Первое впечатление
???_02.02.63, 15.05.2021
Сегодня получил заказанную гитару HB Fusion II. Сразу оговорюсь - мне довелось поиграть не на многих моделях гитар (4-5), причем все- из моей молодости (1980-90е). Тогда я был не придирчив и у меня были минимальные требования к инструменту. Но сейчас я кое-что почитал, послушал в Сети, и мое представление и требования заметно расширились...
Итак. Без воды. Я не придирчив к внешнему виду и мелкие пятнышки и царапинки не искал - мне играть, а не на выставку. В целом, вид приятный, можно было бы несколько потемнее, но это дело вкуса.
Единственный серьезный упрек к внешнему виду - не закрытые крышками звукосниматели (широкие пазы в корпусе вокруг них, не прикрытые ничем выглядят не лучшим образом).
Колки - удобные, без люфтов, держат строй хорошо. Разовые энергичные движения ручкой тремоло строй не нарушают. Мензура из коробки вполне настроена. Высота струн - для меня чуть высоковата, но вполне можно играть без существенного напряжения.
Гриф удобный для меня, прекрасно обработана поверхность, держать приятно. Лады - когда играл первый час, за края нигде не цеплялся - и хорошо. Не рассматривал специально, т.к. при необходимости подровнять можно всегда легко. Лады не полированные и первые 10-15 мин бендинг вызывал на ладах скрип. Но за час игры все прошло. При необходимости можно и специально полировать.
Главное - звук. Играл через комбик HB Tube15 (он мне очень понравился по звуку с самого начала после приобретения). Действительно, как и обещали в Сети, все 5 положений переключателя звукоснимателей дают, на мой взгляд, хорошие и отличающиеся тембры. Причем, в положениях переключателя хамбакеров обычный/отсечка тембр заметно менялся, и оба варианта звучали хорошо - именно, как хамбакеры, и как синглы (нюансы отличий от настоящих синглов - на совести педантов). Регулятор тембра работал плавно и в широком диапазоне менял тембр (заваливал высокие частоты). Это порадовало - играл на гитарах, на которых полный оборот такого регулятора едва менял тембр. Зачем тогда такой нужен?!
ИТОГ: в целом, инструмент порадовал, на первый взгляд, и звучанием, и видом. Сомнения покупки вслепую (поиграть на нем перед покупкой у меня не было возможности) рассеялись, я доволен. И поверю предыдущим покупателям, что соотношение цена/качество весьма хорошее.
Процедура приобретения и доставки у THOMANN четко отработана и никаких нареканий не вызвала. Спасибо и HARLEY BENTON за хороший инструмент (не только симпатичный внешне, которых сейчас стало очень много), и THOMANN за четкую торговлю. )

This very quickly became My Go To Guitar
Steve Cass, 20.11.2020
I am 58, have been playing Guitar since I was about 10, and have been a full time professional Guitar Tutor since 2003.

I have a lovely collection of guitars from most of the better known brands including some that retail at £2,000.00 and more.

One of my Students has become a bit of a Harley Benton collector having purchased several different models. The first thing that a lot of students do when buying a new guitar is immediately hand it to me as they arrive for a lesson and ask me what I think? - I was so impressed with the quality, finish, sound, playability and value for money, that I had to try a Harley Benton Guitar for myself and spend more time with it than the few minutes with a student's guitar.

With no wish to sound arrogant in any way, I thought I'd go for the highest price Harley Benton of the type that I wanted to try. - At the end of the day, compared with the price of some of my other guitars, if I was disappointed, it wouldn't be the end of the day. - I'd have a spare that I could lend to first timers that haven't bough a guitar yet.
I'd always fancied an HSH guitar but never had one, so it made sense to go for the Fusion-II HSH.

I have now had this guitar for 4 months and waited until now to post a review, although I don't know why, I've waited. - Wow, what can I say, it has lived up to what I hoped having tried my Student's Harley Bentons. - This has become my 'go to' guitar. - Right out of the box, it needed no adjusting. - The set up was great.

