I can't believe this guitar costs as little as it does.
Kev Smith, 17.10.2019
Received the guitar last night. And wow!
Firstly, big thanks to Thomann, as aside from needing a tune the guitar came set up correctly out of the box. Action was perfect and no intonation issues whatsoever.
Quality wise, the guitar is superb and the finish is sublime. One very small imperfection on the finish of the neck near between the 11th and 12th fret, but I only noticed it because I was scrutinising the guitar very closely!
It plays beautifully and sounds fantastic. The pickups give a lovely clear, rich sounds. I didn't detect any muddiness in tone at all.
If I had one minor complaint, it would be that the pickup selector switch feels a little bit flimsier than I would like it to be.
However, this is a sub-£100 guitar we're talking about and I don't want to give Thomann thought about raising their frankly excellent prices, but you could pay considerably more than that and still think this guitar was excellent value.
I'm not a gigging musician, so this will be used for recording at home and will be perfect for the job, although if I was still gigging I'd be more than happy to use this guitar on stage.
Bravo Thomann, you've got a very happy customer here and I will definitely be looking at Harley Bentons first the next time I want to add to my collection.

Ok, but there are some drawbacks.
Michail Pudovkin, 02.05.2021
This is my first electric guitar and I have nothing to compare with. I've heard a lot about the quality of harley benton. But I have never in my life held a very bad or very good electric guitar. Therefore, I cannot compare quality, only emotions.
Well, the sound is very good, warm and fat, a little lacking in highs, but either I could not tune the combo amplifier, or this sound happens only on stratocaster. Of the minuses, the edges of the lining are slightly erased in the region of 20-24 frets. The still open 6 string rings with a large attack.
I like the sound because of, but it's hard for me to evaluate, since I did not play electric guitar, only bass guitars.
What is important to say! I sit down to play this guitar and play for 2-3 hours without feeling this time at all!

Great deal for the price
AlFos, 07.12.2020
It's the cheapest version of sg-style guitar, but it sounds really good. Good choice for the first guitar or for home playing.

Firstly, what's bad:
Electronics not shielded, so you will have noise, when not playing. Wire connections made poorly, but works OK. Pickup selector switch is very cheap, mine was broken(only worked in neck and middle position), but Thomann sent me new switch. Potentiometer knobs are good, but looks not very cool, can be easily changed to something more suitable.
Now, good things:
Sound is a lot better, than what you can expect from this price category. Especially when you change the strings. Neck and bridge are already tuned. Guitar is lightweight, but feels solid. Looks great.

Great beginner guitar, but will need setup first
S4tyr, 16.02.2020
I've owned this guitar for a few months now, this being my first guitar, and I am impressed by how much guitar you're getting at this price.

Since the pickups have a high output, my Blackstar Fly 3 practice amp has no issues producing high gain sounds on the overdrive channel. The pickups are cheap, as expected for the price, so don't expect any amazing sound from it. It sounds harsh when playing clean, but sounds okay with high gain distortion.

The hardware on the guitar will need replacing if you are planning on using thicker strings, as I am using 56-13 gauge currently. I've upgraded to locking tuners because the original tuners are not good for anything else but E Standard. I've also changed the bridge to a roller bridge because the original bridge was very difficult to adjust, which now means my guitar's intonation is good now.

If you're not keen on upgrading, at least get the action sorted out. It will make playing this guitar a lot easier.

Once properly set up, it is a great guitar for the price.
