Another outstanding guitar at an incredible price!
Mandi V., 15.03.2020
This is my second Harley Benton guitar. My first was the Harley Benton Fusion-II HH FR Roasted FBB, which I was very impressed with. I wrote a review for it, as well, which you can read on the product page. I was hoping that this guitar would be as good as that one. It definitely is.

Just like with my Fusion-II, I could find no finish flaws at all. The color of this guitar looks very green on the product page, but in person, it truly is a turquoise color. That shouldn't have been a surprise, but it was. Just a little bit, anyway. It wasn't a bad surprise, though. It's a beautiful guitar and I'm still very pleased with the way it looks.

The neck is a very fast, satin-finished, delicious-looking caramelized color. The soft V profile makes chording an absolute joy and the moderately flat radius also allows for easy string bending. I've owned dozens of guitars over the past 31 years and this guitar has one of the best necks I've ever played. Yeah, it's really that good.

The pickups were a bit of a surprise, too. I own a somewhat similar guitar, a Yamaha Pacifica 611HFM, which is also a hard-tail guitar with a bridge humbucker and a P90 neck pickup, too. That guitar has Seymour Duncan pickups in it, so it obviously sounds great. To my ears, though, the Roswell pickups in this guitar sound just as good, if not better. Perhaps they're not top quality, but these pickups just seem to match the tonewoods used in this guitar so well that I have no plans to change them.

The coil tap and phase switching makes this guitar very versatile. It can sound bright, warm, loud, soft, and sort of odd with the phase inversion switched on, but all of the sounds are nice and usable. I wish I could say the same for some of my other, more expensive guitars.

The GraphTech nut and locking tuners are very nice touches, as well, and completely unheard of in this price range. My Pacifica has both of these features, too, but it also cost almost double what this guitar did. Kudos to Harley Benton for caring enough to install such quality parts, because the tuning stability is very solid as a result and sometimes that's all a good guitar needs to become a great guitar, like this one is.

Overall, this is an excellent guitar that looks sharp, plays smoothly, sounds sweet, and stays in tune very well. I'm very happy with it.

If you're thinking that this somewhat unusual guitar might be right for you, then you're probably 100% right and I highly recommend it without a doubt.

Extremely Well Built For Price
Hooterville Jimmi , 13.03.2020
I had seen Harley Benton guitars on you tube a few months ago,
At first I just watched, thinking they can not be that good at the price point that everyone was saying, At that time there wasn't a thought in my mind of purchasing one for any reason.
I own 30 plus guitars with a majority of those being Gibson so all though these looked good I was just a sideline watcher.
Knowing that Henning Pauly knows a good guitar when he gets his hands on one, I decided to give has signature Harley Benton a shot, paid the expedited shipping and three days it arrived.
( Now the packing was RIDICULOUS for a package sent around the block let alone half way across the world, Okay, it wasn't that damaged other than a mark on the headstock where the inter box with nothing else around it had flew around in the larger box and wiped out the styrofoam at the end of the box and the headstock ripped through the cardboard).
Pure luck, back to the guitar, simply put its a very beautiful guitar and plays great ,fit and finish are spot on it stays tuned up and sounds great.
Don't know if i will be a repeat customer over the packaging issues.
couldn't imagine buying a top of the line Les Paul and it arriving that way.
In conclusion if you decide to get this guitar you won't be disappointed, ROCK ON

folz, 26.05.2020
beautiful looking
plays very nicely.
great variety of sounds (with the p90 neck, humbucker bridge, and coil taps on both control knobs)
I've had this for 6 months and it is my most played guitar (also have gibson les paul, fender strat and others).
stays in tune well.
fretboard feels nice
bridge is great.
I can't honestly fault this guitar.

Can't believe my eyes and ears!
BernieGriff, 20.11.2019
Having watched the progress of the design of the Harley Benton HP42 signature guitar - I watched Henning play one of the first of the public batch release and promptly ordered one for myself. It was delivered by UPS to my home in Milton Keynes, UK. a week ago and having unwrapped it and stared at the sheer beauty of the build and finish - I allowed the guitar to acclimatise after its 4 days in transit and then picked it up to play. the only strings out of tune were the bottom low E an A - all the others were pitch perfect. I have hardly put this guitar down since - its an amazingly well built musical instrument that doesn't justify its low price. I have PRS core American built guitars and have bought them in favour of Fender and Gibson models, yet this beautiful Harley Benton signature model has cost me less than a PRS SE standard model and sounds more like a full blown PRS core model. All praise to Thomann for offering such quality merchandise at such low price points - I'm now looking to purchase a semi-acoustic model in the very near future!
