Nice guitar, but arrived unplayable

Appearance:

The guitar seemed attractive enough on the photos but upon arriving I discovered I didn't personally like it's "showyness". I am personally do not like the slightly tacky fretdots, as well as the shiny, reflective body.

Setup:

Came with unused strings which sounded beautiful upon tuning up. Fret at 43mm at nut width is very comfortable to play. Action also nice and low.
However, there appears to be some sort of buzzing within the guitar especially when playing 4/6th strings at the E note. This was very upsetting as I had ordered the 30scm earlier which had the exact same problem. The guitar is thus unusable, unless I brought it to a lutier, but I decided instead to return it.

Sound:

Beautiful sound (if i ignore the buzzing). The exp 16 sounded amazing on this guitar. Nice lows and crsipy highs.

Hardware: I said this on the 30scm earlier but I am not a fan of these tuners at all.

Conclusion:
I have sent the guitar back due to the technical problem and I ordered the 30scm solid body all acoustic. It just arrived today and sounds beautiful without any buzz problems. I will probably add pickups to it at a later stage but for now it is perfect for homeplay.

WHAT A GREAT ACOUSTIC FOR THE MONEY.

I always wanted a Martin D-28 or D-45 acoustic guitar but the cost was prohibitive, they cost £1000s and I couldn't justify spending that much. Then I came across this guitar.

A quick history lesson; in 1933, Gene Autry wanted "the biggest, fanciest" Martin he could have, so Martin obliged and came up with the D-45. The D-45 was a dreadnought guitar based on the D-28 with luxury ornamentation (the "45" designation). The Harley Benton CLD-41SE is based on a Martin D-41, which was the more affordable model of the Martin D-45.

I can only say that the Harley Benton Custom Line CLD-41SE acoustic is one fantastic guitar for the price. I've had experience of buying a few Chinese made guitars over the internet and the experience is usually a bad one. They are built to a budget and usually come with lots of problems. This guitar on the other hand is very well built and the finish was perfect - the rosewood looks gorgeous in the sunlight! The only fault I found was that the bottom strap pin was out by about 1mm from the centre line, damn!

The specification is brilliant: solid Sitka spruce top, rosewood body, scalloped X-bracing build, mahogany neck, natural satin finish, gold diecast tuners, Indian rosewood fingerboard with abalone hexagon inlays, abalone body binding and rosette, bound fretboard, bone nut, compensated bone saddle, rosewood bridge and a Fishman Isys+ preamp system with integrated chromatic tuner, phew!

I really like the neck, it's very playable. Thomann's description says it's "modified Oval V-shape", but, in my opinion, I think that's wrong, as I can't feel the 'V' profile? It feels more like a modern Fender 'C' shaped neck, which is 42mm at the nut; this is 43mm and it feels slightly chunkier in the hand, but not by much. It's a really nice neck, it even has a Martin diamond shaped volute! The Thomann description also states that the guitar comes with "DLX chrome Thomann diecast tuners", they are actually gold machine heads. They look like Grover machine heads with nice fat kidney buttons. The tuners feel very well made; I would say the ratio is about 18:1, they don't slip, they feel nice and solid and best of all, the guitar stays in tune.

The sound from the guitar is great, either acoustically or through the Fishman Isys+ preamp system. I've played my guitar through a Kemper rack amp and JBL speakers, using a Fishman acoustic profile and it sounded fantastic; I was very impressed. The Fishman Isys+ preamp system works really well and even the phase button works well; it improves bass response at low volume and suppresses feedback at high volume. The chromatic tuner is very good as well. The OEM Isys+ manual is on the Fishman web site.

The guitar came with D'Addario EXP16 Coated Phosphor Bronze, Light, 12-53 strings, which are bit too heavy for me, but they do give a nice deep bass response and the action was a bit too high. I usually use D'Addario, but I ordered a set of Harley Benton Phosphor Bronze, 10s, at the same time just to see what they are like. They're a bargain for the price and a lot easier on the fingers.

Overall, everything about the guitar is great: the price, the feel, the look, the satin finish, the woods (lovely smell) and best of all, the sound it produces. If your are after a very good acoustic for relatively little money, you can't go wrong with a Harley Benton Custom Line CLD-41SE six-string acoustic.

Highly recommended.

UPDATE
If you need to change or want to upgrade the saddle, the Graphtech TUSQ PQ-9272-C0 (72x3mm) acoustic compensated saddle is a perfect fit. Just reduce the height with some wet and dry emery paper to suit your playing style. Go to [LINK] to find out how to fit the saddle properly.
