Harlem Guitar Reviews
This guitar was awarded 4 out of 5 by Music Radar - a leading online publication for musicians.
"We enjoyed thrashing away on the guitar and, to its credit, the Harlem Electric Guitar withstood a serious amount of abuse.""For aggressive solos, the bridge pickup really sings, especially on the higher notes, and the big cutaways allow unrestricted access to all 24 frets.""The paulownia body...is a mix of smooth curves and 'you'll have your eye out' spikes and edges. It undoubtedly looks the business."
"...the Harlem Electric Guitar holds plenty of potential, bolstered by a likeable tone and the all-round fun image." Paul Salter, Guitar Buyer magazine
"Acoustically the Harlem Electric Guitar is bright and loud with decent balance and sustain. It certainly looks the part, and plugged in it sounds the part too." Guitar and Bass magazine
