Premessa: non sono un professionista nè un audiofilo quindi saltate pure la mia recensione se cercate tecnicismi o confronti con altre Stratocaster più blasonate e costose.
Ho iniziato a suonare la chitarra quando andavo alle scuole medie circa 12/13 anni fa quando i miei genitori mi avevano regalato una Ibanez AMF73 pagata poco meno di 500euro, ma ho sempre desiderato l'iconica Strato.
Dopo avere ripreso a suonare qualche mese fa ho deciso di togliermi lo sfizio e di comprarmi questa Strato economica anche se mi aspettavo fosse un giocattolino.
Ho dovuto però ricredermi e sinceramente, in termini di qualità costruttiva, la trovo molto meglio rispetto alla mia vecchia Ibanez anche se costa meno della metà e non si scorda nemmeno se la lascio appesa alla parete per settimane anche senza suonarla.
Il colore nelle foto non rende molto l'idea e secondo me dal vivo è molto più bella, vi consiglio di cercare video su Youtube di questo colore Inca Silver, anche se ce ne sono molti pochi.
Unica pecca il tremolo, che se usato scorda abbastanza la chitarra.
Ovviamente consiglio l'acquisto, a questo prezzo mi sento di dire che non troverete di meglio, probabilmente Harley Benton (marca di Thomann) risparmia molto visto che vende esclusivamente su Thomann.

Second ST-62 this year
Emlyn K Helicopter 13.02.2021
I bought an ST-62CC Charcoal Frost last month (see my review of that for most of what applies here). Obviously I liked it so much I bought another one :)

I intended to fit a Hotrails to the Charcoal ST-62 as I play mainly metal, but liked the stock Roswell single coils so much that it seemed a shame to sacrifice such great clean and crunch tones to whats basically the one-trick-pony of a Hotrails guitar. So, the only thing to do was buy another ST-62 to have one of each. And, while we're at it, one in maple and one in pau ferro. All other aspects (bar the hardware colour) are identical.

The only area in which the Charcoal ST-62 fell down was the sharp fret edges, whereas in the Inca the fretwork is all good. That's probably luck of the draw with such mass-produced, minimally QC'd guitars like these. The fret tops are still scratchy (like the other one and, judging by the reviews on here, most ST-62s), but this goes away after a few hours of play.

Those vintage split tuning pegs look great but I'd get some locking pegs if I was going to take this out live. The trem, despite it being on a budget guitar and sporting the thinnest zinc block I've yet seen on any guitar, sounds excellent and works as well as any non-locking trem I've used. Comparing it to the Wilkinson unit in an older ST-70 I've had, this sounds better and has way more downward travel.

Fit and finish all as good as I've come to expect from Harley Benton. The 'Inca Silver' isn't the bright sterling silver you'd find on a Fender etc, but an almost 'old gold' greenish hue'd metallic grey. My first impression when opening the box was 'oh...' in the way you might react to an 'unexpected but not what you really wanted' Christmas present. It's grown on me, though, and looks really good on the wall-hanger next to its Charcoal Frost brother.

Chrome hardware looks great, as does the plastic stuff. I should mention how good the scratchplate and electronics are, by the way, if only because Harley Benton have really stepped up in this area lately.

So - upgrades: as the other ST-62 has me covered for basic Strat tones, I'm going to use this as my primary metal rhythm guitar for recording. It'll get a set of three rail-type humbuckers, locking tuners and roller string trees, plus some 500k pots. The chunky neck is fast with great note separation and sustain. Its not as solid sounding as the maple 'board, but probably more suitable as an 'upgrade platform'.

As before - I'd recommend these current ST-62s to anyone as they far surpass the price tag. My two have replaced guitars costing 3-5 times as much, they're that good. But.... you'll need to set it up yourself and its a roll of the dice as to whether you get one with frets that don't need additional work.

Good guitar for the price
Kikka 08.12.2021
Got it, inspected it, found some imperfections like under the vol/tone buttons there were three wrongfully drilled holes. One little mark in the painting but those were so small details that I don´t care.

Spent a few hours to set up the guitar, fret ends, a couple partly high frets, levelled and polished the frets, applied some lemon oil to the fretboard which seemed a little dry.

The tuners are somewhat stiff, but it may get better when applying some oil in them. No slack though. The nut is cut well, the intonation is ok, action was skyhigh but after the procedures I find the guitar to be very good for the price. I like the sounds of the Roswells, measured the ohms with a multimeter and they seemed to be between 5,60 and a little over 6 ohms.

No need to do anything radical here, I may change the bridge to a steel block one though. I enjoy the guitar now as it is, and this Inca Silver is just gorgeus, as is the darker, roasted looking neck! Good job!
