What can I say - awesome start to finish! Starting with Thomann, order placed and 5 days later (with a holiday weekend in between) guitar was delivered to UK. Not only that but the communications and order tracking was second to none! Highly recommended!
OK, the Harley Benton DC-Custom 612... I was skeptical about Harley Benton being cut price copies but, YouTube research and chats with friends who own put my mind at rest. This is one truly beautiful guitar both in looks and sounds. Looks, a beautiful well finished cherry glaze on a solid mahogany body & neck, quality pups and hardware. In terms of sound, everything you'd expect from a Gibbo but at a tenth of the price! The 12 string is crisp, clear and jangly and the 6 string equally so but gutsy as hell when you kick in an overdrive amp setting! The one downside, stating the bleeding obvious, this is one hell of a head / neck heavy guitar. Well duh, it's got two necks! This is not a negative, just need to adjust your playing style a bit to hold the neck up - or rest it on your knee for a VERY comfortable play. Overall, for the chunk of wood and hardware, it's surprisingly light. Final thing, it comes with a custom hard case which, in itself, would be worth £60 - £100 to buy. Any doubters should give this, or Harley Benton in general, a real chance - a LOT of instrument for your cash!
There are slight cons in this guitar but those don't matter when you look at the cost of it. The Grover tuners alone cover around 1/4th of the price. It feels great and sounds great. It is quite heavy but that is to be expected. If you're someone who plays live you would only be using this for a song or two. I only had two issues with mine out of the box. The first being slight fret buzz on the upper frets on the 6 string, but that can be fixed somewhat easily. And the second being the finish on the head stock of the 12 string, well there are some obvious flaws there. But from a distance you can't really tell and it still looks gorgeous. If you're looking for a double neck then go no further than this unless you want to spend over a grand for the epiphone one, or way more than that for the Gibson.
