Another outstanding guitar at an incredible price!
Mandi V., 15.03.2020
This is my second Harley Benton guitar. My first was the Harley Benton Fusion-II HH FR Roasted FBB, which I was very impressed with. I wrote a review for it, as well, which you can read on the product page. I was hoping that this guitar would be as good as that one. It definitely is.

Just like with my Fusion-II, I could find no finish flaws at all. The color of this guitar looks very green on the product page, but in person, it truly is a turquoise color. That shouldn't have been a surprise, but it was. Just a little bit, anyway. It wasn't a bad surprise, though. It's a beautiful guitar and I'm still very pleased with the way it looks.

The neck is a very fast, satin-finished, delicious-looking caramelized color. The soft V profile makes chording an absolute joy and the moderately flat radius also allows for easy string bending. I've owned dozens of guitars over the past 31 years and this guitar has one of the best necks I've ever played. Yeah, it's really that good.

The pickups were a bit of a surprise, too. I own a somewhat similar guitar, a Yamaha Pacifica 611HFM, which is also a hard-tail guitar with a bridge humbucker and a P90 neck pickup, too. That guitar has Seymour Duncan pickups in it, so it obviously sounds great. To my ears, though, the Roswell pickups in this guitar sound just as good, if not better. Perhaps they're not top quality, but these pickups just seem to match the tonewoods used in this guitar so well that I have no plans to change them.

The coil tap and phase switching makes this guitar very versatile. It can sound bright, warm, loud, soft, and sort of odd with the phase inversion switched on, but all of the sounds are nice and usable. I wish I could say the same for some of my other, more expensive guitars.

The GraphTech nut and locking tuners are very nice touches, as well, and completely unheard of in this price range. My Pacifica has both of these features, too, but it also cost almost double what this guitar did. Kudos to Harley Benton for caring enough to install such quality parts, because the tuning stability is very solid as a result and sometimes that's all a good guitar needs to become a great guitar, like this one is.

Overall, this is an excellent guitar that looks sharp, plays smoothly, sounds sweet, and stays in tune very well. I'm very happy with it.

If you're thinking that this somewhat unusual guitar might be right for you, then you're probably 100% right and I highly recommend it without a doubt.

Great features with a few issues
Frethead, 23.08.2020
This guitar looks fantastic and has incredible specifications. My favorite features are the neck and the P90. This is the first guitar I have owned with a roasted maple neck and I was really surprised by how slick it feels.

Unfortunately, I had issues with both the nut and the saddles. The original nut had a double trough in the G string slot that would cause the string to jump between troughs when bending the string which produced a horrible sound. In addition, the action at the nut was twice as high as your typical spec which caused intonation issues at the first three frets. To make matters worse, I had to replace the nut twice because I'm not exactly a luthier. I finally got the nut sorted out and realized I had a bad sitar sound coming from several strings. I added a graphtec string tree on the D and G strings because there was literally no break angle between the nut and tuners. The B string was a different issue. The sitar sound on the B string was caused by metal burrs on the saddle just behind the string break point.

After several months of fighting, It works!

For they money a steal
nickblues, 18.09.2020
I was looking for something different and something that was versatile and this guitar sure delievers.

It has many options sound wise with coil spliting and also out of phase options and the pickups especially the P90 sounds very good. This is by no means a metal axe, the clean tones are lovely if you are into blues and funk, for rock the P90 and humbucker sounds great driven and gives you a lot of classic rock and punk rock/alternative rock vibes.The locking tuners are also a huge plus as this guitar when the strings are stretched will hold tune very well.

The fit and finish is good for this price point . There is very little to complain about,a few flaws here and there but for the price can be forgiven. The maple top and maple neck and fretboard feel and look wonderful, all I needed to do was adjust the intonation and it plays very well.

Overall this is a great guitar and I adore it, Harley Benton and Henning Pauly did a great job on this model and for the money the fit and finish, sound and features are insane

Extremely Well Built For Price
Hooterville Jimmi , 13.03.2020
I had seen Harley Benton guitars on you tube a few months ago,
At first I just watched, thinking they can not be that good at the price point that everyone was saying, At that time there wasn't a thought in my mind of purchasing one for any reason.
I own 30 plus guitars with a majority of those being Gibson so all though these looked good I was just a sideline watcher.
Knowing that Henning Pauly knows a good guitar when he gets his hands on one, I decided to give has signature Harley Benton a shot, paid the expedited shipping and three days it arrived.
( Now the packing was RIDICULOUS for a package sent around the block let alone half way across the world, Okay, it wasn't that damaged other than a mark on the headstock where the inter box with nothing else around it had flew around in the larger box and wiped out the styrofoam at the end of the box and the headstock ripped through the cardboard).
Pure luck, back to the guitar, simply put its a very beautiful guitar and plays great ,fit and finish are spot on it stays tuned up and sounds great.
Don't know if i will be a repeat customer over the packaging issues.
couldn't imagine buying a top of the line Les Paul and it arriving that way.
In conclusion if you decide to get this guitar you won't be disappointed, ROCK ON
