If you are looking for a 335-eque guitar with an amazing paint job, look no further!
Captain_Crunch 24.04.2021
I own multiple HB's of varying price ranges, and this is definitely the best one I have purchased yet. Top quality in my eyes, especially given the price. No sharp fret ends, paint job is absolutely fantastic (there's one tiny mark near the "binding" on the bottom horn. You won't see it unless you're absolutely looking for imperfections). I had been eying the Cherry Red HB-35 Plus for a long time, but when I saw the new colors and this amazing Green/Gold I had to get it!

Neck has a good feel. Not thick, not thin either. Electronics sound good for this price range. Some might change the pickups but with a good setup of them (changing height/pole piece height), you can get them to sound very good. Tuners are nice and the guitar stays in tune. They aren't locking but they do their job.

It was mentioned in another review that the pull-knob is difficult to grab: if you pull from the base of the knob and not the stem it is very fluid to activate the coil-taps. Which, by the way, sound excellent!

The versatility of this guitar is very wide (I'm sure you know if you're looking at 335's). From clean jazz/blues to classic rock to rockabilly and beyond. I've even gotten some good doom tones out of this.

There are really no cons that I can see here. The neck was a bit dirty, but at my first string change I just cleaned her up with some Dunlop Lemon oil and used a fret polishing rubber on the frets and all is well. For 250 euros you are getting an outstanding piece of gear here. Setup was great out of the box. I've had guitars 3x this price that required a longer setup. I didn't have to adjust the truss rod, nor the bridge height at all. Minor adjustments to the pickups as mentioned earlier and a bit of intonation changes at the saddles.

I sound like I'm shilling for HB here but in my 20 years of playing guitar I am quite pleasantly surprised with this, and more impressed by HB with each guitar I purchase from them. Highly recommended!

Bargian for price but a few issues! However for £211 what would you expect!
Bucketbot 05.09.2021
Looks Great but fretwork needed. Action set very high and there are many high frets all along the neck which make the guitar unplayable if you lower the action.
This cannot really be resolved with a truss rod adjustment.
I can rectify this myself with a sanding beam to level the frets.
Apart from that the finish is generally very good and the metallic green looks great!
Bridge is also very poor quality and I have replaced it with a spare Epiphone tune o'matic bridge that I have lying around. Also the stop bar tail piece doesn't look right. Also replaced with a spare epi unit.
The pickups also sound OK so I may leave them in after initially thinking I may replace them.

Beautiful, but not flawless
Buizerd 23.03.2021
Nice guitar
-love the colour combination
- set up was fine. only Had to lower the action.
-sound is good
-overall finish was good.
-fret work also nice

Things to consider:
-Everything was great until i turned the guitar over and looked at the area where the neck joins the body and the strap lock bolt is mounted.
I’m not sure what i see here. Is it a crack in the wood or just a bad clear paint job in this joined area. When i saw none of the strings where put on tension i got a little suspicious
I tuned the guitar, so far no problems. I think it is just a crack in the paint.
-The knobs are not easy to pull because they are not easy to get a grip on.

Way ahead of its price
Strumalong 18.06.2021
Well I am very pleased with my Harley Benton HB-35Plus Metallic Green. The quality is great with nicely polished fret ends. The actual green is paler than shown but very pleasing to the eye. The sound is great and I love the neck pup ,it's really creamy. the coil tapping is a bonus and good for mixed single and double play. It seams to keep tune ok even though I suspect the tuners a little on the cheap side.
Overall this guitar is a well finished piece of eye candy that sounds great.
