just beautiful :)

the guitar is actually more of a rose gold in real life, depending on the lighting you're in - but it's still absolutely gorgeous.

i am in love with everything about this guitar. the look, sound, functions, playability, everything. it has a nice weight to it as well and looks a whole lot more expensive than it actually is, especially in pictures/videos. it did arrive with a good few imperfections around the neck but it really isn't very noticeable and has no effect on the sound so i don't mind too much. overall just a great buy. well worth waiting 2 months for it to finally be available on thomann

T
Deluxe is oddly unDeluxe
Tallshrew 27.04.2021
Neck on the "Deluxe" model is (oddly) less impressive than on cheaper Harley Benton ST62s; it has not the quality gloss finish and the fret ends are a bit spikey. Strange really that the glossy neck wasn't chosen for this model as it is based on David Gilmour's white ST which does have a glossy neck. Sloppily, some of the screw holes for attachment of the scratchplate (pickguard) have not been lined up perfectly thus there are screws which sit proud at untidy angles. Quality control has to be questioned as the pickup selector on mine would not select bridge pickup (either alone or with middle) until I fixed it with some switch cleaner and wear.
Well that's the negative out of the way, now the positive. Plays and feels good, tuners are good quality and hold tune, vibrato bridge is fine and works well. It sounds great, like a real ST which is certainly not a given with even more expensive ST types. Pickups are good, no need to change but if you do then the guitar is a great basis for such experimentation. Other than what I have already pointed out the finish is good, Olympic White being a slightly yellow white somewhere between White and Vintage White. All the gold plate and anodising may not be to everyone's taste but is in keeping with Gilmour's ST.
Summarising: as stated above, not quite all it should be but a jolly good instrument at a great price that will suit students and experienced alike. My advice unless you are in love with this model's finish maybe consider one of the cheaper Harley Benton ST62s instead of this Deluxe.
UPDATE: I've now had the scratchplate off to inspect the electronics. Predicatably there is an import type PCB selector rather than a blade type which is fine for me. Very pleasantly surprisingly, the pots are full size (!) and there are two (green) tone capacitors, one for each tone pot both unusual for budget guitars. Perhaps there is more than meets the eye to the "Deluxe" tag.

Worth every penny and more

The all 5 star is on the price of this guitar, and what you're getting for the amount it costs, you could not give it any less than five stars for everything. There are a few minor issues like the gold looks cheap close up but back up a little bit and it looks absolutely gorgeous, the main issue I have with this is the tremolo block is a much smaller block than in the photo of this guitar, apart from that at this price point you can not expect more, and the best thing about this guitar is the playability, and this is the most important thing for any guitar, it doesn't matter how much you spend on a guitar if the playability is bad you're not going to enjoy playing it as much, or you'll be struggling with it, possibly fighting with it at times, and that's exactly what you don't want when your learning to play.
Harley Benton has not just made a copy of an Stratocaster they've also put their own stamp on it like the radius and the neck shape, so bear that in mind that it has a few of its own original views on the ST.
Well done Harley Benton for not just copying but putting your own spin on a classic with playability that I'm just going to enjoy for the rest of my days because this guitars going nowhere.
