    Harley Benton E-1335 IIPublished on 03/25/14 at 17:29
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Perfect visual finish.
    BUT a truss the road is useless: the neck is straight and the truss road is completely unscrewed.
    Hopefully the handle never bomb ..
    The knobs, checked the ohmmeter are very poor quality.

    UTILIZATION

    Comparing with ES335, the handle is good, but less comfortable, less easy, less feeling.
    Originally, there was no real sound.
    I will explain later.

    SOUNDS

    Originally, it's not a good sound.
    No attack, no volume, no singing, no feeling ..
    It's just the guitar for very beginner.
    A day of free time, I completely dismantled the microphones and I threw the boards.

    Bad wound, poorly assembled a rusty hair, normal that it does not go.
    I tried with Epiphone boosted: surprise, it sings well, not very accurate but homogeneous, dynamic, its nice, not round
    Needless to 57 Gibson finesse microphones reveals gaps guitar.
    Frustrating, bad combination.
    If you can also change the mail.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Paid € 40.
    Change the microphone, and you will discover a very honest guitar for its price.

    the sound is quite nice on the other hand for a guitar of this price range.

    1 year after edit:
    the guitar is not as comfortable to play my gibson sg standard, the handle is a bit thick for my taste, access to treble is very good, but it's not a shredder guitar, the guitar is quite heavy (like any ES335) but the sound is very good! I think it's a great todo! I have since changed the pickups with GFS dream90 and AC makes it really great, I play almost as much with my gibson sg std my harley benton ES335

    SOUNDS

    The guitar is very typical blues hot, she knows how to jazzy
    I used a lot in arpeggios, but also in crunch ben dirty.
    (Microphones large single coils do not have the shiny side of simple fender, it's finally as p90 gibson what) I play on my engl screamer 50 watt 2X12 + engl vintage 30.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Q / P genial see exceptional for a 2nd (or 3rd for me) guitar.
    it has the geule, it sounds nice by regulating the handle, the height of the strings and changing the strings (it is fear factory setting)

    after a year it is still in very good condition, the origins are well meaniques the agreement, the plastic nut seems quite convenabe, the finish is remarkable for this price!
    I tested a 2400 Gretch euros at the same time that this guitar (directly to the store thomann)
    and frankly even if it is not in the same range of the guitar does not understand the difference in price,

    with the experience I redeem 2 or 3 to customize (reglercorrectement, change the pickups and string) to sell four times the price!
    I'll probably indulge me a copy of telecaster that I will also customize Harley benton.

    The quality of materials, manufacturing and finishing seems more than acceptable, it's not high art (a few micro defects imperceptible ...) but do not forget that this scraper is sold a ridiculous price. I give 10 given the price

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is the kind Maousse has not please everyone but I like personal.
    Level ergonomics can not say, as a stratum is a skyscraper that is oublier.Dej the shape of the body is rather cumbersome, but mostly she weighs the weight (well over 5 kg), therefore, the also for the fans.
    The main drawback is that the guitar is no rule book, so it's not out of the box top ... This by the way there should be a change of strings, the originals are really zero (especially a lousy shooting them). Personal I put a set of 11-48.A time rule is niquel .
    I put 7 only for the history of the setting (a shame that thomann do ...), it offers the option not to death but has put off a lot of people, especially beginners (but explains also the price of the intrument amazing ...)

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are varied and quite nice, it was my corespondet attentes.Faut that was scratching my acists low-end (!) And thus has played on a behringer change.Je AC108, with the neck pickup sounds are warmer, rather typical jazz / clean sounds. The pickup is going well for sounds more blues / rock and distos.J 've also test by connecting a pedal Ibanez classic metal, so grossse distortion, and I found it sounded nice, especially with long sustain resonances and to summarize particulieres.Donc sounds pretty versatile thanks to the different configurations of micro possible. The level of sotie microphones is also quite high they are slightly saturates the clean channel of my ampli.Je not elaborate more because my skills are guitaristic limits.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It is not very long as I have this grate so my opinion is ammen to evolve.
    I would love to try other guitars of the same kind to make me notice it more detaill.Je think neamoins worth the shot and did not have much concurrency in this slice of prix.Quand j 'I placed the order I was nervous to be back with something really cheap but really not at all, I think even that is not absurd to customize with microphones it almost as expensive .
    In conclusion this is a great value for money, if the basic settings were correct shoeing a good first guitare.Pour my part I would say that this is my first real electric grate!

