I was making a funny.Awesome. I don't doubt your experience. I didn't say all people would be confused. If you are on here, you are part of the more informed guitar buying crowd. You are someone who gets into the details. I was referring to the more general guitar buying public. Now, Kiesel's sales model makes it difficult to be confused during a new purchase but I could see situations where someone not in-the-know could be fooled on a used purchase. However, that could easily be offset by doing a basic amount of research. I don't see HB as being egregious thieves. I was just commenting on how similar they looked to me at first glance and that some of the more average guitar buyers could be fooled.
I imagine it was dreamed up by marketing. "How can we export this to America? We can't call it Das Lederhosen, needs to sound english and draw upon their greed and lust. They like Harley Davidson so let's use Harley. They equate a Bentley to a fine precision car but Harley Bentley doesn't fall off the tongue, how about Harley Benton!" LOLWho is Harley Benton the person, though? If there isn't one, why name the company Harley Benton? I find that kind of silly.
In case you haven't guessed, I don't particularly take the brand seriously as a guitar company.
We can always discuss your eyebrows again, but I'm not sure what more there is to say.This is great fodder for another totally uninteresting episode of the guitologist
I actually trimmed them the other day and noticed some greys poking through.We can always discuss your eyebrows again, but I'm not sure what more there is to say.
Maybe if you came up with a unique new way to trim/style them?
If you do, be sure and submit a patent. That way you can start a thread about a cease and desist letter when someone copies your cool new look.

I’m not thrilled by it
I’ve found that I’ve been to busy to start threads about such things lately though. I won’t start a thread unless I can dedicate enough time to keep it at the quality I’m known for. That’s the aynirar promise
They didn't invent the Strat or the headless design. They put them together. Wow, they are pioneers! Maybe if I put a headless neck on (insert guitar here) I can....nah I don't really care, just bustin' your balls. No horse in this race.There's a big difference between objecting to someone profiting from a close copy of one of your designs and trying to claim ownership of a headless Strat. The HB is a direct copy of an original design, so I don't see any reason why Kiesel shouldn't object -
