Why pay more?

20.01.2016
Firstly lets get the usual out of the way. Thomann delivery. The guitar arrived in the UK within 2 days of ordering, it then sat at DHL for 3 days (Weekend) before delivery. Six days total, who can fault that? Arrived in perfect condition.

Right. Stratocasters, I've always played Gibson copies, big fan of the Epiphone SG, my 2012 Junior was one of my favourites. Was.

Strat-wise I've had mainly superstrat types, Washburn, Jackson etc but kind of steered clear of the pure copies. In 2006 I bought a Fender Highway One, I hated it and sold it on after a week. It sounded flat and felt just wrong.

Feeling the urge to play again after a too long lay off I looked at reviews for ideas. Harley Benton kept coming up, I've played Squire's, so-so, and thought if I disliked the Highway how could a no mark be any good? How wrong was I. This is a honest comment, the HB is better than the Fender. I may have had a bad one but that's the cold hard truth. £85 Vs £675 (I think).

Finish wise, it's perfect. A thick coating but it resonates well. The colour is different to that shown, my monitor shows a beige tint, its a creamy vintage white.
Neck, fantastically playable and chunky. The maple looks aged slightly and the finish is fast and slippery like a hot buttered slug.
Tuners were on my change list. No need. They are smooth enough and hold tune all night.
Pickups were also down for binning if the body was worth keeping. No need. From Blues through Punk to Grunge. They are good. I played through a Peavey Transtube last night and it was in overdrive. I sat with a massive grin on my face. This is an £85 guitar!
Pots are smooth, do what they should, and the 5 way switch is solid & clicks into position well.

I cant comment on Tremolo durability as I keep it locked, never use them, and set up needed a quarter turn to bring it in but who can moan at that. The frets are level but could maybe do with a stone over the edges, I'm talking very very minor here.

The only downside for me is that now I have another 3 HBs in mind but worry that they cannot be as good as this.

Excellent budget ST style guitar

15.12.2016
I bought this as a backup guitar and to fill the single coil role for home recording projects. I didn't want to spend alot of money and had read reviews / heard sound clips and decided to take the plunge.

First impressions were good, the guitar looks great, plays nicely and was well set up (lowish action and intonation was set). Electronics are fine, all pickups work and sound how you'd expect them to in
each position and switch and pots all work as they should.

The Wilkinson pickups are great (though a little noisy with gain / high volume) and sound like the guitar they are emulating in each position:
The neck pickup is great for cleans and lightly overdriven tones, the middle / bridge position gives
a great quacky clean tone and the bridge is very bright and great for leads and overdriven / distorted rhythm playing.

The bridge is good and is adjustable for string height (action) and length (intonation) and has 3 tremolo springs which hold it firmly in place (couldn't use the tremolo bar) You could loosen the springs (or remove one of the springs) to use this though not sure how well it'd hold tuning.

The neck doesn't sit flush with the body (their is a small gap between them) this doesn't affect playability of the instrument and is purely a cosmetic flaw.

The fretboard is a separate piece of wood to the neck (though this isn't too noticable as the neck has a gloss finish) again just a cosmetic issue. On close inspection the fretboard markers also seem slightly blurry (almost like a low resolution image)

Tuners work and hold tuning though aren't particularly smooth and can be quite difficult to turn.

Nut is well cut and intonation at the first fret is fine and didn't notice any tuning issues from strings bends Though I did put some graphite (pencil lead) on the nut slots when I first changed the strings.

The truss rod doesn't seem to do anything, I changed string gauge and didn't notice any difference when trying to make an adjustment (ended up doing a whole turn anti clockwise to add relief and measured no change with the feeler gauge)

Overall for the price this was a great purchase with only minor issues and cosmetic flaws going against it and will suit a beginner as well as someone looking for a budget backup or just looking to try an ST style guitar.
