great many younger/smaller handed players would appreciate it as it came.
I did a bit of fettling to clean up the edges of the cutouts on the back plate (not exactly a critical component), this was the only thing less than perfect, and fine tuned the setup.
The guitar doesn't have any quirks, the electrics work perfectly and it played just fine as it came.
It doesnt sound quite as good as a proper strat, but is halfway there for around 10% of the outlay, I think that sums it up well.
In summary, good build and quality control, nice looking and perfectly playable, if not exactly a tone monster. Ideal for home playing where hazards such as enthusiastic kids are present.
Thank you Thomann.

Mod base
matgav, 04.12.2020
Bought this as a mod base, it plays ok out of the box, action is a little high for my taste, mediocre tuners and plastic nut, those have to go first.

Pickups are definetly usable but i wouldt gig with them or anything. Fretwork was also fine and there were no cracks or dents in the finish.

It will turn into a nice guitar after a proper setup is done, also, get rid of the original strings, they are garbage.

Overall, you get what you pay for, if you want to buy this as your first guitar, have it setup by a pro and you will be just fine.

WEEK LATER EDIT.
Never, I mean NEVER use the tremolo, unless you want to tune every 10 seconds, just block it or never use it. I will ut locking tuners and a TUSQ XL and well see how it goes.
