Best metal guitar in this price range by far
Kamradt 12.05.2022
I was looking for a long time for a stealth-looking, modern, Super ST metal guitar and this has it all. 10/10 looks and the inverted headstock are the cherry on top, makes it stand out and feels more premium.
The specs are great, absolutely zero sharp frets and the pickups are quite warm and not so hot. This is probably the first guitar that I feel comfortable soloing with the bridge pickup. Also, the neck pickup doesn't sound so 'nasal' like they usually do.
My only remark is regarding the bridge.
Ideally, I would have preferred a non fixed bridge of any kind, quite possibly a Floyd, but perhaps the price would have gone up quite a bit. My bridge came a bit damage, with very tiny scratches on the paint, but it is the kinda thing that only I will ever notice and it doesn't affect the looks or playability.
In short, I'm extremely happy with it and would definitely buy again.


Can't get anything better for this price

- Only two strings weren't in tune and that was all the setup I had to do after unboxing.
- I can play for 2 hours and it's still in tune.
- The body paint job is perfect.
- The bridge is very comfortable to palm mute.
- The pickup selector is sooo smooth. It clicks into position and stay there, but it moves very smoothly.
- Very well weight balanced (I have another HB guitar that's very neck heavy, but this is perfectly aligned).

- The frets could have received a bit more care (they were a bit scratchy in the beginning), but after playing for a few days they're ok. But next time I changes strings, I'll 100% polish them. (no protruding frets though).

Overall, this is comparable to guitars that cost more than twice and looks like the best Harley Benton until now, to the point I'd consider getting the T version of it too.


The best Harley Benton guitar available right now
Metallex 17.05.2022
I've tried my share of metal super-Strats this year. Solar A1.6, Charvel DK24, and a couple of others. This guitar has them bang to rights.

Features you'd expect on a guitar double the price, it feels so good to play, sounds absolutely MONSTROUS, and looks the part. The only thing I could really be picky about is that it needs a bit of a setup out the box.

This is THE Fusion to buy if you're going to get one.


Great guitar.. after a little work

Considering all this guitar has to offer, purchasing it seemed like a no brainer to me. I haven't seen a bad review yet, and the price is unbelievable.

Honestly, I would say my only complaints would be in the QC department. I realize in this price range there are some things (like fret polishing) that will be sacrificed, but things like misaligned tuning keys, pickups that cannot be adjusted, and loose volume knobs should be caught by QC.
All in all I spent less than 2 hours fixing minor issues and making this one of my favorite guitars. With 9-42 gauged string and a little truss rod adjusting, I have the action at 1mm on the high E and 1.5mm on the low E and not a bit of fret buzz. Oh, and I can't thank Thomann enough for lightening fast shipping!
