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.
