I've had it maybe 6 months now.
GREAT guitar. Locking tuners, SS frets. Gut-cut. PRS-esque top and cutaway.
The Wilk trem is probably the greatest trem system ever

I almost bought the same model, but at the last minute opted for the TE-62.

How do you like that one? I love my harley, if I have one niggle, it's that it's a tad bright. I may swap out pickups at some point

I do like it very much. The roasted neck is smooth and fast, even though it is chunky neck.
The sound is, I feel quite good. If it is bright, adjust the tone control or equaliser on the amp.

I have another T-Type guitar which is too dark sounding, and I just dial the amp for the bright tone.
It seems work that way ok.

I don't know if we have the same neck on our guitars, but the one on mine is one of the best necks I've ever played

Never played this model or brand. But I agree with the OP about the Wilkinson trem. I have one on an S-type (a Tradition SP-1) beater. It's one seriously smooth and intonation/pitch-respecting gizmo, indeed. I like Strat trems and Bigsby's just fine. But the Wilkinson is the best of 'em all.

Yes. My first Wilk experience was with my Reverend Bayonet, also an all-around incredible guitar

I took a shot on a used Harley Benton double cut Les Paul Jr. last summer. I loved it, but the high e string was just too close to the edge of the fretboard so I passed it on. I just didn't want to deal with getting a new nut cut for it.

It was the TV model color, sort of a mustard yellow. Ironically, the guy who bought it sprayed it to look like a red mahogany LP Jr, which I always thought was a less desirable color.

I'd love to try another HB since everything else seemed rally nice about it.
