A sound laboratory
Alex the strummer, 25.09.2020
To be true, it is my first electric instrument and I have only positive impressions about it. As I used to play acoustic guitar it was important for me to try as much as possible versatile instrument to understand if electric is mine, and I made the right decision when chose the Harley Benton ST-20HSS SB Standard Series. After several months, of course, I want some more and sometimes look for more advanced instrument, but then I take this guitar in my hands and understand that I didn't try this or this... It is amazing, and by this I remembered my teenages when I got my first classic guitar :)

To criticize I should only mention (1) some negligible cosmetic roughnesses (but they are almost invisible), (2) a bit angled neck (the fat E string sometimes goes out from neck on higher frets) and (3) some instability in the tone controls work in the neck-mid position (in the beginning sometimes they did nothing in this position, sometimes worked correctly, but today its ok, what was the reason I don't know). Netherless, all these critic comments are nothing at the background of overall price/quality relation.

Okay For Beginners But..
Like A Falling Stone, 28.02.2021
The price and look are the only pros. I'm not very experienced but it doesn't sound like a strat. I have not played one but just according to my listening experience. I'm only using a Boss Katana Mini though.
The biggest con for me was the sharp edges on the frets. It hurts my hand and prevents me from playing it fully. As I'm not very handy I've damaged the fretboard while unsuccessfully trying to file the edges.
Also, it doesn't hold the tuning very well.

Great instrument and price
Cossack-HD, 18.03.2021
This is a very good electric guitar for a beginner.

The strings are close to the fret board and don't require tedious height readjustment (at least it was good enough for me). I did some simple tuning and it was all good.

The frets are all even in height, well finished and the width is good.

The instrument isn't "noisy" even when used in front of a PC (where it could be affected by RF signals and induction), but a higher quality shielded cable is very recommended.

The tremolo and the tonality switch along with the knobs are good to have.

I'd say it needs slightly better packaging as the guitar head's pointy end managed to crush plastic foam and almost got out of the box during shipping, but the guitar was shipped over long distance, so guess it's OK.

Great guitar for that money
Stanislav G, 13.04.2021
the only thing that bugged me is the quality of plastic part. While the wood looks and feels very good, the quality of plastic knobs is terrible. And i know that plastic knobs dont affect the playing, but c'mon, really? HB made a decent guitar and all of that nice impression was spoiled by plastic knobs. Make the guitar 2 eur more expensive, but provide it with decent furniture
