Data-R's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Harley Benton FV-430
Fully-produced in Asia (China or Core), distributes Thomann.

Guitar-22 Frets, 2 humbuckers.

Single-Bridge Tune-o-Matic.

Rglages-buttons: 2 Volume, 1 Tone and a 3 position micro Slecteur

U-type handle, screwed rather flat button with rosewood


Trs-The handle is nice, fairly thin, flat, hand gliding aisment enough. A button also enjoyable, rosewood, dark enough that does not clash too much with the rest of the guitar.

-The Access in acute is the only true, but small problem regarding my opinion.

-The shape is visually enjoyable trs, unfortunately it is not very practical to play seated. It is not too heavy (3kg and bananas), but the handle always falls lgrement, not a real problem in itself. Also beautiful colors, black polished along the sleeve of the head and body, the pickguard is white particulirement Aesthetics, in short, is a copy of Gibson Flying-V you would tell me .

It comes very easy-good sound, sustain trs is also stretched, but rather sound prfrer axes for metal / hard rock.


Exactly the sound, as a fan of metal particulirement it suits me! Great for power chords, but do not count on playing too much treble.

"I used just a basic amp modlisation, V-Tone GM108 Berhinger and it makes rather well with ...

Despite its serious tone, and metal, we can still get the same russia a little jazz or rock rglant more or less the tone, volume and other distortions, a guitar that can accommodate some sounds if you have the hardware.

-I do not tural preferences for sound of this guitar, they are all great!


I reu recently, great package, it comes in over 4 days. Great shape, sounds gniaux metal, a price that low, only 118, the only criticism possible is probably the lack of versatility in sound, but in any case, it remains a trs good guitar for its price!

Harley Benton FV-430
Made in China Distributed by Thomann.
Guitar-22 frets, 2 humbuckers.
Single-Bridge Tune-o-Matic.
Buttons-settings: 2 Volume, 1 Tone and a 3 position selector micro
U-Channel type, screwed, rather flat with key rosewood
box of good quality, correct pickguard
we get a good sound settings menu after qques
the wood of the instrument is surely exotic wood that is cheap but not disturbing
The onboard electronics the 2 tone knobs, the volume pot volume, and the mechanical switch, it's lightweight, it feels "cheap", they will not take 10 years for sure!
but it turns like any


violin more than correct
U nice handle pretty well finished for an instrument of this price! (115 euros)
the frets do not snag on your fingers the key is to be painted! I think because I had the fingers all brown at first use
imprecise mechanical function by accoups (change in the short term)


ToneLab LE connected to my low volume and a small amp to sound right
in crunch and metal
it sounds pretty much like my Epiphone LP Studio and customized by seymour SH4 P90
the humbuckers are fairly accurate for a copy
I have not tried it on my other amps


I've bought the home for fun (delivered in 3 days) and I was quite surprised because with all the talk about this brand, I expected worse, the look is successful,
NB: we said the same about Squier (and still yet), there are twenty five years
guitars with prices between 115 and 2400 euros
I do not compare it to my TV 52 and Gibson SG is not the goal
I must say that for the price, there's nothing to say
especially since we must stop saying that all these are the harley benton stew!
unless I found a good copy I know guitars 3-4 times more expensive not better (Epiph.. etc. ..)
I would like to enter can be GIBSON 498T humbucker 498R AND
but for now, it sounds a lot like that
and is widely playable
and she deserves better than being hung on the wall

Harley Benton FV-430
Guitar-Made in China

Bridge-type Tune-O-Matic

Channel U

-22frettes, 2 Humbuckers

Two knobs, volume, tone, 3 position selector.
Poor quality for the switch, you feel the game to change quickly.

Mechanical-changing "by a sudden".


Channel pleasant, fast.

Ergonomics-good, good access to acute, of course, difficult to play sitting down, just used to have ...

-Its easy, the volume knobs are accurate and quality.

-Very heavy, have a good strap.


-Style hard rock / metal well respected. Big Rock, sadly enough treble massacred.
One Solo Metallica: do not make the tapping does not come out as much as on my Squier Stratocaster ...

Its crystal-absent, we always seem to be in low tone.

Micros-to change, EMG 81/85 in anticipation.

Lutherie-very good, even impressive enough ...


"I've had it about two weeks.

Test-even ESP MII (Sustain level is comparable.)

"I like its shape, this originality, aesthetics and mechanical customing in anticipation!

-Excellent quality / price ratio.

I start this purchase without a doubt.

jojo88160's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Test the Flying V Harley Benton"

Harley Benton FV-430
It is manufactured in China,

Tune o matic Chevaley, so that gives Fixes longer sustain the vibrato standars

22 frets, les paul typed Channel U and is screwed to the body.

2 VOLUME control for microphones, and 1 tone.


The handle very well finished, comfortable, spotless I am amazed.
Ergonomics ba, is special because it is a Flying V ^ ^.

But very comfortable with the habit.

Access to treble is good, we arrive at the last fret with no problem.

She is not heavy I'm surprised.


It is very suitable to my style of music. From Metallica to a Green Day.
Nirvana, a Gun's n roses ...

Very versatile.

In his clear is we have a really good are pretty hot. very nice.

In disto ba, it's not good stammers his asser is very accurate right microphone for a guitar of this price.


I use it recently, I also in my possession the Hbr 450 BK Harley Benton.
The report quality "top prize is a great value price, it's on;)

A flying V as faithful to the original, for 115 euro is a great guitar.

Change the most qualified plastic Harley Benton, and put a Gibson believe there ^ ^.

Simply a great guitar;)
