Okay, I am stunned, listen to it carefully and focus. I known it is not only about sound but feel and craftsmanship. There are many factors like amplifier and looks of guitar also. I can understand harley benton not having bets frets, some cracks and not the best electronics but is Fender really worth what is it ? There is huge money difference between two of these. I already find Classic Vibe 50 Squier to be superior to a Baja/Vintera and Standard/Player series. If i had to pick between harley benton or Fender i would pick Squier. I got the vote right, my ears work fine i guess What you sau? I find Vintera to be last option to pick. Higher end Fenders are waste of money i guess?
