Harley Benton TE-90FLT Blast Series – loaded with Roswell Filtertron pickups
The new Harley Benton TE-90FLT Blast models are part of the brand’s Deluxe Series singlecut guitar range. There are five different colours to choose from, and each guitar comes with a pair of Roswell FLT-B Filtertron retro-styled pickups.
Harley Benton TE-90FLT Blast Series
Harley Benton’s new TE-90FLT Blast models are available in Green, Black, Blue, Red, and Orange blast finishes over a sungkai body. The body is chambered and has a belly cut, which means they should be light and comfortable to play. The model also features a bolt-on Canadian hard rock maple C-profile neck, with a roasted sungkai fretboard and 22 medium jumbo frets. You also have a GraphTech TUSQ nut, to aid tuning stability, paired with a set of WSC Kluson-style tuners on a reverse headstock, and a string through body bridge.
I think the pair of Roswell FLT-B Filtertron pickups could be the big draw for many players here, as these vintage-voiced units offer something a little different from the standard single-coils or humbuckers we typically get. These are wired via a Volume, Tone and 3-way switch, so it’s a nice, simple and clean control layout.
These new models from Harley Benton look great, and with this pickup combination, I can see them being popular. Especially at this price point. I think the blast finish works well and looks neat paired with the minimal black pickguard and twin Filtertron pickups. The guitars come factory-fitted with a set of D’addario EXL110 .010 – .046 strings and you can order yours directly from the link below.

If they ever did a lefty I’d grab one and put a different neck on it. Who puts left handed necks on right handed guitars? Dumb. And a 13″ radius.
