Harley Benton D-120CE BK

Let’s kick things off with the Harley Benton D-120CE BK electro-acoustic. Not the snappiest of names, but this steel-strung, dreadnought, acoustic guitar is an absolute bargain. Usually loud and proud-sounding acoustics, Dreadnoughts are great for campfire singalongs.

You get a mahogany body and neck, with a spruce top. dot fret inlays on a roseacer fretboard. The C profile neck provides comfort for when you’re learning those important first chords. Amazingly at this price, there’s an onboard pre-amp and 4-band EQ allowing you to plug into a PA system, or mixing desk.

Harley Benton ST-20HSS SBK Standard Series

Do you want to up the volume? This strat style guitar has a basswood body, finished in matte black with black hardware. An amaranth neck sits upon a maple fingerboard, with 22 frets. How much more black could this guitar be? The answer is none – none more black!

A single-coil neck and middle pick up will provide signature strat sounds of the likes of Hendrix and Gilmour. Whilst the bridge humbucker pickup, gives you the tone for rock and metal. There’s a traditional synchronised tremolo, too for note shimmers and bends.

A great choice for those seeking a budget rock axe that looks the part.
