Excellent Value for money
IbbyG, 23.11.2019
My first experience with Harley Benton, I am positively impressed. Finishing and attention to detail rivals guitars at double, triple, quadruple price point (Epiphone, Gibson, Ovation, Ibanez and Fender). Plays very nicely. Pickups really impressive. Played it with Marshall Code 100H and 412 cab. Awesome rich sound.
Good quality case. Almost as good as the Ovation case with my double neck.
Cons
- no separate vol and tone controls for 12 and 6 strings.
- a common challenge with all double necks; space tight between the two head stocks makes it difficult to use my Roadie 1 or Roadie 2 auto tuners.

I must thank all the reviews on YouTube.

22 January 2020 Update
Having played this awesome unique instrument for quite sometime, I have the following observations:
- though easy to tune, the 12 string G strings seem to be quite impossible to tune; either they are in tune when open, or at the 12 fret but not both.
- Of all the 14 guitars I own, the neck on both 12 and 6 strings easily twists, affecting the tuning - I have to be careful when playing to avoid this.
Again, excellent value for money, and one of my favorite instruments of choice

Harley Benson & Thomann
Long Earth Neil, 03.05.2017
What can I say - awesome start to finish!
Starting with Thomann, order placed and 5 days later (with a holiday weekend in between) guitar was delivered to UK. Not only that but the communications and order tracking was second to none! Highly recommended!

OK, the Harley Benton DC-Custom 612... I was skeptical about Harley Benton being cut price copies but, YouTube research and chats with friends who own put my mind at rest. This is one truly beautiful guitar both in looks and sounds. Looks, a beautiful well finished cherry glaze on a solid mahogany body & neck, quality pups and hardware. In terms of sound, everything you'd expect from a Gibbo but at a tenth of the price! The 12 string is crisp, clear and jangly and the 6 string equally so but gutsy as hell when you kick in an overdrive amp setting!
The one downside, stating the bleeding obvious, this is one hell of a head / neck heavy guitar. Well duh, it's got two necks! This is not a negative, just need to adjust your playing style a bit to hold the neck up - or rest it on your knee for a VERY comfortable play. Overall, for the chunk of wood and hardware, it's surprisingly light.
Final thing, it comes with a custom hard case which, in itself, would be worth £60 - £100 to buy.
Any doubters should give this, or Harley Benton in general, a real chance - a LOT of instrument for your cash!
