FLAWLESS GUITAR & FLAWLESS SERVICE
Axepete, 08.11.2020
The Fusion-T HH EB OCT is my 4th Harley Benton Guitar and the most impressive to date. All the guitars, however, have been wonderful purchases and are amongst my favourite instruments in my collection. The service from Thomann was, as always, exceptional, the guitar arriving at my door, in Nottinghamshire UK, in 4 days from Germany. It arrived in a box which had zero marks on it, so very well done to UPS. I was amazed when I unboxed it to find a completely flawless guitar which was, incredibly, bang in tune ( after such a long journey ! ) The action and intonation were perfect and upon close inspection the guitar is of as high a quality as any of the instruments I own ( including some expensive guitars ) I plugged it into my Bugera V22 Infinium amp and the tones from the Roswell pickups are delightful. Crystal clear. The volume and tone control working like a dream. The option of coil splitting makes this guitar remarkably versatile in its sonic capabilities. The Wilkinson trem is another excellent appointment, no problems with tuning stability ( the locking tuners and the graph tech tusq nut are quality and most likely contribute to this ) The ebony board and stainless steel frets on a beautiful maple neck make for a gorgeous playing experience. Anyone thinking of buying one of these guitars, from my experience, I would say do not hesitate, it is by far the very best £269 I have ever spent. Thank you to all at Thomann for the amazing quality of this guitar.

Much better than I expected
Brunkmann, 15.02.2021
I was extremely excited to purchase one of Harley Benton's step up guitars. Lots of great things for 300 dollars. The Plus side includes:
-Beautiful finish, the guitar is gorgeous and so well put together.
-Flawless finish, great paint job, not orange peel, scratches, or missed spots.
-Pretty good sound, I believe it needs a setup as it is a bit muddy, plenty of punch , but a bit muddy for my test.
-Locking tuners, So far so good, they are holding their tuning, and I expect them to get better as they settle in the humid Miami air.
-Coil split, I love that, lots of great tones to be had.

Not so good:
-I had to adjust the neck as it had a decent case of neck bow. The positive is that the rod adjuster is very easy to use. It's a small piece of steel that fits in the truss rod at the bottom of the neck. Easy.
-The tone/coil-split knob was loose, I adjusted it, and tightened the knob with the enclosed hex key, but it still feels like it may be the entire apparatus, I hope the fix holds.
The action is too high and needs to be adjusted, of course, the Wilkinson tremolo is different than other setups and some instructions would be nice.
-intonation is way off (see above).
This was my fifth Harley Benton and it was the first time I have had enough problems to write about. I'm going to play it for a few days and see if it grabs me or is it one that might wind up being a lovely B stock in the Thomann warehouse.

Second thoughts,
I take back all I complained about this guitar. After playing it and comparing its tone to my other Harley Benton Humbuckers. I can say this baby is the best of the best. What a guitar for $300 USD. I have really had a chance to get acquainted with it and in a word it is FLAWLESS. Do yourself a favor and buy one, you will not regret it.

Great guitar, just go ahead and try it
Alexander RU, 02.08.2020
I'm not a pro, just a hobby guitarist on my third year of learning.
Got it over a month ago and waited to write a review.
I have HB GS mini mahogany and ST 57DG, both are great instruments for the money. Wanted to try a higher priced HB.
Decided to go with trem version as it seemed more versatile + coil splitting. And Wilkinson is a known brand. Guitar needed some wiping from factory dust, other than that can't find anything to complain about. Wiped dust inside trem and potentiometers cavity (the latter is covered in magnetic paint, and cover has foil on it). Fretwork is nice and solid, finish is even and spotless. There is one scuffed area behind the bridge which I can see only under direct sunlight, can be buffed out. And tone pushpull knob can stay in place when I pull on it, need to wedge it or get a knob with fixing screw.
Guitar is heavier than I expected - 4 kg, but not very bulky, sits great on my lap without any head dives. Couldn't determine slabs lines, must be 2-3 piece body, idk mine looks like a single piece.
Trem is working fine, no tuning issues, althougth bought a Graphtec string tree just in case.
Pickups gave me 9 something on multimeter, not really hot, but playable.
Overall very impressive guitar and looks magnificent, that metallic green. She is a looker )))

Thoman, you should update stock photos, because on the newer models pickup switch is positioned diagonally same as on Fusion II. The original switch position (on photos) was a turn off for some people. It would be nice for them to know that you've listened and updated the guitar. Great job!

For my Russian comrades: all my guitars were delivered by Russian Post, safe and sound. For fusion T I had to pay a customs fee though as it is over 200 euros.

Excellent value for money !
Justin Elliott, 09.03.2021
I've been wanting a twin humbucker tele with a trem for a while.
This is the first affordable tele with this spec I've seen, only other options were Tom Anderson or Suhr guitars that are thousands more.
Out of the box this guitar was virtually in tune, the frets are nicely levelled, smooth edges and a really nice comfortable neck. The quality of finish is way above what I paid for this axe. SS frets are unheard of at this price point. The real surprise were the pickups. I wasn't expecting much but was very impressed, especially with the high gain amp presets I've made with my Fractal FM3, clear, articulate and plenty of output. Usually OEM pickups are pretty mushy with distortion and usually a straight swap. No need IMO to get rid of these anytime soon. The only downside of this axe are the factory strings, not nice at all, they don't feel nice to play but nothing a set of D'Addario's won't sort out, a very minor point.
A note on the tremolo, the Wilkinson on this unit is excellent, stays nicely in tune but don't think this will give you floyd rose type action, this is a more subtle trem, I use it a lot for tremolo scoops and vibrato for clean chords, its perfect for that.
Overall, fantastic value, and hard not to consider pulling the trigger on another fusion pro when they become available (hmmm, maybe a reason they're never in stock!) Thankyou Thomann!
