Harley Benton know how to tempt us – a sleek black HH T-style electric guitar (opens in new tab) with red tortoiseshell pickguard? Yes please!
The TE-20HH SBK is just £82 / €89 and already looks like the perfect partner to the recent TB-70 SBK bass (opens in new tab). Let's look at the specs on this dark knight.
This new model takes the popular TE series into the darker realms with an aesthetic that looks suitable for the heavy side of guitar, but why limit ourselves? Especially as Harley Benton are pitching a lightweight basswood body here. And who doesn't love a light t-style guitar?
A black satin finish, dark roseacer fingerboard and black hardware and pair of a simple but powerful aesthetic. Pickups are a pair of Roswell humbuckers (opens in new tab) and we've been impressed by the versatility from the Thomann brand of pups that we've tried so far. But Harley Benton guitar prices tend to be so reasonable a pickup upgrade (opens in new tab) is always a tempting option if you want to hone in on specific tonality.
Fingerboard radius is 12-inches and maple neck is a "modern C-shape" with SLX TE bridge and tuners.
