Baffling quality for the fraction of the cost

09.12.2016
I bought this guitar almost on a whim: saw a couple of very favorable reviews, etc, needed a strat for recording purposes, finally got this, was very low on funds. I have been playing guitar for over 10 years as a band member, as a session player, etc, had my fair share of expensive stuff, at this time just happened to need a strat relatively quickly, and only had a tele and a les paul, which didn't fit the job. Was I surprised.. First of all, the guitar was in tune right out the box (albeit the slightly sharp high E string). The finish looks great, way better than on the photos. The guitar itself is pretty light, just about right for a strat. The neck is, well, not too slim, but not too fat as well, feels like a MIM Fender strat neck, almost identical. Freatboard finish is spectacular, no blemishes, high polish and all. Now the good stuff. I was worried about bad frets/warped neck/electronics/tremolo. None of these things are bad in any way. All it needs is a proper set up (And what I mean by that is , obviously everyone likes a certain set up for a guitar, so it can't be perfect for everyone, I like a floating bridge, a two spring setup, angled claw and so on), after that, it plays like a dream. The pickpus are nice, jangly, just as a strat should be. You'd have to be insane to complain about this guitar, would recommend to anyone looking for a decent strat. Only thing that it needs is a setup according to personal specifications, after that, it's a spectacular piece of equipment. (P.S - When set up right, ya can dive bomb it for a half an hour and it doesn't go out of tune, I was quite pleasantly surprised).

UPDATE:
Okay, it has SOME issues, of which ALL are fixable without much hassle. The issues that mine has are - some frets aren't fully set into the fretboard, which makes them stick out just that much, AND makes some strings at two or three positions buzz. While this is a very low maintenance job, it's still a little annoying, as everything else works perfectly (well, change the string trees, unless You never bend. then again, every strat with non-roller string trees has this problem.) and this seems as such a silly thing to miss. I've carefully set the frets fully into the neck, and now it plays great, but just a word of warning - when buying this, I mean, even with these issues, it's still a complete steal! Sounds great, the tremolo works fine, the finish is fantastic, the neck is comfortable and smooth, even the electronics are absolutely fine.

Harley Benton st62 mn sb

Deftones39, 30.11.2017
The guitar came to my house today and I was a bit worried because the outer box was in bad shape. I thought my guitar would be damaged inside, but to my amazement there wasn't so much as a scratch on it.

The guitar finish is amazing, the lacquer neck looks nice and feels comfortable in the hand. Tuned guitar and plays nicely right out of the box. String action is lower than Squier guitars I've purchased and no fret buzz.

Overall I'm impressed with the guitar for the price paid. My only gripe is with the Thomann website and the tracking of packages for customers overseas. I'm in the United States and the site never updated to let me know when the guitar was in the U.S. I just emailed Thomann today to inquire again as to the whereabouts of my purchase and it showed up at my door about an hour later!

Total time from order to delivery to Michigan in the United States was 13 days in case any others from the U.S. are wondering about delivery times. I would recommend Harley Benton/Thomann to others interested in a very nice guitar for not a lot of money.
