For a long time now, Harley Benton instruments have been known for their high quality and extremely affordable prices. The TE-90FLT Orange Blast is no exception: Tt combines a classic design with exotic woods and a set of FilterTron-style humbuckers, resulting in its powerfully rocking sound. With its Orange Blast finish, the guitar is also a real eye-catcher both on stage and in the living room. In addition, its slim Canadian maple neck allows for comfortable playability, while solid Kluson-style machine heads and a Graph Tech nut ensure optimum tuning and intonation along the entire length of the roasted sungkai fingerboard.
Resonant chambered body
The exotic tonewood ("sungkai") used for the body of the TE-90FLT is an interesting alternative to the woods usually chosen for TE-style guitars. The vibrational behaviour of the wood is supported by the chambers in the body, which on the one hand reduce weight and on the other hand enhance sustain and resonance. The fingerboard with 22 frets, which is also made of sungkai, is set on a neck made of Canadian maple. The heat treatment not only makes it look attractive, but also has a positive effect on the instrument's robustness and tonal behaviour. The two vintage-style FilterTron pickups are also great for rocking the house: Thanks to their ample headroom, they offer a rich sound ranging from silky smooth to rough.
A rocking TE-style guitar at an affordable price
Thanks to the affordable price typical for Harley Benton, the TE-90FLT can be a real catch for all fans of the TE design, who can now get their hands on this classic single-cut instrument while keeping an eye on their budget. Something to note, however, is that instead of the famous "twang" for which this type of electric guitar is perhaps best known, the two Roswell FilterTron humbuckers result in a genuine Rock guitar that covers genres like Blues all the way to Hard Rock. At the same time, the TE-90FLT makes a convincing case with its comfortable playability, enhanced even further by its astonishingly light weight thanks to the chambered body, which will make for downright effortless performances and a lot of pleasure.

FilterTron-style for great sound diversity
If you're looking for a TE-style guitar for tame Country and Western, you'd better consider another instrument. With its Blast finish and reversed headstock in a matched design, it's evident at first glance that the Harley Benton TE-90FLT is firmly at home in Rock genres. Its sound matches its appearance in every way: Here, all tonal facets from crunch to high-gain, are catered for. The two Roswell FilterTron-style pickups deliver a punchy and at the same time precisely defined sound, while the slim C-profile of the maple neck provides the best basis for easy playability, especially for beginners.
