So Good
Petersongs, 13.01.2021
I retired two years ago after 56 years as a pro guitar player. I sold the Strat, the latest in a long line of Fenders, Gibsons, and PRS. I lost the desire to play, and only rarely touched the B team guitars I had left.
I then found out Harley Benton was Thomanns own brand of guitars. I had bought from Thomanns before, and was always pleased with the products, and service. I could not believe the choice, and value, and started looking at Youtube Videos about the guitars. I was drawn to the Fusion 11 HSH in blue, with the roasted neck. I had to wait a few weeks for it, but boy was it worth it. I can not fault it. It looks fabulous, the variety of tones from the 3 pickups is amazing. A big help has been videos by Max Solo Music, ( unbelievably detailed reviews ), and Jonathan Koh, ( beautiful guitar player, and really helpful ). I now have the guitar bug again, and am enjoying playing.
Some reviewers have felt it necessary to improve the pickups. Maybe if I was still pro, I would go down that route, but for my present day needs, it is perfect.
Having taken advice from Thomanns guitar gurus, I have altered the trem to make it more fluid. This has meant adjusting the action. It is now really low, as I like it, without any fret noise. No other guitar I have owned has been so silky to play. With the right adjustments, I think this guitar could be made to suit most players.
I bought my first Strat in 1962. ( wish I still had it ), and have owned dozens of quality guitars. If Harley Benton guitars had been around during that time, I would have saved a lot of money. I am now making a list of future purchases. As I am 75, I suppose I had better get a move on.

My new workhorse for both stage and studio!
John Of Valor, 05.12.2020
Before the COVID-19 Pandemic hit world wide I would spend a good chunk of the last few years on the road touring, USA, Canada and Europe, as lead guitarist and backing band leader for Canadian legend THOR and wow do I wish I had this guitar with me then!

Once Touring is safe again this will be my main guitar to take on the road.

I also found this to be a great guitar for studio work as well.

I used this guitar exclusively for tracking the traditional metal songs I contributed to the upcoming THOR album and I had no problem getting good high gain classic metal tones from this guitar,

But this instrument is far from a one trick pony, I was able to take this into a session for a ballad and run clean the entire time and the Roswell pickups delivered.

Pros: High end features such as Stainless Steel Frets, Locking Tuners, Roasted Maple neck, and vast switching options at an unbeatable price.

Cons: Pickups may not be for everyone. some may prefer real flame top instead of veneer.

Guitars with similar features will cost at least twice as much.

Harley Benton really delivered the goods!

отличная гитара за с&#1074
Антон &#10, 30.06.2020
Гитара отлично смотрится, очень приятный на ощупь и удобный гриф. На удивление неплохо звучит даже со штатными датчиками, несколько вариантов звука из девяти имеющихся - очень хороши. Откровенно не понравился только звук на одном среднем сингле.
Из недостатков: средний сингл явно не подходит по размеру, рассчитан на более широко расставленные струны. В результате нижние струны находятся более-менее ровно над магнитами, а первая и вторая "зацепляют" свои магниты лишь у самого края. Пятипозиционный переключатель какой-то невнятный, потенциометры слегка шуршат (чисто механически). Есть недостатки по сборке: гнездо джека пытались прикрутить на искривлённую боковую грань не подгибая, в результате один из саморезов провернули, и он плохо держится. То же самое с одним из саморезов на крышке темброблока. На лицевой стороне деки в лаке три малозаметных пузыря (видны под определённым углом, в глаза не бросаются). Экранировка сделана только в полости темброблока и в гнездах датчиков, полость тремоло и пружин неэкранирована. В результате - дополнительный фон около источников помех. Гитара пришла неотстроенная по мензуре, причём для настройки шестой струны пришлось сдвинуть ползунок в самое крайнее положение, при котором винтом фиксации поджимается струна. Так что заменить струну без откручивания этого винта будет невозможно.
В общем, кто ожидает чуда (безупречного качества) за эти деньги, может разочароваться. Но мне гитара понравилась, как тренировочный инструмент - самое то. За эту цену ничего лучше я не нашёл.

After 15 years, I found my favorite
Nobuyuuki, 04.06.2021
First impression:
Just had to turn the truss rod a bit but it played wonderfully!
I play a lot of rock but it's worked amazingly for my jazz tones.

Pros:
-Decently weighted, heavier than you'd think but it feels right to me
-Tonal variety is tremendous, coil split on the humbuckers is amazing
-Very comfy to get to higher frets
-I'm just in love with the neck, the wood, the way it feels, amazing

Cons:
-The veneer finish is pretty flat, not an issue for me but could be for others
-This specific Wilkinson bridge, very tedious to adjust action if you're doing it yourself, but it stays in tune well enough
-The bridge humbucker, it is so strong in the bass frequencies so metal players are going to require an EQ pedal before going into an amp. It's a fine pedal for other genres but for heavier stuff, it gets so muddy.
-There were some obvious blemishes filled in with wood filler on the neck but they were in places that most people don't see anyway

Final thoughts:
I found the guitar for me. I'll change the bridge humbucker in the future but this guitar quickly became my favorite!
