Harley Benton Electric Guitar Kit T-Style

Electric Guitar Assembly Kit T-Style

The body and neck are primed with pore filler making them ideal for direct applications of varnish. This, however, makes them not suitable in combination with staining. In such cases, the unit must be re-sanded prior to application of a staining agent.

Good kit to work with, but not a guitar one can assemble and play right away

V_Korneev, 09.05.2018
PROS.

1. Technically, this kit allows you to follow an IKEA-like manual and put together a guitar, functionally identical to a cheap guitars of well-known-brands-we-won?t-mention-here for a fraction of their price.

2. The body and the neck are done surprisingly well for a price, they fit together better than I saw on some? ahem? much more expensive guitars. Frets don?t try to cut you to death. Neck is not bent to a propeller shape. Slots in the body for neck and pickups are precise enough.

3. Other parts are inexpensive yet mostly funcional. I planned to replace everything except body and neck, but left tuning machines, bridge and some other things be: they are okay to the level when ?good enough? turns into ?just good?.

CONS.

1. Frets require some work. Frets are unpolished (which is not a problem) and sometimes are slightly uneven (which IS a problem). So if you need a low action without buzzing, fret leveling is in order, and fret leveling is not a task for a complete newbie.

Nut is a regular plastic thing, and it is not set to a proper height. To get a proper action and proper tone, you should cut it to the right height, which requires some minimal understanding of the task, some skills and at least some tools. So, again, not a task for a complete newbie.

2. There?s no shielding and a kit manual never mentions that shielding is required, which could become a problem for a newbie. You?ll need to shield a guitar with foil or graphite, otherwise it will work like a good old radio antenna, buzzing left and right.

3. Build quality is not perfect when it comes to a small things. All screw holes, including holes for neck bolts, are hand-drilled sloppily, which means random depth and direction of each and every hole. If you suffer from serious case of perfectionism, just like me, it?s easier to seal and redrill those holes. Otherwise you probably can ignore it: screws still hold it together, so it?s okay. Tip: always use a wax on screws, it helps.

Fingerboard of my guitar had a small splotch of some brownish substance that tried (with questionable success) to mask a small dent in a wood. It didn?t affect playability, but it wasn?t nice to look at form close distances, so it had to be fixed.

Tone control in my kit wasn?t working. It wasn?t a problem for me, as I just replaced all electronics. But such things could be a problem for some kiddo, who doesn?t know how to solder wires yet. Be ready to rewire the guitar properly.


CONCLUSION.

In general, this kit is a good base for amateur guitar builds and experiments. Reshape the body, paint it wild, cut the head as you please, add pickups of your dreams... Kit has no critical flaws and allows you to build a really good ?semi-custom? guitar for a ridiculously low price if you are ready to put some work in it.

Kit is ?technically functional? even right after screwdriver assembly and basic tuning, but don?t expect much from it. Fifteen minutes of intense screwdriving will turn a kit into an electromechanical tool, which in a dim light could be considered an electric guitar. But it won?t rise to its full potential without additional efforts.

The goodness outshines the minor flaws

SamD, 17.12.2015
It's hard to review this kit because as a finished guitar it has some flaws: notably the body is too light and the guitar headstock pulls towards the ground on a strap. This can ruin the feel of a guitar and it's such a dopey thing to lose out on. Also, the pickup selector switch is ridiculously stiff - a point that others have noted in their reviews. And that's all the bad points summed up in one go.

I set up guitars for my business and I bought this kit to see just how good it is given the amount of great feedback it gets. I also wanted to see just how good a guitar this could be with the addition of a really good set up (including precision fret-levelling) and some quality pickups.

The good points start from the moment you order the kit. First off, the price. It's cheap for a decent-sounding electric guitar but it's ridiculously cheap for a great learning experience in a box for your son, daughter, husband, wife friend etc that also ends up with a playable guitar.

Next the box when it arrives. Neat, well organised, everything in compartments.

Then the discovery that the kit has printed instructions!?! That's a first! And the good stuff keeps coming - namely:

? Clean, well-cut body
? Excellent neck with remarkably few uneven frets and no sharp edges. Pretty rosewood
? Everything there, nothing missing
? Snap together connectors so no soldering needed
? All holes where they should be
? Perfect neck body fit

The guitar is a doddle to put together and the whole thing could be done in under an hour easily. In my case, I cut a Fender-style headstock, put on my own brand logo and lacquered the neck with some vintage amber. I put some waterbased ink stain on the body and finished it off with Tru-oil. Very very easy. However, I found that the basswood not only doesn't take the stain very well it also doesn't seem to have a very pronounced grain, making the end result look like a slightly flat and dull colour but to be honest, I didn't expect much more for the price.

I also installed Tone Rider pickups before putting the guitar together which did require a tiny bit of soldering as I added the HB 'snap together' connectors to the Tone Riders. Because of that, I didn't test out the stock pickups but I've no reason to doubt they're perfectly acceptable, given everyone else's comments.

Joining neck and body together is extremely easy. I performed a precision fret levelling and full set up on this guitar to get the best possible action from it but before I did, I tried it out in 'out of the box' configuration i.e. after only adjusting the bridge saddle heights - which anyone can do. The result was impressive - a very playable guitar with a pretty good action.

I didn't need to use the instructions but I did read them and they ARE very well-written with some really concise general set up advice - another real plus, Thomann.

Once together, does the guitar work for me? No - because the neck-heaviness is something I can't personally live with. Is it a superb package for anyone wanting to get into guitar building or to have a playable guitar for very little money - hell, yes.

There's no doubt about it, building a guitar from a kit leaves you feeling very attached to it which is great. Because of that, this guitar would have definitely been a 'keeper' for me - if only it wasn't head-heavy. If Thomann could get the manufacturer to measure the balance and add the necessary weight at the body end (even if cost a couple of quid more) it would make such a difference.

So sadly I'm left with a guitar I probably won't play unless I can find a way to add some lead shot to the body to cure the neck dive. As I didn't need the experience of putting the kit together it's real value was to learn that it's not something I'm going to do again.

Having said that, I still give it 5* because for a young person or a newcomer to the guitar it's a superb learning experience - one that's worth far more than the £57 price tag.
