Amazing for the price!
Nickanimal, 19.10.2017
My first electric guitar (I've owned 2 bass guitars so far) so I don't have much to compare it to but for the price I have very little to complain about.

The only things I'd consider as negatives are that the strings it came with were okay but nothing special. I re-strung it with a £7 pack of DR DDT-10's and it sounds great! Also I'd have preferred a thru-body tremolo-style bridge as I've heard they have better sustain than the Tune-o-matic bridge this has but it's fine for a beginner like me.

The meh is that it needed a bit of a set up, but that's fine as that can be needed on more expensive guitars too.

Pro's then. I can't find any faults with the finish, overall build quality is great and I love the design, practicality be damned! It's not too heavy and the tuners are fine and smooth. Sound is great too though I'm sure the humbuckers it comes with aren't the best, but again it's perfectly fine for a beginner like me. Finally the price, way better than I was expecting for this kind of money!

Nice looking/playing Axe
AceofBass, 23.05.2019
I knew going in that this was a "B-Stock" item, so I expected a slight blemish or two. I did NOT expect a large chip out of the paint and wood on one corner. This guitar should have been listed as damaged or "C-Stock", as the defect is rather large and obvious. That said, once cleaning, oiling of the fretboard, and setup was done; it sounds rather good overall. The looks on stage are killer! The weak point (again) are the pickups and possibly the tuners, but those are easy upgrades. Considering the cost of the guitar, I would not hesitate to spend a few hundred on upgrades. Overall, great offering by Harley Benton. Just need to get some wood filler and gloss enamel paint to repair the glaring defect.

I found the HB-20BK a great guitar
1 old hound dog, 12.03.2019
I really like this guitar, it did take me a bit longer than normal to get the strings down and get the Intonation set properly, for the price it's a very nice guitar and looks great as well, no flaws in it. Neck is a bit thicker than i expected. I like it alot!
