some slight issues, but would buy again.

The specs on this guitar for the price are great, you won't find a better bargain that's for sure. That being said, the quality control could be a lot better and the setup upon receiving said instrument was among the worst I've encountered. There are extremely noticeable tooling marks on most of the fret edges above the 15th fret, which for any guitar honestly seems ridiculous, my HB JA-60 cost about 1/3rd of the price and was handled with more care, as was my TE-20. Now the setup like stated above was honestly just horrible, the action was so high that it was unplayable. I will give HB the benefit of doubt though because this guitar did also sit in a warm delivery truck all day, not to mention the climate changes it had endured shipping from Germany. However, the nut was cut extremely high, enough to where any note on the 1st fret would instantly be sharp. After taking a file to it the problem was remedied, but as ALSO stated above I've bought HB guitars for 1/3 the price and not had as bad of an issue.

Now that the negatives are out of the way, this is a BEAUTIFUL guitar for the price, and after it was set up plays just as beautifully, the bridge is awesome and so are the locking tuners! The neck is unexpectedly thick, which I don't at all mind just don't expect an Ibanez style profile. The pickups are good, but they're just not my style I would prefer the EMG 81/60 set or 57/66 set. If you're considering buying this guitar, just expect to put a little bit of work into it.


I would gladly pay 100€ more to get a guitar without finish flaws.

This guitar ennoys me. It feels great, sounds pretty good and looks great from a distance.
The frets are perfect, construction and build feels great. The pickups are passive design but with an added active preamp. They are hotter than a PAF, but not super hot. Neck shape is comfortable, a bit wide, flat, not thin at all. Reminds me a bit of the neck shape of ESP EII's.

My main frustration with this guitar is that there are some pretty obvious finish flaws that could have been prevented. On the front of the headstock there is some glue recidu which can't be removed because it is underneat the finish. It is very noticble because the headstock has a dark color. On the back of the body there are more spots and lines of finish or glue that can easily be seen. Same story, it is underneath the finish so it can't be removed. The binding on the body looks like wood, looks great, but at the top of one of the horns of the body this wooden binding seems sanded? It has completely lost it's wood color and looks white. It could be glue as well, glue that has been sanded or polished?

Anyways great guitar build, looks great from a distance but up close it ha some obvious cosmetic flaws which could have been avoided.

So if HB makes another batch, price them 50 euros higher and spent a bit more time on finishing the guitar without any flaws.

I do realize that I could have been unlucky and received that one guitar with the noticeable finish flaws.


Harley Benton Amarok-6 Curve
Sallyvan360 28.10.2021
I bought a guitar with delivery to Russia. When choosing, I was guided by positive reviews on the Internet. What I received did not meet my expectations ... The guitar is poorly assembled ... The neck is curved, the frets come out of the fretboard and cut the hands. The strings cannot be lowered to a comfortable height. In Russia, it costs 100 euros to bring a guitar back to normal. Extremely disappointed with the purchase.
Sorry for the computer translation


great guitar with a little issue
effepunto 07.02.2022
first of all, great sound, great look, great playability. Components are top notch, and I really like the versatility of the pickups, though they are very hot. Tone and volume pot are okay. Nut is great, so is the neck finish and frets. Setup was between fine and great (nut setting was perfect, much better than my les paul or my american strato). Action was a little high for this sort of guitar, that's supposed to be shreddable. And there was the little issue. I needed a little more relieve of the neck to bring the action as low as it can get, and I got there, so that's okay. The issue is that now the truss rod is completely released with no tension at all; still the guitar would like to have like 1/2 mm more relieve on the neck. Luckily it's great anyway, but it's weird not to be able to relieve the neck more. all in all, anyway, I love it.
