Harley Benton Unveils Four New High-Performance Fusion-III Electric Guitars


Capping off a stellar year – which included the ultra-cheap 27-unit MiniStomp series of pedals, World-S and World-C soprano and concert ukuleles under $40, and new metal-minded Amarok models some of its flagship product announcements – Harley Benton has announced four new, impressively spec electric guitars in its Fusion-III line.

The first is the Fusion-III HH equipped with a dual humbucker, which sports a nyatoh body with a flame maple veneer finished in transparent purple, a bolt-on roasted Canadian flame maple neck with a C-shaped profile, a fingerboard 24-fret roasted maple top with clay dot inlays and a Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo system.

The electronics include a pair of HAF Alnico-5 humbuckers, controlled via master volume and tone pots, the latter offering a push-pull function for coil separation.

Next is a trio of models each sporting a humbucker-single-coil-humbucker pickup configuration. Each also features a coil splitter feature in the humbucker circuit for an even greater variety of available tones.

All three nyatoh bodies sport flamed maple veneers, but feature Trans Purple, Cherry and Charcoal Burst finishes respectively. Each of these models is available with a Canadian flamed maple neck and matching fingerboard or a Canadian maple neck with an ebony fingerboard.

Other features featured on each model include a Wilkinson 50IIK two-point tremolo system with locking tuners, Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut, natural wood binding, chrome hardware and a 648mm scale length.

In terms of pricing, the Fusion-III HH is available now for $498, while the price of all three HSH models varies depending on neck and fingerboard configuration. For more information, visit Harley Benton.
