Wow! Just Wow!

02.12.2016
Harley Benton have done it again! This is my 4th Harley Benton and I've been blown away once again. I purchased this guitar for use in live playing with a band and for my YouTube cover channel. I also had never actually played a flying V before and was always very interested in playing one. At a price like this, what did I have to lose? :)

When the guitar arrived, I was once again baffled by the quality of the guitar based on the price! Everything from the workmanship to the action on the strings was absolutely perfect. All hardware is of exceptional quality and electronics are also perfect! After give the guitar a physical once over and being overly satisfied with the quality, it was time to plug this bad boy in.

Upon plugging the guitar straight into my amp, I was instantly blown away by the quality of the sound. The output is very nice and clarity is amazing. The Wilkinson pickups are fairly bright but have a lot of power behind them also. The guitar is actually an amazing "All Rounder" and extremely diverse whether you are playing ballads/punk/metal! Everything sounds great through those vintage style pickups.

Physically the guitar plays like butter and is incredibly sturdy and well built. It holds very comfortably and rivals my more expensive guitars all round! I also love the no frills knobs - 2 volume and 1 tone. Suits my needs perfectly! Definitely an instant favorite! If you are considering purchasing this guitar, consider no more, just go for it. You won't regret it!

Unmatched for the price

Koosp, 08.10.2018
Harley Benton has been getting more and more traction lately and I decided to believe the hype and buy one for myself. My previous guitar was a cheap knockoff strat so of course the difference in quality is astronomical.

PROS:
+Nice finish, looks and feels good
+Holds tune pretty well
+Balanced well for both sitting and standing use
+Good strap placement, both ends of the strap end up not too far from each other just like in other less extreme guitars

CONS:
-The factory setup was quite bad, couldn't manage to get rid of fret buzz without raising the action way too high
-Some frets are of uneven height
-The V shaped metal plate at the bottom was a little scratched and chipped in one place (purely cosmetic)

NEUTRALS/MATTER OF TASTE:
*The pickups sound bassy and can get a bit muddy
*The guitar feels weighty but whether it's too heavy or not varies from person to person
*Two volumes and one tone knob, I'd much rather have two tones knobs

In conclusion, there is nothing too wrong with the guitar by design but the one you get could have some things you'd have to fix before getting the smoothest playing experience.

Overall, I'm happy with the purchase and would recommend Harley Benton guitars to others looking for absolute bang for their buck.
