Apparently Thomann has really gone the extra mile with their Harley Benton- line.

Behold:


Baritone. 203 .


Twin P90. 193 .


Also with hambakersch.


Ric- copies galore (also with 12 strings)

And especially for me,



Also someone re-issued the Vox teardrop and Phantom.



Can I save any money this summer? Probably not.

What's up with the switches on those Hi-Flyers? Looks like they bought pre-cut 2" wires by mistake, or little Billy's football landed on the CNC input console again.

Only 156. Very tempting..

30.5" scale. Also comes in white. If it came in black there'd be one heading my way already.

My reaction to pretty much all of these was "Sheeeeeitt".

I wonder if these coming from the same factory Eastwoods come from, or just an attempt to replicate the same kind of success with the HB line... nice to see a more honest price on stuff like that in any case.

Look great, priced great, where is the catch? I've not really heard anyone complain about the harleys.

I'm hoping that these Harley's will be Eastwood minus the BS.

Ooh, these are nice. Probably the same factory as Eastwood, to be honest. Eastwoods themselves have occasionally been rebranded Hutchins/Alden guitars with an extra 250 or so slapped on for extra profitz.

Just posted this in the amp thread, thought it was pertinent here too: http://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_vt_30_tw.htm

Basically an all valve Classic 30 copy for just under 300, kitted out with a Celestion V30 as standard. Which is amazing.

Some stuff sticks around, other stuff seems a bit more limited edition. They chuck something out, sell it off, bring out something new. But the price on this stuff is so damn low, and the reviews all seem to be pretty good.

That sounds like a deal. But what's about quality of their amps. Used Classic 30 from the US shipped would be 1.5 - 2 times more expensive, but I guess it can outlive its owner and can be inherited as a heirloom.

I'd like to see a shot of the guts. Valve amps tend to be pretty serviceable; as long as there's no crippling production/design error and it sounds good, I can't really see any reason the quality wouldn't be as good as the Classic. At that price, who really gives a shit? And it comes in red.

I'll watch the video when I get home from work today.

Aren't they Vox guitars rather than Thomann copies of Vox guitars? You can buy them lots of places. Unless I'm missing something?

Those Univox/Mosrite copies look excellent, I wonder if they'll be selling a hard case for them too?

I have the Harley Benton Vintage series jazz bass. For the money it's great. It is a budget instrument, but for the price it's a good deal.

Yes , they are 'real deal' VOX guitars. I wrote copies just because they are 'reissues'...
They sound like stratocasters, or they have some special vox tone ?

We dont have them nowhere here in Latvia, so I cant try them out. Sad
