***Trust us, you have been waiting to meet "Margo" your whole life! Margo and her sister, Greta, are here to make a big splash in the currently uninteresting (and unavailable!) HB lineup. A touch of class and tech added to a workhorse of a guitar turns it into a real steamroller! Chug, squeal, watch the neighbors pack. AHHH.

We resolved the grounding issues with a total rewire, Dragonfire H-90 P-90 pickup, CTS pot, and a killer adjustable treble bleed to keep the highs...high! Slap that all into a bespoke carbon fiber pickguard created just for SkunkWerx by our friends in Scotland, and we have something special. No stutter on this one, but we could.

Her name, and don't forget it: Margo.

Note: this is NO LONGER an active guitar, but the H-90 P-90 will CRUSH the stock active pickup, no doobit. Pickguard plastic has been partially removed to show the insane carbon fiber pattern and gloss, amazing stuff. No vinyl on this one, folks.

Have fun, all!- Spanky***

Here's what Harley Benton says about it:

Sleek and contoured, the JA-20HH Active SBK has an instantly classic form that is ergonomic and comfortable to play. But the not-so-subtle all black finish is an indication of what this guitar is all about. Featuring two high-gain HBZ active humbuckers, and a single volume knob and pickup selector switch, this instrument is clearly designed for some brutal riffage! The 648mm scale length, along with a bolt-on maple neck provide a tight and snappy response, while the all-black diecast tuners and string-through hardtail bridge ensure tuning stability. But turn down the volume, and you get a range of versatile tones.


  • Standard Series
  • electric guitar
  • poplar body
  • bolt-on maple neck with modern C-shape
  • roseacer fretboard
  • fretboard radius: 305 mm
  • 22 frets

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. We go to great lengths to pack our guitars properly, and we feature the Reverb Shipping Guarantee and Insurance for your protection. Zero guesswork, no BS.

Each and every guitar we sell has undergone a strict quality control inspection and play test upon receipt, then is rested to acclimate prior being listed for sale. This lets the guitar relax prior to our comprehensive FretWerx process and setup, relieving stresses, and exposing any work that needs to be done to ensure they are absolutely perfect upon arrival to you.

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, round fret ends, crown and polish frets

- Treat fretboard if needed using PRS and/or Music Nomad conditioners

- Lubricate all string contact points with Big Bends Nut Sauce

- Set bridge height, check and adjust nut slot depth, tune and intonate, replace strings if needed with Ernie Ball or equivalent. Custom string requests are available, some require additiona costs.

- Play test all electronics, edjust pickup height, verify ground to bridge connection.

- Clean and polish the entire guitar with Music Nomad cleaners and polishes

We will even send you a picture of your VERY OWN guitar during the FretWerx process, so you can see first hand the great care we take in making your new guitar the best it can be.

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!
