A Shock to the system!

ISBM, 18.08.2016
No, not because of the low rumble of this beast through my Blackstar, but because you spend you whole time as a guitar playing being told "you get what you pay for" and then someone goes and makes this!

As the previous reviews seem to also confirm, this was bought to trial being a 7 string owner without hurting the bank balance and, to mimic the others, I am very impressed.

Build Quality & Hardware
No complaints. It feels sturdy with a chunky body (helps to conterweight that wide neck) and very good recessed neck joint. The neck is thin for a 7 string (I've played others but never owned one) and unfinished. Personally I'd rather have an oiled or painted finish, but this is preference and will be solved when I have space on my workbench. Pickups? Not great. By no means the worst for a guitar of this cost, but they lose clarity at the low end and lack the depth of better made counterparts. Sound great clean and higher up though! Controls are noiseless and free moving.

The real shocker:
This beauty is set up like a pro! The action was spot on, the intonation near-perfect and straight out the box (in the UK) she played like a dream. The biggest issue I find with cheap guitars is they need a decent set up to be playable but this is an exception. Thomann have put their name to this and will not be losing any reputation with such a great starter priced guitar.

Now, where's that black paint and Seymour Duncan Nazgul?...

Harley Benton R-457 BK Progressiv Series

Kre?imir , 21.06.2017
I use this guitar primarily for metal as it is a metal axe.

Pros: -weight is very good and balanced
-sound from the pickups is also surprisingly good
-action was good from the box
-cosmetically everything looks good
-nut is cut well
-good value for the money


Cons: -tuners are not very good, they hold the tuning but
after some bends and few songs you may have to re check it.

-regardless of good action I still needed to add some relief in the neck but i think its mainly from the shipping, at the end its only 144 euro guitar.

I recommend this guitar to anybody that needs a decent 7 string at a great price.
