A vintage-style single-cut
Harley Benton has always been known for offering top-quality instruments for musicians on a budget. The Harley Benton SC-450Plus is no exception and comes with the typical "single-cut" looks - complete with a solid mahogany body, a flamed maple top with flamed veneer, and a high-gloss "Cherry Burst" finish: An absolute eye-catcher! Two humbucking Roswell pickups with chrome covers provide a warm and powerful sound with plenty of growl. Beginners in particular thus have the perfect opportunity to buy an affordable guitar with an iconic look and vintage sound.
Classic looks with modern features
A body made from tried-and-tested mahogany and a set neck made from okume form the basis for this single-cut model. The two Roswell LAF AlNiCo-5 humbuckers are triggered by a three-way switch and deliver the powerful vintage sound you would expect from this type of guitar. The wide range of tonal options is completed by two volume controls with a push/pull function for single-coil operation and two tone controls for dialling in your preferred tone. The narrow C-profile of the neck and its flat body joint provide a pleasant playing feel all the way to the upper register. The laurel fingerboard with its 12" radius and trapezoid inlays is also pleasantly flat and allows fast playing for modern techniques. The DLX Kluson-style machine heads are a truly classic touch and, in combination with the chrome-plated DLX hardware, keep the guitar reliably in tune.
For beginners and single-cut fans on a budget
With its low price, the SC-450Plus is aimed primarily at beginners who have to get by on a small budget - after all, a successful start also requires an amplifier, which also has to be paid for somehow. In return, you get a feature-packed guitar and the feel of an authentic SC-style model, so that you can emulate the sound and look of your idols and start your own sessions. However, it is not only the vintage sound and the classic look that make it appealing; the more modern features - such as the neck's slim profile and flat body joint - also make for a pleasant start. In addition, the tonal flexibility provided by the splittable humbuckers also makes the guitar interesting for single-cut fans who are still looking for a second instrument or backup at an affordable price.

Flexible Rock sounds thanks to splittable humbuckers
A single-cut guitar like the Harley Benton SC-450Plus feels especially at home in Rock music thanks to its two powerful humbuckers. In particular, all of those classic vintage sounds with a lot of sustain can be produced with this guitar. The humbuckers' coil split function makes the guitar even more flexible. Genres like Jazz, Country, and Reggae can also be tackled, as well as a variety of softer sounds - partly thanks to the range of settings available via the two volume and tone pots. This guitar can thus also be used as a flexible and inexpensive backup on stage. In addition, the SC-450Plus can be played for a long time on stage and in the rehearsal room, because it is relatively light despite the solid mahogany body - a feature that might appeal to beginners as well as to most other single-cut fans.
