Excellent, with a few minor niggles
theskirrid 12.10.2020
First Impressions:
A lot browner than the images suggest. Book-matched top, really nicely sculpted heel, comfortable neck. Shipping carton supportive, arrived in the UK three days after ordering with no shipping problems.
Some finish flaws, a blob of the satin top coat in the centre of the back, and also two dings on the back. The binding was also a bit dirty, not fully scraped before the finish was applied.
Left to settle after unboxing and then tuned up and tested.

First Setup:
Nice solid Grover tuners, intonation bang-on perfect out of the box [a first!]. No truss rod adjustment required, bridge down about 2mm and tailpiece up to ensure strings cleared the back of the bridge. Graphite nut cleaned up and E and A nut slots cut down by 0.5mm. Solid strap-locks.
Frets polished, and fretboard oiled.

First play:
Holy cow. Damn this plays so well. Roswell HAF pickups [only available on this Custom II] are nicely punchy with the volume rolled off, and very hot when run flat out. Not super-defined when run into a ton of gain but a slight volume roll cures that. Nice pickups. All electrics work well, no hum or crackles, shielding to all cavities.
Not as heavy as you might expect but there is still a bit of neck dive.
All frets level and neck perfect, not even needed to remove the truss rod cover yet. After adjustment action nicely low, neck fast, no buzzes.
A joy to play. Currently sporting a set of D'Addario EXL120BT with no other mods considered or necessary. Even the nut [a usual issue I have with Harley Bentons] just needed two slots deepening, otherwise it's been very smooth even after extreme bending.

Inspiring, one of those guitars that makes you play.
By far the best Harley Benton guitar I've bought in many years.

Quite disappointed
Andre Lima 09.11.2021
Bought the guitar on a Sunday afternoon and it reached me (Republic of Ireland) 5 business days after. That is probably as good as it gets in terms of delivery time for something like a musical instrument coming from thousands of miles away, so I was quite happy with that.

Upon taking it out of the box, it looked OK... but unfortunately a lot browner than what the photos in the website, as well as some videos in that 'VideoPlatform' .

I obviously can't state this with absolute certainty, but I could bet something changed in the manufacturing process and the color is not quite the same anymore. But all right... that's a cosmetic thing. It is somehow important to me, yes, but not ultimately decisive on returning the guitar or not. Still, I would say it was a good looking guitar. If that was the only 'issue' I would not be packing it again to return.

Now for the REAL issues:
Fret edges: rough! Not razor sharp, but definitely in need of considerable work. Very unpleasant to play... to the point that it actually becomes a detriment for playing.

Bridge: the nut where the poles screw in were not aligned nicely with the body. The one on the top was some good millimeters sunk into the body. The bottom one was slightly above the body level (I'm trying to describe it here with words, but it is a bit tricky to do so).

There were also several ink stains over the binding of the neck. I mean, all over it... more so on the upper frets (the ones closer to the body), but through the whole extension of the neck you could somehow easily spot little nudges of the same finish color used on the back of the neck. Really poorly done.


Other than that, controls/electronics seemed to work quite well. The coils split OK, nothing spectacular, nor terrible. Just 'yeah... ok'.

I had huge hopes for this guitar, after so many astonishing reviews. I guess I didn't lucked out. I still intend to buy another one, possibly of a different color. I really want this guitar to be good!

This thing value is higher than what it costs
Walekeru 26.12.2020
I was really skeptical about the quality called in YouTube videos and reviews in here. But after having it in my hands everything make sense.

It took more than a month to arrive (Colombia), but at the end it arrived in perfect shape, well packed and really robust box to protect it.

One of the things I really missed was the couple of stickers that people always shows in their YouTube unboxing videos.

Making it brief:

Good things:
- Omg what a guitar.
- the tuners are really accurate.
- nice sound even for its price.
- that thing looks really beautiful, the color is almost exactly as shown in the page, the two-colors humbuckers fit really good with th body color.
- really nice fretboard.

Not that good things:
- action kinda high, tried to take it down but looks like it needs a trustrod adjustment.
- fretboard is really, really, really dry... Omg I've hydrated it a couple of times and still getting dry.
- the binding could be cleaner.
- some really really minor details (not really noticeable unless you really look for it).
- the pots could be smoother.

At the end of the day this guitar is really impressive, even if you don't consider its price.

Great guitar for the money, but QC is questionable.
Adam Lebzo 20.09.2020
Good:
- This guitar is a LOOKER! The flame veneer is gorgeous and the satin finish looks and feels fantastic.
- Although it took about 21 days to arrive, the guitar was almost in tune and in perfect intonation.
- The neck is quite interesting. It's comfortable to play, but a bit on the chunky side - in a good way.
- Frets are well rounded with no sharp edges.
- Pickups surprised me. They are high output and definitely not something you'd expect to find on a $200 guitar. I am especially liking the neck pickup in both modes (humbucker and split)

Bad:
- Binding is FILTHY. There are a lot of spots on this guitar where the binding is dirty or needs some work.
- Fretboard is dry as a bone.
- Frets are very scratchy and dull.
- Nut is badly placed, traps the strings, and covered in glue (needs to go for sure)
- Truss rod cover has a deep scratch
- Neck and body have a couple of small dings.
- Right bridge post is slightly tilted. It doesn't seem to cause any issues for now, but time will tell.

Despite all the bad stuff, this guitar remains a great deal for the money! Almost unbelievable.
