Harley Benton has given its CST-24 and CST-24T a summer refresh, offering the classy budget electric guitars in three smart new finishes – Amber Stripes, Purple Burst, and Vintage Sunburst.

Now, this is a guitar you can pick up for $238 from Thomann, but just look at those finishes, the three-dimensional figured maple veneer will make you wonder if the German retail giant has misplaced a decimal point.
