Really nice guitar
Yngvarr, 07.10.2020
While I did contemplate buying one of Harley Benton guitars at some point in time, there are few models I like, it wasn't suppose to happen just now. Neither was I looking to buy another T-style guitar. But when I saw this one, I just could not resist. I just had to have it.
So, it came today and it didn't disappoint me. That wood is absolutely beautiful, together with that dark orange colour satin finish. It is to note that colour in product images are more yellow, while actual finish is more orange, at least the one I got. Grain is different from images above, but it is expected that different pieces of wood will have different grain. It is a three piece body. You can see that if you look for it, but grain is matched well enough not to be obvious. In addition to looks, I really like the sound of the pickups and see no reason to change them any time soon. If you want to hear how it sounds, there are enough demonstrations on YT for this model (other finishes).
Is it perfect? Not at all. Tuners are somewhat stiff, but they still do the job. Action is relatively high, but playable anyway. Frets are uneven and thicker strings tend to buzz, but fret ends are done well enough. Good setup and bit of a fret work is required, which I will do myself, but once done it will be a fantastic instrument. Keep in mind that both fretwork and action will very probably differ between units so YMMV.
There is a dent in the edge of the fretboard between the nut and first fret on the bass side. I believe it is something that accidentally happened during production or packaging. Very probably just one-off and is not to be expected normally, but at this price range such things can happen. I don't mind because it is just a visual blemish that isn't obvious. Because of this and few other light unobtrusive imperfections I give one less star for quality.
I like the neck shape, too, but, as many other things (action, tone, ...), it is matter of preference.
The only thing I plan to change in a foreseeable future is a black plastic pickguard for black anodized brushed aluminum one.

So good, so happy
Daly, 18.10.2020
My first HB guitar. Totaly suprised how good look, feel and play is. So glad i decided to give HB a chance.
Body: Nice, smooth, silky feel. Too bad I get version with less orange but still it's a great looking guitar.
Bridge: Great. Works ok and looks ok. Nice spot to palm rest.
Pickups: Great. I do love that sparkly sound of these Roswell Filtertronic pickups. They have nice bite and clarity and fit my setup perfectly. (Marshall JVM with 4x12 Greenbacks 25)
Elektronics: Great. I measured pots with instrument...no complaints. They do job fine and even have less tolerance than a spare CTS i have on stock. Nice feel when rotating. Perfect middle i would say.
Neck & fretboard: Wow wow...and wow. Fantastic silky and smooth finish. Beautifull natural finish. Shape is a bit slimmer than a standard Fender C profile. Really comfortable to play. I like it. Only 3 frets needed partial sanding. No sharp edges - perfect fret ends. Fretboard was dirty and all frets needed polishing but i am not counting that as a bad thing. Mine, much more expensive guitars had same issues.
Nut: Perfectly cut.
Tuning machines: This is the only part of guitar that is not good. Hard to rotate tuners and set intonation but once set they keep tuning great. This is the only thing I will change in near future, not because they don't work but because I want smoother feel when setting intonation.

Why I gave 4 stars on quality?......Because of tuning machines and because one screw hole on neck pickup were drilled on an angle and I couldn't move pickup in both directions. I drilled new hole nearby and now pickup screw works as it should.

Would I buy HB again?.....Already did :) HB SC Special.

Rock on!

Blown away!
Happy :) , 04.05.2021
This will be a gift but I couldn't resist trying it. It took 10 minutes to fine tune the setup (after a 4000 mile trip and climate shift) then everything was perfect. Frets were great, no finish flaws and it sounded great into my BOSS Katana. What more can you ask for at this price. GREAT JOB THOMANN!

Every bit as good as expected and beyond!
theophanya, 15.10.2020
I couldn't be more pleasantly surprised by the looks, the tone, the setup and the sustain on that puppy. The body had a dent or two, but I don't care too much - you'll inevitably bump your guitar into stuff along the way. Wonderful instrument that just screams PLAY ME! Haven't had any XP with these kind if pickups before but I like them a lot - chimey without being tinkerish or harsh. Tuning pegs are quite stiff, but they get the job done. Do not hesitate - get them while they last!
