A classic single cut on a budget
Harley Benton has long enjoyed a reputation for making excellent-quality instruments available to players on a budget, and the SC-400 SBK is no exception. This timeless-looking single cut guitar combines a solid basswood body with a set maple neck and chrome-plated hardware, which together with its "Satin Black" finish gives the instrument an understated yet eyecatching look. The SC-400 SBK comes loaded with a pair of Classic open humbucking pickups that will capably handle everything from shimmering cleans through to full-on distortion, while its slim C-shape neck profile also ensures a smooth playing feel that will make life much easier for beginners taking their first steps on the guitar.
For that classic "SC" sound
The SC-400 SBK's combination of a basswood body, maple neck, and Classic open humbuckers makes for a full, warm-sounding tone when amplified. The pickups themselves are governed by the simple yet effective control layout that has become virtually synonymous with SC-style guitars: A three-way toggle switch together with a dedicated volume and tone control for each pickup. The ease of use that this layout provides is accompanied by a high level of playing comfort thanks to the guitar's 22-fret roseacer fingerboard, adorned with trapezoid inlays. Harley Benton has also not cut any corners in selecting high-quality hardware for this instrument, so players can be sure that the tried-and-trusted combination of a Tune-o-Matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece together with a set of Kluson-style machine heads will deliver many years of reliable service.
The ideal guitar for beginners
The Harley Benton SC-400 SBK is the ideal instrument for beginners, who more often than not have to get by on a restricted budget but, quite understandably, still want to get their hands on the best instrument possible. Newcomers to the guitar can look forward here to a classic Rock sound and - thanks to the guitar's sleek satin finish, gold-coloured knobs, and chrome-plated hardware - start those first jam sessions with full confidence, safe in the knowledge that their single cut looks every bit as great as it sounds.
