A tribute to the classic

Classic looks, classic specifications, classic sound: The Harley Benton TE-52 NA is a typical T-style guitar whose special feature is its price-performance ratio. With an American ash body and a sturdy maple neck and fingerboard, this guitar matches both the characteristics of far more expensive models and the original specifications of its forefathers. Other features include high-quality single-coil pickups from Roswell, D'Addario strings, and vintage-style hardware that sounds as authentic as it looks. This excellent-value bundle version also includes a 12-month subscription to music2me, the largest online German-language guitar school, which offers ambitious beginners as well as advanced players more than 250 guitar lessons that have been specially designed to build on each other.

Solid features

The natural wood look of the ash body features an attractive grain and a high-gloss finish, while the neck has been lightly tinted and sports a matt finish for increased playing comfort. Speaking of the neck: This is constructed from Canadian maple with a glued-on maple fretboard, and the neck profile, while based on the 1950s design of the original, is slightly slimmer to allow for modern playing styles. The design of the bridge allows both string-through-body and toploader stringing methods to be used. Circuitry has been kept very clean and simple: Volume control, tone control, and selector switch. This three-way switch allows the player to flip easily between the pickups, with the “humbucking” middle position suppressing interference. The machine heads have retained their authentic vintage design, and two string trees ensure that the top strings do not come unseated from the nut, even when struck hard. This bundle includes a subscription to music2me, a cleverly structured and pedagogically oriented course that provides video tutorials and additional information to enhance practice and speed up the learning process.

The sound that everyone loves

Pricewise, this guitar is in a range aimed at beginners, but advanced players may also be tempted to get a hold of one if they are looking to add a solid T-style sound to their setup without having to invest too much. If you are more into Classic Rock music, Blues, or Country than Heavy Metal, you will find a more than suitable partner in this guitar. The Harley Benton TE-52 characteristically offers a very direct, bright, and crisp sound (great for these music genres), which is further enhanced by the wood combination and Alnico V pickups from Roswell. The bridge design and metal plate under the bridge pickup also ensure that the sound is not too thin. The structured course from music2me teaches you to play the guitar – or helps you improve your existing playing skills. Lessons are presented via video player, which lets you slow the songs down and play them on continuous loop while practising.

About Harley Benton

Since 1998, the Harley Benton brand has been catering for the needs of numerous guitarists and bassists. In addition to an extensive range of stringed instruments, Thomann's house brand also offers a wide choice of amplifiers, speakers, effect pedals, and other accessories. In total, the range includes over 1,500 products. Built by established names in the industry, all Harley Benton products combine quality and reliability at attractive and affordable prices. The continuous expansion of the range ensures that Harley Benton always provides new, exciting, and innovative products that keep players perfectly in tune with the musical world, day after day.

A simple guitar with many possibilities

Whether as a guitar for rehearsal spaces, as a backup or beginner's instrument, or simply for classic T-style sounds that you can't get with your existing guitar collection, the list of possible applications for a Harley Benton TE-52 is long. And the quality of this model is just as attractive as its price tag. No wonder then that it has been one of the top sellers in this guitar category for years. The classic design means it is also compatible with a large number of parts, including a wide variety of pickups, pickguards, and machine heads, making this a model with considerable potential for customisation. Yet even without any modifications, the TE-52 is still a powerful instrument. For beginners in particular, we recommended one of our bundle deals as an alternative to purchasing the guitar on its own. Or you can put together your own individual Creative Bundle with all the accessories necessary for your setup, such as gigbags, straps, and amplifiers.
