Not content with its latest wave of S-style Fusion-III electric guitars, Harley Benton has released new T-style models and Deluxe versions of its massively popular TE guitars with the TE-62CC. 

The Fusion-T HH HT is coming in strong with roasted maple necks, seven finish options (including silver sparkle) and fixed bridges - in contrast with the trem-heavy Fusion-III line up.

The TE-62CC is even more affordable at just £126 and we're already eyeing that Charcoal Frost finish with envious glances. The shocker here is you still get a roasted maple neck… we can barely compute it ourselves. You'd struggle to buy a roasted maple neck on its own anywhere for that money.
