Wish we had that 40 years ago
Karsten aus C., 23.10.2019
Oooookay,
so my Candy Apple Red and Metallic Blue TM20 arrived today. Outer cardboard box was slightly knackered, but inner boxes were okay, except for the styrofoam neck rests, who gave their structural integrity to protect the guitar inside.
No more plastic fillers, but only crushed paper, which I like. Try folded cardboard for the neck rests, you might get rid of those plastic pieces, too.
Have not received any goodies with the guitars, no stickers, no picks, nothing.
From the first looks, the guitars might even come from different factories. The metallic blue guitar is significantly heavier than the red guitar. Haven't had them on the scales - yet - but I'd say the difference is at least 1 kg.
Paintwork is more than acceptable. The blue is a tad lighter than expected, but the red one is that kind of deep "Oooh Yeah!" red that gives me an instant ... cough. Let's leave it there.
The blue one actually has a three ply scratchguard, so that's a pro. The chrome bridge looks better in reality than on the photos. I will check intonation and - yes, it's a Tele, you won't be able to intonate it properly - if it's okay, the chrome bridges may even stay.
Can't say anything about playability yet, as the guitars need to settle down a bit and adjust to the climate here, but so far I'm not disappointed.
Well, there are niggles, though. The neck for instance is cheap. Feels good, but it's not, what you would expect from a proper Tele neck. A maple fretboard Tele neck is hewn from one piece of maple, the truss is set in from the back, hence the prominent skunk stripe. With this neck, they just slapped a maple fretboard on. I know, it is possibly cheaper to use the same neck blanks for all of the HB Teles and then just use different fretboards, but, well, it's not THAT important, but I just noticed it.
Both guitars have a nice first feel. The neck is definitively NOT Tele,, it is wider and flatter than the usual Tele neck. Fret sprout is absent and the narrow thin frets are looking okay -n even though they are not polished. Switches and potentiometers feel solid. Tuners feel and look cheap, but they might do their job.
The red guitar has some issues with the strings not lining up properly, the strings are shifted about 2 mm to the bass side, but this might as well be dealt with by adjusting the bridge, there is enough travel there and then it might even align better with the pickups. The strings are not THAT far off, it's more a bit of a niggle.
Oh dear, the blue guitar REALLY is a heavy one. Don't want to wear that for a long gig ....
Both guitars fell off the production line and passed QC at the 15th of July 2019. Both were checked by Alan.
So, what is my verdict after just ogling over the new TE20 from Harley Benton?
Hardware is better than expected. Triple ply pickguards may stay. Chrome bridge is not too bad, but will be changed to a proper string-through-body part later. Not as soon as expected, but at a later stage.
Paintwork is as good as any Fender.Impressive.
I wish we had guitars of that quality at that price when I was younger. Now I'm in my mid 50's, but when I started guitars, we have had proper sh!t for ridiculous money, you have it good, you don't know how bad we've had it.
Am I happy? If the rest - playability, sound - is up to par, I could not be more happy. Buy the red one - the blue one is too heavy - help yourself to a 5-way super switch and some better pots, caps - without looking at those, they can't be good - and tuners, and you will have a modern Tele. Drop in some better pups if you have to and for way less than 200 €/£/$ you will have a fine, gigworthy instrument. If you ask me "Buy a TE20 HB, pimp it up and put the difference between that and a MiM into gear, lessons, beer?" my answer will always be "Fuck, yeah!"

How is this even possible?
CharlieMay1, 20.10.2019
So, I bought this guitar for my son as a Christmas present as they appeared to be selling fast.

It arrived super quickly in double cardboard boxes in perfect condition. So top marks to Thomann for that. They always send plenty of emails regarding the status of the item which I like.

When buying such a cheap guitar there really is no risk at all. If it's rubbish then so what? If it's great then hooray!

In our case, this guitar is absolutely mind-blowingly good. I was going to buy the kit version but I knew I wouldn't be able to achieve the quality finish on the body, which is immaculate. Beautiful colour and lovely metallic sparkle.

Frets are mint with perfect filing. The satin feel maple neck is a joy. It was set up really nicely and just needed a little tune-up, of course, to get the ball rolling.

We will be using this guitar as a project later on, upgrading pick-ups and machine heads etc as we go, but for now this is an absolute steal.

My son already has a CST24 and a CST24HB both of which as fab too.

Feeling lucky today that I can be the great provider (for not a lot of cash) :-) Very, very happy.

Thanks again Thomann, another great deal.

Fantastic initial impression!
Squawker, 16.10.2019
The guitar arrived this morning. I unpacked it, checked it over, tuned it, plugged it in and played for 10 minutes.
I bought a TE-30 a couple of years ago, for an Esquire/Bigsby project. Sadly the body on that was very heavy (asian ash), and I muffed the bridge/Bigsby alignment a bit so when I spotted the TE-20MN with the lovely metallic blue basswood body I had to have it to fix my project.
The body really does have a great finish. The neck is nicer than the TE-30 neck too - the C-profile feels a bit slimmer which I like a lot. No fret sprout and a nice rounded-off finish. Tuners are ok - not super smooth and precise but perfectly usable. Pickups and electronics all sound/feel great, especially given the price. The action was high, but that's easily fixable (maybe partly due to transport in wet, autumn conditions).
It's a beautiful guitar that's playable out of the box, at an absolute bargain price.
Docked a single star for features because, well, it's a T-style - they don't have fancy features and neither should they!

Amazing for the price
damo, 16.10.2019
Baffled by the quality of this guitar for 80 euros.
Nice neck, no pokey frets.
Tuners work.
Finish looks amazing, can't find any visual flaws.

Surprisingly heavy for a basswood body, but in a good way.
I can't get over the finish quality for the price. It's better finished than the TE-70 deluxe model I owned.

Sounds like a tele, a little screechy on the bridge pickup, but overall very good.

Very playable guitar, action is nice and low.

I'm delighted and might spring for the CA red model also.

Vintage style T guitar for reasonable price
antonl1911, 16.10.2019
Ordered this one to have something more that superstrats in my collection.
First the neck feeling - it's C-shape close to nut, but then gradually becomes somewhat of a D-shape, hence the modern-C in the specs.
The bridge is the most basic vintage style you can get, with shared saddles for 3 couples of strings. Volume/tone and the 3 pos switch work as intended.
After setting up the action & neck relief the guitar sings.
Frets are of the vintage variety (thin and low).
The color is beautiful. Tuners work pretty well. Nut was cut bit too deep for bundled 9-42 set of strings (the 6th string is completely submerged into the nut), but at the same time it's too high to get really low action.
Overall, I am impressed with the level of the instrument for the money, it sets the new heights.

I arrange and work as a session musician, for a long time I chose an inexpensive instrument for creating solos and rhythm of parts in daw. Just shocked by build quality and sound. The best guitar, very happy with the price! I advise everyone

Amazing for the price
Sarg, 18.10.2019
I got it a few days ago, more out of curiosity than by real need.
I really wanted to know what the deal was with the famous Harley Benton everyone's talking about.
Now I understand : I'm astonished by the overall quality for the price.

For the objective part :
The fret job is perfect, the finish is wonderful and it's fully playable out of the box. It's a bit more heavy than expected, thought.

In a subjective way, now :
The guitar sound really good and the neck is amazing :')

10/10, would recommend.
