The new Harley Benton ST-20HH Active SBK is a twin active humbucker, kitted out in a Satin Black finish with black hardware throughout. With hints of the Fender Jim Root signatures, but at a fraction of the cost.
Harley Benton ST-20HH Active SBK
Loaded with a pair of powerful active HBZ humbucker, the new Harley Benton ST-20HH Active SBK looks mighty stealth-like, in that Satin Black finish and black hardware. It features a bolt-on maple modern-C profile neck which is paired with a roseacre fretboard loaded with 22 frets, along with a lightweight, comfortable poplar body.
The twin active HBZ humbuckers are wired via a single volume control, and a three-way blade switch.
This model is a hardtail bridge, and has as et of die cast tuners, so I would imagine that it will sustain well with those active HBZ pickups. It could be perfect for many modern styles, where you need a tight tone and good sustain, so potentially great for heavier drive tones as well.
With an insanely low price point, this hardtail dual active humbucker model could be perfect for anyone looking for a modern looking guitar, that handles gain tones well. It does reminds me a lot of the Fender Jim Root models, with that stripped back stying and simple control layout. Harley Benton has created some very nice budget instruments inn recent years, and it looks like they intend to keep upping their game, so this could be a great affordable instrument for a lot of musicians on a budget.