As you can imagine, as a teacher, I cover all styles and this guitar does a very good job for every style. - No more swapping guitars. -

I have to admit to being a bit lazy. - In the past, if I've broken a string, I've just taken another guitar off the stand, and the broken string may have gone weeks without being replaced. - I love this guitar so much, that on the one occasion that I've broken a string since owning it, the string was replaced immediately.

I haven't gone into neck profile etc. as this is personal thing. - Suffice to say, I love it. It's very comfortable. - The 'Strat' body style is also very comfortable. -

I've seen reviews of these where some people haven't liked the pick ups and some people have changed the pick ups. - I like the pick ups and can see no reason to change them. - Again, I am comparing with better name brands. - This is a very versatile guitar. Someone did some research to find the best combination of pick ups that work best on this guitar within the build budget. - I think they've done an excellent job.

A quick check before ending this review and I see that Thomann ask that reviewers mention the cons as well as the pros. - I honestly cannot think of a con! - There is nothing that I do not like about this guitar, other than that there wasn't a buy one, get one free offer when I bought it!

What more can I say?

A superb guitar at an amazing price
StevieMR, 25.03.2019
In July 2018 I bought one of the original first generation models of the Fusion Pro, with natural finish, roasted maple neck and Wilkinson tremolo. Due to the string retainer bar fitted behind the nut it was a tuning nightmare! I returned the guitar because it would not play or stay in tune. I gave this guitar 1 star in my review on this site and made some suggestions with regards to improving the design of the guitar. Thomann appear to have listened and very positively responded to mine and other customers design comments and potential improvements. Gone is the string retainer bar replaced by locking machine heads and a string roller tree and the guitar plays and stays in tune perfectly , including when using the tremolo arm extensively. The guitar looks stunning with a beautiful flamed Bengal maple top and roasted maple neck. The neck profile is said to be a modern C shape, however there is definitely more 'wood in your hand' than on my HH Fusion Pro I model which is said to have the same neck profile. I would describe the neck profile to be more of a 'soft V' or even 'D' profile. Either way it is incredibly comfortable and playable.

Sound wise, the Roswell pickups are okay but they don't deliver the claririty, depth or warmth I need for the studio, so I got Alan Dingwall a legendary pickup builder here in the North east of England to replace the Roswell pickups with 3 of his own pickups (HSH configuration). These now make the guitar into a 'tone monster', that not only sounds better but also plays and looks better than guitars that cost £2000 - £3000 more.

In summary, this is a brilliant guitar at a great price, like the other two Harley Benton guitars I own it required a little bit of a set up when it came out of the box. This can be done with minimal maintenance knowledge or with You tube demo's.
Highly recommended , and a 'tip of the hat' here to Thomann / Harley Benton who listened to customers and responded by correcting design faults on the original non-locking trem Fusion Pro's, resulting in a fantastic guitar! Well done Harley Benton / Thomann.

A beautiful guitar...no more no less.
JonathanKoh, 26.04.2019
This is my 2nd fusion pro Maple neck purchase even though I bought this on behalf of a good friend of mine.
The guitar was delivered in great condition and well setup! With a couple of slight tweaks, it was up and playing.
The flame on the roasted maple neck are a bit different from the 1st version but still nice. The neck and frets felt the same as my previous guitar.
Alas, the pickups were not improved. They are ok but a bit too thin to my liking. You would have to tweak a bit on your eq to get a workable sound.
The floating tremolo bridge works like a dream and very responsive just like the earlier version.
ANd yes! The retainer bar is out ..now they have staggered tuners with no string trees! All good as the guitar will stay in tune more without more metal obstacles. hahah
Overall, a great purchase! They did this one right this time round!
This guitar was reviewed on my video "Harley Benton Fusion II HSH Roasted FBB Unboxing and Review" @ my youtube channel
