In the most classic tradition

The Harley Benton HB-35 BK is a semi-hollow electric guitar that instantly calls to mind classic guitars of the past - albeit without the hefty price tag. It features a maple body with an arched top that is adorned with elegant f-holes, and the combination of a high-gloss black finish and chrome hardware completes its authentic vintage look. The guitar's construction incorporates a solid block of wood that runs through the centre of the body, which together with its set maple neck ensures plenty of sustain and helps to prevent unwanted feedback when playing at high volume. The latter in turn features a 22-fret amaranth fingerboard with white pearloid dot inlays that provide a visual contrast and easier orientation when playing, and both neck and body (front and back) are adorned with cream-coloured binding, a feature usually reserved for much pricier instruments.

Pure retro charm

To ensure that the Harley Benton HB-35 delivers a retro feast for the ears as well as the eyes, the guitar features a pair of vintage-style humbucking pickups, and its combination of a Tune-o-Matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece together with the internal centre block mentioned above provide a full, sustaining sound. At the opposite end, the headstock is adorned by a set of sealed diecast machine heads that promise many years of reliable service. The neck features a comfortable C profile and is equipped with a double-action trussrod for optimum adjustability, and both the 628mm (24.7") scale length and 42mm (1.65") nut width are also typical for this style of guitar. The same is true of the HB-35's electronics, which comprise a three-way toggle switch and dedicated volume and tone controls for each pickup, so players can easily dial in any tone they desire.

Back to the '60s

The Harley Benton HB-35 is an excellent choice for fans of the classic guitars of the 1960s, and its retro looks and typical hollowbody sound also make it a great instrument for the stage. Its vintage-style pickups deliver the perfect sound for live performances and studio recordings too, so players who can do without a tremolo will have everything they need - and the superior tuning stability provided by a fixed bridge will doubtless be a bonus in both situations.

About Harley Benton

Since 1998, the Harley Benton brand has been catering for the needs of numerous guitarists and bassists. In addition to an extensive range of stringed instruments, Thomann's house brand also offers a wide choice of amplifiers, speakers, effect pedals, and other accessories. In total, the range includes over 1,500 products. Built by established names in the industry, all Harley Benton products combine quality and reliability at attractive and affordable prices. The continuous expansion of the range ensures that Harley Benton always provides new, exciting, and innovative products that keep players perfectly in tune with the musical world, day after day.

Chuck Berry sends his regards

From Blues and Jazz through to Indie, the Harley Benton HB-35 will be a guaranteed eyecatcher on stage. It represents a great choice for live players with much more expensive guitars who are looking for a suitable backup instrument as well as for studio musicians looking to unleash their inner Chuck Berry with catchy double-stop riffs, power chords, and full-sounding melodies. To authentically replicate the sounds of the era, the HB-35 should of course be combined with a suitable tube amplifier with sufficient headroom. Those who are looking to expand their palette of sounds with splittable pickups or would prefer an attractive flamed maple top, however, should instead take a look at this guitar's big sister, the Harley Benton HB-35Plus.

Je tiens a remercier toute l'équipe Thomann car, malgré des soucis techniques ceux ci m'ont adressé ma commande dans les plus brefs délais.Concernant l'Harley benton HB35 celle ci est magnifique je n'ai constaté aucun défaut ;réglage parfait le son est franchement trés correct pour un tel prix .Seul petit bémol lors du changement de cordes une mécanique HS Appel au service aprés vente ,il m'envoie une nouvelle piéce.
Je suis actuellement occupé à la réalisation d'une copie d'ES335 et lorsque je constate le prix que je dois mettre en ce qui concerne l'accastillage les micros etc , je ne compte pas le bois ni la main d'oeuvre je suis toujours sur le c-l de voir comment cette marque vend les guitares à un tel prix.Je ne sais si la qualité s'est améliorée car par moment c'était un peu la loterie.C'est la deuxiéme harley que j'ai commandé , la premiére étant une sc custom(Type les paul); est ce que j'ai eu de la chance? celles ci étaient sans aucun défaut mise à part la mécanique.Il semble que d'autes clients ont eu des petits problémes.Pour les personnes peu fortunées c'est un vrai bonheur de pouvoir acquérir de tels instruments. Pour info le pickguard n'est plus celui qui est présenté et dont la découpe était baclée.Le nouveau modéle copie celui de la gibson et en ce qui me concerne, il est correctement réalisé. pour en terminer longue vie à Harley Benton.
