Harley Benton has released a signature guitar in collaboration with YouTuber Hunter Engel, best known by his channel name Agufish.
The single-cut electric comes with a striking dark purple finish, over an ash top and mahogany body. The top’s grain is on full display, with a dramatic contrast from the violet stain. A roasted maple neck completes a 25” scale-length, ending in a Wilkinson Tune-o-matic style bridge and tailpiece, with Grover locking tuners and a Graph Tech nut .
Electronics-wise, it’s loaded with two Roswell humbuckers: a Seraphim Alnico V at the bridge and a Flanker Alnico V / Ceramic in the neck position. Standard LP-style wiring means an individual tone and volume control for each pickup, and a three-way switch on the top horn of the body. The knobs themselves are recessed into the top, meaning they lie at a more natural angle.
At the headstock, there’s not too much to indicate that it’s a signature model other than the angel graphic, given Hunter Engel’s last name. Watch him talk about the guitar himself in the video below:
The guitar is limited to 350 pieces, and lists for €499. For more information, head over to harleybenton.com.
