The new Harley Benton Guitar MAX Fusion Signature is the new signature model for Max of the Guitar MAX YouTube channel and it has some very tasty well specifications. Plus, it punches well above the price point in terms of hardware and choice of tone woods.
Guitar MAX Fusion Signature
This Harley Benton Guitar MAX Fusion Signature features a bolt-on neck design with a 25.5” scale length and a locking Floyd Rose 100o system. With gold hardware throughout and a deep Emerald Green finish, it is certainly a head-turner.
It has a cool reverse headstock with a Modern-C profile neck and fretboard made from roasted Canadian flame maple and it is fitted with 24 medium jumbo Blacksmith stainless steel frets. This combined with the 12″ radius fretboard should make for a very smooth playing instrument.
The body is Nyatoh and comes with an ultra-flamed maple veneer and wooden binding around the edge. It looks great in the Emerald Green finish, and the back and sides are plain, which amps up the aesthetics in my opinion. This is one great-looking guitar!
Loaded with a Tesla Plasma-X1 humbucker in the bridge coupled with a Tesla Plasma-RS2 in the single-coil-sized humbucker neck position. Harley Benton states these are perfect for screaming leads, funky rhythms, and everything in between. A mini-toggle switch splits the humbuckers to single-coil mode for even more tonal variety. Beyond these, it has a single master volume and master tone control.
A simple control layout, but with plenty of tonal options and I think it looks like a great layout for ease of use.
Value for money
I like this a lot as it looks great, I have followed the Guitar MAX channel for years and it is good to see him finally get a signature model with his own specifications from Harley Benton.
It will no doubt sell like hotcakes at this price point.
