2nd Harley Benton Guitar (best one yet)!
Ed Bray, 21.04.2018
My main guitar when gigging is a £5000 20th Anniversary PRS but when I wanted a backup guitar of the same scale length I thought I was going to get a PRS SE as it seemed to be the cheapest option, bearing in mind it was just going to sit on the stage in case I broke a string on the PRS.

After receiving my BigTone Vintage Guitar which I was very pleased with I decided to have a look at the Harley Benton PRS style selection
before I placed an order.

After doing a bit of research and watching of many youtube videos I thought I would take a punt and decided to order the CST-24T Ocean Flame, after all, if it was really rubbish (as some of the reviews stated, although the majority of the review were in favour), I could always send it back.

The delivery was up to Thomann's usual speed and 2.5 days after placing the order I was opening the box to my view my new toy.

After opening the box I was taken aback by the beauty of the guitar, I looked for the few blemishes (that were often mentioned in the reviews) in the finish, but could not find any, next, The neck felt really nice although the fretboard seemed a bit flatter than any other guitar I own. I put the tremolo bar into the socket (expecting it to be very loose and fall out, as per the reviews) and it was set up no differently from my PRS, loose enough to spin under tension but did not move on its own. The only visible issues I could find on the guitar were that the roseacre fretboard seemed very dry and the frets looked like they had a haze from polish on them. The frets ends were very smooth and seemed to be level.

Next I looked at the action which although okayish was higher than I prefer to have, so I wanted to test the electronics before making any physical adjustments to the guitar so that if it didn't work correctly I was still able to send it back. Fortunately all worked well. The bridge is a Wilkinson Tremolo and very well made, The tuners all worked well, and although I would have preferred locking tuners on a guitar with a Tremolo these seemed to do the job okay (although I will replace these later for locking types).

Firstly, I removed all the strings and set about oiling the fretboard with Lemon Oil, it took three full applications before the fretboard seemed sated and I was able to wipe off the excess. I then checked the frets with a straight edge and all seemed well. Next I installed a fresh set of Fender Stainless Steel Flatwound strings 9-42 and adjusted the action to suit my normal playing style. After letting the guitar settle down for a day I started playing it for real.

So to playing it, the guitar looks, plays and sounds fantastic. Although the pickups have a different sound to those on my PRS, it is not a bad sound, just different.

In conclusion, how does it stand up to my PRS, to be honest how could a £192 guitar stand up against a £5000 guitar? Well to be frank, it doesn't, but then is the £5000 guitar 25x better than the £192 guitar? Absolutely not, a set of new locking tuners, a change of electronics (pickups, pots, switch and output socket cost circa < £300) and the difference becomes very, very much closer.

28/04/18 I've just realised that my Ocean Flame CST-24T was made in Vietnam as opposed to China.

For the money, the one I have is incredible value, and I see another new CST-24T in Emerald Green Flame (I don't have a green guitar) on the horizon.

Full review here on youtube "Cory Mura"
1. Look at the price!
2. look at the price of the competition.

excellent playability,sound, and the Wilkinson tremolo is one of the best out there. 100% tuning stability IF setup right once. its not the guitars fault if the player doesnt know how to setup (no offense :) )

There are little issues like dirty bindings and some tool marks on the fret ends...tuners could be a little better too.
but overall its a bargain...absolut bargain and can compete with guitars double the price easily.
the wilkinson pickups are very versatile,especially together with the coil split function...gives you 6 different switching options.
-easy to reach the last frets.
-electronics work better then expected,tone pot and volume pot is very useable
-balanced guitar
-graphite nut helps with the tuning stability
-very resonsant guitar
