Makos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Telecaster class'vibe"

Harley Benton TE-70RW
The excellent previous review summarizes these data.
I will confirm:
excellent finish, quality hardware, microphones Wilkinson and of course, that is if one is amateur, the beautiful rosewood veneer that makes a really classy touch ... hence this game word in the title refers to the Classic Vibe Series from Squier. Great series, I must say.
I add that reception, the guitar was pretty well settled. Pinailleur I completed the action and intonation without worry. Right sleeve, low action without frieze. Hooping done correctly. Not cut or unpleasant sensation in the hand sliding along the shaft. Mechanical do their job with the necessary precision.

UTILIZATION

This is a Telecaster, it has not the original "maternity", but it is one. We therefore find the typical ergonomics of these guitars. It is relatively light, rather balanced. She falls nor pulls to one side or the other. The measured weight of lime which composes the body is able of its maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. Standing, sitting, she lets play easily. I will not talk about pots and selector are standard Telecaster. The handle is slightly round but thin, it is easy to handle.

SOUNDS

Wilkinson pickups are good. Vintage grain, good output level. They can be changed as the case, it will depend on the expected and / or desired. In any case, it is worthy of the violin.
Side handle is round and velvety, powerful enough. Bridge side, we find the typical characteristic medium-acute "Tele", but not garish. The central position mixing the two microphones is also interesting, the output level is important and playing with the tone we find feelings of P90 ... personal opinion, of course.
No significant electro-magnetic disturbance noticed.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it after reading the previous reviews and of course because I love guitars ;-) tree wood, rosewood veneer is really beautiful (I'm repeating myself but it's true. .. it's beautiful!). I will not talk price. It is almost indecent. It comes to wonder if this is reasonable, they console themselves with the knowledge that "brands" are also making their instruments at the same places, except they do not margent as German retailer, brand prestige requires Audiofanzine ... could offer its members a report on Chinese factories, I would be interested and I think will not be the only ...
Okay, back to the guitar ... it is at a Classic Vibe on the finish and the benefits offered, for 1/3 the price. In addition, it does not copy (except type) an existing model and features a beautiful rosewood veneer finish, very successful. All this is worth a 10/10. Certainly, Harley Benton ... well Thomann is very strong.

SlapKid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Total Class"

Harley Benton TE-70RW
I just received, made in china of course.
43mm key rosewood handle, well rounded C profile very nice, shiny patent finish. Immediate access to the tension adjustment rod.
Jumbo frets almost 21 perfectly finished and therefore not asked to provide job phew.
Mechanical oil serious bath.
Double body binding (ie edges quite uncomfortable compared to a vintage) beautiful, plating rosewood back face as throws.
Pickups wilkinson please, no buzz in position 2.
Wilkinson also with easel, this incredible prices, compensated brass saddles! Type ashtray made with cornering well dishes destroyent not the right palm.
This bridge is topload here, but has the necessary holes to pass through the body.
Guitar not, on the other hand, so toploaded.
The tone is very well done, very progressive and really usable.

UTILIZATION

Very nice as a handle, the gloss has a very different feel of satin.
The weight of the beautiful is rather light.
For ergonomics is a Tele so not all bad after all.
Sound vacuum is immediate, it is the concept that speaks ...

Compared to a normal Tele body is a little more prominent in the elbow in the ribs.

SOUNDS

I know these pickups (the harley rides on his vintage Tele) for a while and frankly they are great. Round and warm but precise for serious, pungent and precise treble, and overall it's funky time thoroughly marcels.
The toploaded architecture gives a hint of acidity but does not affect the sustain apparently.

I think to stick a ghost coil as my harley vintage tele, of course ...

OVERALL OPINION

The absolute look, a different tele, microphones that hold the road and bridge top, hard eh competition.
Very good finishes, I do not know how toto comes at a price like this is disturbing to the limit.

I update as soon as it is over the counter kils course.
