Thundering low end! With a 27" scale length, the MR-Modern Baritone is perfect for stoner rock and surf music! Its two soapbar-sized humbucker pickups deliver a powerful sound, while retaining its vintage aesthetic. So whether you want a sweet, warm and mellow sound, or a screaming hot lead, the MR-Modern Baritone will get you there with the flick of a toggle switch. The push-pull tone control for coil tap brings even more tones to your palette. The smooth C-shaped A-grade Canadian maple neck, with its natural satin finish and 12” radius Macassar Ebony fretboard will have you navigating the neck smoothly and effortlessly. The 22 stainless steel frets, TUSQ nut, and locking tuners means you never have to worry going out of tune. And the Wilkinson precision tremolo will have you channelling those surf music vibes in no time!

At SkunkWerx USA, we definitely have the "Better Benton"!

The copycats just can't match our experience and expertise, nobody on Reverb has imported and sold more Harley Bentons than we have! At SkunkWerx USA, we have procured and sold over sixty different Harley Benton models, so we have the knowledge to find the right Harley Benton for you!

So, what makes a SkunkWerx USA Harley Benton better than a regular off-the-boat Harley Benton?
The SkunkWerx USA promise.

Every single guitar will be sent out ready to play, properly set up, sniglets and issues dealt with, so you have no surprises. The "B-stocks" are weeded out BEFORE they have become B-stocks! You receive the EXACT guitar, not just a box off a stack of similar guitars. Double boxed, more than properly packed, and insured! Zero guesswork.
Each and every guitar we sell has undergone a strict quality control inspection and play test upon receipt, then is rested for two weeks prior being listed for sale. This lets the guitar acclimate prior to setup, relieving stresses, and exposing any work that needs to be done to ensure they are absolutely perfect upon arrival to you.

Our promise is: Every SkunkWerx guitar will ship out in its absolute best playing condition, or it won't ship. Period.
Every guitar gets our free FretWerx complete fret prep and mini setup, including, but not limited to:

- Adjust neck in pocket for all bolt on guitars
- Check neck relief and adjust truss rod to factory specs or better
- Remove any sharp fret ends
- Level, crown and polish frets, round fret ends
- Treat fretboard if needed using PRS conditioners
- Lubricate all string contact points
- Tune and intonate, replace strings if needed.
- Play test all electronics
- Clean and polish the entire guitar with PRS cleaners and polishes

We will even send you a picture of your VERY OWN guitar during the FretWerx process, as well as a complete video of its condition as it is packed for shipping.

Who does that? Only SkunkWerx.

We REFUSE to send out any guitar not meeting or exceeding factory specs! If we do, it will be disclosed, mutually agreed to, and documented thoroughly.

SkunkWerx Guitars USA always recommends a full set up by a qualified technician in your city or town, as temperature and humidity can affect playability during shipping. We recommend waiting 24-48 hours after receiving your guitar BEFORE performing any setup to allow the guitar to acclimate to your local humidity and temperature. This often alleviates issues without the need for additional setup. Guitars may show some signs of light play wear, and condition is reported as accurately as possible.

All instruments are VIDEO RECORDED during packing to ensure you have accurate images in case of damage during shipping, or dispute. Returns are allowed up to three days after sale. Both initial and return shipping is at the BUYER'S expense, so please review all photos carefully, and ask questions before you buy. We strive to provide as accurate information and descriptions as possible, nobody like surprises! Requests for "partial" refunds will be sent directly to Reverb for review. Scammers will be publicly shamed and reported, we've had enough. Honesty is the best policy.

You can count on SkunkWerx Guitars USA to do what we can to make sure you are satisfied with your purchase, and the next. We pride ourselves on making things right! Your positive review means everything to us, let us earn it!
SkunkWerx USA is not affiliated with Harley Benton, nor do we receive any special treatment or pricing. We are simply providing top quality, hand selected, fully sorted Harley Benton's for stateside buyers for a nominal fee.
Thanks for trusting your purchase to SkunkWerx USA!

** Some guitars come in near-perfect, and don't need much more than a fret polish and or some fine adjustments.
