Nice Guitar!.. with some work.
Jacksonian, 05.02.2021
I purchased my HB-35PLUS LH Cherry to be my main practice unit to respectfully knock around and drag to practices. At first site you'll be struck by the gorgeous see thru Cherry finish. The deep red color is really very beautiful and the glossy finish accents the wood grain which is visible all around the guitar. The flame top grain on mine is somewhat subtle but is very nice looking. The binding is well done and adds classy appeal to the appearance. I love the shape of the keystone tuning knobs and found my tuners to operate smoothly and hold pitch pretty well. Overall a very pretty guitar especially for the price.
Cons: The TOM bridge is deluxe. Nice little internal wire to keep rattles out of the saddles. Unfortunately, this guitar was treated terribly in shipping and the bridge was collapsed to point of no fretboard radius with the center strings buzzing. I replaced it with a Tone-pros bridge and tailpiece. The strap button was screwed right into the back of the neck joint's split line which separated the joint enough to crack the clearcoat all the way across the heel where the neck and body meet. The string nut was not done so well.
Pros: With a new bridge and tailpiece and a complete setup including neck adjustment and fret dressing this has become a very vibrant and enjoyable guitar to play. The bones of the guitar are excellent as are the electrics and the finish. I expected to do a complete setup of the guitar but had go a bit farther because of shipping damage. I would definitely recommend it to a friend. Thanks Thomann for another great guitar. This makes the 4th HB guitar in my house!

Very Impressed
Hawk InTheWind, 03.08.2019
Comment:
As a Left Handed player I've found the Harley Benton lineup to be very refreshing and well worth it. It's about time Left Hand players were recognized more! Keep 'em coming PLEASE!

THIS HB 35 plus LH in Maple Cherry Red:
Wow what a beauty! The website pics don't do the maple top on this any justice at all. The flame top really comes through the finish just right. I especially like the binding at the f-holes. Nice touch.
I'm still on the fence with the pick guard, and may take it off and let the whole guitar ..just BE ya know?

For me, this guitar really shines playing blues. The neck pup is my fav tone position.
If you split the coils and experiment, you can dial in nicely for a brighter sound that will cover a wide genre. The bridge humbucker has a crisp underlying need for a tube amp volume knob swell, where it wants to live at the edge of break up, AND this guitar responds nice to a tube driver pedal and plays very well with a guitar processor and Daw impulse responses.
The neck feels naturally comfortable and smooth. I play with 9 gauge XL's and was very impressed at the tone clarity while bending notes a lot.
It's balanced well.
To me, this has soul just waiting to be expressed.

The only cons for me would be the tuners, because I love to bend - so I always upgrade to locking tuners anyway. If your not a bend-a-holic like me, you are good to go.

Thanks HB (wherever you are…) haha.

Excellent guitar for an excellent price
Leftystrings, 16.12.2019
Being a left handed guitar player, it is almost impossible to find a decent guitar for decent price.
At first I was skeptical about the Harley Benton guitars from Thomann, but for that price I gave it a try.

The build quality is just excellent. Nice heavy wood, feels like a real guitar :-) The frets have no sharp edges and the binding is flawless.
The sound is top notch: full and with a lot air (what you expect from a semi-hollow). It looks like the neck has a C-profile, like they used in 50's. I like this kind of neck it provides a good grip , unlike those flat and fast necks of late. The split-coil option makes the sound options even more interesting.

Although for this price it is unjustified to have any complaints, but there a few opportunities for improvements:
- The tuner pegs feels loose. Although they do not result in any de-tuning of the strings
- Although you can see the maple stripes the lacquer could be more transparent to my taste
- The pots for tone and volume are reversed, i.e. 0 = open , 10 = closed. Looks like they installed it for a right handed guitar.

All in all great value for money, even if you are a more experienced player!

What a Beauty
Den The Men, 10.01.2020
I've been playing guitar for over 45 years and have had my fair share of budget and professional guitars, about twenty. After reading so many positive reviews I thought I'd take a chance and buy a Harley Benton H-35Plus. It was one of the best decisions I have made buying a guitar.
This now is one of my favourite guitars in my collection, the cherry Red finish and maple top are so striking. If you are looking for a reasonably priced ES type guitar that looks and plays well, you really can't go wrong with this guitar, it is an absolute joy to play and look at.
I have made two mods, one out of preference than quality, I installed AlNiCO II pickups and upgraded the tuners, which were not too bad, but wanted good quality locking ones. The upgrades only cost me £55.00 and well worth it. I also oiled the fretboard, which was a bit dry when I got it and polished the frets with special metal polish used in the motor trade. They were a bit rough when I got the guitar, you could hear the strings scratch on the frets when doing pull ups, but know after polishing them, they are super shinny and smooth. I also did myself a professional set-up, which you should do with any guitar, more so to make it play and feel how you like. The set up out of the box was fair.
In all this a striking lovely to play guitar, superb value for money, better than a Epiphone for sure.
