Qualty Instrument!
Jan Pedersen, 01.03.2020
Reviews are not something I do often and they are usually pretty short.
Harley Benton guitars keeps coming up in various reviews on Youtube and my curiosity finally got the better of me, I had to order one to see for myself what this was all about.
I did not want to go for one of the less expensive models but instead wanted to see what the higher priced models would look, sound and feel like. I chose the HB Fusion-T HH HT EB BK mainly because I don’t have a Tele style guitar already and I like the black finish and, the reviews I had seen.
The guitar arrived a little over a week after ordering, well packed and with no damage to either outer or inner box. I let the box sit in room temperature for a few hours after it arrived, I always to that to shipped guitars and electronics.
After unpacking, I spent some time going over the guitar just looking for any possible flaws, there were none, absolutely none.
I tuned the guitar and checked for intonation and a couple of string had to have a small adjustment but nothing serious. Even much more expensive Gibson’s need intonation adjustments.
The craftmanship behind this guitar is immaculate, the quality control flawless, this is a high quality instrument, super solid and beautiful to look at.
The neck is smooth as a baby’s a.. fretwork, polished better than any of my other guitars, fret ends are maybe not as rounded as they are on much higher priced guitars but they are well done anyway and don’t need any work.
Tuners are smooth and the guitar stays in tune very well.
Pick up’s are hot and sounds great, I have run them through the new VOX Cambridge 50 and an older Mesa Subway Blues and it sounds great on both.
The black piano finish on the top and the beautiful red back and side is a very nice combination of colors.
A review without a Con is not a real review and I do have one, the balance is not great, the guitar is very top heavy, more than my Gibson SG, it will take some time getting used to, I might try to add some lead to the potentiometer cavity to see if that helps with the balance, the guitar is not very heavy anyway.
If you have been looking at this guitar but are undecided, I can only say that I am very happy that I did buy this one. The quality is much higher than the price suggest.

Nice looking guitar let down by poor Quality Control
damo, 02.07.2020
I dithered and deliberated over buying this guitar. 300 euros is well below the price of name brand guitar, but it marks the upper range of harley bentons. I read the other reviews here , some were effusive, some disappointed, I was one of the unlucky ones it seems

I have 6 other Harley Benton electric guitars. All of them save one had better QC than this one. All of them are cheaper.

So the good
Smooth neck
Locking tuners
Steel frets
Good fretwork, no sharp or pokey frets

The bad:
Cosmetics- marks and minor dings which were not terrible but should not be there on a brand new guitar.

Control knobs were funky, no other word for it. No sign of carton damage so I guess it was inspected and passed like this. One knob sticks, gets very stiff half way through revolution. The other turns freely with no resistance whatsoever.

Whoever inspected this guitar was having an off day. It sat in Thomann's quality control for a week before despatch. I don't know what they were doing with it, but not inspecting it properly it seems.

For comparison I bought one of the new Harley Benton ST62 models a few months back, aside from the obvious lower cost fittings that guitar was flawless at half the price of the one.

So it goes back and the pain is it will take 10 days minimum to get back to Thomann and by the time I can order a replacement (not this model) 25 days will have passed.

Please Thomann up your game with QC, your customer service is good, but your QC is very hit and miss. I have been lucky and unlucky

The kind of guitar I would have loved as my first. I recommend it.
FerrariStu, 25.02.2020
In an age where you can buy a bad guitar for thousands and a good guitar for hundreds, it's a minefield for the first-time buyer - on any budget. I have several guitars (of all prices), and I'm in my 50s. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about so I ordered this because the online reviews were great and it looked great too.

To give you a fair comparison, I bought a Squire Tele a couple of years ago - and while the basic build quality was 'good enough', it wasn't as good as this. Both guitars were well built, well set up - save for necessary ajustments to the action - and both looked good out of the box.

The difference is that, on the Squire, I had to change the pickups, the tuners, the bridge saddles, the pots and the switch - to make it 'good enough to play' (for me). On the Harley Benton, I cannot immediately justify changing anything but the switch (a little bit noisy on use) to make it 'good enough to play', which is ridiculous, especially given that the Squire cost about 33% more than the HB.

The hard-tail bridge is better, the Tusq XL nut, the finish - all better than you'd reasonably expect for this price. It has stainless steel frets (well dressed) and staggered locking tuners too (unheard of for the price). 'Pinch yourself' stuff, really.

There was the odd imperfection, but nothing at all vital and it would be churlish to detail them here. If you want perfection - pay 2-3 times the price and hope for the best.

I'm sure there will be good and bad ones (like all guitars). If the guitar doesn't feel good enough to play - send it back. Luckily, you can't lose with Thomann, as they want you to be happy. In a nutshell, expect a very nice guitar for the price and send it back if it isn't. Don't expect perfection because, for the money, it just needs to be effortlessly playable and nothing more.

It's also beautiful. Looks classy. Something to be proud of and play well. I wish this was available when I was 17.

Value for money !
Hillman, 17.04.2020
I bought the strat style fusion about a year ago and that one has become my go-to guitar since then. However, I also wanted a guitar with a fixed bridge (for easy drop D or Eb) so decided to check out the Fusion T.

Spec-wise they look very similar to the strat style fusions, but the actual sound of the guitar is slightly less bright (which I like!) has more bottom end and way better sustain. Using the coil-split you can get a more aggressive tone, in particular in the bridge position. The one thing I noticed was that the guitar is slightly neck heavy, so it needs a bit of getting used to. Other than that a great guitar which I'm using in my (amateur) band now as my main guitar combined with a Helix.

Overall (in particular for the money that was paid) a 5 star rating, except for the quality. The volume pot is a bit "scratchy" and I needed to lift the tone and volume knobs slightly as they were damaging the paint. Just some minor issues, technically everything works as it should.

Overall, these HB Fusion guitars are great value for money and they are perfect for use live if you don't care about what name is printed on the headstock....
