TE-52 left hand is the guitar you want

17.11.2016
Ordered sat , arrived Wednesday , as always thomann are a delight to deal with, tracking is great and email letting you know it's arriving that day is very handy. I bought this guitar as a back up , I use a USA standard for gigging and I need another tele in case something goes wrong , well it's gone very right .
First though what's wrong , I don't know how they do it but with all 3. Guitars I've had from thomann the strings are all tarnished so expect to change them straight away , I'm a stickler for new strings so I change every month or every third gig so you might be ok with a bit of a clean with some fast fret.
The nut is always too high , this is common on every guitar , i put a capo on the first fret , have a play , if there's no buzz then the height of the string above the 2nd fret is the optimum height , remove the nut and sand the bottom till it's the right height and put back, if you take too much away use a strip of wet and dry sandpaper to shim , the higher the grade the thinner the paper so you can get it perfect.
The frets are tarnished , polish out with some 00 wire wool and while your at it have a run down the back of the neck with the wire wool as well.
I had a set of compensated brass saddles which I added as well )7.99 eBay) and then I did the string height and intonation.
These are all common faults with guitars 5 times the price of this one so it's nit picking to the extreme m now onto the good things about this guitar.
EVERYTHING ......seriously it looks great, the body is a lot lighter in hue than the pics on the site but that's the only thing light about it , it's a heavy body and you need that for sustain , the neck is lovely ,it's the first HB i haven't had to fret level or anything , it feels like a much more expensive guitar and it looks like a much more expensive guitar and here's the kicker it sounds like a much more expensive guitar , I seriously think these wilkinson pickups are better sounding than my American standard , that's fitted with a SD humbucker in the neck slot and I was planning on putting the old fender one in this but no chance , it sounds exactly like a tele should , the tone and vol pots work perfectly for once with great taper . I was playing this till 2am last night and when I stopped I just looked at it for 10 mins in shock , I'm a pro musician with lots of guitars at the high end so I was doing comparisons using a looper to go tone against tone and this knocked it out of the park.
Forget about getting that classic vibe or that Mexican , go for this and spend the money you save on an valve amp .
I was going to relic this , reshape the headstock and put a fender sticker on it but no way , I'm using this live next week and I want everyone to know this is a Harley Benton guitar that cost £120.
Buy this , go for the brass saddles as well as it improves the sound and intonation and youll have a guitar better than a triple the price classic vibe with an hours work.

Brilliant Tele for the money

Barking Billy, 30.04.2017
Brillant guitar for the money. It needed a little work on the neck, nut far too high, frets needed a good polish and the bridge height and intonation needed some adjustment, but the work was well worth it. The finish is spot on and the Wilkinson pickups give a true tele sound.
Its the second Harley Benton guitar Ive bought and Im really pleased with both.
Thoroughly recommend this brand for quality and tone.
