I've always been curious when it comes to guitars, effects, amps, etc. that doesn't cost a fortune. I think it's exciting to find out how much difference there is, or not, from a guitar that costs 149£ to a guitar that costs 1500£ So, a couple of years ago i discovered this brand called 'Harley Benton', they made guitars, effects and amps. I read a lot of reviews on those products and saw some videos on YouTube and to my ears, and from reading the reviews, they weren't really a good brand or company. A few years later I found a YouTube Channel with a guy from Germany, who had reviewed 6 of the newer HB Guitars, and from seeing and hearing his videos and comments; I was blown away. The newer guitars from Harley Benton looked so beautiful, even better than a lot of the other cheap-ass-crap guitars to compare with on the market, HB has really cared for the finish, the details and the look of their guitars! After some speculation I decided to buy the Harley Benton L-450 GT P90 - a Les Paul copy w. Wilkinsons P90 pickups - man, I was not disappointed at all! Took it straight out of the box, made some small adjustments, changed the strings, plugged it in and it sounded so warm, sparkly and rock-ish! Just what you normally would expect from a Les Paul guitar! I'm so happy with this guitar and I really want to buy a couple of the other HB guitars at some point. For me I'm not all about the 'speciel name' on the headstock, I just like a guitar that feels good, stay in tune and make my music sing - this guitar does it all! I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars, because some of the wiring and shielding of the pickups isn't that good, but with a little help from some better components or a Noise Gate that problem can be fixed. At least that's what I did! Works like a charm, sounds really good and looks amazing!
