We love affordable gear here at MusicRadar, so when we hear about new Harley Benton guitars our ears always prick up, and we know yours do, givcen the feedback and data we see. 

Now, European retail giant Thomann has upped (or downed?) the affordability ante by using Cyber Week sale to knock even more money off the entry price with some fairly hard-to-resist Black Friday guitar deals.

A magnificent 7  guitars are reduced, from the '80s metal maniac EX-84 Modern, through the beefy single-cut SC-DLX Gotoh and the double-cut garage rocker DC-Junior FAT, to our own personal favourite, the stylish HB JA-60SB Vintage (£125!), and even though Thomann is based in Germany, the price you see is the price you’ll pay. There’s no customs, added VAT or additional delivery fees to worry about! 

Harley Benton HB JA-60SB Vintage: £144

Nope, it’s not a vintage guitar from under someone’s bed. It’s brand new, and it can be yours for a ridiculous price of just £125. For that you get a basswood body, maple neck with Pau Ferro Fingerboard, classy big block inlays and a pair of vintage style 90 pickups. It’s finished in a great looking three-colour sunburst too.

Harley Benton EX-84 Modern MSP: £253

Thrash metal is closely associated with the scratchplate-less, 1984 X-shape guitar. Here, Harley Benton’s take on a metal icon clocks in with a reduction of 25%. There’s a mahogany body, mahogany neck, active Roswell humbuckers and Grover locking tuners. Ride the lightning deal before they’re all gone.

Harley Benton ST-62CC RW: £125

This S-type guitar packs a lot of punch for just over £100 (that's 13% off). It’s a basswood body with a maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard, a classic trio of Alnico 5 single coils, tremolo and we think the Lake Placid Blue finish looks the business too.

Harley Benton Fusion-T HH: £333

Harley Benton Fusion-T HH: £333, now £299
Fancy a hot-rodded T-style guitar? This one has a roasted maple neck for enhanced stability, 22 stainless steel frets, a Wilkinson 50IIK two-point vibrato, Graph Tech TUSQ nut, dual Alnico 5 humbuckers (with push/pull coil split) and staggered locking tuners. With 10% off, it’s just £299!

Harley Benton SC-DLX Gotoh: £299

Harley Benton SC-DLX Gotoh: £299, now £249
This beefy single-cut guitar looks great in Pelham Blue, but it’s got a spec sheet to match with a nyatoh body, rosewood fingerboard, Graph Tech TUSQ nut, and Gotoh hardware. The Tesla VR-2 alnico 5 pickups are also fitted with a coil split for extra versatility. It’s a stone cold bargain at just £249 (16% off), delivered to your door.

Harley Benton DC-Junior FAT: £169

Harley Benton DC-Junior FAT: £169, now £133
Surf’s up! This double-cut garage rocker is made of mahogany throughout, with an ebony fretboard and a Fat ’59 neck profile. The single pickup is a stacked P90, plus there’s a wraparound bridge and Wilkinson tuners, all with a respectable 21% discount bringing it down to £133. That's Benton Blue finish is pretty sweet, too.

Harley Benton Dullahan-AT 24 TBB: £382

Harley Benton Dullahan-AT 24 TBB: £382, now £249
Don’t you know that headless guitars are all the rage again? We nearly lost ours when we saw how little Thomann is charging for this Harley Benton Dullahan. It’s got a mahogany body, flamed maple veneer top, ebony ’board, stainless steel frets and a Graph Tech TUSQ nut. You’re not going to find this quality at this price anywhere else - especially with 35% off.
