This is a fabulous guitar for the price. The finish is flawless and is one of the few solid color finished guitars I own. It is a great color. I didn't think the super access heel would make much of a difference but it really makes playing up the neck easy and fast. The headstock is quite nice considering there are only so many ways to change the headstock. The diamond design is very cool. Even nicer that the "G" word diamond, IMHO. It needed only minor adjustments on the set up. It has a good low end growl and a very warm mid range. Action was low. Frets are even and well polished. It weighs a bit more than my other Les Paul' but I will be sitting most of the time so that makes no real difference. I am very excited about this purchase. So much so, I just purchased 4 more Harley Benton guitars with cases for my 2 boys. Yes, I bought them 2 each. The people at Thomann have been wonderful. They have responded very quickly to my questions and have been professional and polite. You can't go wrong with this purchase. Looking for more gear now!!!


Unbelievable playing

This was my second HB guitar. So I was expecting a lot. I was not disappointed. This guitar feels like a dream. It plays amazingly smooth and looks cooler than an ice berg. The fretboard and neck feels fast and comfortable. The unique cut on the set neck looks beautiful, and looks like it has more contact between the body and neck, making it stronger. Love this guitar.


Great value!!!

What can I say. After reading lots of reviews online I took the plunge and bought this guitar. I have been playing guitar now for 48 years and have had many guitars during that time. I currently have 8 guitars now including a Gibson Les Paul Custom but I can honestly say this HB is my favourite to play. I had pre conceived ideas that I would have to change out the pickups on this but can honestly say the pickups are really good.

Just a couple of very small issues (which won't spoil things for me) The Gold coloured Bridge and Tail piece are slightly different colours and the pickup selector switch wiggles about ( I am going to replace it) The tuning heads are okay and hold tuning but aren't brilliant, something else I may change in the future. BUT, and I say that in capital letters, this a £149 guitar!!!!!!!! Great, great value for the money even with a few very small niggles

Buy one, you won't be disappointed!


Killer Guitar for the money!

This guitar plays, sounds, and feels about as good as it looks. I’m not talking Gibson Custom Shop like quality but definitely along the lines of Epiphone. The neck profile actually feels a lot better than Epiphone’s slim D profile neck as it has a bit more meat to it. The fretboard kind of resembles a form of Ebony but very dry. The pickups actually sound good; clear and defined. They are warm and seem to be low output but sustain notes really well. The finish on mine was almost flawless with a minor paint run on the binding issue but not a big deal. Thomann set this guitar up perfectly achieving low action with no fret buzz with what seems to be cheap 10-46 strings that will need to be changed. Did I mention the guitar stays in tune! I strongly recommend this guitar for your first guitar or another to add to your arsenal.