    Manufactures in China and shows!
    the finish is ok but nothing special.
    acastillage the chrome is clean and the assembly is correct, only one of dtails (forgive that for the price) are dsagrables.
    finishing the race is really average.

    UTILIZATION

    It is especially in the neck that way: the key is in "Rosewood", but probably from China. it has a smooth, plastisque. the worst is the very touch dsagrable (the bends, hai hai!). the shape of the handle is dja like, well rounded and well balèze.
    the action is low and the strings do not frieze.

    SOUNDS

    I buy to play the blues.
    I plugged into my head lamp epiphone.
    and oddly I have not the sound I expected: the sound is clear, precise and clean like a single coil. it's nice to have a sound jazz, country.
    but I have not found the crunch, the mdiums, the roundness of the double coils.
    I did a test: with the same setting amp, my strat crunch while the ES is clear and when I plugged my piphone with gibson pickups ...
    the sound is enjoyable, clean, Dfine, hair flapping.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a review "hot" I have the guitar for a good Journe.
    for the price of nine there is no competition.
    The most dsagrable is the key. the rest is nice.
    the sound is not typical as I imagined, typical single coil.
    my first was a "JF1 peavey exp" bought substantially the same price used computer, there's no photo, harley benton makes hardware cot and sounds of the peavey is the level of an epiphone.
    I do not have that choice would do, even if it is not CHRE, has not everything. micro can change (GFS) but the rest (the key). in the 200 I would go for a Ocassion a piphone DOT.

    Made in China!
    This is a guitar that throws, especially if you like the vintage style.
    The Flame is beautiful, it goes from dark brown to orange / yellow.
    So look side, we are very much worth the money (177 E Thomann).
    The handle is mounted on a central beam that runs through this guitar quite heavy
    to handle large, but not thick either.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very nice, is shrinking medium / original proper.
    on the other hand, obligatory passage in the luthier (about 50 euros)

    to correct frets. Believe me, you will not regret it,
    will improve incredibly touching and delightful: Action lowest
    no more curly (some curled at the origin).
    The original strings are put directly into the garbage, as the voltage is
    low. Put some good strings 11-47, it has nothing to do.
    The original pickups are of rather poor quality, no depth.
    Replace them with GFS Dream 90 type Guitarfetish.com home (no more than 20 euros!)
    they will restore their former glory to your Herley Benton!
    I put as note 9 (after processing), but this is strictly home a 5.

    SOUNDS

    You understood, this guitar is purchased with in mind the mods I'm talking about above: luthier, new strings, new pickups. Once done, you
    get a guitar is absolutely fantastic: very enjoyable to play, its crystalline
    and deep, look extremely attractive.
    Keep the original guitar is strictly a mistake not to. It has
    great potential, just waiting to blossom. All for a very budget
    reasonable or ridiculous purchase 177 + 50 + strings luthier 20 + 50 = 300 euros microphones
    for a result which I am extremely satisfied.
    And if you combine this guitar to a Line6 pod type Pocketpod (which simulates amp and effects strikingly), you can play with all types of sounds. The clean sounds are very well rendered (you love the Beatles?).

    OVERALL OPINION

    Purchased eight months ago, I am particularly pleased with this purchase.
    Ok, the guitar needed transformations, it is impressive and quite heavy
    (Normal, since it is a copy of Gibson vintage guitar E 335), but it has
    the sound that I wanted to achieve, it is very enjoyable to play, and his violin is wonderful. For some we take for G and J Harrison Lennon!
    As I said last time, we must anticipate in advance budget for the
    mods listed above. Otherwise, it's like driving a nice car with tractor tires!
    Of course I do it again this choice. I also bought a copy Hofner violin Chez Harley Benton (the Beatbass), the comments are exactly the same: great potential, but
    must know in advance with a reasonable budget is literally trnsforme
    guitar!

This may be normal for this type of guitar (ES 335) but I find abte.

    UTILIZATION

    - The handle is it enjoyable?
    A great round, smooth, fairly wide (for big fingers like me is a plus) but just enough.
    - Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
    No problem, because the body is pretty much as is dcoup and a handle al the heel is thin enough.
    - Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
    It stings the nose a bit because the second button-fastening strap on the heel of the neck and not on the "horn" (a being said?). With a big leather strap was expected to rise. As for weight, I have a fender bass and precision, while the weight of this guitar, ah ah!
    - Gets it easy to sound good? ...
    It plutt a surprise considering the price of the guitar. Yes, but it's true that one wonders if the pickups are humbuckers really: they sound fine crystalline plutt.

