Great sound, amazing value
Paul/Poalo/Pablo, 10.03.2019
I've been playing guitar since 1978. How I wish we had Thomann when I was a kid, or indeed a young adult!

I'd always wanted one of those short-lived LP Customs that were all-mahogany and had a P90 plus that other odd-looking single coil, which were around at the end of the 60s. This is based on the same idea.

The guitar did not disappoint. It's well made, very solid, and it plays and sounds way above its price point. I have a number of posh guitars, including a PRS with rosewood neck (neck, not board) and a real 60s Tele. What you get with really expensive guitars today is just a bit more finesse. It's not a night and day difference. What you get with vintage ones is history and some outstanding sounds, with quaint playability.

This Harley Benton SC Custom P90 guitar looks gorgeous, in a black and gold kind of way. Very sleek and lots of gold bits. I like especially the fact that it looks a lot less like a Gibson in real life than in the photos (the cutaway is sharper etc), and they've added some nice touches like locking strap buttons.

The scale length and fingerboard are the right dimensions for this style of guitar. The neck is perhaps a little more C shaped than I prefer, but this is a minor point - it plays very well. Mine came well set up. After a year I adjusted the truss rod, which is normal after the wood has had a chance to settle down. The action is low and buzz-free.

The volume and tone controls are located just below the dip of the carve, which makes them easily adjustable from underneath with the side of the hand, while protecting them slightly from being knocked as you play.

The Wilkinson P-90s are excellent. You have a really good range of sounds, with the tone control actually making a difference rather than just on-off. You can get dark thuddy jazz, chimey jazz instead, jangle, bluesy leads, and louder rock leads really easily. I usually play two pickup guitars in the middle position, and this one is great there, really floaty and summery. I can also get a sort of Ramones-style "paper-tearing" rhythm sound. I've recorded this in a "duel" with a Les Paul Studio, and this won. All right, maybe due to the players, too, but it shows that it can. There's an agreeable authority to the way it voices its notes.

The best compliment I can pay the guitar is that when I first got it I played it for over an hour, even though I'd not got around to opening it until after midnight. It just felt really natural and like an old friend.

Two things to note. The strap buttons are so huge, the guitar can't stand up straight against an amp or the wall. You need a proper stand, or to lean it in a corner. Mine fell over once, and, to its credit, despite landing flat on its face, all that broke was the plastic toggle switch for pickup selection. Two - I've seen others mention strange black-grey gunk on the fingerboard. Mine had this too, but it came off after two plays. It also washed off my hands v easily! At first I was worried that the fingerboard felt dry and gritty, but once this gunk had worn off, it was lovely. No complaints at all. If leaving on the gunk is how they keep the price down, then gunk away to your heart's content!

The most important thing with a guitar is that you feel comfortable and relaxed with it, and this one feels just like an old friend - it does the things I expect, responds to the nuances, and it has courage when you need to really push.

Really outstanding value, with a warm but versatile sound and strong pickups that impart edge when you want it, but can be sweet and smooth sounding if you're gentle with them.

Strongly recommend.

Excellent guitar
Too many guitars, 17.10.2017
This is a real beauty to look at with a high gloss black finish and gold hardware with cream multiply binding, all generally nicely done with no major flaws, if i were to be extremly critical the reverse of the guitar had some bleeding through of the wood grain in areas and there are a couple of areas where there are knots on the wood but you really have to catch the light reflection to see these., The front of the guitar and neck are finished flawlessly. The guitar has some weight to it which I do like.

The best thing about this guitar is that playability is perfect straight out of the box with a very low action smooth frets and a clean tone with no buzzing, this guitar plays very well indeed. Initially I was put off by the rosacer fretboard as was a little dry but it appears very dark with a nice grain coming through which pops when oiled and polished with some fretboard conditioner. Frets are well finished with no sharp ends are are best described a medium jumbo, quite tall which makes for easy bending.

The wilkinson p90 pups have a fair bit of growl in the rear position and can be quite jangly especially on strummed arppegiated chords with a nice warmth in the front pickup, overall the tone has a warm rocky sound with the treble cutthrough when needed. The tone pot is a bit all on or of, maybe a pot change will address this.

I changed the straplocks as I prefer a standard strap button, I do not trust the design as the lock mechanisim relies on three very small cams which will wear in time.

In summary I have been supplied with a first rate playing and sounding instrument far better than its price would have me believe, consequently, it is easy to disregard some very minor cosmetic defects and design issues with the straplocks and tone control. A great Guitar!
