Unusual combination of features.

I purchased the HB MR modern, as soon as I saw the first photographs and read it’s specification, and on the whole I have not been disappointed. Locking machine heads, tusk nut, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, stainless steel frets, a Wilkinson 2 point tremolo and an Alder body are all premium parts.
The only unknown elements were the Artec AHC-90 soap bar Alnico humbuckers. I had never come across these, splittable pickups before and although I have now watched several YouTube reviews indicating that these are the weakest part of the package, being fairly cheap items if bought off the shelf, they do produce considerable variations in tone, with one criticism from me and that is the need to significantly increase the volume of the amplifier, if, while playing as a humbucker, you switch to single coil mode.
I hope Thomann release a different review showing the varying tones and uses this guitar is able to achieve, rather than just the “ Mossrite,” punk demonstrated on its release, as I think it limits its appeal....

Harley Benton MR-Modern MBL. una bontà.

le ultime hb acquisite sono state la junior e la special, ottime chitarre con piccole beghe sistemabili in dieci minuti e con una tastiera talmente bella e rifinita da fare invidia ai modelli di riferimento.
ora ho preso questa MR, ci suono da un paio di giorni ed è davvero ottima sotto molti punti di vista. ben rifinita, elettronica silenziosa, meccaniche brutte ma funzionali, suono ottimo. e poi, intonazione perfetta e ottavatura al centesimo, quindi capotasto e ponte ben ingegnerati e posati. lo split è favoloso, la leva non è certo pensata per giochi di prestigio e il sistema è ben congegnato.
i primi che avranno il coraggio di gridare al boicottaggio di certe "copie" sono pregati di contattare danelectro per le BT66 (un esempio) di cui son già felice possessore.
viva harley benton!
saluti
