Amazing Value
StevieSandstone, 22.12.2017
Tuners, nut, bridge and electrics are cheap garbage. The frets are very rough. However the body and neck are perfect for an inexpensive project guitar.
I got this guitar to do a fret level and polish and upgrade all the hardware, it's perfect for this purpose. I'm extremely happy with the result.
Got a wilkinson trem, axetec locking tuners and a tusc nut, tuning stability, action and intonation are now perfect and it stays in tune even after extreme trem use.
The pickups were a surprise, I was planning to upgrade them but after trying them out, I haven't changed them yet. A real bonus that I wasn't expecting.

What I love about the guitar:
Neck is a nice shape, not super thin like an Ibanez, it's just a bit chunkier like a Schecter
Frets were pretty level, didn't have much work there, but they needed a lot of polishing
Reverse headstock is a great feature, it looks great but even better it gives more tension on the low strings for chugging and less tension on the high strings for bending

My only gripe:
I wish the heal joint was a bit more modern, it doesn't bother me much, but ferrules instead of a back plate and a slight taper would have made this guitar absolutely perfect.

Conclusion:
I paid very little money for this guitar and with a bit of work and a few choice upgrades was able to make it into a very, very good guitar. I have a few £1000 + Schecters and Ibanez guitars and this guitar after the work I did, is easily as good as them. Thankyou Harley Benton and Thomann for providing a great quality guitar for a joke price

The weakest sides of this guitar are:
Finish – it's made so poor that it holds your fingerprints (even if you washed your hands twice) and it screws the look of the guitar really bad.
Tuning – it's pretty unstable, always need to tune it after a couple of tight riffs, but okay, manageable.
Frets – they are rounded not that good too and scratch your fret playing hand, not to cut off it, but not that comfortable too.
The strong side is sound – it is pretty solid, no doubt there. Clear sound without noises, sounds good on distortion, really nice.

Overall – okay+ value for 100 euro + shipping.
