Harley Benton are full speed ahead with the 2022 releases; it just dropped an incredible electric guitar deal with the satin black ST-22HH Active and now they've got something equally tempting for the more vintage-included with the TE-62DB, drawing influence from a certain T-style originator's 1962 Custom iteration. And that means a double bound body – and they always look good. 

Three high gloss finishes are offered on the £132 / €158 model with good ol' Black, classic Lake Placid Blue and striking Candy Apple Red.

The Canadian maple neck is caramelised for a lovely vintage hue with a 'Modern D-shape' and 12" pau ferro fingerboard –  Fender's Deluxe series Teles also use this radius over the common 9.5".
