Superb guitar

14.01.2016
I don't normally write reviews, in fact I think this is my first 'proper' one!! Just had to share my views on this guitar....
Having read many reviews and watched youtube videos I decided to take the plunge and see what all the fuss was about with these Harley Benton guitars, so I sold a couple of 'big name' guitars to help finance / justify some new toys and bought this guitar an a TE-90QM HH (see other review).
Given how highly others had rated these HB's I was pretty excited about getting them in my hands and seeing how they performed but this was tempered by a level of 'realism' given how affordable they are and the fact that others had reported some quality and initial set-up issues.
Maybe I was just lucky, but this little Martin 00-15M clone is a really superb guitar in any company and for the price paid is simply incredible.
Right out the box the set-up was exceptionally playable, the neck may need a little relief added and the action could probably be dropped a touch but I will let it settle down and re-evaluate this in a week or so. Don't get me wrong, the action is very very acceptable and is one of the most comfortable acoustic guitars I have played - this is aided by the nice slim and comfortable neck (I am always a little worried about purchasing guitars without getting my [small] hands on them first!!). The guitar really does play every bit as well as my Breedlove that was ~10x more expensive ;-).
If I were being super critical .... the neck has a couple of TINY imperfections that you would never notice and the single strap button would look better in metal rather than plastic but in reality I will be unlikely to play this with a strap anyway...
This will now be my 'acoustic of choice' for regular playing / practising. At this price you shouldn't really be too bothered if it gets a little bit damaged, but I already know that I will get pretty upset if this sweet little guitar comes to any harm......

You just can't buy best for the price

30.03.2017
I got this guitar today and I have to say, this is really something.

Every damn thing about this one is perfect and I cannot belive that i paid so little.

The finnish is near flawless, and everything top quality with just a few minor, really minor, spots where u can see the glue.

Other than that, damn this looks beatiful.

The sound is amazing and the guitar came with the set up done just right. No fret ends, no buzzing frets, no nothing.

I still can't belive that I paid this low for a guitar like this.

This is my first harley benton so my expectations were very low, but when i strated to play it and to fell the way that it played, my god was I impressed.

Forget about buying expensive. You can't beat it for this price and this quality.

I wish i could say to every guitarrist u just wants an acoustic to play at homem and have fun to buy this one. You won't regret it. Not one bit.

I just put it down to write this, but i'm running late and I have to go play with my new baby.

Congrats harley benton and thomann for making such a kickass instrument.
