Decorative all-rounder

With this high-quality guitar equipped with two splittable humbuckers, you will be prepared for any scenario. The ergonomically designed body made of mahogany-like nyatoh with a black high-gloss top finish is bolted to the maple neck in the truly traditional way. In addition, the ebony fingerboard with a 305mm radius ensures a snappy sound. To sum it up, tasteful looks, high flexibility, and tried-and-tested branded hardware and electronics come together here to create an affordable instrument that is suitable for a variety of genres.

Variety and aesthetics

The Fusion-III HH EB is a real eye-catcher. The body is made of nyatoh with a top in a classic black high-gloss finish, creating a decorative appearance. A four-screw neck joint secures the maple neck to the body. This instrument is very comfortable to play thanks to its nut width of 42mm and its modern C neck profile. The fingerboard with 22 wear-free jumbo stainless steel frets is also more than an off-the-rack product, just like the WSC staggered locking diecast machine heads, the Nu-Bone nut, and the Wilkinson 50II two-point vibrato. The electronics comprise two AlNiCo-5 humbuckers made by Roswell, which are complemented by a three-way switch as well as potentiometers for volume and tone. The latter allows the humbuckers to be split via a push-pull function, thus also making single-coil sounds possible, and the jack socket is ergonomically recessed into the side of the body.

Sounds to suit any style

The Fusion-III HH EB Black Pro is extremely flexible in terms of sound thanks to its two pickups, three-way selector switch, and the option of splitting the humbuckers. AlNiCo magnets also provide a vintage-style touch to the sound - from Blues to Hard Rock and Pop to Funk. Depending on the particular song and song part, you can vary the timbre and the degree of distortion. Locking machines heads ensure reliable tuning, while the stainless steel frets are characterised by minimal wear - so the instrument will last for many years. With a scale length of 648mm, 22 jumbo frets, and a comfortable C profile for the neck, this guitar relies on a tried and tested design. In combination with the contoured body with its double cutaway, excellent playability is a given.

One guitar for the whole live set

The Fusion-III HH EB is well prepared for any situation. The traditional Wilkinson 50II two-point vibrato system offers a familiar flat profile, and the classic but also striking looks further ehnance the visual appeal of this special instrument. The straightforward combination of two splittable humbuckers allows for an extremely high level of sonic flexibility, so that changing your instrument for the sake of sound during the show should be unnecessary. Such a stylish guitar is particularly nice to have live on stage.

Wonderful budget guitar but required a little work to set up
Jeltohn 17.10.2021
I bought this guitar a few months ago. And I am very happy with my purchase in general.

It is a beautiful guitar, with a gorgeous finish, especially the deep red wood on the back.
The cutouts in the back panel make for easy adjustments of the springs of the floating bridge. Same goes for replacing strings.
The controles feel very solid and have a great feel to them. The pickup switch and split coil knob feel snappy And the knobs have a nice smooth resistance to them. They won't move unless intended.
I haven't encountered a single sharp edge on the frets and feels wonderful to play.

Sound is something very subjective. All I can say is that I enjoy the tone of this guitar. I only have good things to say about this.

However there are a few things I encountered that should be noted but certainly should not take away from the joy I had playing this guitar.

- The strings: The strings that come with this guitar are okay at best. They have a good tone but are stiff and corroded very fast. I recommend replacing them fairly quickly.

-The bottom strap button came loose very early on. Luckily it didn't drop on me while playing. Nothing some basic tools couldn't fix...

-The setup: I recommend learning how to set up your guitar to your liking. Out of the box, this one was very uncomfortable to play, with a very high action, badly intonated and a not so ideal truss rod setting.
I don't blame Harley Benton for this. It just happens due to environmental factors and shipping. They do however include the tools to fix all of these issues yourself.

With a few adjustments, I couldn't wish for a better guitar at this price range. I recommend it to anyone who won't shy away from putting in a little time to adjust it to their preferences.
Congratulations to Harley Benton for making this wonderful instrument.

Excellent guitar, versatile clean sound
GeryM 29.09.2021
I really wanted a nice looking, well sounding, well-equipped guitar as my beginner electric guitar.

I've seen and tested many other electric guitars in this price range and beyond, but this really exceeded my expectations.

It came with a perfect finish, craftsmanship, setup and sound - right out of the box.

The versatility of the single coils and humbuckers with the push pull know is great and the sound is really different. It's excellent!

It's a real beauty! I find huge pleasure playing and learning on it.
Highly recommended for this price and beyond.

Tremendously easy to play - perfect setup- great resonance - stays in tune with Trem- lots of tonal options……

Absolutely kills my last fender custom shop— not even close……

Absolutely recommend— professional quality gigging guitar for the cost of a fender / Gibson case …
