A Seriously Great Guitar !
Axepete 02.11.2021
I was the fortunate owner of 4 Harley Benton Tele Style guitars.
The TE52 NA, TE90QM and the Fusion T HH EB OCT
I love each one of them as, collectively, they provide me with a great pallet of sounds.
I thought that would be enough but I kept going back to the Fusion T Roasted FNT, watching reviews on youtube and deliberating on whether I actually really needed this guitar, as it was very similar, in spec, to my existing Fusion T.
I just loved the look of the neck though and the flame top.
I took the plunge on Friday and ordered one. It had to happen lol
I was definitely influenced by the price point, thinking well at not much more than £300, I had very little to loose.
It arrived today and I am absolutely smitten already.
The guitar is a seriously great instrument and, in my opinion, as good a guitar as I have ever played, irrespective of its price.
The roasted maple neck is outstanding and the stainless steel frets, Graph Tech Tusq Nut and Locking Tuners make it a superb playing experience.
The Wilkinson Trem is excellent. The pots and switch feel great and, regardless of what some people say, the Roswell Humbuckers are wonderful. ( I don't know what the detractors are listening to them through but plugged into my Bugerra V22 Infinium they sing beautifully )
Because of the staggered locking tuners, I don't see the need for the two string trees ( but nice to see they are roller trees ... although a single Graph Tech tree would have been better, in my opinion - although this isn't really a quibble, rather a suggestion ) Also, I will be taking one spring out of the Wilkinson Trem ( another personal preference thing ) - other than that, I wouldn't change a thing .
I had to laugh when I took the guitar out of its box, strummed it and it was bang in tune, after a journey from Germany to Nottinghamshire England ? ... amazing ! ... and the dispatch and delivery were very speedy too.
So if you are considering buying a T style guitar with twin Humbuckers and you have a thousand pound budget, do yourself a favour : buy one of these and treat the wife to a new fur coat ! She will love you for it, you won't get nagged and you will have a guitar worth much more than its price point.

Exceptional guitar. Buy it now. Spoken from a professional.
LarryK 15.01.2020
Pros: Easily on par with $900-$1000 guitar range. Flawless neck. Fit and finish is excellent. Roswell pickups are crisp and cut right through. Very easy to dial in a wide variety of rock, jazz, blues, country tones. Action was very playable out of the box.

Cons: One of the the trem claw screw holes was stripped so i replaced both with 2 slightly larger screws (same length). Not a huge issue but it would have become a tuning stability issue down the road. Not worth sending this beautiful guitar back. An easy fix and I'm not a flaw by any means.

What I changed: The trem came with 3 springs and was a bit stiff for me. I like my trems to float and flutter easily like a Floyd - nice and "spongy". I've had several Wilkinson trems and they've all been great. I've had no problem setting these up with 2 springs if you like a similar feel. The bridge saddles are set to be parallel with the guitar which makes the baseplate actually set at a slight angle. I had to lower the saddle height in order to bring the angle of the baseplate parallel. The action on this is incredibly low with zero fret buzz. Incredible. I had people asking to play it who all said the same thing: "Amazing". Bu this guitar now. It is surely one of the best guitar i have ever played and I like my guitars setup a very specific way. It was easy to make some adjustments which is expected. This guitar is nearly perfect except for the screw hole and that is nothing. The cavities were completely clean and groomed well. Seriously - just a beautiful guitar.

What a guitar!
Vlkodlak 28.09.2021
A low cost guitar? Well, I´m sure that this one just costs few euros. But it's great. It arrived 5 days ago. I just lowered the wilkinson tremolo and changed the set of strings, which were really terrible 10s. I put 9-42 daddario NYXL and....that guitar left me with my mouth open. I mostly play my Fender strat (2004) and Ibanez (2003). Fusion T is just different. Everything looks great, neck, locking tuners, fretboard, body, pups.. Sometimes I find myself just holding it in my hands and staring at it. And I'm not a fan of tele guitars. But that one...wow. And - the most important thing - it carries the sound; it plays great not plugged in, it goes great with my BOSS ME80 and my Marshall Origin 50head. I feel fresh and clean and crispy and bright tones, I feel bass tones, everything is great. And I love to use the split coils for many different sound. I was about to buy some "real brand" guitar, but I couldn't do any better than buying this HB. I'm gonna buy another HB for sure. (Sorry for a long text, but I just fell in love)

Shocked
Kimjook 02.01.2020
Received the Guitar, which was in perfect condition and had survived the Journey from Germany to Scotland with no issues.

The build quality and fit and finish is beyond my expectations for a guitar at this price point.
The roasted Maple neck and fingerboard are a joy to play and to look at, superb figuring to neck and fingerboard and again far outweighs its price. Stainless steel frets have been finished impeccably and again at this price point is an astounding feature.

Trem stays in tune well and machine heads do their job well.

Not totally convinced about the pickups yet as have not had a chance to play the guitar at volume through an amp, but they record well in humbucking for split coil mode.

I own a number of high end American made guitars which cost thousands of pounds to buy new and the Harley Benton stands up well against these...I am shocked and more than surprised....this is my first taste of the Harley Benton brand but will most certainly not be my last! A convert for sure!
