Very good value. Excellent guitar for the price.

jianwhite, 24.04.2017
The body is made up of three pieces of wood and is very light. However, it is surprisingly resonant. On mine, the grain and width of the two outer sections match perfectly. The centre section has a very straight and contrasting fine grain. As I have varnished the body using rub on thinned varnish after hand sanding all over with 400 and 600 sandpaper, the grain shows through and looks good. The result is an ?aged, natural? look, which is precisely what I was looking for. So for me, it is very pleasing aesthetically.

The neck is a perfect and very tight fit into the body pocket. It is an even better fit than the two other Harley Benton kits I have built (Single Cut and TL) and I was very pleased with both of those. The rosewood finger board is smooth and blemish free. The frets are very level for the price range. Only one fret (4th) being slightly high. A quick sand and polish sorted out the problem. The slots in the nut all wanted additional filing to lower the strings for good action and ensure intonation. The groove positioning was perfect. This extra work has resulted in a good low action and enabled me to set the guitar up to Fender strat specifications. Remember you have to shape the head stock yourself. I used a router to cut a strat style shape without a problem. The back of the neck finish is very smooth and only has a light matt varnish. Left as it is, which I have done, it is a perfect smooth playing action. I would question how long the varnish will last though, before sanding and refinishing is necessary. All in all the neck is very good and well worth a little time and effort to get perfect.

As far as the pre-drilled holes go, only the low E tuner retaining screw was slightly out of place. All the others were okay, so no serious complaint, but as it was out by approximately a screw width, I had to plug the original hole and re-drill, as I was concerned the screw may not grip if I just left it.

The scratch plate needed slight sanding on the low E side of the neck in order to get a good fit. It does look good with the gold lettering on the volume/tone controls. The electrics worked well. The pickups are bright, but not very powerful. Setting up as close to the strings as specs allow is recommended. However I found the overall tone to be as good as a Squier, so at this price range, no complaints. To suit my personal taste, the neck pickup could be warmer, but this is personal and not everyone may agree.

The tremolo fitted well, but in my opinion could do with a larger block which would most likely improve sustain. Once again at this price range, perfectly acceptable.

The strings need to be replaced. After using them for setting up, I changed them for D?addario 9 ? 42?s. This made a vast improvement to tone. Definitely change the strings!

Without tweaking, this guitar is better than the cheap range Strat copies, which are twice the price. The neck is worth putting in a little extra effort as the overall quality is very good and if you put the effort in, the result is a guitar equally as good as a Squier.

I am very pleased with this guitar and apart from the fun/pleasure derived from building it, the resulting guitar is very playable. Even if you were unlucky enough to have more issues than I did, Thomann after sales service is the best I have experienced of any musical instrument supplier, so you do not have to worry. Delivery was incredible, equally as quick, if not quicker than some UK suppliers. If you are considering a kit guitar, I would recommend buying one of these without hesitation.

Seriously, give it a go

23.12.2015
I started learning the guitar about 18 months ago and had always wanted to build my own and as I already owned a Les Paul I thought I would go for the Stratocaster. I am so please I did and so please I came to Thomann. When my parcel arrived I was impressed on the way it was packaged, the product was well protected and the packaging was sturdy. I was not in when my kit arrived so was left with a neighbour so when I saw the massive dent in the box I was a little concerned about my purchase, however because of the packaging the product was in perfect condition.

Ok on to my actual review, I was pleasantly surprised when I began to open my purchase, the parts were of a very decent quality for the money, yes there is better out there, however for the money you pay for this item with Thomann there is no way you are going to get a better deal. The body of the guitar is already treated so take note that you HAVE to completely sand it down if you are colouring it, little tip for you I used cheap black ink and it worked an absolute treat. The pickups, tuners and strings etc are all very basic, however as previously said very decent for the money. The construction of the kit was as simple as simple could be, basically you bolt everything together and fit all the electrics, bridge, pickups etc. couldn't be more simple as all the electrics don't need any soldering as they are already done and all you have to do is clip them together and hey presto your guitar project is done.

One thing you will have to research on is the actual setup of a guitar because when I put my kit together the strings just laid flat on the guitar neck and could I get it right no I couldn't, well not until I went on the internet and researched about guitar setups. My action and general setup is now just fine, so don't worry if you come across the same issue, just go on the internet and research guitar setup for dummies and you will find all the info you need.

My kit made guitar is never going to be a Fender Strat it was a project for me that I am now very pleased with and you know what I can always look at it and say "I made that" Please ignore people who complain about pickups, strings or the quality of the wood on this kit, I seriously don't know what they want for this kind of money, a beginner / first timer will not be able to tell the difference, yes I can tell the difference now however this kit is well worth the money and was great fun doing it. If you ever fancied building a kit guitar I urge you to just go for it.

Hope my review helped oh and if you are learning the guitar I use acoustictuts.com one stop site for guitar tutorials.
