Harley Benton is no stranger to budget electric guitars, but for 2021, it’s looking to grow its semi-hollow offering with the Aeolus, a new single-cut take on the format.
Boasting a mahogany body topped by a AAA flame maple veneer, the Aeolus is available in Bengal Flame and Frost Flame finishes.
Playability comes by way of a roasted maple neck and fingerboard, topped off by 22 stainless-steel frets.
Harley Benton is promising versatility for a wealth of genres from the model, and to that end, its two Tesla VR-2 Alnico V humbuckers offer single-coil tones via a coil-split located on the push/pull tone knob.
Other notable features include a Graph Tech nut, WSC tune-o-matic-style bridge and Grover locking tuners.
