sensational instrument, tone, set up ,playability all brilliant
CliffWales , 22.08.2020
Just received the CLA -28VE WN yesterday and have not been able to put this guitar down for the last 24 hours, its simply sensational straight out of the box. Lets start with the set up - it was perfectly set up at the factory or at Thomann, low action 2.5mm at fret 14, intonation perfect, the tuners are great, even the factory fitted strings are fine, but will change these anyway this week.so The materials and construction, is top notch, lightweight, small, a beautifully engineered neck 45mm nut is so much easier to play than the standard 43, you wouldn't think 2mm is a lot but it is for me, its perfect. The tone of this guitar is nothing short of brilliant - I"m more about finger picking than strumming , the clarity of each note played is excellent, mid and high notes and even the bass notes. Only played through the pick up briefly but everything works as it should, and again a lovely tone and clarity.Aesthetically pleasing as well with the walnut back and sides.......not much else to say really, except that if you're in the market for an auditorium sized acoustic with sitka top for deep rich tones ideal for a finger picking style then this is a guitar worth serious consideration, for the price its great value - I'm delighted with this purchase,

Very good guitar
Renat R., 18.09.2019
Sold my taylor guitar and got this one instead.
I absolutely love this instrument. It looks good, sounds great, feels nice. I like wider nut, because I'm also a classical guitar player.

The string action was a bit high for me, so I adjusted the trussrod. Wrench with instructions is included, also a spare bridge pin.

You can get so much guitar for so low price. Why would anyone buy something else.

Harley Benton guitars are remarkable.

CON: seems like case options aren't as wide as for dreadnought guitar, but this one fits perfectly in thomann classical guitar case.

As a beginner guitar player, I can't provide much input about the value of this instrument for more experienced players, but for me it is a beautiful guitar with perfect satin finish, which sounds awesome. D'Addario strings have nice aggressive sound in the lower range and ringing heights. I really like the wider nut, so if you have short and chubby fingers like me, you will love it.

I don't now what to say...
phrov, 15.01.2020
When I ordered I didn't think I would get anything like this. I have no words. Build quality, setup, sound, and feel, everything is above expectations! Especially for that money. 299€ is nothing for guitar like this. I recommend it to everyone looking for a good instrument. Greetings from Slovenia.
