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.

Everything is super!
Anton Ibragimov 20.08.2021
I wanted to be a rock-star one day. But I only have a classical guitar. And you can't really play rock on it. And not only rock, but also blues, funk, and so on.
And, wandering around the Internet, I came across such a wonderful store - Thomann. I compared and weighed all the prices, and concluded that any product here comes out cheaper than ours in Kazakhstan.
As a result, as a beginner, I chose the budget model. And I never regret it. The build quality is excellent. The guitar looks even better than in the photo. Everything is set up and tightened. Everything sounds great (although I tried it only in 1 combo - Harley Benton HB-15GXD JamBox, but I think it will be fine in any device). Switches, turns on everything as it should.
Conclusion - if you are a beginner, and already a seasoned guitarist - Harley Benton ST-20HSS is a great choice!

Great guitar
Micik 14.12.2017
Bought this guitar a while ago and im using it on a band practice..
Pros:
Finish is amazing.. no rough spots and the burst is really making the guitar shine.. Neck is comfortable c shape..stock pickups were ok but i changed them for emg 81.. which made it sound like heaven..
Cons:
Guitar is after 15 min of playing (i play pretty hard.. so that maybe wont be your problem) out of tune, so you probably have to change tuners and especially nut and seddles.. i dont know why, but i am not able to get the intonation right..

Overall if you put some work into it and do some upgrades it can become high end guitar..

Good for the price
namehaver 17.04.2020
I have had this guitar for I think 9 months and it is good for the price. I have changed the fretboard with my old squires and installed locking tuners plus a floyd rose locking nut and it still went out of tune.

But I have had numerous hours with this guitar, practicing and stuff after all it's a good guitar for the price, but you will be frustrated with how much it goes out of tune. The sound is nice tho.
