All-around PERFECT guitar...!
Dimitris Floropoulos, 07.11.2020
I have played through many guitars, but this is by far the best...And i say this having played with a 800$ Les Paul, and a 650$ Ibanez...

1) Exterior Design: Ok this guitar is a copy of a Gibson SG model, costing aroud 5000$, and i have to admit that its look is astonishing...Those golden Roswell pickups along with that vintage ivory body, give awesome vibes...The neck is just a typical C-type, very easy to handle, and the fretboard is as smooth as it needs to be (no sharp fret ends).

2)Sound: Ok, WOW....At the moment, i have a low tier amplifier, but i managed to record some incredible riffs at a really good quality. The E A D strings sound like melted gold, and the guitars offers a bassy sound by its nature, while having 3 H pickups lets you experiment with a plethora sounding options.

3) Delivery: Ok, to be honest i waited a while for this guitar, exactly a month. I ordered it at 5/10 and it was supposed to be here until 26/10, because it was out of stock. That last date was also postponed, and the guitar was on stock at 31/10, when the shipment started. It was delivered just 6 days later, wich was surprisingly early, given that im from greece, with absolutely zero problems.

4)The only con: Ok, everything in this guitar was great, but a slight detail. The stock strings... When it arrived, this guitar had .10 Harley Benton strings. I started playing and my fingers became quickly metal-blackened, and also in the first slight bendind of the e string, the string broke...I had to go to my local guitar shop and change the strings to .9 D'addario. But trust me, IT WAS WORTH IT..!

5) OVERAL: This guitar is an underated gem. I can't help not seeing it in the top 100 sales rank. To be honest, i had put my eyes on it, since it started being on the catalogue (2015). If you are looking for a 1st guitar, or if you want to expand your collection, or even if you have the most expensive guitar in the world, YOU SHOULD TRY THIS GEM xD....Biggest recommendation in my entire life!

great fun
Mitja V., 19.04.2020
Great guitar. Roswell pickups are very close to originals vintage PAF but in a way different I even might say, i have no such pickups in my collection and are absolute must have. LAF neck is darker sounding, like jazz pickup but also very rich for blues, works excellent with distortion. Neck pickup is also very good. Fretboard is made of Pau Ferro. Its very nice wood, black like Ebony, but it's a soft wood, much softer than rosewood, so Fretboard is not glossy perhaps because Pau ferro is half as hard as jatoba. It's not bad but I am just saying it plays different whatever it means. Tuner are OK but I've installed Gibson G-force tuning system, which i have to change on my Gibson SG. It didn't work with Gibson, but works excellent with Harley's. Now I have realised that that's really amazing system, very handy and very easy to use and very reliable. The raster is not the same, so i had to have fill (glue) the existing holes and make new ones. I also installed split coil switch on tone pot. The middle pickup is alternate with bridge and neck and is for colouring. Its single coil, when others are humbuckers and vice versa. I've also installed out of phase switch, but it's not very useful. You also had to do some fret polish. In general very good guitar, made for customising. very nice build and a lot of fun working on it and than playing. If you are not a fan of customising you have to buy Harley Benton custom

Good quality but neck felt too thick
PriitP, 28.04.2021
Maybe I'm more critical because I have wanted SG for a long time and accidentally tried 2000€ Gibson new model while I had this Harley Benton DC-600 in home. I have one Harley Benton TE-30 and kept it. Pros: Overall quality for this price range is good. Coloured and finished nicely. It maybe looks abit more yellow than you see in pictures. It's made from real wood and you can't get any mahogany guitar in that price range for sure. Feels maybe little heavy compared to Gibson but this is around 10x more expensive. Pick ups sounds ok, noting special but fine.
Cons: Main cons was neck thickness for me. Nobody really talks about it but if you expect really thin neck from this its a little thicker because its c-shape. I realised I want thin D-shape. Also tuners felt abit loose, specially mine on 6th string.
I decided not keep it and save the money for real SG:)

A lot for a little
Elliot S., 12.06.2021
This guitar came out of the box in very good shape. It plays well, sounds quite good, looks great, and is very comfortable to play. Fantastic value. It would be a great guitar to take on the road.
