Now, I know Hinfrance has mentioned the Harley Benton guitars before, and loves them. I've been having a look at some of the range, and can't actually believe what spec and finish you get for your money, they seem to be really excellent value.
Take this one for example Harley Benton L-450Plus Honey Burst
"Harley Benton L-450Plus Honey Burst Vintage Series, Electric-Guitar, Mahogany Body, Arched Flamed "AAA"-Grade Maple Top, Set-In Mahogany Neck, C-Shape, 628mm Scale, 43mm Nut Width, Rosewood Fretboard, 22 Frets, 350 mm fretboard radius, Trapez Fretboard Inlays, Creme Body & Neck binding, Double Action Trussrod, 2x Wilkinson Alnico V MWCHB Humbucker Pickups, 3-Way Toggle Switch, 2-Volume control, 2-Tone Control, Kluson-Style Tuners, Deluxe Chrome Hardware, Colour: Hi-Gloss Honey Burst."
All for Around £116.00, it's an absolute steal. I was going to consider buying a kit, and building it myself, but I'd never achieve the finish this has. Also check out the videos on youtube and you'll get an idea just how this little beastie sounds. Bargain.
