Couple of weeks ago I posted about Harley Bentons from Thomann. I recently sold a couple of bits on eBay and decided to order one with the proceeds. I ordered on Friday and it arrived today. So here are some impressions and quite a lot of photos. Specs - it's mahogany body (3 piece) and three piece mahogany neck. It has a pair of Wilkinson Alnico V pickups, it's also strung with deadario strings. The Guitar cost a whopping £109 with £7 shipping It arrived having travelled from Germany in very cold temperatures and was in tune when I opened it. The fit and finish is great - the back piece joins are a little obvious at the sides - they form the bottom third, middle two thirds and about 1cm of the upper bout. Frets are well finished and level, there are no sharp edges. All the electrics work and the selector switch feels very positive. The neck has a join at the lower heel and about 10 centimetres below the headstock. These joins are done very well. Tuners work, they hold tune but do feel a little cheap. The plastics are a bit cheap and the pickup rings don't match the pick guard very well (Pickguard is coming off anyway and I'll probably change the rings and poker chip). Fretboard has had a spray of dye and it's not especially even - it looks a bit dry and blotchy. This is only a minor issue as it will wear in with play and once I've changed the strings and oiled it all will be fine. All the binding is well applied and defect free. There are a couple of blemishes in the finish - but to be fair I've seen similar on guitars that cost a lot more than this. All in all given the price I paid for it any criticism I have of cheap plastics are little more than minor gripes. Soundwise - nothing to complain about! sounds exactly like it should. The pickups are full and rounded - they sound warm when clean and dirty up brilliantly. I will probably be swapping them out to try some Iron Gears, but if I wasn't going to do that I'd have no problems with the stock wilkos (if you see what I mean). I'm yet to open up and have a look at the electrics, but will in due course. Here are some pics - video will follow as soon as I can get my studio properly setup!!
