Silver sparkle P90 limited run. Buy it.
WholeLottaHarley 09.01.2021
In my opinion, any review of a Harley Benton guitar should be done through the lens of value for money, and the fact that we can even compare Harley Bentons with guitars costing 10X as much and more is perhaps the best compliment I can give them. So any complaints or criticisms should be viewed in that context.

As for this model, it had me at silver sparkle and P90, and I defy anybody to show me more cool for the dollar. My only regret is that I'm a lefty, so I bought it for my daughter, who loves it for its look as much as I do.

The action is a bit high, but typical for this style of guitar, and it produces a ripping, raw sound with gain, like a Junior should, and from a surprisingly light-weight body. I haven't attempted to lower the action, as my daughter likes it as-is, but this is a great guitar for a beginner, and also a great platform for anyone looking to take it to another level.

I'd give this guitar 5 stars across the board but for the tuners, which I found to be disappointing, not so much for the way they function, which is adequate, as for how they look. They're white plastic, which I expected and is probably period-correct, but viewed in real life they look "cheap" and cast a bit of a shadow on what otherwise appears to be a rather expensive guitar.

All in all, a great, tough to top guitar for the money, and kudos to Thomann for the variety of their offerings, including limited run models like this one. Please keep them coming!

JA
Exceeded Expectations
Jacey A 12.06.2020
I was so ready for this to be a piece of crap, or at best a good guitar to mod/work on. What I actually got was a well set-up instrument that sounds and feels great for less than the cost the majority of pedals. Despite originally ordering this to get Billie Joe Armstrong vibes for a cover band, this has quickly become one of my most used guitars. It's well balanced and light. Although I plan to replace the pickup with a Seymour Duncan, the stock Roswell meets your expectations of a P90, especially if you're running it through a high-quality amp. Only minor gripe is the tuning machines - they are the only part that feels cheap despite matching the look of BJA's silver guitar closely. Will be ordering more of this brand.

I wanted a P90 guitar, but didn't want to pay the Gibson Tax ...
YouLikeItLoud...LoudLikeThis? 04.10.2020
... so I bought this.
So I waited an age for this to be manufactured and shipped because ... sparkle silver ... obviously. :-)

The Junior here is everything I wanted in a stripped-back screamer, but not until I'd fettled and tinkered a bit.

It arrived reasonably set up. No sharp frets and well, she plays, but the action was too low causing fretbuzz in the first few frets on strings 1 and 6. The nut wasn't lubed as far as I could see either. I raised the action a little (super simple - see them big-ass screws on the bridge? loosen the strings and turn them) and it was OK.

Then I snapped the 10 string. Best thing to happen. I changed to 9s, put about a quarter turn on the truss rod to compensate and straighten the visible "hump" in the neck when tuned to pitch, cleaned and oiled the dry fretboard, lowered the action back down 'cos the neck was now straighter and ... my god, she's beautiful. She plays like a dream.
The P90 and the Alpha Pots can be made to scream like a banshee or sing sweetly like a maid.

Happy Days!

TC
Good for the price
The Chemist 16.01.2021
I bought this guitar because I looked for a P90, single pickup, single cut guitar at an affordable price. Overall - it a nice addition to my guitar collection.

the Good - the P90 Roswell sounds awesome!! a grungy, beautiful sound. Great for overdriven punk rock.

the Neutral - *the action was very high and *intonation was a bit off (had to set up the guitar to my preferences)

the Bad - *the back of neck behind the low frets (1-3) and the medium frets (fret 7) has some minor warpage, *the nut is a bit bulgy with sharp edges that can be an annoyance, *the strings were FILLED with grime (my fingers turn black even after cleaning the strings several times).
