Great deal
Great Dane , 22.04.2019
This is my second Harley Benton. The first was the ST 62. That came with the pickups pushed and out of whack. Strange because the box was not damaged so suspect poor Quality control? This seems to me the underlying theme with these Harley Benton guitars. Sometimes they are a hit, others the are a miss. That was very disappointing indeed .

The CLF-200 WN however was completely satisfactory. I am very happy with this guitar.
For the price this is a great deal. It stays in tune , has a nice clear chime and looks pretty darn good. Of course there are some minor aesthetic issues such as inlays not completely even on the bridge and also there are little blemishes under the finish here and there . However, this really doesn't matter because the guitar is completely playable and fun . The little issues are only noticeable if you try to find something wrong .
I love this guitar and I think that Harley Benton has come a long way. I hope that they continue to develop and create quality instruments at a great price in the future.
More importantly , I hope that they reach a point when deciding whether or not to purchase a Harley Benton is left more to certainty of receiving a great product and less of a gamble.
In terms of Thomanns service , they are an A PLUS for sure! Thomann Rocks .

Wow and Wow!
HarleyBentonRocks, 09.11.2018
Wow for looks and Wow for build, playability and sound!

After I sold my Guild Westerly M-140 on Ebay, I have been ordering (and sending back) several guitars from Thomann during the last couple of weeks, some of them great, some of them disappointing. During this ?trial? period I was very pleasantly surprised by the build and sound quality of Thomann's Harley Benton guitars and the end result is that I now own 2 Harley Benton GS Travel guitars (Mahogany and Spruce, 89 euros each, great fun to play :-), a Harley Benton Custom Line CLA-15M (169 euros, great sound, great to play, fantastic guitar!) and now the Harley Benton CLF-200 WN parlor guitar.

I was really looking forward to this guitar and really hoped I would not be disappointed after reading all the positive reviews and watching the available YouTube clips that are available. Unpacking the guitar was the first WOW moment, what a great looking guitar! Build, finish and inlays are just incredible, what a beauty :-))

But I did not order this guitar for just sitting on it?s stand and be beautiful, so how does it sound and play? Let me tell you that the YouTube videos do not do this guitar justice and do not give you a good impression of the full sound of this parlor guitar. What really surprises me is the bass this small(er) guitar produces, I did not expect that and combined with the clear trebles, this produces a very nice and full sound. Especially when playing fingerstyle (which I prefer) the guitar produces a nice warm and intimate sound. But also playing with a pick will not disappoint you!

The build and finish are immaculate, as a personal preference I made the following adjustments:

1. I replaced the strings with my favorite Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze Custom Light 011-052
2. I adjusted the truss rod to lower the action to 2.25mm (low E, 12th fret) which results in a very nice and comfortable playing neck.

With these 2 adjustments this beauty plays like butter and really sings. But again, this is a personal preference and made with playing fingerstyle in mind.

The only thing I have my doubts about is the quality of tuners but they can be replaced.

With this guitar I came to the end of my ?journey? to find a not too expensive, good sounding and nice playing guitar. I never expected to end up with 4 great Harley Benton guitars for the price I sold my Guild Westerly on Ebay.

Thank you for producing these great affordable instruments and proving that quality can be affordable for everyone. And thank you very much for your service and patience!

Thomann and Harley Benton rock!
