vidroczky's review"Good, but needs some TLC"

Harley Benton L-450Plus
I'm always use TH program, running on a PC, and choose 'Guitar Hero' preset for this solo



Of course, the intro was played with neck position pick up, and the solo with bridge. :-)

This solo was played by user preset, it's hard to tell you the details :-(



In overall, the guitar looks great, and sounds great (Thanks to Wilkinson PU) but there is some buzzing here and there, and some imperfection on the finish. But it does not matter for the prize.

+
Mahogany body
Set mahogany Long Tenon neck (three piece with scarf joint)
REAL maple cap
Beautiful AAA veneer
bounding all around the body, and neck
Wilkinson PUPS
Made in Korea switch

-
poor tuners
mini potmeters
lack of set up and fret finishis
artificial mother of pearl inlays

That's all. Anyway, all in all, it's a great deal for the price, better then Epiphone Studio, almost Epiphone Standard.

UTILIZATION

Handle relatively thin, very nice and easy to play. No need to adjust delivery (fluke!). Significant weight, more power to sustain!

SOUNDS

Very good performance of micro Wilkinson, especially the bridge pickup for saturations. Between modern and vintage.

OVERALL OPINION

Guitar that I liked to have started! The appearance is neat, the guitar is very nice, not seen defects. Just for that price the quality offered is amazing. I enjoyed myself with, I sold there are few (with some regret) to a good friend who wanted to put on the electric guitar and has a great deal.

strathamer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent!"

Harley Benton L-450Plus
It is a Chinese guitar whose price / quality ratio is pretty amazing. The body is mahogany, the neck too (set neck) with rosewood and maple (not veneer, real maple). The table is in two parts on mine but the body is in 4 parts. It did not take him to sustain the contrary, it lacks nothing. The table is really pretty.

The pickups are Wilkinson who do well the job. They have their little character, a good density (often microphones cheap guitars sound hollow, this is not the case here).

The only weak point is the Mecas, they play but they still hold good agreement. There is absolutely nothing to change the purchase.

Some kinks very serious but not finishing is a skyscraper at 148 €, hence my 8/10 which is to take proportionately.

UTILIZATION

Although very nice touch dry at the reception shaft. A little bit of Lemon Oil and the problem is solved.

A tone setting and action were good and we understand that we have to do it yourself for the price.

It is enjoyable to play. The form is the actual form of LP.

SOUNDS

I play blues-rock, rock, hard rock and manages everything. I plugged in a Blackstar HT-60 on a cab Artisan 412. It sounds very correctly. She did not blush to guitars that cost ten times the price even if it does not equal. In the blind test, I'm sure deceive guitarists ...

OVERALL OPINION

Price / quality excellent, even unbeatable. It was a real guitar that sounds in his hands. Personally, it was a test without believing and I do not regret my purchase. I'll serve as a basis for customization. I made a test video you can see here if it tells you:


A + ;-)

SlapKid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Money sidereal unbeatable!"

Harley Benton L-450Plus
Mine is a hb for Honeyburst, absolutely beautiful, flawless finish.
The handle is a bit smaller than my epi SG400 pro, but made the same.
Medium frets, although nothing GRAILLE raised paw.
Course set neck, vintage mechanical but keep the agreement.
Siouplé wilkinson pickups (like on the guitar les paul vintage brand sold more expensive), and the icing on the cake and split they are if you want (4 more bare son)!
Welds are ok, selector knobs and a notch below ear.

The paint is glossy and does not stick to the legs as in Gigi (indeed I did satin as the home for this reason), a delight to play.

The back and neck are dark brown translucent, very nice. Compared to photographs of the site the gradient is more subtle, it really is honey orange, not yellow-red. More true class.

UTILIZATION

It weighs his weight, it is a real one will say (my lp studio to make pokey side).
The ergonomics are typical, well, a guitar that allows the game to the fingers (plenty of space between table and microphones) and is well balanced sitting game.
Perfectly suited to beginners so.

The sound is fast, hot, very good sustain, but this is really not a scoop!

What always surprises is that with the two volumes to zero the two microphones set is also cut, must know what is normal.

I do not like the location of the switch, I moved smoothly.

SOUNDS

Good mics, more hard rock than blues rock, so rather aggressive with biting / spicy.
Three very usable sounds, no noise, it is nickel.
I had alnico in stock (blues saraceno) for it, I like more roundness I will install but beware it is only a matter of personal taste, original is fine.
What's cool with lespaul is that installing a push-pull for coil option simply can all play with.
It is very flexible, and stroke volume gives two separate options on the distortion channel of the amp (like neck pickup rhythmic little gain, and bridge the adonf celmars), proven recipe!

Of course we have a lot to gain by installing quality knobs, jack ditto, and push-pull (and small capacitor magical pot volume), its level.
Given the ridiculous price of base why deprive yourself?

OVERALL OPINION

Amazing, and I work not for Toto.
However, my last epi (sg, sg pro les paul std more) are very good resistance to double the price only, we can assume that Toto does not dumping but only through choute.
A guitar of this quality at this price is unheard of!
I will update if problems arise only (as I change the pickups it would not be appropriate to speak of sound), thank you for reading.
