    Talking New Guitar Day - SG From Germany - Harley-Benton

    So I used to have an Angus Young SG several years ago, but I sold it because it was just hard for me to get used to and I felt like I wasn't playing it enough to keep it. Fast forward a couple years and I have been having an urge again to try an SG, but I don't have the cash right now for an expensive Gibson SG. So been looking around and heard great things about this company in Germany called Harley-Benton. Well they made a very nice-looking SG for freaking $120!! I'm like, well I'll buy it, even if it's just a plywood POS I can still mod it and have fun with it, and I haven't spent a bunch of cash on an SG I can't get used to. So I get it, cost me $195 shipped...from GERMANY! The freaking guitar got here in 3 days....3 DAYS!!! I ordered it Monday, and it came to my door yesterday. So I open the box and am absolutely blown away with how nice the guitar is. The craftsmanship is unreal, the finish is like a transparent red, it's just beautiful. The inlay in the headstock is like a beautiful pearl that you normally don't find in a cheap guitar. The pots and knobs weren't even shit, and the tuners are solid. I'm not even sure I need to replace the pickups which I just assumed I would, they sound really nice. It is 24 frets so that does take a little getting used to, but I have a Charvel that is, so not that hard for me. Anyway again the brand is called Harley-Benton and the place that sells them is Thomann Music. I believe it's like their internal brand. Highly recommended if you're looking for a cheap guitar to mod or have fun with that isn't a POS. I might by another one, maybe a Paul copy or something. Crazy. This pic doesn't honestly do the guitar justice.

    No idea about the tech stuff your mentioning, but Thomann Music is THE place to go for instruments, equipment, etc. They're just an hour away from where I live. Always bought and buy my drum stuff from them. They have real experts in each department. The town of Treppendorf is a tiny town with a populace of just 200-300 souls, far from highways or big cities. Their store and warehouse are HUGE. They grew from a small store in the back of a farmhouse.

    Harley Brenton, just like Millennium for drums, is their own in-house brand

    The price was ridiculous for the quality of this instrument and then it came in three freaking days 6,000 miles away from another country. Unreal.

    They had other SGís that were little more money but the one that I bought seemed like exactly what I was looking for so I took a chance.

    Yeah I read that it was their in-house brand. Well dude itís a real quality instrument. That is awesome information, thanks man. I did read some stuff about them being like the biggest retailer in Europe or something. Thatís probably why they have such a good deal on shipping.

    I have a question for you about Harley Benton: if I ordered a B-stock guitar, would it be in good enough condition? I'm looking at one of their Cabronita Tele-style guitars and I'm trying to see if its worth saving a little but of money.
    I'm just here.

    Mine is B stock. The only thing I found was a little black dot underneath the clearcoat. Dude if thatís all it is itís not a big deal. That kind of stuff never bothers me. I donít mind little flaws in paint jobs on inexpensive stuff. I couldnít find anything else wrong with the guitar. Itís flawless.

    I was going to point out the black dot in my picture but I canít see it even if I zoom in. Itís underneath the bottom right knob if you zoom in. Maybe youíll see it.
