Guitar bargain of 2022? Harley Benton demos its £109 ST-20HH Active

Harley Benton's Benedikt Schlereth has filmed a demo of the company's new ST-20HH Active SBK – HB's new electric guitar causing a stir with its extremely attractive £109 / €129 price tag.

Satin black with active humbuckers and streamlined controls (no tone pot here), it's one for the Jim Root fans and could prove a great starter option for metal and heavy rock players, or even a modding platform for more seasoned guitarists.
