My fantasy guitar realized
Treven Kaaby, 14.04.2021
This is the guitar I have been fantasizing about for years. It came perfectly setup for the gauge strings that were on it, but I, being a metal head, quickly took them off, and put on a heavier gauge. I set it back up, and away I went. The only things that "bugs" me, is that the tremolo arm gets loose while usiing it, I need to tighten it all the time, but, that's not Harley Bentons fault. The guitar itself is rock solid. And the other thing is that the volume knobs should have been soldered the other way around. Now the knob closest to your hand, is for the neck pickup, it kinda makes sense, since left knob controls the left pickup, but, when I'm playing, I like to have the bridge pickup knob closest to my hand. That's an easy fix though, just grab a soldering iron and move the cables, or move the whole pots.

It's a bit longer than a regular LP style guitar, around 105 cm, so it wouldn't fit any of the cases I had lying around. So that's one thing to keep in mind.

I would also recommend getting a Floyd Rose intonation key, either Floyd Rose's own, or a third party one. It WILL come in handy when you need to intonate the guitar. I've also gone for the Tremmory stabilizing system, noiseless springs with a heavier tension, and Schaller Sure Claw for easier spring tension adjustment. In time I might upgrade the toneblock too, to try and get some more sustain, it is good, but I think it could be a little bit better. But that's just me.

Überwälltigend
Tremonti1306, 31.03.2021
Ich schreibe eigentlich keine Bewertungen, sondern vergebe nur Sterne, aber hier hat Harley Benton wirklich einen rausgehauen!

Ich habe die ganze Zeit schon mit zwei Gedanken gespielt:
a) eine Gibson Les Paul Custom like Gitarre selbst zu modden (günstigere Ausgangslage und dann mit aktiver Hardware) - die typische Metal Core Klampfe

b) eine Floyd Rose Gitarre zu kaufen.

Hier hat mir Harley Benton dann beide Varianten in einer Gitarre geliefert und ich musste nichts mehr machen. Mit anderen Worten absolute Traumgitarre.

Zu den Schwachstellen muss man sagen, dass der Floyd Rose Tremolohebel leider gewackelt hat. Ich habe diesen mit einem von Schaller ausgetauscht. Die Mechaniken waren leider vom Farbton her nicht genauso gold wie der Rest der Hardware (eher etwas verwaschen und heller). Ich habe mir daher noch welche von Kluson mitbestellt und die originalen dann ausgetauscht. Von Anfang an perfekt eingestellt, Bünde poliert und was soll ich sagen... 5 Sterne für die Qualitätskontrolle und das Team von Thomann! Ich bin einfach nur glücklich! :)

Ein Wort noch zu Harley Benton an sich... Ich fand es richtig witzig, dass man beim Kauf einer Gibson oder Fender viel gröber drüber schaut, wenn man die Gitarre erhält und dann unschönheiten schneller akzeptiert. Gleichzeitig bei einer Harley Benton, aber genauer hinschaut... Da habe ich mich einfach nur gefragt was mit mir nicht stimmt :D Ich glaube wir sollten alle einmal unsere Haltung zu Gitarren überdenken, denn hier haben wie eine deutsche Firma, die absolut geniale Instrumente verkauft und einen richtig richtig guten Job macht und damit anderen Herstellern, die mittlerweile unverschämte Preise aufrufen, richtig die Stirn bieten kann. :)

Ultimatives Rockbrett
Stratoking, 09.03.2021
Hier hat es Harley Benton mal andersrum gemacht. Statt billig - nur vom feinsten. Die bei Tests immer wieder bemängelten Roswell Pickups wurden hier durch EMG Pickups ersetzt. Diese sind ja über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Top Sound on Board.
Schaller Mechaniken und Floyd Rose Tremolo tun hier ein übriges um besste Ergebnisse zu erzielen. Die Gitarre kam perfekt eingestellt vom Thomann Service an und hatte keine Mängel. Sie rockt ohne Ende und steht einer Gibson mit Sicherheit in nichts nach. Ich bin mehr als zufrieden.
