My latest guitar has arrived

Harley Benton TE-80

I Spotted this guitar on a german website at the tail end of last year and I was interested in getting one....they were out of stock. confused

But now it has arrived lol and here are some pics.

HB1

HB2

HB3

HB4

They have obviously based it on Hohner's 'The Prinz' from the 1980,s.

But this is a fraction of the price still a fantastic looking guitar, build quality is also excellent.

Ive given it a quick run out and a pretty solid tele sound, and will only get better once tweeked. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase.

If anyone is interested in buying the guitar you can get them here for a very reasonable $200! It arrived 2 days after I ordered it. biggrinHarley Benton TE-80

Some others who have bought the same guitar have already changed the pick guard to give it the more traditional Prince tele look used on the 70's Madcat Andersons version, or Prince's Hohner.

Pickguard upgrade

..and some other reviews/pics

....No doubt some naysayers will be along to question the fact its not original vintage, but hey ho it is what it is. cool

That is one fine looking copy that I would love to own. Looks much better and more Prince-like than my 120 euro Telecaster copy from Richwood. Might consider getting one too!

RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time!
