This is an outstandingly good guitar I would wholeheartedly recommend.
Bernard P 12.11.2021
Materials: great quality woods, very well crafted. Fretwork excellent. Die cast tuners.
Intonation: first thing I checked and it’s as good as intonation can be.
Action: perfect for me, on the low side but not so low as to attenuate the strings when strumming. Quality control apparently checked string height and recorded this on a little card.

I chose this guitar for the 48mm neck and at last I can play a basic A chord without my fingers fouling the other strings.

Pros: everything; this is a fabulous guitar out of the box; because of the woods, it will improve with age; maybe I got a particularly good one but this instrument sings out beautifully and gives off wonderful harmonics.
Cons: tuners are not as precise as I would like but this is certainly not a deal-breaker; it’s possible to tune the guitar as accurately as it’s possible to tune a guitar.

Summary: blown away! An absolute gem of a guitar.

Great product. Good value
Pomfret Paul 15.01.2022
Having bought other guitars from Thomann , I wanted to try a guitar with a slightly wider neck and I must say that I am very pleased with this guitar. It has a good tone, good action, and is very playable straight out of the box. There are a couple of marks on the front which are under the varnish but are not too visible but for this price delivered to the UK one cannot complain. Overall I am impressed by both the guitar and the speedy service. It took just a calendar week from ordering (Friday) to delivery (Thursday). Well done Thomann

Spectacular value for money
GuruGlyn 05.10.2021
I have around 40 guitars, I’ve had most makes, Taylor’s, Martins, Guilds etc
but this guitar is absolutely amazing for the money , it actually compares favourably with all of them. I’ve been playing for over 60 years pretty well every genre of music from finger picking to heavy strumming and this piece of kit copes with it all either plugged in or unplugged. I have no hesitation in recommending it, I’m certain you won’t be disappointed.

Exceptional guitar for the money
Davor Brklja?i? 09.12.2021
Although in 250 euros range, this guitar would cost at least 350-400 euros from other manufacturers. Also, this guitar is special because it has 48 mm NUT width, and finding that feature in this price range is unique. Action is good, overall quality is high, sound is warm and crispy. Guitar is somewhat pretty loud, so have that in mind if you want a more quiet alternative. I haven't had experience with Harley Benton until I ordered this guitar for my dad, and after playing it I want another Harley Benton acoustic for myself.