    SOUNDS

    - Appropriate are your style of music?
    I admit that I took this MODEL
    1 - because it is beautiful
    2 - Unplug because I'm using guitar folk (yes it's not good, but home studio has trs well)
    APRS to say I have a style ...
    - With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    the classic overdrive lgre or a little more pronounced (no saturated fat, got by, but it supports without problem), pitch shifter, delay, or clear
    - What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
    Not too fat, so plutt lens (not as a tlcaster even when, but we are not in the Les Paul for the big sound)
    - What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
    Well, in short, it sounds really better than the price I pay

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    4 months, it is not my Premire scratches though. Before I had a guitar that cost me much more expensive and sounded better, but ugly silent cry I do not play often at all. That the principle is much less, but I like it, and gives no desire to touch it.
    - What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    it is beautiful and well finished plutt. Good point: it comes with an impeccable rglage: nothing frieze, no protruding fret, bridge rgl-haired. Only thing: the low E string is a bit dull (this is said the original strings and they gain currency be.)
    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    A little ...
    - How do you report qualitprix?
    Very good! It is also pretty far as SRP, the finish is good except for a few little tricks, like bits of plastic stuck under the screws, or stuff like that.
    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
    Yes, or a vintage peavey generation but I lose the ct 'sche guitar "when she is unplug.

    Guitars Thomann only sold by mail order in France and manufactured in China (probably by the poor people very badly paid and exploited amply given the price but I am not as other more expensive models are not as prepared under the same conditions with the only difference being much higher margins for intermediaries?).

    This guitar is an imitation of a Gibson ES 335 with two humbucking pickups, a three position selector switch, two volume knobs and EQ with microphone.

    It is cherry red. On the site of thomann red is a bit more burgundy than the one I received that is closer to a bright red. About Me I am okay but this may surprise.

    It is cherry red. On the site of thomann red is a bit more burgundy than the one I received that is closer to a bright red. About Me I am okay but this may surprise.
    The general appearance is very nice.

    UTILIZATION

    Compared to the price, I find the qualities of this guitar quite interesting. There are some slight defects in execution (traces of glue, varnish Fretboard somewhat rude) but really nothing very serious and certainly not more than more expensive models see a lot more expensive.
    The fingerboard is a little dry for my taste but with a bit of time it will improve. The profile of the handle is round and thick but the style of guitar that wants that makes sense. Access to acute is very correct. The frets are properly installed. The guitar sounds right.
    Overall, during the delivery, the guitar was pretty well settled. We must change the game to put a rope pulling harder.

    In sound and unlike other reviews, I find very acceptable quality microphones. They have a lot of dynamics. The microphone is acute may be a little late but it is also what model of guitar that does it. This is not an LP. on the other hand to make Chuck Berry is flawless.
    I like the middle position with both pickups for blues wish. The microphone allows serious obviously go to the Jazz.

    SOUNDS

    This guitar suits my style and my style is anyway to find music that inspires me each new instrument.

    I use it directly into the computer with Fender tube amp that is tasty as desired.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this guitar to try the product Harley Benton and realize their values ​​in relation to a price that seems ridiculously cheap (175 € guiare the sole or 205 € with the case which is also very good ).

    The result for me is really stunning. This guitar is pretty good. The look is very nice, the sound is correct, the round is quite playable. One criticizes the appearance of plastic knobs which is very cheep.
    Short but fun in perspective. I feel that I will take others. They may ultimately be just by decorating my studio but at this price it's not so ruinous as decoration.

    The ergonomics are quite good, the guitar is pretty well balanced even though it is a bit heavy.
    The access to the treble is very easy.

    SOUNDS

    The pickups have a basic sound rather cold and metallic, having said that I could not really test it on very good amp (only a 15 watt amp harley benton ... the clean sound is ok, but that one tries to push a little more overdrive AC quickly becomes rough and I had better results with an amp marshall ms 4).

    Basically do not expect to play metal on it, it is oriented blues / jazz. Can be obtained relatively easily pop / rock friendly.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 3 / 4 months and this is my first electric guitar (I also own an Ibanez acoustic).

    As was said before you have to buy a head of forecast heavy work on it. in that sense I do not advise as a first guitar but rather as a second purchase.
    The basic settings are abominable and microphones rather bad.

    His big positive point is its price and its look.

    At the time of purchase I hesitated a lot between it, and a Hagstrom Ibanez. With the experience I rather regret my purchase.
    Even if her look is very nice I now realize that between the money I spent on arranging and its base price I could be buying something better.
