Excellent product

This guitar ticked so many boxes in the description that I couldn’t resist ordering one. I am really happy that I ordered this. What I received was an unexpectedly high quality guitar that plays great, sounds quite good, and holds its own against guitars 3-4x the cost in terms of playability. It’s very good overall. (Not “good for the price” - this is a really nice guitar.)

Pros
- I love the neck. Both the profile and the texture. Thick enough to be comfortable for chords/rhythm, thin enough for leads
- Comfortable, contoured heel
- Surprisingly good tuners
- Good fretwork on mine. The ends are dressed well, but the tops are a bit scratchy. Easy fix, and common in this price range
- No paint flaws on the one I received
- Decent pickups. This is the only thing I might eventually replace though
- Good tremolo, if you like Wilkinson tremolos

Cons
- The tremolo is a bit stiff for my taste. I might remove the 3rd spring as a test
- I can’t get the bridge pickup completely level. It has a slight tilt to it. (I also have this problem on a very expensive guitar, and it is somewhat expected for direct mounts)
- The blue is a bit more pronounced than it is in the photos, which are rather muted
- If, by height adjustment, I can’t get the pickups to sound the way I want, I might pursue a set of DiMarzio’s. But they’re not bad at all.

Hesitating? Based on what I received, don’t hesitate. This is an awesome guitar. Even if I end up putting in $250 in pickups, it is still a bargain.

I hope HB create a shred variant of this guitar. With jumbo frets and a thinner profile neck. I’d buy that in a heartbeat as a companion to this one.

An absolutely phenomenal guitar for the money!
JamesLay 20.02.2022
This is my first Harley Benton guitar and it’s safe to say I’m absolutely blown away by the quality, playability and tone of a guitar at this price point!
In more recent years I have usually only bought Japanese or US built guitars because I’m a big fan of their quality, but after seeing pictures of this I was intrigued to see what I could get for this kind of money. After receiving it and spending some time with it, I can honestly say this guitar has completely changed my perception on guitars in this price range!
Out of the box it did need a bit of setup (mainly innovation truss adjustment) but after that it plays just as good, and sounds just as good as some of the highest end guitars I own! The neck especially is unbelievable! I would highly recommend it to anyone, and I can safely say I will be buying more Harley Benton guitars from Thomann!

Ravis !

Voilà, guitariste depuis 30 ans, une quinzaine de guitares, dont certaines à plus de 2000€, je pense avoir un peu de recul pour juger la qualité d'un instrument. Et bien, je suis impressionné par cette HB fusion T d'à peine 400 €. Elle est magnifique, le manche est trop beau. Flammé et torréfié. Les frettes sont parfaitement posées (c'est ce qui m'inquiétait le plus à vrai dire, car ça fait une grosse partie de la jouabilité) . Pour être honnête, j'ai dû limer le passage des cordes au sillet de tête, pour les redescendre d'au moins 0,5mm, j'ai redescendu également l'assiette du vibrato et réajuster corde par corde l'action. Il y avait aussi un souci de longueur diapason sur chaque cordes. J'ai donc ajusté chaque pontet. Je suis un peu un psychopathe à ce niveau là, j'aime les réglages de shreddeur, action très basse et intonations parfaite jusqu'aux 22ème cases. Bref, si vous voulez une guitare avec la fiche technique des instruments à plus de 2000 balles (frettes inox manche torréfié, mécaniques à blocage...) et que vous savez régler une gratte, foncez !!! Je n'ai pour ma part aucun pb existentiel comme certains que ce soit écrit Harley benton sur la tête. J'envisage tout de même de remplacer les micros qui sonnent trop froid à mon goût.
Ravis je vous dis!

Unglaublich, was hier für 400€ geboten wird
Loukater 23.12.2021
Meine Vorbehalte gegen günstige, in Fernost produzierte Instrumente waren groß. Aber die Fusion-T HH hat mich eines besseren belehrt. Ich habe keinerlei Mängel in der Verarbeitung gefunden, der Roasted Maple Hals ist großartig und fühlt sich an, wie ein alter Bekannter. Sogar Edelstahlbünde sind drauf. Die Pickups klingen großartig. Ich hatte zunächst vor, die Pickups zu tauschen, doch die bleiben jetzt drin. Lediglich der Spielraum des Vibratosystems ist konstruktionsbedingt etwa eingeschränkt. Dafür arbeitet das Wilkinson zusammen mit den Locking Mechaniken verstimmungsfrei. Tolles Instrument, dass ich ohne Blick auf den Headstock für eine locker dreimal so teure Gitarre gehalten hätte.
