Above expectations
Arkady Petrov, 20.05.2021
Long wait but worth it!
I use the guitar for amateur playing at home (mainly light melodic music).
Above all, a beautiful appearance and a flawless finish. No worse than the pictures of this guitar on the Thomann website.
The intervention of a guitar master was not required: everything was done well by the manufacturer.
Excellent clean sound - just what I need. Of course, there is a lot you can do with pickups like this.
Finally, high quality materials and parts.
So, only positive. Above expectations.

Quality Check?
Benjaminws, 09.12.2020
Just got mine today. Not a fan of the quality or sound. In all the demo's I see the guitar comes almost perfectly in tune and ready to play. Mine was far from it and needed a setup. Also they sound good in the demo's but mine sounds like a cheap guitar with too much output.

Quality 5/10
- Mine has a lot of overspray on the paint job
- The quilt looks like it was painted on(really flat)
- Nut is separated from the neck
- Fretboard chipped near truss rod adjustment
- Not all pores from the wood not filled so they look like small holes/dents on the body and side of fretboard
- Pots touch the wood, you have to lift them a bit to not constantly scratch the wood underneath

- Super high action: 6 mm above 15th fret. Bridge saddle were at max
- Was probably never tuned. Tuning was no were near any sane note
- Totally not intonated
- Neck was perfectly straight though

Sound 5/10
- Clean with treble rolled off sounds good. Ambient/post-rock cleans are pretty nice
- Anything with gain sounds harsh, like using a cheap distortion pedal on an amp with an 8" speaker
- Used a Line6 Helix Floor, Orange Dark Terror and H&K tubemeister for sound tests
- The amount of output drives the tube amps a lot so need to back down the gain
- Cannot use same amp settings between this guitar and an passive high output guitar
- Especially the helix, most presets are unusable if you do not turn down the gain
- Taking the battery out seems like only the output level drops and little less treble
- Might even prefer to run it passive

Pro's:
- Neck is small which is great for chords or hendrix style playing
- Guitar design is awesome
- Good access to upperfretboard, could have reached a 28th fret if present
- Fretwork nice and no single note buzz. Could not get the neck super low though but pretty low

Con's:
- Quality
- Sound
- Neck is thick, more vintage C profile then modern. Makes it less fast

All can i say about this guitar - OMG!
BetweenTheDeadPlanets, 25.10.2020
Just totally impressed with this guitar. This is my First Harley Benton.
The Amarok is not going to need any upgrades whatsoever. Playability, action, and sound are fantastic. Pickups are great sounding. Love it.
I highly recommend it!

I never liked active pickups until meeting this guitar.
Fantastic value and all my HB purchased guitars and cases (4 total) arrived within two weeks and I live in Northern Canada where regular, in country Amazon orders have taken up to a month and a half.
