So I received my Harley Benton Telecaster today, here are my feelings on it. Let me say first, I've been playing guitar since I was 13 years old,..51 years! and it's really incredible how nice a guitar you can get these days for not a lot of money. So the bad stuff first... Nothing bad at all really, 6 frets were a bit high, not very much though. The pickup selector switch is a little stiff, the pickups are ok, maybe better than ok I'm not sure at this point. And that's it! Not a big list for a $82 guitar! So the good stuff,... fit and finish is impeccable, not a single thing wrong with the finish and fit of the parts. The guitar sounds ok, the pickups are not great. Who thought they would be on a $82 guitar. The neck is perfectly straight, I removed the strings and loosened the truss rod and checked it with my StewMac Precision Notched Straightedge, and it was perfect! Fret ends are perfectly fine. The tuners are cheap but they work, not real smooth but they work. The nut is cheap and plastic but the guitar stays in tune, so far,... that's all I care about. I haven't looked at the electronics yet, but everything works fine. So here's what I did.,... Loosened the strings and taped off the 6 high frets, leveled them, re-crowned them and used different grades of sand paper to finish them. Ending with 2000 sandpaper, 0000 steel wool, and metal polish for silky smooth frets. Re-installed the strings, tuned it to 440 and adjusted the truss rod, action and relief. Intonation was spot on. Recut the nut, I like my action very low at the first fret. Relief set at .006,...action is at 3/64th on both the high E and low E strings. Quite low action, especially for a 25.5 scale guitar! It's ready to rock! I played it for about an hour after finishing the set up and fret work,...and it plays great and sounds really good! Better than I expected actually. For an $82 guitar,...delivered from Germany to Florida,..for a grand total of $115,...you absolutely cannot get a better value than that anywhere that I know of. Some pics in my music room when it was all done.
