A Lot For Not A Lot
15.10.2016
First I would like to thank Henning Pauly who did a great job of reviewing this guitar on youtube. If you are considering buying one of these check out his video as well as reading owner reviews.

By way of background, I have owned and played professionally a 70's hardtail Fender Strat, a 90's Strat Ultra and a Tom Anderson hollow drop top Classic. I have sold all of these as I was leaving the UK to work abroad permanently and for the last fourteen years I have been using modelling guitars exclusively for work. Coming up to retirement I decided to build up a collection of guitars for self amusement and have picked up some amazing instruments, many at smile - inducing low prices. The only Strat I had was a Vintage V6 with maple fingerboard which is a worthy instrument but as all my expensive Strats had rosewood or Ebony boards I decided after seeing Henning's video and the pricetag to Give the HB a try.
The bridge and Jack socket plate look cheapish and the scratch plate is sitting proud at the treble horn. The tremelo block looks very thin but I am keeping it hardtail so cannot comment on it's worth. Remember the price and read on. The rosewood board smells strange but I have this on another chinese guitar and once cleaned and oiled it should even out, however the board itself is one of the nicest pieces of rosewood I have seen on a guitar, It goes from dark brown to an almost Rickenbacker orange in a nice marbled style.

Out of the box the guitar plays beautifully and sounds like a Strat. The rosewood board is like an old friend to me already. The Wilkinson pickups look like they may be less expensive than the ones on the Vintage guitar but both sound great. The controls work well and I love the pickguard which is almost flame like and on arrival there was a double layer of protective plastic covering it! The neck is poly coated but still really smooth under your hand. I love the weight and at 3.3 Kg it is one of the lightest and most comfortable guitars I have played on a strap. It sounds and plays better than my 70's Strat, sounds more Strat like than my Ultra with Lace Sensors and while not as good or flexible as the Tom Anderson, it didn't cost two and a half Grand!!! I would be perfectly happy using this instrument live!

Summing up, anyone who plays guitar and is looking for a Strat-a-like has an incredible range af makes and prices to choose from but unless you are looking for a unit with a quality Tremolo Bridge for dive bombing you should give it a try and if you don't like it, at this price hang it on a wall as decoration.

Wow! Just Wow!
ProfWacko, 24.02.2021
I had no idea this guitar would be this good.

I had a '66 Fender Strat that I bought new that got away in the past, but this guitar is a far better Strat than my old original one.

The neck feels better and the overall tone is much better than my old guitar was.

Totally amazing at this price point.

Rene Anton , 16.02.2021
Very Happy with this 62 St.. keeping it short this guitar is just great , no need to file frets , i have hire end guitars , but don't let the price fool you , i use 10's so just changed strings set it up the way i like my playing action.. and it can compete with the rest .. Great feeling neck and finish ... Highly Recommend if you love strat style bodies and want to dive in .. Great Work Harely Benton !!! only one thing i should ad the tuners are vintage and that's great .. they take a little to get use too. but the GTR keeps in tune !!

Let me start by saying I'm impress by your delivery time to Barbados in about two weeks during a pandemic. Fantastic . I like the weight and feel of this guitar. I am still working on getting the guitar to how I would like it to play and feel. Considering the price I think it's a great instrument. I would recommend buying this guitar to any one. PROS: Nice neck , Bridge and saddles, Pickguard , Volume and Tone Knobs, Fantastic body finish. Just as good as a top of the line instrument. CONS: Machine Heads , Frets not polish.
