The spirit of the original Junior returns!!
Robert Peterson, 10.07.2021
Gibson originally created the Junior to be a "student guitar"...meaning a decent quality, affordable guitar. But since then Gibson cares more about milking people for their money than actually honoring why they made this instrument in the first place.
Harley Benton brings back the original spirit of the Junior guitar: meaning a decent quality, affordable instrument. Bravo Harley Benton, as this guitar is well built, plays so comfortably and has a great sound. The gorgeous colour scheme of sky blue and white trimmings give this guitar a unique appearance.

Not flawless, but very nice rockroll guitar
Rocknsad, 29.03.2021
Hi,

This guitar punches above it's priceclass. The neck is smooth and fretwork more than capable.

You can't get the action down at shredders lever, but setting is at 1.8 mm (12th fret, thick E string) is easily doable , but can't see it getting lower... It did need a setup tho... As all bentons kinda do in my opinion... I needed to lower the bridge, but there was also to much relief in the neck.

pro's:
-Feels at least like a epiphone level quality guitar
-Sounds rocknroll.. Has very nice and usable clean sound... Has a lot of grit with gain. I even use it for metal stuff.

Cons:
-For mine , there were some paint flaws (Black dots in the back of the neck above the blue paint) .
-The tone pot is really "wobly" if you turn it. It's like there is something that needs no be tightened inside , but I can't find it (It's not the hex screw)
- The tone pot knob also gets off really easy by accident if i'm trying to coilsplit.
-For some reason, my "thicker" sound gives a little more hum, or noises, that the split sound... But still very usable and not that bad.

All in all, despite the "cons" list, I like it very much, it's got that "something special" guitar that sets it apart from a strat, Lp, Sg, Tele , ... Even for being a doublecut, it is original because it has some fenderish style colors, but plays more like a gibson... So it's something different :)

HB Dc_junior Fat Benton Blue
Heinz Meinrat, 11.03.2021
Die Gitarre kam zügig bei mir an ,Gut verpackt und makellos.Es ist nicht meine erste Gitarre von HB aber sie ist derart perfekt das glaubt man nicht ich habe nichts zu nörgeln ,auszutauschen ,Sie hat den fetten ,tollen Hals den ich wollte ,das Ebenholzriffbrett und die Bundierung sind wie bei einer Custom Shop Gitarre,und das Trussrodcover in weiss plastik mit HB drauf hat endlich nur eine Bohrung in der Kopfplatte - super ,wie auch die Tuner und die restliche Hardware .Der Roswell Tonabnehmer funktioniert mit Pushpull tone einwandfrei und klingt super .Die Wraparound Brücke finde ich mega gut.An Meiner Benton Blue wird absolut nix verändert die ist so wie sie ist - Perfekt.ich nutze das Instrument privat

Ich war wirklich überrascht
Patrice aus B., 15.06.2021
Ich habe die Begeisterung auf YouTube jetzt schon ein paar Jahre verfolgt und die absolut ungefilterten Reviews von EytschPi41 wirklich genossen und mich endlich dazu entschlossen einer HB Gitarre eine Chance zu geben.

Ich wollte schon lange eine DC Jr. Style Gitarre haben, aber nicht einen Haufen Geld ausgeben und auch keine Risikos beim Secoundhandkauf eingehen.
Auftritt die DC Junior in Benton Blue. Ich war sofort verliebt in die absolut geile Farbe und als ich in den Specs gesehen habe das die Gitarre einen 59 Style Hals hat war der Kauf beschlossen, ich bin nämlich dank meiner Gibson R8 ein Fan von dickeren Hälsen.

Die Verarbeitung hat mich begeistert, keine Probleme, Bünde super abgerichtet, Feeling top und auch der Push/Pull Pot ist eine coole Idee, auch wenn ich ihn eigentlich nicht bräuchte.

Mein Resümee:
Die Gitarre lohnt sich absolut und kann es locker mit einer Epiphone aufnehmen.
Wenn also eine Gitarre gesucht wir um Songs im Style von Green Day, Bad Religion oder Social Distortion zu spielen sucht nicht weiter und gönnt euch diese geile Junior für den schmalen Geldbeutel.
