Quality at a Great Price
Many Guitar Guy, 24.10.2018
Played for many years and wanted another comfortable fixed bridge instrument for live playing. Have been thinking Harley Benton for a while and decided to take the plunge!
Arrived from Thomann in 5 days. The nerves of ordering online soon dissipated on unboxing of the guitar.
The finish and look of the guitar are stunning! The flame cap is really good and the back of the guitar shows the wood grain. I can find no flaws in the finish and the back of the neck is silky smooth and the join to the body really nice.
The hardware looks and feels high quality, Grover machine heads work perfectly. Tone control works well not making the sound muddy. Roswell pickups sound fine..designed by Aliens so they must be OK. Not sure it would be worth the expense of upgrading them but some may want to do that at a later date.
The setup was fine out of the box. also the guitar is perfectly balanced..no neck diving here!

In the interest of fairness I will try to list the cons and I am being really picky!
Three of the strings were almost a semi tone out of tune.
The truss rod cover does not fit flush with the headstock.
A couple of the frets at the high end could maybe do with one rub with a nail file at the edge.
And as with any guitar that has been stored and shipped the neck needs some lemon oil.
I did say really picky because that is the only way I could find any issue with the instrument.
Highly recommended for anyone that wants a quality instrument that can compete easily with another with E or F on the headstock even a cheaper G for a third of the price.

Thanks to Thomann and whoever made this particular instrument.

I feel a collection coming on!!

Fantastic Guitar
TB TB TB, 12.08.2018
Having been a professional musician (bass player), recently releasing a solo album, and having been a Degree level tutor, the one thing I felt I needed was to champion a cause. I found a cause during my years as a Music Technology and Performance department head, it upset me to see students unable to afford decent quality instruments in order to engage with their courses. I recently discovered Thomas and Harley Benton. Having already bought the delicious CST-24T, I followed up by getting the XT-22. These are perfect guitars for the learners I taught. I wish I had discover these amazing guitars earlier. I found both the CST-23T and XT-22, brilliant for the cost; really easy to play, fabulous to look at have inspiring to play and create. I could not honestly discuss any cons to to these instruments, as they fit like a glove and sounded very professional. The build quality is astounding considering the price. The XT-22 has an identifiable sound contrast the CST-24T, which makes owning both very worthwhile. Finally, it would have been cool to have the same brushed metal hardware that is on the XT-22, on the CST-24T.
Love em!. TB

Nice surprise
Staritrg, 22.07.2019
Received my xt-22 black cherry last week, just like the seller promised. The shipping box was slightly damaged on one corner, so I was a bit anxious to see if the instrument was also damaged and to my relief: no. On careful examination I could not find any blemishes or other deficiencies on this guitar. I even took it to a luthier not far from my home to see if he found any reason to have a professional set up. After looking it over carefully and taking some measurements, he said “you’ve done very well. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix. I have seen some horror stories with setups from well known manufacturers but yours looks good”.
It’s hard to believe there are still bargains out there, and I have to admit that I was reluctant and sceptical but Thomann has made me a believer in good service and a good quality instruments still available if one is willing to take a chance.

XT eedingly good.
KatnissKiss, 11.05.2020
Amazing quality looks and feels amazing. What makes this Guitar so mm mmm is the Brushed silver- steel- aluminium ?? pickup covers and bridge and tuners, really make this model for me stand out. Typical sounding pickups same as most roswell pu's you find so nothing that special, but on looks alone it's a stunner. All pro's not real con's i can think of does what it's supposed to, only real thing i can say about it re that i do wish the pickups were more-powerful. as coil split/tapped they are tinny and harsh.
