First things first, I am not in anyway a "good" guitar player. I'm a bass player for close to 10 years so this is my first time picking up one this creatures.

I went straight to a 7 string mainly for the fact that I write alot of stuff on my 5 string bass in drop A, so obviously I need a guitar that good manage that without busting the bank. And oh boy this didn't disappointment!

The guitar arrived within 2 days (Germany to UK) well package and perfectly set up straight from the box! No need to do any changes what so ever, which is nice for obvious reasons.

Sound wise. I use this guitar through BIAS on my macbook or ipad and I can get any tone I want with it, from heavy djent through to funk and then to smooth blues without a problem.

It plays like a dream no over hanging frets no un-even frets no nothing which is amazing.

I highly recommend this guitar anyone no what their experience is, its cheap, its sounds great what more do you people need to know? Haha.

Excellent value-for-money

I bought this guitar to get a feel for seven-string guitars and my first impression has been very positive. Considering the price I didn't expect too much but I don't like to waste my money on garbage either so I did have certain expectations on assembly and tuning stability. Now that the guitar has arrived I am happy to discover that it exceeds my expectations. Intonation and tuning stability is good. The neck-joint is flawless and string height is very good. The neck was comfortable and overall it feels like an easy-to-play instrument. There were som minor cosmetic imperfections on the paint job. The pickups aren't excellent but work well. I consider this guitar excellent value-for-money.

Astonishing quality for the price

I've bought a fair few Harley Benton products now and regret buying none of them. They've all been of very high quality and in this case you couldn't even build this for the price they're asking. Crazy !

I had to lower the action a TINY bit, about 1mm, but that's personal preference. It arrived totally playable and with no fret buzz or setup problems. Intonation is perfect, all the hardware functions well with no crackles or glitches and the knobs and toggle switch are smooth yet precise.

Finish on the guitar is really nice, it's simplistic but for a "black" guitar there's nothing wrong with it. Nice shine to it and easy to keep clean. Tuning heads keep their tune and don't slip out.

Pickups sound good both distorted and clean, with a nice deep tone for rhythm and a more biting sound for the treble. No crackles when switching and the delineation between the sound is clear.

If you're looking to get into playing a 7 string guitar then I would recommend this wholeheartedly. The neck may not quite be as "fast" as an Ibanez (it's a little deeper) BUT that's a really, really minor quibble considering that getting a playable 7 String Gem would cost you about £600 at LEAST. I was playing this for a long time "out the box" before I changed the action a little and it was fine, it's just a matter of preference as to your playing style but the tool is provided to change the action should you desire and the bridge being how it is means it's easy to setup.

Also, worthy of note, this guitar has a fixed bridge which makes it really helpful for beginners as the traditional tuning/intonation problems that can befall people unfamiliar with floating/tremelo setups are not part of the equation here. I purposefully bought this mainly because of this. Even though I've played guitar for 20+ years I haven't had a Floyd Rose or equivalent for a long time as I just find them irksome.

I'm now considering buying the 6 string version also, just as another "fun" guitar as, for the price, these are just crazy good value.

For a beginner to 7 string, as I've said before, I would fully recommend this there's no need to spend more and for people familiar with 7 strings I would also say that it's a great guitar. I did mention earlier that the neck is a little deeper than an Ibanez but that doesn't mean this is a "slow" guitar, I've been playing loads of crazy death metal riffs on it and it really suits that sort of play. The slight increase in neck depth almost makes playing it feel more weighty and, well, "heavy" ;-)

No quibbles here, this is a steal and represents yet more high quality/low price value from Harley Benton.

Best £100 I have ever spent on a guitar.

You cannot find a better quality guitar for £100, let alone a 7 string. The pickups are very good. The knobs have a nice resistance so they cant accidentally turn down while your playing. There is barely any static coming off the guitar when the volumes up and it isn't being played. The fret board is very nice. The best feature I would say is how easy it is to pinch harmonic practically every note. The only thing I think would of made this guitar better is to of put in a bridge with a whammy bar in. But saying this I literally could not care any less. THIS AXE IS FROM ZEUS HIMSELF. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED LIKE ME :) ! ( I play metal genre... )

Haven't been this impressed with a guitar for a long time...

The guitar essentially feels and looks like a virgin guitar. Never been touched by other human hands with a very smooth finish and nice feel. Did I really only pay this little for this guitar?

The guitar arrived in standard tuning, almost perfectly by my surprise. The strings are great. Intonation is fine. The build and all visual aspects exceeded my expectations.

After plugging in the guitar to my Line 6 Spider IV, it became clear that my typical distortion sound needed some modifying for this guitar. After changing some EQ settings and using a combination of overdrive, distortion and reverb, I reached an acceptable sound.

I have to say, I first bought this guitar with the intention of putting high quality pickups in order to save money. At the moment, I feel ever so reluctant to do anything to this guitar, as it feels so great and the pickups really aren't that bad.

For a beginner to 7 strings or even guitar, this would have to be the perfect guitar, for its amazing design, decent sound and unbelievable price. For more experienced guitarists, I still recommend this guitar, as it has so much potential that has yet to be explored, and, if you decide to change the pickups, you can turn this guitar into anything you want it to be.
