Classical gas.

Royarthur, 06.05.2018
I have been playing guitar now for about 46 yrs. I had a career with my local government education department for a number of years teaching music and music technology to young people from about 12 to 25 yrs of age. Now, because of a serious spinal injury (please, no tap jokes),write and record mainly from home with a view to some wheelchair bound future gigs showcasing my own compositions.
Like a number of guitarist, I have not owned a nylon strung guitar for a great number of years and decided that it was about time that I did. My first ever guitar was a nylon classical and I wanted this sound instead of playing classical and barque pieces on steel strings. Browsing through the Thomann guitars I found this one coming in at just under £200 and gave it a go, I have not been disappointed.
The guitar arrived three days from dispatch to the UK, in Thomann's usual bomb proof, padded and double boxed packaging. The guitar out of the box was in good condition and almost in tune, just a very dry fret board that after a coat or two of lemon oil, was fine.
The guitar has a heavy mahogany body with a well matched solid spruce top, a very well set mahogany neck and Roseacer fret board. The two "sound holes" nice as they are, are for no more than show, being only a few mm deep and offering no real acoustic value at all. This guitar is really a solid bodied instrument, though in the silence of the night, it can be heard slightly unplugged and the aesthetics of the pseudo sound holes give a very classy vibe. It has a nicely cut nut and, for a classical type guitar, a very low action. The bridge is walnut and with a nice cream binding on the body and neck, all this adds up to a great looking, fantastically playable instrument.
Coming to the sound. I have tried this guitar through a number of amps, acoustic simulation F/X and straight in to my desk, so, this is a fairly well rounded review of the sound. I do not know the make or type of Piezo pickup but it works well. The volume sweep is good and smooth with no hint of distortion when flat out and produces a superb representation of all the main aspects of a good professional nylon classical guitar. The bass and treble do what they say and I found the bass at 40 to 50% and the treble at about 50 to 60% seems to work well for me.The sound then over all with just a hint of reverb, is super clean, lush, very well rounded and of a quality that sounds a great, great deal more than just under £200, by and large with this sound, build and ease of playing you feel like you have a five to £600 guitar, in your hands. A bit more reverb and volume and I had Bach swirling and dancing in my ears with a truly amazing tonality and timbre, fantastic. It is an instrument I would be happy and confident to use live in any situation and look forward to the day when I can again.
Once again, I have an absolutely unbeatable guitar for £196 and in terms of price, quality and service all I can say is, many thanks Thomann, you have done it yet again.

First of all I would like to say that the delivery from Germany to me in the UK was excellent. It was despatched on Monday morning and was put in my hands first thing on Thursday. Packaging was first class.

Upon opening the package I was immediately very pleased by the guitars finish and appearance, it looks great, it feels good in the hands and its quite light too. The 'solid' body has had cavities machined into it for this reason I guess, not to mention housing the electronics of course.

Regarding sound, unplugged the guitar is rather quiet as one might expect but it is loud enough for quiet practise but wow! plug it in and now hear it go. I play through a Roland Micro cube amplifier for practise, busking and even on gigs I plug the P.A. into my Cube so I have control of my sound. This guitar sounds fabulous through this amplifier. Not just for clean nylon sound, it is possible to overdrive too without fear of feedback.

Now for my one complaint, the action was too high at the nut end for my preference, so, very carefully, with a standard hacksaw blade, I have deepened the grooves in the nut where the strings sit thus lowering the action substantially. Tip, I also used the blade to set the gap between strings and top of the first fret. Please, only attempt this if you are very confident in your skills. I take no responsibility.

I bought this guitar as a backup really but having tried it, it will now be my first choice, particularly when playing with my band as I find it very comfortable for playing whilst I am standing up, due to the thin body, at last I am not the only one sitting down.

Another feature I really like is the positioning and type of controls for volume, tone and bass. It is SO much easier to make a quick adjustment on the fly rather than trying to do it on the usual sliders mounted on the top side of all other electro acoustics.

Summing up then, I consider this guitar better than the Stagg equivalent which costs more and in my opinion has a 'thinner' sound on the treble strings and far too much sustain on the bass strings. For the price of the Harley Benton Nylon it is a really nice instrument and I love it.
