The Harley Benton SC-450Plus HB Vintage Series & the Harley Benton SC-Custom Vintage Black
This review is looking at Harley Benton SC-Custom Vintage Black
First off? I have to admit that I was a little bit worried about making an order. I live all the way in the central US (Missouri), and I had no idea of how long it would take to get the guitars?nor, what kind of condition they would be in once I got them.
I placed the order on January 15th, and I received the guitars on January 23rd. From Germany, to the central US. In my opinion, that is pretty good time.
The guitars arrived with absolutely no damage. The large box carrying the equipment was full of those small packing air bags, which kept everything inside mint. The outside box did have a small bit of wear, but it wasn?t anything at all substantial.
One reason I made the leap and ordered these guitars, was because I had reached a point in my playing where I was Stratocastered out. I read online a review by someone who stayed the SC-Custom was good for just about every kind of music. He might be right, but so far, I believe this thing was born especially to rock.
Even though the 450 and the Custom both share Wilkinson MWCHBG alnico vintage-style pickups, they both have a different sound to them. I can?t tell you why?and I?m sure it?s not because of the beautiful black, matte finish?but the Custom easily slides into anything from a solid 80?s metal sound, to modern drop D metal. I love it. It?s loud. It?s mean. It has bite! Turned up, it makes a Tyrannosaurus Rex cry for it?s momma.
The gold/black color scheme reminds me of music royality. Which is good!
Grover tuners? YEAH!
The only problem that I have with this guitar comes with the neck?BUT, it?s more about personal taste, than something being wrong with it. For my personal taste, it?s just a little bit narrow and thin. Especially around the nut. The neck on the 450 is much more familiar?other than that, everything is perfect.
Personally, I love the SC-Custom. I'm planning on buying a backup because I am going to use it live as my main axe. Its worth much more than the cost, and players like me are reaping the benefits of these wonderful guitars.
