Can't buy better for the money
mropeel, 16.10.2020
I recently purchased this guitar, primarily because I've never had a guitar with filter tron pickups. I do have another 3 Harley Benton guitars however, a Fusion 1, a Fusion 2 and a DC Junior. Whilst my Fusions have been modified with GK3 synth pickups, primarily for LIVE use , this was a purchase specifically intended for use in the studio.

None of my HBs have had any fret issues. All totally level and tall enough to get a good grip of the strings. This guitar is no different. Probably the straightest neck I have seen on a 200€ guitar. Yes it's contour is very flat but that's good for low actions, string bending and I like that. The neck is 'fast' and feels quality and comfortable in the hand. The nut is also perfectly cut , as it was on my other HBs ..... and sound wise it has a nice smooth chime to it. Not overly bright but with more 'jangle' than a standard humbucker. Very useable.

It is however quite heavy even although it is chambered under the scratchplate and has an overly massive control cavity. I personally would have liked the body finish to match the headstock as the colours on the body aren't as vivid as the headstock. I understand that the headstock is a veneer and probably difficult to match up. I can live with it. It's close. I would have liked the option of a trem, but again I can live with a fixed bridge for the studio.

So, out of the box, the action was a little high but after a quick adjustment, it now plays like a dream. I absolutely love it. Even if you are not a big Telecaster style player, this is a great addition to your sound arsenal. When you realise that the closest alternative available from the big American guitar company is around 1600€ , this is a bargain.

First thing to note is one of the screws that keeps the tuner in place was loose, when I tried to tighten it - it broke on the spot so the tuning machine is holding up with prayers only now.

Another thing to note is the finish looks painted-on and not actual wood, which you may be tricked into believing by your eyes.

And the last con i can find is the weight, while still lighter than an LP, it's pretty heavy and most of the weight is in the body, keeping it from neckdiving for sure.

When it comes to good things. The fretboard seems legit, the frets aren't sticking out much, the bridge seems solid. The sound is great, especially for this price range.

Overall if you're looking for a cheap guitar (add price of changing tuners to something else cause they're awful) it's a great choice.

Very impressive
Huddertub, 02.11.2020
I've been reading reviews of HB guitars for a while and finally decided to push the button when I saw this new Blue Blast tele style guitar.
It arrived quickly, in good condition and needed very little tuning. The action was good out the box. The tuners feel a little stiff but hold the tuning well. The finish is as good as it looks on the web page, and the pickups have two very distinctive voices.
Its an excellent guitar for the price, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another HB having had so much fun with this one.
