SURPRISING!!!!
ROCKIN' ROTHBE, 04.07.2020
I own several guitars . Vintage and new. The American BIG 3 and (replica) models. I have to say, the HB DC- 580 CH will take it's place, on the GO - TO rack, among the Fender, Gibson , and Electra group. This guitar has a basswood body Canadian maple neck ,the humbuckers are good, good tuners, solid smooth feel. Granted, the electronics and hardware are probably not top of the line, but , they do the job , pretty well. I gigged with it the first week I got it. No one in the band could believe it. They were surprised, with the sound .I used it, to play all 4 sets. The rhythm player says, "he's gonna buy one, now". This is a well made, tight and together guitar. looks good, plays good, and sounds good. This would also make fantastic guitar, for someone to mod. with their own aftermarket parts, if desired. But , as is, it's a great guitar. Mine came, action set up, bridge, neck set up and frets finished, For the price, I don't think you can find another guitar that plays, looks, and sounds, as good as this Harley Benton, for the price. I also think you would pay 2 to 3 times, or maybe 4 to 5 times as much,
for one of its quality. I have another "import guitars", that I purchased new in 1978, (SLM Electra, very good guitar), and I payed , twice as much, then,( in 1978), as I did for this guitar. I will say, I think , they are, very closely comparable. Shipping may take a little longer than usual,(about 6 weeks for mine), had to wait for it to be back in stock. But it's worth it. Every guitar player should own, at least one Harley Benton. I have ordered three more.

Amazing instrument for that price
MBL69, 05.03.2020
I use this guitar about two months for home practising and as a beginner I'm satisfied with the sound and with the overall quality of the product, honestly if I would want to be really very picky then I'd find few tiny cosmetics details. The instrument was delivered adjusted and almost in tune, it needed just some small adjustment of tuning in octaves. From beginer's point of view it's amazing for that price.

Great guitar with a few flaws
sdotldot, 16.03.2021
I had this guitar shipped half way across the world so of course there would be some guitar set up required. I did not dock quality stars for that.

The sound of the pickups are okay. It's not the loudest or clearest pickups. They are very mid heavy, it's like your amp is behind a closed door in another room. It's warm but not clear sounding.

The guitar cavities for the electronics and pickups are not shielded but that's okay as it's a very quiet guitar. It doesn't appear to pick up any hum.

Overall, very nice guitar! Low action (after setup due to world wide shipping and different humidity/temperature conditions), nice finish (with the exception of some areas where it appears the finish was thinly applied or perhaps missed), all the frets reachable including the 24th frets and it seems to have very good tuning stability!

I am comparing this guitar to a Epiphone SG Muse which is about 3 times the price. The Epiphone has nicer sounding pickups and cosmetics(no paint flaws). Surprisingly, the action is about the same height between the two. The DC-580 has a flatter fretboard so it makes playing the fast stuff a bit easier. I would buy this guitar again, a different set of electronics, a small practice amp and still have more money in my pocket then if I got another muse.

Stop Nit Picking Guys
Beatle Boy, 18.01.2020
We All Know that Pickups, Strings Machine Heads Knobs ETC. Can be improved so Go And Spend 3 Grand Then. and there will be something you don't like on that one as well. Trust me I know , That's the way Guitars are, we are all different people with different Tastes in things. some people like low action others High, some people like a chunky neck, others don't, All im saying is for the money guys you cant beat it. If you have a few skills in setting a guitar up then theres no problem ive been playing guitar for 40 years. I Bought this for Home use Only In My Studio and was very impressed. Straight out of the box the Action was very good, But I did tweak it a little as I like really Low Action. Id like to see a Smaller Neck some Day on these Guitars about a 40mm Nut with a Softer C Shape profile ( That's just my preference ) The Quality of the build of the guitar was Insanely Fantastic Overall for me Just Fantastic value for the money.
