It's not perfect

This is my 1st harley benton guitar. It had to be something good but...

pros: wood work, frets, nothing wrong here. good locking tuners, good nut, ok for 500 EUR guitar

cons: these emg's are really made in Indonesia.
volume and tone knobs are very cheap, toggle switch also feels very cheap.
the worst - bridge pickup was broken. it sounds like single coil pickup and produces a lot of noise. I even though to return back this guitar without any doubts and forget about harley benton for ever but I tried to experiment and dig into it. I changed them, checked wiring, issue was 100% clear - bridge pickup. I took spare emg 81 and problem has gone. Maybe its hard to detect such issues while they checked it in their facility, I do not know, it produced sound but it was wrong sound.
Also, tool for truss rod does not fit.

This is my review after 1 day of usage.


How can this guitar can be as smooth as a +1500€ one?

I've played a ton of guitars and I'm no one to be objective as it's all about feelings. I wanted a baryton guitar for some concerts I wanted to make in 2020 (little did I know), hence this guitar as a test. HB came from being an entry-range to an amazing middlerange quality brand, so... who to trust but not Thomann?

When I first tested this guitar, I simply could not believe it.

PROs :
. So simple to play, makes you feel on a 1500€ guitar easy
. EMG pickups makes it metal but the cleans stay warm and powerful
. Recorded already tons of albums with it and it's holding its shape perfectly
. C o m f o r t a b l e !

. It doesn't hold a perfect perfect tuning but éh, that's really to find something
. I doesn't make my morning tea

. I offered this guitar to my best friend
. Another 2 friends want it
. Everyone who tested it loved it
. Me included


Nothing but almost the best

Not that articulate but I must tell you this is an amazing guitar. I wouldn't change the pickups because they are very dynamic, the neck is flawless, a joy to play, I immediately tuned it B to B and even the factory strings are nice. Stays in tune despite my very hard picking, very well balanced, and gorgeous to boot. I only dislike where the top strap button is so I moved it to the end of the top horn, and I'm currently having issues with the input jack, after getting it in may, and I am in the process of contacting Thomann. Otherwise this guitar is an absolute joy to play.


Not perfect but great for price
