Harley Benton has unveiled its new Amarok line of guitars, a series of 12 six-string, seven-string and baritone guitars built for heavy distortion.
Each Amarok model begins with a neck-through mahogany body with shaved ergonomic cutaways for easy fret access. The five-piece neck comprises maple and mahogany, on top of which sits a 24-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard with stainless steel frets and glow-in-the-dark side dot markers.
Designed for heavy, modern distortion, the company has opted for active humbuckers pickups. An EMG Hot 70 ceramic sits in the bridge position, while an EMG Retro Active Hot 70 alnico 5 at the neck. These are controlled via a three-way switching system, volume knob and tone knob.
The Amarok guitars wear either a quilted or flamed maple top, and come finished in Black Red, Emerald Natural, Black Blue and Black Natural. Each model sports a set of Grover locking tuners, a Graphtech Tusq XL nut and WSC HPS hardtail bridges.
The price tags also come at a nice surprise – the six-string Amarok lists at just £437.
