Amazing guitar (high quality)
rmatiazo 09.11.2021
I bought this guitar because I always wished to have a guitar with roasted maple neck.
It’s my first telecaster and I’m very impressed by the quality for a such low price guitar.
I have in my collection 2 USA PRS guitars (Tremonti and McCarthy) and USA Fender American Performer Stratocaster. So I have parameters to compare the guitars.
What can I say about Harley Benton Fusion T III ?
The guitar is well built, great woods, bridge locking tuners, stainless steel frets well placed on the neck.
The Silver Sparkle finishing is a gorgeous. Flawless.
Regards to back of the guitar body. It’s beautiful. I just found a little piece of varnish cracked on the back next to cover plate, but this is not a big issue for returning the guitar to Thomann.
The roasted maple neck is a dream to play. Very soft. The satin finishing is amazing. Neck very easy to play.
You know that feeling when you get a guitar to play and playing flows naturally. It’s that I’m telling about.
The guitar is well setup from factory with 3 springs. But I feel that the trem is not so smooth to use. In the next setup I’ll change for 2 springs.
I’m happy with guitar. The guitar has 2 humbucker with pushpull to split them making more versatile.
In the future I intend to replace the the whole wiring and pickups with Suhr Thornbucker set.

Excellent guitar!
KresoD 11.11.2021
It is so amusing to consider that this, relatively cheap instrument, is competing for the title of the best guitar I own. Looks, playability and features are comparable with my expensive custom made super strat, and I actually prefer the sound of this instrument. :)

Let's start with three flaws I noticed:
- fretboard is super dry. I instantly fixed this with two layers of lemon oil
- neck was not perfectly aligned with the body, so first string was to close to the edge. Also an easy fix - I unscrewed the neck, slightly changed the angle and screwed it back
- volume pot broke during the first gig. I notified Thomann, and they instantly sent a replacement. Top notch service, as always.

Now, let's move to everything that is great about the guitar:
Sound: relatively low-output humbuckers, in combination with the guitar wood (whatever it is) sound punchy and rich, with clear definition and distinction between neck and bridge. They sound great with any type of setting: clean, overdrive and high gain. I don't use coil split option, but it is nice to have it.

Playability: I changed strings to 009 gauge, removed one tremolo spring, adjusted the neck a little bit and lowered the action. Guitar is super easy to play. Modern C profile is a breeze to play. Satin neck feels wonderful - this neck is worth the price alone! Steel frets are well done.

Looks: wow! This is a gorgeous guitar! Silver sparkle looks amazing. Neck and fretboard have a dark colour with visible tiger stripes on maple. Really top-class and beautiful. A detail I just love: all the hardware (tuners, pick-up covers, knobs, tremolo...) is matte. Wonderful!
