Disappointments The only real disappointment for me is that the neck strap button was not installed on the guitar. Please be specific on which instrument s you're looking for, and we'll be happy to contact you as soon as they become available. But the combination of both pickups actually has a nice rhythm tone for chords. Expensive hollowbody guitars are rarely carried at music stores outside of New York and a few other select locations, so I had no access to one. This is perhaps one of the cost saving methods.

Also Ebony fretboard and bridge. These include the Chinese-made introduced in 2016. The laminate top and thin body make this instrument highly feedback resistant and structurally stable in all sorts of climates.

Hardware includes twin floating humuckers, Gotoh tuners, and Benson's unique adjustable tailpiece. I believe it had a Rosewood board versus Ebony on the Japan models and the pickguard was black as compared to Tortoise on the Japanese makes. Now, are they worth the money? A friend of mine had one - fantastic guitar! Playability Right out of the box the action was low and fast. I'm more of a solid body guitar player, but when I played the Benson I fell in love with it. An affordable version of an iconic guitar. I had a Japanese model for years. Maybe various examples sound really different, I couldn't say as this is the only one I have played.
