    Bet ya thought tglos got a bike. Na it's a HB stdlx 62. Let me just say right from the start these are wonderful guitars. I now have 2 and the minor things that need to be done will make these killer guitars. I played my mim standard strat and then my benton and the feel and tone are on both close to the same. The neck on the hb is a bit thicker then the mex. The roswell pups are sweet and bell like. The neck has a attached maple fretboard and it feels good. Now for the not good. I had to lower the action and one spot on the g string about the 18th fret is buzzy. The frets could do for a filing and polish. But thats it.

    Bet this won't be your last one either. The Bentons definitely have their hooks in you. :ROFLMAO::)

    HNGD!

    You need to order in multiples to spread out the shipping cost!

    Major Tom, you are a rat bastard pile of shit.
    if I hadn't just dropped $500 on car parts, I'd have bought the B-stock MS-60 lefty HB just last week...

    Along with the Joyo 5E3 copy.

    In a short time your living room will look like a Harley Benton showroom. Trust me, I know. They're addictive.

    you could down ramp/level those last 7 frets to get rid of that buzz. Would still need the tools ( sanding beam, notched FB level, crowning file) but it would be a quicker leveling than doing an entire neck.

    Used my HB strat at a gig tonight and she did great. The pups are very clean and lower output so you get this very articulate sound. The hums in my dc600 are also lower output and the sound is very focused unlike some highoutput pickups where you may get all this extra overtones that for me get in the way and drown out the riff.
