Surprisingly good
Jay Jay, 23.03.2020
This was not only my first acoustic but also my first Harley Benton (having a number of electric guitars already). Got to say right off the bat really impressed with the quality having seen many YouTube reviews of HB products, you can never really tell what is fact from fiction so had kind of reserved expectations of what I would actually get.

Guitar came double boxed which was a big plus. I have spent a few hours on it now and getting used the bigger body shape (than and electric). I purposely went for this model due to being smaller in frame and this being a little smaller than a dreadnought. Sits comfortably so feel i made the right choice. Build quality is exceptionally good for the price point. Really don't have any negative comments at all, feels well made. Fretwork is surprisingly good, actually significantly better than my Fender MIM fret edges. Can't feel and fret ends when playing and the neck is pretty smooth. Tuners seem fine and are holding tuning just fine. I tuned day 1 on arrival, retuned slightly day 2 and it has held tuning since (about a week now). Fishman preamp works great and built in tuner is pretty much spot on with my other tuners. Picks up nicely for recording in when I don't want it mic'd.

Has a lovely warm sound, maybe loses some volume being slightly smaller? For bedroom/studio though it is absolutely fine.

For the price point and quality I am not really finding any negatives, there are other more well known brands close to this price point so you could see those in store for comparison.

Maybe the veneer isn't the nicest to look at, I would probably have gone with a lighter colour guitar out of choice but they were all bigger dreadnoughts.

Overall, pleased with my purchase and the quality of the guitar. This will be my only acoustic and expect it will last for years to come.

Excellente Auditorium, tres bon rapport qualité prix
Fyl MorningStar, 02.11.2020
J'avais depuis plusieurs mois l'envie d'essayer une acoustique type Martin ou encore Taylor (format auditorium).

Mais ces marques sont clairement hors budget pour moi.

Après quelques recherches, j'ai fini par me tourner vers la marque Harley Benton.

J'ai commandé et reçu cette guitare en Octobre 2020
...et bien m'en a pris.

C'est un excellent instrument qui non seulement a une finition irréprochable mais qui sonne du feu de Dieu, même branchée dans un ampli.

Moi qui suis fan d'Eddie Vedder et de Pearl Jam, c'est un régal de m'amuser à jouer certains de leurs morceaux (La B. O. d'Into the Wild...)

Thomann propose en plus cette guitare en version gaucher, ce qui ne gâche rien.

Rien à redire... Du bonheur...

Ich bin sprachlos
iKaYooTo, 07.01.2021
Diese Gitarre ist wirklich ein Wunder. Ich habe sie mir nach einer Garantieretoure von einer Ibanez Jam Pack zugelegt.

Sie kam schon perfekt eingestellt an, die Saitenlage ist ein Traum und somit spielt sie sich schon fast von selbst.

Sie sieht dazu noch wunderschön aus, das Matt taugt mir richtig!

Von mir kriegt sie die maximale Bewertung, weiter so Harley Benton!
