The all-rounder

With this high-quality guitar equipped with two splittable humbuckers (HH), you will be prepared for any scenario. The ergonomically designed body made of mahogany-like nyatoh with a high-gloss "Ice Blue" finish is bolted to the roasted flamed maple neck in a truly traditional way. In addition, the fingerboard with a radius of 305mm is also made of roasted flamed maple, ensuring 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 HT Roasted IB model is a real eye-catcher. The nyatoh body comes with a high-gloss "Ice Blue" finish, and the roasted bolt-on neck is made of Canadian flamed maple. This instrument is very comfortable to play thanks to its nut width of 42mm and its modern C neck profile. The roasted ebony fingerboard with 24 wear-free jumbo stainless steel frets is also more than an off-the-rack product. In addition, the guitar features a TUSQ nut, a WSC Hipshot-style HT bridge, and WSC staggered locking diecast machine heads. The electronics comprise two AlNiCo-5 vintage-style 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.

For beginners and smart spenders

The Fusion-III HH HT Roasted IB is an affordable guitar that stands out from the crowd thanks to its numerous attractive and practical features. The roasted flamed maple neck alone is something rarely seen at this price point. As if that wasn't enough, the locking machine heads provide reliable tuning, while the stainless steel frets are characterised by minimal wear - so this instrument will be with you for the long haul. Thanks to the three-way switch and two splittable humbuckers, the guitar is extremely flexible in terms of sound and is able to cover many genres. This guitar is recommended for beginners who want to start with a high-quality instrument that will keep them happy in the long run, but smart spenders who want a particularly elegant and tonally flexible instrument at a budget-friendly price will also find what they are looking for here.

Sounds to suit any style

The Harley Benton Fusion-III HH HT Roasted IB is prepared for every situation. The tone potentiometer allows the humbuckers to be split, thus also making single-coil sounds possible. Otherwise, the humbuckers provide the finest full-throttle Rock sound. The AlNiCo magnets of the humbuckers also add a vintage touch to the sound - from Blues to Metal and from Pop to Funk, no problem at all for the Fusion-III. Depending on the song and song part, you can vary the timbre and the degree of distortion to suit the mood, so changing your instrument for the sake of sound should be unnecessary on stage.

In the spotlight

Not bad
Ali Zhas 10.04.2022
Let's start with the good. The sound of the pickups rose quite good, not too exhaustive but not too vintage either. Sounds good on my vox vx gt15. The neck is amazing, it's a very nice matte standard profile neck. COLOR NOT MATTE! THE GUITAR HAS COME IN A GLOSSY DARK BLUE COLOR! However, she still looks good. The position switch is strong enough, there are no problems with painting. The frets were not scratched, the factory setting is very good.
Now for the cons.
There is a small indentation on the lining, which does not affect anything, but is unpleasant. The frets are set a little crooked and you can see the wood, but I must say that nothing is scratched, and I do not care. The hole for the anchor is made 4/5, the tree sticks out, and it is also clear that the second was done carelessly. The sensors were originally lowered as low as possible, strange. (I forgot to say, the bridge does not scratch the hand, very comfortable) There is a small piece of dried blue paint on the fingerboard,


Amazing guitar
Bobr_Dobr 16.12.2021
This is my first Harley Benton and I'm really surprised.
The guitar are really solid and feels much more expensive than it really is. Sounds and responses great. Pickups are good and versatile.
The most exciting thing, personally for me, is really comfortable neck (profile, quality, finish). It suits for me and my hand really well.

I have some other guitars from famous brands, but this one is easily one of my favorites.

Conclusion: unbelievable value for the price

P.S. Please make a HSS version of fusion with fixed bridge and I'll get it.

Il n'y a pas besoin de faire un long discours ; a ce prix, c'est une affaire. Juste les frettes a polir pour plus de confort de jeu mais tout est absolument nickel. J'adore la différence singulière qu'il y a entre single coil et humbucker, la couleur est originale et le manche est beau. Franchement, je n'ai rien a redire sur cette guitare.

Comme d'habitude colis arrivé en bon état et, quelle belle pelle. Alors bien sur, on nourrit le manche, on polit les frettes ( mais rien de bien méchant), on change les cordes (9-46), et on branche...micros puissants et assez clairs, réglage de l'intonation sur la 6 et la 4, mais là aussi pas grand chose, manche agréable, juste le potard de volume pas très progressif. Bref, super gratte que je recommande sans soucis. Pour l'anecdote, j'ai osé cette commande après avoir acheté plusieurs produits HB, dont une ST 20 HSS sur laquelle j'ai changé les mécaniques pour des bloquantes de la marque, sillet, pontets, blindée (soit un investissement total d'environ 150 €) et avec le système sans fil HB, l'ampli 10w HB pour la maison, ce matos remplit son rôle. Ça va faire jaser mais je possède une Lag Imperator 100 et une Fender Telecaster et ces deux HB n'ont plus grand chose à leur envier. Les micros de la ST 20 seront remplacés, mais ceux de la Fusion y'a pas urgence. Bref, foncez, rapport qualité-prix imbattable...et pas que sur la guitare.
