Great Upgrade Guitar

03.02.2015
What a great guitar for the pennies!! I ordered the cheaper Harley Benton CG-45 NS before this and I have to say that guitar was good, this is even better!!!!

Firstly lets talk about looks. The Mahogany veneer and binding is faultless, the binding has a subtle black pinstripe. which looks great against the wood and binding. The finish looks flawless with no obvious defects or runs.

Secondly the guitar is setup pretty good. The frets are level and dressed nicely. The action is fine and there are no buzzes or strange noises. The finger board is smooth and nicely oiled.

All in all I'm very impressed and would recommend this to anyone, gone are the days for have to spend thousands on a decent go too guitar.

I personally changed the strings on this and its made a world of difference.

Good guitar, great price :-)

Just superb

Dusko, 14.02.2017
I thought it was time to get a solid top steel string acoustic guitar but money is short so I looked at the more affordable brands, and knowing from my electric Harley Bentons that they do good quality instruments I looked no further I went for this one which is the cheapest in their 000 guitars.

I was not surprised to receive a very well built guitar. Satin finish perfect. Neck just right, not fat not too thin. No fret buzz at all, frets nicely polished and finished. Fretboard needed no oiling. The strings were fresh looking (no rust or discolorations). Tuners hold well in tune. The action is 2mm - 2.5mm perfect for me.

Its a very projecting sound, very clear but also has some depth to it even though its not a dreadnought guitar. ?

Just buy this you will not regret it and if you do Thomann has a fantastic return policy and is very customer service orinetated.
